Enforced Disappearance in International Law

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Lisa Ott

This book explores the international legal framework governing the crime and human rights violation of enforced disappearance. It includes a thorough analysis and comparison of the existing international human rights case law and an assessment of the rules of international humanitarian law and international criminal law applicable to enforced disappearance. The study includes a meticulous review, comparison, and analysis of the case law of international criminal tribunals, the Human Rights Committee, the Inter-American and European Courts of Human Rights, and the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights.

Labour Law, Fundamental Rights and Social Europe

(Hart Publishing, September 2011)

Mia Rönnmar (Ed)

This volume of peer-reviewed essays arises from the work of the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies. The chapters focus on labor and social security law, and provide insights into a range of topical and important developments, seeking new and interesting perspectives. Sweden has been a member of the European Union since 1995, and EU law and European law perspectives have been well integrated into Swedish labor law and social security law research.

……

The Foundations of European Private Law

(Hart Publishing, September 2011)

Hans W Micklitz, Leone Niglia, Stephen Weatherill and Roger Brownsword (Eds)

There remains an urgent need for a deeper discussion of the theoretical, political, and federal dimensions of the European codification project. While much valuable work has already been undertaken, the essays in this collection take as their starting point the proposition that further reflection and critical thought will enhance the quality and efficacy of the on-going work of the various codification bodies.

……

Outer Space in Society, Politics and Law

(Springer, 2011)

Christian Brünner and Alexander Soucek (Eds)

“Outer Space in society, politics and law” is an inter-disciplinary approach to the understanding of modern space law. Technical, cultural and historical aspects lay the foundation for a sound comprehension why space law norms have been established and what they mean in practice. The reader will realize the impact space and spaceflight have on society – from Stonehenge to climate change. A new approach to presenting space law: comprehensive and illustrative.

……

Law and Policy of Innovation in Europe

(Springer, 2011)

Massimiliano Granieri and Andrea Renda

The book aims at providing a critical view of the innovation policy in Europe and a review of the legal instruments used by the European institutions to achieve the goals of increasing the overall competitiveness of the system by fostering innovation-based economic activities. An overview of the current institutional framework of Europe in light of the announced policy plan of Europe2020 is offered.

Charity Crossing Borders. The Fundamental Freedoms’ Influence on Charity and Donor Taxation in Europe

(Wolters Kluwer, September 2011)

Sabine Heidenbauer

Throughout the European Union, national income tax systems support charitable activities by way of preferential treatment. However, a number of Member States operate relief regimes which appear to trigger the question of compatibility with Union law with respect to the fundamental freedoms.

This book examines charity and donor taxation regimes across a wide range of Member States with the author focusing on compatibility with EU non-discrimination law. She examines twenty national regimes, both comparatively and from the perspective of overarching EU law.

Civil Liability for Marine Oil Pollution Damage: A Comparative and Economic Study of The International, US and Chinese Compensation Rights

(Wolters Kluwer, September 2011)

Wang Hui

This is an in-depth examination of the civil liability regime for marine oil pollution damage from a law and economics perspective which examines the efficiency and effectiveness of the regime, with particular attention to whether it is in fact designed in the public interest or merely a distribution of risks and costs among interested parties. The international regime on civil liability for marine oil pollution rests on the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage (CLC) and the International Convention on the Establishment of an International Fund for Compensation for Oil Pollution Damage (Fund Convention). However, the world’s biggest oil consumer and importer – the United States – has ratified neither, preferring its own Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), and China – currently the world’s second oil-consuming country – has not ratified the Fund Convention. Thus is it is reasonable to compare the three regimes – international, US, and China.

Der Menschenrechtsrat der Vereinten Nationen

(Mohr Siebeck, 2011)

Daniela Karrenstein

Published in German. The United Nations Human Rights Council. Taking stock of the reform process which led to the establishment of the Human Rights Council in replacement of the Commission on Human Rights and the subsequent institution-building process, Daniela Karrenstein depicts new avenues as well as limitations for the body whose establishment was inextricably connected with the hope for a new era in human rights protection by the United Nations.

……

Reforms of Civil Procedure in Germany and Norway

(Mohr Siebeck, 2011)

Volker Lipp and Halvard H. Fredriksen (Eds)

Norwegian civil procedure used to be heavily influenced by German and Austrian law. Even the new Civil Procedure Act of 2005 does not represent a full break with the German and although not a member of the European Union, the Norwegian participation in the European Economic Area leaves EU laws of civil procedure relevant in the Norwegian context. Considering the common heritage and acknowledging the common challenges on the national and European level, the stage should be set for a fruitful comparison of German and Norwegian civil procedure.

……

Human Rights in Times of Conflict and Terrorism

(Oxford University Press, 22 September 2011)

Louise Doswald-Beck

This book is a guide to international human rights law as it applies to situations of armed conflict, to counter-terrorism measures and to any other situation of actual or potential violence requiring security measures. It begins with a presentation on the application of human rights to such situations and an explanation of the regime of limitations and derogations. After an overall description of the relationship between human rights law, on the one hand, and international humanitarian law and international counter-terrorism measures, on the other, the book concentrates on the rights themselves. The book concludes with a section on how international human rights law protects certain vulnerable and disadvantaged populations in such situations.

