            The right of indigenous peoples to Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) in relation to natural resource extraction in their territories is a principle that is increasingly recognised by intergovernmental organizations, international bodies, conventions and international human r...ights law as well as in the domestic law of some States. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the status of Free Prior and Informed Consent under international human rights law, considering the main controversies, obstacles and challenges associated with its recognition and implementation. The book examines the relationship between Free Prior and Informed Consent and territorial, resource and governance rights. The historical basis for FPIC is considered as well as the legitimacy of the dominant doctrines of exclusive State ownership of subsoil resources. The book argues that FPIC constitutes an emerging norm of international law with a tipping point having been reached in terms of the requirement's recognition, both within and beyond the human rights regime. It draws on emerging jurisprudence from around the world, as well as evolving industry standards and policies, to illustrate the growing recognition of the fact that respect for the consent requirement is fundamental to securing indigenous peoples' self-governance and territorial rights.

            Antarctic Security in the Twenty-First Century: Legal and Policy Perspectives
              

            Antarctic Security in the Twenty-First Century: Legal and Policy Perspectives (Hardback)

            The Antarctic Treaty (1959) was adopted for the purpose of bringing peace and stability to the region and to facilitate cooperation in scientific research conducted on and around the continent. One of the prime motivators in the conclusion of the Antarctic Treaty was security, as... considerable tension existed over Antarctica with the overlapping claims of Argentina, Chile and the United Kingdom on the Antarctic Peninsula. More generally, the two Cold War protagonists -- the (then) USSR and US -- had a significant presence on the continent and had reserved their rights to make a territorial claim to the continent. Therefore the Antarctic Treaty, founded on the principles of peaceful purposes, de-militarisation, non-nuclearalisation and the promotion of scientific research, created a new security construct for Antarctica. It is now been over fifty years since the Antarctic Treaty's entry into force, nevertheless, security continues to both drive and shape the legal and policy regime which applies to Antarctica. This book explores a wide range of Antarctic and Southern Ocean issues through the lens of security. The contributions to this volume engage with a security discourse which has expanded beyond the traditional military domain to include notions of economic security, environmental security, food security, bio-security, heath security and human security. The chapters consider topics such as the implications for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean of the growing strategic competition between the rising powers of Asia, the possible effects of climate change on the authority, legitimacy and effectiveness of the Antarctic Treaty System, and the shift from 'strategic' security to 'human' security and its potential consequences for the Antarctic treaty regime. This book will provide a contemporary and innovative approach to Antarctic issues which will be of interest to scholars of international law, international relations, security studies, political scientists, geographe

            The Rise of Tamil Separatism in Sri Lanka: From Communalism to Secession (Hardback)

            There are more than one hundred and twenty five civil wars, armed secessionist movements and minority uprisings in the world today. In many of these instances minority groups in nation states have become disillusioned with the ability or will of the majority to accommodate proper...ly their political and cultural aspirations and have come to believe that the only solution lies in political self-determination which often implies secession. While, nation states remain opposed to the dismembering of their territorial integrity and resist any diminution of sovereignty. This book explores the relationship between minority rights, self-determination, secession and irredentism by contextualising these issues in a detailed case study of the rise of Tamil separatism in Sri Lanka, locating the struggles of the Tamil minority in the context of the international law of self-determination. This book shows how in Sri Lanka communalism hardened into secession and how violence became the means of achieving that end. Focusing on the legal and human rights arguments for secession by the Tamil community of the North and East of the island of Sri Lanka the book demonstrates how the language of international law and international human rights played a major role in the development of the arguments for secession. Through a close examination of the case of the Tamil's secessionist movement the book presents valuable insights into why the modern nation states finds itself threatened by separatist claims and by bids for independence based on ethnicity.

            The Antarctic Treaty (1959) was adopted for the purpose of bringing peace and stability to Antarctica and to facilitate cooperation in scientific research conducted on and around the continent. It has now been over fifty years since the signing of the treaty, nevertheless securit...y continues to drive and shape the laws and policy regime which governs the region. Antarctic Security in the Twenty-First Century: Legal and Policy Perspectives assess Antarctic security from multiple legal and policy perspectives. This book reviews the existing security construct in Antarctica, critically assesses its status in the early part of the Twenty-First century and considers how Antarctic security may be viewed in both the immediate and distant future. The book assesses emerging new security threats, including the impact of climate change and the issues arising from increased human traffic to Antarctica by scientists, tourists, and mariners. The authors call into question whether the existing Antarctic security construct framed around the Antarctic Treaty remains viable, or whether new Antarctic paradigms are necessary for the future governance of the region. The contributions to this volume engage with a security discourse which has expanded beyond the traditional military domain to include notions of security from the perspective of economics, the environment and bio-security. This book provides a contemporary and innovative approach to Antarctic issues which will be of interest to scholars of international law, international relations, security studies and political science as well as policy makers, lawyers and government officials with an interest in the region.

            International Law and Boundary Disputes in Africa

            International Law and Boundary Disputes in Africa (Paperback)

            Africa has experienced a number of territorial disputes over land and maritime boundaries, due in part to its colonial and post-colonial history. This book explores the legal, political, and historical nature of disputes over territory in the African continent, and critiques the ...content and application of contemporary International law to the resolution of African territorial and border disputes. Drawing on central concepts of public international law such as sovereignty and jurisdiction, and socio-political concepts such as colonialism, ethnicity, nationality and self-determination, this book interrogates the intimate connection that peoples and nations have to territory and the severe disputes these may lead to. Gbenga Oduntan identifies the major principles of law at play in relation to territorial, and boundary disputes, and argues that the predominant use of foreign based adjudicatory mechanisms in attempting to deal with African boundary disputes alienates those institutions and mechanisms from African people and can contribute to the recurrence of conflicts and disputes in and among African territories. He suggests that the understanding and application of multidisciplinary dispute resolution mechanisms and strategies can allow for a more holistic and effective treatment of boundary disputes. As an in depth study into the legal, socio-political and anthropological mechanisms involved in the understanding of territorial boundaries, and a unique synthesis of an African jurisprudence of international boundaries law, this book will be of great use and interest to students, researchers, and practitioners in African and Public International Law, International Relations, and decision-makers in need of better understanding the settlement of disputes over territorial boundaries in both Africa and the wider world.
