Constitutionalism Across Borders in the Struggle Against Terrorism (Hardcover): Federico Fabbrini, Vicki C. Jackson Constitutionalism Across Borders in the Struggle Against Terrorism (Hardcover)
Federico Fabbrini, Vicki C. Jackson
R2,546 Discovery Miles 25 460 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This edited collection explores the topic of constitutionalism across borders in the struggle against terrorism, analyzing how constitutional rules and principles relevant in the field of counter-terrorism move across borders. Various chapters underline how constitution-like norms consolidate at the level of international and supranational organizations as a limit to the exercise of public power in the field of counter-terrorism policy, especially counter-terrorism financing. Other chapters examine the extraterritorial application of constitutional rights and the migration of constitutional norms - or anti-constitutional practices - from one state to another. Still others consider how transnational cooperation between states in areas such as intelligence gathering and data sharing may call for updating domestic constitutional law rules or for new international law compacts entrenching rights across borders. What emerges is a picture of the complex interplay of constitutional law, international law, criminal law and the law of war, creating webs of norms and regulations that apply in the struggle against terrorism conducted across increasingly porous borders. The book will be of particular interest to academics and graduate or postgraduate students working in the fields of constitutional law, international law, human rights, comparative law and national security law. It may also be of interest to practitioners concerned with national security, counter-terrorism, and related questions of individual rights.

Judges as Guardians of Constitutionalism and Human Rights (Hardcover): Martin Scheinin, Helle Krunke, Marina Aksenova Judges as Guardians of Constitutionalism and Human Rights (Hardcover)
Martin Scheinin, Helle Krunke, Marina Aksenova
R2,667 Discovery Miles 26 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

There are many challenges that national and supranational judges have to face when fulfilling their roles as guardians of constitutionalism and human rights. This book brings together academics and judges from different jurisdictions in an endeavour to uncover the intricacies of the judicial function. The contributors discuss several points that each represent contemporary challenges to judging: analysis of judicial balancing of conflicting considerations; the nature of courts' legitimacy and its alleged dependence on public support; the role of judges in upholding constitutional values in the times of transition to democracy, surveillance and the fight against terrorism; and the role of international judges in guaranteeing globally recognized fundamental rights and freedoms. This book will be of interest to human rights scholars focusing on the issues of judicial oversight, as well as constitutional law scholars interested in comparative perspectives on the role of judges in different contexts. It will also be useful to national constitutional court judges, and law clerks aiming to familiarise themselves with judicial practices within other jurisdictions.

Judges and Generals in the Making of Modern Egypt - How Institutions Sustain and Undermine Authoritarian Regimes (Hardcover):... Judges and Generals in the Making of Modern Egypt - How Institutions Sustain and Undermine Authoritarian Regimes (Hardcover)
Mahmoud Hamad
R1,893 R1,747 Discovery Miles 17 470 Save R146 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Why do authoritarian regimes survive? How do dictators fail? What role do political institutions play in these two processes? Many of the answers to these questions can be traced to the same source: the interaction between institutions and preferences. Using Egypt as a case study, Professor Mahmoud Hamad describes how the synergy between judges and generals created the environment for the present government and a delicate balance for its survival. The history of modern Egypt is one of the struggle between authoritarian governments, and forces that advocate for more democratic rights. While the military has provided dictatorial leaders, the judiciary provides judges who have the power to either support or stymie authoritarian power. Judges and Generals in the Making of Modern Egypt provides a historically grounded explanation for the rise and demise of authoritarianism, and is one of the first studies of Egypt's judicial institutions within a single analytical framework.

