Excerpt

Kushtrim Istrefi’s European Judicial Responses to Security Council Resolutions – A Consequentialist Assessment is a welcome addition to the vast and still growing literature assessing the wide-ranging implications of the Security Council Resolutions (SRCs) on human rights. In the last two decades, legal scholarship on the issue has mostly focused on the ambit of the Security Council (SC)’s duty to abide by international human rights law and has therefore often been simplistic. Istrefi’s book, based on his doctoral thesis, takes the issue a step further by bringing together many threads of theory and practice. Notably, it offers a new taxonomy of the judicial responses of the European courts to the scrs and uses a consequentialist assessment to investigate and outline the multiple effects of such judicial engagement.
