This collection of essays is based upon the presentations given at a symposium on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Professor Rüdiger Wolfrum in December 2006. The contributions cover a wide range of contemporary issues of international law such as state responsibility, crisis management, unity of law, deep sea genetic resources, liability for environmental damage in Antarctica, human rights and intellectual property, and the protection of minorities. They all strive to contribute to the current state of academic discussion on different aspects of international law and offer valuable approaches to the solution of the relevant problems.
