Determining the earliest point in time at which international law authorises a state to exercise its inherent right of self-defence is an issue which has been debated, but unsatisfactorily reasoned, by scholars and states since the 1960’s. Yet it remains arguably the most pressing question of law that faces the international community. This book unravels the legal and factual complications which have obscured the answer to this question. In contrast to most other works, it takes an historic approach by tracing the evolution of the rights, rules and principles of international law which have governed the use of force by states since the 16th century. Its emphasis on self-defence provides the reader with a new and complete understanding of how and why the international legal framework limits defensive force to repelling an imminent threat or use of offensive force which is directed at the territory of a state. Taking an historic approach enables this book to resurrect an understanding of the human defensive instinct which has guided the formation of the international law of self-defence. It also explains the true legal nature and scope of the inherent right of self-defence, of anticipatory self-defence and provides a definition of the legal commencement of an armed attack for the purpose of Article 51 of the Charter. Finally, the reader will receive a unique source of research materials and analysis of state practice and of scholarly works concerning self-defence and the use of force since the 16th century, which is suitable for all readers of international law around the world.

Diese Studie zur gezielten Tötung greift ein kontrovers diskutiertes Thema auf: Der Einsatz von Kampfdrohnen mit dem Ziel der Tötung von Individuen fernab eines Kriegsschauplatzes hat sich zu einer Staatenpraxis entwickelt, der von Seiten der politisch führenden europäischen Nationen kein Widerstand entgegengesetzt wird. Berichte und Diskussionen innerhalb der Organisationen der Vereinten Nationen lassen dagegen erkennen, dass diese Form geheimdienstlich gesteuerter Operationen sowohl das humanitäre Völkerrecht der Genfer Konventionen als auch die maßgeblichen Menschenrechtskonventionen verletzt. Innerhalb des Völkerrechts gibt es bis heute weder eine Legaldefinition des Begriffs gezielter Tötung noch eine einheitliche Rechtsprechung auf der Grundlage des humanitären Völkerrechts. Auch im Rahmen des Rechtsregimes der Menschenrechte sind bisher keine verbindlichen Urteile zur Legalität/Illegalität gezielter Tötungen im Grenzbereich von Kriegsführung, Strafverfolgung und präventiver Gefahrenabwehr ergangen. Die vorliegende Untersuchung diskutiert die Herausforderungen an das Völkerrecht und die UN vor dem Hintergrund der asymmetrischen Kriege und des transnationalen Terrorismus.

The focus of this book is on the epistemological and hermeneutic implications of data science and artificial intelligence for democracy and the Rule of Law. How do the normative effects of automated decision systems or the interventions of robotic fellow ‘beings’ compare to the legal effect of written and unwritten law? To investigate these questions the book brings together two disciplinary perspectives rarely combined within the framework of one volume. One starts from the perspective of ‘code and law’ and the other develops from the domain of ‘law and literature’. Integrating original analyses of relevant novels or films, the authors discuss how computational technologies challenge traditional forms of legal thought and affect the regulation of human behavior. Thus, pertinent questions are raised about the theoretical assumptions underlying both scientific and legal practice.
