            Rebellious Jurisprudence is the first attempt to construct a theory of judicial dissent as a matter of general international law. Although dissenting and separate opinions are typically associated with the common law tradition, the right of judges to issue such opinions has been ...recognised and reproduced across most international tribunals. Despite this, until now no attempt has been made to theorise the institutionalisation of judicial dissent in international law and its implications for how international tribunals discharge their functions. This study offers a theory of judicial dissent that addresses its ubiquity in international law, notwithstanding the often-fundamental disagreement between the principal legal cultures as to its effects. Rebellious Jurisprudence explores how insights from social anthropology - specifically ritual theory - supplement conventional accounts of judicial dissent. Whereas existing literature focuses upon 'revolutionary' or 'radical' dissent, this study expands our field of focus to sharpen our understanding of the 'everyday' dissent: the (rebellious) 'institutional dissent'. By revealing how judicial dissent operates, and to what ends, Rebellious Jurisprudence is essential reading for those who regularly engage with judicial dissent by international judges - whether judges, practitioners, scholars or students - who seek to deepen their understanding of, and in turn enhance the accuracy and effectiveness by which they engage with, this burgeoning body of jurisprudential activity.

            This book examines the intersection between contemporary International Commercial Arbitration and Shari'a law in order to determine possible tensions that may arise between the two systems. It develops evidentiary and procedural rules under Shari'a, as well as examining the conse...quences of stipulating qualifications of arbitrators based on gender and/or religion. The author extensively analyses the prohibition against interest (riba) and uncertainty (gharar) under Shari'a and its impact on arbitration agreements, arbitral awards and public policy. The book also explores the prohibition against riba in light of international conventions, such as the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Case studies in the book include the Asian International Arbitration Centre, formerly the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration, and the International Islamic Centre for Reconciliation and Arbitration, as well as the 'Shari'a Standards' developed by the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions. The book will be a valuable resource for academics, students and practitioners working in the areas of Islamic law and the Islamic finance industry.

            Collective Punishment and Human Rights Law: Addressing Gaps in International Law
             

            Collective Punishment and Human Rights Law: Addressing Gaps in International Law (Hardback)

            This book analyses collective punishment in the context of human rights law. Collective punishment is a concept deriving from the law of armed conflict. It describes the punishment of a group for an act allegedly committed by one of its members and is prohibited in times of armed... conflict. Although the imposition of collective punishment has been witnessed in situations outside armed conflict as well, human rights instruments do not explicitly address collective punishment. Consequently, there is a genuine gap in the protection of affected groups in situations outside of or short of armed conflict. Supported by two case studies on collective punishment in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and in Chechnya, the book examines potential options to close this gap in human rights law in a way contributing to the empowerment of affected groups. This analysis centres on the European Convention on Human Rights due to its relevance to the situation in Chechnya. By questioning whether human rights instruments can encompass a prohibition of collective punishment, the book contributes to the broader academic debate on rights held by collectivities in general and on collective human rights in particular. The book will be of interest to students, academics and policy-makers in the areas of International Human Rights Law, International Humanitarian Law and International Criminal Law.

            Shareholder Activism and the Law: The Future of US Corporate Governance
             

            Shareholder Activism and the Law: The Future of US Corporate Governance (Hardback)

            This book provides a complete framework for contemporary shareholder activism and its implications over US corporate governance, which is based on the director primacy theory. Under director primacy theory, shareholders do not wish to be involved with the management, and when the...y do it equally means a transfer of power from the board of directors to shareholders, which in turn reduces the efficiency of the centralised decision-making in public-companies. However, this book demonstrates that shareholders do not use their power to transfer corporate control from the board to themselves, and even some form of shareholder activism is collaborative, which is a new paradigm for US corporate governance. This book shows that while monitoring remains as a key contribution of shareholders, they also bring new informational inputs to corporate decision-making, which could not be obtained under the traditional board model. Accordingly, contemporary shareholder activism enhances the board's decision-making and monitoring capacity, without undermining the economic value of the board authority. Therefore, this book sets out that the complete approach of contemporary shareholder activism should be accommodated into US corporate governance. In doing so, this book considers not only legal and regulatory developments in the wake of the 2007-2008 financial crisis, but also the governance developments through by-law amendments. Furthermore, the author makes several recommendations to soften the current director primacy model: establishing a level playing for private ordering, adopting the proxy access default regime, the majority voting rule, the universal proxy rules, and enhancing the disclosure requirements of shareholders. The book will be of interest to academics and students of corporate governance, both in the US and internationally.

