The authors of this volume have been inspired by the scholar to which this qLiber Amicorumq is dedicated - Professor Ove Bring - to look into both the past and the future of international law. Like Ove Bring, they have dealt with many aspects of the law governing the use of force, from arms control to human rights, international criminal law, the UN Charter, and, of course, international humanitarian law. Like Professor Bring, they have allowed themselves to draw trajectories from history and into the future, and have shunned away from neither the controversial nor the speculative, be it on the Middle East, the invasion of Iraq or the independence of Kosovo. This collection brings together insights from a former UN Legal Counsel, a former Executive Chairman of UNMOVIC, present and former judges of the European Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, one present and one former member of the International Law Commission, as well as law professors and practitioners, from all Nordic countries, Germany and Australia. Together they form a highly challenging mosaic of perspectives on topical issues like cluster munitions, targeting, human rights in peace operations and the purposes of sentencing in international tribunals. The volume also contains a bibliography and a presentation of Professor Bring's work.... to the Conversion of Merchant Ships into War-Ships of 18 October 1907, printed in Roberts and Guelff, supra note 34, pp. 97 et seq. 47 Convention (VIII) Relative to the Laying of Automatic Submarine Contact Mines of 18 October 1907 , printed in Roberts and Guelff, supra note 34, pp. ... 51 International Institute of International Humanitarian Law, San Remo Manual on International Law applicable toanbsp;...
