            This book addresses the intersection of two current major concerns in Australia: law and justice responses to domestic violence - including harsher punitive measures - and the over-representation of Indigenous Australians in the criminal justice system, which are similar concerns... in New Zealand, Canada and the US.

            The absence of a coherent body of case law on due process has increasingly motivated recalcitrant parties to use due process as a strategic tool, thereby putting at risk the prospect of obtaining an enforceable award in expeditious proceedings. Countering this inherent danger, he...re for the first time is a comprehensive study on due process as a limit to arbitral discretion, showing how due process applies in practice in key jurisdictions around the world. Based on country reports prepared by leading arbitration practitioners and academics, the book explores how courts in major arbitration jurisdictions apply due process guarantees when performing their post-award review. The contributors, driven by an interest in exploring the interplay between due process and efficiency, focus on those due process guarantees that set limits to arbitral discretion. Matters covered include the following: the right to be heard and how it may be affected by submission deadlines, evidentiary offers by the opposing party, and directions to the parties as to which aspects require further pleading; the right to be treated equally and its interplay with the duty to give each party full opportunity to present its case and to comment on submissions and evidence filed by the other party; the duty to effect proper notice, including delivery and language issues; the independence and impartiality of arbitrators with a focus on when an arbitrator's conduct can become the basis for a successful challenge; and courts' standards of deference when examining issues arising at the post-award stage. An introductory general report thoroughly analyses the normative basis of due process and its interplay with party autonomy, as well as applicable standards of review and commonalities among manifestations of due process across jurisdictions. A signal contribution to the debate regarding the so-called due process paranoia affecting arbitral tribunals - a topic relevant in every single arbitration proceeding -

            El libro incorpora de forma integra la Convencion sobre los Derechos del Nino Adoptada y abierta a la firma y ratificacion por la Asamblea General en su resolucion 44/25, de 20 de noviembre de 1989 en Frances, Ruso, Arabe, Espanol y Chino. Hambre, guerras y epidemias son los mayo...res enemigos de los ninos. Diversos informes confirman que en determinadas zonas del planeta la situacion mejora para ellos, pero incluso en los paises industrializados tienen carencias. Son el grupo mas vulnerable y la crisis economica actual no contribuye a mejorar su situacion: la tasa de mortalidad infantil ha descendido en los ultimos anos, pero todavia debe bajar mas; los conflictos armados se nutren de ninos soldados, cuyas secuelas psicologicas son a menudo mayores que las fisicas; y en los paises desarrollados, el crecimiento del PIB no es proporcional al nivel de bienestar infantil. Los jovenes son el futuro. Por ello, es imprescindible aprovechar la infancia y la adolescencia para asentar ciertos valores que guiaran su comportamiento en los anos siguientes. Este es el objetivo de la educacion contra la discriminacion y el racismo. Se intenta que los jovenes sean tolerantes y sensibles a una realidad multicultural. Diversos materiales elaborados para este fin ayudan a conseguirlo desde las aulas.

            Legal Positivism in a Global and Transnational Age
              

            Legal Positivism in a Global and Transnational Age (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 1st ed. 2019)

            A theme of growing importance in both the law and philosophy and socio-legal literature is how regulatory dynamics can be identified (that is, conceptualised and operationalised) and normative expectations met in an age when transnational actors operate on a global plane and in i...ncreasingly fragmented and transformative contexts. A reconsideration of established theories and axiomatic findings on regulatory phenomena is an essential part of this discourse. There is indeed an urgent need for discontinuity regarding what we (think we) know about, among other things, law, legality, sovereignty and political legitimacy, power relations, institutional design and development, and pluralist dynamics of ordering under processes of globalisation and transnationalism. Making an important contribution to the scholarly debate on the subject, this volume features original and much-needed essays of theoretical and applied legal philosophy as well as socio-legal accounts that reflect on whether legal positivism has anything to offer to this intellectual enterprise. This is done by discussing whether global and transnational cultural, socio-political, economic, and juridical challenges as well as processes of diversification, fragmentation, and transformation (significantly, de-formalisation) reinforce or weaken legal positivists' assumptions, claims, and methods. The themes covered include, but are not limited to, absolute and limited state sovereignty; the 'new international legal positivism'; Hartian legal positivism and the 'normative positivist' account; the relationship between modern secularisation, social conventionalism, and meta-ontological issues of temporality in postnational jurisprudence; the social positivisation of human rights; the formation and content of jus cogens norms; feminist critique; the global and transnational migration of principles of justice and morality; the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties rule of interpretation; and the responsibility of tr
