Pluralism in International Criminal Law

Author: Elies van Sliedregt
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191008290
Release Date: 2014-10-02
Genre: Law

Despite the growth in international criminal courts and tribunals, the majority of cases concerning international criminal law are prosecuted at the domestic level. This means that both international and domestic courts have to contend with a plethora of relevant, but often contradictory, judgments by international institutions and by other domestic courts. This book provides a detailed investigation into the impact this pluralism has had on international criminal law and procedure, and examines the key problems which arise from it. The work identifies the various interpretations of the concept of pluralism and discusses how it manifests in a broad range of aspects of international criminal law and practice. These include substantive jurisdiction, the definition of crimes, modes of individual criminal responsibility for international crimes, sentencing, fair trial rights, law of evidence, truth-finding, and challenges faced by both international and domestic courts in gathering, testing and evaluating evidence. Authored by leading practitioners and academics in the field, the book employs pluralism as a methodological tool to advance the debate beyond the classic view of 'legal pluralism' leading to a problematic fragmentation of the international legal order. It argues instead that pluralism is a fundamental and indispensable feature of international criminal law which permeates it on several levels: through multiple legal regimes and enforcement fora, diversified sources and interpretations of concepts, and numerous identities underpinning the law and practice. The book addresses the virtues and dangers of pluralism, reflecting on the need for, and prospects of, harmonization of international criminal law around a common grammar. It ultimately brings together the theories of legal pluralism, the comparative law discourse on legal transplants, harmonization, and convergence, and the international legal debate on fragmentation to show where pluralism and divergence will need to be accepted as regular, and even beneficial, features of international criminal justice.

Skills Values Evidence

Genre: Law

Skills & Values: Evidence is one of the first titles in the new Skills & Values Series. The books in this new series are designed to enable professors to assign supplementary practice-oriented material to enrich their students' traditional study. Each book in the series includes robust online content that is delivered through Web Courses. The content for the Teacher's Manual is also posted to the supporting Web Course. The online components of these books add an exciting dimension because they are designed to teach the current media-saturated generation of students in ways that are more effective for them. Skills & Values: Evidence challenges students to apply the substantive content from their Evidence course in a way that helps them see what the doctrinal law of Evidence looks like when it "crosses a lawyer's desk." Each chapter offers a stand-alone exercise which focuses on a particular rule under the Federal Rules of Evidence. The exercises--which often include documents, diagrams, photographs, and trial transcripts--require students to put doctrine into action. Sometimes students are directed to make an argument to the trial court; other times, they are directed to conduct discovery, interview witnesses, examine witnesses on the stand to lay evidentiary foundations, or voir dire those witnesses to weaken the foundation. The materials are designed to allow students to self-assess, thus enhancing the learning experience while allowing professors maximum flexibility to choose the level of their own engagement.

Law and Global Health

Author: Michael Freeman
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191003462
Release Date: 2014-05-29
Genre: Political Science

Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems (now available in journal format), is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. Law and Global Health, the sixteenth volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the scholarship examining the relationship between global health and the law. Covering a wide range of areas from all over the world, articles in the volume look at areas of human rights, vulnerable populations, ethical issues, legal responses and governance.

Does Regulation Kill Jobs

Author: Cary Coglianese
Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press
ISBN: 9780812209242
Release Date: 2014-01-06
Genre: Political Science

As millions of Americans struggle to find work in the wake of the Great Recession, politicians from both parties look to regulation in search of an economic cure. Some claim that burdensome regulations undermine private sector competitiveness and job growth, while others argue that tough new regulations actually create jobs at the same time that they provide other benefits. Does Regulation Kill Jobs? reveals the complex reality of regulation that supports neither partisan view. Leading legal scholars, economists, political scientists, and policy analysts show that individual regulations can at times induce employment shifts across firms, sectors, and regions—but regulation overall is neither a prime job killer nor a key job creator. The challenge for policymakers is to look carefully at individual regulatory proposals to discern any job shifting they may cause and then to make regulatory decisions sensitive to anticipated employment effects. Drawing on their analyses, contributors recommend methods for obtaining better estimates of job impacts when evaluating regulatory costs and benefits. They also assess possible ways of reforming regulatory institutions and processes to take better account of employment effects in policy decision-making. Does Regulation Kills Jobs? tackles what has become a heated partisan issue with exactly the kind of careful analysis policymakers need in order to make better policy decisions, providing insights that will benefit both politicians and citizens who seek economic growth as well as the protection of public health and safety, financial security, environmental sustainability, and other civic goals.

Philosophical Foundations of Fiduciary Law

Author: Andrew S. Gold
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191005299
Release Date: 2014-08-14
Genre: Law

Fiduciary law is a critically important body of law. Fiduciary duties ensure the integrity of a remarkable variety of relationships, institutions, and organizations. They apply to relationships of great personal significance, including in some jurisdictions the relationship between parents and children. They structure a wide variety of commercial relationships, and they are essential to the regulation of relationships between professional service providers and their clients, including relationships between lawyer and client, doctor and patient, and investment manager and client. Fiduciary duties, perhaps uniquely in private law, challenge traditional ways of marking the boundaries between private and public law, inasmuch as they figure prominently in public governance. Indeed, there is even a storied tradition of thinking of the authority of the state in fiduciary terms. Notwithstanding its importance, fiduciary law has been woefully under-analysed by legal theorists. Filling this gap with a series of chapters by leading theorists, this book includes chapters on: the nature of fiduciary relationships, the connection between fiduciary duties and morality, the content and significance of fiduciary loyalty, the economic significance of fiduciary law, the application of fiduciary principles to public law and international law, the import of fiduciary relationships to theories of authority, and various other fundamental topics in the field. In many cases, new and important questions are raised by the book's chapters. Indeed, this book not only offers a much-needed theoretical assessment of fiduciary topics, it defines the field going forward, setting an agenda for future philosophical study of fiduciary law.

​Die christliche Rezeption der Menschenrechte als grundlegendste Rechte, die einem Menschen zukommen, gestaltete sich in der Vergangenheit durchaus ambivalent. Der in diesem Band vorliegende evangelische Entwurf einer Theologie der Menschenrechte birgt das Potenzial, Menschenrechte nun auch theologisch fruchtbar zu machen und damit friedensethisch zu entfalten. Dabei stehen vor allem Fragen seiner Tragfähigkeit und Anschlussfähigkeit im Mittelpunkt der interdisziplinären Betrachtung.
