A Legal, Historical, and Political Analysis (2nd Edition)
Negotiating Legal Muslim Marriage in Pasuruan, East Java
In Aligning Religious Law and State Law: Negotiating Legal Muslim Marriage in Pasuruan, East Java, Muhammad Latif Fauzi investigates the extent to which the Indonesian state has regulated Muslim marriage and how a local community in Pasuruan, East Java has dealt with the regulation and gets their marriages recognised by the state.
Instead of reforming the marriage law which would only stir up controversies, the Indonesian government has used a citizens’ rights approach to control marriage to guide people towards compliance with the state legal framework.
The state officials in charge of marriage registration on the frontier levels are amenable to adopting a lenient approach towards regulations on marriage, which is the key to securing the functioning of state law.
The Asian Yearbook of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law aims to publish peer-reviewed scholarly articles and reviews as well as significant developments in human rights and humanitarian law. It examines international human rights and humanitarian law with a global reach, though its particular focus is on the Asian region.

Volume 7 of the Yearbook covers a wide range of topics, which have been organized along four central themes: Human Rights Protection and Erosion during the (Post-) COVID-19 Pandemic; Economic, Social and Environmental Rights Contestation and Evolution; Human Rights Protection of Vulnerable Persons; and Human Rights and Democratic Values under Threat.

This book presents the first comprehensive analysis of the risk of double compensation, often called double recovery, in the investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) system and proposes a practical solution to the problems which double compensation creates. The book responds to all the key questions that legal counsel, arbitrators, judges, and scholars facing the double compensation issue may have, including:
  • What requirements must be met for the problem to arise?
  • What have others said and done about the problem?
  • What is the most effective way to tackle it?
The proposed solution is based on currently available legal doctrines and practice and strikes a balance between investors’ and States’ interests.
An Examination under International Humanitarian Law, International Human Rights Law, and their Interplay
Author:
This book explores the duty to investigate potential violations of the law during armed conflict, and does so under international humanitarian law (IHL), international human rights law (IHRL), and their interplay. Through a meticulous comparative legal analysis, it maps out the scope and contents of investigative obligations. On the basis of general international law, it also develops and applies a novel and more broadly applicable step-by-step methodology for resolving issues of interplay between both legal regimes. In doing so, this study clarifies the scope of application and contents of investigative obligations under both legal regimes, as well as for situations to which both apply. The book finds that the oft-heard narrative that to require States to conduct human rights investigations during armed conflict would be wholly unrealistic in light of the realities of hostilities, is unfounded and in need of revision.

The UK has demonstrated its preference for intergovernmental rather than supranational relations. Nonetheless, 47 years of EU membership have involved unparalleled restrictions on its sovereignty, which have triggered the attempt to ‘take back control’ through its withdrawal. This book shows how the British left us with valuable lessons on the legal and procedural constraints to EU withdrawal, which have led to a post-Brexit Britain that continues bound by the important supranational features that have transcended its abandoned membership into its new relationship with the EU.
