Experta insta a combatir pobreza para garantizar acceso a la justicia

Posted on Actualizado enn

15 de octubre, 2012 – Las personas más pobres de la sociedad no tienen un acceso adecuado a la justicia, indicó hoy la relatora especial de la ONU sobre pobreza extrema.

En vísperas de la celebración del Día Internacional para la Erradicación de la Pobreza, que se celebra el 17 de octubre, Magdalena Sepúlveda afirmó que los más vulnerables tienen que superar grandes obstáculos para acceder a los tribunales y reclamar sus derechos.

“Sin acceso a la justicia, los más pobres no pueden conocer y reclamar sus derechos humanos o denunciar crímenes, abusos o violaciones que han sufrido”, lamentó Sepúlveda. Leer el resto de esta entrada »


UN moves ahead with efforts to reinforce rule of law worldwide

Posted on Actualizado enn

10 October 2012 – With its many years of experience and its entrenched neutrality, the United Nations is ideally placed to help countries establish the rule of law, a vital factor in post-conflict reconstruction, overall development and enforcing fundamental rights, a top UN official said today.

“Newly-constituted governments are looking to the United Nations for advice and assistance in constitution-making processes, reforming justice and security institutions and dealing with legacies of atrocities,” Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson told the General Assembly committee that deals with international legal matters, also known as the Sixth Committee.

“The United Nations has a comparative advantage in providing this assistance,” Mr. Eliasson stressed, noting that it is currently helping 150 Member States on various aspects of the rule of law. “We have a broad range of experience dating back many years. The UN brings neutrality and the weight of the international community to the work. We are also using out convening power to advance the issues and the debate.” Leer el resto de esta entrada »

Burri & Cottier: Trade Governance in the Digital Age

Posted on Actualizado enn

Mira Burri (Univ. of Bern – World Trade Institute) & Thomas Cottier (Univ. of Bern – World Trade Institute) have published Trade Governance in the Digital Age (Cambridge 2012). The table of contents is here. Here’s the abstract:

The development of new digital technologies has resulted in significant transformations in daily life, from the arrival of online shopping to more fundamental changes in the ways we work and communicate. Many of these changes raise questions that transcend market access and liberalisation, and demand cooperation and coherent regulatory design. International trade regulation has hitherto not reacted in a forward-looking manner to the digital revolution and, particularly at the multilateral level, legal engineering has yielded few tangible results.

Call for Submissions: The Law and Politics of Indigenous Peoples in International Law

Posted on Actualizado enn

The Goettingen Journal of International Law has issued a call for submissions for a special issue on “The Law and Politics of Indigenous Peoples in International Law.” Here’s the call:

Vol. 5, Issue No. 1 of the Goettingen Journal of International Law will include a focus on the law and politics of indigenous peoples in international law.

Indigenous peoples received increasing public and scholarly attention over the last decades. It has been a unique journey from the colonial history to the beginning of their political presence in the United Nations since the 1970s to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2007. The UN’s International Year for the World’s Indigenous Peoples in 1993 as well as the following decades of the world’s indigenous peoples from 1995 to 2004 and 2006 to 2015 prove the ongoing need to attend to indigenous peoples’ interests.

Global Administrative Law, the Casebook, 3rd edition

Posted on Actualizado enn

GAL CASEBOOK, 3rd edition, 2012
edited by Sabino Cassese, Bruno Carotti, Lorenzo Casini, Eleonora Cavalieri, and Euan MacDonald
with the collaboration of Marco Macchia and Mario Savino

This book is an attempt to analyse global administrative law through the elaboration and examination of a number of different cases and case-studies. The architecture of its contents mirrors the characteristics of this field. In order to fully grasp global administrative law, however, it is important also to have a sound understanding of the broader governance context in which it is situated. This volume attempts to provide this also.
