This volume of Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Europe covers Finland and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original Finnish 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.

  • Introduction
  • Dissolution of the pre-modern patriarchy : negotiations on universal legal subjects
  • Introducing legal equality in the framework of the nuclear family
  • Equality as symmetry : the Nordic welfare model as dismantling or recognising gender?
  • Liberalism revisited : individual rights, equal protection and differences
  • Late modern legal personality : re-establishment or dissolution of the modern concepts?
  • Conclusion.
This book is the first comprehensive account of developments in legal equality in Finland from the late 19th through the early 21st century. The book demonstrates that equality is never a status or a state of affairs that either exists or does not exist. It is rather a continuous and controversial process of creating meanings that are bound to time and place. By exploring legal discourses, the book shows how in Finnish legal history, the formal and symmetrical understanding of equality has been dominant. However, this understanding has been informed by utilitarian arguments rather than the true protection of women as individuals. The assimilation of women into the male model of equality has been the powerful thread of equality policies and the law, but the gendered understandings of legal personality have imbued the formal and neutral law. The book will be of interest to legal historians, historians, and feminist scholars of law and social sciences.

  • Environmental problems related to space activities
  • Space law from an environmental perspective
  • International environmental law in the space sector
  • From general principles to practicable rules.
While decades of space ventures have led to significant technological advances, space activities have also brought increasing environmental problems. This book examines the current international legal regimes in space law and environmental law in order to ascertain their applicability and efficacy in addressing environmental threats in the space sector. The research suggests mechanisms which could improve environmental protection in the sector and strengthen the environmental element in space law. These mechanisms include a variety of norm-setting strategies used in international environmental management. Special attention is drawn to the potential of environmental impact assessment in the space sector and to dispute resolution procedures. Like other areas of human activities, the space sector should accommodate both economic interests and environmental protection in line with the principle of sustainable development.

This convenient volume sets out the main features of Finnish intellectual property law, a particularly significant area of practice today since Finland's emergence during the 1990s as a world leader in the electronics and software industries. It provides a clear overview of the field, and, at the same time, offers practical guidance on which sound preliminary decisions may be based. The ins and outs of the legal protection of copyrights, trademarks, patents, integrated circuit designs, plant varieties, and all other important aspects are covered, with due attention to the ownership and transfer of intellectual property rights, registration procedures, and remedies for infringement. For a reliable understanding of Finnish intellectual property law, "Intellectual Property Law in Finland" should be an ideal quick reference book for both practitioners and students.
