Just war or just peace? : humanitarian intervention and international law by Simon Chesterman( Book )

42 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Readership: Lawyers and academics working in international law, international relations, and war studies." "This book critically examines the right of humanitarian intervention, asserted most spectacularly by NATO during its 1999 air strikes over Kosovo. The UN Charter prohibits the unilateral use of force, but there have long been arguments that such a right might exist as an exception to this rule, or linked to the changing role of the Security Council. Through an analysis of these questions, the book puts NATO's action in Kosovo in its proper legal and historical perspective."--Jacket

One nation under surveillance : a new social contract to defend freedom without sacrificing liberty by Simon Chesterman( Book )

24 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What limits, if any, should be placed on a government's efforts to spy on its citizens in the name of national security? Spying on foreigners has long been regarded as an unseemly but necessary enterprise. Spying on one's own citizens in a democracy, by contrast, has historically been subject to various forms of legal and political restraint. For most of the twentieth century these regimes were kept distinct. That position is no longer tenable. Modern threats do not respect national borders. Changes in technology make it impractical to distinguish between 'foreign' and 'local' communications. And our culture is progressively reducing the sphere of activity that citizens can reasonably expect to be kept from government eyes. The main casualty of this transformed environment will be privacy. Recent battles over privacy have been dominated by fights over warrantless electronic surveillance or CCTV; the coming years will see debates over DNA databases, data mining, and biometric identification. There will be protests and lawsuits, editorials and elections resisting these attacks on privacy. Those battles are worthy. But the war will be lost. Modern threats increasingly require that governments collect such information, governments are increasingly able to collect it, and citizens increasingly accept that they will collect it. One Nation Under Surveillance proposes a move away from questions of whether governments should collect information and onto more problematic and relevant questions concerning its use. By reframing the relationship between privacy and security in the language of a social contract, mediated by a citizenry who are active participants rather than passive targets, this book offers a framework to defend freedom without sacrificing liberty."--Publisher's description
Secretary or general? : the UN Secretary-General in world politics by Simon Chesterman( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Secretary-General of the United Nations is a unique figure in world politics. At once civil servant, the world's diplomat, lackey of the UN Security Council, and commander-in-chief of up to a hundred thousand peacekeepers, he or she depends on states for both the legitimacy and resources that enable the United Nations to function. The tension between these roles - of being secretary or general - has challenged every incumbent. This book brings together the insights of senior UN staff, diplomats and scholars to examine the normative and political factors that shape this unique office with particular emphasis on how it has evolved in response to changing circumstances such as globalization and the onset of the 'war on terror'. The difficulties experienced by each Secretary-General reflect the profound ambivalence of states towards entrusting their security, interests or resources to an intergovernmental body."--Publisher's description

From community to compliance : the evolution of monitoring obligations in ASEAN by Simon Chesterman( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past decade, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has transformed from a periodic meeting of ministers to setting ambitious goals of becoming a Community by 2015. ASEAN is now the most important regional organisation in the history of the continent of Asia. An important tension in this transformation is the question of whether the 'ASEAN way' - defined by consultation and consensus, rather than enforceable obligations - is consistent with the establishment of a community governed by law. This book examines the growing interest in following through on international commitments, in particular monitoring implementation and compliance. Key barriers remain, in particular the lack of resources and ongoing resistance to accepting binding obligations. It remains to be seen whether these trends herald a more measured approach to decision-making in ASEAN. Written for practitioners and researchers alike, this important book provides the first systematic survey of monitoring within ASEAN

Finding Arcadia by Simon Chesterman( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To understand the present, Arcadia Greentree must dig deep into her past. In Book 1, sixteen-year-old Arcadia discovered she was adopted and that her development had been shaped and monitored by her "parents" together with the headmaster of her school. The discovery resulted in a tragedy as her father was murdered and her mother put in a coma. In Book 2, Arcadia tries to locate the "professor" whom she believes to be ultimately responsible for her situation. A series of bomb threats lead her to Oxford University and a confrontation with her enemy-but all is not as it seems
The UN Security Council and the rule of law : the role of the Security Council in strengthening a rules-based international system : final report and recommendations from the Austrian initiative, 2004-2008 by Simon Chesterman( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report summarizes key findings and proposes concrete recommendations that would enhance the role of the Council in strengthening a rules-based international system. Section I examines what is meant by 'the rule of law' in international affairs before considering in section II how this concept has been used by international organizations, in particular the United Nations and the Security Council. Section III discusses how such concepts might apply to the Council itself, before considering specific cases of Council action: quasi-legislative resolutions in section IV, and quasi-judicial functions in section V. Section VI discusses particular challenges to Council authority that have arisen in the context of sanctions targeted at individuals, suggesting ways in which the Council might respond that would enhance the Council's legitimacy without undermining the effectiveness of the sanctions regime."--Introduction
