June 02, 2018

Transition from conflict to durable peace, defined as more than merely an absence of hostilities, is without the doubt a key priority for states emerging from conflicts and situations of gross human rights violations. International law plays a major part in this complex process. However, feminist international lawyers have argued that the discipline of international law has been largely developed by men and in ways which reflect male experiences, therefore legitimising women’s unequal position both in the context of international law as well as in national and international affairs.

rings Delaware becomes first state to outlaw underage marriage     

Source: Jurist

May 11, 2018

-United States-

[JURIST] Delaware became the first state in the nation to completely ban marriage for anyone under 18 on Wednesday.

Governor John Carney [official website] signed House Bill 337 [materials] into law, which went into effect immediately. The law makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get married, regardless of parental approval. Under previous law [AP report], anyone could marry with a judge’s approval.

Critics of the bill opine that it will clash with religion traditions that condone child marriages. Supporters contend that the bill is a necessary step in ending human trafficking as children who marry lack standing to apply for a divorce. Additionally, married children are more likely to drop out of school or become victims of abuse and domestic violence.

According to the Human Rights Watch (HRW) [advocacy website], child marriage is surprisingly common [HRW report] in the US. While most states have a minimum marrying age of 18, all states allow for exceptions, including parental permission and pregnancy. Between the years 2000 and 2010, more than 167,000 children were married in the US, most of them girls to older men.

Recently, several states, including Florida, New York, Virginia and Texas, have tightened marriage laws, but all still allow for exceptions. Several countries, including the US, around the world have set a target for the year 2030 to end all child marriage under the UN Sustainable Development Goals [program website].

El Tribunal de Justicia de la Unión Europea (TJUE) ha dictaminado que los agentes comerciales pueden ser indemnizados por terminación de un contrato aunque dicho fin se produzca durante el periodo de prueba. En la sentencia por la que resuelve el asunto C-645/16, el TJUE considera queestablecer un periodo de prueba dentro del contrato entra dentro de la libertad contractual de las partes, por lo que puede aplicarse la Directiva europeaque regula la indemnización o reparación del prejuicio por finalización de contrato de los agentes comerciales.
