Implementing Canada's Data Exclusivity Obligations And Protecting Personal Information In Clinical Trials, Alison Wong Oct 2017

Implementing Canada's Data Exclusivity Obligations And Protecting Personal Information In Clinical Trials, Alison Wong

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis explores, in the context of pharmaceutical clinical trials, Canadian federal, provincial and territorial personal data protection laws (which are consistent with Canada’s membership in the international Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development). This thesis establishes that, despite scholarly concerns over de-identifiability of data, these laws govern collection, use, dissemination, and disposal of data about individuals in clinical trials right through and including applications made by innovator pharmaceutical companies to the federal government for approval to market new drugs. At this latter point, federal data exclusivity regulations also apply (as required by international trade agreements). This thesis establishes ...


"They Should Be Here With Us": Beginning With Communities To Reimagine The Role Of Lawyers In Support Of Systemic Change, Britney De Costa Oct 2017

"They Should Be Here With Us": Beginning With Communities To Reimagine The Role Of Lawyers In Support Of Systemic Change, Britney De Costa

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis explores the roles lawyers might play to support community-led advocacy work towards systemic change from the standpoint of community advocates with lived experience of poverty. Using feminist standpoint theories and Foucault’s knowledge/power nexus to analyze findings from group meetings and in-depth interviews conducted with Voices Against Poverty, a grassroots advocacy group in Windsor, Ontario, this thesis looks at how we might reimagine how lawyers support their communities and mitigate the effects of their power by transforming their relationships. This thesis provides one example of how beginning from the standpoint of communities can help us to better ...

The role of Empirical study in legal decision, even in the rule making, was increased by the economic development with the occurrence of economic realism.

Re-Imagining The Scope Of Children’S Legal Protection During Armed Conflicts Under International Law, Anaise Muzima Sep 2017

Re-Imagining The Scope Of Children’S Legal Protection During Armed Conflicts Under International Law, Anaise Muzima

Master of Laws Research Papers Repository

The debate on the issue of child soldiers in international law has been mainly framed around the narrow question of whether child soldiers should be prosecuted or deemed innocent victims. This question, while essential, marginalized several considerations related to the multidimensional and intersecting identities and roles of child soldiers. Few scholars have investigated and evidenced the major gaps related to the legal protection of child soldiers in international law. While recognizing the potential related to the analysis on child soldiers’ criminal liability, this research proposes to focus on the examination of their vulnerabilities and to explore the legal foundations for ...

"I Feel Like I Just Need To Be More Careful, You Know?": Gay And Bisexual Post-Secondary Students Contemplate The Job Market, Kyle Carmelo Militello

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Through a qualitative lens, this research explores the concerns sexual minority students have about making the transition to full-time employment and examines how experiences of adversity shape concerns and anxieties. Unlike the previous generations before them, the students who participated in this study share the privilege of entering a labour market that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual identity. With the aim of complementing and advancing existing literature, the study is motivated by the following research question: despite being a protected class, do post-secondary gay and bisexual students hold anxieties about joining a potentially heteronormative workforce? To answer this ...


Visioning Legalized Consensual Adult Sex Work In Canada, Laurie Hayman Sep 2017

Visioning Legalized Consensual Adult Sex Work In Canada, Laurie Hayman

Master of Studies in Law Research Papers Repository

On December 6, 2014, Parliament enacted new criminal law addressing prostitution related offences in response to the 2013 decision at the Supreme Court in the matter of Bedford v Attorney General of Canada. This major research paper focuses on the criminal law concerning prostitution and sex work and the impact of the law on people who work in the sex trade. This major research paper analyses the new criminal law, and its stated purpose by critically examining the research materials used to help inform those who drafted the law, to conclude that the law is flawed. Parliament has ignored the ...


