Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Sets out a case that international law does not necessarily demand that foreign states be granted immunity from prosecution for violating human rights, as was once universally agreed. Reviews the current state of international immunity law as evidenced by state practice and the work of several international learned bodies. Demonstrates that granting immunity may contradict the procedural guarantees of the European Convention of Human Rights, and considers the impact of human rights laws on the traditional concept of diplomatic protection. Concludes that a further restriction of state immunity is needed. Presented as a doctoral dissertation at the University of Saarland, Germany, in 1995 and revised to incorporate events up to March 1996. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
