Description

In Humanity's Law, renowned legal scholar Ruti Teitel presents an incisive, well-substantiated analysis of a recent sea-change in international human-rights law. Offering examples from Europe, North America, South America, and Africa, she argues that post-Cold War history has witnessed a key transformation: the normative emphasis of the international legal order has been shifting from state security to human security--the security of persons and peoples.

Ruti G. Teitel is Ernst C. Stiefel Professor of Comparative Law at New York Law School, Visiting Professor at Hebrew University School of Law, and Visiting Fellow, London School of Economics.



Texte du rabat

In Humanity's Law, renowned legal scholar Ruti Teitel offers a powerful account of one of the central transformations of the post-Cold War era: the profound normative shift in the international legal order from prioritizing state security to protecting human security. As she demonstrates, courts, tribunals, and other international bodies now rely on a humanity-based framework to assess the rights and wrongs of conflict; to determine whether and how to intervene; and to impose accountability and responsibility. Cumulatively, the norms represent a new law of humanity that spans the law of war, international human rights, and international criminal justice. Teitel explains how this framework is reshaping the discourse of international politics with a new approach to the management of violent conflict. Teitel maintains that this framework is most evidently at work in the jurisprudence of the tribunals-international, regional, and domestic-that are charged with deciding disputes that often span issues of internal and international conflict and security. The book demonstrates how the humanity law framework connects the mandates and rulings of diverse tribunals and institutions, addressing the fragmentation of global legal order. Comprehensive in approach, Humanity's Law considers legal and political developments related to violent conflict in Europe, North America, South America, and Africa. This interdisciplinary work is essential reading for anyone attempting to grasp the momentous changes occurring in global affairs as the management of conflict is increasingly driven by the claims and interests of persons and peoples, and state sovereignty itself is transformed.