Research Handbook on Global Administrative Law (Hardcover): Sabino Cassese Research Handbook on Global Administrative Law (Hardcover)
Sabino Cassese
R4,841 Discovery Miles 48 410 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This Handbook explores the main themes and topics of the emerging field of Global Administrative Law with contributions by leading scholars and experts from universities and organizations around the world. The variety of the subjects addressed and the internationality of the Handbook's perspectives make for a truly global and multi-dimensional view of the field. The book first examines the growth of global administrations, their interactions within global networks, the emergence of a global administrative process, and the development of the rule of law and democratic principles at a global level. It goes on to illustrate the relationship between global law and other legal orders, with particular attention to regional systems and national orders. The final section, devoted to the emergence of a global legal culture, brings the book full circle by identifying the growth of a global epistemic community. The Research Handbook on Global Administrative Law provides a contemporary overview of the nascent field in detailed yet accessible terms, making it a valuable book for university courses. Academics and scholars with an interest in international law, administrative law, public law, and comparative law will find value in this book, as well as legal professionals involved with international and supranational organizations and national civil servants dealing with supranational organizations.

Fiduciary Government (Hardcover): Evan J. Criddle, Evan Fox-Decent, Andrew S. Gold, Sung Hui Kim, Paul B Miller Fiduciary Government (Hardcover)
Evan J. Criddle, Evan Fox-Decent, Andrew S. Gold, Sung Hui Kim, Paul B Miller
R2,270 Discovery Miles 22 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The idea that the state is a fiduciary to its citizens has a long pedigree - ultimately reaching back to the ancient Greeks, and including Hobbes and Locke among its proponents. Public fiduciary theory is now experiencing a resurgence, with applications that range from international law, to insider trading by members of Congress, to election law and gerrymandering. This book is the first of its kind: a collection of chapters by leading writers on public fiduciary subject areas. The authors develop new accounts of how fiduciary principles apply to representation; to officials and judges; to problems of legitimacy and political obligation; to positive rights; to the state itself; and to the history of ideas. The resulting volume should be of great interest to political theorists and public law scholars, to private fiduciary law scholars, and to students seeking an introduction to this new and increasingly relevant area of study.

Cass R. Sunstein
R507 R399 Discovery Miles 3 990 Save R108 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In recent years, 'nudge units' or 'behavioral insights teams' have been created in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and other nations. All over the world, public officials are using the behavioral sciences to protect the environment, promote employment and economic growth, reduce poverty, and increase national security. In this book, Cass R. Sunstein, the eminent legal scholar and best-selling co-author of Nudge (2008), breaks new ground with a deep yet highly readable investigation into the ethical issues surrounding nudges, choice architecture, and mandates, addressing such issues as welfare, autonomy, self-government, dignity, manipulation, and the constraints and responsibilities of an ethical state. Complementing the ethical discussion, The Ethics of Influence: Government in the Age of Behavioral Science contains a wealth of new data on people's attitudes towards a broad range of nudges, choice architecture, and mandates.

EU Justice and Home Affairs Law (Multiple copy pack, 4th Revised edition): Steve Peers EU Justice and Home Affairs Law (Multiple copy pack, 4th Revised edition)
Steve Peers
R4,151 Discovery Miles 41 510 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Steve Peers' seminal text on the justice and home affairs law of the European Union appears in its fourth edition, providing a detailed examination of EU legislation and case law on the issues of immigration, asylum, visas, border controls, and police and criminal law cooperation, discussing the impact and ongoing development of EU law in these complex and controversial areas. The updated edition, divided into two volumes entitled EU Asylum and Immigration Law and EU Criminal Law, Policing, and Civil Law, particularly covers new EU legislation, case law, or operational developments since 2010 on internal border checks, external border controls, visa lists, litigation to obtain a visa, the Schengen Information System, the Visa Information System, family reunion, non-EU students, long-term residents, all aspects of refugee law (the definition of 'refugee' and subsidiarity protection, the rights of asylum-seekers, Member States' responsibility for asylum-seekers), irregular migrants' rights, fair trials legislation, the European Arrest Warrant, the European Investigation Order, crime victims' rights, and data protection. It also covers the institutional framework for these issues, the related human rights aspects, and the connections with other areas of EU law, like the free movement of EU citizens. Finally, it summarizes EU civil law rules, and is updated to cover new legislation on civil jurisdiction, insolvency, small claims, and cross-border family issues. This edition is the definitive guide to these complex, controversial and fast-developing areas of EU law and will be invaluable to scholars, practitioners, and students in the field.

