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.
Volume 1: Reports of the Trials: Morotai, Wewak, Labuan and Darwin
Volume Editors: and
This is the first volume of a new 5-volume reference work which rectifies a lamentable gap in access to rich war crimes trial jurisprudence from the post-World War II era. The 5 volumes will compile a comprehensive and systematic collection of Law Reports of the 300 trials by Australian Military Courts held between 1945 and 1951. Those trials were held in eight locations and reports of the trials are grouped according to location. To introduce each trial location, a contextual essay provides background analysis explaining why the particular trials were conducted in that location.

This first volume includes reports for each of the 46 trials conducted in Morotai, Wewak, Labuan and Darwin in 1945-46. Given the lack of written reasons for judgment, these law reports draw extensively on the trial transcripts, including a description of prosecution and defence arguments, relevant legal issues, judgments and sentences. Launched at a propitious time in which Australia is engaged in a significant criminal investigation of alleged war crimes in Afghanistan, the reference work provides a rich and unrivalled resource and will be of lasting value both within Australia and outside it amongst scholars of the history of World War II and the development of international criminal law as well as to practitioners involved in contemporary war crimes trials. Many other Allied nations conducted their own military trials in both the European and Pacific theatres post-WWII, and the Australian experience, documented in these unique volumes, offers an important template for other national initiatives of this kind.
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 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.
