207 Statement by J. Forster at the Panel on the Convention against Enforced Disappearance, 61st session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, Geneva, 26 September 2007.

209 And, finally, there is the question of whether the term occupation is applicable – as such or in modified form – to the administration of foreign territories: for instance, the UN in Timor or in Kosovo. These questions are equally relevant when the transformative goals of occupation have been set under the UN Security Council’s mandate (i.e. Kosovo and Timor).

211 In various instances, international humanitarian law grants, expressis verbis, individual rights although, characteristically, they are framed in objective obligations: for example, Article 7 of Geneva Conventions I to III and Article 8 of Geneva Convention IV provide as follows: “[Protected persons] may in no circumstances renounce in part or in entirety the rights secured to them by the present Convention, and by the special agreements referred to in the foregoing Article, if such there be.”

212 This was a prominent feature of the development of European Community law: the Court of the European Communities, which regarded itself as a motor of European integration, has, since the van Gend and Loos case, deduced the right of persons and enterprises from objective constituting the “Common Market”. By enabling private actors to claim rights through judicial systems, the Court established the figure of “market citizens” as motors of integration. The same intensive pull(?) of integration is not visible within the universal order, but – over time – similar tendencies of coherence may come into play here too.
