Theorizing Agency, Susan Carle Dec 2005

Theorizing Agency, Susan Carle

American University Law Review

Progressive legal scholars today exhibit contrasting views on the scope of legal actors' agency in making "choices" about how to lead their lives. Feminist legal scholar Joan C. Williams, for example, challenges claims that women who leave the paid workforce to stay home with children have made a voluntary choice to take this path. Critical race scholar Ian Haney López, on the other hand, argues that the social construction of racial identity occurs precisely through the many voluntary choices members of both subordinated and dominant racial groups make about matters that implicate racial meanings. Williams contests the idea of voluntary ...

Facilitating Prior Informed Consent Context Of Genetic Resources And Traditional Knowledge, Anne Perrault Jan 2004

Facilitating Prior Informed Consent Context Of Genetic Resources And Traditional Knowledge, Anne Perrault

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

This paper traces the evolution of free prior informed consent (“FPIC”) and describes the importance of FPIC to achieving the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity (“CBD”). It briefly highlights elements of current approaches to obtaining FPIC from national governments and local communities, identifies limitations to obtaining FPIC, and provides examples of how the Bonn Guidelines do and do not respond to these limitations. The paper does not provide a detailed analysis of all issues related to implementation of FPIC, but rather highlights issues that will, hopefully, promote constructive discussions to advance progress on the implementation of FPIC.