EU Executive Discretion and the Limits of Law (Hardcover): Joana Mendes EU Executive Discretion and the Limits of Law (Hardcover)
Joana Mendes
R1,719 Discovery Miles 17 190 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The increase in the European Union's executive powers in the areas of economic and financial governance has thrown into sharp relief the challenges of EU law in constituting, framing, and constraining the decision-making processes and political choices that have hitherto supported European integration. The constitutional implications of crisis-induced transformations have been much debated but have largely overlooked the tension between law and discretion that the post-2010 reforms have brought to the fore. This book focuses on this tension and explores the ways in which legal norms may (or may not) constrain and structure the discretion of the EU executive. The developments in the EU's post-crisis financial and economic governance act as a reference point from which to analyze the normative problems pertaining to the law's relationship to the exercise of discretion. Structured in three parts, the book starts by analyzing the challenges to the maxim that the law both grounds and constrains EU executive and administrative discretion, setting out the concepts, problems and approaches to the relation between law and discretion both in general public law and in EU law. It progresses to analyze how these problems and approaches have unfolded in EU's financial, economic and monetary governance. Finally, it moves on from these specific developments to assess how existing legal principles and means of judicial review contribute to ensuring the rationality and legality of EU's discretionary powers.

Anti-Impunity and the Human Rights Agenda (Paperback): Karen L. Engle, Zinaida Miller, Denise Davis Anti-Impunity and the Human Rights Agenda (Paperback)
Karen L. Engle, Zinaida Miller, Denise Davis
R662 Discovery Miles 6 620 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In the twenty-first century, fighting impunity has become both the rallying cry and a metric of progress for human rights. The new emphasis on criminal prosecution represents a fundamental change in the positions and priorities of students and practitioners of human rights and transitional justice: it has become almost unquestionable common sense that criminal punishment is a legal, political, and pragmatic imperative for addressing human rights violations. This book challenges that common sense. It does so by documenting and critically analyzing the trend toward an anti-impunity norm in a variety of institutional and geographical contexts, with an eye toward the interaction between practices at the global and local levels. Together, the chapters demonstrate how this laser focus on anti-impunity has created blind spots in practice and in scholarship that result in a constricted response to human rights violations, a narrowed conception of justice, and an impoverished approach to peace.

Understanding Privacy (Paperback): Daniel J. Solove Understanding Privacy (Paperback)
Daniel J. Solove
R477 R416 Discovery Miles 4 160 Save R61 (13%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Privacy is one of the most important concepts of our time, yet it is also one of the most elusive. As rapidly changing technology makes information increasingly available, scholars, activists, and policymakers have struggled to define privacy, with many conceding that the task is virtually impossible.

In this concise and lucid book, Daniel J. Solove offers a comprehensive overview of the difficulties involved in discussions of privacy and ultimately provides a provocative resolution. He argues that no single definition can be workable, but rather that there are multiple forms of privacy, related to one another by family resemblances. His theory bridges cultural differences and addresses historical changes in views on privacy. Drawing on a broad array of interdisciplinary sources, Solove sets forth a framework for understanding privacy that provides clear, practical guidance for engaging with relevant issues.

"Understanding Privacy" will be an essential introduction to long-standing debates and an invaluable resource for crafting laws and policies about surveillance, data mining, identity theft, state involvement in reproductive and marital decisions, and other pressing contemporary matters concerning privacy.

Private law and human rights - Bringing rights home in Scotland and South Africa (Paperback): Elspeth Reid, Daniel Visser Private law and human rights - Bringing rights home in Scotland and South Africa (Paperback)
Elspeth Reid, Daniel Visser
R821 R655 Discovery Miles 6 550 Save R166 (20%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Scotland and South Africa are mixed jurisdictions, combining features of common law and civil law traditions. Over the last decade, a shared feature in both Scotland and South Africa has been a new and intense focus on human rights. In Scotland the European Convention on Human Rights now constitutes an important element in the foundation of all domestic law. Similarly, the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, adopted in 1996, has as its cornerstone a Bill of Rights that binds not only the legislature, the executive, the judiciary and all organs of state, but also private parties. Of course, the `constitutional moments' from which these documents sprang were very different and the Scottish and South African experience in some aspects could not be more dissimilar. Yet in many respects the parallels are close and compelling. This book, written by experts from both jurisdictions, examines exactly how human-rights provisions influence private law, looking at all branches of the subject. Moreover, it gives a unique perspective by comparing the approach in these kindred legal systems, thus providing a benchmark for both.

