A Hegelian Study Of Chinese People’S Pursuit Of Human Rights In Tiananmen Incident, Falun Gong And The Beijing Olympics, Amy Lai 2010 University of Cambridge

A Hegelian Study Of Chinese People’S Pursuit Of Human Rights In Tiananmen Incident, Falun Gong And The Beijing Olympics, Amy Lai

Amy Lai

Since 1991, Chinese government has issued a series of papers concerning its understanding of human rights and related problems, as well as signing two formal treaties in 1997 and 1998 that represent their effort to come to grips issues pertinent to the subject. Nevertheless, this paper does not focus on the Chinese government; considering the meager scholarship that attempts to apply Hegel to contemporary China, it instead explores Chinese people’s pursuit of human rights in a Hegelian framework. By examining (1) the 1989 Tiananmen Incident, (2) Falun Gong, and (3) 2008 Beijing Olympics, it toes a middle-ground between Western ...

Informe De Funcionamiento De Los Tribunales De Familia De Santiago / Report On The Family Courts Of Santiago City, Claudio Fuentes Maureira, Felipe Marín Verdugo, Erick Rios Leiva 2010 Universidad Diego Portales

Informe De Funcionamiento De Los Tribunales De Familia De Santiago / Report On The Family Courts Of Santiago City, Claudio Fuentes Maureira, Felipe Marín Verdugo, Erick Rios Leiva

Claudio Fuentes Maureira

In October 2005, the Chilean government launched the new family courts. The new tribunals were the second major judicial reform that Chile’s executive power supported and it was a huge failure. The system collapsed after a couple of months, and in the beginning of the 2006, the executive branch called for a group of academics and experts to elaborate some kind of response.

After years of problems the authorities arrived at identifying the main problems, and because of that in September 2008 a new bill was enacted, containing modifications to the family law system. Also, the Supreme Court of ...


Common Misconceptions: Reconciling Reconciling Legal Constructions Of Women In The Infertility And Abortion Contexts, Jody L. Madeira 2010 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Common Misconceptions: Reconciling Reconciling Legal Constructions Of Women In The Infertility And Abortion Contexts, Jody L. Madeira

Jody L Madeira

In legal scholarship, there is great disparity between constructions of women as reproductive decision-makers, in particular infertile women and women considering abortion. A woman seeking infertility treatment, even one who faces no legal obstacles, is portrayed as emotionally distraught and desperate, her ability to give informed consent potentially imperiled. Yet, the legal academy has roundly rejected similar characterizations of pregnant women considering abortion, depicting them as confident and competent decision-makers. This Article contrasts legal scholars’ characterizations of infertile women and women considering abortion, arguing that constructions of infertile women inexplicably deny women’s ability to critically assess the health risks ...

Hotness Discrimination: Appearance Discrimination As A Mirror For Reflecting On The Body Of Employment Discrimination Law, William R. Corbett 2010 Louisiana State University Law Center

Hotness Discrimination: Appearance Discrimination As A Mirror For Reflecting On The Body Of Employment Discrimination Law, William R. Corbett

William R. Corbett

Abstract for Hotness Discrimination: Appearance Discrimination as a Mirror for Reflecting on the Body of Employment Discrimination Law William R. Corbett This essay considers the topic of appearance-based employment discrimination. The essay introduces the topic by juxtaposing the “hot” story of the summer, the bank employee who claims that she was fired for “being too hot,” with Professor Deborah Rhode’s recently published book, The Beauty Bias: The Injustice of Appearance in Life and Law. In the essay, I argue that although appearance discrimination is one of the most common forms of discrimination in employment and other areas of life ...

