This volume contains five chapters that review new developments in international law, focusing on the integration of legal orders. They discuss how international human rights law is implemented and interpreted by the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights, and the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child; the problem of legality and illegality of exercise of sovereign powers in an occupied territory, focusing on Turkey's activities in the occupied territory of Cyprus; how the European Court of Human Rights has developed the consensus doctrine between the 47 states party to the European Convention on Human Rights on difficult societal questions and whether this doctrine could be used by the US Supreme Court to determine the legal status of the death penalty; whether Russia's or Ukraine's bilateral investment treaties apply in Crimea; and the UK's newest doctrine of recognition of governments, with discussion of the Estrada Doctrine. Contributors work in law and international relations in Europe, Kenya, and the US. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
