En esta página de SSRN se pueden descargar algunos de los trabajos presentados en la 5ta Conferencia Bienal de la European Society of International Law (Valencia 2012). El artículo más descargado hasta ahora es el de Louise Fawcett (Oxford University) sobre el concepto y la historia del regionalismo. A mí me ha interesado mucho el artículo de Philipa Webb (KCL) sobre el desafío regionalista al derecho de las inmunidades jurisdiccionales y el de Liliana Obregón (Universidad de Los Andes) sobre la construcción del regionalismo y derecho internacional latinoamericano. Buena lectura.

El manuscrito de mi artículo Jus Cogens and Jurisdictional Immunities of States at the International Court of Justice: A Conflict Does Exist”, que será publicado en el próximamente en el Italian Yearbook of International Law (vol. 21, 2011), ya se puede consultar y descargar desde esta dirección en SSRN. A continuación transcribo el abstract.

In its judgment of 3 February 2012 in Jurisdictional Immunities of the State (Germany v Italy: Greece intervening), the International Court of Justice has considered the relationship between jus cogens and the rule of State immunity. The Court has denied the existence of a jus cogens exception to the rule of State jurisdictional immunities based primarily on the distinction between peremptory norms as rules of substance and jurisdictional immunities as rules of procedure. For the Court, a conflict between rules on jurisdictional immunities, “essentially procedural in nature,” and substantive rules of jus cogens is conceptually impossible. This comment presents a critique of the approach and reasoning of the Court regarding the absolute separation between procedural and substantive rules, and supports that a legal conflict may exist between jus cogens and jurisdictional immunities. Moreover, it sustains that the decision of the Court is neither an ideal kind of stability for international law nor an encouraging legal message to national judges dealing with public interest claims arising from serious violations of international law.

Gracias por los comentarios y las críticas.
