            The War on Drugs has been official American policy since the 1970s, with the UK, Europe, and much of the world following suit. It is at best a failed policy, according to bestselling author Antony Loewenstein. Its direct results have included mass incarceration in the US, extreme... violence in different parts of the world, the backing of dictatorships, and surging drug addiction globally. And now the Trump administration is unleashing diplomatic and military forces against any softening of the conflict. Pills, Powder, and Smoke investigates the individuals, officials, activists, and traffickers caught up in this deadly war. Travelling through the UK, the US, Australia, Honduras, the Philippines, and Guinea-Bissau, Loewenstein uncovers the secrets of the drug war, why it's so hard to end, and who is really profiting from it. Loewenstein reports on the frontlines across the globe, from the streets of London's King's Cross to remote African villages. He reveals how the War on Drugs has become the most deadly war in modern times. Designed and inspired by Washington, its agenda has nothing to do with ending drug use or addiction, but is all about controlling markets, territory, and people.

            This collection of essays is the first dedicated to the topic of critical approaches to international criminal law. This field has recently experienced a significant surge in scholarship, in institutions, and in public debate. Individual criminal accountability is firmly entrench...ed in both international law and the international consciousness as a necessary mechanism of responsibility. Yet international criminal law as a field has is largely unchecked and unquestioned. The speed at which international tribunals, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, or the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, and of course the permanent International Criminal Court, were established has left little time to ponder the assumptions which inform international criminal justice as it is currently understood. A more considered interrogation this field is, then, overdue. And, including papers from an international range of experts in this area, this book critically examines the central tenets of international criminal law: its limitations, as well as its complicities.

            The Role of Consent in Human Trafficking
             

            The Role of Consent in Human Trafficking (Hardback)

            By Elliott, Jessica

            • To Order/ Indent titles

            Consent in the law is a much debated and unquestionably problematic notion, uniform definition and application of which to different situations can be both difficult to achieve, and inappropriate. Furthermore, establishing the presence of 'coercion' and therefore lack of consent ...can be highly problematic, particularly in terms of situations of human trafficking and illegal prostitution, activities which may be deemed inherently coercive and problematically clandestine. This book explores the legal notion of consent, arguing that when it is applied to situations of human trafficking, migration and sexual exploitation, it presents a series of problems and issues which the current law may be inadequate to address. The book addresses the nature and role of consent in the transnational trade in women for sexual exploitation. The legal definition of 'trafficking in humans' in international instruments is discussed while the book also takes a comparative approach examining the domestic implementation of the international law in different countries, as well as the various approaches to tackling human trafficking. The determination who is and who is not in fact a trafficked victim is something States take very seriously and determinations one way or the other can lead to vastly different outcomes. As with the asylum and refugee process, there is often a system of rights and privileges available to the formally trafficked individual, as well as the human rights protections available to any individual who may need to rely upon them. Jessica Elliott considers what the ramifications of inclusion of this controversial element are for the putative victims, and what concession, if any, can be made for those who have been subject to serious sexual exploitation yet due to the technical nature of the definition of human trafficking, fall below the formal standard of 'trafficked'.

            International Criminal Law in Context provides a critical and contextual introduction to the fundamentals of international criminal law and discusses its embeddedness within the fields of international law and international relations. The book aims to capture the complex changes ...of internationalisation and transnationalisation that criminal law has experienced over the past few decades. The book also discusses the relationship between international criminal law and other branches of international law and seeks to account for the normative foundations of the subject and the political and cultural factors that have influenced - and that continue to influence - this still emerging body of law.

            This book examines the historical genealogy of the torture taboo. The dissonance between the absolute prohibition against torture and its widespread violation raises important questions about the torture taboo in world politics. Does the torture taboo matter? Or are political rea...lists correct in arguing that power politics rules? Barnes argues that despite the torture taboo's violation, it still matters, and paradoxically, its strength can be seen by studying its violation. States hide, deny, re-define, and outsource their torture, as well as torture without leaving marks to avoid being stigmatised as a norm violating state. Tracing a genealogy of the torture taboo from the eighteenth to the twenty first century Barnes shows how the taboo has developed over time, and how violations have played an important role in that development. Through six historical and contemporary case studies, it is argued that the taboo's humanitarian pressures do not cease when states violate the norm, but continue to shape actors in unexpected ways. Building upon the constructivist norm literature that has shown how norms shape state actions and interests, the book also widens our understanding of the complex role norm violations play in international society. Making a contribution to existing public debates on the use of torture in counter-terrorism policy, it will be of great use to scholars, postgraduates and practitioners in the fields of human rights, international relations theory (in particular constructivism), security studies, and international law.

            Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents is a series that provides primary source documents and expert commentary on various topics relating to the worldwide effort to combat terrorism, as well as efforts by the United States and other nations to protect their national securit...y interests. Volume 148, Lone Wolf Terrorists, examines the phenomenon of the solitary domestic terrorist, analyzes the distinction between such terrorists and mass murderers who are not deemed to be terrorists, considers the motivations of violent extremists, and examines the dilemmas faced by law enforcement in preventing solitary political extremists with violent ideologies from translating their beliefs into actions. The volume is divided into three sections, providing an overview of the topic, an examination of strategies for prevention of such attacks, and a consideration of the Internet's role in contributing to radicalization. Documents included in this volume include a CRS report on domestic terrorism, a report examining violent radicalization from a criminal justice perspective, and a CRS report differentiating hate crimes from domestic terrorism, as well as other reports on the lone wolf terrorism phenomenon and strategies to prevent and/or counter it. The last document in the volume is a CRS report relating to the advocacy of terrorism on the Internet, especially including social media, and the ways in which law enforcement might be able to address the problem of dangerous online speech within the current U.S. legal structure.
