International Air Law and ICAO
Specialized legal literature dealing with different aspects of international air law is rare. The developments often overtake the existing writings and there is a continuous need not only for updating, but also for future-oriented thinking. There is a practical need for a compact, yet exhaustive, and easily comprehensible reference book or textbook that deals with the most general aspects of international air law, that also deals with the constitutional issues and law-making functions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). This book fills the gap as it is a general treatise on the law of international civil aviation aimed at the needs of university students and educators, government authorities, airlines, practicing lawyers, journalists, international organizations, and the general public. This book is motivated by the author's 25 years of experience as international civil servant in the Secretariat of ICAO in Montreal, with his last eight years as Director of the Legal Bureau responsible for the legal work program of the organization. In equal measure, the inspiration for the content of this book came from the author's academic work as Director of the Institute of Air and Space Law of McGill University (1989-1998) and his role as professor of law at that Institute until 2006.
