Given the magnitude of the risks associated with commercial activities in the Arctic arising as a result of the milder climate, new business opportunities raise important questions of responsibility and liability. This book analyses the issues of responsibility and liability connected with the exploitation of natural resources, marine transport and other activities in the Arctic. Applying a combined private and public law perspective on these issues, it considers both the business and societal interests related to Arctic development using Greenland as an example. The book focuses on problems that are specific to Greenland and wider issues that affect all Arctic states.

This book analyses the way in which international human rights law (IHRL) and international investment law (IIL) are deployed – or fail to be deployed – in conflict countries within the context of natural resources extraction. It specifically analyses the way in which IIL protections impact on the parallel protection of economic, social and cultural rights (ESC rights) in the host state, especially the right to water. Arguing that current responses have been unsatisfactory, it considers the emergence of the 'Protect, Respect and Remedy' framework and the Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights (jointly the Framework) as a possible analytical instrument. In so doing, it proposes a different approach to the way in which the Framework is generally interpreted, and then investigates the possible applicability of this 'recalibrated' Framework to the study of the IHRL-IIL interplay in a host country in a protracted armed conflict: Afghanistan. Through the emblematic example of Afghanistan, the book presents a practical dimension to its legal analysis. It uniquely portrays the elusive intersection between these two bodies of international law within a host country where the armed conflict continues to rage and a full economic restructuring is taking place away from the public eye, not least through the deployment of IIL and the inaction – or merely partial consideration – of IHRL. The book will be of interest to academics, policy-makers, and practitioners of international organisations involved in IHRL, IIL and/or deployed in contexts of armed conflict.

Der Band schlägt ein Konzept des transnationalen Konzerns für das Völkerstrafrecht vor. Die Analyse von Völkerrecht, EU-Kartellrecht, US- und englischem Recht sowie ökonomischer Theorien zeigt den Konzern als ökonomische Einheit, wenn Kontrollmacht und tatsächliche Kontrollausübung vorliegen. Das Buch ergänzt die strafrechtliche Debatte um einen bis jetzt vernachlässigten gesellschaftsrechtlichen Blickwinkel und schafft mehr Klarheit hinsichtlich der Konturen und notwendigen Elemente des transnationalen Konzerns. Die Kriterien entspringen einer gründlichen Analyse transnationaler, übergreifender Strukturmerkmale des Konzerns in den untersuchten Rechtsordnungen. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt dabei auf der tatsächlichen Kontrollausübung und ihren verschiedenen Formen. Als Ergebnis der Synthese steht ein detailliertes und ökonomisch abgesichertes Konzept des transnationalen Konzerns, der als potenzieller Adressat völkerstrafrechtlicher Normen in Betracht kommt.
