Burma : prospects for a democratic future by Robert I Rotberg( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burma has been thrown back to an earlier, more nakedly brutal period of dictatorial excess. Since being defeated overwhelmingly in the 1990 elections, the State Peace and Development Council, a steely military junta despite its name, has repressed dissent, detained Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her colleagues, and violated the human rights and civil liberties of countless Burmese. What to do about Burma is a difficult question. This World Peace Foundation book provides an understanding of why answers are hard and a ready solution is not at hand. Its chapters, written by a number of the world's leading authorities on Burma, discuss the country's history and political culture, its economic and trade prospects, the power of the army, ethnic relations, its educational and health crises, and the drug trade

Mass atrocity crimes : preventing future outrages by John F. Kennedy School of Government( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can be done to combat genocide, ethnic cleansing, and other crimes against humanity? Why aren't current measures more effective? Is there hope for the future? These and other pressing questions surrounding human security are addressed head-on in this provocative and all-too-timely book. Millions of people, particularly in Africa, face daily the prospect of death at the hands of state or state-linked forces. Although officially both the United Nations and the African Union have adopted 'Responsibility to Protect' (R2P) principles, atrocities continue. The tenets of R2P, recently cited in a UN Outcomes Document, make it clear that states have a primary responsibility to protect their citizens from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity. When states cannot--or will not--protect their citizens, however, the international community must step into the breach. Why have efforts to stop horrific state-sanctioned crimes seen only limited success, despite widespread support of R2P? As this enlightening volume explains and illustrates, converting a norm into effective preventive measures remains difficult. The contributors examine the legal framework to inhibit war crimes, use of the emerging R2P norm, the role of the International Criminal Court, and new technologically sophisticated methods to gather early warnings of likely atrocity outbreaks. Together they show how mass atrocities may be anticipated, how they may be prevented, and when necessary, how they may be prosecuted"--Provided by publisher

Daar het Handvest de grondwet van de U.N.O. is, is bestudeering van zijn bepalingen noodzakelijk om de wereld van heden te kunnen begrijpen. Het procédé waardoor dit Handvest ontstond, via Dumbarton Oaks, de overeenkomsten van Yalta, via de commissies en de plenaire zittingen die leidden tot het definitieve document, worden nauwgezet ontleed door de schrijvers van dit Commentaar. Beginselen en doeleinden worden artikelgewijze onderzocht, teneinde de juiste aard vast te stellen van de door de landen aanvaarde verplichtingen, alsmede de beperkende factoren, welke men onder oogen moet zien bij de machtsuitoefening door een organisatie ,,gegrondvest op de souvereine gelijkheid van al hare leden
