"Plus que beaucoup d'autres parmi les disciplines juridiques, le droit international privé se nourrit de son histoire. La complexité, la technicité qui le caractérisent, mais aussi une continuité qu'aucune euphorie légiférante n'est venue compromettre appellent à exploiter le trésor où le temps passé a rassemblé les efforts constructifs d'une inlassable réflexion doctrinale et les leçons d'une expérience sans cesse renouvelée des cas concrets. La maîtrise des problèmes que la pluralité des ordres juridiques pose aux rapports de droit privé, comme l'intelligence des méthodes et des solutions mises en oeuvre, est à ce prix. Le présent ouvrage souhaite répondre à cette nécessité. Il y répond avec modestie, car il n'a pas cru pouvoir rendre compte de manière exhaustive des innombrables hésitations et témérités d'une doctrine et d'une pratique éprouvées par une casuistique foisonnante ; avec l'espoir d'orienter utilement dans la compréhension du droit international privé d'aujourd'hui, il s'est appliqué à présenter des éléments qui constituent autant de jalons balisant et structurant une évolution riche et complexe"--provided by Publisher.

"This book deals with convergences of legal doctrine despite jurisdictional, cultural, and political barriers, and of divergences due to such barriers, examining topics that are of vital importance to contemporary legal scholars. Written by leading scholars from more than twenty countries, its thirty-two chapters present a comparative analysis of cutting-edge legal topics of the 21st century. While each of the countries covered stands alone as a sovereign state, in a technologically advanced world their disparate systems nonetheless show comparable strategies in dealing with complex legal issues."-- Provided by publisher.

This challenging volume contains articles by a wide variety of well-known scholars and practitioners, and deals with human rights, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and humanitarian assistance, as well as other areas of international law relating to the protection of humanity. These are topics to which Flavia Lattanzi, in whose honour the volume is being published, has made an outstanding contribution and to which she has given her determined and unrelenting professional and personal commitment. As a former Professor at the Universities of Pisa, Sassari, Teramo and Roma Tre and as Judge ad litem at the International Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, she has adhered constantly to a number of important principles, as reflected in the research contained in this volume. They include the firm conviction that respect for human rights is an indispensable precondition for durable peace; the notion that grave breaches of human rights, including the refusal to provide assistance to populations in distress, can imply a threat to international peace and security; and that guarantees against human rights violations include the question of the punishment of core crimes under International Law.

Niklas Luhmann wrote a number of works which have decisively shaped the recent development of legal science as a theoretical discipline. Some basic elements of his theory have been widely appropriated by other legal theorists, such that it is difficult to imagine contemporary reflection in legal theory, and above all legal sociology, without Luhmann. This collection brings together the most important canonical and cutting-edge papers on Luhmann's legal thought. It is introduced in a comprehensive editorial piece by the editor which locates the articles in context and explores the issues and topics at hand.

Le panafricanisme offre un point de vue privilégié permettant de rendre compte de l?évolution des rapports entre l'Afrique et le droit international. Le panafricanisme est passé d'un mouvement de la diaspora constitué d'individus et d'associations engagés dans le combat pour l'émancipation des peuples africains, à des regroupements d'Etats indépendants et d'organisations intergouvernementales."-- Provided by publisher.

This volume examines the tax systems of some twenty countries to determine whether their tax laws are used to support growth and development across borders in lower-income and poor countries. Given the critical economic development needs of poorer countries and the importance of stability in these regions to the security of populations throughout the world, the use of a country's tax laws to support investment in the developing world gains crucial significance. This book explores whether international standards promoting the fundamental values of the major tax systems of the world accommodate incentives for these nations. In addition, it analyzes the way in which adoption of principles by higher income nations to protect their own revenue bases has a spill-over effect, impairing the ability of developing countries to sustain their economies. Following an introduction that synthesizes worldwide trends, the volume contains separate chapters for a variety of countries detailing the underlying goals and values of each system and the way in which the decision to employ (or not employ) incentives accommodates those ends. The chapters include reports for: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Maldives, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Uganda, United Kingdom, United States, and Venezuela. The volume memorializes the work of the General Reporter and National Reporters at the Taxation and Development session of the 19th Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law held in July, 2014, in Vienna, Austria.

Women are a rapidly growing minority in prisons. Prison systems, however, have always been determined by the behaviour of men. The 2010 UN Bangkok Rules form a body of rules that is specifically aimed at the needs of women in prison. Being the first international instrument on this subject, the Bangkok Rules can be considered a milestone. Thus this volume focuses on the topic of women in prison in general, and on the Bangkok Rules in particular. The volume comprises an introductory chapter, seven thematic chapters, and 23 chapters dedicated to individual countries around the world. Themes discussed in these chapters include, among others, the (international) human rights framework applicable to women in prison, statistics and criminological factors relevant to women in prison, and the actual conditions of women in prison worldwide. An extensive collection of expert knowledge, this volume intends to highlight both good practice in the context of women in prison and the many challenges that lie ahead.

"The present volume comprises various essays that examine the writing down and transmission of laws and legal collections in the ancient world, including Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt and Israel. Using a comparative approach, the volume envisions the writing of legal collections as a complex set of social, political, economic and religious processes, and seeks to trace a number of the key dynamics involved in those processes. Additionally, the volume gives special attention to the writing down of ritual laws, which are considered here as a specific yet nonetheless instructive instance of legal formulation in ancient societies. In keeping with this methodological perspective, the first part of the volume ('Codes, codification and legislators') discusses the processes involved in the creation of legal collections as well as the relevance of the analytical categories used to describe these processes, whereas the second part ('Writing ritual prescriptions: meanings and functions') addresses issues related to the codification of ritual norms, especially in Greece and Israel. Overall, the volume aims to further the discussion on the writing of laws in antiquity with regard to a number of key questions, such as the relationship between written and unwritten norms, the function of written laws in the preservation and transformation of structures of authority, and the place of religion and rituals in processes of legal codification."-- Provided by publisher.

"L'action humanitaire internationale qui se mobilise à propos des grandes catastrophes naturelles ou des confl its internationaux et non internationaux fait tous les jours la une de l'actualité internationale dans les médias. L'opinion publique est fortement sensibilisée à ces questions. D'une manière générale, l'action humanitaire se déploie dans l'urgence et doit gérer des situations d'urgence. De nombreux problèmes pratiques se posent : problèmes de logistique, de coordination de l'action des divers intervenants, d'accès aux victimes, de l'identification des besoins des destinataires, de la réponse adéquate à fournir, etc. Ceux-ci soulèvent des enjeux politiques souvent très délicats. Si les spécialistes de l'action humanitaire sont de plus en plus entraînés pour régler ce genre de difficultés, le droit et les juristes sont mal équipés pour cela. Une réflexion s'imposait dès lors de la part des différents acteurs de cette action humanitaire mais aussi des universitaires. Cet ouvrage rassemble ainsi des témoignages de terrain et des réponses à ces problèmes très concrets. Il a pour objectif de déterminer si, entre la pratique et le droit, il existe une place pour le développement d'une nouvelle branche du droit, celle du droit de l'action humanitaire. Sont successivement abordées les sources et la codification de ce droit de l'action humanitaire ainsi que la mise en oeuvre de celui-ci par les acteurs intergouvernementaux--O.N.U. et institutions financières--et non gouvernementaux--O.N.G. et C.I.C.R. Cet ouvrage ne concerne pas uniquement les universitaires et les spécialistes ; il a pour ambition de s'adresser tant aux initiés qu'aux non-initiés et plus généralement à tous ceux que préoccupe le développement de l'action humanitaire."-- Back cover.
