International Law Reports, Volume 181 (Hardcover): Christopher Greenwood, Karen Lee International Law Reports, Volume 181 (Hardcover)
Christopher Greenwood, Karen Lee
R3,670 Discovery Miles 36 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Decisions of international courts and arbitrators, as well as judgments of national courts, are fundamental elements of modern public international law. The International Law Reports is the only publication in the world wholly devoted to the regular and systematic reporting in English of such decisions. It is therefore an absolutely essential work of reference. Volume 181 is devoted to the 2018 judgment of the Grand Chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Slovak Republic v. Achmea BV, the 2018 judgment of the Grand Chamber of Court of Justice of the European Union in R (Western Sahara Campaign UK) v. Commissioners for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs and Another and the translated judgment of the Norwegian Borgarting Court of Appeal in Huseini v. Ministry of Justice and Public Security.

Cambridge Studies in Law and Society - Measuring Justice: Quantitative Accountability and the National Prosecuting Authority in... Cambridge Studies in Law and Society - Measuring Justice: Quantitative Accountability and the National Prosecuting Authority in South Africa (Hardcover)
Johanna Mugler
R1,884 R1,738 Discovery Miles 17 380 Save R146 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Measuring Justice explores the ways in which South African court and managerial prosecutors deal with the quantification of social phenomena - such as justice, professional work or accountability - and address the radical simplifications of their inherent complexities, misrepresentations and editing as a consequence. While various studies show the concern of professionals about the damaging effects these quantitative forms of accountability have on the creativity, freedom and collaborative nature of expert systems, Mugler shows that the reactions and attitudes of these legal professionals differ substantially. Through careful scrutiny of the everyday work of prosecutors and how they reflect on the relationship between accountability, quantification and law, this book argues that actors who work daily with quantitative accountability measures develop a numerical reflexivity about the process.

Austerity and Law in Europe presents an interdisciplinary collection of essays that challenge traditional narratives of austerity.

On Nuclear Weapons: Denuclearization, Demilitarization and Disarmament - Selected Writings of Richard Falk (Hardcover): Stefan... On Nuclear Weapons: Denuclearization, Demilitarization and Disarmament - Selected Writings of Richard Falk (Hardcover)
Stefan Andersson
R2,117 R1,951 Discovery Miles 19 510 Save R166 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

We are at a time when international law and the law of war are particularly important. The testing of nuclear weapons that is being used in the rhetoric surrounding threats of war is creating new fears and heightening current tensions. Richard Falk has for decades been an outspoken authority calling for nuclear disarmament and the enforcement of non-proliferation treaties. In this collection of essays, Falk examines the global threats to all humanity posed by nuclear weapons. He is not satisfied with accepting arms control measures as a managerial stopgap to these threats and seeks no less than to move the world back from the nuclear precipice and towards denuclearization. Falk's essays reflect the wisdom and innovative thinking he has brought to his long career as a scholar and activist, as he reminds nuclear weapons states of their obligation under international law and moral imperative to seek nuclear disarmament.

International Law 2nd Edition (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Jan Klabbers International Law 2nd Edition (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Jan Klabbers 1
R885 R767 Discovery Miles 7 670 Save R118 (13%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Written by one of the world's leading international lawyers, this is the new and updated edition of Jan Klabber's landmark textbook. International law can be defined as 'the rules governing the legal relationship between nations and states', but in reality it is much more complex, with political, diplomatic and socio-economic factors shaping the law and its application. This refreshingly clear, concise textbook encourages students to view international law as a dynamic system of organizing the world. Bringing international law back to its first principles, the book is organised around four questions: where does it come from? To whom does it apply? How does it resolve conflict? And what does it say? Building on these questions with both academic rigour and clarity of expression, Professor Klabbers breathes life and energy into the subject. Footnotes point students to the wider academic debate while chapter introductions and final remarks reinforce learning. The second edition has been updated throughout, with particular attention to recent judicial decisions, and features new sections on sovereign debt relief, the prompt release of vessels, and the Antarctic.

Rules and Allies - Foreign Election Interventions (Hardcover): Johannes Bubeck, Nikolay Marinov Rules and Allies - Foreign Election Interventions (Hardcover)
Johannes Bubeck, Nikolay Marinov
R1,672 R1,546 Discovery Miles 15 460 Save R126 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

When and how do states intervene in elections in other countries? Foreign interveners may aim to further the process of clean elections, or they may support the campaign of a candidate they like. It could also be in their best interest to do both at the same time. Bubeck and Marinov systematically analyze various scenarios using a dataset covering more than three hundred elections in over a hundred countries. They show both theoretically and empirically that states with a liberal mission, such as the United States, combine promoting democracy with helping their political allies win office. Political divisions invite foreign interventions, and foreign interference, in turn, makes targeted societies more polarized along political lines. Whilst the authors argue that foreign interventions do not always harm democracy and may even help the cause of free elections, they also show how elections can turn into proxy wars, in which powerful states compete against each other, through their local allies.

