Lessons of everyday law by Roderick A Macdonald( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policy-makers and lawyers routinely confront the problems of discovering and representing reality, and of understanding and interpreting rules. This book shows that many of the same issues are confronted daily by citizens in their various roles as parents, children, neighbours, and members of small groups. Everyday life provides an unlimited supply of images and events that raise some of the most complex issues of legal theory. Using examples drawn from the "little legal systems of everyday life", the author shows the relevance of these stories to the study of policy-making and law reform, and enriches our understanding of the forms, aspirations, and limits of law -- wherever it is found

New perspectives on the public-private divide( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The separation between public and private spheres has structured much of our thinking about human organizations. Scholars from nearly all disciplines use the notion of a public-private divide as a means to order knowledge and better understand the mechanisms that govern and shape human behaviour and institutions. In legal and socio-legal analysis, the distinction informs the differences between state and non-state actors and between public good and private property. This rich collection of essays explores how the public-private divide influences, challenges, and interacts with law and law reform. Through various case studies, the contributors reflect on this complex dichotomy's role in structuring the socio-legal environment for the personal, social, economic, and governance relationships of citizens. They demonstrate that while the split between the public and the private is a useful way to understand the world, it is always only an ideological construct, and as such open to challenge. Of primary interest to legal thinkers and practitioners, this volume will also hold sway with sociologists, historians, and political scientists with an interest in the nature of the public-private distinction, and its role in law and society

Exploring a broad range of case studies - including young women in conflict with the law, child soldiers, welfare recipients, genetic testing, biotechnology and new technologies - the contributors explore whether the concept of risk has undermined our sense of trust in society, effectively eroding the definition of citizenship, marginalizing particular people and groups, needlessly heightening societal fears and rendering invisible social inequalities
Re-fashioning the dialogue : urban aboriginal governance in Canada by Robert Groves( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reports on the findings of a joint research project that focused on Aboriginal governance in urban settings and the challenge of engaging youth. The project involved literature reviews, legal policy analysis, program & service documentation, best practices surveys, and ten focus circles with Aboriginal groups. The introduction sets the context for the project, discusses four lines of debate regarding Aboriginal urban self-government, and reviews the rest of the report. Part II sets out two broad normative frameworks for examining proposals for urban self-government in order to explore key issues involved in considering various governance options. Part II subjects basic models advanced to date for urban governance to a three-step assessment. It first reviews self-government models commonly suggested in the two dominant normative frameworks of Aboriginal rights law and democratic liberalism. It then draws on field research to assess issues of practicality in relation to urban governance. Finally, the report reviews the perceptions of urban Aboriginal people themselves, and particularly the youth that participated in the focus circles, as to their own sense of priorities and preferences for the nature and form that urban governance should take. Appendices include an annotated bibliography, responses to a survey of urban youth programs, and focus circle results
