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 ...


The World’S Trademark Powerhouse: A Critique Of China’S New Trademark Law, Xuan-Thao Nguyen 2017 Seattle University School of Law

The World’S Trademark Powerhouse: A Critique Of China’S New Trademark Law, Xuan-Thao Nguyen

Seattle University Law Review

China has become the world’s trademark powerhouse with the largest number of trademark registrations for goods and services. Parallel to the new rise is the explosion of scandals concerning trademarked goods, causing numerous deaths, massive hospitalizations, and consumer defection from domestic brands. Instead of having a trademark law with consumer protection as the cornerstone, China’s new Trademark Law will cement China as the world’s manufacturer of trademarks. This Article is the first to critically examine China’s new Trademark Law. The new law mainly centers on creating procedural measures for more trademark registrations, maintaining China’s trademark ...

Public Law, Private Actors: The Impact Of Human Rights On Business Investors In China Symposium: Doing Business In China, Diane F. Orentlicher, Timothy A. Gelatt 2017 Selected Works

Public Law, Private Actors: The Impact Of Human Rights On Business Investors In China Symposium: Doing Business In China, Diane F. Orentlicher, Timothy A. Gelatt

Diane Orentlicher

Should companies invest at all in countries, like China, where severe human rights abuses are pervasive? If they do invest, should they restrict their operations to areas of the country that have a comparatively good human rights record? Are there basic principles that transnational companies should observe to ensure, at a minimum, that they do not become complicit in a host government's abrogation of universally-recognized human rights? Should such principles be enforced by Executive or congressional fiat, or should companies take primary responsibility for policing themselves? How can companies that wish to factor human rights considerations into their business ...

Public Resource Ownership And Community Engagement In A Modern Energy Landscape, Samantha Hepburn 2017 Centre for Energy and Natural Resources Law, Deakin Law School, Australia

Public Resource Ownership And Community Engagement In A Modern Energy Landscape, Samantha Hepburn

Pace Environmental Law Review

The onshore resource conflicts that have erupted in the Eastern states of Australia highlight the deep need for axiomatic structural change in public resource ownership frameworks. Much of the conflict that has arisen stems from the failure of the state, as owner, to give proper regard to the social and environmental concerns relevant to the expansion of onshore resource development. The underlying rationale for vesting resources in the state is to ensure they are managed for the benefit of the community as a whole. The implied sumption is that public benefit obligations are met through state administration because this is ...

Living Within The Margins: The Constitutional Culture Of Irish Life Law And Literature, Meghan Keator 2017 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Living Within The Margins: The Constitutional Culture Of Irish Life Law And Literature, Meghan Keator

Honors Theses and Student Projects

Serving as a stepping stone to asserting independence from British authority and oppression, the Bunreacht Na hÉireann, Ireland’s modern constitution, allowed the nation and its people finally to shape themselves by their own legal standards, customs, and norms. Yet, after years of oppression from forced British standards, Ireland began the search for its own distinct voice as a newly liberated, competitive country. This thesis explores how the Irish Constitution contributes to shaping a homogenous society that promotes normative views and behaviors that damagingly marginalize minority groups–who differ from such social standards. By examining the specific language, diction, order ...


The Tension Between Korean Environmental Protection Policies And U.S. Investors' Interests Under The U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement, Changsung Kang 2017 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

The Tension Between Korean Environmental Protection Policies And U.S. Investors' Interests Under The U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement, Changsung Kang

Theses and Dissertations

South Korea’s low carbon and ‘green growth’ policies possess potential regulatory changes that reduce foreign investors’ interests and legitimate expectations concerning the profitability of their businesses. Although international investment law protects a government’s right to protect legitimate public welfare objectives, such as environmental protection, the investor-State dispute settlement provision allows foreign investors to seek compensation for a country’s law and policies contrary to their interests. On the other hand, investor-State dispute settlement provisions inherently have many problems. Despite the problems, protecting both foreign investors’ interests and States’ regulatory sovereignty is very important. For this reason, this dissertation ...


On What Matters In Comparative Constitutional Law: A Comment On Hirschl, Katharine G. Young 2017 Boston College Law School

On What Matters In Comparative Constitutional Law: A Comment On Hirschl, Katharine G. Young

Katharine G. Young

The field of comparative constitutional law has developed in interesting and exciting directions in recent years. This essay provides a comment on Ran Hirschl’s Comparative Matters: The Renaissance of Comparative Constitutional Law, a path-breaking example of the new methodologies that have become possible in the field. Its new boundaries, described not as comparative constitutional law, but as comparative constitutional studies, include comparative politics, political economy, and the broader social sciences. By contrast, this essay suggests that the field must remain anchored in law, in all of its complexity. This may at times suggest different answers, and indeed different questions ...
