Enhancing The Parliament Capacity To Hold Government Accountable In Kurdistan Region, Zardasht Khalid Mohammed 2015 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Enhancing The Parliament Capacity To Hold Government Accountable In Kurdistan Region, Zardasht Khalid Mohammed

Theses and Dissertations

The current structures and draft structures grant the party leaders and the Executive undue power over the Parliament in two ways. First, by virtue of constitutional design, the Executive and the party leader’s hegemony reduce the Parliament’s capacity to act as a check on the Executive. Second, there are contextual factors correlated with political will in using available accountability mechanisms which locate beyond the design factors and they have nexus with effectiveness of the Parliament. In the other words, the contextual factor such as electoral system, party discipline, and party formations impact on the will of the parliament ...

Keynote Speaker: Professor Sompong Sucharitkul: Thailand On The Pacific Rim., Sompong Sucharitkul

Fulbright Symposium

We are gathered here today as members and alumni of Golden Gate University School of Law, peacefully settled on the shores of the Oriental side of the Pacific Rim, sometimes known as the West coast of the United States.

I have been specifically asked to tell a story, in my own words, about the thinking of Thailand some fifty years back, facing weather conditions and the unseasonal political storms within ...

“Islamic Law” In Us Courts: Judicial Jihad Or Constitutional Imperative?, Faisal Kutty 2015 Pepperdine University

“Islamic Law” In Us Courts: Judicial Jihad Or Constitutional Imperative?, Faisal Kutty

Pepperdine Law Review

At the beginning of 2014, about a dozen states introduced or re-introduced bills to ban the use of Sharī’ah law. They hope to join the seven states that have ostensibly banned it to date. Anti-Sharī’ah advocates have cited a number of cases to back their tenuous claim that Sharī’ah is stealthily sneaking in through the doctrine of comity, but a close examination of the cases they cite contradicts their claim. Comity, when one court defers to the jurisdiction of another, has been accepted and denied based on legal principles and public policy, on a case-by-case basis. There ...

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back: A Brief History Of Legal Discriminations Against Women In Iran And The Violations Of International Human Rights, Delaram Farzaneh 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back: A Brief History Of Legal Discriminations Against Women In Iran And The Violations Of International Human Rights, Delaram Farzaneh

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

In recent years Iran has primarily been under international scrutiny because of concerns over its development of a nuclear program. However, there have been other developments in Iran that also raise grave concerns among the international community. Since the 1990s, the Rights of Women have been one of the major categories of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Iran. The current direction of the Iranian government, with regard to improving women’s fundamental rights, seems to be back to the “good old days” rather than towards modernizing and humanizing strict patriarchal law. To best understand these current backward steps, it ...


Arbitration Of Islamic Financial Disputes, Dr. Aida Maita 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

Arbitration Of Islamic Financial Disputes, Dr. Aida Maita

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

Using arbitration as a means of resolving Islamic finance disputes is gaining popularity in the Middle East, as well as in other Muslim States in South-East Asia and Africa. This is evident in the number of studies and articles that have been presented on this subject by Islamic finance experts and the legal community at large. Major arbitration institutions in the region are also positioning themselves to cater to this industry’s growing demand for dispute resolutions because many of these disputes tend to be of high profile and value. While the industry historically has preferred litigation over adjudication, and ...

Climate Change And Nigeria’S Sustainable Development Of Vision 20-2020, Dr. S. Gozie Ogbodo, Dr. Ngozi F. Stewart

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

Nigeria’s current development vision is to become one of the fastest developing economies in the world by the year 2020. Unfortunately, Nigeria flares an estimated 2.5 million cubic feet of gas each day which amounts to almost 40 percent of the total gas consumed in Africa. Thus, the country is one of the leading emitters of carbon dioxide, a veritable source of climate change. This paper will argue that the negative consequences of climate change are inimical to Nigeria’s sustainable development. Further, the paper will fault the sincerity of the vision and assert that the leadership of ...
