Overview

Behind and Beyond the Chicago Convention is intended to analyse the concept of sovereignty in international civil aviation, how it evolved in the course of times, how it related to European integration process and to air traffic management. The meaning of sovereignty has been analysed philosophically and linked to current conceptions in an evolutionary process. The Convention on International Civil Aviation that concluded in Chicago on 7 December 1944, commonly referred to as the Chicago Convention, is one of the most ratified multilateral agreements currently in force, with 193 States Parties. In this deeply informative book, commemorating the 75th birthday of the Convention on International Civil Aviation, thirty-three of the most distinguished authors in aviation law offer perspectives on the quality of the Convention’s achievements.

What’s in this book:

Emphasising the Convention’s flexibility in the accommodation of economic and technological changes, the authors investigate the following topics:

  • an analysis of the absolute character of sovereignty;
  • territorial jurisdiction with respect to airspace;
  • market access and behaviour under economic regulation;
  • liberalisation of air services;
  • the position of airlines, airports, and providers of air navigation services in the context of the management of air traffic (ATM);
  • the regulation of drones, also in relation with the distinction between civil and State aircraft;
  • the role of international, principally ICAO, and regional aviation organisations, in particular, that of the European Union;
  • environmental protection measures such as abatement of noise and reduction of the damaging effects of gaseous emissions;
  • new methods of communication such as Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS);
  • security in aviation, with special reference to the adoption of cybersecurity measures.

whereas the Annexes include the original texts of the Paris Convention 1919 and the Chicago Convention 1944.

How this will help you:

With its insightful and thought-provocative, incisive perceptions put forward by distinguished aviation lawyers from all parts of the world, this book is without peer in its analysis of how the Chicago Convention affects international civil aviation and the operation and management of air services. Its multifaceted approach towards the current state of affairs from a legal and policy perspective will be welcomed by practitioners and law firms in the field and civil aviation authorities, as well as by academics and business persons with a stake in aviation. This book will thus serve the global community of aviation people.
