EU agricultural law / Jens Hartig Danielsen.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6605 .D36 2013
Publisher:


The Common Agricultural Policy is one of the most developed of the common policies of the EU and has been a model for many of the general principles of EU Law. To date, discussion of the policy has centred on the political and financial problems that have arisen, rather than the legal aspectsof the policy. This book examines those legal aspects through the evolution of the CAP. It traces the legal transformation of the CAP from a market and price-driven policy towards its current emphasis on the multifunctionality of European agriculture and the development of a common food policy,incorporating food safety and quality, animal health and welfare and the protection of the environment.

Elephant treaties : the colonial legacy of the biodiversity crisis / Rachelle Adam.

Location: lax
Call #: K3488 .A93 2014
Publisher:


Based on a legal history of international biodiversity treaties from the late nineteenth century to the present, Rachelle Adam argues that today's biodiversity crisis is rooted in European colonial history, especially in the conservation treaties that the colonial powers (and their non-governmental counterparts) negotiated to protect Africa's big-game animals. Reflecting on the colonial past--particularly on efforts to manage the commerce in elephant ivory--Adam sheds light on why more recent attempts to arrest the decline in biodiversity by way of international agreement have failed. This volume will spur a rethinking of such agreements and trigger a search for alternatives outside of existing international structures. Find out more (catalog link)

Location: lax
Call #: KZA1689 .O93 2013
Publisher:


Alex G. Oude Elferink's detailed analysis of the negotiations between Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands concerning the delimitation of their continental shelf in the North Sea makes use of the full range of government archives in these three States. He looks at the role of international law in policy formulation and negotiations, and explores the legal context, political considerations and, in particular, oil interests which fed into these processes. He also explains why the parties decided to submit their disputes to the International Court of Justice and looks at the preparation of their pleadings and litigation strategy before the Court. The analysis shows how Denmark and The Netherlands were able to avoid the full impact of the implications of the Court's judgment by sidestepping legal arguments and insisting instead on political considerations.

Ecological governance : reappraising law's role in protecting ecosystem functionality / Olivia Woolley.

Location: lax
Call #: K3585 .W66 2014
Publisher:


Ecological degradation has been an object of concern for the international community since the early 1970s, but legal approaches that have been employed to improve the protection of ecosystems have failed to halt this decline. Ecological Governance explores how the law should respond to this rapid global deterioration of ecosystems by examining the foundational scientific and ethical considerations for designing laws that are effective for ecological protection. Based on these analyses, it argues that developed states should prioritise the reduction of the ecological stresses for which they are responsible in decision-making on their future courses. The author also proposes structures for governance and associated legal frameworks that would enable the formulation and implementation of policies for ecological sustainability.

Legal regime of straits : contemporary challenges and solutions / Hugo Caminos, Vincent P. Cogliati-Bantz.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ3760 .C36 2014
Publisher:


The right of transit passage in straits and the analogous right of archipelagic sealanes passage in archipelagic states, negotiated in the 1970s and embodied in the 1982 UNCLOS, sought to approximate the freedom of navigation and overflight while expressly recognising the sovereignty or jurisdiction of the coastal state over the waters concerned. However, the allocation of rights and duties of the coastal state and third states is open to interpretation. Recent developments in state practice, such as Australia's requirement of compulsory pilotage in the Torres Strait, the bridge across the Great Belt and the proposals for a bridge across the Strait of Messina, the enhanced environmental standards applicable in the Strait of Bonifacio and Canada's claims over the Arctic Route, make it necessary to reassess the whole common law of straits. The Legal Regime of Straits examines the complex relationship between the coastal state and the international community. Find out more (catalog link)
