The Law of State Immunity

Third Edition

Hazel Fox, QC and Philippa Webb

  • Demonstrates how the doctrine of state immunity has developed, assessing the theoretical and practical features of a plea of immunity by a foreign state
  • Contains both conceptual analysis and detailed examination of case law, the relevant international treaties, and domestic laws
  • Offers detailed comparative coverage of the UK and US domestic legislation
  • Considers the relationship between State immunity and human rights conventions
  • Investigates how state immunity is now entering into a new phase using immunity to allocate adjudicative and enforcement jurisdiction between the territorial state and the foreign state