The Harmonisation of National Legal Systems - Strategic Models and Factors (Hardcover): Antonios E. Platsas The Harmonisation of National Legal Systems - Strategic Models and Factors (Hardcover)
Antonios E. Platsas
R2,188 Discovery Miles 21 880 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book offers a novel perspective on the leading concept of harmonisation, advocating the mutual benefits and practical utility of harmonised law. Theoretical models and factors for harmonisation are explored in detail. Antonios E. Platsas acknowledges a range of additional factors and presents harmonisation as a widely applicable and useful theory. The Harmonisation of National Legal Systems gives an in-depth insight into the fundamental aspects of harmonisation, including the world of free trade, recognition of human rights and open socio-political systems. Two distinct models for the effective harmonisation of legal systems are explored: a general model and a specific model. The general model relates to minor formal changes introduced in the domestic sphere, while the specific model relates to significant and/or constitutional changes that would be necessitated in domestic law. These models allow for the effective implementation of harmonised legal norms in national spheres. The author examines comparative and socio-legal factors, identifies how the factors are modifiable and creates examples for the movement from theory to practice. Academics, researchers and advanced students of international, European and comparative law will find this an excellent point of reference due to the extensive exploration of the potential of harmonisation theory.

Lea Brilmayer, Chiara Giorgetti, Lorraine Charlton
R1,947 Discovery Miles 19 470 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

International claims commissions have, over the last few decades, established themselves as important and permanent fixtures in international adjudication. This book provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the workings and mechanics of claims commissions to assess their success and predict their utility in the future. The book authors examines the legal framework of an international claims commission and the basic elements its processing procedure, as well as exploring the difficulties and challenges associated with operating costs, remedies and compliance with judgments. International claims commissions are created ad hoc to consider large numbers of complex legal claims resulting from an international upheaval, making them important international dispute resolution mechanisms. By focusing in large part on the examples set by the United Nations Claims Commissions, the Iran US Claims Tribunal, and the Eritrea Ethiopia Claims Commission, the authors assess the reasons to establish a claims commission by discussing their legal and operating structures, issues related to evidence and costs and the challenges and successes of creating them. The book concludes with a detailed analysis of lessons learnt to guide policy makers in the creation of future claims commissions. Written by two academics and a former practitioner this book is a practical resource for will appeal to international law academics, counsel and judges in international courts and tribunals, policy makers in international organizations and foreign ministries, and diplomats.

Alexander Orakhelashvili
R1,003 Discovery Miles 10 030 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This Research Handbook provides a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the international law of jurisdiction and immunities, illustrating those aspects in which the law of jurisdiction and law of immunities are mutually interdependent, as well as shedding light on the implications of that interdependence. With authoritative contributions from recognized experts, it offers an impartial perspective on the applicable international law, independent from any positions held in governmental or other institutional circles.

Research Handbook on the Politics of International Law (Hardcover): Wayne Sandholtz, Christopher A Whytock Research Handbook on the Politics of International Law (Hardcover)
Wayne Sandholtz, Christopher A Whytock
R4,101 Discovery Miles 41 010 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

What is the relationship between politics and international law? Rather than exploring this question through the lens of the dominant paradigms of international relations theory - realism, liberalism and constructivism - this book proposes a different approach. Based on the premise that the relationship varies depending on the sites where it unfolds, and inspired by comparative politics and socio-legal studies, the book develops a novel framework for comparative analysis of politics and international law at different stages of governance and in different governance systems. Expert contributors apply this analytical framework to diverse fields of law and politics. Part I examines the problems of compliance, effectiveness and the domestic enforcement of international law, and legal institutions including domestic and international courts, national legislatures and regime complexes. Part II covers substantive fields of governance such as global financial regulation, environmental standards, trade, intellectual property and human rights. The final chapters in this Part tackle emerging yet critical issues in international law, including terrorism, cyber conflict and Internet regulation. Together, the chapters represent a significant step forward in the comparative analysis of politics and international law. This Research Handbook will be essential reading for students and academics in political science and law alike.

