Reflections on International Law from the Low Countries: In Honour of Paul De Waart

Front Cover
Paul J. I. M. De Waart, Erik M. G. Denters, Nico Schrijver
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, Jan 1, 1998 - Law - 507 pages
This work brings together 28 essays specially written by international lawyers based in or associated with The Netherlands & Belgium to honour Professor Paul de Waart on his retirement from the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. The experience & insight derived from his careers as journalist, foreign affairs officer, diplomat, pragmatic administrator & law professor have made him a distinguished scholar. His work has resulted in a host of academic publications on contemporary international law issues. The topics are clustered around the main foci of the research interests of Paul de Waart, including: international economic law & development, human rights, international criminal jurisdiction, the United Nations & peace & security, the protection of cultural property & the environment, & international dispute settlement. The international law communities in the Low Countries are linked through many bonds such as language (Dutch & Flemish), legal history, common teachers, & frequent inter-university contacts. As such the book may be viewed as a reflection of international law studies as they are currently practised in these two countries.
