The United Nations, the Evolution of Global Values and International Law

(Intersentia, October 2011)

Otto Spijkers

In this book, Otto Spijkers describes how moral values have determined the founding of the United Nations Organization in 1945 and the evolution of its purposes, principles and policies since then. A detailed examination of the proceedings of the United Nations Conference on International Organization in San Francisco demonstrates that the drafting of the United Nations Charter was significantly influenced by global moral values, i.e. globally shared beliefs distinguishing right from wrong, good from bad, and the current from a preferable state-of-the-world. A common desire to eradicate war, poverty, inhuman treatment, and to halt the exploitation of peoples, has led to an affirmation of the values of peace and security, social progress and development, human dignity and the self-determination of all peoples. All these values ended up in the UN Charter. The book further analyzes how the United Nations, and especially its General Assembly, has continued to influence the maturing of global morality through contributions to the values-debate, and to the translation of these values into the language of international law, including the law on the use of force, sustainable development, human rights and the right to self-determination.

Ronald Wolf

International lawyers dealing with joint ventures face complex legal issues on a daily basis. The necessary documentation and clauses have been developed from the regular practices of international lawyers all over the world. In this substantially revised third edition of a popular text, an American lawyer with over 40 years’ experience in a European capital provides in clear, straightforward simple language, with multiple forms and clauses, the practice and indispensable theory necessary to ensure a successful orientation for the international practitioner.

(Oxford University Press, October 2011)

Intellectual Property, Competition Law and Economics in Asia

(Hart Publishing, October 2011)

Ian McEwin (ed)

This book is the result of a conference held in Singapore in September 2009, which brought together distinguished lawyers and economists to examine the differences and similarities in the intersection between intellectual property and competition laws in Asia. The prime focus was how best to balance these laws to improve economic welfare. To set the scene, the book looks at the intersection of intellectual property and competition laws in the US. Next, country chapters on Asia are presented.

Mediating International Child Abduction Cases: The Hague Convention

(Hart Publishing, October 2011)

Sarah Vigers

There has been growing enthusiasm for the use of mediation to seek a resolution for cases arising under the Hague Convention of October 25, 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. However, despite being endorsed by the conclusions of experts, judicial comment, and even legislative changes, there have been relatively few cases where mediation has played a significant role. It has been 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. This book looks at these questions.

Indigenous Rights Entwined with Nature Conservation

(Intersentia, October 2011)

Ellen Desmet

In recent years, a new paradigm of nature conservation, with respect for the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, was put forward. Two questions arise: What does this policy shift exactly mean in terms of international human rights law? And how has this new paradigm been translated at the national and local level? The book is distinctive in that it provides a comprehensive review of international human rights law in the context of nature conservation. It also offers a critical appraisal of Peruvian nature conservation legislation in relation to the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities. Additionally, it includes a thorough analysis of the interaction between three levels of regulation: the international level of human rights, the national level of Peru, and the local level of a specific protected area (the Gueppi Reserved Zone).

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

(Intersentia, 2011)

Marc Fallom, Patrick Kinsch and Christian Kohler

During the last 20 years, private international law has been significantly transformed in Europe. Since its creation in 1991, the European Group for Private International Law (EGPIL, also commonly known as GEDIP) sustained this evolution. Composed of specialists in private international law who are also interested in European law, the GEDIP focuses on the interaction between these two fields of research. The work of the GEDIP focuses on 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.

Handbook on International Sports Law

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by James A R Nafziger, Thomas B Stoel, and Stephen F Ross

This Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of essays by leading scholars and practitioners in the burgeoning field of international sports law. The authors address significant legal issues on two gradually converging tracks: the mainstream institutional framework of the law, primarily the International Olympic Committee, international sports federations, regional and national sports authority, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport; and the commercial sports industry. Topics include the institutional structure; fundamental issues, legal principles and decisions within those institutions; mediation, arbitration and litigation of disputes; doping, gambling and the expanding use of technology in competition; athlete eligibility requirements; discrimination; and protection of athletes. The book also covers a broad range of commercial issues related to competition law and labor markets; media, image, and intellectual property rights; event sponsorships; and players & apos; agents. Comparative analyses of young sports models and practices in North America, Europe and elsewhere supplement the general theme of international sports law.

