This book focuses on the balance between protecting human rights and protecting world heritage sites. It concerns itself with the idea that the management of heritage properties worldwide may fail to adequately respect traditional entitlements and rights of individuals and communities living within or being affected by changes in the use of these spaces. It also explores the concept that the international heritage field has limited knowledge and awareness of this challenge. The volume argues that the dilemmas in question result from different conceptualisations of the key terms of 'rights', 'heritage' and 'community' among different groups and across political and cultural boundaries. In so far as 'culture' is what enables us to read the meanings involved, the ultimate questions are those that ask whose power is contested when one meaning is ‘fixed’ and the heritage of one group of humans is given the right to have its symbolic representation enjoyed and protected. The included case studies give vivid examples of this. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Heritage Studies.

Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in Armed Conflict

This book addresses the international legal obligation to protect economic, social, and cultural human rights in times of armed conflict and other situations of armed violence. These rights provide guarantees to individuals of their fundamental rights to work, to an adequate standard of living (food, water, housing), to education, and to health. Armed violence can take many forms, from civil unrest or protest and other forms of internal disturbances and tensions to higher levels of violence that may amount to armed conflict, whether of an international or of a non-international character. However, in all such cases the protection of ESC rights is sorely challenged. Situations of actual or potential violence present a number of challenges to the application and implementation of human rights law in general and socio-economic rights obligations more specifically. This book sets out the legal framework, defining what constitutes a minimum universal standard of human rights protection applicable in all circumstances. It assesses the concept and content of ESC rights' obligations, and evaluates how far they can be legally applicable in various scenarios of armed violence. By looking at the specific human rights treaty provisions, it discusses how far ESC rights obligations can be affected by practical and legal challenges to their implementation. The book addresses the key issues facing the protection of such rights in times of armed conflict: the legal conditions to limit ESC rights on security grounds, including the use of force; the extraterritorial applicability of international human rights treaties setting out ESC rights; the relationship between human rights law and international humanitarian law; and the obligations of non-state actors under human rights law and with particular relevance to the protection of ESC rights. The book assesses the nature of these potential challenges to the protection of ESC rights, and offers solutions to reinforce their continued application.

This book explores the promises and limitations of holding individuals accountable for violations of international human rights and humanitarian law. It analyses the principal crimes under international law, such as genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, and appraises both prosecutorial and other key mechanisms developed to bring individuals to justice. After applying their conclusions in a detailed case study, the authors offer a series of compelling conclusions on the prospects for accountability. This fully updated new edition contains expanded coverage of national trials under universal jurisdiction, international criminal tribunals including the International Criminal Court, new hybrid tribunals in Cambodia and elsewhere, truth commissions, and lustration. It also explores individual accountability for terrorist acts and for abuses committed in the name of counter-terrorism policy.

This book fills gaps in the exploration of the protection of cultural heritage in armed conflict based on the World Heritage Convention. Marina Lostal offers a new perspective, designating a specific protection regime to world cultural heritage sites, which is so far lacking despite the fact that such sites are increasingly targeted. Lostal spells out this area's discrete legal principles, providing accessible and succinct guidelines to a usually complex web of international conventions. Using the conflicts in Syria, Libya and Mali (among others) as case studies, she offers timely insight into the phenomenon of cultural heritage destruction. Lastly, by incorporating the World Heritage Convention into the discourse, this book fulfills UNESCO's long-standing project of exploring 'how to promote the systemic integration between the [World Heritage] Convention of 1972 and the other UNESCO regimes'. It is sure to engender debate and cause reflection over cultural heritage and protection regimes.

Grundthese des Buches ist, dass ein Paradigmenwechsel stattgefunden hat, der den Menschen zum primaren Volkerrechtssubjekt macht. Diese These wird vor dem Hintergrund der Ideengeschichte und Dogmatik der Volkerrechtspersonlichkeit des Menschen entfaltet und auf die Rechtspraxis in zahlreichen Teilrechtsgebieten, angefangen vom Recht der internationalen Verantwortung uber das Recht des bewaffneten Konflikts, das Recht der Katastrophenhilfe, das internationale Strafrecht, das internationale Umweltrecht, das Konsularrecht und das Recht des diplomatischen Schutzes, das internationale Arbeitsrecht, das Fluchtlingsrecht bis hin zum internationalen Investitionsschutzrecht gestutzt. Der neue Volkerrechtsstatus des Menschen wird mit dem Begriff des subjektiven internationalen Rechts auf den Punkt gebracht.

English summary: Legal culture has become a key notion in law and society. But how to describe it? How does it emerge? Where are its roots and foundations? Which elements constitute it? Peter Mankowski provides answers by highlighting its development and structures. Rather than establishing a grand theory, his work looks at different contexts and offers at its core a comparative-anecdotal approach to a complex, multifaceted notion. Aiming to provoke thought and encourage discussion, the author depicts the societal, religious and ideological traditions surrounding legal culture, which has to be dynamic to keep apace with progress in society, science and technology. An international phenomenon, legal culture looks at individuals and their relationships to society and community. Its often media influenced public perception and own image within the legal profession are further constituent parts. In short, legal culture is colourful and mirrors the vitality of law and life. German description: Rechtskultur ist ein zentraler Begriff in Recht und Gesellschaft. Was aber ist Rechtskultur? Wie entsteht Rechtskultur? Welche Facetten hat Rechtskultur? "Rechtskultur" ist ein Versuch, Antworten, Konturen und Strukturen zu entwickeln. Peter Mankowski will dabei keine Grosstheorie aufstellen, sondern Zusammenhange aufzeigen. Er bietet im Kern eine rechtsvergleichend-anekdotische Annaherung an einen schwierigen und vielschichtigen Begriff. Dabei will er Anstosse geben und anregen. Rechtskultur steht in gesellschaftlichen, religiosen und ideologischen Traditionen. Rechtskultur ist dynamisch. Sie muss versuchen, mit gesellschaftlichen, wissenschaftlichen und technischen Entwicklungen Schritt zu halten. Rechtskultur speist sich aus der Wahrnehmung der Laien, vermittelt durch Bilder in Medien, ebenso wie aus dem Selbstverstandnis der Juristen. Rechtskultur bezieht sich auf den Einzelnen ebenso wie auf dessen Verhaltnis zu Gemeinschaften. Rechtskultur zeigt sich in internationalen Kontexten. Rechtskultur ist so bunt und vielgestaltig wie das Recht und das Leben selber.
