Ethics and political practice : perspectives on legislative ethics by Noel Preston 18 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Legislative ethics: Does such a thing exist? Can it? In contrast to the apparent agreement among the media and the public that the answer to both questions is a resounding 'No', this book considers both the existing problems, in term of perception by the public and legislators themselves , institutions, education and procedures, and suggests ways forward for engendering and maintaining a healthy ethical community in the legislative sphere.
Codes of conduct, the role of the media, the need for education and a balance between a maximalist versus a minimalist approach are all discussed. Fiduciary duty and the atmospheric trust by C. G Sampford 11 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Explores the application of concepts of fiduciary duty or public trust in responding to the policy and governance challenges posed by policy problems that extend over multiple terms of government or even, as in the case of climate change, human generations.
The volume brings together a range of perspectives including leading international thinkers on questions of fiduciary duty and public trust, Australia's most prominent judicial advocate for the application of fiduciary duty, top law scholars from several major universitites, expert commentary from an influential climate policy think-tank and the views of long-serving highly respected past and present parliamentarians. The book presents a detailed examination of the nature and extent of fiduciary duty, looking at the example of Australia and having regard to developments in comparable jurisdictions.
It identifies principles that could improve the accountability of political actors for their responses to major problems that may extend over multiple electoral cycles"--Page 4 of cover. Norms of protection : responsibility to protect, protection of civilians and their interaction 10 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "A series of humanitarian tragedies in the s Somalia, ; Rwanda, ; Srebrenica, ; Kosovo, demonstrated the failure of the international community to protect civilians in the context of complex emergencies.
These brought to life two norms of protection -- Responsibility to Protect R2P and Protection of Civilians POC -- both deeply rooted in the empathy that human beings have for the suffering of innocent people. The two norms of protection were instrumental in adopting Security Council Resolutions and Libya , and Cote d'Ivoire in Both norms raise concerns of misinterpretation and misuse.
They are developing -- sometimes in parallel, sometimes diverging and sometimes converging -- with varying degrees of institutionalization and acceptance. This process is likely to continue for some time with successes and failures enhancing or retarding that development. This book engages in a profound comparative analysis of the norms and aims to serve policy-makers at various levels national, regional and UN ; practitioners with protective roles force commanders, military trainers, strategists and humanitarian actors ; academics and researchers in international relations, law, political theory and ethics ; civil society and R2P and POC advocates.
Legal ethics and legal practice : contemporary issues Book 14 editions published between and in English and Italian and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide This collection of essays on legal ethics addresses the subject comparatively, unlike any previous publication in either the UK or the US. Many of the papers originated from rare collaborative empirical research between academic and practising lawyers combining to produce a book that is unique in its concern with the issues that affect all lawyers in common law systems today.
These lawyers are naturally apprehensive about the unprecedented investigation, criticism, and attack which they face. They fear for their livelihood and status in the community while sharing the public's sense of unease. Searching for immediate changes that might placate economic deregulators, the press and politicians, is one of the aims of this collection of original essays, many of which are written by people who are, or were, practitioners of law.
Rethinking international law and justice by C. G Sampford 16 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide General principles of law have made, and are likely further to make, a significant contribution to our understanding of the constituent elements of global justice. Dealing extensively with global headline issues of peace, security and justice, this book explores justice arising in specific areas of international law, as well as underlying theories of justice from political science and international relations.
With contributions from leading academics and practitioners, the book adopts an interdisciplinary approach. Covering issues such as international humanitarian law, and examining the significance of non-state actors for the development of international law, the collection concludes with the complex question of how best to rethink aspects of international justice. The lessons derived from this research will have wide implications for both developed and emerging nation-states in rethinking sensitive issues of international law and justice.
