The Global Community Yearbook is a one-stop resource for all researchers studying international law generally or international criminal tribunals specifically. The Global Community Yearbook appears annually in two-volume editions of carefully chosen primary source material and correspondingexpert commentary. The general editor, Professor Giuliana Ziccardi Capaldo, employs her vast expertise in international law to select excerpts from important court opinions and also to choose experts from around the world who contribute essay-guides to illuminate those cases. Although the mainfocus is recent case law from the major international tribunals and regional courts, the first volume of each year's edition always features expert articles by renowned scholars who address broader themes in international law, themes that appear throughout the case law of the many courts covered bythe series as a whole.This year's edition of the Global Community Yearbook both updates readers on the important work of long-standing international tribunals and introduces readers to more novel topics in international law, such as whether human rights treaties apply to states who lack effective jurisdiction in theregion where violations occur and (in this era of angry investors) what kind of investments qualify for jurisdiction before international dispute tribunals. The Yearbook has already established itself as the authoritative resource for research and guidance on the jurisprudence of both U.N.-basedtribunals and regional courts. The 2008 edition of the Yearbook again fulfills that sterling reputation through expert coverage of not just criminal tribunals like the ones for Yugoslavia and Rwanda but also such economically-based tribunals as the International Court for the Settlement ofInvestment Disputes and the WTO Dispute Resolution panel. Far from merely continuing her valuable presentation of updated court-reportage, though, General Editor Giuliana Ziccardi Capaldo has this year solicited expert introductory essays by prominent scholars in the realm of international law. Byincluding essays on topics as diverse and current as displacement crimes and globalization's vulnerability, Capaldo has this year expanded the scope of the Yearbook to provide guidance on issues beyond those that appear in courts and tribunals. The Global Community Yearbook has thus become not justan indispensable window to recent past jurisprudence: the series now also serves to prepare researchers for future international case law.Volume 1: The first volume of the 2008 edition of Global Community Yearbook presents three categories of material wholly beneficial to any international law-researcher: International tribunals' court opinions, excerpted with scholarly skill by General Editor Giuliana Ziccardi Capaldo; expertguidance on those cases in the form of commentary by globally recognized luminaries whom Ziccardi has chosen personally; and more broadly focused introductory essays by similarly prominent scholars whom Ziccardi has also selected for that purpose. In the introductory essays, those scholars take onthe current, controversial topics of a state's liability for genocide and economic cooperation among EU members. Those incisive and knowledgeable introductory articles help frame the debates currently raging in international law before this volume leads the reader on to expert commentary on thenoteworthy cases from this past year's dockets of the following tribunals:-The International Court of Justice-The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea-The WTO Dispute Resolution System-International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia-International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda Ziccardi has arranged the sections of this volume according to that list of tribunals, and she has included a short, targeted index for each of those sections, making any research in this volume efficient and fruitful.Volume 2: This second volume of the 2008 edition of Global Community Yearbook gives researchers an illuminating tour through the varied and dynamic law of regional and organizational courts. In the court opinion excerpts and expert commentary that fill this volume, researchers will find detailedguidance on a rich diversity of legal topics, from whether health care constitutes a human right to the elements that qualify an investment for a tribunal dispute. On these questions and a host of others, this volume provides to students, scholars, and practitioners alike a valuable combination ofexpert discussion and direct quotes from the court opinions to which that discussion relates. The courts covered by this particular volume are:-The Court of First Instance of the European Communities-The Court of Justice of the European Communities-The European Court of Human Rights-Inter-American Court of Human Rights-Iran-United States Claims Tribunal-International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes
