  • Socializing Statesby Ryan Goodman; Derek Jinks

    Oxford University Press, USA 2013; US$ 28.99

    The role of international law in global politics is as poorly understood as it is important. But how can the international legal regime encourage states to respect human rights? Given that international law lacks a centralized enforcement mechanism, it is not obvious how this law matters at all, and how it might change the behavior or preferences of... more...

  • The Access of Individuals to International Justiceby Antônio Augusto Cançado Trindade

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 59.99

    This book contends that the right of access to justice (at national and international levels) constitutes a basic cornerstone of the international protection of human rights, and conforms a true right to the Law.

  • Norms, Interests, and Valuesby Henning Glaser

    Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft 2015; US$ 106.56

    Alle Verfassungsordnungen beruhen notwendigerweise auf einem gewissen Konsens, schließen immer aber auch Konflikte und den produktiven Umgang mit ihnen mit ein.

Gerät die Ausbalancierung von Konflikt und Konsens und ihre Reproduktion durch... more...

  • Inclusion and Exclusion in Competitive Sportby Seema Patel

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 145.00

    Society is obsessed with categorising and treating individuals and groups according to their physical and non-physical differences, such as sex, gender, disability and race. This treatment can lead to the inclusion or exclusion of an individual from the tangible and intangible benefits of society. Where this practice becomes discriminatory, legal... more...

  • Secrecy, Law and Societyby Greg Martin; Rebecca Scott Bray; Miiko Kumar

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 125.00

    Commentators have shown how a ?culture of security? ushered in after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 has involved exceptional legal measures and increased recourse to secrecy on the basis of protecting public safety and safeguarding national security. In this context, scholars have largely been preoccupied with the ways that increased security... more...
