‘We are living in a time when traditional immunities protective of states, international organizations, and their officials are being severely challenged, not least by calls for greater accountability and enforcement of human rights protections. This volume assembles an extraordinary array of scholars and practitioners who comprehensively, cogently and thoughtfully analyse the existing law of the wide array of immunity regimes, drawing upon copious contemporary state practice and jurisprudence.'
Sean D. Murphy - George Washington University Law School, UN International Law Commission and President of the American Society of International Law
‘Whoever seeks clarification on any immunity question should consult this Handbook. It offers an excellent overview and detailed discussion of the international law aspects written by outstanding scholars and practitioners.'
August Reinisch - Member of the International Law Commission and Universität Wien
‘In sum, international immunities are difficult and complex. Scholars and practitioners may rely on The Cambridge Handbook of Immunities and International Law to dispel some of that complexity. It is a very good book that will make the lives of practitioners, scholars, civil servants, and judges easier. It should be on their bookshelves.’
