These two lectures cover attempts to receive redress in foreign courts by states or individuals who perceive damages from subversion or revolt and international laws on redress caused by breach of contract. Lawrence Collins analyzes several cases in which states or individuals asserted their personal and property rights in cases of subversion, revolution or other forms of disruption in foreign courts. These include the claims of the Emperor of Austria against subversive radicals and counterfeiters, of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea against various opponents, the Spycatcher cases and claims against or by the Shah of Iran, Baby Doc Duvalier and Ferdinand Marcos. In the second lecture, John Y. Gotanda surveys international laws from Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East on damages in lieu of performance due to breach of contract, along with case studies and relevant information on fees and costs.
