Intellectual Property And Climate Change:

Inventing Clean Technologies

(Edward Elgar, 2011)

Matthew Rimmer

In the wake of the international summits in Copenhagen and Cancún, there is an urgent need to consider the role of intellectual property law in encouraging research, development, and diffusion of clean technologies to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. This book charts the patent landscapes and legal conflicts emerging in a range of fields of innovation – including renewable forms of energy, such as solar power, wind power, and geothermal energy; as well as biofuels, green chemistry, green vehicles, energy efficiency, and smart grids. As well as reviewing key international treaties, this book provides a detailed analysis of current trends in patent policy and administration in key nation states, and offers clear recommendations for law reform. It considers such options as technology transfer, compulsory licensing, public sector licensing, and patent pools; and analyses the development of Climate Innovation Centres, the Eco-Patent Commons, and environmental prizes, such as the L-Prize, the H-Prize, and the X-Prizes. This book will have particular appeal to policy-makers given its focus upon recent legislative developments and reform proposals, as well as legal practitioners by developing a better understanding of recent legal, scientific, and business developments, and how they affect their practice. Innovators, scientists and researchers will also benefit from reading this book.

The Social Security Position of Irregular Migrant Workers

New Insights from National Social Security Law and International Law

(Intersentia, October 2011)

Klaus Kapuy

How should a State treat an irregular migrant worker, i.e. a foreign worker without authorisation to stay and/or work in the country, who is confronted with the realisation of a social risk? For instance, how should the State deal with an irregular migrant worker who becomes incapacitated for work due to a labour accident? Should he/she be treated like any other worker and qualify for income replacement benefits, medical benefits and labour-market reintegration measures? Or should the worker be denied benefits since he/she lacks work authorisation and may also lack authorisation to be in the country? This book addresses these questions and sets out proposals on how irregular migrant workers should be treated in national social security law. These are based on an analysis of the current social security position of irregular migrant workers and of a reference group, i.e. a country’s own nationals who engage in undeclared work, in three selected Western States: Belgium, Canada and the Netherlands. In addition, the author conducts an in-depth investigation of the existing international legal framework (UN, ILO, EU, and CoE law), in order to ascertain the legal limits of any proposal on the legal position of irregular migrant workers.

The Foundations of European Private Law

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Edited by Roger Brownsword, Hans-W Micklitz, Leone Niglia and Stephen Weatherill

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 chapters in this volume 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. The volume contains chapters by representatives of the Common Frame of Reference, the Study Group and the Acquis Group as well as by those who have not been involved in particular projects but who have previously commented more distantly on their work – for instance those belonging to the Trento Group, and the Social Justice Group. The chapters between them represent the most comprehensive attempt so far to survey the state of the codification project, its theoretical, political and federal foundations and the future prospects for enforcement and compliance.

Disability and Employment

A Contemporary Disability Human Rights Approach Applied to Danish, Swedish and EU Law and Policy

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Maria VentegodtLiisberg

This book seeks to define a contemporary disability human rights approach for the field of employment. Based on an analysis of the newly-adopted UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and present-day interpretations of international and European human rights instruments, it identifies four main requirements as characterising the contemporary disability human rights approach on the labour market: – substantive equality founded on inclusive general structures, – a definition of disability which recognises that disability results from the interaction between impairment and social structures and that all persons may at one time or another of their lives be disabled, – involvement of organisations of disabled persons in law and policy-making, and – a rights-based approach. It examines Danish and Swedish employment law and policy as well as their compliance with contemporary disability human rights. In addition, EU law and policy in the field of disability employment law and policy are examined in relation to the contemporary disability human rights approach. The analysis and comparison of Danish and Swedish law and policy, which is done on the basis both of legal sources and statistical information on the use and effects of different laws and policies, concentrates on four different areas of employment law and policy: disability equality, employers’ obligations towards employees with disabilities and / or reduced working capacity, employment promotion for unemployed persons with disabilities and income-replacement for persons with disabilities outside the labour market. The comparison shows that the main difference between Danish and Swedish disability employment law lies in level of employers’ obligations under employment protection law and health and safety law. It is argued that this difference leads to more inclusive general structures on the labour market in Sweden and constitutes the main explanation for the extreme difference in employment rates for persons with disabilities and reduced working capacity in Denmark and Sweden.

Carbon Capture and Storage

Emerging Legal and Regulatory Issues

(Hart Publishing. 2011)

Edited by Ian Havercroft, Richard Macrory and Richard Stewart

Carbon Capture and Storage is increasingly viewed as one of the most significant ways of dealing with green house gas emissions. Critical to realising its potential will be the design of effective legal regimes at national and international level that can handle effectively the challenges raised but without stifling a new technology of potential great public benefit. These include long-term liability for storage, regulation of transport, the treatment of stored carbon under emissions trading regimes, issues of property ownership, and increasingly the sensitivities of handling the public engagement and perception. With the first demonstration plants on the horizon, the last few years have already seen some remarkable legal developments, particularly in Australia, the European Union, and the United States. This important book brings together some of the world’s leading practitioners and scholars working in the field to provide a critical assessment of progress to date. Chapters cover developments in international law, as well as the European Union, North America, and Australia, with perspectives from China and India. Finance and questions of public perception and participation receive particular attention. Throughout the study, authors consider significant trends, critically evaluate progress to date, and identify key legal gaps and obstacles that still need to be addressed. Carbon Capture and Storage will be essential reading for lawyers, policy-makers, and decision-makers in industry involved in climate change policy and law.

