Digest on human rights and access to justice( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of human rights and its attendant these of access to justice have remained relevant areas to the legal fraternity. This relevance resonates well in the fields of teaching and learning the law, consultancy, legal practice and advocacy, law reform, and judicial decision making. In the East African region, however, the availability of research and reference material for these two areas of learning has remained low. It is against the backdrop of the foregoing that the publishing of the Digest on Human Rights and Access to Justice in East Africa is an important aspect of the development of the law in the region. Bringing together decisions of both municipal courts within the East Africa region beyond, the digest has breathed a totally new lease of life into the practice and comparative legal studies in the area of human rights and access to justice. To a large extent, the digest has robbed practitioners of law of the excuses attendant to poor advocacy in the arena of human rights. It has robbed judicial officer of the excuses attendant to shallow and poorly reasoned judgments. It has robbed students and teachers of law the excuses attendant to poorly researched theses in the area of human rights. Definitely, it has added immense value to the consumers of human rights and access to justice. This Digest is a product of the fruitful on-going collaboration between LawAfrica Publishing Ltd and East Africa Law Society. Both LawAfrica with its East Africa Law Reports, and EALS, with its ever-growing collaboration between East African lawyers, yearn for greater integration of legal practice in the three East African countries. This Digest is a contribution to that desire
Moldova : Policy Notes for the Government by World Bank( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set of policy notes is intended to provide suggestions to the new Government on policy actions for addressing the various economic and social challenges that Moldova faces. Economic and social policy issues are the focus of this document. The notes have been prepared in the context of the current economic crisis, with short-term priorities and suggestions for immediate policy actions highlighted. This guidance for responding to the current crisis is followed by a medium-term agenda, which outlines possible policy measures for the longer term to promote and support sustainable development. However, it must be noted, that acting on these policy notes effectively will only be possible in a political climate of consensus in which the wounds left by the post-election conflict are allowed to heal. This will need reaffirmation of Moldova's citizens' basic human and civil rights. However, the global economic crisis has significantly clouded Moldova's immediate outlook. In addition, due to the global economic crisis, the economy of the Transnistria region has collapsed. Russia is now paying the civil service wage bill and pensions. An important contribution to the reintegration of the region would be for the Government of Moldova to assist in mitigating the impact of the crisis on the poor in Transnistria
Understanding the local power structure in rural Bangladesh by David Lewis( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the rural power structure presents new qualitative data to analyse the changing formal and informal institutions which govern people's lives in one area of rural Bangladesh. The research explores the ways in which disadvantaged individuals and groups seek to increase their influence and further their economic and social goals. It documents the barriers and challenges that people living in poverty face, and explores the current limits to these local change processes
Power and policy slippage in Tanzania : discussing national ownership of development by Göran Hydén( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of mainland Tanzania shows that power is centralised and significantly influenced by development partners. Power is also dispersed among patronage-oriented individuals who fail to coordinate or act in a strategic manner in order to realise the common objectives stated in strategic development documents and declarations. The study proposes how analysis and monitoring of power could be conducted in more systematic ways. It offers a set of proposals for local actors and development partners that would help bring a more equal character to their relationships. There are ways in which civil society and state institutions could enter into a competitive and constructive relationship under the auspices of national ownership of the development process. The conclusion discusses how power analyses can be used by development partners and partner institutions alike

The employment nexus between growth and poverty : an Asian perspective by Siddiqur Rahman Osmani( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent empirical studies demonstrate that sustained and rapid economic growth has invariably been accompanied by reduction of poverty and, conversely, persistent growth failures have invariably been accompanied by persistent failure to reduce poverty. Raising the rate of growth is thus being increasingly recognised as necessary for poverty reduction

This study is broad in scope: it covers agricultural land as well as urban. It covers water, wetlands, coastal areas, forests, rangelands, protected areas, genetic resources and petroleum and minerals. It shows how strongly development priorities such as pro-poor growth and the fulfilment of human rights apply to natural resource tenure. Environmental sustainability and climate change, gender equality, peace, security and democratic governance are all closely related issues. Experiences and cases from different parts of the world illustrate key messages; supported by a selection of photos. The overview and the recommendations may provide guidance for the development and implementation of policies and programmes that are urgently needed