……

The Emergence of EU Contract Law

(Oxford University Press, 22 September 2011)

Lucinda Miller

The emergence of a pan-European contract law is one of the most significant legal developments in Europe today. This book examines the origins of the discipline and its subsequent evolution. It brings the discussion up-to-date with full analysis of the debate on the Common Frame of Reference and the future that this ambiguous instrument may have in the contemporary European legal framework.

World Trade Law after Neoliberalism: Reimagining the Global Economic Order

(Oxford University Press, 22 September 2011)

Andrew Lang

The rise of economic liberalism in the latter stages of the 20th century coincided with a fundamental transformation of international economic governance, especially through the law of the World Trade Organization. In this book, Andrew Lang provides a new account of this transformation, and considers its enduring implications for international law. Against the commonly-held idea that ‘neoliberal’ policy prescriptions were encoded into WTO law, Lang argues that the last decades of the 20th century saw a reinvention of the international trade regime, and a reconstitution of its internal structures of knowledge.

IMAGINING A SHARED FUTURE: Perspectives on Law, Conflict and Economic Development in the Middle East

(CMP Publishing, 2011)

KoenByttebier and Kim Van der Borght (eds.), Cailin Mackenzie (Assoc. ed.)

At a time of constant change in the diplomatic and political debate, Imagining a Shared Future: Perspectives on Law, Conflict and Economic Development in the Middle East contributes to the discussion and development of solutions to the stagnating economic situation in Palestine.All too often economic aspects of the development of this region, and their role in building a sustainable future, are ignored or considered in sectoral or thematic isolation. Imagining a Shared Future: Perspectives on Law, Conflict and Economic Development in the Middle East brings together a variety of papers from multiple disciplines, written by experts from the region and beyond, with a view to breaking some of this isolated thinking. From the longstanding question of the return of refugees, to the treatment of the Bedouin population of Israel, to the concept of spacio-cide and the destruction of land and land rights, this compilation offers the reader the opportunity to reconsider issues with new insights and face some of the challenges that must be met in the move for reform and development.

International Social Security Standards in the European Union

(Intersentia, September 2011)

TinekeDijkhoff

Within the European Union, social security basically remains a national field of competence. The lack of common norms has paved the way for a large disparity in social protection between EU Member States, which is not conducive to the European single market. Moreover, it may lead to an increase in poverty and social exclusion in some regions and intensify economic competition between Member States on the basis of labour costs.  At the same time, almost all EU Member States are bound by one or more international social security instruments developed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and by the Council of Europe. The most important instrument, ILO Convention No. 102 on Minimum Standards of Social Security, was adopted in 1952 with a view to promoting the right to social security for everyone, to guide nations in the development of their social security systems, to create higher standards, and to prevent an imbalance in markets caused by unequal social costs.

Building European Private International Law.  Twenty Years’ Work by GEDIP

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Edited by Marc Fallon, Patrick Kinsch, and Christian Kohler

During the last twenty years, private international law has been significantly transformed in Europe. Since its creation in 1991, the European Group for Private International Law (EGPIL, commonly known as GEDIP) sustained this evolution. Composed of specialists of private international law who are also interested in European law, the Group focuses on the interaction between these two fields of research. The work of the Group is led in regard of international instruments of various nature, in particular those of the Hague Conference on Private International Law and the European Convention for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms. The issues covered by the annual meetings are chosen and analysed on an independent way without mandate from European or international institutions. The aim is to foster progress of knowledge by using an issue-by-issue method. This working method allowed the Group to develop new tools which turned out to sustain the preparation of several European acts in civil and commercial matters, namely, the Regulations Brussels II, Rome I, Rome II and Rome III, as well as possibly the forthcoming Regulation on succession or the revision of the Brussels I Regulation.

The World Food Programme and Global Politics
First Forum Press, 2011
Sandy Ross

How has the World Food Programme come to be so well-regarded—even in the US—despite being part of the much-maligned UN system? What are the political and institutional conditions that have enabled it to accrue legitimacy as an international organization?

For a democratic United Nations and the Rule of Law
Development Dialogue
No. 56, June 2011

……

The Tobacco Challenge: Legal Policy and Consumer Protection

(Ashgate, October 2011)

Geraint Howells

Addressing three central questions of legal policy, this is an interesting and comprehensive analysis of the need to control and regulate tobacco consumption. The core issues of the book are litigation vs. regulation with a comparative analysis of the US and European approaches; the challenge to regulate tobacco as a lawful product within constitutional limits to promote the reduction of risks to health and the extent to which consumers should be entrusted with information to make their own informed choices. Suggesting dialogue and transparency in policy development, this book covers advertising, psychology, ethics, economics and health in addition to the central debate about the litigation and regulation of tobacco and the role of consumer protection law and private law.
