Regulating Shale Gas

The Challenge of Coherent Environmental and Energy Regulation

Leonie Reins

Regulating Shale Gas discusses the regulatory context of shale gas in the European Union and draws conclusions on the EU’s broader approach towards the regulation of new technologies. Providing the first dedicated examination of the overall regulatory context of shale gas in the EU, Leonie Reins reveals how the EU’s new constitutional setup after the Lisbon Treaty has complicated rather than facilitated the EU’s quest for a common energy policy.

Commercial Uses of Space and Space Tourism combines the perspectives of academics, policy makers and major industry players around three central themes connected to commercial spacefaring: the international legal challenges posed by the dramatic changes to the spacefaring landscape through privatisation and commercialisation; the corresponding legal and regulatory responses to these challenges at the national level; and related topical questions of global space governance.

Access to Justice and International Organizations

The Case of Individual Victims of Human Rights Violations

Pierre Schmitt

Recent examples such as the cholera outbreak in Haiti demonstrate that individual victims of human rights violations by international organizations are frequently left in the cold. Following an examination of the human rights obligations of international organizations, this book scrutinizes their dispute settlement mechanisms as well as the conflict between their immunities and the right of access to justice before national jurisdictions. It concludes with normative proposals addressed both to international organizations and to national judges confronted with such cases.
