Overview

This book is the result of the Council of Europe Pilot Project on State Practice Regarding State Immunities carried out under the auspices of the Committee of Legal Advisers on Public International Law (CAHDI) since 2002. It presents and analyses the material submitted by 27 Member States and one Observer State of the Council of Europe, including decisions of national courts, relevant legislation and other documents.
The analytical report was undertaken by the Department of European, International and Comparative Law of the University of Vienna, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and the Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva. It compares State practice with the relevant articles of the UN Convention, the European Convention on State Immunity and the draft articles prepared by academic institutions. It is the first in depth-analysis of European State practice in the field of State immunity. Such a broad analysis is essential, in particular for the ascertainment of customary international law.
This book is addressed to officials, practitioners engaged in business relations with foreign States, and academics.

Ce livre est le résultat du Projet Pilote du Conseil de l’Europe sur la Pratique des Etats concernant les immunités des Etats réalisé sous les auspices du Comité des Conseillers Juridiques sur le Droit International Public (CAHDI) depuis 2002. Il présente et analyse la documentation fournie par 28 Etats membres et un Etat observateur du Conseil de l’Europe, y compris des décisions des juridictions nationales, la législation pertinente et d’autres documents.
Le rapport analytique a été élaboré par le Département de droit européen, international et comparé de l’Université de Vienne, l’Institut britannique de Droit International et Comparé et l’Institut des Hautes Etudes Internationales, Genève. Il compare la pratique des Etats avec les articles pertinents de la Convention des Nations Unies, de la Convention européenne sur l’immunité des Etats et les projets d’articles préparés par les institutions académiques. C’est la première analyse approfondie de la pratique des Etats européens en matière d’immunité des Etats. Une analyse aussi large est indispensable notamment en vue de l’identification du droit international coutumier.
Ce livre s’adresse aux fonctionnaires, aux praticiens entretenant des relations d’affaires avec des Etats étrangers, et aux universitaires.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The editors have done a remarkable job of synthesizing the raw data from so many judicial and legislative resources –including the U.N. and European Conventions on State Immunity-then packaging it all into a relatively concise but authoritative text …..[T]his will no doubt be one of the premiere resources, should States move in the direction of approaching State immunity more of a multilateral basis”
