Guaranteeing Global Data Transfers in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice
This book assesses whether the implementation of transborder interoperable solutions aligns with the European Union's standards and rules on personal data transfer. It specifically examines the principles and values enshrined in the founding Treaties that steer the EU’s external activities as a global actor. It will help you understand the privacy and data protection standards the EU must uphold when pursuing its objectives of freedom, security, and justice externally. You’ll learn about the limits on the processing of personal data by large-scale IT systems in the areas of freedom, security, and justice, and explore the full scope of the 2019 interoperability regulations, n. 817 and 818. Also, the volume offers a series of diagrams, tables, and figures that will make your reading as smooth as possible.
The Constitutional Odysseys of Afghanistan, Egypt, and Iraq and the Fate of the Middle East
Author:
The volume compares the efforts to instil the values and practices of the rule of law in the Middle East in the early twenty-first century with their disappointing performances in terms of safety, human rights, and, especially, religious freedom. It zooms in on Afghanistan, Egypt, and Iraq to argue that international interventions and local initiatives underestimated the ethno-religious mosaic of these countries and their political and constitutional culture.
The standard notion of the rule of law values individualism, equality, rights, and courts, which hardly fit the makeup of the Middle East. Securing stability and protecting religious freedom in the region requires compromising on the rule of law; the consociational model of constitutionalism would have better chances of achieving them.
This book aims to contribute to the global observance of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), 1948. It considers nature and development of international human rights law. It considers how human rights interact with other regimes such as intellectual property, foreign direct investment, corporate social responsibility, international environmental law, humanitarian law, refugee law, economic law, and criminal law. The book then presents human rights of vulnerable populations and sets out contemporary challenges and issues relating to human rights, such as globalisation, the effects of COVID-19, religion, nationality, and the implementation of economic, social, and cultural rights.

The New Zealand Yearbook of International Law is an annual, internationally refereed publication whose purpose is to provide a yearly reference for legal materials and critical commentary on issues of international law. The Yearbook also serves as a valuable tool to identify trends, state practice, and policies in the development of international law in New Zealand, the Pacific region, the Southern Ocean, and Antarctica, and to generate scholarship in those fields. In addition to presenting peer-reviewed legal research, the Yearbook contains an annual ‘Year-in-Review’ that covers developments in international law of particular interest to New Zealand, and a dedicated section on the South Pacific.

This Yearbook covers the period 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022.

This book unlocks the look, sound, smell, taste, and feel of justice for massive human rights abuses. Twenty-nine expert authors examine the dynamics of the five human senses in how atrocity is perceived, remembered, and condemned. This book is chockful of images. It serves up remarkably diverse content. It treks around the globe: from Pacific war crimes trials in the aftermath of the Second World War to Holocaust proceedings in contemporary Germany, France, and Israel; from absurd show trials in Communist Czechoslovakia to international courtrooms in Arusha, Phnom Penh, and The Hague. Readers embark on a journey that transcends myriad dimensions, including photographic representations of grandfatherly old torturers in Argentina, narco-trafficking in Mexico, colonialisation in India, disinformation and misinformation pixelated in cyberspace, environmental degradation in Cambodia, militarism in Northern Ireland, and civil rights activism in Atlanta. Sights, Sounds, and Sensibilities of Atrocity Prosecutions reimagines what an atrocity means, reconsiders what drives the manufacture of law, and reboots the role of courtrooms and other mechanisms in the pursuit of justice. It unveils how law translates sensory experience into its procedures and institutions, and how humanistic inputs shape perceptions of right and wrong. This book thereby offers a refreshing primer on the underappreciated role of aesthetics, time, and emotion in the world of law.

Drumbl and Fournet have done us all a great service in knitting together – in a single, powerfully imagined, volume – these essays about how we might experience the institutionalisation of judgment in atrocity trials.

Contributions to this volume offer a unique opportunity to delve into law’s hidden landscape using the primary reality of the five senses.

The Chinese Yearbook of Human Rights is a forum for academic exchange between China and the international community in the field of human rights. It publishes peer reviewed articles by scholars and practitioners from both within and outside China on human rights issues, from the perspectives of law, philosophy, political science, history, international relations and other relevant academic disciplines.
The Yearbook was originally founded in cooperation with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, but fell silent from 2008 onwards. It now has a new editorial team, consisting of internationally based human rights scholars and a team of editors at the Institute for Human Rights of the China University of Political Science and Law and the Center for Human Rights Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Volume 6, 2024 focuses on the topical issues of the interpretation and implementation of the right to peace, the right to work, and the right to education. Several other issues, such as international human rights mechanisms, business and human rights, climate change litigation, poverty alleviation, and anti-domestic violence, are also covered.
