  1. Public Policy in Action

    Public Policy in Action

    Victor Bekkers, Menno Fenger, Peter Scholten
    Approaching policy processes from four perspectives: rationalism, constructivism, institutionalism and the political perspective, these perspectives are then applied to the different stages of the policy process (agenda setting, policy formulation, decision-making, implementation, evaluation and policy change) in a variety of policy domains. The book enables students to develop a better understanding of the multi-faced character of policy processes in today’s society in which rational behaviour, power and interests, frames and attitudes and institutional conditions are competing with each other.

  4. The Legal Protection of Refugees with Disabilities

    The Legal Protection of Refugees with Disabilities

    Mary Crock, Laura Smith-Khan, Ron McCallum, Ben Saul
    This ground-breaking book focuses on the ‘forgotten refugees’, detailing people with disabilities who have crossed borders in search of protection from disaster or human conflict. The authors explore the intersection between one of the oldest international human rights treaties, the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, with one of the newest: the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Drawing on fieldwork in six countries hosting refugees in a variety of contexts – Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Uganda, Jordan and Turkey – the book examines how the CRPD is (or should) be changing the way that governments and aid agencies engage with and accommodate persons with disabilities in situations of displacement. The timeliness of the book is underscored by the adoption in mid-2016 of the UN Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action adopted at the World Humanitarian Summit.

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

    The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    Leslie F. Goldstein
    The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities: Two Centuries of Judicial Review on Trial offers an in-depth, chronologically arranged look at the record of the U.S. 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?

    Vassillis Pergantis

From consent to be bound to treaty succession, and from treaty denunciation to reservations, this book offers a tour de force on the paradigm of state consent, its challenges, and their politics.

    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
