"In the face of such 'unspeakable truths,' wouldn't it be better to simply, quietly bow out?" (Kora Andrieu: Sorry for the Genocide, 2009). This book affirms this question regarding colonial crimes through an interdisciplinary approach. For coming to terms with massive systemic injustice, not only the historic foundations and legal questions are relevant, but also political viewpoints as well as peace ethics. The book reveals: In the face of extreme violence, even genocide, a political apology can be an effective tool for conflict transformation, even when the injustice is far in the past.
This authoritative commentary drafted by scholars of the Academic Network on the European Social Charter and Social Rights (ANESC) is aimed at academic researchers studying social and economic rights in Europe and legal practitioners, civil society organisations, trade unions and state representatives engaging with the procedures of the European Committee of Social Rights. The text is composed of contributions from a large number of experts, bringing together senior and young scholars across different countries and legal traditions with expertise in social and economic rights and a commitment to enhancing the European system for regulating these rights.

The commentary offers 106 chapters, organised into eight volumes, some of which are focused on the substantive obligations of State Parties to the European Social Charter and the practice of the European Committee of Social Rights and others on the procedures that state representatives, international bodies and applicants must follow to engage with the Charter system.

Volume 3, covering Articles 11 to 19, examines critical ESC welfare rights for the general population and specific groups of people against the European Committee of Social Rights’ jurisprudence and other international standards.
The series will publish outstanding, original research, through monographs and edited collections, by scholars from around the world on the topic of law and literature understood in its broadest sense. Its aim is to offer scholarship from an international perspective on: 1. The law of literature (authors’ rights; intellectual property rights; copyright; censorship and pornography; defamation, libel, sedition or racism in the press; freedom of expression). 2. Law in literature (the law in literary works and authors). 3. Law as literature (questions of interpretation, rhetoric and hermeneutics). 4. Law and cinema.
In this work, one of Latin America’s most renowned legal philosophers conducts a comprehensive survey of the ancient Greek understanding of the law, drawing on texts by poets (Hesiod), philosophers (Anaximander), playwrights (Aeschylus and Sophocles), and historians (Herodotus and Thucydides). The book ends with a finely detailed analysis of the relationship between language and reality in Aristotle, and the emergence of the notion of the system and its subsequent introduction into Roman law.
The author’s in-depth study of all these aspects makes this volume an essential reference for philosophers, jurists, and historians.
