Vol. 2017/I.


The editors are pleased to present issue 2017/I of the Pécs Journal of International and European Law, published by the Centre for European Research and Education of the Faculty of Law of the University of Pécs.

In the Articles section, Davor Muhvić looks into the issue of the legal personality of non-state entities in international law, focusing mostly on transnational corporations while providing a critical analysis of the most prevalent theoretical approaches to the issue. Catherine Odorige reflects on the interpretation of the 1951 Geneva Convention in light of the recent asylum and migration challenges. Ágoston Mohay and Norbert Tóth provide an analysis of Case C-438/14 Nabiel Peter Bogendorff von Wolffersdorff which concerns the national regulation of the use of nobility titles in light of EU law obligations. Gyöngyvér-Kovács Zsankó gives an overview of the situation of the Rohingyas and gives some suggestions as to the way forward, whereas Waddah Alrawashdeh provides an insight into the role of the judiciary in the enforcement of arbitral awards in Jordan. As for the current issue’s article focusing on the Western Balkans, István Lakatos gives an account of the potential of small states in United Nations diplomacy, with a case study of Montenegro.

We encourage the reader, also on behalf of the editorial board, to consider the PJIEL as a venue for publications. With your contributions, PJIEL aims to remain a trustworthy and up-to-date journal of international and European law issues. The next formal deadline for submission of articles is 15 October 2017, though submissions are welcomed at any time.
