            The Pink Line: The World's Queer Frontiers

            The Pink Line: The World's Queer Frontiers (Hardback, Main)

            Six years in the making, The Pink Line follows protagonists from nine countries all over the globe to tell the story of how LGBT Rights become one of the world's new human rights frontiers in the second decade of the twenty-first century. From refugees in South Africa to activist...s in Egypt, transgender women in Russia and transitioning teens in the American Mid-West, The Pink Line folds intimate and deeply affecting stories of individuals, families and communities into a definitive account of how the world has changed, so dramatically, in just a decade. And in doing so he reveals a troubling new equation that has come in to play: while same-sex marriage and gender transition are now celebrated in some parts of the world, laws to criminalise homosexuality and gender non-conformity have been strengthened in others. In a work of great scope and wonderful storytelling, this is the groundbreaking, definitive account of how issues of sexuality and gender identity divide and unite the world today.

            Rape in the Nordic Countries: Continuity and Change

            While the Nordic countries are listed at the top in most international rankings of gender equality and citizens' feelings of security, studies on the prevalence of sexual victimisation present a different picture, suggesting that the very countries that have invested much in esta...blishing gender equality actually see a high prevalence of sexual violence. This book sheds light on the phenomenon and construction of rape and other forms of sexual violence within the Nordic region, exploring the ways in which rape and sexual violence are dealt with through criminal law and considering governmental policies aimed at combatting it, with a special focus on legal regulations and developments. Thematically organised, it offers new research on perpetrators, victimhood, criminal justice and prevention. Multi-disciplinary in approach, it brings together the latest work from a range of scholars to offer insights into the situation in the five Nordic countries, asking how and why rape and other forms of sexual violence occur, whilst also addressing the timely issues of online sexual cultures, BDSM and the grey areas of sexual offences. As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology, criminology and law with interests in gender and sexual violence.

            Ageing, Gender and Family Law

            Ageing, Gender and Family Law (Paperback)

            This book explores the intersecting issues relating the phenomenon of ageing to gender and family law. The latter has tended to focus mainly on family life in young and middle age; and, indeed, the issues of childhood and parenting are key in many family law texts. Family life fo...r older members has, then, been largely neglected; addressing this neglect, the current volume explores how the issues which might be important for younger people are not necessarily the same as those for older people. The significance of family, the nature of family life, and the understanding of self in terms of one's relationships, tend to change over the life course. For example, the state may play an increasing role in the lives of older people - as access to services, involvement in work and the community, the ability to live independently, and to form or maintain caring relationships, are all impacted by law and policy. This collection therefore challenges the standard models of family life and family law that have been developed within a child/parent-centred paradigm, and which may require rethinking in the turn to family life in old age. Interdisciplinary in its scope and orientation, this book will appeal not just to academic family lawyers and students interested in issues around family law, ageing, gender, and care; but also to sociologists and ethicists working in these areas.

            Same-Sex Relationships, Law and Social Change

            This edited collection provides a forum for rigorous analysis of the necessity for both legal and social change with regard to regulation of same-sex relationships and rainbow families, the status of civil partnership as a concept and the lived reality of equality for LGBTQ+ pers...ons. Twenty-eight jurisdictions worldwide have now legalised same-sex marriage and many others some level of civil partnership. In contrast other jurisdictions refuse to recognise or even criminalise same-sex relationships. At a Council of Europe level, there is no requirement for contracting states to legalise same-sex marriage. Whilst the Court of Justice of the European Union now requires contracting states to recognise same-sex marriages for the purpose of free movement and residency rights, unlike the US Supreme Court, it does not require EU Member States to legalise same-sex marriage. Law and Sociology scholars from five key jurisdictions (England and Wales, Italy, Australia, Canada, and the Republic of Ireland) examine the role of the Council of Europe, European Union and further international regimes. A balanced approach between the competing views of critically analytical rights based theorists and queer and feminist theorists interrogates the current international consensus in this fast moving area. The incrementalist theory whilst offering a methodology for future advances continues to be critiqued. All contributions from differing perspectives expose that even for those jurisdictions who have legalised same-sex marriage, still further and continuous work needs to be done. The book will be of interest to students and scholars in the field of human rights, family and marriage law and gender studies.

            Demystifies the subject of tax and explains the tax rules and the way in which trusts can be used in practice as a flexible and effective means of wealth accumulation and protection. This book concentrates on the UK tax rules applicable to trusts, resident in the UK, or abroad, a...nd the resultant tax liabilities of the trustees, settlors and beneficiaries, and opportunities for reducing those liabilities where possible. Since the last edition was published in early 2016 (reflecting F (No. 2) A 2015), there has been significant legislative change reflected in several Finance Acts, in relation to the following areas: 1. Administration/Enforcement/Reporting Introduction of the new penalty regime for offshore assets, with a higher level of penalties depending upon various factors, including territory New enforcement powers for HMRC Revisions to the Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Scheme (DOTAS) rules, especially regarding employee trusts The extension of time limit for assessment in relation to offshore matters, which has implications for offshore tax advisers, settlors and beneficiaries Introduction of the serial tax avoiders' regime (STAR), which enables HMRC to levy penalties, `name and shame' taxpayers and require information to be submitted on defeated avoidance arrangements New corporate criminal offence of failing to prevent tax evasion New penalty regime for enablers of defeated tax avoidance schemes Trust Registration Services have been introduced by HMRC for registering new/existing trusts under anti-money laundering regulations Common Reporting Standard and reporting obligations Devolution of taxes to Scottish/Welsh national assemblies. 2. Capital gains tax `Real time' CGT reporting is optional at present, but from 6 April 2020 it will become obligatory to report disposals of UK residential property to HMRC within 30 days of disposal, and pay any tax due Under the non-resident CGT (NRCGT) rules, a person resident abroad who makes a disposal of UK residential prope
