"Appointment of judges and its process is the most vital aspect of the independence of judiciary, also a basic feature of the Constitution of India. The constitution enshrines various provisions for the independence of judiciary but preferred accountability to the autonomy by vesting the authority of appointment in the executive in consultation with the Chief Justice of India, as judiciary cannot be held accountable in the manner as the executive. However the Apex Court ruled that the judiciary cannot be independent if the primacy in not vested in the opinion of the Chief Justice of India, and invented the collegium, paving way to the endless criticisms and controversies. This book reviews the appointment of judges in the erstwhile federal court, the Supreme Court of India, since its inception and incorporates the constitutionally provided mechanism, any convention developed so far in the appointment of judges and related controversies arose while appointment taking place in the institution and thereafter, if any...[The] book also discusses the developments, reforms, discussions, suggestions, criticism and involved controversies in the process of appointment of judges."-- Back cover.

  • Foreword / Luciano Vandelli
  • Introduction: The European Charter of Local Self-Government as an international treaty with constitutional significance
  • The historical legitimacy of the charter
  • The charter as a source of international, EU and domestic law
  • Concept and design of local self-government in Europe
  • The relevance of the charter for international and comparative public law.
"[This book offers an] account of the defining features of European constitutional local government law using both an international and comparative law perspective. The book argues that differences between local government systems in Europe, typical examples of internal affairs of a state, can be smoothed away by construing a consistent system of constitutional principles to be coherently applied at domestic level across the whole European legal space. This system can be best grasped by looking at the European Charter of Local Self-Government, which embodies a concept of self-government rooted in common legal traditions, and at its subsequent practice within the Council of Europe."-- Back cover.

  • Private regulation, compliance and reviewability of contracts / Dorota Leccykiewicz.
"Contract law is increasingly used to serve regulatory purposes considered beyond the reach of private law. This Handbook explores a range of modern practices that are not typically treated in standard expositions of this area. By exploring these phenomena, it reveals the changing role of regulatory private law in a globalised legal world - one where distinctions between public and private law, hard law and soft law, and rule making and contracting have become increasingly blurred. Contributors explore key examples drawing on an extensive range of private law. The book pays close attention to the use of codes of conduct to coordinate and steer behaviour in business-to-business and business-to-consumer relationships, concerning health and safety, environment, and employment conditions. It also examines the formation of contractual 'networks', such as franchises, to regulate multi-party trade relationships, and the application of contracts and contract law to secure business and consumer compliance with public standards."-- Back cover.

  • Juridical insights and theological disputes : engaging Robert E. Rodes, Jr.
  • Second chances and statutes of limitations : engaging Walter Kasper
  • Legalism and christian ethics : engaging Grisez and Engelhardt
Ethics at the Edges of Law makes the case that religious moralists should treat the discipline of law as a valuable conversation partner, rather than reducing it to a vehicle for enforcing judgments about morality and public policy. Religious moralists should treat the secular law as a source of moral wisdom and conceptual insight, in the same way that they treat the discipline of philosophy. Cathleen Kaveny develops her argument by showing how the work of a range of important contemporary figures in Christian ethics, including John Noonan, Stanley Hauerwas, and Margaret Farley, can be enriched and illuminated by engagement with particular aspects of the American legal tradition. The book is divided into three parts: Part I, "Narratives and Norms, " examines how the workings of the legal tradition can shed light on the development of religious and moral traditions. Part II, "Love, Justice, and Law, " uses particular legal cases and controversies to advance questions about the relationship of love and justice in Christian ethics. Part III, "Legal Categories and Theological Problems, " shows how legal categories and concepts can help reframe and even resolve particular moral controversies within religious communities. Ethics at the Edges of Law jumpstarts a fruitful, mutually engaged conversation between the American legal tradition and the tradition of Christian ethics.

  • Afterword. Governing gene editing : a constitutional conversation / Stephen Hilgartner.
"Technologies like CRISPR and gene drives are ushering in a new era of genetic engineering, wherein the technical means to modify DNA are cheaper, faster, more accurate, more widely accessible, and with more far-reaching effects than ever before. These cutting-edge technologies raise legal, ethical, cultural, and ecological questions that are so broad and consequential for both human and other-than-human life that they can be difficult to grasp. What is clear, however, is that the power to directly alter not just a singular form of life but also the genetics of entire species and thus the composition of ecosystems is currently both inadequately regulated and undertheorized. In [this book]...scholars from law, the life sciences, philosophy, environmental studies, science and technology studies, animal health, and religious studies examine what is at stake with these new biotechnologies for life and law, both human and beyond."-- Back cover.

"The World Bank defines governance as 'the manner in which power is exercised in the management of a country's economic and social resources for development.' Better governance is crucial for translating the large development and welfare expenditure of public authorities into enduring outcomes for the people. While there is a general appreciation that development programs have the right objectives, their implementation on the ground is poor. Implementation of programs can be improved through a multi-faceted approach relying on professionalization of public service delivery, total quality management (TQM), and innovative use of digital and other technologies which improve monitoring and supervision. It can also be improved through: greater emphasis on social mobilisation and capacity building; strengthening of local institutions; and building deeper partnerships with civil society organisations and the community to determine the needs and aspirations of the people. The present volume contains 11 articles, authored by experts in the field of public policy, that provide...insights into various aspects of governance in India in the context of socio-economic development.

