This book examines a crucial area of international law, namely the exemption enjoyed by States from legal proceedings before foreign national courts.

On the basis of judicial decisions, governmental statements, international legal instruments, the book traces the historical development of the relevant doctrine and practice, critically analyses the rationale for immunity and closely inspects such important issues as commercial transactions, contracts of employment, the enforcement of judgments and the interaction between State immunity and human rights.

It intends to provide information and guidance for practitioners, academics and students alike.
