            Water Poverty and Justice in the Global South: Law, Human Rights and Community Action for Water Security

            Water Poverty and Justice in the Global South: Law, Human Rights and Community Action for Water Security (Hardback)

            Delivering sustainable access to sufficient, safe water represents an urgent and profound global challenge in the face of increasing demand, resource overexploitation, and climate change contributing to unpredictable rainfall, salination and desertification. Much of the effort to... reduce water poverty has centred on considering and declaring access to sufficient water to be a human right. Yet the continuing reality of water poverty for over 650 million people worldwide, even in countries where access to water is already a constitutional right, leads to a reappraisal of the role of human rights in water law and governance and of their ability to alleviate poverty. Using a methodology of narrative inquiry, this book explores the practical consequences of these human rights failings to gain inspiration towards alternative approaches to water governance. In particular, attention is turning towards `commons' modes of resource allocation, which promise to promote more interconnected, communal and grounded visions of water use, better suited to sustainable, equitable water governance. Detailed case studies are included from Argentina, India, Malawi and South Africa.

            This book considers how the law should manage conflicts between the right of religious freedom and that of non-discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. These disputes are often high-profile and frequently receive a lot of media attention and public debate. Starting fr...om the basis that both these rights are valuable and worthy of protection, but that such disputes are often characterised by animosity, it contends that a proportionality analysis provides the best method for resolving these conflicts. The work takes a comparative approach, examining the law in England and Wales, Canada, and the USA and examines four main areas of law, considering how a proportionality approach could be used in each. The book will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers in the areas of Public Law, Human Rights Law, Law and Religion, Discrimination Law, and Comparative Law.

            Brexit will have an impact on the scope of application of EU competition law to UK businesses although they will still be subject to EU competition law where they market their products or services in the remaining EU Member States. Nonetheless, domestic UK Competition law is very... closely aligned to EU law. The implications of Brexit for UK competition policy are very significant and this book will support academics and practitioners in helping them understand key issues and possible outcomes.

            Ownership of the family home is generally not contested until the relationship between the spouses or cohabitants breaks down. The Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 gives the courts adjustive powers to deal with disputes between spouses on the breakdown of the marriage but there is cur...rently no statutory regime governing the financial consequences of separation for unmarried cohabitants. The common intention constructive trust has expanded to fill the vacuum as it falls upon cohabitants to establish an equitable interest in the property. Recent high profile cases and seemingly contradictory judgments have only served to increase the controversy surrounding this particular area of the law. The only aspect of consensus amongst academics, judges and law-reformers alike is that in its current form, the common intention constructive trust remains far from satisfactory. In this book, Alastair Hudson analyses the social, economic and political factors behind the emergence of the common intention constructive trust and its application by the courts. A lively and comprehensive exploration of this burgeoning area of law, this is an ideal guide for students of property law at all levels.

            The aim of this edited collection of essays is to examine the relationship between private law and power - both the public power of the state and the `private' power of institutions and individuals. It describes and critically assesses the way that private law doctrines, institut...ions, processes and rules express, moderate, facilitate and control relationships of power. The various chapters of this work examine the dynamics of the relationship between private law and power from a number of different perspectives - historical, theoretical, doctrinal and comparative. They have been commissioned from leading experts in the field of private law, from several different Commonwealth Jurisdictions (Australia, the UK, Canada and New Zealand), each with expertise in the particular sphere of their contribution. They aim to illuminate the past and assist in resolving some contemporary, difficult legal issues relating to the shape, scope and content of private law and its difficult relationship with power.

            Fifty years ago, David Matza wrote Delinquency and Drift, challenging the ways people thought about the development of criminals. Today, Delinquency and Drift Revisited reminds criminologists that they ignore Matza's writings at their own intellectual peril. Matza's work shows hi...s insights on a range of core criminological issues, such as: the complex nature of culture and its connection to criminality; the extent to which rule-breakers are truly different from the rest of us ; the importance of focusing on human agency in understanding the subjective side of offending; the interaction of propensity and peer influences in criminal involvement; the role of the state in signifying individuals as deviant and entrapping them in criminal roles; and the processes that lead offenders to desist from crime. This volume was not written to pay homage to Matza, but to show how his ideas remain relevant to criminology today by continuing to question conventional wisdom, by making us pay attention to realities we have overlooked, and by inspiring us to theorize more innovatively.

            Exploring Sport and Leisure Disasters: A Socio-Legal Perspective

            Exploring Sport and Leisure Disasters: A Socio-Legal Perspective (Hardback)

            First published in 2001. This book provides a socio-legal analysis of disasters by setting out two sport and leisure disasters (the 1989 Hillsborough and Marchioness disasters) and considering them in their broader legal/political/economic and policy contexts. It bases the analys...is on in-depth examinations of the legal responses to these disasters. The foundations for the case studies are laid by reviewing critiques of relevant contemporary legal problems. These include the concepts and contexts of disasters; the law in a liberal democracy; negligence, mass actions and policy in PTSD cases; statutory regulation of and safety; the laws of corporate reckless manslaughter and the contemporary legal problems of inquests and public inquiries into disasters. The theoretical and policy chapters are followed by the presentation of the two case study disasters, drawing on documentary sources and interviews with academics, policy makers, key legal practitioners and campaigners for legal reform, involved in these post-disaster legal processes. The analysis returns to the critical themes of the earlier chapters and ends with conclusions and recommendations for further research and legal reform arising out of this area of `disaster law'. Students in sport and leisure courses will be required to tackle legal and ethical issues. Law modules and courses in sport and law are developing an increasingly socio-legal, if not multi-disciplinary approach. This book takes account of this, taking a critical, multi-disciplinary approach to sport, leisure and the law. However, it will be useful to a broader group of readers who study, practice or work in the law or legal reform and apply their work to disasters.
