08 Dec New York University Journal of International Law & Politics, Vol. 44:1 Opinio Juris Online Discussion
This is the first project in a new partnership between the NYU Journal of International Law & Politics and Opinio Juris. This series of postings will feature reactions from leading scholars to our three forthcoming articles to be published in 44:1. The editorial board of the Journal would like to thank Opinio Juris and Professor Peggy McGuinness, as well as the authors and contributors, for making this project possible.
On Thursday, December 8, Chiara Giorgetti of Georgetown and Marko Milanovic of the University of Nottingham will react to “Third State Obligations and the Enforcement of International Law,” coauthored by Lea Brilmayer and Isaias Yemane Tesfalidet, both of Yale Law School. The authors argue that non-parties to an international dispute or conflict are bound by international law to not contribute to another state’s violations of international law, and further, that this obligation applies broadly and beyond limited categories of human rights violations.
On Friday, December 9, the discussion will shift to Ming-Sung Kuo’s article on global administrative law entitled: “Taming Governance with Legality? Critical Reflections upon Global Administrative Law as Small-c Global Constitutionalism.” The respondents to the piece will be David Gartner of the Sandray Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State, and Karl-Heinz Ladeur of the University of Hamburg.
Also on December 9, we will post Shana Tabak’s article “False Dichotomies of Transitional Justice: Gender, Conflict and Combatants in Colombia.” Using feminist scholarship on transitional justice and the armed conflict in Colombia as a case study, Tabak identifies and criticizes three false dichotomies in transitional justice that disservice female combatants and women affected by armed conflict. Ruti Teitel of New York Law School and Vasuki Nesiah of NYU School of Law will react to this article.
We anticipate this will be the first of many successful endeavors with Opinio Juris, and we hope you enjoy it.