Labour Law, Fundamental Rights and Social Europe

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Edited by Mia Ronnmar

This volume, comprising three parts and ten chapters, all of them peer-reviewed essays, arises from the work of the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies. Its focus is on labour and social security law. The chapters, written by distinguished legal researchers associated with Swedish universities, provide insight 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 labour law and social security law research. Within the European Social Model and the European Welfare State, Sweden (and to some degree the other Nordic countries as well) can be said to represent a specific system, as regards both labour law and industrial relations and social security law. In terms of influential comparative typologies or models (naturally ‘flawed’ by a certain element of vagueness and simplification, but also very helpful in analytical and pedagogical respects), Sweden has been described as a representative of, inter alia, a Nordic legal family, a Nordic labour law model, a social-collectivist industrial relations system, a consensual industrial relations system, a social-democratic welfare state regime, a Scandinavian social security law system (a ‘sub-group’ of the Beveridge system), and a coordinated market economy. But since 1995 EU law and European law perspectives have been extensively integrated into existing Swedish labour and social security law, and the chapters in this book go a long way in illustrating the far-reaching and multifaceted ways in which Swedish law has been ‘Europeanised’.

Children’s Socio-Economic Rights, Democracy and the Courts

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Aoife Nolan

Despite the significant growth in academic interest in both children’s rights and socio-economic rights over the last two decades, children’s socio-economic rights are a comparatively neglected area. This is particularly true with regard to the role of the courts in the enforcement of such rights. Aoife Nolan’s book remedies this omission, focussing on the circumstances in which the courts can and should give effect to the socio-economic rights of children. The arguments put forward are located within the context of, and develop, long-standing debates in constitutional law, democratic theory and human rights. The claims made by the author are supported and illustrated by concrete examples of judicial enforcement of children’s socio-economic rights from a variety of jurisdictions. The work is thus rooted in both theory and practice. The author brings together and addresses a wide range of issues that have never previously been considered together in book form. These include children’s socio-economic rights; children as citizens and their position in relation to democratic decision-making processes; the implications of children and their rights for democratic and constitutional theory; the role of the courts in ensuring the enforcement of children’s rights; and the debates surrounding the litigation and adjudication of socio-economic rights. This book thus represents a major original contribution to the existing scholarship in a range of areas including human rights, legal and political theory and constitutional law.

Mediating International Child Abduction Cases

The Hague Convention

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Sarah Vigers

There is growing enthusiasm for the use of mediation to seek to resolve cases arising under the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (the Convention). However, despite being endorsed by the conclusions of meetings of experts, judicial comment and even legislative changes, there have been relatively few cases where mediation has played a significant role. It is suggested that the reason underlying this dichotomy between the widespread support for the use of mediation and the current limited practice is that there are several key questions regarding the use of mediation in the context of the Convention which remain to be answered. Specifically: what is meant by Convention mediation? How can a mediation process fit within the constraints of the Convention? And why offer mediation in Convention cases given the existing legal framework? This book addresses these questions and in so doing seeks to encourage a movement from enthusiasm about the use of mediation in the Convention context to greater practice.

A History of the Laws of War: Volume 2

The Customs and Laws of War with Regards to Civilians in Times of Conflict

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Alexander Gillespie

This second book on civilians examines four different topics. The first topic deals with the targetting of civilians in times of war. This discussion is one which has been largely governed by the developments of technologies which have allowed projectiles to be discharged over ever greater areas, and attempts to prevent their indiscriminate utilisation have struggled to keep pace. The second topic concerns the  destruction of the natural environment, with particular regard to the utilisation of starvation as a method of warfare, and unlike the first topic, this one has rarely changed over thousands of years, although contemporary practices are beginning to represent a clear break from tradition. The third topic is concerned with  the long standing problems of  civilians under the occupation of opposing military forces, where the practices of genocide, collective punishments and/or reprisals, and rape have occurred. The final topic in this volume is about the  theft or destruction of the property of the enemy, in terms of either pillage or the intentional devastation of the cultural property of the opposition.

A History of the Laws of War: Volume 3

The Customs and Laws of War with Regards to Arms Control

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Alexander Gillespie

This third volume deals with the question of the control of weaponry, from the Bronze Age to the Nuclear Age. In doing so, it divides into two parts: namely, conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction. The examination of the history of arms control of conventional weapons begins with the control of weaponry so that one side could achieve a military advantage over another. This pattern, which only began to change centuries after the advent of gunpowder, was later supplemented by ideals to control types of conventional weapons because their impacts upon opposing combatants were inhumane. By the late twentieth century, the concerns over inhumane conventional weapons, were being supplemented by concerns over indiscriminate conventional weapons.  The focus on indiscriminate weapons, when applied on a mass scale, is the focus of the second part of the volume. Weapons of Mass Destruction are primarily weapons of the latter half of the twentieth century. Although both chemical and biological warfare have long historical lineages, it was only after the Second World War, that technological developments meant that these weapons could be applied to cause large-scale damage to non-combatants. Nuclear weapons are a truly modern invention. Despite being the newest Weapon of Mass Destruction, they are also the weapon of which most international attention has been applied, although the frameworks by which they were contained in the last century, appear inadequate to address the needs of current times.

(Mohr Siebeck, 2011)

Indra Spiecker gen. Döhmann

Published in German. Government Decisions under Uncertainty. Public decision making is increasingly facing conditions of uncertainty, especially if analyzed under a governance perspective.

She employs an intra-disciplinary approach, including insights from neighbouring sciences such as economy and behavioural sciences.

Constitutional Identity

(Harvard University Press, 2011)

In Constitutional Identity, Gary Jeffrey Jacobsohn argues that a constitution acquires an identity through experience—from a mix of the political aspirations and commitments that express a nation’s past and the desire to transcend that past. It is changeable but resistant to its own destruction, and manifests itself in various ways, as Jacobsohn shows in examples as far flung as India, Ireland, Israel, and the United States.
