The Global Community Yearbook is a one-stop resource for all researchers studying international law generally or international tribunals specifically. The Yearbook has established itself as an authoritative source of reference on global legal issues and international jurisprudence. It includesanalysis of the most significant global trends in a way that allows readers to monitor the development of the global legal order from several perspectives. The Global Community Yearbook publishes annually in two-volume editions of carefully chosen primary source material and corresponding expert commentary. The general editor, Professor Giuliana Ziccardi Capaldo, employs her vast expertise in international law to select excerpts from important courtopinions and also to choose experts from around the world who contribute essay-guides to illuminate those cases. Although the main focus is recent case law from the major international tribunals and regional courts, the first volume of each year's edition features expert articles by renownedscholars who address broader themes in current and future developments in international law and global policy, themes that appear throughout the case law of the many courts covered by the series as a whole. The Global Community Yearbook has thus become not just an indispensable window to recentjurisprudence: the series now also serves to prepare researchers for the issues facing emerging global law. The 2012 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. The Yearbook has established itself as an authoritative resource for research and guidance on thejurisprudence of both U.N.-based tribunals and regional courts. The 2012 edition continues to provide expert coverage of diverse tribunals from the criminal tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, to economically-based tribunals such as ICSID and the WTO Dispute Resolution panel. This edition includes expert introductory essays by prominent scholars in the realm of international law, on topics as diverse and current as the global governance of energy and the global health policy. In the court opinion excerpts and expert commentary included in the 2012 edition, researcherswill find detailed guidance on a rich diversity of legal topics, from the protection of fundamental rights in the European Union in the wake of the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty to challenges relating to ICSID's jurisdiction over "investments." On these questions and a host of others, thisedition provides to students, scholars, and practitioners alike a valuable combination of expert discussion and direct quotes from the court opinions to which that discussion relates.