Networks, Complexity and Internet Regulation

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Andres Guadamuz

Complexity theory as a subject has gained increasing prominence across numerous disciplines including physics, biology, sociology and economics. Large interconnected systems such as the Internet display a number of inherent architectural characteristics deeming them well-suited to the study of complex dynamic networks. This important book uses various network science-based tools to explore the contentious issue of Internet regulation. The author demonstrates that the Internet as a global communications space is a self-organising entity that has proven problematic for regulators, and that in order to regulate cyberspace, one must first understand how the network operates. In order to illustrate how the world wide web operates, Andres Guadamuz presents case studies in copyright policy, peer-production and cyber crime, providing in-depth analyses of the challenges posed by the Internet’s complex dynamic networks. The book concludes that regulatory efforts that ignore empirical evidence will ultimately encounter serious problems.

Chinese Intellectual Property and Technology Laws

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by Rohan Kariyawasam and Helen Hui

‘The rapid evolution of China from an “emerging” to a mature intellectual property jurisdiction has far-reaching implications for the law, policy and practice of IP, and their links with competition and technology law. Produced in the year China rose to fourth rank globally as user of the international patent system, this volume is an invaluable guide for the policymaker, the analyst and the practitioner alike, setting a thorough exposition of the substantive law and its application within a broader policy context, and offering a comprehensive, timely overview of an IP system just at the time it begins to assume central significance on the world stage.’

Families, Care-Giving and Paid Work

Challenging Labour Law in the 21st Century

 (Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by Nicole Busby, and Grace James

This unique selection of chapters brings together researchers from a variety of academic disciplines to explore aspects of law’s engagement with working families. It connects academic debate with policy proposals through an integrated set of approaches and perspectives. Families, Care-giving and Paid Work offers an original approach to a very topical area. Not only does it consider the limitations of law in relation to the regulation of care-giving and workplace relationships, but it is premised upon a re-consideration of law’s potential and engages with suggested strategies for bringing about long-term social change.

Code Wars

10 Years of P2P Software Litigation

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Rebecca Giblin

Code Wars recounts the legal and technological history of the first decade of the P2P file sharing era, focusing on the innovative and anarchic ways in which P2P technologies evolved in response to decisions reached by courts with regard to their predecessors.  With reference to US, UK, Canadian and Australian secondary liability regimes, this insightful book develops a compelling new theory to explain why a decade of ostensibly successful litigation failed to reduce the number, variety or availability of P2P file sharing applications – and highlights ways the law might need to change if it is to have any meaningful effect in future.

Before and After the Economic Crisis

What Implications for the ‘European Social Model’?

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by Marie-Ange Moreau

This timely book casts new light on the key issues arising from the contentious debate around the future of the European Social Model. Marie-Ange Moreau brings together leading experts to provide a thorough and well-informed response to the recent developments in European social and labour law and policy, in the light of institutional changes. The contributing authors provide unique insights as they evaluate the impact of the enlargement processes, the implications of the Lisbon Treaty, the integration of the Charter into EU law and, crucially, the evaluation of the European evolutions in the context of the economic crisis.

The Elgar Guide to Tax Systems

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by Emilio Albi and Jorge Martinez-Vazquez

Tax systems have changed considerably in the past three decades. These fundamental changes have been the result of economic globalization, new political stances, and also of developments in public finance thought. The chapters in this volume offer a critical review of those changes from the perspectives of tax theory, policy and tax administration practice, and the political economy of taxation. The authors also consider what sort of reforms are worth undertaking in tax policy design, tax administration and enforcement, and the assignment of sub-national taxes. In this volume, renowned public finance scholars analyze the state of taxes in the world, including tax systems in OECD countries as well as the current trends and types of taxation, such as direct versus indirect taxation, personal income tax, corporate income tax, value-added tax and others tried and re-tried all over the world amidst political realities which make public finance – and the institutions used to administer it – of critical importance to emerging and to established economies.

Governing Disasters

The Challenges of Emergency Risk Regulation

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by Alberto Alemanno

Emergency crises have always tested our ability to organise and swiftly execute a coordinated response. Both natural and unnatural disasters pose new questions to which previous experience provides only limited answers. These challenges are arguably greater than ever, in a more globalised world confronted by a truly transnational hazard. This is the first volume that addresses the complexities of the volcanic ash cloud that overshadowed Europe in April 2011, but has subsequently struck again in Australia, Chile and Europe. It does so from a multidisciplinary perspective, drawing upon research from economics, law, sociology and other fields, as well as volcanology and leading expertise in jet engineering. Whilst our knowledge base is wide-ranging, there is a common focus on the practical lessons of the ash cloud crisis both for subsequent eruptions and for emergency risk regulation more generally. Among many other insights Governing Disasters explains why it was that industry and regulators were largely unprepared for a phenomenon about which we were not scientifically ignorant. It concludes that the toolbox of risk regulation should not be expected to provide ready-made solutions but applied flexibly, creatively and with some humility.