William A. Schabas, Shannonbrooke Murphy 2
R3,862 Discovery Miles 38 620 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Since the establishment of the Permanent Court of Arbitration for international dispute resolution in 1899, the number of international courts and tribunals has multiplied and the reach of their jurisdiction has steadily expanded. By providing a synthetic overview and critical analysis of these developments from multiple perspectives, this Research Handbook both contextualizes and stimulates future research and practice in this rapidly developing field. Made up of specially commissioned chapters by leading and emerging scholars, the book takes a thematic and interpretive, system-wide and inter-jurisdictional comparative approach to the main issues, debates and controversies related to the growth of international courts and tribunals. Its review of influential international judgements traverses the areas of international peace and security law, international human rights law, international criminal law and international economic law, while also including critical reflection by practitioners. This nuanced review of the latest thinking on scholarly debates and controversies in international courts and tribunals will be both a key resource for academic researchers and a concise introduction to the subject for post-graduate students. Its chapters also contain topics of practical relevance to lawyers and international decision-makers.

R5,079 Discovery Miles 50 790 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

International law's role in governing disasters is undergoing a formative period in its development and reach, in parallel with concerted efforts by the international community to respond more effectively to the increasing number and intensity of disasters across the world. This Research Handbook examines a broad range of legal regimes directly and indirectly relevant to disaster prevention, mitigation and reconstruction across a spectrum of natural and manmade disasters, including armed conflict. The editors take a broad, encompassing approach to the concept of disaster, concluding that a new corpus of international disaster law may be emerging. Key contributions interweave a number of important themes from an international law perspective across a wide range of discrete topics as diverse as water, food and energy security, dispute settlement, protection of vulnerable groups, cyber terrorism, international criminal law, climate change migration and international economics and trade law. This comprehensive study makes an important contribution to international law scholarship governing disasters, which in the past has largely focused on disaster response and relief law. The different perspectives incorporated in this Research Handbook are likely to appeal not only to students and academics, but equally to governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental actors drawn across the crisis, conflict and disaster management sectors.

Research Handbook on Eu Institutional Law (Hardcover): Adam Lazowski, Steven Blockmans Research Handbook on Eu Institutional Law (Hardcover)
Adam Lazowski, Steven Blockmans
R4,457 Discovery Miles 44 570 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Research Handbook on EU Institutional Law offers a critical look into the European Union: its legal foundations, competences and institutions. It provides an analysis of the EU legal system, its application at the national level and the prevalent role of the Court of Justice. Throughout the course of the Handbook the expert contributors discuss whether the European Union is well well-equipped for the 21st century and the numerous crises it has to handle. They revisit the call for an EU reform made in the Laeken Conclusions in 2001 to verify if its objectives have been achieved by the Treaty of Lisbon and in daily practice of the EU institutions. The book also delves into the concept of a Europe of different speeds, which - according to some - is inevitable in the EU comprising 28 Member States. Overall, the assessment of the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty is positive, even if there are plenty of suggestions for further reforms to re-fit the EU for purpose. Students and scholars will find this original Handbook to be an invaluable resource, particularly due to its focus on topics for future discussion. Researchers and policy-makers will also benefit from the points raised in this book.

Global International Society - A New Framework for Analysis (Paperback): Barry Buzan, Laust Schouenborg Global International Society - A New Framework for Analysis (Paperback)
Barry Buzan, Laust Schouenborg
R452 Discovery Miles 4 520 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This ambitious book provides a new framework for analysing global international society (GIS). In doing so, it also links the English School's approach more closely to classical sociology, constructivism, liberal institutionalism, realism and postcolonialism. It retells the expansion of international society story to explain why the differences among states are as important as their similarities in understanding the structure and dynamics of contemporary GIS. Drawing on differentiation theory, it sets out four ideal-type models for international society. These cover the 'like units' of the classical English School, as well as differentiation by geography, hierarchy/privilege, and function. These models offer a systematic way to integrate international and world society, and to understand the relationship between the deep structure of primary institutions, and the vast array of intergovernmental and international non-governmental organisations. In this pioneering book, Buzan and Schouenborg present the reader with the first systematic attempt to define criteria for assessing whether international society is becoming stronger or weaker.