America's Lone Star Constitution - How Supreme Court Cases from Texas Shape the Nation (Paperback): Lucas A. Powe America's Lone Star Constitution - How Supreme Court Cases from Texas Shape the Nation (Paperback)
Lucas A. Powe
R617 R475 Discovery Miles 4 750 Save R142 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Texas has created more constitutional law than any other state. In any classroom nationwide, any basic constitutional law course can be taught using nothing but Texas cases. That, however, understates the history and politics behind the cases. Beyond representing all doctrinal areas of constitutional law, Texas cases deal with the major issues of the nation. Leading legal scholar and Supreme Court historian Lucas A. Powe, Jr., charts the rich and pervasive development of Texas-inspired constitutional law. From voting rights to railroad regulations, school finance to capital punishment, poverty to civil liberties, this wide-ranging and eminently readable book provides a window into the relationship between constitutional litigation and ordinary politics at the Supreme Court, illuminating how all of the fiercest national divides over what the Constitution means took shape in Texas.

R556 R439 Discovery Miles 4 390 Save R117 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This Companion provides a broad, historically informed introduction to the study of the US constitutional system. In place of the usual laundry lists of cases, doctrines, and theories, it presents a picture of the constitutional system in action, with separate sections devoted to constitutional principles, organizational structures, and the various legal and extra-legal 'actions' through which litigators and average citizens have attempted to bring about constitutional change. Finally, the volume covers a number of subjects that are rarely discussed in works aimed at a general audience, but which are critical to ensuring that constitutional rights are honored in the day-to-day lives of citizens. These include standing and causes of action, suits against officeholders, and the inner workings of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). This Companion places present-day constitutional controversies in historical context, and offers insights from a range of disciplines, including history, political science, and law.

Patents, Human Rights and Access to Science (Hardcover): Aurora Plomer Patents, Human Rights and Access to Science (Hardcover)
Aurora Plomer
R1,819 Discovery Miles 18 190 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The new millennium has been described as `the century of biology', but scientific progress and access to medicines has been marred by global disputes over ownership of the science by universities and private companies. This book examines the challenges posed by the modern patent system to the right of everyone to access the benefits of science in international law. Aurora Plomer retraces the genesis and evolution of the key Articles in the UN system (Article 27 UDHR and Article 15 ICESCR). She combines the historiography of these Articles with a novel perspective on the moral foundations of rights of access to science to draw out implications for today's controversies on patents in the life-sciences. The analysis suggests that access to science as a fundamental right requires both freedom from political and religious interference and the existence of enabling research institutions and educational facilities which promote the flow of knowledge through transparent and open structures. From this perspective, the global patent system is shown to fail spectacularly when it comes to the human rights ideal of universal access to science. The book concludes that a fundamental restructuring of patent institutions is required, in which democratic oversight of patent policies would ensure meaningful realization of the right of everyone to access the benefits of science. Students and scholars of international law, particularly those focusing on intellectual property and human rights, will find this book to be of considerable interest. It will also be of use to practitioners in the field.

