Lars Kirchhoff, Constructive interventions: paradigms, process and practice of international mediation, Kluwer Law International, c2008.

KZ6045.C665 2008

 

This book exposes the contemporary structural barriers to effective conflict resolution, and then defines where adjudication should end, and where ADR and mediated third party intervention should begin. The author argues that by bringing adjudication and ADR together, the best chance for an effective system of international justice emerges. The work illustrates the various departure points and perspectives of scholars, discusses who should become involved in conflicts as a third party, systematically conveys the nature and consequences of intervention, and clarifies the particular model of international mediation under development through UN initiatives.

 

 

Simon Baughen, International trade and the protection of the environment, Routledge-Cavendish, c2007.

K3585.B38 2007

 

Analyzing globalization and the increasing tension it has caused between the goals of free trade and environmental protection, this book provides a comprehensive and detailed legal analysis, both at the national and international level, of what looks to become the new legal order of the twenty-first century. The author asks whether the treatment of "measures tantamount to expropriation" will lead to a regulatory chill on environmental protection and analyzes the possibilities for claims before the UK courts that are based on alleged violations of international law.
