Summary

The Global Community Yearbookis a one-stop resource for all researchers studying international law generally or international criminal tribunals specifically.The Global Community Yearbookpublishes 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 court opinions 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 renowned scholars who address broader themes in international law, themes that appear throughout the case law of the many courts covered by the series as a whole.The Global Community Yearbookhas thus become not just an indispensable window to recent past jurisprudence: the series now also serves to prepare researchers for future international case law. The 2011 edition ofThe Global Community Yearbookboth updates readers on the important work of long-standing international tribunals and introduces readers to more novel topics in international law. The Yearbook has already established itself as the authoritative resource for research and guidance on the jurisprudence of both U.N.-based tribunals and regional courts. The 2011 edition continues that sterling reputation through 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 that fill this edition, researchers will 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, this edition 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.
