    Tomonori MIZUSHIMA

     More details

    Language:Japanese   Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    Foreign State immunity has been considered to be a rule of international law and discussion regarding it has centred on the scope of the immunity to be granted. International lawyers tend to describe the development of foreign State immunity as a change "from absolute to restrictive immunity". In this article, it is argued that, as a matter of international law, the scope of foreign State immunity has expanded, rather than being restricted.

  24. *Denying Foreign State Immunity on the Grounds of the Unavailability of Alternative Means Reviewed

    MIZUSHIMA Tomonori

    The Modern Law Review   Vol. 71 ( 5 ) page: 734-752   2008.9

     More details

    Language:English   Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    Granting immunity from suit to a foreign state or an international organisation, deprives the plaintiff of access to court and appears incompatible with the rule of law. Since the European Court of Human Rights judgment in Waite v Germany (1999), the availability of alternative means for dispute settlement has been emphasised in the context of international organisation immunity. However in the case of foreign state immunity, this approach was not taken by the European Court of Human Rights in Al-Adsani v United Kingdom (2001) nor by the House of Lords in Jones v Ministry of the Interior of Saudi Arabia (2006). Likewise, foreign state immunity would be granted under the UN State Immunity Convention of 2004, regardless of whether there are alternative means. This Convention, rather than enhancing the rule of law, could lead to its attenuation. That several cases involve immunity in cases of torture sharpens their sensitivity.
