Karen Engle. The elusive promise of indigenous development : rights, culture, strategy. Duke University Press, 2010.

K3247.E54 2010

 

Around the world, indigenous peoples use international law to make claims for heritage, territory, and economic development.  This book traces the history of these claims, considering the prevalence of particular legal frameworks and their costs and benefits for indigenous groups.  It also highlights the dilemmas that accompany each legal strategy, as well as the persistent elusiveness of economic development for indigenous peoples.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Helen Keller, Magdalena Forowicz, Lorenz Engi. Friendly settlements before the European Court of Human Rights : theory and practice. Oxford University Press, 2010.

KJC5138.K45 2010

 

This book discusses the friendly settlement procedure, an important tool for the reduction of the European Court of Human Rights' (ECtHR) case load, and explains that recent practice demonstrates that this procedure is increasingly resorted to by applicants and Contracting States.  It also evaluates this largely unexplored instrument from doctrinal as well as practical perspectives, making recommendations to render the negotiations before the ECtHR more efficient and professional.
