              This text comprises cutting edge research on one of the greatest global challenges: the failure to address systematic economic and social exclusion, and attendant violations of economic and social rights (ESR), as a driver of conflict. The text explores what the UN's obligation t...o maintain international peace and security can mean when it is informed by the requirement to protect and promote ESR, rights that play a crucial role in maintaining international peace and security but which are often overlooked. The book considers the extent to which Security Council mandated peace operations have been informed by human rights and efforts to promote economic and social development. The approach is to analyse the extent to which the Security Council has interacted with the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council as well as other Charter-based mechanisms such as the Human Rights Council, and its predecessor, with particular reference to the role of the Special Procedure Mechanisms. The role of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is also considered. In this way, the text shows that the connection between peace and security and human rights is well recognised by these organs. In addition, the text considers States' ESR obligations stemming from the extraterritorial application of such rights in the context of peace operations. Given that States' obligations stemming from ESR have often been neglected, the book examines how such provision could be improved using ESR-grounded plans reflecting the rights to health, food, water, education, work and life. The text concludes with a call to re-imagine what international peace and security can look like when it is informed by the need to recognise the emergence of post-conflict legal obligations based on broader concepts of international peace and security that draw from ESR. This text will appeal to legal scholars, policy advisors, members of the military, those working in the area of development, NGOs and final year

              How does the court system of California stack up against the one in Cambodia? Just what does a barrister do? And justice for all, every legal system on earth guarantees it, but which ones live up to the credo? And why do others fall short of the mark? This title answers these cri...tical questions.

              This companion provides scholars and upper level students with a comprehensive and authoritative review of current research and thinking about legal pluralism. Leading global experts come together, each presenting a distinctive aspect of legal pluralism, resulting in a book which... offers a state of the art reference resource. The first part includes broadly theoretical perspectives on legal pluralism and addresses whether legal pluralism is a theory, methodology, a tool of analysis, a descriptive or a normative concept, or a mixture of any of these. This part also includes a specific focus on leading theorists who have made a profound contribution to understanding of the field. The second part includes chapters on distinct legal traditions e.g. Jewish law, Western law, Islamic law, Hindu law, Chinese law, etc. and demonstrates how and to what extent these legal traditions are inherently legally plural and how legal pluralism has any purchase for describing, studying or analyzing them. The third part approaches legal pluralism from various jurisdictional positions, via a series of country studies showing how legal pluralism contributes to a better understanding of the functioning of these legal orders. The authors offer a historical approach and discuss the impact of the reception of foreign laws; the role of legal education; the existence of plural court systems and plural bodies of laws. They also discuss key legal formants introduced through religion, state practices, the presence of tribal and ethnic communities and their practices, and settler colonialism.

              Language and Culture in EU Law: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

              Language and Culture in EU Law: Multidisciplinary Perspectives (Paperback)

              Written by distinguished legal and linguistic scholars and practitioners from the EU institutions, the contributions in this volume provide multidisciplinary perspectives on the vital role of language and culture as key forces shaping the dynamics of EU law. The broad spectrum of... topics sheds light on major Europeanization processes at work: the gradual creation of a neutralized EU legal language with uniform concepts, for example, in the DCFR and CESL, and the emergence of a European legal culture. The main focus is on EU multilingual lawmaking, with special emphasis on problems of legal translation and term formation in the multilingual and multicultural European context, including comparative law aspects and an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of translating from a lingua franca. Of equal importance are issues relating to the multilingual interpretation of EU legislation and case law by the national courts and interpretative techniques of the CJEU, as well as the viability of the autonomy of EU legal concepts and the need for the professionalization of court interpreters Union-wide in response to Directive 2010/64/EU. Offering a good mix of theory and practice, this book is intended for scholars, practitioners and students with a special interest in the legal-linguistic aspects of EU law and their impact on old and new Member States and candidate countries as well.

              Environmental crime is one of the most profitable and fastest growing areas of international criminal activity. These types of crime, however, do not always produce an immediate consequence, and the harm may be diffused. As such, the complexity of victimization - in terms of time..., space, impact, and who or what is victimized - is one of the reasons why governments and the enforcement community have trouble in finding suitable and effective responses. This book provides a diverse and provocative array of arguments, critiques and recommendations from leading researchers and scholars in the field of green criminology. The chapters are divided into three main sections: the first part deals with specific characteristics of some of the major types of environmental crime and its perpetrators; the second focuses explicitly on the problem of victimization in cases of environmental crime; and the third addresses the question of how to tackle this problem. Discussing these topics from the point of view of green criminological theory, sociology, law enforcement, community wellbeing, environmental activism and victimology, this book will be of great interest to all those concerned about crime and the environment.

              The Amicus Curiae in International Criminal Justice

              The amicus curiae - or friend of the court - is the main mechanism for actors other than the parties, including civil society actors and States, to participate directly in proceedings in international criminal tribunals. Yet increasing reliance on this mechanism raises a number o...f questions. Are amicus interventions consistent with the inherent structure and purpose of a criminal trial? What impact might they have on the efficiency of trials, fair trial rights and the quality of judicial decision-making? Do amici enhance the representation of different interests in international criminal proceedings? Are amicus submissions actually influencing judicial or other outcomes? Is there a trend towards `non-traditional' uses of the amicus curiae, such as the amicus curiae prosecutor or amici as substitute defence counsel? These questions suggest issues integral to the legitimacy of international criminal trials and institutions, namely: who is able to be represented in proceedings, which actors seek to intervene in trials and why, whether the amicus curiae is an appropriate avenue for certain types of submissions, and what responsibilities might amici hold. This important new book examines the practice of international criminal tribunals and offers suggestions for the role of the amicus curiae before such tribunals.

              Rebellious Jurisprudence: Judicial Dissent and International Law

              Rebellious Jurisprudence is the first attempt to construct a theory of judicial dissent as a matter of general international law. Although dissenting and separate opinions are typically associated with the common law tradition, the right of judges to issue such opinions has been ...recognised and reproduced across most international tribunals. Despite this, until now no attempt has been made to theorise the institutionalisation of judicial dissent in international law and its implications for how international tribunals discharge their functions. This study offers a theory of judicial dissent that addresses its ubiquity in international law, notwithstanding the often-fundamental disagreement between the principal legal cultures as to its effects. Rebellious Jurisprudence explores how insights from social anthropology - specifically ritual theory - supplement conventional accounts of judicial dissent. Whereas existing literature focuses upon 'revolutionary' or 'radical' dissent, this study expands our field of focus to sharpen our understanding of the 'everyday' dissent: the (rebellious) 'institutional dissent'. By revealing how judicial dissent operates, and to what ends, Rebellious Jurisprudence is essential reading for those who regularly engage with judicial dissent by international judges - whether judges, practitioners, scholars or students - who seek to deepen their understanding of, and in turn enhance the accuracy and effectiveness by which they engage with, this burgeoning body of jurisprudential activity.