            The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has facilitated the understanding that disability is both a human rights and development issue. In order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, the focus on disability inclusion has become increasingly im...portant in the discourse of international and national efforts for leaving no one behind , the motto of the SDGs. This book discusses pertinent and emerging themes such as disability rights, globalization, inequalities, international cooperation and representation. Evidence which has been obtained tends to show that persons with disabilities have been disproportionately left behind without proper representation, participation and inclusion. This book critically investigates the gaps at different levels, from top to bottom, and as importantly, within the global disability movement, for the realisation of global disability rights, and theorizes the intersection of disability, globalization and human rights. Empirical case studies from different countries and contexts are introduced to deepen analysis on theories of critical disability studies from a global perspective. Co-edited by a disability researcher and the former United Nations Special Rapporteur on Disability, this book will be of interest to all students, academics, policy makers and practitioners working to advance the cause of disability rights around the world.

            This book elucidates why human rights still matter in contemporary global affairs, and what can lead to better protection of international human rights in a post-liberal order. It blends theoretical, empirical, and normative perspectives, while providing much-needed analysis in l...ight of the perils of populism, authoritarianism, and toxic nationalism as well as the hopes with which people around the world view human rights in the new millennium. Systematically combining theoretical perspectives from across the disciplines with numerous case studies, it demonstrates not only the complexities of the domestic conditions involved, but also the ways in which human dignity can be preserved and promoted during periods of rapid change and uncertainty. Finally, the book addresses the question of how to protect human rights in such a world in which the active promotion of democratic values and enforcement of human rights may not be necessarily aligned with evolving economic and geopolitical interests of many great and diverse powers on the global scene. As such, it is a timely intervention for human rights as a concept as it has been attacked and eroded by the instability in our world today. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of human rights in politics, law, philosophy, sociology, and history and to humanitarian bodies, practitioners and policy makers.

            In the last decade, there has been a turn to history in international humanitarian law and its accompanying fields. To examine this historization and to expand the current scope of scholarship, this book brings together scholars from various fields, including law, history, sociol...ogy, and international relations. Human rights law, international criminal law, and the law on the use of force are all explored across the text's four main themes: historiographies of selected fields of international law; evolution of specific international humanitarian law rules in the context of legal gaps and fault lines; emotions as a factor in international law; and how actors can influence history. This work will enhance and broaden readers' knowledge of the field and serve as an excellent starting point for further research.

            Comparative constitutional change has recently emerged as a distinct field in the study of constitutional law. It is the study of the way constitutions change through formal and informal mechanisms, including amendment, replacement, total and partial revision, adaptation, interpr...etation, disuse, and revolution. The shift of focus from constitution-making to constitutional change makes sense, since amendment power is the means used to refurbish constitutions in established democracies, enhance their adaptation capacity and boost their efficacy. Adversely, constitutional change is also the basic apparatus used to orchestrate constitutional backslide as the erosion of liberal democracies and democratic regression is increasingly affected through legal channels of constitutional change. The Routledge Handbook of Comparative Constitutional Change provides a comprehensive reference tool for all those working in the field and a thorough landscape of all theoretical and practical aspects of the topic. Coherence from this aspect does not suggest a common view, as the chapters address different topics, but reinforces the establishment of Comparative Constitutional Change as a distinct field. The book brings together the most respected scholars working in the field, and presents a genuine contribution to comparative constitutional studies, comparative public law, political science and constitutional history.
