Impunity, human rights, and democracy : Chile and Argentina, 1990-2005 / Thomas C. Wright.

Location: lax
Call #: JC599.C5 W75 2014
Publisher:


Universal human rights standards were adopted in 1948, but in the 1970s and 1980s, violent dictatorships in Argentina and Chile flagrantly defied the new protocols. Chilean general Augusto Pinochet and the Argentine military employed state terrorism in their quest to eradicate Marxism and other forms of "subversion." Pinochet constructed an iron shield of impunity for himself and the military in Chile, while in Argentina, military pressure resulted in laws preventing prosecution for past human rights violations. When democracy was reestablished in both countries by 1990, justice for crimes against humanity seemed beyond reach.Thomas C. Wright examines how persistent advocacy by domestic and international human rights groups, evolving legal environments, unanticipated events that impacted public opinion, and eventual changes in military leadership led to a situation unique in the world--the stripping of impunity not only from a select number of commanders of the repression but from all those involved in state terrorism in Chile and Argentina.

Is judicial review an effective and appropriate way to regulate counter-terrorism measures?

Others claim that subjecting counter-terrorism measures to judicial review is crucial for maintaining a jurisdiction's principles of constitutionalism.

Deference in international courts and tribunals : standard of review and margin of appreciation / edited by Lukasz Gruszczynski and Wouter Werner.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ6250 .D44 2014
Publisher:


International courts and tribunals are often asked to review decisions originally made by domestic decision-makers. This can often be a source of tension, as the international courts and tribunals need to judge how far to defer to the original decisions of the national bodies. As international courts and tribunals have proliferated, different courts have applied differing levels of deference to those originial decisions, which can lead to a fragmentation ininternational law. International courts in such positions rely on two key doctrines: the standard of review and the margin of appreciation. Find out more (catalog link)

Forgotten trials of the Holocaust / Michael J. Bazyler and Frank M. Tuerkheimer.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ1174.5 .B39 2014
Publisher:


In the wake of the Second World War, how were the Allies to respond to the enormous crime of the Holocaust? Even in an ideal world, it would have been impossible to bring all the perpetrators to trial. Nevertheless, an attempt was made to prosecute some. Most people have heard of the Nuremberg trial and the Eichmann trial, though they probably have not heard of the Kharkov Trial - the first trial of Germans for Nazi-era crimes - or even the Dachau Trials, in which war criminals were prosecuted by the American military personnel on the former concentration camp grounds. This book uncovers ten 'forgotten trials' of the Holocaust, selected from the many Nazi trials that have taken place over the course of the last seven decades. Find out more (catalog link)

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)

Each chapter addresses a specific operational issue, including the national right of self-defense, military targeting and the use of drones, detention, interrogation, trial by military commission of captured terrorist operatives, and the impact of battlefield perspectives on counter-terror military operations, while illustrating how the law of armed conflict influences resolution of that issue.

Defensive killing / Helen Frowe.

Location: lax
Call #: K5087.S4 F76 2014
Publisher:


Most people believe that it is sometimes morally permissible for a person to use force to defend herself or others against harm. In Defensive Killing, Helen Frowe offers a detailed exploration of when and why the use of such force is permissible. She begins by considering the use of force between individuals, investigating both the circumstances under which an attacker forfeits her right not to be harmed, and the distinct question of when it is all-things-considered permissible to use force against an attacker. Frowe then extends this enquiry to war, defending the view that we should judge the ethics of killing in war by the moral rules that govern killing between individuals. Find out more (catalog link)
