Julio Barboza. The environment, risk and liability in international law. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2011.

K579.L5B368 2010


Risk has always been an element of life. Yet modern technology continues to spread environmentally hazardous activity beyond State boundaries. These hazardous—yet socially useful—activities exist in a grey area between legality and wrongfulness. This book explains the important role liability plays in risk management and environmental protection, within the realm of International Law. The text explores questions such as the lawfulness of acts which negatively affect the environment, as well as who should be liable for transfrontier damages.







Steve Peers. EU justice and home affairs law. 3rd ed. Oxford University Press, 2011

KJE5977.P44 2011


This book provides a detailed overview, analysis, and critique of the Justice and Home Affairs Law of the European Union.  This new edition has been updated and expanded to take account of the major changes introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon and recent developments in legislation and case-law.  It includes analysis of the widened jurisdiction of the EU's Court of Justice, the revised rules on the participation of the UK, Ireland and Denmark and relations with non-EU countries, and of the impact of the new framework for human rights law in the EU.
