Aggression Against Ukraine : Territory, Responsibility and International Law, Hardback Book

Aggression Against Ukraine : Territory, Responsibility and International Law Hardback



The prohibition against acquisition of territory by use or the threat of force constitutes one of key cornerstones of the modern legal order.

The forcible annexation of territory of the Ukraine by the Russian Federation, presents a fundamental challenge.

This timely, topical work considers how States and international organizations have responded to this act of aggression.

It considers their responses against the system of international law which has evolved since World War Two in order to stabilize territorial settlements.

Under this framework boundaries can only change by clear consent, outside the shadow of force or threat.

Revisiting and re-evaluating other instances of interventions such as Iraq and Kosovo, this book explores if (as some international lawyers argue) precedents exist for the Russian Federation's action in Ukraine.

It concludes that these interventions were in fact fundamentally dissimilar and cannot to be equated to the present crisis.
