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.

"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."-- Back cover.

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. 0D?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. 0Si 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. 0Sont 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. 0Cet 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.

This volume of Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Europe covers France and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original French language while the annotations and supporting material are in English. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text is preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The focus of the collection is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Europe, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life.

  • Comparison with related international human rights provisions
  • The scope of CRC article 15
  • Moving forward with CRC article 15
  • Conclusion.
In this commentary, Aoife Daly provides analysis of Article 15 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - the right of children to freedom of association and assembly. Relevant international law text and case law are examined, but this commenary goes beyond this to reconceptualise Article 15. The right is applied to themes as varied as association with family and friends, political demonstrations, and the unionisation of working children, with the special position of children to the forefront of the analysis. Possibilities for progressing the right through UN mechanisms, courts and other arenas are considered. In doing so, this book pushes traditional boundaries to and understandings of association and assembly, drawing-out particularly child-specific elements of this crucial right.

In a political climate which encourages interdependence between States, international law is steadily developing and increasingly becoming a key factor in the organisation of inter-State relations. This concept of interdependence implies a strong commitment by all States to international law and a shared responsibility for its application. Through the ad hoc Committee of Legal Advisers on Public International Law (CAHDI), the Council of Europe contributes to the implementation of public international law and further acts as a catalyst for its development. Indeed, the CAHDI has established itself as an invaluable actor in the development of public international law, functioning notably as the European Observatory of Reservations to International Treaties, a unique and flagship function acknowledged today by other regional organisations. The CAHDI also acts as a laboratory and a catalyst for new ideas. This volume, containing thought-provoking essays by former and current Legal Advisers from a wide selection of Council of Europe countries, arose from the conference celebrating the 50th anniversary of the CAHDI meetings and showcases CAHDI's pioneering work. Dans un contexte politique qui favorise l'interdependance entre les Etats, le droit international ne cesse de se developper et apparait comme un element important qui organise les relations entre ceux-ci. Ce concept d'interdependance implique un engagement fort de la part de tous les Etats envers le droit international, ainsi qu'une responsabilite partagee pour son application. A travers le Comite ad hoc des Conseillers juridiques sur le droit international public (CAHDI), le Conseil de l'Europe contribue a la mise en /uvre du droit international public et agit comme le catalyseur de son developpement. En effet, le CAHDI s'est impose comme un acteur indispensable pour le developpement du droit international public, fonctionnant notamment en tant qu'Observatoire europeen des reserves aux traites internationaux, une fonction unique et phare reconnue aujourd'hui par d'autres organisations regionales. Le CAHDI agit egalement comme un laboratoire et un catalyseur de nouvelles idees. Ce volume, contenant des essais incitant a la reflexion qui ont ete elabores par d'anciens et actuels Conseillers juridiques d'un vaste eventail de pays du Conseil de l'Europe, est ne de la Conference celebrant le 50eme anniversaire des reunions du CAHDI et illustre le travail de pionnier du CAHDI.
