Top ten developments in international law in 2018

This year was, once again, one of great political turmoil. The international legal order is not immune from the impact of the rise of populism and increasingly strained relations between many of the world’s most powerful states. A positive view is that we are witnessing a period of global re-adjustment. A more negative take is that there is a real risk of the fabric of the international legal order, created so carefully in the aftermath of the First and Second World Wars, unravelling. One of thi...

How politicians tried to sell Brexit to us

If we examine the two campaigns in terms of their message strategy, i.e. the way in which they sought to influence swing voters, significant differences become apparent.Remain is widely regarded to have been poorly executed – not a difficult accusation to sustain, given that it lost – however, I’d argue that it was not the execution, but the message strategy that was flawed. From a brand communication perspective its campaign is built on a classic proposition: Britain – Stronger in Europe. This ...

Place of the Year 2018: Mexico, a year in review

January: In mid-January, a group of divers from the Gran Acuifero Maya (GAM) project connected two underwater caverns in eastern Mexico, revealing what was believed to be the biggest flooded cave on the planet. This discovery could potentially inform more about the ancient Maya civilization and lead to further understanding of the development of the people’s culture in the region prior to the Spanish conquest.February: In February, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck southeastern Mexico, with the ...

What Lies Behind the Malaise of the West? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Is it coincidence or contagion, this malady that seems to have suddenly induced paralysis in the leading nations of the West?With lawyer-fixer Michael Cohen's confession that he colluded with Donald Trump in making hush money payoffs to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, America's stage is set for a play that will run two years.As Democrats test the waters for a presidential run by savaging Trump, the establishment Trump detest...

Did emotional appeals help to win the Brexit referendum?

“[Brexit] was a big fundamental decision: an emotional decision,” said Nigel Farrage in an interview with The Guardian’s John Harris in September 2018. For once at least the former UKIP leader, a key figure in the campaign to Leave the European Union, was 100% right.Since the shock result of the referendum in June 2016, the Government’s tortuous attempt to successfully disengage the UK from the European Union has effectively been the only news story. Indeed, Brexit coverage in traditional media ...

International disability rights and the dilemma of domestic courts

Since 1992, 3 December has been the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. According to the World Report on Disability, approximately one in five people in the world are disabled and are at heightened risk of exclusion, disadvantage, and poverty.Law plays an important role in tackling this inequality and exclusion. For the past decade, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (the Disability Convention) – an instrument of international law – has been both...

Forty years of democratic Spain

Spaniards are celebrating with some fanfare the 40th anniversary of their democratic constitution that was approved overwhelmingly in a referendum on 6 December 1978, sealing the end of the 36-year dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, the victor of the country’s civil war.Whichever way one looks at it, Spain has been transformed profoundly since then. Be it economically with, for example, the creation of significant number of multinationals (more than Italy) or the world’s second-largest to...

Remaking Europe after the First World War

In the wake of the November 11, 1918 armistice between Germany and the Allies, high-minded idealism confronted a mélange of very unpleasant realities. All the belligerents had claimed to be fighting for a noble set of aims, and the United States President, Woodrow Wilson, went further. He proposed the creation of a supranational agency, the League of Nations, to govern international relations in a pacific age of transparent, altruistic diplomacy. The peace settlement, Wilson anticipated, would i...

We Need a Revolution in Trade Enforcement

Opinion We Need a Revolution in Trade Enforcement USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Since he was a candidate, President Trump has said free trade must also be fair. He has consistently challenged anti-competitive and unfair practices by our trading partners while working to forge new agreements.The most recent example of this is the announced deal with Mexico – which his critics had claimed would never happen – and the potential deal with Canada, which has been spurred and shaped by Trump’s toughness.Pr...

Brexit threatens food supplies and Ministers know it

The story on the front page of The Sunday Times on 3 June 2018 pulled no punches. Headlined “Revealed: plans for Doomsday Brexit”, it reported on leaked government papers planning for a “no deal” Brexit scenario. They warned that the port of Dover could collapse on day one of exiting the EU, with major food shortages within a few days and medicines shortages within two weeks. It seems barely comprehensible that a democratically elected government would risk the well-being of its people in this w...

