International Communications
The International Telecommunication Union and the Universal Postal Union

(Ashgate, Nov. 2011)

Francis Lyall

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Universal Postal Union (UPU) are the two major international organisations that are involved in the regulation of international communications. The ITU deals with electronic communications including radio. The UPU deals with mail. As such, both organisations are of major importance in modern life. This volume provides an up-to-date analysis of their development from inception to the present as they have responded to technical and political change. It also makes suggestions for the future.  The volume will be an invaluable resource for researchers and students, policy-makers, government officials and administrators, and legal staff in telecommunication and postal organisations.

Criminal Law Reform and Transitional Justice
Human Rights Perspectives for Sudan

(Ashgate, Nov. 2011)

Edited by Lutz Oette, SOAS, University of London, UK

Sudan has been undergoing profound changes characterized by an uncertain transition from conflict to post-conflict society and the separation of the country in the midst of ongoing human rights concerns. This book examines the nature, policy aspects and interrelationship of Sudanese criminal law and law reform in this context, situating developments 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. The book provides valuable lessons on how relevant standards and experiences can be used to inform criminal law reform in Sudan. It also considers what broader lessons can be drawn for reform initiatives in other societies facing similar challenges. This includes the type of violations that need to be addressed in reforms as a prerequisite for enhanced human rights protection, challenges experienced in this regard, and the contribution of civil society in this process.

Developing Countries
An Analytical Perspective

(Ashgate, Nov. 2011)

Mohamed A.M. Ismail, Conseil d’Etat, Egypt

This book scrutinizes the new legal nature and stipulations of International Public Works Agreements and provides an in-depth analysis of new forms of infrastructure agreements which have been created in developing countries, such as PPPs. The volume also examines the direct impact of the new legal environment upon infrastructure transactions such as dispute resolutions and ADR mechanisms, in particular, arbitration. It provides an analytical perspective on international public works agreements in developing states in the light of ICC rules of arbitration and FIDIC forms of contracts. As globalization significantly influences le contrat administratif in civil law legal culture, this book examines the legal cultures of civil and common law from a comparative perspective. The author argues that harmonization and integration of the two cultures, in infrastructure agreements, are the way forward.

The Hidden Alternative: Co-operative Values, Past, Present and Future

(UNU Press, Co-publication with Manchester University Press, Jan. 2012)

Edited by Anthony Webster, Alyson Brown, David Stewart, John K. Walton and Linda Shaw

The proclamation by the United Nations that 2012 would be the International Year of Co-operatives represents a milestone in the history of the international co-operative movement. It reflects the growth and renewal of co-operatives globally during the past decade and a half, whether the focus is on financial co-operatives in Britain or producer co-operatives across Africa.

Just Transitions: Explorations of Sustainability in an Unfair World

(UNU Press, Co-publication with the University of Cape Town (UCT) Press, Jan. 2012)

Mark Swilling and Eve Annecke

Current economic growth strategies around the world are rapidly depleting the natural resources and eco-system services that we depend on. Just Transitions gives a comprehensive overview of these global challenges from a global South perspective.

EU Enlargement and Turkish Labour Migration

(UNU Press, March 2012)

Gönül Oğuz

“It is surprising, given the longevity of migrant flows from Turkey into Western Europe, that there has so far been no similar text and the author is to be congratulated on taking on the job.” John Salt, Emeritus Professor of Geography and Director of the Migration Research Unit, University College London.

……

Gender-Based Explosions: The Nexus between Muslim Masculinities, Jihadist Islamism and Terrorism

(UNU Press, April 2012)

Maleeha Aslam

Raewyn Connell, author of Masculinities and Gender: In World Perspective, writes “This well-researched and morally-engaged book is an important contribution to gender studies and to understanding the contemporary Muslim world. Maleeha Aslam has conducted careful and imaginative research, and has a powerful argument on the relevance of masculinity dynamics to Islamist militancy.”
