Islamic law and international human rights law : searching for common ground? by Anver M Emon( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between Islamic law and international human rights law has been the subject of considerable, and heated, debate in recent years. The usual starting point has been to test one system by the standards of the other, asking is Islamic law 'compatible' with international human rights standards, or vice versa. This approach quickly ends in acrimony and accusations of misunderstanding. By overlaying one set of norms on another we overlook the deeply contextual nature ofhow legal rules operate in a society, and meaningful comparison and discussion is impossible. In this volume, leading
Bank confidentiality by F. W Neate( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on material presented at the International Bar Association's 1989 Annual Banking Seminar, "Bank Confidentiality" is a varied and lively discussion by sixteen specialist contributors. The contents include the nature, extent and exceptions to the bank's duty of confidence, customer's remedies and insider trading. The book analyses these issues in the light of civil law, criminal law, statutory and non-statutory requirements, in thirteen European countries, the United States, Canada and Australia. Efforts to combat money laundering (particularly in relation to drug trafficking) demand on occasions that the veil of secrecy be lifted from information held by banks on customers and their accounts. Although international measures are being taken, much of the relevant law is at national level and "secrecy jurisdictions" still abound

Set-off law and practice : an international handbook by International Bar Association( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 2nd edition of Set-Off Law and Practice - An International Handbook is an invaluable guide to the application and practice of the rules of set-off in over 30 jurisdictions spanning Europe, Asia and the Americas. The work provides an at-a-glance port of call for UK banking and finance solicitors and foreign lawyers who wish to establish the pitfalls of set-off in a foreign jurisdiction. Since the publication of the first edition the use of set-off as a mechanism for risk reduction in cross-border financial contracts has continued to increase and the global financial crisis has meant that cases of bankruptcy and insolvency are more common than ever. Written by an expert contributor team from around the world, each chapter explains the principles of the rules of set-off in the jurisdiction concerned, followed by a short case study analysing the principles and relevant problems in practice. The book also includes comparative tables showing at a glance how the different aspects of set-off are applied in each country. This second edition has been fully updated to take into account developments in legislation and case law. New jurisdictions including China, Russia, Romania and Turkey have been added along with an introductory chapter written by the Editors drawing together the common themes and practices from the individual jurisdictional chapters"--Provided by publisher

Media law and ethics in the 21st century : protecting free expression and curbing abuses by James Lewis( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exposure of the excesses of the tabloid press, the Leveson Inquiry and subsequent fears over relinquishing rights to free expression have highlighted the importance of serious journalism for a civilised society and a fully functioning democracy. This collection of writings brings together some of the foremost authorities on law, journalism and ethics in order to illuminate the unique and ongoing debates on media ethics and the competing rights to privacy and free expression. The chapters present a range of different perspectives on 21st century events in light of key concerns, including public interest, privacy protection and the challenges posed by the internet, offering responses to media practices and informing public policy. In addressing the current and future challenges facing different parties, and considering how to strike a balance between freedom of speech and confidentiality, this volume stands as a pertinent and influential examination of the efficacy of media and privacy laws in the UK and the US. Editors: James Lewis is Director of Media Content at the International Bar Association. Paul Crick is an Independent Consultant for the International Bar Association. Publisher's note
