Aoife Nolan. Children's socio-economic rights, democracy and the courts. Hart, 2011.

K639.N653 2011

 

Despite the significant growth in academic interest in both children's rights and socio-economic rights over the last two decades, children's socio-economic rights are a comparatively neglected area.  This book focuses on the circumstances in which the courts can and should give effect to the socio-economic rights of children.  It addresses a wide range of issues including children as citizens and their position in relation to democratic decision-making processes; the implications of children and their rights for democratic and constitutional theory; the role of the courts in ensuring the enforcement of children's rights; and the debates surrounding the litigation and adjudication of socio-economic rights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plundered nations? : successes and failures in natural resource extraction / edited by Paul Collier, Anthony J. Venables. Palgrave Macmillan, c2011.

HC85.P58 2011

 

The study of natural resource extraction in resource-rich countries often shows that plunder, rather than prosperity, has become the norm. Management of natural resources differs widely in every state, but a close examination of the decision making chains in various states highlights the key principles that need to be followed to avoid distortion and dependence. This book consists of eight case studies investigating the political economy of the decision chain, revealing where various states have met with success, or failed disastrously.  It provides a unique insight into how different countries have handled their resource extraction.
