Diversity and European human rights : rewriting judgments of the ECHR by Eva Brems( )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through redrafting the judgments of the ECHR, Diversity and European Human Rights demonstrates how the Court could improve the mainstreaming of diversity in its judgments. Eighteen judgments are considered and rewritten to reflect the concerns of women, children, LGB persons, ethnic and religious minorities and persons with disabilities, in turn. Each redrafted judment is accompanied by a paper outlining the theoretical concepts and frameworks that guided the approaches of the authors and explaining how each amendment to the original text is an improvement. Simultaneously, the authors demonstrate how difficult it can be to translate ideas into judgments, whilst also providing examples of what those ideas would look like in judicial language. By rewriting actual judicial decisions in a wide range of topics, this book offers a broad overview of diversity issues in the jurisprudence of the ECHR and aims to bridge the gap between academic analysis and judicial practice"--P.

Shaping rights in the ECHR : the role of the European Court of Human Rights in determining the scope of human rights by Eva Brems( )

23 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In fundamental rights adjudication, a court first has to determine whether the interest at stake falls within the scope of the fundamental right invoked. Whether or not an individual interest falls within the scope or ambit of one of the fundamental rights protected by the European Convention on Human Rights determines whether or not the European Court of Human Rights can decide on the merits of a case. This volume brings together a variety of legal scholars in order to examine the scope of fundamental rights. Topics range from the nature of human rights and the real or imagined risk of rights inflation to theories of positive obligations and social and economic rights. It contains contributions of a theoretical nature as well as analytical overviews of the ECtHR's approach. In addition, comparisons are made with domestic, EU and international law"--

Human rights and development : legal perspectives from and for Ethiopia by Eva Brems( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers by international and Ethiopian scholars included in 'Human Rights and Development: Legal Perspectives from and for Ethiopia' focus on the interconnectedness between the protection of human rights and the achievement of development. The book adds to the international debate by providing a unique insight into the Ethiopian perspective on the nexus between rights and development and by discussing how this nexus manifests itself in the Ethiopian context. The comparative and international frameworks and examples constitute a valuable resource for the debate on human rights and development in Ethiopia, which is currently taking place in the context of the developmental state approach pursued by the Ethiopian government
Human rights and civil liberties in the 21st century by Yves Haeck( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contributes to the on-going legal discussion on pressing procedural and substantial law issues in the ambit of international human rights and civil liberties. While the 20th century has seen the true awakening of human rights, the 21st century poses new challenges to this ever-unfolding area of law. Not only do international tribunals and quasi-tribunals worldwide and domestic US and European continental courts have to deal with increasing numbers of complaints and petitions from individuals and groups on a vast array of societal problems, the legal issues put to them are sometimes extremely difficult to resolve as they relate to very sensitive issues. This book examines issues ranging from the status of human rights under US law to the status of the ECHR in the broader context of international law. It looks at the role of positive obligations in the case law of the Strasbourg Court, as well the impact of its case-law on childbirth and push-back operation towards boat people, but also at the growing unwillingness of ECHR member states to cooperate with the Strasbourg Court. It explores the new frontiers in US Capital punishment litigation, the first case before the International Criminal Court and the legal effect of judgments of the European Court on third states

