(Ashgate, Feb. 2012)

This volume considers the problem of international terrorism from an international legal perspective. The articles address the issue of how to reach agreement on what constitutes terrorism as well as the range of responses to terrorism, from criminalising and punishing various manifestations of terrorism, to more coercive, executive-led responses. Finally, the articles consider the role of the Security Council in developing legal regimes to combat terrorism.

(Ashgate, Feb. 2012)

This volume features a selection of the best scholarship on international law as it is relevant to the proliferationof weapons of mass destruction.

The role, authority and track record of the UN Security Council in this area is also evaluated.

……

The Library of Essays in International Humanitaria n Law

(6 Volumes)

Series Editors: Michael N. Schmitt, US Naval War

College, USA and Wolff Heintschel von Heinegg,

Europa-Universitat Viadrina, Germany

(Ashgate, 2012)

This series is the product of a three-year project to brin together the most significant works in the field of humanitarian law published in the last century. In the process of selection, the editors have consulted scores of humanitarian law experts worldwide and conducted exhaustive literature surveys. The resulting library consists of six volumes arranged topically: development and principles; scope and application; conduct of hostilities; detention and occupation; and implementation and enforcement. The selected essays have either become classics of humanitarian law over time or are proving especially influential as this body of law develops in the 21st Century. A special effort has been made to identify and include works that have been ‘forgotten’ over time, but which merit rediscovery in the light of contemporary trends in warfare and other military operations. Taken together the collection demonstrates three points. Firstly, the work of prior generations of humanitarian lawyers has relevance for contemporary debates as many topics which today’s humanitarian lawyers are struggling with have been addressed by previous generations. Second, although sometimes criticized as vague and imprecise, humanitarian law can be subjected to rigorous analysis that clarifies its intent and scope. Finally, humanitarian law is the product of a carefully crafted, and very fragile, balance between two competing concerns – military necessity and humanitarian considerations – and if this balance is thrown askew the law necessarily suffers and may eventually become inoperable.

Transnational Governance:

Emerging Models of Global Legal Regulation

Edited by Michael Head, Scott Mann and Simon Kozlina

(Ashgate, 2012)

As globalisation continues to spread and evolve, so nation-states attempt to govern financialization, tax evasion, corruption, terrorism, civil and military conflicts and environmental dangers, social polarization and the complexities in human rights implementation, by institutional and transnational means. This volume discusses these issues from different legal perspectives and highlights the challenges of governing human activity in an age of remarkable interconnectedness.

‘Integration through Law’ Revisited:

The Making of the European Polity

Edited by Daniel Augenstein

(Ashgate, 2012)

This volume provides a valuable reference for scholars in the field of European integration studies and European legal and political theory. The contributors revisit one of the first academic projects to conceptualise and study European legal integration – the early ‘Integration through Law’ School. On this basis, they consider continuities and discontinuities in the underlying social and political landscape which the law is to integrate (the ‘object’ of integration), the forms and capacities of the law itself (the ‘agent’ of integration), and the way these two dimensions reflect on each other.

……

Activating Human Rights and Peace:

Theories, Practices and Contexts

Edited by GOH Bee Chen, Baden Offord, and Rob Garbutt

(Ashgate, 2012)

Activating Human Rights and Peace argues that we need to appreciate that cultivating a human rights and peace consciousness is choice-less. There is a moral imperative to engender and sustain an ethical praxis that is motivated by a concern and commitment for how we live with each other. In doing so, we need to link experience substantively to education and vision, as these are mutually sustaining.

……

Constitutional Paradigms and the Stability of States

Noel Cox

(Ashgate, 2012)

This book examines the influence of constitutional legal paradigms upon the political stability and viability of states. It contributes to the literature in the field by focussing on how constitutional flexibility may have led to the rise of ‘successful’ states and to the decline of ‘unsuccessful’ states, by promoting stability. Divided into two parts, the book considers theories of the rise and fall of civilisations and individual states, explains the concept of hard and soft constitutions and applies this concept to different types of state models. A series of international case studies in the second part of the book identifies the key dynamics in legal political and economic history and includes the UK, US, New Zealand and Eastern Europe.

……

The Global Anti-Money Laundering Regulatory Landscape in Less Developed Countries

Norman Mugarura

(Ashgate, 2012)

Examining the challenges of using the global anti-money laundering (AML) framework in an uneven global regulatory landscape, this book discusses the difficulties of relating de-regulation, liberalization and conflict of laws to the dynamics of the market economy and demonstrates how the global environment engenders money laundering. It suggests that corruption, general systemic failure and lack of infrastructural capacity in some developing economies are hampering the implementation of laws and regulations.

