The Interaction Between World Trade Organisation (WTO) Law and External International Law

"International legal scholarship is concerned with the fragmentation of international law into specialised systems such as trade, environment and human rights. Fragmentation raises questions about the inter-systemic interaction between the various specialised systems of international law. In the discourse on WTO law, three 'propositions' 'openness', 'closure' and 'privileged' have been put forward to explain the interaction between WTO law and external law. This book engages with these debates about how international economic law interacts with other bodies of international law. Using ideas and theories from other spheres including sociology, literature and art, the book develops a new way of thinking about how WTO law interacts with external international law through the conceptual framework of 'constrained openness'. The book argues that constrained openness offers a more nuanced way to think about how WTO law interacts with external law"--

The second edition of this comprehensive guide to family law, presents everything an undergraduate family law student needs in one volume. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors offer a detailed and authoritative exposition of family law illustrated by materials carefully selected from a wide range of sources. The book has two principal aims: to provide readers with a thorough understanding of the law relating to the family, and to do so in a way that stimulates critical reflection on that law. Readers are encouraged to consider how and why the law has developed as it has, what policies it is seeking to pursue, whether it achieves the right balance between the rights and interests of individual family members and the wider public interest, and how it operates in practice. The text is supported by a substantial Online Resource Centre, which features regular updates on the law, supplementary materials, further reading suggestions, and study aids. The ORC also features two chapters, Introduction to Family Law, and Fundamental principles in the law relating to children.

This book considers some of the most notable aspects of the legal response to the "war on terror" post- 9/11 and the use of technology to support them. It examines the shift from a criminal justice response to the creation of a parallel preventive system running in tandem with it. This system has tended to veer away from the commission of criminal offences or adherence to ordinary criminal justice safeguards. Such a preventive strategy relies on targeting terrorist suspects – those who it is thought may in future commit terrorist acts – and curbing their actions with the aim of preventing terrorist activity before it occurs. The book further considers the role that surveillance plays in the counter-terrorist efforts of state or non-state actors. It also evaluates the counter-productive effects that many of these measures have had. This book was originally published as a special issue of International Review of Law Computers & Technology.

The third edition of this work on family law, comprising text, cases and materials, provides not only an explication of legal principle but also explores, primarily from a feminist perspective, some of the assumptions about, and constructions of, gender, sexual orientation, class and culture that underlie the law. It examines the ideology of the family and, in particular, the role of the law in contributing to and reproducing that ideology. Structured around the themes of equality, welfare, and family privacy, the book aims to offer the benefits of a textbook while also giving students a wide-ranging set of materials for classroom discussion. As well as providing a firm grounding in family law, the text sets the law in its social and historical context and encourages a critical approach by students to the subject. It provides an ideal introduction to family law for undergraduates, but will be equally helpful for postgraduate students of family law for whom it provides a challenging selection of materials set within a theoretical framework rich in ideas and arguments. Review of the second edition: 'Diduck and Kaganas examine legal developments to shed light on society, principally by investigating the ways in which family law constructs and regulates family life and responsibilities. Theirs is an important and ambitious book that aims ultimately at a feminist restatement of family law. .... [T]he [book] is written and referenced in such depth that it is a useful resource for legal as well as social science researchers at all levels, whether looking for theoretical inspiration or drawing up a literature review. The range of diverse sources that Diduck and Kaganas draw on is impressive: they seem to have included every bit of material that helps feminists make sense of family law. There is a well-pitched selection of further reading of such material at the end of each chapter. What's more, they undersell themselves by describing their book as "Text, Cases and Materials", because they have woven by far the largest proportion of the cases and materials into the text.' Helen Reece, Times Higher Education, May 2007. Reviews of first edition: 'A stimulating work which attempts to situate family law in its social, historical and political context. Its appeal should not be confined to family law students, as its commitment to a critical and analytical approach offers insights and ideas with broader significance.' Mary Childs, Child and Family Law Quarterly, September 2002 'The arguments are provocative, the analysis is stimulating and the materials amassed strongly support the authors' aim to question the "axiomatic status of what is traditionally designated as the family".' Fiona E Raitt, Infant and Child Development, September 2002 'It is not often that one can say of a textbook in Law that it "makes interesting reading" with quite the enthusiasm that can be expressed for this text. This new publication offers something that few textbooks seem to offer - a book you CAN open up virtually anywhere and find an interesting piece on almost any aspect of the broad family law spectrum.' Penny Booth, The Law Teacher, September 2002 'All the major themes in feminist and constructionist perspectives in family law are presented together with a wealth of readings and extensive references. As a teaching manual, it is excellent - a coherent feminist perspective across the entire range of family law' Marty Slaughter, Feminist Legal Studies, July 2003

Here is a unique analysis and discussion of the working reality of the British constitution, combined with an enlightening and extremely varied selection of materials. This broad, contextual approach will be of immeasurable value to students of law, public administration, government and politics, as it presents a variety of differing viewpoints, so as to reveal and illuminate the diverse elements of the constitutional structure within which British governments exercise their powers. The book emphasizes the character of the constitution as the outcome of politics, public administration and the practice of government, as much as of courts and legislators. It also succeeds in demonstrating how the constitution is not a fixed set of rules, but a continuous, volatile clash of arguments and evolving political behaviour, its only anchorage to be found in certain traditional values and democratic principles. The amount of fresh material and the extent of the revisions throughout this new edition is indicative of the constant fluidity of the constitution. It covers the changes wrought by 'external forces', including the Maastricht Treaty and the expansive influence of the European Convention on Human Rights, as well as domestic developments flowing from new government initiatives, an increasingly venturesome judiciary and mounting pressures for constitutional reform. Greater emphasis is placed on individual rights and civil liberties with a new section on political freedoms and a chapter on remedies against public authorities, including extended coverage of judicial review. These revisions and the inclusion of new materials result in this edition providing even better coverage of undergraduate courses in public law.