The experiences of face veil wearers in Europe and the law( Book )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most remarkable aspects pertaining to the legal bans and societal debates on the face veil in Europe is that they rely on assumptions which lack any factual basis. To rectify this, Eva Brems researched the experiences of women who wear a face veil in Belgium, and brought her research results together with those of colleagues who did the same in four other European countries. Their findings, which are outlined in this volume, move the current discussion on face veil bans forward by providing a much-needed insider perspective"--
Human Rights : universality and diversity by Eva Brems( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers an analysis of context-specific human rights discourses from East Asia, Subsaharan Africa and the Muslim World. The author examines how and to what extent the claims that are advanced can and should be accommodated in order to further the universality of human rights
When human rights clash at the European Court of Human Rights : conflict or harmony?( )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children's rights law in the global human rights landscape : isolation, inspiration, integration? by Eva Brems( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Children's rights law is often studied and perceived in isolation from the broader field of human rights law. This volume explores the inter-relationship between children's right law and more general human rights law in order to see whether elements from each could successfully inform the other. Children's rights law has a number of distinctive characteristics, such as the emphasis on the 'best interests of the child', the use of general principles and the includion of 'third parties' (e.g. parents and other carers) in treaty provisions."--Page [1]
Procedural review in European fundamental rights cases by J. H Gerards( )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Traditionally, courts adjudicate fundamental rights cases by applying substantive tests of reasonableness or proportionality. Increasingly, however, European courts are also expressly taking account of the quality of the procedure that has led up to a fundamental rights interference. Yet this procedural review is far from uncontroversial. There still is a lack of clarity as to what 'procedural review' really means, what its potential for judicial decision-making is, how it relates and should relate to substantive review, and what its limitations are ... [This book studies] procedural review, considering the theoretical and conceptual issues at play, as well as the applicability of procedural review in different legal systems."--
Stereotypes and human rights law by Eva Brems( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stereotypes are beliefs about groups of people. Some examples, taken from human rights case law, are the notions that 'Roma are thieves', 'women are responsible for childcare', and 'people with a mental disability are incapable of forming political opinions'. Increasingly, human rights monitoring bodies (including the European and inter-American human rights courts, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, and the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination) voice concerns about stereotyping and warn states not to enforce harmful stereotypes. Human rights bodies thus appear to be starting to realise what social psychologists discovered a long time ago: that stereotypes underlie inequality and discrimination. Despite their relevance and their legal momentum, however, stereotypes have so far received little attention from human rights law scholars. This volume is the first one to broadly analyse stereotypes as a human rights issue. The scope of the book includes different stereotyping grounds (such as race, gender, and disability). Moreover, this book examines stereotyping approaches across a broad range of supranational human rights monitoring bodies, including the United Nations human rights treaty system as well as the regional systems that are most developed when it comes to addressing stereotypes: the Council of Europe and the inter-American system"--Page 4 de la couverture
Conflicts between fundamental rights by International Conference on Conflicts Between Fundamental Rights( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human rights encounter legal pluralism : normative and empirical approaches by Giselle Corradi( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2019 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays interrogates how human rights law and practice acquire meaning in relation to legal pluralism, ie, the co-existence of more than one regulatory order in a same social field. As a social phenomenon, legal pluralism exists in all societies. As a legal construction, it is characteristic of particular regions, such as post-colonial contexts. Drawing on experiences from Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe, the contributions in this volume analyse how different configurations of legal pluralism interplay with the legal and the social life of human rights. At the same time, they enquire into how human rights law and practice influence interactions that are subject to regulation by more than one normative regime
Integrated human rights in practice : rewriting human rights decisions( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims to introduce concrete and innovative proposals for a holistic approach to supranational human rights justice through a hands-on legal exercise: the rewriting of decisions of supranational human rights monitoring bodies. The contributing scholars have thus redrafted crucial passages of landmark human rights judgments and decisions, 'as if human rights law were really one', borrowing or taking inspiration from developments and interpretations throughout the whole multi-layered human rights protection system. In addition to the rewriting exercise, the contributors have outlined the methodology and/or theoretical framework that guided their approaches and explain how human rights monitoring bodies may adopt an integrated approach to human rights law. This book shows that even within the current fragmented landscape of international human rights law, it is possible to integrate human rights to a significantly higher degree than is generally the case. Redrafted opinions deal with major contemporary issues such as conscientious objection by health service providers, intersectional discrimination of minority women, the rights of persons with disabilities, the rights of indigenous peoples against powerful economic interests, and the human rights impact of austerity measures. This book's novel perspective and applied, concrete examples make it an invaluable resource for academics and students as well as judges, lawyers, and treaty body members
National human rights institutions and economic, social and cultural rights( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "This volume brings together insights and experiences from across the world on the actual and potential role of national human rights institutions with respect to economic, social and cultural rights. Increasingly, national human rights institutions are seen as a necessary part of human rights architecture. Arguably, it may be in the field of economic, social and cultural rights that their added value is the most crucial, as this is where the gap left by other human rights actors and fora is the most manifest. The editors invited a number of academic experts, in addition to several prominent authors from within national human rights institutions. The volume thus brings together theoretical and practical views on the cumulative dynamic of two booming phenomena in contemporary human rights protection: the spread of national human rights institutions and the stepping up of efforts to enforce economic, social and cultural rights."
Fragmentation and integration in human rights law : users' perspectives by Eva Brems( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the perspective of rights holders and duty bearers, human rights law appears as an increasingly complex field of law, consisting of different levels, actors and norms. The fragmentation of human rights law has resulted in an uncoordinated legal architecture that may in some circumstances create obstacles for effective human rights protection. Against this background, this volume examines how to make sense - in both theoretical and practical terms - of these multiple layers of human rights law through which human rights users have to navigate."
International actors and traditional justice in Sub-Saharan Africa : policies and interventions in transitional justice and justice sector aid( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book studies the role of international actors in the areas of transitional justice and justice sector aid with respect to traditional justice and legal pluralism in sub-Saharan Africa. Based on a number of case studies, the chapters describe the kinds of policies and interventions that are supported and financed by international actors, with special attention for the kinds of strategies that are deployed in order to address areas of tension with human rights."--Page [4] of cover
