Cheryl Ann Bishop. Access to information as a human right. LFB Scholarly Pub., 2012.

K3255.B57 2012

 

This book provides a comprehensive examination of international human rights law and explains four conceptualizations of access to information as a human right. Rights to information have been linked to the right to free expression, the right to privacy, the right to a healthy environment, and the right to the truth about human rights abuses. The author concludes that a human right to access information is evolving in disparate ways. The current evolution of access rights creates a patchwork system of guarantees; nonetheless, the freedom-of-expression conceptualization holds the most promise for proving a broad right of access.

Daniel Wilsher. Immigration detention : law, history, politics. Cambridge University Press, c2012.

K3277.W55 2012

 

The liberal legal ideal of protection of the individual against administrative detention without trial is embodied in the habeas corpus tradition. However, the use of detention to control immigration has gone from a wartime exception to normal practice, thus calling into question modern states' adherence to the rule of law. This book traces how modern states have come to use long-term detention of immigrants without judicial control and proposes a set of standards to ensure that efforts to control migration, including the use of detention, conform to principles of law and uphold basic rights regardless of immigration status.
