Johannes A. van der Ven. Human rights or religious rules? Brill, 2010.

K3240.V46 2010

 

This book studies the relationship between religion and human rights and discusses how they appear to compete with one another.  The author explores a number of questions in this area including how to define religion and study it, how to understand religion from its relation with human rights in such a way that justice is done to both religion and human rights, and the impact religion might have on attitudes towards human rights. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rex J. Zedalis. Claims against Iraqi oil and gas : legal considerations and lessons learned. Cambridge University Press, 2010.

KMJ3532.Z43 2010

 

This book examines the legal issues surrounding international debt recovery on claims against Iraqi oil and gas.  It offers a snapshot view of Iraq’s outstanding debt obligations and an analysis of the significance of the theory of odious debt in the context of the Iraqi situation.  The author also discusses the lessons learned by the handling of the Iraqi debt experience and the transferability of those lessons to future situations in which resource-rich nations have financial obligations to other members of the world community or their nationals.
