Weekend Roundup: April 19-25, 2014

by An Hertogen

This week on Opinio Juris, we teamed up with EJIL:Talk! to bring you a transatlantic symposium on Karen Alter’s book The New Terrain of International LawYou can find Karen’s introduction to her book here, followed by comments by Tonya Putnam, Roger Alford and Jacob Katz Cogan. Karen’s reply is here.

Other guests this week were Paula Gaeta who explained why she is not convinced by the ICC’s latest decision on President al-Bashir’s immunity from arrest, and Mike Ramsay who discussed Argentina v. NML Capital and the FISA.

Deborah commented on Steve Vladeck’s essay on post-AUMF detention and posted a surreply to his response over at Just Security

Peter looked at Courts’ involvement in foreign affairs following the US Supreme Court’s decision to accept the Jerusalem passport case on the merits.

Julian explained why in his opinion the Marshall Islands’ US complaint and ICJ applications against the world’s nuclear powers is not going to get very far.

Kristen argued that if we want more effective multilateral sanctions, we should examine not just the design of sanction regimes, but also their termination.

Finally, Jessica wrapped up the news and I listed events and announcements. To all our junior readers out there, there is now less than a week to enter an abstract for our second Emerging Voices symposium.

Many thanks to our guest contributors and have a great weekend!
