Erich Vranes. Trade and the environment : fundamental issues in international law, WTO law, and legal theory. Oxford University Press, 2009.

K3585.V73 2009

 

This book analyzes the relevance of the WTO legal system for environmental protection by examining the 'horizontal' interaction between WTO law and 'other' international law, the 'vertical' relationship between WTO law and domestic law, and the contents and the interrelations between fundamental provisions of WTO law. This study relies on established insights from legal theory in order to achieve greater clarity in legal argumentation. The main results of this analysis are applied to two topical instances of international regime interplay, namely the relevance of WTO law for international and domestic measures protecting the earth's climate and the ozone layer.

 

 

New technologies and human rights / edited by Thérèse Murphy. Oxford University Press, 2009.

K3611.G46 N49 2009

 

This book contributes to the increasing calls for regulation - or better regulation - of new technologies. Drawing on an international team of legal scholars, it reviews and develops the role of human rights in the regulation of new technologies. Three controversies at the intersection between human rights and new technology are given particular attention. First, how the expansive application of human rights could contribute to the creation of a brave new world of choice, where human dignity is fundamentally compromised; second, how new technologies, and our regulatory responses to them, could be a threat to human rights; and, third, how human rights could be used to create better regulation of these technologies.
