Information about this book in DIALNET.

GIBRALTAR, 300 YEARS is a collective work whose title expresses the memory of the 300 years since a tragic event. It had all kinds of consequences, including the controversy which Spanish and British generations have experienced. A work that conceives from the present and looks hopefully to the future of the multifaceted reality of Gibraltar, symbol and inexhaustible source of problems and cooperation, is reminiscent of feelings and its prospects of solution are always open and people keep rethinking its problem (negotiations about co-sovereignty in 2001-2002), new tripartite forum for dialogue since 2004).

The book is mostly the result of the courses organized by the University of Cadiz and the City of San Roque in the editions of 2002 (Gibraltar: towards the end of the controversy?), 2003 (neighborly relations between Gibraltar and the Campo de Gibraltar) and 2004 (Gibraltar 300 years, present and future). The book offers different analyzes and views of the best specialists and experts in the subject of Gibraltar, as well as the main actors and representatives of Gibraltar and the Campo de Gibraltar.

The work, which includes the many prospects for solving the problem, covers many issues connected with the controversy, sovereignty, the status of Gibraltar, neighborly relations and Cross-Border Cooperation. It also contains plans about the institutional, social and cultural relations between Gibraltar and the Campo de Gibraltar. A final section summarizes the main texts, documents and maps of Gibraltar.

The book’s cover symbolizes intertwined coexistence of people during 300 years and contains the emblem of Gibraltar, which is also the emblem of San Roque.

Inmigración irregular y Derecho

VIII Jornadas Autonómicas de Derecho Internacional Humanitario

Authors: Alejandro del Valle Gálvez y Miguel Acosta Sánchez (Eds.).

Publishing House: Servicio de Publicaciones de la Universidad de Cádiz.

Year of publication: 2005

Information about this book in DIALNET.

Illegal immigration is one of the biggest challenges that Andalusia has faced in recent years. In effect, it highlights the urgent need to establish and develop social instruments, humanitarian and essential materials to address the diverse issues involved in this human avalanche, deeply motivated by inequality fractures traversing the planet. Similarly, the phenomenon of illegal immigration makes clear the urgent need for better regulation of these issues in international, European and Spanish area. Undoubtedly, the issue of illegal immigration is one of the most important topics that citizens worry about. This problem is intensified in the province of Cadiz, traditional gateway to the West of the people who look for a “future”, or simply survive.

For many years, Spanish Red Cross has provided their generous assistance to give minimal humane treatment for all immigrants who came to the Andalusian coast, regardless of compliance with the requirements of regularity in their entry. The Red Cross initiative to organize a conference about irregular immigration law was immediately welcomed by the University of Cadiz, sensitive institution to the human drama that the province experiences every day. The VIII CONFERENCE ABOUT INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW, which aim was to solve the problem of IRREGULAR IMMIGRATION AND LAW, was held on 19 and 20 February of 2004 in Cadiz. The organization of these conferences was provided by Red Cross-Cadiz, University of Cadiz, specifically the Directorate of Logistics and Solidarity and the Department of Public International Law, Faculty of Law.

This book contains the lectures and communications that were presented at the conference. This conference and the subsequent work that the reader has in their hands have been divided into four main sections, which deal with what we understand as the main topics of interest from a legal standpoint and humanitarian law: the entrance, the border service, permanence and legal status of illegal immigrants. There should be welcomed collaboration conducted between the University of Cadiz and Spanish Red Cross. And in particular, we should recognize the great activity of the General Directorate for Solidarity of the UCA, as well as Red Cross-Cadiz. Without the enthusiasm and total dedication to these issues of their staff and colleagues it wouldn’t have been possible to present this book.

Naciones Unidas y la coordinación para el desarrollo

Author: Inmaculada González García

Publishing House: Dykinson

Year of publication: 2005

Informatión sobre este libro en DIALNET

NACIONES UNIDAS Y LA COORDINACIÓN PARA EL DESARROLLO covers one of the most problematic issues of the International Society of our time: how to articulate coherent institutional and economic means to combat underdevelopment, which is the deepest fracture that divides the people of the planet. The United Nations now is the only global forum which carries out a cooperation for development. To a large extent, this performance will depend on the legitimacy of the United Nations system, a system designed for too long.

The book examines the status and evolution of the various institutional, legal and political coordination within the United Nations (ECOSOC, programs, agencies, operational activities, world conferences …) on development cooperation, thematic common transverse to the UN and the specialized agencies of the system (FAO, UNIDO …).

The real, practical importance of this problem is underscored by the author, who reveals the political, institutional and legal ineffectiveness of a coordination model with poor structure. The book is a critical contribution to theoretical and practical knowledge of the operation and failures of the United Nations system, in its action on Cooperation for development.

Information about thiw book in DIALNET

A hundred years ago the European authorities were called to Algeciras to decide the future of the Sultanate of Morocco, last territory that was outside European expansion in the African continent. Morocco became the center of the U.S. imperial purposes, with Spain deeply shaken by the crisis of ninety-eight. Besides, Africa didn’t have common policy and suffered a sharp declining phase in its external position. The centenary of this event is presented as an appropriate occasion to promote the study, reflection and discussion of the complex relations between Spain and Morocco, which were very significantly marked and burdened by the results of the Diplomatic Conference. The collective work is fruit of the reports presented during 2005 and 2006 in the International Courses of the University of Cadiz and Algeciras, with support of the Aula Universitaria del Estrecho. The work offers a balance between the purely academic approaches and derivatives of international experience and political practice with participation of diplomats, professors and university researchers. In times of great uncertainty of the beginning of the XXI century in relations between nations and states of different cultures, traditions and religions, this work is a contribution to a better understanding of the relations between Spain and Morocco, extraordinarily complex and dependent on its geographical location for both sides of the Straits of Gibraltar. But in the end, these states have common values that derive from its long shared history.

