Example text

Should we not resist giving a legal imprimatur to any (non-consensual) foreign project of transformative occupation and leave the burden of proof on the occupier? I take these dilemmas seriously. Nevertheless, this chapter will argue, first, that the conservation principle if not the letter of the law of belligerent occupation remains relevant today and that it is well worth the effort to articulate its normative thrust in light of contemporary conditions. In particular, the principle of the “inalienability of sovereignty by force” remains compelling, although the understanding of who the ultimate bearer of national sovereignty is, and of what prerogatives sovereignty entails have undergone important shifts.

None of this, as we shall see, denies the independent importance of moral justification of human rights. The fourth chapter follows logically from the third. This chapter addresses the paradoxes involved in the transformative occupations that follow upon humanitarian intervention and the dilemmas posed by legalization proposals. The need to replace the “sovereign,” or rather, ruler who has been involved in grave rights violations and to change domestic laws that contribute to such violations is undeniable in such contexts.

60 But this also means that equal sovereignty of a plurality of states is impossible. The sovereign state cannot, from its internal perspective, acknowledge the simultaneous autonomous validity of any other legal order. 61 Under the monist thesis of the primacy of national law, however, the solipsistic sovereign state can recognize only its own sovereignty, which it assumes to be independent of the recognition by international law or by any other state. 64 Kelsen insists that these questions cannot be analyzed deductively from the concept of sovereignty, even absolute sovereignty in the above sense, but only from an analysis of positive law to which a sovereign state can of course consent with no such restrictions.