'Cake': Europe's new codeword for Britain's impossible Brexit demands

Boris Johnson is ‘pro having it and eating it’ – but what about ‘a body or cake of laws and customs’?The EU, we learned this week, now refers to any impossible demand by Britain as “cake”, including the leaked Brexit white paper. It suspected “cake would be coming”, and made the appropriate arrangements. Lest this put us in mind of a clown fight, let us recall Boris Johnson’s clever policy on cake: he is “pro having it and pro eating it”.The impossibility of having your cake and eating it is a m...

European Public Law: facing the challenge of decline

In recent years, Europe has lost much of its promise. The financial crisis, the debt crisis, the refugee crisis, the apparent systemic deficiencies of national and supranational governance structures, as well as a fading confidence in democratic government, have led to a certain impression of “messiness.” If we take a look at Europe’s current legal and political landscapes, we find ourselves, in our imagination, in the Rhine-Ruhr-Area: in Europe’s biggest, confusing, and most intricate megacity ...

Christian Madsbjerg on The Social Environment of Business and Sales – Episode #111

As a professional salesperson, did you even realize that there is a social environment in business in sales? If you did, you were probably one of the more successful salespeople in your organization. If you didn’t, you probably aren’t. That is one of the takeaways from this conversation with Christian Madsbjerg, author of the new book, “Sensemaking.” Anthony believes his book is the must-read book of 2018 for every business person. It’s a treatise on the intersection of AI and culture and makes ...

May's Brexit ‘dividend’ is imaginary – there is no Brackpot

Theresa May’s reference to a ‘dividend’ implies a mathematically precise calculation of how Brexit will boost NHS funding. In truth the sums don’t add upThis week Theresa May announced that she’ll spend more on the NHS because of the “Brexit dividend” (Brividend). Like a “jobs-first Brexit” or a unicorn, it’s a thing that’s entirely imaginary, since the likely loss of tax revenue due to slower growth after Brexit will more than offset the slightly more than 1% of the government budget we current...

The Rise and Fall of the British Nation and These Islands review – the fate of 'bullshit Britain'

Even a historian identified with optimism about the UK despairs about the country’s current predicament. Is revival possible?Earlier this decade we all watched as France entered one of its terminal historical crises. Now it is Britain that has lost definition – or should that be England, or the United Kingdom? No longer can a national intellectual such as George Orwell set down a few thoughts about our aversion to conscription and fascism and our liking for a drink, as he did in 1941 in The Lion...

Performing for their lives: LGBT individuals seeking asylum

The UN Refugee Convention promises safe haven to individuals who, having crossed an international boundary, can prove a well-founded fear of persecution based upon one of five categories: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. Since its framing in 1951, the Convention has been revised several times – in 1967, 1969, 1984, and 2011 – to also include those fleeing war or political strife; however, the five original categories remain unchanged.

'Please, please remain': Bernard-Henri Lévy performs one-man Brexit play

French showman-philosopher begs London audience to save the European project It was, said audience member Anne von Bennigsen afterwards, “really very French. Fascinating, but just not very ... practical. Nothing particularly concrete. Still, he’s a French intellectual, I suppose.

25 years of contemporary war crimes tribunals

Much as a single discovery can transform science, paradigm shifts in international law can emerge with astonishing speed. Twenty-five years ago, the UN Security Council sparked such a shift when it created a war crimes tribunal to punish those responsible for “ethnic cleansing” in the former Yugoslavia. At first widely dismissed as a fig leaf for the UN’s failure to halt ethnic violence in the heart of Europe, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), based in The Hag...

First they came for Josh Blackman: why censorship isn’t the answer [video]

Having been thinking, reading, speaking, and writing about “hate speech” over the last four decades, I had come to believe that I had nothing new to say, and that all arguments on all sides of the topic had been thoroughly aired. That view began to change several years ago, as I started to see increasing activism on campus and beyond in sup­port of various equal rights causes. Having been a student activ­ist myself, I have been thrilled by the recent resurgence of student engagement. I have been...
