              Human Rights in the Asia-Pacific Region: Towards Institution Building
               

              Human Rights in the Asia-Pacific Region: Towards Institution Building (Hardback)

              The Asia-Pacific region is known for having one of the least developed institutional mechanisms for protecting human rights. This edited collection makes a timely and distinctive contribution to contemporary debates about strengthening the institutional protection of human rights... in the Asia-Pacific region, in the wake of ASEANa (TM)s announcement in 2009 of an ASEAN regional human rights mechanism. Drawing together leading scholarly voices including Surya Deva, V T Thamilmaran, Tom Zwart and Catherine Renshaw, the book focuses on the systemic issue of institutionalizing human rights protection in the Asia-Pacific. It critically examines the prospects for deepening and widening the institutionalization of human rights monitoring in the region, challenging the orthodox scepticism about whether Asia is ready for stronger institutions. The volume analyses the impediments to institutions, whilst questioning the need for them. The collection provides a range of perspectives on the issues and many of the chapter bring a variety of interdisciplinary insights to bear. As such, the collection will be of interest to a scholarly and student audience in law, as well as to readers in international relations, political science, Asian studies, and human rights.

              The Mekong: A Socio-legal Approach to River Basin Development
               

              The Mekong: A Socio-legal Approach to River Basin Development (Hardback)

              An international river basin is an ecological system, an economic thoroughfare, a geographical area, a font of life and livelihoods, a geopolitical network and, often, a cultural icon. It is also a socio-legal phenomenon. This book is the first detailed study of an international ...river basin from a socio-legal perspective. The Mekong River Basin, which sustains approximately 70 million people across Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, provides a prime example of the socio-legal complexities of governing a transboundary river basin. The authors describe the wide range of uses being made of legal doctrine and legal argument in ongoing disputes surrounding hydropower development in the Mekong River Basin, putting to rest lingering caricatures of a single, 'ASEAN' way of navigating conflict. They call into question some of the common assumptions concerning the relationship between law and development. The book identifies previously unacknowledged issues of strategic significance in conflicts surrounding water governance in the Mekong region and suggests fruitful new ways of approaching such conflicts. It also sheds light on important questions concerning the global hybridization or cross-over of public and private power and its ramifications for water governance. With the UN predicting that, by 2025, two-thirds of the world's population could be living under water-stressed conditions, these issues could not be more pressing.

              Human Rights in Asia and the Pacific
               

              Human Rights in Asia and the Pacific (Hardback, Contains 4 Hardbacks)

              Edited by Saul, Ben; Renshaw, Catherine

              While the Asia Pacific region is one of the world's largest by population size, it has long been known for having the least developed regional and national institutional mechanisms for protecting human rights, particularly compared to the well-developed systems in Europe, the Ame...ricas, and increasingly in Africa. Asia has the least uptake of human rights treaties of any region in the world, and serious human rights violations are documented as occurring in numerous countries in the region. Asia has also presented conceptual challenges to the universality of international human rights, for instance through arguments about 'Asian values' (the collective over the individual, the economic over the political, compromise over adjudication) being inconsistent with western notions of rights. At the same time, innovative human rights practices and protections have been developed in some jurisdictions, and increasingly at the transnational level. There is increasing scholarly and practitioner interest in human rights in the Asia and Pacific regions, driven in part by recent efforts by the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) to enhance human rights protections in those sub-regions. This edited collection makes a timely and distinctive contribution to the literature by bringing together the leading scholars in the field who have written across the gamut of thematic human rights issues in Asia and the Pacific. A particular strength of the collection is its inclusion of significant Asian and Pacific authors, who are sometimes under-represented in the mainstream legal debates. The work will be of interest to a scholarly and student audience in law (international, comparative Asian, public, constitutional, and human rights), as well as to readers in international relations, political science, Asian studies, and human rights.
