about

This volume presents a high-level scholarly discussion on whether the concept of solidarity functions as a structural principle of international law and to what extent it has become a full-fledged legal principle. Each contributor addresses these questions by examining normative operations of the principle of solidarity in different branches of international law - including international disaster law, international humanitarian law, the law of development cooperation and international environmental law - as well as the relationship between the principle of solidarity and other legal principles such as the responsibility to protect and intergenerational equity.

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:". Insgesamt kann den Herausgebern dieses Bandes und den Mitwirkenden am Symposium vom Herbst 2008 nur gratuliert werden. Dieser relativ schmale Band bietet gerade durch die Aufnahme vieler, z.T. sehr konträrer Meinungen eine unverzichtbare Grundlage in allen zukünftigen Bemühungen, dem Solidaritätsgrundsatz im Völkerrecht mehr Gehalt und der diesbezüglichen wissenschaftlichen Diskussion Struktur und eindeutigere Richtung zu geben." (Peter Hilpold, in: Zeitschrift für ausländisches öffentliche Recht und Völkerrecht ZaöRV, 2011, Vol. 71, S. 838 f.)
