The International Aviation Law Institute is pleased to announce that Prof. Brian Havel's new book, Beyond Open Skies: A New Regime for International Aviation (Kluwer Law International, 2009), will be officially launched at the German Marshall Fund in Washington, D.C. on March 27. Introducing the book will be John Bruton, former Prime Minister of Ireland and current European Union Ambassador to the United States. Ambassador Bruton will discuss potential reforms to the international air transport regulatory system with specific reference to the work left unfinished by the 2007 U.S./EC Air Transport Agreement. Prof. Havel, along with the Institute's Executive Director Stephen Rudolph and FedEx/United Airlines Research Fellow Gabriel Sanchez, will be in attendance. Those interested in attending the event may send inquiries to the Institute.
Beyond Open Skies offers a systematic comparative analysis of the legal and policy dimensions of airline deregulation by federal fiat in the United States and by supranational collaboration in the European Union. The book draws upon a variety of sources, including very recent developments in U.S. and EC international aviation law, policy, and diplomacy, to propose a genuine multilateral air transport system. It examines the potential of the "open skies" initiative, in the aftermath of the 2007 U.S./EC Air Transport Agreement, to inspire a genuine globalization of the world’s air transport industry.
