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 180 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]
Critical indigenous rights studies( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The field of 'critical indigenous rights studies' is a complex one that benefits from an interdisciplinary perspective and a realist (as opposed to an idealised) approach to indigenous peoples. This book draws on sociology of law, anthropology, political sciences and legal sciences in order to address emerging issues in the study of indigenous rights and identify directions for future research. The first part of the volume investigates how changing identities and cultures impact rights protection, analysing how policies on development and land, and processes such as migration, interrelate with the mobilisation of identities and the realisation of rights. In the second part, new approaches related to indigenous peoples' rights are scrutinised as to their potential and relevance. They include addressing legal tensions from an indigenous peoples' rights perspective, creating space for counter-narratives on international law and designing new instruments. Throughout the text, case studies with wide geographical scope are presented, ranging from Latin America (the book's focus) to Egypt, Rwanda and Scandinavia."--
Indigenous rights entwined with nature conservation by Ellen Desmet( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study investigates how nature conservation initiatives interact with the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities from a human rights and legal anthropological perspective. The book is distinctive in that it provides a comprehensive review of international human rights law in the context of nature conservation; a critical appraisal of Peruvian nature conservation legislation in relation to the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities; and a thorough analysis of the interaction between three levels of regulation : the international level of human rights, the national level of Peru, and the local level of a specific protected area (the Güeppí Reserved Zone)"--Jacket
Routledge international handbook of children's rights studies by Wouter Vandenhole( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) childrens rights have assumed a central position in a wide variety of disciplines and policies. This handbook offers an engaging overview of the contemporary research landscape for those people engaged in the theory and practice of childrens rights. The volume consists of two parts with the first providing an insight into interdisciplinary approaches to childrens rights, with contributions from history, childhood studies, sociology, social work and educational sciences, law, anthropology, and gender studies. The second part considers key issues in childrens rights situating them at the intersection of the global and the local. This combination of disciplinary approaches and thematic analysis allows the reader to gain a deep understanding of childrens rights. The handbook takes a critical approach to the topic, questioning and analysing assumptions underlying childrens rights practices. The specially commissioned chapters have been written by renowned scholars and researchers working in the field and come together to provide an invaluable guide to the challenges and dilemmas currently facing childrens rights"--
Integrated human rights in practice : rewriting human rights decisions( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 107 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
