Brian K. Grodsky. The costs of justice : how new leaders respond to previous rights abuses. University of Notre Dame Press, c2010.

K3240.G76 2010

 

This book provides qualitative analyses of how transitional justice processes have evolved in diverse ways in post-communist states by examining the decision-making processes and goals of those actors who contributed to key policy decisions.  The author challenges the argument that transitional justice in post-repressive states is largely a function of the relative power of new versus old elites and maintains that a new regime’s transitional justice policy is closely linked to its capacity to provide goods and services expected by constituents, not to political power struggles.

 

 

 

 

 

The eclipse of the legality principle in the European Union / edited by Leonard Besselink, Frans Pennings, Sacha Prechal. Aspen Publishers, c2011.

KJE5640.E25 2011

 

The principle of legality protects the citizen against the arbitrary use of power and demands a legal basis to legitimize State action.  This book exposes a spectrum of ways in which the traditional legality principle is under pressure in Europe because of the creation of new legal orders, including that of the EU, and the interaction between these new orders and the State.  It also highlights other factors such as expertise driven governance, difficulties of international organizations to meet their objectives due to a lack of adequate powers, and lack of parliamentary control.
