    Globalization, Sports Law and Labour Mobility

    Matt Nichol
    This book examines labour regulation and labour mobility in two professional baseball leagues: Major League Baseball in the United States and Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan.

This comparison of two highly restrictive labour markets utilizes regulatory theory and labour regulation and suggests a framework for a global player transfer system in baseball. Learn More

  10. Climate Change and Catastrophe Management in a Changing China

    Climate Change and Catastrophe Management in a Changing China

    Qihao He
    China is the largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world and also suffers from devastating climate catastrophes. Increasingly, policymakers in China have come to realize that government alone cannot adequately prevent or defray climate-related disaster risks. This book contends that a better way to manage catastrophe risk in China is through private insurance rather than directly through the Chinese government. In addition, private insurance could function as a substitute for, or complement to, government regulation of catastrophe risks by causing policyholders to take greater precautions to reduce climate change risks.

    Administrative Justice in the UN

    Niamh Kinchin
    The UN’s capacity as an administrative decision-maker that affects the rights of individuals is a largely overlooked aspect of its role in international affairs. This book explores the potential for a model of administrative justice that might act as a benchmark to which global decision-makers could develop procedural standards. Applied to the UN’s internal justice, refugee status determination, NGO participation and the Security Council, the global administrative justice model is used to appraise the existing procedural protections within UN administrative decision-making.