Transfer Pricing Rules In The Brics World: A Shifting Balance In Global Taxation Governance?, Thassiane Ayres Gossler Sep 2017

Transfer Pricing Rules In The Brics World: A Shifting Balance In Global Taxation Governance?, Thassiane Ayres Gossler

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The rise of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) as major emerging powers has challenged existing important structures in the global economy. For this reason, there is an expectation that this restructuring may also occur in the international tax regime. In this respect, transfer pricing is one potential area for cooperation between the BRICS, which have faced challenges in applying the existing international standard – the traditional arm’s length approach as established by the OECD – in practice. Therefore, this thesis investigates the differences between the transfer pricing regulations of the BRICS and those of the OECD, examining ...


Individual Levels Of Bias And Immigration Policies In The United States: A Test And Extension Of The Dual Processing Model Of Bias, Lorraine Phillips Sep 2017

Individual Levels Of Bias And Immigration Policies In The United States: A Test And Extension Of The Dual Processing Model Of Bias, Lorraine Phillips

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The present study was a test and extension of the Dual Process Model of bias on attitudes toward immigrants and immigration policy in the United States. The Dual Process Model predicts that people who score higher on either the Social Dominance Orientation scale or the Right Wing Authoritarian scale will hold more negative attitudes toward immigrants, particularly if immigrants are viewed as a threat. A sample of 315 participants from across the United States was recruited using Amazon’s M Turk site. This study used a combination of attitudinal measures, policy scales, and experimental vignettes. The study found that the ...


The Fight For Legal Recognition Of Same-Sex Parenting Rights In The United States, Nancy Tresil Sep 2017

The Fight For Legal Recognition Of Same-Sex Parenting Rights In The United States, Nancy Tresil

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This thesis focuses on how same sex couples within the United States claim specific parenting rights and to what extent can law promote social change. Since certain beliefs, values, and behaviors are accepted by some cultural groups or organizations in a society, many same sex couples believe that they should obtain an equal amount of legal entitlement instead of being limited or restricted from certain rights. The theoretical approach incorporates the concepts of legal consciousness and the importance of legal recognition. Legal consciousness is a form of legal awareness and empowerment of people involving issues in regards to the law ...


The Racialization And Exploitation Of Foreign Workers By The Law, Seiko Ishikawa Sep 2017

The Racialization And Exploitation Of Foreign Workers By The Law, Seiko Ishikawa

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Intense demand for cheap labor in the United States has resulted in a widespread effect of employing high skilled immigrants in STEM fields. Examining how companies use high-skilled visa categories to create a flexible cheaper immigrant workforce, this paper demonstrates that skilled immigrants from Asia are being exploited through neutral skills-based criteria that are de facto racially biased. The purpose of this paper is to raise awareness of how, from the perspective of law and society, skills-based immigration works primarily to benefit the technological industry rather than skilled immigrants.


The Politics Of Shorter Hours And Corporate-Centered Society: A History Of Work-Time Regulation In The United States And Japan, Keisuke Jinno Sep 2017

The Politics Of Shorter Hours And Corporate-Centered Society: A History Of Work-Time Regulation In The United States And Japan, Keisuke Jinno

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Shorter working hours drew much attention as a means of fighting unemployment and crisis in capitalism during the first half of the twentieth century. Nowadays, shorter work-time is rarely considered a policy option to fix economic or social issues in the United States and Japan. This dissertation presents a history of work-time regulation in the United States and Japan to examine how and why its developments and stalemate took place.

In the big picture, developments of work-time regulation during the first half of the twentieth century were a part of concessional modifications of class relations, a common phenomenon in many ...


Unilateral Non-Colonial Secessions: An Affirmation Of The Right To Self-Determination And A Legal Exception To The Use Of Force In International Law, Ilya Berlin Aug 2017

Unilateral Non-Colonial Secessions: An Affirmation Of The Right To Self-Determination And A Legal Exception To The Use Of Force In International Law, Ilya Berlin

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Secession has contributed to nearly 50 intra-state armed conflicts around the world, and remains a complex issue in public international law. Over the past 72 years, several cases stand out as providing evidence of state practice with regards to invoking a successful right to unilateral secession: Bangladesh, Croatia, South Sudan, East Timor, Eritrea and Kosovo, to name a few. However, apart from invoking a right to secession, these cases also share a common factor that legitimized their independence: their Unilateral Non-Colonial (UNC) secessions became legal as a result of two factors: (i) an invocation of a right to self-determination which ...