……

Democracies and the Shock of War:

The Law as a Battlefield

Marc Cogen

(Ashgate, 2012)

Over the course of the twentieth-century, democracies demonstrated an uncanny ability to win wars when their survival was at stake. As this book makes clear, this success cannot be explained merely by superior military equipment or a particular geographical advantage. Instead, it is argued that the legal frameworks imbedded in democratic societies offered them a fundamental advantage over their more politically restricted rivals.

The Human Right to Water
Significance, Legal Status and Implications for Water Allocation

Inga T Winkler

(Hart, 2012)

The United Nations General Assembly and the Human Rights Council recognised the human right to water in 2010. This formal recognition has put the issue high on the international agenda, but by itself leaves many questions unanswered. This book addresses this gap and clarifies the legal status and meaning of the right to water through a detailed analysis of its legal foundations, legal nature, normative content and corresponding State obligations. The human right to water has wide-ranging implications for the distribution of water.

……

Rights in Divided Societies
Edited by Colin Harvey and Alex Schwartz

(Hart, 2012)

This collection examines the role and value of domestic rights instruments in divided and post-conflict societies, approaching the subject from a comparative and theoretical perspective. Societies emerging from violent conflict often opt for a bill of rights as part of a wider package of constitutional reform. Where conflict is fuelled by longstanding ethno-national divisions, these divisions are often addressed through group-differentiated rights. Recent constitutional settlements have highlighted the difficulties in drafting a bill of rights in divided/post-conflict societies, where the aim of promoting unity is frequently in tension with the need to accommodate difference.

……

Confronting Homophobia in Europe:
Social and Legal Perspectives

Edited by Luca Trappolin, Alessandro Gasparini and Robert Wintemute

(Hart, 2012)

Homophobia exists in many different forms across Europe. Member States offer uneven levels of legal protection for lesbian and gay rights; at the same time the social meanings and practices relating to homosexuality are culturally distinct and intersect in complex ways with gender, class and ethnicity in different national contexts. The essays in this volume illustrate the findings of a European project on homophobia and fundamental rights in which sociologists and legal experts have analysed the position in four Member States: Italy, Slovenia, Hungary and the UK.

……

Equality Bodies in Europe
Impact and Effectiveness

Edited by Caroline Gooding, Anna Lawson and Bob Niven

(Hart, 2012)

Despite being required by EU law, the role, structure and resourcing of equality bodies are surrounded by debate and controversy. These debates have been intensified by economic pressures which have caused governments throughout Europe to crutinize public spending, including on equality bodies, with a view to making efficiency savings or cuts. At the same time, responses to economic recession threaten to increase inequality and thus to increase the need for vigilant and effective equality bodies. This book provides a space for the detailed exploration of issues such as these. Given the current concern with achieving value for money, questions relating to the impact and effectiveness of equality bodies are given particular prominence.

……

The Nordic Saami Convention and the Property Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Edited by Nigel Bankes and Timo Koivurova

(Hart, 2012)

In 2005 an expert group representing the governments of Norway, Sweden and Finland and the Saami parliaments of these countries agreed upon a draft text of a Nordic Saami Convention. Key parts of the text deal with the recognition of Saami land and resource rights. More recently the three governments have embarked on negotiations to move from this draft text to a final convention that can be adopted and ratified by all three countries. Negotiations commenced in the Spring of 2011 and should be completed within five years. This collection of essays explores the national and international dimensions of the Convention which ecognizes the Saami as one people divided by international boundaries.

The European Convention on Human Rights
A Commentary

Edited by Christoph Grabenwarter

(Hart, 2012)

The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) entered into force on September 3, 1953 with binding effect on all Member States of the Council of Europe. It grants the people of Europe a number of fundamental rights and freedoms (right to life, prohibition of torture, prohibition of slavery and forced labour, right to liberty and security, right to a fair trial, no punishment without law, right to respect for private and family life, freedom of thought, conscience and religion, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly and association, right to marry, right to an effective remedy, prohibition of discrimination) plus some more by additional protocols to the Convention

The Legal Protection of Foreign Investment
A Comparative Study

Edited by Wenhua Shan

(Hart, 2012)

The law of foreign investment is at a crossroads. In the wake of an unprecedented global financial crisis and a sharp surge of investment arbitration cases states around the world are reflecting on the pros and cons of the current liberal investment regime and exploring new ways ahead. This book brings together leading investment lawyers from more than 20 main jurisdictions of the world to tackle the challenge of producing a first comparative study of foreign investment law. Based on the General and National Reports presented at the “Protection of Foreign Investment” Session at the 18th International Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law (Washington DC, July 2010), the book is a unique resource for investment lawyers.

……

Tribes, Land, and the Environment

Edited by Sarah Krakoff, University of Colorado Law

(Ashgate, May 2012)

This book brings together diverse essays by leading Indian law scholars across the disciplines of indigenous and environmental law. The chapters reveal the difficulties encountered by Native American tribes in attempts to establish their own environmental standards within federal Indian law and environmental law structures. Gleaning new insights from a focus on tribal land and property law, the collection studies the practice of tribal sovereignty as experienced by Indians and non-Indians, with an emphasis on the development and regulatory challenges these tribes face in the wake of climate change.

