  1. Multilateral Environmental Treaties

    Multilateral Environmental Treaties

    Edited by Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Attila Tanzi, Angeliki Papantoniou
    This volume of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Environmental Law presents an overview and selective analysis of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs). These agreements encompass the regulating aspects of the protection, conservation, management, use and exploitation of living and natural resources in various areas: from biodiversity to fisheries, marine environment, shared freshwater resources, atmosphere, climate change procedural obligations and rights and human rights, as well as Polar Regions. This book guides the reader through the multifarious conventional regulation of such areas of environmental protection, both at the global and regional levels, and details the path from the first post-war sectorial attempts at introducing international pieces of conventional environmental regulation to the booming of environmental instruments of the ‘90s and the recent fertile period of creation of new MEAs and their exponential growth.

  3. The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    Leslie F. Goldstein
    The US Supreme Court and Racial Minorities: Two Centuries of Judicial Review on Trial offers an in-depth, chronologically arranged look at the record of the US Supreme Court on racial minorities over the course of its first two centuries. It does not pose the anachronistic standard, “Did the Supreme Court get it right" but rather, “How did the Supreme Court compare to other branches of the federal government at the time?” Have these Justices, prevented against removal from office by discontented voters (in contrast to the President and the members of Congress), done any better than the elected branches of government at protecting racial minorities in America?

  4. Integrated Human Rights in Practice

    Integrated Human Rights in Practice

    Edited by Eva Brems, Ellen Desmet
    This book aims to introduce concrete and innovative proposals for a holistic approach to supranational human rights justice through a hands-on legal exercise: the rewriting of decisions of supranational human rights monitoring bodies. The contributing scholars have thus redrafted crucial passages of landmark human rights judgments and decisions, ‘as if human rights law were really one’, borrowing or taking inspiration from developments and interpretations throughout the whole multi-layered human rights protection system. In addition to the rewriting exercise, the contributors have outlined the methodology and/or theoretical framework that guided their approaches and explain how human rights monitoring bodies may adopt an integrated approach to human rights law.

  9. Access to Justice and International Organizations

    Access to Justice and International Organizations

    Pierre Schmitt
    Recent examples such as the cholera outbreak in Haiti demonstrate that individual victims of human rights violations by international organizations are frequently left in the cold. Following an examination of the human rights obligations of international organizations, this book scrutinizes their dispute settlement mechanisms as well as the conflict between their immunities and the right of access to justice before national jurisdictions. It concludes with normative proposals addressed both to international organizations and to national judges confronted with such cases. Learn More

    Law and Policy for a New Economy

    Edited by Melissa K. Scanlan
    This book makes the case for a New Environmentalism, and using a systems change approach, takes the reader through ideas for reorienting the economy.

It explores the values needed to transform our current economic system into a new economy supportive of ecological integrity, social justice, and vibrant democracy. Learn More

    Operating Law in a Global Context

    Jean-Sylvestre Bergé, Genevieve Helleringer
    Lawyers have to adapt their reasoning to the increasingly global nature of the situations they deal with. Often, rules formulated in a national, international or European environment must all be jointly applied to a given case. This book maps the analysis lawyers require when confronted by the operation of several laws in different contexts, and demonstrates how this enhances legal reasoning. Learn More