The Fight Against Breast Cancer: A Policy And Programmatic Approach, Nandi Robinson Aug 2017

The Fight Against Breast Cancer: A Policy And Programmatic Approach, Nandi Robinson

Master's Projects and Capstones

Abstract

Breast cancer continues to remain a significant health issue for women. Previously thought to only occur among postmenopausal women, breast cancer has impacted women of different ages; and rates of breast cancer have various impacts among different ethnic groups. For women living in a toxic environment, many of them have become the new wave of breast cancer cases. Screening and detection have succeeded in decreasing mortality rates. However, more research is needed in finding an efficient method of treatment. In the effort to assist in the fight against breast cancer through a policy and programmatic angle, I am fulfilling ...


Achieving Equality For Women In Labour And Employment – A Comparative Study Of Colombia And Canada, Lina M. Hernandez Aug 2017

Achieving Equality For Women In Labour And Employment – A Comparative Study Of Colombia And Canada, Lina M. Hernandez

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The primary focus of this thesis is to analyze and compare the legal systems enacted to protect working women in Colombia and Canada. This thesis focuses on: the protection of maternity and parental rights; the principle of equal pay for work of equal value; and discrimination in employment (including harassment). This research argues that the legislative and judicial changes made in each country to protect working women have not led to substantive equality for working women. This thesis also argues that there is a gap between international and national standards, thus a law reform is appropriate and needed in both ...


The Effects Of Employment On Recidivism Among Delinquent Juveniles, Leigh Kassem Aug 2017

The Effects Of Employment On Recidivism Among Delinquent Juveniles, Leigh Kassem

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Current research indicates an association between intense adolescent work (twenty hours or more per week) and delinquent behavior. It has been widely speculated that this relationship is spurious, occurring only as a result of other factors which are common to both offending and intense employment. The current study attempts to fill a gap in the literature by utilizing the Pathways to Desistance dataset to examine the evolution of the relationship between work and self-reported offending in a longitudinal sample of juvenile offenders. Work intensity and consistency, social capital, and expectations for success were analyzed as potential predictors of recidivism or ...


A Cross-Sectional Exploration Of Household Financial Reactions And Homebuyer Awareness Of Registered Sex Offenders In A Rural, Suburban, And Urban County., John Charles Navarro Aug 2017

A Cross-Sectional Exploration Of Household Financial Reactions And Homebuyer Awareness Of Registered Sex Offenders In A Rural, Suburban, And Urban County., John Charles Navarro

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

As stigmatized persons, registered sex offenders betoken instability in communities. Depressed home sale values are associated with the presence of registered sex offenders even though the public is largely unaware of the presence of registered sex offenders. Using a spatial multilevel approach, the current study examines the role registered sex offenders influence sale values of homes sold in 2015 for three U.S. counties (rural, suburban, and urban) located in Illinois and Kentucky within the social disorganization framework. Homebuyers were surveyed to examine whether awareness of local registered sex offenders and the homebuyer’s community type operate as moderators between ...


Chinese Conflicts Of Law: A Restatement And Legisprudence Proposal, Shaoming Zhu Aug 2017

Chinese Conflicts Of Law: A Restatement And Legisprudence Proposal, Shaoming Zhu

SJD Dissertations

China has a long history of addressing conflict issues between different legal systems. However, there is as yet no unified legislation on Conflicts of Law in China. Rules on the topic of Conflicts of Law can be found in various legal sources without a clear structure or statement of their hierarchy and effectiveness. This research draws a comprehensive, well-organized map of Conflicts of Law rules in China by introducing the evolution of Conflicts of Law in China, defining the scope of Conflicts of Law as a legal science, restating the structure and contents of Chinese Conflicts of Law rules, and ...
