Sustainable Development Goals - Law, Theory and Implementation (Hardcover): Duncan French, Louis J. Kotze Sustainable Development Goals - Law, Theory and Implementation (Hardcover)
Duncan French, Louis J. Kotze
R2,886 Discovery Miles 28 860 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Building on the previously established Millennium Development Goals, which ran from 2000-2015, the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide the UN with a roadmap for development until 2030. This topical book explores the associated legal and normative implications of these SDGs, which in themselves are not legally binding. The 17 goals and 169 targets of the SDGs cover areas as crucial as poverty reduction, climate change, clean water and access to justice. Combining both thematic and goal-specific analysis, expert contributors establish the relevance not just of international law, but also of a broader range of normative frameworks including constitutional norms, domestic regulatory law and human rights. Connecting the SDGs to wider debates in international law and politics, this book ultimately demonstrates that law has an important constitutive and instrumental role to play in both implemention and analysis. The first of its kind to offer a specific focus on the relationship between law and the SDGs, this much-needed book will prove invaluable for scholars in the field of international sustainable development. Its insightful observations will also provide food for thought for both related international organizations and national government officials.

Statehood and Self-Determination - Reconciling Tradition and Modernity in International Law (Paperback): Duncan French Statehood and Self-Determination - Reconciling Tradition and Modernity in International Law (Paperback)
Duncan French
R927 Discovery Miles 9 270 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The concepts of statehood and self-determination provide the normative structure on which the international legal order is ultimately premised. As a system of law founded upon the issue of territorial control, ascertaining and determining which entities are entitled to the privileges of statehood continues to be one of the most difficult and complex issues. Moreover, although the process of decolonisation is almost complete, the principle of self-determination has raised new challenges for the metropolitan territories of established states, including the extent to which 'internal' self-determination guarantees additional rights for minority and other groups. As the controversies surrounding remedial secession have revealed, the territorial integrity of a state can be questioned if there are serious and persistent breaches of a people's human rights. This volume brings together such debates to reflect further on the current state of international law regarding these fundamental issues.

Linkages and Boundaries in Private and Public International Law (Paperback): Veronica Ruiz Abou-Nigm, Kasey Mccall-Smith,... Linkages and Boundaries in Private and Public International Law (Paperback)
Veronica Ruiz Abou-Nigm, Kasey Mccall-Smith, Duncan French
R1,151 Discovery Miles 11 510 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Do private and public international law coincide in their underlying objectives when it comes to their respective contribution to the realisation of global values? How do they work together towards the consistency and efficiency of the international legal order? This edited collection sets out a vision: to serve modern society, the international legal order cannot be defined as public or private. Linkages and Boundaries focuses on the interface between private and public international law and the synergies that a joint approach brings to topical issues, such as corporate social responsibility and environmental law, as well as foundational concepts such as international jurisdiction, state sovereignty and party autonomy. The book showcases the dynamic interaction between the two disciplines, with a view to contribute to a dialogue that is still only in the early stages of delivering its full potential. The collection explores ways to deepen the dialogue between these two distinct but interrelated disciplines, with a view to further their progression towards a more integrated and holistic approach to legal problems that require an international approach. The book brings together well-known experts and new voices from both disciplines and from a wide range of jurisdictions in Europe, North America and South America.

Criminological and Legal Consequences of Climate Change (Hardcover, New): Stephen Farrall, Tawhida Ahmed, Duncan French Criminological and Legal Consequences of Climate Change (Hardcover, New)
Stephen Farrall, Tawhida Ahmed, Duncan French
R1,839 Discovery Miles 18 390 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This edited collection, the result of an international seminar held at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law, Onati, Spain in 2010, explores the potential legal and criminological consequences of climate change, both domestically and for the international community. A novel feature of the book is the consideration given to the potential synergies between the two disciplinary foci, thus to encourage among legal scholars and criminologists not only an analysis of the consequences of climate change from these perspectives but to bring these fields together to provide a unique, inter-disciplinary exploration of the ways in which climate change does, or could, impact on our societies. Such an inter-disciplinary approach is necessary given that climate change is a multifaceted phenomenon and one which is intimately linked across disciplines. To study this topic from the point of view of a single social science discipline restricts our understanding of the societal consequences of climate change. It is hoped that this edited collection will identify emerging areas of concern, illuminate areas for further research and, most of all, encourage future academic discussion on this most critical of issues.

International Law and Dispute Settlement - New Problems and Techniques (Paperback): Duncan French, Matthew Saul, Nigel D. White International Law and Dispute Settlement - New Problems and Techniques (Paperback)
Duncan French, Matthew Saul, Nigel D. White
R1,339 Discovery Miles 13 390 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

International dispute settlement plays a fundamental role in maintaining the fabric of the international legal order, reflecting the desire of States, and increasingly non-State actors, to resolve their differences through international dispute procedures and other legal mechanisms. This edited collection focuses upon the growth and complexity of such legal methods, which includes judicial settlement (courts and tribunals), arbitration and other legal (or what might be termed 'extra-legal') means (international organisations, committees, inspection panels, and ombudsmen). In this important collection, such mechanisms are compared and evaluated side-by-side to provide, in one volume, a detailed and analytical account of the current framework. Ranging from key conceptual issues of proliferation of legal mechanisms and the associated risks of fragmentation through to innovations in dispute settlement mechanisms in many topical areas of international law, including international trade law, collective security law and regional law, this collection, written by leading international lawyers, provides a major study in the ongoing trends and emerging problems in this crucial area of international law. This edited collection is published to mark the retirement of Professor John Merrills, Emeritus Professor of International Law, University of Sheffield, who has written widely on international law and human rights law, but is probably best known for his work on the settlement of international disputes, evidenced by the enduring appeal of his leading text International Dispute Settlement, now in its fourth edition.

Global Justice and Sustainable Development (Hardcover): Duncan French Global Justice and Sustainable Development (Hardcover)
Duncan French
R4,203 Discovery Miles 42 030 Out of stock

In recognising the significant role international law can play in supporting the objectives of justice and sustainable development, "Global Justice and Sustainable Development" provides a wide-ranging analysis of some of the most fundamental challenges facing global society. In particular, the volume seeks to consider the synergies between sustainable development and global justice two notions that are simultaneously hugely important and, in equal measure, enormously contentious within both international law and international relations. Organized in a three-part structure, "Global Justice and Sustainable Development" revisits some of the basic assumptions on which the general principles are built, considers the implications for differing aspects of international law, and focuses on national and regional approaches.
