  • Introduction: About courts, politics, and East Africa

  • Locus standi in post-colonial East Africa
  • From law in the public interest to "transformative constitutionalism"

"Using the phenomenon of public interest litigation (PIL) as the primary focus of analysis, this book explores the manner in which the judicial branch of government in the three East African states of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda has engaged with questions traditionally off-limits to adjudication and court-based resolution. It is rooted in an incisive investigation of the history of politics and governance in the sub-region, accompanied by an extensive repertoire of judicial decisions. It also provides an...account of the manner in which courts of law have engaged with state power in a bid to alternatively deliver or subvert justice to the socially marginalized and the politically victimized. The focus of the book is on judicial struggles over sexual and gender-based discrimination, social justice and poverty, and the adjudication of presidential elections. Employing the device of case deconstruction and analysis, the study uncovers the conceptual and structural factors which have witnessed public interest litigation emerge as a critical factor in the struggle for more inclusive and equitable structures of governance and social order. Needless to say, as judges battle with time-honoured legal precedents, received dogmas and contending (and often antagonistic) societal forces, the struggle in the courts is neither straightforward nor necessarily always transformative."-- Back cover.

  • Introducing AI and law and its role in future legal practice
  • Modeling statutory reasoning
  • Modeling case-based legal reasoning
  • Models for predicting legal outcomes
  • Computational models of legal argument
  • Representing legal concepts in ontologies and type systems
  • Making legal informational retrieval smarter
  • Machine learning with legal texts
  • Extracting information from statutory and regulatory texts
  • Extracting argument-related information from legal case texts
  • Conceptual legal information retrieval for cognitive computing
  • Cognitive computing legal apps.
"The field of artificial intelligence (AI) and the law is on the cusp of a revolution that began with text analytic programs like IBM's Watson and Debater and the open-source information management architectures on which they are based. Today, new legal applications are beginning to appear, and this book - designed to explain computational processes to non-programmers - describes how they will change the practice of law, specifically by connecting computational models of legal reasoning directly with legal text, generating arguments for and against particular outcomes, predicting outcomes, and explaining these predictions with reasons that legal professionals will be able to evaluate for themselves. These legal apps will support conceptual legal information retrieval and enable cognitive computing, enabling a collaboration between humans and computers in which each performs the kinds of intelligent activities that they can do best."-- Back cover.

"Around the world, citizens have lost faith in their political and economic institutions -- leading to unprecedented levels of political instability and economic volatility. From Moscow to Brussels, from Washington to Cairo, the failure of democracies and autocracies to manage the fiscal and political crises facing us has led to a profound disquiet, spawning protest movements of the left, right, and center. [This book] analyzes the leadership crises facing democracies and autocratic governments alike. [The author assess] why this collapse in trust happened; and offers a...blueprint for how we can restore public trust in government and economic institutions in a world of division, dissension, and governments clearly lacking in responsiveness to citizen concerns. [The author] offers practical steps to fix our democracy and rebuild international institutions."-- Provided by publisher.

"[This books draws upon] primary and secondary sources of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) law, including worldwide case law and scholarly opinion in this fully updated fifth (worldwide) edition. The 1980 CISG regulates the rights of buyers and sellers in international sales. The Convention is the first sales law treaty to win acceptance on a worldwide scale, and the impressive list of some eighty-five CISG 'contracting states' already accounts for more than three-fourths of all world trade. The importance of the CISG in the international arena is underlined by thousands of reported decisions where the CISG has been held to apply, thus evidencing the conduct of countless international traders who (by default or by express choice ? regularly subject their sales contracts to the Convention. The CISG has also impacted on sales legislation at national and regional (e.g., EU) levels.

  • E-governance, deliberative democracy and voting processes : part one
  • E-governance, deliberative democracy and voting processes : part two.
"E-governance as a field of study is relatively new when considered within the broader historical context of US democracy. The advent of the modern Internet in the early 1990s yielded new technologies that began to shift citizen expectations of how government can -- and in many cases should -- govern. Though innovations continue to emerge at a rapid pace, these technologies may be used to reinforce long-held deliberative democracy principles, including transparency, accountability and flexibility. [This book explores] the role that technological innovation plays in facilitating government action and citizen participation. [The author] differentiates e-governance from e-government and examines the increasingly important role social media and crowdsourcing have come to play in our democracy, and the interactions between technology, polling, voting, and outcomes. Including practical cases ranging from DMV registration to online tax filing and markers of successful implementation, [this book] addresses how the adoption and expansion of electronic platforms align with new government paradigms and looks to future trends in this rapidly expanding field."-- Back cover.

"At present, Europe is confronted with a number of serious common and global challenges, the most important being the economic crisis, migration issues, geopolitical tensions at its external borders, terrorism, as well as climate change and environmental challenges. These developments have a huge impact on the stability and security of the continent as a whole and on each individual European country. Europe, more particularly the European Union, has to organise its governance and security infrastructure in such a way that it can cope with these global threats. This book collects a number of topics and themes connected to the governance and/or security dimensions of EU co-operation. The parts of the book deal respectively with: the values and general principles of EU co-operation; institutional aspects of EU co-operation; a number of individual policy domains; areas of European criminal law; the external relations of the EU; and the future functioning of EU co-operation as a whole."-- Provided by publisher.

  • The origins of victimization and the administration of war in Colombia
  • Justice and peace in times of impunity and war
  • Voice, testimony, truth, and memory
  • Maintaining exclusion
  • Conclusions.
"This book analyzes the implementation of Law 975 in Colombia, known as the Justice and Peace Law, and proposes a critical view of the transitional scenario in Colombia from 2005 onwards. The author analyzes three aspects of the law: 1) The process of negotiation with paramilitary groups; 2) The constitution of the Group Memoria Histórica (Historic Memory) in Colombia and 3) The process of a 2007 law that was finally not passed. The book contains interviews with key actors in the justice and peace process in Colombia. The author analyses the contradictions, tensions, ambiguities and paradoxes that define the practices of such actors. This book highlights that a critical view of this kind of transitional scenario is indispensable to determine steps towards a just and peaceful society."-- Back cover.
