Jeffrey Davis. Seeking human rights justice in Latin America: truth, extra-territorial courts, and the process of justice. Cambridge University Press, 2014.

KG574.D38 2014

 

This book examines how victims of human rights violations in Latin America seek justice both in their home countries and in international tribunals such as the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Author Jeffrey Davis presents case studies from several Latin American countries, along with firsthand information gathered from interviews with the parties involved. Through detailed analyses of these cases, he addresses important questions about the goals of the legal process and the use of government secrecy to provide immunity for rights violators.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joyeeta Gupta. The history of global climate governance. Cambridge University Press, 2014.

K3585.5.G87 2014

 

This brief history by Joyeeta Gupta provides an overview of the political and economic issues surrounding global climate governance since 1979, when the first World Climate Conference identified global warming as a serious threat to humanity. As the paradigm of leadership by developed nations has broken down, Gupta argues, there is now a burden on developing nations to take the initiative in order to mitigate the effects of climate change. In the book’s concluding section, she offers a series of proposals based on a framework of international law and constitutionalism.
