South Africa achieved notoriety for its apartheid policies and practices both in the country and in Namibia. Today Israel stands accused of applying apartheid in the Palestinian territories it has occupied since 1967. Confronting Apartheid examines the regimes of these three societies from the perspective of the author’s experiences as a human rights lawyer in South Africa and Namibia and as a UN human rights envoy in occupied Palestine.

Most personal histories of apartheid in Southern Africa tell the story of the armed struggle. This book is about opposition to apartheid within the law and through the law. The successes and failures of civil society and lawyers in this endeavour are described in the context of the discriminatory and oppressive regime of apartheid. The author’s own experiences in Namibia and South Africa serve to illustrate the injustices of the regime and the avenues left to lawyers to advance human rights within the law. The end of apartheid and the transition to democracy are also described through the experiences of the author.

The book concludes with an account of Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem, Gaza and the West Bank and the author’s work as human rights investigator and reporter for the United Nations. This involves the examination of issues such as the construction of Jewish settlements, the demolition of Palestinian homes, the restrictions on freedom of movement and the attacks on the life and liberty of Palestinians which the author argues constitute an oppressive regime falling within the definition of apartheid under international law. A separate chapter is devoted to the situation in Gaza which was closely monitored by the author for nearly a decade. Namibia, South Africa and Palestine are dealt with separately with introductions designed to ensure that the reader is provided with the necessary historical, political and legal background material.

This fifth edition of International Law: A South African Perspective is now titled Dugard’s International Law: A South African Perspective, in recognition of the fact that this work is a continuation of the earlier editions written by John Dugard.

The substance of the work has undergone major changes to take account of new developments both on the international legal scene and in South Africa. Dugard’s International Law: A South African Perspective presents a South African perspective of international law. The basic principles of international law are described and examined with reference to the principal sources of international law. This examination, however, takes place within the context of South African law.

South African state practice, judicial decisions and legislation on international law receive equal treatment with international law as it is practised and taught abroad.

The defining moments of 2001, the terrorist attacks of September 11 against the UnitedStatesofAmerica, markedaturningpointininternational lawandrelations. Bytheirscaleandaudaciousness, overnighttheyhelpedtopropeltheissueofint- national terrorism to the top of the international security agenda and particularly that of the USA, with consequences for many branches of international law, including the jus ad bellum, the jus in bello, international law relating to terrorism, international human rights law and international criminal law, that were just beginning to be felt as the year closed. The September 11 attacks were immediately characterised by the United States 3 as an act of war, an armed attack on such ascale asto constitute an armed conflict. Its immediate response was to declare a so-called 'Global War on Terrorism'. Avowedly acting in self-defense, on 7 October the US launched armed attacks against Afghanistan, notbecause Afghanistan wasconsidered tobelegally resp- sible for the September 11 attacks but for harbouring and refusing to surrender members of Al Qaeda, including its leader, Osama Bin Laden, and refusing to dismantle terrorist training camps. Although the main target of the attacks was Al Qaeda, the armed conflict that ensued was an international armed conflict between the US and its allies and the state of Afghanistan, notwithstanding that the US never recognised the Taleban as the government of Afghanistan.

This major work written by prominent South African academics is an introduction to the new constitutional order in South Africa. It places fundamental rights as affirmed in Chapter 3 of the South African Constitution in a comparative and international context. The authors draw heavily on the constitutional experience of countries such as Canada, India, Germany, and the United States, which greatly influenced the drafting of Chapter 3 of the Constitution. The study is shaped by principles that form the foundation of the new order: the supremacy of the Constitution, the notion of a democratic constitutional state, and the judicial protection of fundamental rights. The book is divided into four parts. The first deals with constitutionalism, democracy, and constitutional interpretation. The second part provides an examination of the historical background of the 1993 Constitution and a description of the principal features of the Constitution. The third part contains an analysis of the key fundamental rights which constitutes the main purpose of the study. Detailed treatment is given to civil and political rights, social and economic rights, the concepts of equality and administrative justice, and the circumstances in which limitations may be imposed on rights. A separate chapter is devoted to the international protection of human rights as directed by Section 35(1) of the Constitution. The final part comprises a bibliography of the works cited in the text following the sequence of the chapters. This is a book which will be of interest to all constitutional law specialists and to many political scientists, particularly those with an interest in constitutionalism and constitutional litigation.

How can the international community respond to states that fail to respect fundamental rules of international law? Does state sovereignty form an obstacle to the development of international legal principles, rules, and in particular, decision-making procedures as a basis for international governance? The contributors to this volume investigate these various aspects of state sovereignty and international governance. Their findings suggest that although sovereign states will remain the most important actors, global governance will lead to restrictions on the exercise of sovereignty.
