This book is an empirical study of contributions by courts in the Global South to comparative constitutionalism. It offers an analytical and comparative framework for understanding these constitutional innovations and illustrates them with a detailed qualitative study of the most ambitious case in constitutional adjudication in Latin America over the last decade: the Colombian Constitutional Court's structural injunction affecting the rights of over four million internally displaced people (IDPs) in Colombia, and its implementation process. While the ruling (known as T-025 in Colombia) was handed down in 2004, its monitoring process continues to this day. This book traces the case's evolution over the last ten years from its origin to its effects on law, policy, politics, and public opinion. The far-reaching insights from this case study will be of interest to scholars of comparative constitutionalism as well as leading constitutional courts in Latin America, Africa, and Asia.

Over the past two decades, legal thought and practice in Latin America has changed dramatically: new constitutions or constitutional reforms have marked a widespread transition to democracy, fundamental institutional innovations have been introduced, and processes of globalization have had profound impacts on Latin American law. Law and Society in Latin America: A New Map offers the first systematic assessment by leading Latin American legal scholars of the momentous legal and political transformations in the region. Together with the liberalization of national economies, there has been an intensive importation of legal ideas and institutions - from the commercial and financial regulations promoted by the World Bank and World Trade Organization, to the adversarial criminal justice system inspired by the United States. Meanwhile, the globalization of human rights has had a fundamental impact - as demonstrated by the multiplication of laws, institutions, and public debates about the rights of groups that historically faced discrimination, and about the punishment of serious human rights violations committed by past or present authoritarian governments. These and other processes have not only radically altered the institutional landscape of the region, but also produced academic and practical innovations that are of global interest. Painting a portrait of the new Latin American legal thought for an international audience, Law and Society in Latin America: A New Map will be of particular interest to those studying law and Latin American studies.

The regulation of business in the global economy poses one of the main challenges for governance, as illustrated by the dynamic scholarly and policy debates about the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and a possible international treaty on the matter. This book takes on the conceptual and legal underpinnings of global governance approaches to business and human rights, with an emphasis on the Guiding Principles (GPs) and attention to the current treaty process. Analyses of the GPs have tended to focus on their static dimension, such as the standards they include, rather than on their capacity to change, to push the development of new norms, and practices that might go beyond the initial content of the GPs and improve corporate compliance with human rights. This book engages both the static and dynamic dimensions of the GPs, and considers the issue through the eyes of scholars and practitioners from different parts of the world.

The past few decades have witnessed an explosion of judgments on social rights around the world. However, we know little about whether these rulings have been implemented. Social Rights Judgments and the Politics of Compliance is the first book to engage in a comparative study of compliance of social rights judgments as well as their broader effects. Covering fourteen different domestic and international jurisdictions and drawing on multiple disciplines, it finds significant variance in outcomes and reveals both spectacular successes and failures in making social rights a reality on the ground. This variance is strikingly similar to that found in previous studies on civil rights, and the key explanatory factors lie in the political calculus of defendants and the remedial framework. The book also discusses which strategies have enhanced implementation, and focuses on judicial reflexivity, alliance building and social mobilisation.

This book focusses on the debates concerning aspects of intellectual property law that bear on access to medicines in a set of developing countries. Specifically, the contributors look at measures that regulate the acquisition, recognition, and use of patent rights on pharmaceuticals and trade secrets in data concerning them, along with the conditions under which these rights expire so as to permit the production of cheaper generic drugs. In addition, the book includes commentary from scholars in human rights, international institutions, and transnational activism. The case studies presented from 11 Latin American countries, have many commonalities in terms of economics, legal systems, and political histories, and yet they differ in the balance each has struck between proprietary interests and access concerns. The book documents this cross-country variation in legal norms and practice, identifies the factors that have led to differences in result, and theorizes as to how differentials among these countries occur and why they endure within a common transnational regulatory regime. The work concludes by putting the results of the investigations into a global administrative law frame and offers suggestions on institutional mechanisms for considering the trade-offs between health and wealth.

"En la última década, el lenguaje, los casos judiciales y las políticas públicas sobre derechos sociales han ganado una prominencia sin precedentes en América Latina. Mientras que en países como Argentina y Colombia los altos tribunales, los medios de comunicación y los funcionarios públicos utilizan rutinariamente los conceptos y las normas nacionales e internacionales sobre derechos sociales, en otros como Brasil, Chile y México el debate ha tomado vuelo en los últimos años, hasta el punto de que las discusiones sobre la salud, la seguridad social o la educación tienen lugar cada vez más en el lenguaje y la lógica de los derechos. Entre tanto, las nuevas constituciones de la región, desde la de Ecuador hasta la de Bolivia, han incorporado cláusulas protectoras de los derechos sociales. Se han sumado así a una ola de reformas que comparten esta característica y que se remonta por lo menos a la Constitución brasileña de 1988. En este sentido, la promesa de los derechos sociales de garantizar un bienestar material conforme con la dignidad humana se ha convertido en uno de los instrumentos esenciales para discutir y actuar frente a los gravísimos niveles de desigualdad y pobreza en la región. De la mano con esta tendencia, la producción intelectual sobre el tema se ha multiplicado con mucha rapidez. De hecho, los estudios latinoamericanos sobre los derechos económicos, sociales y culturales (DESC) constituyen hoy un campo de investigación muy rico y dinámico. Sin embargo, la bibliografía sobre los DESC en la región carece de esfuerzos comparativos entre diferentes países y muestra un escaso diálogo entre temas y disciplinas. Este libro es un proyecto colectivo de autores de varios países que busca contribuir a llenar esos vacíos, mediante estudios comparados y regionales sobre los tres temas clave de la discusión actual sobre los DESC: la aplicación judicial de estos derechos, la relación entre DESC y políticas públicas y la medición del cumplimiento de los DESC a través de indicadores." --Contratapa.