Property, Labour and Legal Regulation - Dignity or Dependence? (Hardcover): Mark Findlay Property, Labour and Legal Regulation - Dignity or Dependence? (Hardcover)
Mark Findlay
R1,946 Discovery Miles 19 460 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this revealing comparative study, Mark Findlay examines the problematic nexus between undervalued labour and vulnerable migration status in dis-embedded markets. It highlights the frustrations raised by timeless regulatory failure and the chronic complicity of private property arrangements in delivering unsustainable market engagement. Mark Findlay identifies the challenge for normative and functional foundations of equitable governance, by repositioning regulatory principle, to restore dignity to market relations. The accountability of property through wider access and inclusion, it is argued, grounds commodified occupation as a vitally valuable social bond in which workers are empowered to participate rather than suffer exploitation. The comparative analysis of the EU and ASEAN regulatory contexts reveals that it is not simply more regulatory activity, but rather its reversion from market interests to human values, which will advance sustainability. Property, Labour and Legal Regulation offers an insightful, critical analysis of crucial contemporary issues facing social administrators, lawyers and policy makers working in the fields of migration, labour law and regulation. Its broad disciplinary coverage lends itself to students of law and regulation who will benefit from this unique evaluation of private property, labour relations and migration exclusivity.

Achieving Democracy - The Future of Progressive Regulation (Paperback): Sidney A. Shapiro, Joseph P. Tomain Achieving Democracy - The Future of Progressive Regulation (Paperback)
Sidney A. Shapiro, Joseph P. Tomain
R722 Discovery Miles 7 220 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Democracy is the ability to participate freely and equally in the political and economic affairs of the country. Americans have relied on philosophical pragmatism and on the impulse of political progressivism to express those creedal democratic values. Achieving Democracy argues that, in the last 30 years, however, by focusing on free markets and small government, America has since lost its grasp on these crucial democratic values. Economically, the vast majority of Americans have been made worse off due to a historically unprecedented redistribution of wealth from the lower and middle classes to the top one percent. Politically, partisan gridlock has hampered efforts to seek fairer taxes, responsive and effective regulation, reliable health care, and better education, among other needs. Achieving Democracy critiques the history of the last 30 years of neoliberal government in the United States, and enables an understanding of the dynamic and changing nature of contemporary government and the future of the regulatory state. Sidney A. Shapiro and Joseph P. Tomain demonstrate how lessons from the past can be applied today to regain essential democratic losses within the successful framework of a progressive government to ultimately construct a good society for all citizens.

Comparative Constitutional Law in Asia (Paperback): Rosalind Dixon, Tom Ginsburg Comparative Constitutional Law in Asia (Paperback)
Rosalind Dixon, Tom Ginsburg
R681 Discovery Miles 6 810 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Comparative constitutional law is a field of increasing importance around the world, but much of the literature is focused on Europe, North America, and English-speaking jurisdictions. The importance of Asia for the broader field is demonstrated here in original contributions that look thematically at issues from a general perspective, with special attention on how they have been treated in East Asian jurisdictions. The authors - leading comparativists from around the world - illuminate material from Asian jurisdictions on matters such as freedom of religion, constitutional courts, property rights, emergency regimes and the drafting process of constitutions. Together they present a picture of a region that is grappling with complex constitutional issues and is engaged with developments in the rest of the world, while at the same time pursuing distinctive local solutions that deserve close attention. This unique scholarly study will prove an important research tool for Asian scholars, constitutional lawyers within Asia and comparative constitutional scholars around the world.

Reclaiming Everyday Peace - Local Voices in Measurement and Evaluation After War (Hardcover): Pamina Firchow Reclaiming Everyday Peace - Local Voices in Measurement and Evaluation After War (Hardcover)
Pamina Firchow
R1,598 R1,500 Discovery Miles 15 000 Save R98 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Bringing armed conflicts to an end is difficult; restoring a lasting peace can be considerably harder. Reclaiming Everyday Peace addresses the effectiveness and impact of local level interventions on communities affected by war. Using an innovative methodology to generate participatory numbers, Pamina Firchow finds that communities saturated with external interventions after war do not have substantive higher levels of peacefulness according to community-defined indicators of peace than those with lower levels of interventions. These findings suggest that current international peacebuilding efforts are not very effective at achieving peace by local standards because disproportionate attention is paid to reconstruction, governance and development assistance with little attention paid to community ties and healing. Firchow argues that a more bottom up approach to measuring the effectiveness of peacebuilding is required. By finding ways to effectively communicate local community needs and priorities to the international community, efforts to create an atmosphere for an enduring peace are possible.
