            Human Security and Human Rights under International Law: The Protections Offered to Persons Confronting Structural Vulnerability (Paperback)

            By Estrada-Tanck, Dorothy

            Human security provides one of the most important protections; a person-centred axis of freedom from fear, from want and to live with dignity. It is surprising given its centrality to the human experience, that its connection with human rights has not yet been explored in a truly... systematic way. This important new book addresses that gap in the literature by analysing whether human security might provide the tools for an expansive and integrated interpretation of international human rights. The examination takes a two-part approach. Firstly, it evaluates convergences between human security and all human rights - civil, political, economic, social and cultural - and constructs an investigative framework focused on the human security-human rights synergy. It then goes on to explore its practical application in the thematic cores of violence against women and undocumented migrants in the law and case-law of UN, European, Inter-American and African human rights bodies. It takes both a legal and interdisciplinary approach, recognising that human security and its relationship with human rights cuts across disciplinary boundaries. Innovative and rigorous, this is an important contribution to human rights scholarship.

            The Causes of War: Volume II: 1000 CE to 1400 CE
             

            The Causes of War: Volume II: 1000 CE to 1400 CE (Paperback)

            By Gillespie, Alexander

            • RRP: $54.99
            • $54.99
            • To Order

            This is the second volume of a projected five-volume series charting the causes of war from 3000 BCE to the present day, written by a leading international lawyer, and using as its principal materials the documentary history of international law, largely in the form of treaties a...nd the negotiations which led up to them. These volumes seek to show why millions of people, over thousands of years, slew each other. In departing from the various theories put forward by historians, anthropologists and psychologists, Gillespie offers a different taxonomy of the causes of war, focusing on the broader settings of politics, religion, migrations and empire-building. These four contexts were dominant and often overlapping justifications during the first four thousand years of human civilisation, for which written records exist.

            Opinions over the nature of a 'just peace' are divided. In this third output of a major research project on Jus Post Bellum, Stahn, Iverson, and Easterday bring together a team of experts to argue that a just peace is not only related to form and process, but involves 'substantiv...e' justice: a just order, a secure peace, and societal acceptance.
