Baker V. State And The Promise Of The New Judicial Federalism, Charles Baron, Lawrence Friedman Nov 2001

Baker V. State And The Promise Of The New Judicial Federalism, Charles Baron, Lawrence Friedman

Charles H. Baron

In Baker v. State, the Supreme Court of Vermont ruled that the state constitution’s Common Benefits Clause prohibits the exclusion of same-sex couples from the benefits and protections of marriage. Baker has been praised by constitutional scholars as a prototypical example of the New Judicial Federalism. The authors agree, asserting that the decision sets a standard for constitutional discourse by dint of the manner in which each of the opinions connects and responds to the others, pulls together arguments from other state and federal constitutional authorities, and provides a clear basis for subsequent development of constitutional principle.

Keeping Feminism In Its Place: Sex Segregation And The Domestication Of Female Academics, Nancy Levit Dec 2000

Keeping Feminism In Its Place: Sex Segregation And The Domestication Of Female Academics, Nancy Levit

Nancy Levit

The thesis of Keeping Feminism in Its Place is that women are being "domesticated" in the legal academy. This occurs in two ways, one theoretical and one very practical: denigration of feminism on the theoretical level and sex segregation of men and women on the experiential level intertwine to disadvantage women in academia in complex and subtle ways.

The article examines occupational sex segregation and role differentiation between male and female law professors, demonstrating statistically that in legal academia, women are congregated in lower-ranking, lower-paying, lower-prestige positions. It also traces how segregation by sex persists in substantive course teaching assignments ...

The Role Of State Processes In The Production Of ‘Ethnic’ Conflict: The Nation-State Dialectic, Europeanisation And Globalisation, Nicos Trimikliniotis Dec 2000

The Role Of State Processes In The Production Of ‘Ethnic’ Conflict: The Nation-State Dialectic, Europeanisation And Globalisation, Nicos Trimikliniotis

Nicos Trimikliniotis

This paper sets out to theorise the production of ‘ethnic’ and ‘national’ conflict via the complex interrelation between ‘Nation’ and ‘State’, in what is termed as the nation-state dialectic. It considers the production of ‘ethnic conflict’ and the role of nationalism, the state and class politics. It theorises the State as a social relation and as a power structure and then proceeds in linking it to the emergence of the nation-state construct. In theorising ‘the State’, the attempt is to go beyond considering it merely as a juridical-legal apparatus of power in a given territory, but to explore it also ...


Europeanisation And Modernisation: Locating Cyprus In The Southern European Context, Nicos Trimikliniotis Dec 2000

Europeanisation And Modernisation: Locating Cyprus In The Southern European Context, Nicos Trimikliniotis

Nicos Trimikliniotis

The question of ‘modernisation’ of the state in Cyprus has recently received a great deal of attention in Cypriot politics. During the last Parliamentary elections in May 2000, the question of ‘modernisation’ entered the political dictionary of the mainstream parties. All political forces professed to be ‘European’, they pledged commitment to the EU accession process and the debate over ‘modernisation’ was closely linked to the policies of harmonisation with the EU in the light of accession. However, little critical work exists to examine Europeanisation that assesses the specific policies employed, the policy goals and kind of issues the processes entails ...
