            How cities are planned and designed has a major impact on individuals' mobility and safety. If individuals feel unsafe in public transportation or on the way to it, they may avoid certain routes or particular times of the day. This is problematic since research has also found tha...t, in some cities, especially those in the Global South, a large percentage of women are transit captives . Namely, they have relatively less access to non-public forms of transportation and are, therefore, especially reliant on public transport. This issue is important not only because it affects people's safety but also because it influences the long-term sustainability of a city. In a sustainable city, safety guaranties the ability of free movement for everyone and provides a wider sense of place attachment. Transit Crime and Sexual Violence in Cities examines the evidence of victimization in transit environments in countries around the world, exploring individuals' feelings of perceived safety or lack thereof and the necessary improvements that can make transit safer and, hence, cities more sustainable. The book's contributions are grounded in theories at the crossroads of several disciplines such as environmental criminology, architecture and design, urban planning, geography, psychology, gender and LGBTQI studies, transportation, and law enforcement. International case studies include Los Angeles, Vancouver, Stockholm, London, Paris, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Bogota, Tokyo, Guangzho, Melbourne, and Lagos, among others.

            Few have as close an eye-witness view of the evolution of European Union law as judges at the ECJ. They not only observe, however, but actively work towards its development. This collection assesses the momentous contribution to European Union law made by Jose Luis da Cruz Vilaca.... Taking those areas of law which were directly shaped by his judgments (institutional law/internal market/free movement of persons and judicial review), leading scholars assess his legacy. Through this prism, the story of EU law can be charted.

            Big Data is knowledge discovery and this in turn is a primary concern of BigData applications. Today, data is often referred to as the oil of the 21st century and accordingly BigData applications are seen as a new (oil) source and as a mine for additional business profits. Howeve...r, only those who not only have the necessary technical expertise and infrastructure but also know the legal scope should dig in these mines. This book is intended to illuminate this legal scope and at the same time close a gap in the legal literature on the subject of BigData. Its content goes beyond the purely data protection law view and combines questions in the BigData environment, among others, from the legal sources, the protection of industrial property rights and data protection. In addition to personal data, the book also looks at non-personal data (technical data or anonymous data), which is often mixed together for BigData analyses. These different types of data may originate from different rightholders, may be subject to different national laws, may require different legal bases and/or may be used for different analysis purposes. The book shall be a legal practice guide for the collection, storage and analysis of personal and other data in Big Data applications. It contains numerous guidelines and graphic illustrations/graphics. The practical guide provides well-founded, practice-oriented support. It is aimed in particular at lawyers, computer scientists, business economists, managing directors, managers, analysts, consultants, auditors, as well as internal and external data protection officers.

            Islam has grown in prominence to become one of the central moral traditions in the U.K. But a popular view is that liberal and Islamic traditions are incompatible, and public debate about Islam and British nationhood remain polemical. So how do Western governments facilitate the ...incorporation of Muslim populations and institutions? And why is this important? This book addresses the lack of understanding about the character of British Islam and its relationship to the liberal state. Focusing on Islamic law, education and government, the study is unique in being based on empirical research including interviews undertaken over a ten-year period with Muslims, and analysis of public events organized by Islamic institutions. Stephen Jones challenges claims about the isolation of British Islamic organizations and shows that they have decisively shaped themselves around British public and institutional norms. The book uses evidence to argue that the incorporation of Muslim minorities enables democratic renewal, with national identification having a positive impact on cultural minorities and political dissent. It also provides a detailed examination of the political theory of liberalism and makes recommendations for a specific type of social and political liberalism that is open to the expression of religious argument in its public settings, and to associations between religious groups and the state.

            The Land Registration Act 2002 has been in force for almost fifteen years. When enacted, the legislation, which replaced the Land Registration Act 1925, was intended to offer a clear and lasting framework for the registration of title to land in England and Wales. However, perhap...s confounding the hopes of its drafters, the legislation's interpretation and application has since generated many unanticipated problems which demand attention. In this book's twenty chapters, leading land law scholars, Law Commissioners past and present, judges, and Registry lawyers unpick key technical controversies, and expose underlying theoretical and policy concerns. Core issues addressed in these chapters include: the legitimate ambitions of registration regimes; the nature and security of title afforded by registration; the resolution of priority disputes affecting registered titles; the relationship between the general law and the registration regime; and new challenges presented by modern technological developments.

It also contains chapters on financial scrutiny, parliamentary sovereignty, Parliament and human rights, and the administration of justice. Aimed mainly at legal academics, practitioners, and political scientists, it will also be of interest to anyone who is curious about the many fascinating ways in which the law interacts with and influences the work, the constitutional status and the procedural arrangements of the Westminster Parliament.

            'Disruptive innovation', 'the fourth industrial revolution', 'one of the ten ideas that will change the world'; the collaborative/sharing economy is shaking existing norms. It poses unprecedented challenges in terms of both material policies and governance in almost all aspects o...f EU law. This book explores the application - or indeed inadequacy - of existing EU rules in the context of the collaborative economy. It analyses the novelties introduced by the collaborative economy and discusses the specific regulatory needs and instruments employed therein, most notably self-regulation. Further, it aims to elucidate the legal status of the parties involved (traders, consumers, prosumers) in these multi-sided economies, and their respective roles in the provision of services, especially with regard to liability issues. Moreover, it delves into a sector-specific examination of the relevant EU rules, especially on data protection, competition, consumer protection and labour law, and comments on the uncertainties and lacunae produced therein. It concludes with the acute question of whether fresh EU regulation would be necessary to avoid fragmentation or, on the contrary, if such regulation would create unnecessary burdens and stifle innovation. Taking a broad perspective and pragmatic view, the book provides a comprehensive overview of the collaborative economy in the context of the EU legal landscape.

            The law and practice of EU external relations is governed not only by general objectives (Articles 3(5) and 21 TEU and Article 205 TFEU) and values (Article 2 TEU) but also by a set of principles found in the Treaties and developed by the Court of Justice, which structure the sys...tem, functioning and exercise of EU external competences. This book identifies a set of 'structural principles' as a legal norm-category governing EU external relations; it explores the scope, content and function of those principles that may be categorised as structural. With an ambitious scope, and a stellar line-up of experts in the field, the collection offers a truly innovative perspective on the role of law in EU external relations.
