Is the current structure of international law still adequate to solve global problems such as child labour? This book argues for more coherence between human rights and trade law, analysing the world trade law compatibility of topical trade measures on (forced) child labour such as the US Tariff Act of 1930 or the proposal for an EU Forced Labour Regulation, mainly under the GATT non-discrimination principles and the policy exceptions clause. Discussing theories such as constitutionalism and pluralism, Franziska Humbert develops the idea of a New Legal Humanism as a cognitive frame for the global legal order.
International Studies on Military Ethics is a peer reviewed series of monographs, theses and edited volumes. The series aims to promote the scholarly analysis and practical teaching of the complete spectrum of military ethics, to include the ethical aspects of the ius ad bellum, the ius in bello, the ius post bellum and the ethical aspects of international peacekeeping. It will, moreover, explore interactions with related fields of interest such as humanitarian assistance, international humanitarian law, emerging military technologies and human rights. The series will examine the ethical implications of decisions taken at all levels, from senior policy makers to individuals at the tactical level.

This series is published under the auspices of EURO-ISME, the European Branch of the International Society for Military Ethics.

This is a new series with an average of one volume per year.
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.
An Ethnography of Logics and Practices of Distribution in a Ugandan Refugee Camp
The open access publication of this book has been published with the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

At a time when rights are increasingly placed on the humanitarian agenda, this book provides a unique ethnographic account of the dynamics of aid to disabled people in a Ugandan refugee camp. By unraveling the complexities of social, material and institutional interdependencies, the author invites us to rethink conventional notions of dependence and vulnerability. Exploring issues of personhood as they relate to the exchange of material goods and care, the book offers a thought-provoking perspective on the seemingly promising shift towards a rights-based approach. A compelling read for anyone seeking to reshape the humanitarian agenda.

This collection of chapters tracks and explains the impact of the nine core United Nations human rights treaties in 20 selected countries, four from each of the five UN regions. Researchers based in each of these countries were responsible for the chapters, in which they assess the influence of the treaties and treaty body recommendations on legislation, policies, court decisions and practices. By covering the 20 years between July 1999 and June 2019, this book updates a study done 20 years ago.
