Children and the Environment offers a unique perspective on the legal protection of children from environmental degradation, a global topic of increasing significance. An original in recent literature, the book calls for viewing children as central in environmental decision-making and presents law and policy proposals, based on current international and regional trends, on topics such as human rights, climate change and the protection from toxics. Drawn from the author’s extensive research and practical experience, it will appeal to policy makers, academics, youth activists, and all involved in giving children a healthier and more sustainable environment.

This book analyses the domestic application of international law, with a particular focus on the concept of direct applicability. It critically examines the relevant doctrine and practice and proposes a new analytical framework. It argues that international law is presumed to be directly applicable, that the criteria for direct applicability are grounds to exclude rather than establish direct applicability, and that the positive intent of the parties should not be a criterion. It contends that direct applicability is a question of domestic law and that domestic legal force is a prerequisite for direct applicability. It also advocates a relative approach.

In this book, Niovi Vavoula examines the privacy challenges raised by the establishment, operation and reconfiguration of EU-wide information systems that store personal data, including biometrics, of different categories of third-country nationals that may be used for various immigration related and law enforcement purposes. The monograph analyses both the currently operational databases – Schengen Information System (SIS), Visa Information System (VIS) and Eurodac – and forthcoming systems – Entry/Exit System (EES), European Travel Information and Authorisation Systems (ETIAS) and European Criminal Record Information System for Third-Country Nationals (ECRIS-TCN) – as well as their future interoperability. To assess the compatibility of legal instruments governing information systems and their interoperability with the right to respect for private life, the author calls for the centrality of privacy as the appropriate lens through which instruments involving the processing of personal data should be viewed and offers a typology of privacy standards based on relevant case law by the Strasbourg and Luxemburg Courts.
"This is a ground-breaking book, the first comprehensive analysis of the growing interrelationship between immigration law and privacy law. The book is essential reading for academics, policy makers and legal practitioners working in these fields, and will lead in informing the debate on the relationship between security and human rights in Europe. Rigorous and ambitious, the book will become a reference point in the field."