Europe and Extraterritorial Asylum

Maarten den Heijer

(Hart Publishing, 2012)

Increasingly, European and other Western states have sought to control the movement of refugees outside their borders. To do this, states have adopted a variety of measures – including carrier sanctions, interception of migrants at sea, posting of immigration officers in foreign countries and external processing of asylum-seekers. This book focuses on the legal implications of external mechanisms of migration control for the protection of refugees and irregular migrants. The book explores how refugee and human rights law has responded to the new measures adopted by states, and how states have sought cooperation with other actors in the context of migration control. The book defends the thesis that when European states attempt to control the movement of migrants outside their territories, they remain responsible under international law for protecting the rights of refugees as well as their general human rights. It also identifies how EU law governs and constrains the various types of pre-border migration enforcement employed by EU Member States, and examines how unfolding practices of external migration control conform with international law.

Multilevel Regulation of Military and Security Contractors:

The Interplay between International, European and Domestic Norms

Edited by Christine Bakker and Mirko Sossai

(Hart Publishing, 2012)

The outsourcing of military and security services is the object of intense legal debate. States employ private military and security companies (PMSCs) to perform functions previously exercised by regular armed forces, and increasingly international organisations, NGOs and business corporations do the same to provide security, particularly in crisis situations. Much of the public attention on PMSCs has been in response to incidents in which PMSC employees have been accused of violating international humanitarian law. Therefore initiatives have been launched to introduce uniform international standards amidst what is currently very uneven national regulation. This book analyses and discusses the interplay between international, European, and domestic regulatory measures in the field of PMSCs. It presents a comprehensive assessment of the existing domestic legislation in EU Member States and relevant Third States, and identifies implications for future international regulation. The book also addresses the crucial questions whether and how the EU can potentially play a more active future role in the regulation of PMSCs to ensure compliance with human rights and international humanitarian law.

The Right to Development and International Economic Law: Legal and Moral Dimensions

Isabella D Bunn

(Hart Publishing, 2012)

This book examines the legal and moral foundations of the right to development, addressing the major issues. It then considers the right to development in the global economy, noting the challenges of globalization and identifying key principles such as differential treatment of developing countries, participation and accountability. It relates the right to broad objectives such as the Millennium Development Goals, the human rights-based approach to development, and environmental sustainability. Implications for international economic law and policy in the areas of trade, development finance and corporate responsibility are assessed. The conclusion looks to the legal and ethical contributions – and limitations – of the right to development in this new context. With an academic and professional background in international law, human rights and moral theology, the author brings a unique interdisciplinary focus to this timely project.

Invisible War

Gordon, Joy
(Harvard Univ. Press, April 2012)

The economic sanctions imposed on Iraq from 1990 to 2003 were the most comprehensive and devastating of any established in the name of international governance. In a sharp indictment of U.S. policy, Joy Gordon examines the key role the nation played in shaping the sanctions, whose harsh strictures resulted in part from U.S. definitions of “dual use” and “weapons of mass destruction,” and claims that everything from water pipes to child vaccines could produce weapons. Provocative and sure to stir debate, this book lays bare the damage that can be done by unchecked power in our institutions of international governance.

……

Environmental Governance And Sustainability
(Edward Elgar, 2012)

A unique publication that examines emerging and cutting-edge environmental issues from no less than seven countries including Africa and China. These issues are examined mainly from a trans-disciplinary environmental governance perspective that includes law, ecology, economics, policy and management. The contributors to the book include some exceptional young scholars. They together with other contributors, who are distinguished environmental legal experts, have advanced the scholarship of environmental governance.’ – Koh Kheng-Lian, National University of Singapore

……

Making Fishery Agreements Work
Geir Hønneland

(Edward Elgar, 2012)

‘Environmental governance is not just a matter of laying down clear rules and regulations and then finding ways to enforce them. Developing the idea of “post-agreement bargaining” and drawing on his exceptional knowledge of the world-class fisheries of the Barents Sea, Geir Hønneland illuminates the ongoing processes of interpretation, mutual accommodation, and adjustment to changing circumstances that play an essential role in making environmental regimes work.’
– Oran Young, University of California, Santa Barbara, US

Genetic Resources And Traditional Knowledge:

Case Studies and Conflicting Interests

Tania Bubela , E. R. Gold

(Edward Elgar, 2012)

This fascinating study describes efforts to define and protect traditional knowledge and the associated issues of access to genetic resources, from the negotiation of the Convention on Biological Diversity to The Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Nagoya Protocol. Drawing on the expertise of local specialists from around the globe, the chapters judiciously mix theory and empirical evidence to provide a deep and convincing understanding of traditional knowledge, innovation, access to genetic resources, and benefit sharing.
