Environmental Justice

Steve Vanderheiden

Environmental Justice by Steve VanderheidenThis collection of scholarly articles takes as its subject matter discourses on environmental justice.

This collection is an invaluable resource for researchers and scholars in this field given that the multiple theories and analyses of environmental justice are likely to remain central to the ongoing...

Emergency Policy: Volume III

Allan McConnell

Emergency Policy: Volume III by Allan McConnellThis volume of leading scholarly articles addresses the international dynamics of emergency policy and practice.

Non-State Actors and International Law

Andrea Bianchi

Non-State Actors and International Law by Andrea BianchiThe expression 'non-state actors' has become part and parcel of the common parlance of international lawyers. Together with the traditional subjects of international law, such as states and international organizations, non-state actors play an important role in international law-making, law-adjudication and law-enforcement processes. Although the subjects/actors discourse takes place in a variety of contexts, most of the time the relevant narrative merely describes how different actors participate in the legal process in any given area. Little attention has been drawn to the theoretical discourse...

Law and Policy of Substantial Ownership and Effective Control of Airlines: Prospects for Change

Isabelle Lelieur

Law and Policy of Substantial Ownership and Effective Control of Airlines: Prospects for Change by Isabelle LelieurThe principle of airline substantial ownership and effective control is one of the biggest impediments to the air transport industry growth. Legitimately included in the bilateral agreements since 1946 for national security reasons, States have maintained the principle over the years and used it as a protectionist tool, as well as a bargaining chip. Today, considering that liberalization and globalization concepts are already well-established in the biggest industrial sectors, and a large number of cross-border investments occurs in most of the service sectors through mergers and acquisitions,...

Collisions in the Digital Paradigm: Law and Rule Making in the Internet Age

David J. Harvey

Collisions in the Digital Paradigm: Law and Rule Making in the Internet Age by David J. HarveyIt has been said that the only asset that a lawyer has is time. But the reality is that a lawyer's greatest asset is information. The practice and the business of law is all about information exchange. The flow of information travels in a number of different directions during the life of a case. A client communicates certain facts to a lawyer. The lawyer assimilates those facts and seeks out specialised legal information which may be applicable to those facts. In the course of a generation there has been a technological revolution which represents a paradigm shift in the flow of information...

A Mobile Century? Changes in Everyday Mobility in Britain in the Twentieth Century

Colin G. Pooley & Jean Turnbull & Mags Adams

A Mobile Century? Changes in Everyday Mobility in Britain in the Twentieth Century by Colin G. Pooley & Jean Turnbull & Mags AdamsFor most people in the developed world, the ability to travel freely on a daily basis is almost taken for granted. Although there is a large volume of literature on contemporary mobility and associated transport problems, there are no comprehensive studies of the ways in which these trends have changed over time. This book provides a detailed empirical analysis of mobility change in Britain over the twentieth century. Beginning with an explanatory theoretical overview, setting the UK case studies within an international context, the book then analyses changes in the journey to school, the journey...

Roberto Gargarella & Theunis Roux

Courts and Social Transformation in New Democracies: An Institutional Voice for the Poor? by Roberto Gargarella & Theunis RouxUsing case studies drawn from Latin America, Africa, India and Eastern Europe, this volume examines the role of courts as a channel for social transformation for excluded sectors of society in contemporary democracies. With a focus on social rights litigation in post-authoritarian regimes or in the context of fragile state control, the authors assess the role of judicial processes in altering (or perpetuating) social and economic inequalities and power relations in society. Drawing on interdisciplinary expertise in the fields of law, political theory, and political science, the chapters address...

Resolving Family Conflicts

Jane Murphy

Resolving Family Conflicts by Jane MurphyOver the past two decades, virtually all areas of family law have undergone major doctrinal and theoretical changes - from the definition of marriage, to the financial and parenting consequences of divorce, to the legal construction of parenthood. An equally important set of changes has transformed the resolution of family disputes. This 'paradigm shift' in family conflict resolution has reshaped the practice of family law and has fundamentally altered the way in which disputing families interact with the legal system. Moreover, the changes have important implications for the way that family...

States, the Law and Access to Refugee Protection: Fortresses and Fairness by Maria O'SullivanThis timely volume seeks to examine two of the most pertinent current challenges faced by asylum seekers in gaining access to international refugee protection: first, the obstacles to physical access to territory and, second, the barriers to accessing a quality asylum procedure Â? which the editors have termed 'access to justice'.
