  8. Designing Effective Legislation

    Designing Effective Legislation

    Maria Mousmouti
    What is effective legislation? Is it a matter of intuition, luck or the result of evidence based law making? Can it be consciously ‘engineered’? This book advances the novel idea that legislative effectiveness is the result of complex ‘mechanics’ in the conceptualisation, design and drafting of four elements inherent in every law: purpose, content, context and results. It concludes that effectiveness can be achieved with conceptual and methodological insights that guide the specific choices of lawmakers when designing and drafting legislation. Learn More

  9. The Quest for Rights

    The Quest for Rights

    Edited by Massimo La Torre, Leone Niglia, Mart Susi
    This discerning book explores the concept of human and fundamental rights, originating from the seminal work by the German legal scholar and constitutional lawyer Robert Alexy. Recognising the growing challenges to the idea of the universality of Human Rights, expert scholars consider time-independent conceptual questions which inevitably lie at the heart of any contemporary human rights discourse: What is the justification of balancing and/or trading off fundamental rights against other rights and collective goods? And are there utilitarian considerations that can limit the normative force of human rights? Learn More

  16. A Practical Guide to Using International Human Rights and Criminal Law Procedures

    A Practical Guide to Using International Human Rights and Criminal Law Procedures

    Connie de la Vega, Alen Mirza
    This book is a practical, experience-based guide for advocates seeking remedies for human rights violations through the use of international institutions. Since 1948, when the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, mechanisms for addressing human rights violations have multiplied to include UN Charter based bodies, treaty-based organizations including the international criminal court, and regional institutions. Each mechanism has its own admissibility requirements: accreditation, timeliness of claims, and exhaustion of remedies. For practitioners, the maze of rules and institutions can be difficult to navigate. This book offers step-by-step procedures for maximizing the institutions’ intended effect–promotion of human rights at all levels. Learn More

  20. Managing Facts and Feelings in Environmental Governance

    Managing Facts and Feelings in Environmental Governance

    Edited by Lorenzo Squintani, Jan Därpo, Luc Lavrysen, Peter-Tobias Stoll
    This timely book brings to the foreground the considerable tensions between the need to engage the public in the importance of environmental governance and the need of professional expertise to address the issues which arise. In doing so, it highlights that not only can public opinion deviate from scientific knowledge, but scientific knowledge itself can be lacunose or contradicting. Drawing together insights from some of the leading scholars, this engaging work will provide guidance to decision makers, including judges, on how to govern public participation procedures and professional expertise and the role that the precautionary principle can play in this regard.