Putting The Gene Back In The Bottle: Why California Needs Stronger Protection Of Genetic Privacy In The Wake Of Affordable Dna Testing, Farid Zakaria 2010 Santa Clara University School of Law

Putting The Gene Back In The Bottle: Why California Needs Stronger Protection Of Genetic Privacy In The Wake Of Affordable Dna Testing, Farid Zakaria

Farid Zakaria

In recent years, many “direct-to-consumer” genetic testing companies have started offering a DNA analysis service to the public. Based on the analysis of the DNA contained in saliva, these companies are able to inform the customer about his or her likelihood of having certain traits and of developing a number of diseases. Given the sensitive nature of this kind of information, this paper considers whether it is sufficiently protected under the current legal and regulatory framework. Specifically, the paper studies whether current federal, state, and common law that protects medical and private information also guarantees the privacy of genetic information ...

The Inadequate Legislative Response To E-Signatures, Jay Forder 2010 Bond University

The Inadequate Legislative Response To E-Signatures, Jay Forder

Jay Forder

This article examines the two most influential international initiatives on electronic signatures (UNCITRAL’s 1996 Model Law on Electronic Commerce and the 1999 EU Electronic Signature Directive). It considers whether the legislative approaches in Australia and the United Kingdom based on these initiatives are helpful in deciding whether lower level signature methods such as simple email messages are likely to satisfy a legal requirement for a signature. The conclusion reached is that they are unhelpful. The article goes on to consider whether legislative amendments based on UNCITRAL’s 2001 Model Law on Electronic Signatures or the 2005 UN Convention on ...

The book collects the proceedings of an international conference at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa (16-17 January 2010). Do national judges start treating the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights the same way they treat the EC law’s norms? In order to answer this question the editors (Giuseppe Martinico and Oreste Pollicino) involved scholars from the countries that are members both of the EU and the Council of Europe


¿Quién Tiene Mayor Necesidad De Pagar Impuestos?: Un Esbozo Crítico Desde La Perspectiva De Un No-Especialista, Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco 2010 Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú

¿Quién Tiene Mayor Necesidad De Pagar Impuestos?: Un Esbozo Crítico Desde La Perspectiva De Un No-Especialista, Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco

Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco

El objetivo de la presente nota es muy sencillo: evidenciar que si bien la mayoría de los ciudadanos tenemos un rechazo al pago de tributos y en particular de impuestos, somos más dependientes de ellos de lo que se suele percibir. Empero, para lograr tal constatación debemos modificar la perspectiva bajo la que se analiza una noción casi institucional como la capacidad contributiva. Todo ello, cabe resaltar, es propuesto sólo con la libertad que nuestra calidad de no-especialistas nos brinda.

Sex Trafficking Of Women For The Production Of Pornography, Donna M. Hughes Dr. 2010 University of Rhode Island

Sex Trafficking Of Women For The Production Of Pornography, Donna M. Hughes Dr.

Donna M. Hughes

Women used in the production of commercial pornography in the U.S. are often subjected to violence and coercion during filming. Often they protest and try to stop the filming or back-out before filming begins. Their protests are ignored or they are pressured by their agent or the director to continue. Their experiences of coercion and trickery often meet the criteria for sex trafficking.

De Las Superintendencias A Las Agencias Regulatorias Independientes En Chile: Aspectos Constitucionales Y De Diseño Regulatorio, Sergio Verdugo sverdugor@udd.cl, José Francisco García 2010 Universidad del Desarrollo

De Las Superintendencias A Las Agencias Regulatorias Independientes En Chile: Aspectos Constitucionales Y De Diseño Regulatorio, Sergio Verdugo Sverdugor@Udd.Cl, José Francisco García

Sergio Verdugo R.

Los autores proponen algunos lineamientos de reforma para pasar desde el actual modelo de superintendencias hacia uno de agencias regulatorias independientes. Para ello revisan la experiencia norteamericana de agencias regulatorias independientes (independent agencies), las que no sólo son antecedentes de nuestro esquema de superintendencias –aunque “mal importadas”–, sino porque dicha experiencia puede entregar algunas luces respecto de tres aspectos fundamentales hasta ahora débilmente tratados por la doctrina chilena: estatus constitucional, autonomía política y estándares de revisión judicial del accionar de estos entes administrativos. Posteriormente realizan un breve diagnóstico crítico acerca de los defectos constitucionales y de diseño de las superintendencias ...