  • Stories from the past, laws and rights for the future.
"Secwépemc People, Land, and Laws is a journey through the 10,000-year history of the Interior Plateau nation in British Columbia Told through the lens of past and present Indigenous storytellers, this volume details how a homeland has shaped Secwépemc existence while the Secwépemc have in turn shaped their homeland. Marianne and Ronald Ignace, with contributions from ethnobotanist Nancy Turner, archaeologist Mike Rousseau, and geographer Ken Favrholdt, compellingly weave together Secwépemc narratives about ancestors' deeds, and demonstrate how these stories are the manifestation of Indigenous laws (stsqʼeyʼ) for social and moral conduct among humans and all sentient beings on the land, and for social and political relations within the nation and with outsiders. Breathing new life into stories about past transformations, the authors place these narratives in dialogue with written historical sources, and knowledge from archaeology, ethnography, linguistics, earth science, and ethnobiology. In addition to a wealth of detail about Secwépemc land stewardship, the social and political order, and spiritual concepts and relations embedded in the Indigenous language, the book shows how between the mid-1800s and 1920s the Secwépemc people resisted devastating oppression, the theft of their land, and fought to maintain political autonomy while tenaciously continuing to maintain a connection with their homeland, ancestors, and laws. An exemplary work in collaboration, Secwépemc People, Land, and Laws points to the ways in which Indigenous laws and traditions can guide present and future social and political process among the Secwépemc and with settler society."-- Provided by publisher.

  • IRS lacks jurisdiction to regulate nonprofit governance
  • IRS lacks authority to regulate nonprofit governance
  • Concluding thoughts.
"Without warning, the IRS began, in 2007, to regulate in the realm of nonprofit governance. [This book] offers an explanation as to why, as a matter of law, the IRS does not have the jurisdiction or the authority to regulate the governance affairs of the nation s public charities and other categories of tax-exempt organizations. [This book] reviews the federal law concerning government agencies jurisdiction and authority. The book evaluates IRS policymaking and demonstrates that the IRS s policies are arbitrary and capricious. [The author] concludes that the IRS lacks both the jurisdiction and authority in connection with nonprofit governance. [The book] provides a solid legal underpinning for those who are concerned about the IRS's expansion of its authority into the realm of nonprofit governance, particularly when the IRS has a lengthy record of getting the underlying law wrong and imposing detrimental policies and practices on these organizations. It will be a necessary read for nonprofit directors, trustees, officers and senior executive staff and their lawyers."-- Back cover.

  • Introduction
  • Colonial legacy of bureaucracy
  • Systemic constitutional lacunas
  • Politically motivated litigation adding by vulnerabilities of judicial review
  • Delays in dispensation of justice
  • Conclusion.
"This work is about factors that seem to affect the role of judiciary in Pakistan's governance. It mainly focuses on prerogative writ jurisdictions of high courts and original jurisdiction of Supreme Court to enforce fundamental rights and to provide adequate remedies against the ultra vires public actions. It attemps to locate reasons which hinder judiciary to ensure rule of law for good governance, tending to restrict judicial review to effectively review public policies and actions. The study discusses in some details that governments both democratic and non-democratic, have been conscious and often tried to counter the power of judicial review through amendments in constitutional history of the country."-- Page [2].

  • The uneven and unpredictable path of implementation

  • Conclusion.
"In 2003, when Terrence Graham was sixteen, he and three other teens attempted to rob a barbeque restaurant in Jacksonville, Florida. Though they left with no money, and no one was seriously injured, Terrence was sentenced to die in prison for his involvement in that crime. As shocking as Terrence's sentence sounds, it is merely a symptom of contemporary American juvenile justice practices. In the United States, adolescents are routinely transferred out of juvenile court and into adult criminal court without any judicial oversight. Once in adult court, children can be sentenced without regard for their youth. Juveniles are housed in adult correctional facilities, they may be held in solitary confinement, and they experience the highest rates of sexual and physical assault among inmates. Until 2005, children convicted in America's courts were subject to the death penalty; today, they still may be sentenced to die in prison-no matter what efforts they make to rehabilitate themselves. America has waged a war on kids. In The War on Kids, Cara Drinan reveals how the United States went from being a pioneer to an international pariah in its juvenile sentencing practices. Academics and journalists have long recognized the failings of juvenile justice practices in this country and have called for change. Despite the uncertain political climate, there is hope that recent Supreme Court decisions may finally make those calls a reality. The War on Kids seizes upon this moment of judicial and political recognition that children are different in the eyes of the law. Drinan chronicles the shortcomings of juvenile justice by drawing upon social science, legal decisions, and first-hand correspondence with Terrence and others like him-individuals whose adolescent errors have cost them their lives. At the same time, The War on Kids maps out concrete steps that states can take to correct the course of American juvenile justice." -- Publisher's description

When are developing countries able to initiate periods of rapid growth and why have so few of these countries been able to sustain growth over decades? Deals and Development: The Political Dynamics of Growth Episodes seeks to answer these questions and many more through a novel conceptual framework built from a political economy of business-government relations. Economic growth for most developing countries is not a linear process. Growth instead proceeds in booms and busts, yet most frameworks for thinking about economic growth are built on the faulty assumption that a country's economic performance is largely stable. Deals and Development explains how growth episodes emerge and when growth, once ignited, is maintained for a sustained period. It applies its new framework to examine the growth of countries across a range of institutional and political contexts in Africa and Asia, using the examples of Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Ghana, Liberia, Malawi, Rwanda and Uganda. Through these country analyses it demonstrates the explanatory power of its framework and the importance of feedback cycles in which economic trends interact with political behaviour to either sustain or terminate a growth episode. Offering a lens through which to analyse complex scenarios and unwieldy amounts of information, this book provides actionable levers of intervention to bring around reform and improve a country's chance at achieving transformative economic growth.