La Política Europea de Seguridad y Defensa y la Gestión de Crisis Internacionales. Las operaciones Petersberg

Author: Miguel Acosta Sánchez.

Publishing House: Dykinson.

Year of publication: 2008.

Information about this book in DIALNET.

The dramatic changes in the conception of security in the post-9/11 period and downsizing of military International Organizations such as the WEU and NATO in the current international situation, also affect the European Union, where security and Defense constitute a certain reality in the attempt to articulate a Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). Among the important developments of this Policy, the military activity of Europe in crisis management operations worldwide, by means of Petersberg Tasks, assumed by the Treaty on European Union in1997, to carry out humanitarian and rescue missions, crisis management, prevent conflicts and keep peace.

This book examines the actual autonomous capacity of Europe to manage and prevent international crisis with military and civilian units that constitute effective European multinational peacekeeping forces. In particular we analyze the birth and development of Petersberg Tasks, its institutional, regulatory, financial and material resources, gauging their suitability to allow the EU to work consistently in emergencies. It gives the specific study of the successive military operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina together with European practice of civilian crisis management by police missions deployed in the republics of the former Yugoslavia. The author presents a series of assessments and proposals for improvement in order to provide overall operability of the EU’s external action in the area of peacekeeping and security, potential future developments pointing towards greater presence of the EU on the international scene.

Petersberg Tasks are excellent example of the progressive European capacity for intervention in international conflicts, and therefore the actual efficiency of the European Security Policy and Defense. In effect, activity of the multinational forces under blue flag is the proof of the consolidation of the CFSP and the European Union that plays an essential part in peacekeeping which is an important aspect of democratic values in Europe and the rule of law in International Society.


Gibraltar. Controversia y Medio Ambiente

Author: Jesús Verdú Baeza.

Publishing House: Dykinson.

Year of publication: 2008.

Information about this book in DIALNET.

The Bay of Algeciras and its surroundings have an extraordinary environmental value but it is a constant subject to environmental impacts. The continual presence of oil spills in its waters causes deterioration of the environment that can have a greater impact on marine ecosystems. Spills do not come, in most cases, of oil tanker accidents, but actions such as washing tanks, bilge water spill and fuel supply operations. This work aims to analyze the reasons of the existence of such spills, a circumstance which is added to other environmental degradation factors such as the existence of risks (constant existence of nuclear submarines based in Gibraltar).

The conquest of Gibraltar by the British and the Dutch squadron on August 4, 1704 and the legal transfer of the territory by the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 caused a profound transformation of the natural environment of the bay and became a reason of a process of degradation of the environment and living conditions of the area which lasts until today but still it didn’t have a specific character under bilateral negotiations between Spain and Britain. In this sense, two or three administrations, if we consider the administration of Gibraltar had in common the lack of a clear and strong focus on implementation and enforcement in the prevention of environmental damage which should be the main problem in cross-border relations as it has become one of the guiding principles of neighborhood relations in contemporary international law.

The book reveals that the Gibraltar dispute in addition to many political, legal and diplomatic problems raises a number of environmental conflicts affecting relations between two territories which aggravates the disputes. The truth is that the environmental problems cause a deep degradation and an undeniable impact on the quality of life of people in the area.

The study of different aspects of EU external action is always important because of the essential role it plays in the international scene.

Throughout history, the Mediterranean region has become a crossroads, which combine different networks of relations, involving several actors from all sides of the Mediterranean: from the Euro-Mediterranean partnership to bilateral relations between the countries of the region. Thus, this region has become an important center of cooperation, but also a source of many risks.

This collective work, written in French (except the epilogue), examines the interventions of the Second Conference of Euro-Moroccan dialogue, held in Tangier in November 2008, under the Interuniversity Cooperation Project (ICP) ‘Politics of risk evaluation in the area of the Strait of Gibraltar – border, environmental and economic risks”(A/012559/07), between the Universities of Cadiz and Abdelmalek Essaâdi Tangier-Tetouan.

As proof of the existence of significant trans-university cooperative ties, this book has teachers and university researchers in International Law and International Relations, from both sides of Straits of Gibraltar, who have the ambition to share their analyzes, and reflections, about of the various risks affecting the protagonists of relations in the Mediterranean region.

Analyzed, thus, three kinds of risks. First, the international security risks linked to cross-border organized crime and international terrorism, and the responses offered by the EU, NATO and through bilateral cooperation between Mediterranean countries. Second, we analyze the risks associated with illegal immigration, emphasizing the need for better development cooperation as a way to solve migration “problems”. Third, we analyze the environmental risks as well as those arising from regulatory gaps in the Law of the Sea from the Mediterranean coastal States.

This shared analysis is not limited to the risks, but proposed solutions and alternative ways to manage it, insisting that it is necessary the development of those countries that are disadvantaged, and supporting the cooperation as a way to overcome all differences.

Especially, the Gibraltar Strait area is essential for Spain’s relations with Morocco, and place very special paradigm of EU relations with Morocco.
