important parts of the package were the creation of an Economic and Social Council and an International Court of Justice. With most of the issues ironed out, Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin decided to invite the other allied powers to San Francisco, where the final Charter would be approved. In the fall of 1944, Hull’s health took a turn for the worse and he was bedridden. Told by his doctors that he was unlikely to recover, on 30 November 1944, Hull resigned and Stettinius took his place.

Chapter 4 Failed states, failed empires and the new paternalism In 2014 the people of Crimea voted to secede from Ukraine and join with Russia. For a vote held in haste and in a territory that had already been occupied by Russian special forces in any case, the Crimean secessionists demonstrated remarkable care in seeking to ground their efforts in international law: they cited as precedent the ruling of the International Court of Justice when it found that the secession of Kosovo from Serbia in 2008 did not breach international law. The 2008 Russian

be considered a prerequisite to the Republic of Cyprus’s accession to the EU. It was adamant that, henceforth, all Greek–Turkish territorial disputes be referred to the International Court of Justice at The Hague. Finally, it demanded that Turkey meet the same accession conditions as the other eleven EU candidates. In this context, Greece pointed to the need for a serious discussion of the human rights situation in Turkey, noting that, in order to qualify for EU membership, it, Turkey, will have to modify over 20,000 Turkish laws and regulations in line with the EU

framing narrative in RIA-Novosti’s narrative text, the societal narrative of genocide is well known, and Kavkazcenter is not alone in applying it to Russian aggression in Chechnya.

has been inoperative since 1994); and the International Court of Justice. But the heart of the discussion on peacekeeping operations takes place in the Security Council, the General Assembly and Secretariat. This is not meant to suggest that ECOSOC and the International Court of Justice do not do important work, but rather that their work is not in the sphere under discussion here – i.e. the concept and execution of peacekeeping operations. The main organ in charge of the maintenance of international peace and security is the Security Council.24 The Security Council

The book explores the relationship between violence against women on one hand, and the rights to health and reproductive health on the other. It argues that violation of the right to health is a consequence of violence, and that (state) health policies might be a cause of – or create the conditions for – violence against women. It significantly contributes to feminist and international human rights legal scholarship by conceptualising a new ground-breaking idea, violence against women’s health (VAWH), using the Hippocratic paradigm as the backbone of the analysis. The two dimensions of violence at the core of the book – the horizontal, ‘interpersonal’ dimension and the vertical ‘state policies’ dimension – are investigated through around 70 decisions of domestic, regional and international judicial or quasi-judicial bodies (the anamnesis). The concept of VAWH, drawn from the anamnesis, enriches the traditional concept of violence against women with a human rights-based approach to autonomy and a reflection on the pervasiveness of patterns of discrimination (diagnosis). VAWH as theorised in the book allows the reconceptualisation of states’ obligations in an innovative way, by identifying for both dimensions obligations of result, due diligence obligations, and obligations to progressively take steps (treatment). The book eventually asks whether it is not international law itself that is the ultimate cause of VAWH (prognosis).
