    OUVRAGE : J. Nyawo, Selective Enforcement and International Criminal Law: The International Criminal Court and Africa

    James NYAWO

    The dynamics of enforcing international criminal justice through the International Criminal Court (ICC) has become a challenging exercise in Africa. At times the uneasy relationship between the ICC, the African Union and a few influential African states has given rise to concerns about the future of international criminal justice in general, and in Africa in particular. Still, the enthusiasts for international criminal justice as enforced by the ICC, interpret the challenges that the ICC is encountering in Africa as part of the growing pains of a new institution in the international system.

    REVUE : Revista do Instituto Brasileiro de Direitos Humanos (vol. 16, 2016)

    Antônio Augusto CANÇADO TRINDADE, César BARROS LEAL

    O Instituto Brasileiro de Direitos Humanos (IBDH) tem a satisfação de dar a público o décimosexto
    número de sua Revista, instrumento pelo qual contribui com periodicidade anual e distribuição gratuita (graças ao respaldo do Banco do Nordeste) ao desenvolvimento do ensino e da pesquisa na área dos direitos humanos, visando a promovê-los, de forma ampla, mas principalmente na realidade brasileira. No entendimento do IBDH, o ensino e a pesquisa em direitos humanos giram em torno de alguns conceitos básicos, devendo-se afirmar, de início, a própria universalidade dos direitos humanos, inerentes que são a todos os seres humanos, e consequentemente superiores e anteriores ao Estado e a todas as formas de organização política. Por conseguinte, as iniciativas para sua promoção e proteção não se esgotam – não se podem esgotar – na ação do Estado.

    OUVRAGE : J. d'Aspremont, S. Besson (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of the Sources of International Law

    Jean d'ASPREMONT, Samantha BESSON

    The question of the sources of international law inevitably raises some well-known scholarly controversies: where do the rules of international law come from? And more precisely: through which processes are they made, how are they ascertained, and where does the international legal order begin and end? The Oxford Handbook of the Sources of International Law is the very first comprehensive work of its kind devoted to the question of the sources of international law. It provides an accessible and systematic overview of the key issues and debates around the sources of international law. It also offers an authoritative theoretical guide for anyone studying or working within but also outside international law wishing to understand one of its most foundational questions. This handbook features original essays by leading international law scholars and theorists from a range of traditions, nationalities and perspectives, reflecting the richness and diversity of scholarship in this area.