Governance and Regulation as Risk Management

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Bridget Hutter

Food safety and hygiene is of critical importance to us all, yet, as periodic food crises in various countries each year show we are all dependent on others in business and public regulation to ensure that the food we consume in the retailing and hospitality sectors is safe. Bridget Hutter considers the understandings of risk and regulation held by those in business and considers the compliance pressures on managers and owners, and how these relate to understandings of risk and uncertainty. Using data from an in-depth case study of the food retail and catering sectors in the UK, the research investigates how business risk management practices are influenced by external pressures such as state regulation, consumers, insurance and the media and by pressures within business. The argument of the book is that food businesses in the UK are generally motivated to manage risk. They realize that good risk management aligns with good business practice. However, there are challenges for an industry that is highly segmented in terms of risk management capacity. The findings have implications for contemporary risk regulation in the increasing number of countries that rely on self-regulation.

Global Governance and the Role of the EU

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Edited by Carlo Secchi and Antonio Villafranca

Two years after the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, economic growth has resurfaced across the world, but with significant variation. This timely book illustrates that although mature economies (the EU in particular) are still confronting sluggish economic performance, emerging markets seem to have fully recovered. It explores the reform of global economic governance after the crisis and, in this context, addresses the role of the EU and its economic prospects for the coming decade.

The expert contributors provide analyses, insights and policy recommendations that match short-term interventions with long-term policies to encourage sustainable, balanced growth within the framework of reformed global economic governance. Focusing on the EU in particular, they indicate and prescribe tools and mechanisms with which to enhance growth potentials in Europe and the Eurozone. The ‘Europe 2020’ objectives are evaluated, including global burden-sharing and trade-related aspects of climate change targets, and US–China relations and the prospects of transatlantic partnership are also explored.

Law Applicable to Copyright

A Comparison of the ALI and CLIP Proposals

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Rita Matulionyte

This book discusses the problems of applicable law in international copyright infringement cases and examines the solutions proposed to them in the recent projects by the American Law Institute (ALI) and the European Max Planck Group for Conflict of Laws and Intellectual Property (CLIP). In particular, the book analyses how the territoriality principle and the lex loci protectionis rule are applied in traditional, broadcasting and online cases in selected European and US jurisdictions. It then evaluates whether the rules on ubiquitous infringement, de minimis, initial ownership and party autonomy, as proposed by ALI and CLIP, address the identified problems.

European Emissions Trading in Practice

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Stefano Clo

This unique and up-to-date book analyses the functioning of the European Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and assesses the extent to which relevant legislation has affected its capacity to promote cost-effective reduction of European carbon emissions. The author investigates whether inefficiency has been caused by both the ETS cap setting procedure and by the ETS relevant allocation rule, as defined by Directive 2003/87/EC. He then considers whether the new Directive 2009/29/EC, which reforms the ETS institutional design, is likely to improve the scheme’s effectiveness by reducing the risk of carbon leakage – which could potentially be a consequence of implementing a unilateral policy across the asymmetric political landscape of Europe.

Criminal Law Reform and Transitional Justice

(Ashgate, 2011)

by Lutz Oette

This book examines the nature, policy aspects and interrelationship of Sudanese criminal law and law reform in the context of an uncertain transition from conflict to post-conflict society. In so doing, it situates current developments in Sudan in the broader debate of international human rights, rule of law and transitional justice. For the first time, Sudanese, national, regional and international experts and practitioners are brought together to share experiences, combining a range of legal and policy perspectives. It also considers what broader lessons can be drawn for reform initiatives in other societies undergoing transitions.

Regulating Marriage Migration into the UK

(Ashgate, 2011)

by Helena Wray

Marriage migration is a controversial and problematic issue in the UK as elsewhere in Europe. This timely analysis is a comprehensive examination of the regulation of marriage migration into the UK. With international relevance, the book uses the analysis to examine the relationship between government priorities and the dynamics of transnational family life. The book is one of the first to scrutinise the control of UK marriage migration after 1997 and explores the dilemmas faced by the post-1997 government in managing this form of migration in a changed domestic and international environment.