Handbook of Transnational Environmental Crime (Hardcover): Lorraine Elliott, William H. Schaedla Handbook of Transnational Environmental Crime (Hardcover)
Lorraine Elliott, William H. Schaedla
R3,861 Discovery Miles 38 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Crimes associated with the illegal trade in wildlife, timber and fish stocks, and pollutants and waste have become increasingly transnational, organized and serious. They warrant attention because of their environmental consequences, their human toll, their impact on the rule of law and good governance, and their links with violence, corruption and a range of cross-over crimes. This ground-breaking, multi-disciplinary Handbook examines key transnational environmental crime sectors and explores its most significant conceptual, operational and enforcement challenges. Bringing together leading scholars and practitioners, this book presents in-depth analysis based on extensive academic research and operational and enforcement expertise. The sectors covered include illegal wildlife, timber, pollutant and waste trades, and crimes in the carbon market. The contextual chapters examine criminal networks and illicit chains of custody, local sociocultural, economic and political factors, the effectiveness of policy and operational responses, and international jurisdictional challenges. This Handbook will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars of global environmental politics, international environmental law, and environmental criminology as well as for regulatory and enforcement practitioners working to meet the challenges of transnational environmental crime.

This two-volume set gathers together some of the most significant contributions to the study of global health law.

By bringing such diverse perspectives into a single collection, together with an original introduction by the editor, this book will be an important resource for scholars and practitioners both in public health as well as in legal and policy fields such as trade and investment, human rights and the environment.

Stephen Allen, Daniel Costelloe, Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Paul Gragl, Edward Guntrip
R3,062 Discovery Miles 30 620 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Oxford Handbook of Jurisdiction in International Law provides an authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the concept of jurisdiction in international law. Jurisdiction plays a fundamental role in international law, limiting the exercise of legal authority over international legal subjects. But despite its importance, the concept has remained, until now, underdeveloped. Discussions of jurisdiction in international law regularly refer to classic heads of jurisdiction based on territoriality or nationality, or use the SS Lotus decision of the Permanent Court of International Justice as a starting point. However, traditional understandings of jurisdiction are facing new challenges. Globalization has increased the need for jurisdiction to be applied extraterritorially, non-State forms of law provide new theoretical challenges and intersections between different forms of jurisdiction have become more intricate. This Handbook provides a necessary re-examination of the concept of jurisdiction in international law through a thematic analysis of its history, its contemporary application, and how it needs to adapt to encompass future developments in international law. It examines some of the most contentious elements of jurisdiction by considering how the concept is being applied in specific substantive and institutional settings.

Labour Internationalism in the Global South - The SIGTUR Initiative (Hardcover): Robert O'Brien Labour Internationalism in the Global South - The SIGTUR Initiative (Hardcover)
Robert O'Brien
R1,668 R1,542 Discovery Miles 15 420 Save R126 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Labour internationalism is often viewed as impossible or inevitable, depending upon political perspective. O'Brien argues for a more nuanced, diverse understanding of labour internationalism, identifying six different 'faces', shaped by the national or global orientation of particular groups in the fields of production, regulation and ideas. Providing a general view of labour's global activity and a case study of the Southern Initiative on Globalisation and Trade Union Rights (SIGTUR), the book illustrates how the productive and regulatory structures of the global economy are pushing labour internationalism in particular directions. It details how leftist unions in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, India, the Philippines, South Africa, and South Korea have tried to bridge their differences and launch collective actions. Drawing upon twenty years of participant observation, O'Brien reveals a specific Global South approach based upon anti-imperialism, anti-capitalism and empathetic internationalism.

This Handbook will be an invaluable resource to students and scholars of EU policies and politics and other related disciplines. In particular, they will benefit from the clarity with which the history and functioning of Cohesion policy is laid out. Policy-makers and other practitioners will also find this book of interest, due to its presentation of relevant debates.

Eutopia - New Philosophy and New Law for a Troubled World (Hardcover): Philip Allott Eutopia - New Philosophy and New Law for a Troubled World (Hardcover)
Philip Allott
R2,429 Discovery Miles 24 290 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The human world is in a mess. The human mind is in a mess. And now the human species is threatening its own survival by its own inventions and by war. For thousands of years, human beings conducted a great debate about the human condition and human possibilities, about philosophy and society and law. In 1516, Thomas More, in his book Utopia, contributed to the ancient debate, at another time of profound transformation in the human world. In our own time, we have witnessed a collapse in intellectual life, and a collapse in the theory and practice of education. The old debate is, for all practical purposes, dead. In 2016, Philip Allott's Eutopia resumes the debate about the role of philosophy and society and law in making a better human future, responding to a human world that More could not have imagined. And he lets us hear the voices of some of those who contributed to the great debate in the past, voices that still resonate today.
