Achieving Equality For Women In Labour And Employment – A Comparative Study Of Colombia And Canada, Lina M. Hernandez 2017 The University of Western Ontario

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 ...

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

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 ...

Exclusionary Megacities, Wendell Pritchett, Shitong Qiao 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Exclusionary Megacities, Wendell Pritchett, Shitong Qiao

Faculty Scholarship

Human beings should live in places where they are most productive, and megacities, where information, innovation and opportunities congregate, would be the optimal choice. Yet megacities in both China and the U.S. are excluding people by limiting housing supply. Why, despite their many differences, is the same type of exclusion happening in both Chinese and U.S. megacities? Urban law and policy scholars argue that Not-In-My-Backyard (NIMBY) homeowners are taking over megacities in the U.S. and hindering housing development therein. They pin their hopes on an efficient growth machine that makes sure “above all, nothing gets in the ...


A Comment On Christopher Johnson's "Post-Trial Judicial Review Of Criminal Convictions: A Comparative Study Of The United States And Finland", Malick W. Ghachem 2017 University of Maine School of Law

A Comment On Christopher Johnson's "Post-Trial Judicial Review Of Criminal Convictions: A Comparative Study Of The United States And Finland", Malick W. Ghachem

Maine Law Review

Christopher Johnson has dug deeply into a neglected corner of comparative law and emerged with some fascinating and important contrasts. Finland does not appear often on the radar screen of American legal scholars, even those who primarily focus is comparative law. And so we are indebted to Johnson for reminding us that critical comparative insights can arise out of studying the experiences of nations deemed “marginal” to the international system, and to mainstream comparative law scholarship (which itself occupies a position of uncertain import in American legal scholarship generally). Johnson’s findings are all the more significant because they come ...

Deepening Lawyer Role Education To Serve Students And Society, Deborah Weimer 2017 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Deepening Lawyer Role Education To Serve Students And Society, Deborah Weimer

Hastings International and Comparative Law Review

The last decade has seen an increase in focus on the plight of the unrepresented, as well as a recognition that these needs are growing dramatically. In 2006, the American Bar Association formally adopted a resolution calling for the provision of counsel to low income individuals in cases involving shelter, sustenance, safety, health and child custody. The ABA recognized the social costs in each of these areas when counsel is not available.


Foundations For Sustainable Development: Harmonizing Islam, Nature And Law, Norah bin Hamad 2017 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Foundations For Sustainable Development: Harmonizing Islam, Nature And Law, Norah Bin Hamad

Dissertations & Theses

Human society is weakening Earth’s environment, its only home. In 2015, nations agreed on a new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide restoring and sustaining the wellbeing of peoples everywhere. If the SDGs are to succeed, all cultural and religious communities will need to urgently implement them. Islam offers a holistic view of God’s creation and the Qur’an clearly sets forth duties to care for the Earth. In the past, most people have ignored the world-wide trends of environmental degradation which scientist have reported. There is a pressing need to expand education and public awareness ...


French And Italian Food Waste Legislation: An Example For Other Eu Member States To Follow?, Luis González Vaqué 2017 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

French And Italian Food Waste Legislation: An Example For Other Eu Member States To Follow?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué, in his article French and Italian food waste legislation: An example for other EU Member States to follow?, draws our attention to the dramatic reality of food loss and waste and hunger, malnutrition and human deaths caused by lack of food. The sad news is that according to the FAO’s latest estimates, 1.3 billion tonnes of food is lost or wasted in the world every year, representing a third of total food production. Much more importantly and absolutely unacceptable is the fact that over 1,000 billion people in the world suffer from hunger, 148 ...
