La Charte des Nations Unies : commentaire, article par article by Jean Pierre Cot ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Signée le 26 juin 1945, entrée en vigueur le 24 octobre suivant, la Charte des Nations Unies a 60 ans. Si les résultats sont, à l'évidence, en deçà des espérances, l'action des États, la firme propre des institutions, la souplesse du texte, ont permis aux Nations Unies de s'adapter aux exigences changeantes des relations internationales en dépit des mutations considérables qui ont marqué, ces 60 dernières années: guerre froide, décolonisation, recherche d'un développement durable, menaces nucléaire et du terrorisme... Cette remarquable faculté d'adaptation, le miracle permanent que constitue l'existence même de l'Organisation, l'influence qu'elle continue d'exercer en dépit des tentations de l'unilatéralisme, justifient une étude d'ensemble de la Charte, dans une perspective juridique, à la lumière de la pratique. Sous la direction de Jean-Pierre Cot et Alain Pellet, 129 juristes - parmi lesquels 3 anciens Présidents, le Vice-Président et 2 juges à la Cour internationale de Justice, plusieurs ministres ou anciens ministres, de nombreux fonctionnaires internationaux ou diplomates familiers des Nations Unies, des membres de la Commission du Droit international et une pléiade d'universitaires et de chercheurs - venant de 24 pays, mais tous francophones et se réclamant de la tradition juridique latine, ont uni leurs efforts pour faire le point des connaissances actuelles sur les Nations Unies. Comme les deux éditions précédentes, celle-ci se présente sous la forme d'un commentaire article par article, soigneusement mis à jour; mais elle a été enrichie de contributions abordant des sujets transversaux qui ne trouvent pas place dans le commentaire d'une disposition déterminée."--P. [4] of cover

The media and the Rwanda genocide by Alexander Thompson ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It was the French philosopher, Voltaire, who wrote: 'We owe respect to the living; to the dead we owe only truth.' In the case of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, the news media accomplished neither of Voltaire's admonitions. Confronted by Rwanda's horrors, Western news media for the most part turned away, then muddled the story when they did pay attention. And hate media organs in Rwanda--through their journalists, broadcasters and media executives--played an instrumental role in laying the groundwork for genocide, then actively participated in the extermination campaign. On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the Rwanda genocide, the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University in Ottawa hosted a one-day symposium on 13 March 2004, entitled 'The Media and the Rwanda Genocide.' The symposium examined in tandem the role of both the international media and Rwanda's domestic news organizations in the cataclysmic events of 1994. The Carleton symposium brought together for the first time an international collection of experts as well as some of the actors from the Rwandan drama; it also inspired this collection of papers. Many of the contributions found here are based on papers delivered at the Carleton event, but others were commissioned or have been reprinted here because of their valuable contribution to the debate. The symposium was made possible by generous contributions from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Government of Canada, through the Global Issues Bureau of the Foreign Affairs department and the Canadian International Development Agency. The IDRC has also played a key role in the publication of this collection; it continues to support Carleton's efforts to build a Media and Genocide Archive and to establish a partnership with the School of Journalism and Communication at the National University of Rwanda in Butare through a project called The Rwanda Initiative."--Excerpted from preface
