The Complex Combatant: Constructions Of Victimhood And Perpetrator-Hood In Gulu District, Northern Uganda, Kyra Fox 2016 SIT Study Abroad

The Complex Combatant: Constructions Of Victimhood And Perpetrator-Hood In Gulu District, Northern Uganda, Kyra Fox

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

In the wake of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) conflict in Northern Uganda, both the local and international community struggle to define the “victims” and “perpetrators” of a conflict that transformed ordinary civilians into combatants. Made up primarily of child soldiers, the LRA forcefully abducted and conscripted children across Northern Uganda to fight in a guerilla war against the Ugandan government. LRA members were forced to murder their own families and terrorize their home villages in an attempt to disorient and desensitize them to lives of violence. Some became willing, even eager fighters; others struggled daily to live with ...

Refining Statutory Interpretation: How Natural Gas Export Regulations Violate U.S. International Trade Obligations, Amanda L. Tharpe 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Refining Statutory Interpretation: How Natural Gas Export Regulations Violate U.S. International Trade Obligations, Amanda L. Tharpe

Catholic University Law Review

As a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the United States is required to abide by nondiscriminatory trade policies when exporting products to other WTO members. Current U.S. policy regulating natural gas exports impose burdensome and lengthy licensing procedures on those requesting approval of a permit to export natural gas to countries with which the U.S. does not have a free trade agreement. A similar commodity, crude oil, is regulated by different regulations that allow for U.S. oil producers to freely export crude oil overseas. This Comment analyzes the differences in federal laws and regulations governing ...

Lochner Disembedded: The Anxieties Of Law In A Global Context, Peer Zumbansen 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School York University, Toronto

Lochner Disembedded: The Anxieties Of Law In A Global Context, Peer Zumbansen

Peer Zumbansen

This paper explores, in an inevitably cursory manner, some of the main challenges facing a legal theory of transnational governance today. In part building on and responding to William Twining's identification of key problems of law in a global context (2009; 2012), the following paper adopts a two-fold approach. One element is to suggest a conceptual architecture, which captures law in its transformational state through a focus on actors, norms, and processes. Second, the paper proposes case studies as a central methodological device to explore the nature, scope, and function of governance-both legal and nonlegal-in a global context. Through ...


Uncertain Costs, Unclear Benefits: China’S Social Insurance System And Foreign Workers, Eric Chu 2016 Boston College Law School

Uncertain Costs, Unclear Benefits: China’S Social Insurance System And Foreign Workers, Eric Chu

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

China’s fairly recent implementation of a social security insurance scheme that includes foreign workers has generated unintended uncertainties and inconsistencies both for foreign companies in China and for Chinese companies working outside China, without generating clear benefits for foreign workers. This Note provides an overview of the new scheme, which requires, for the first time, all foreign workers and their employers to pay into the social security insurance system. Weaknesses in this new scheme include inconsistent implementation, scattered timelines, and incomplete information on coverage. In the face of these and other shortcomings, China should focus on the benefits of ...


Climate Justice, Daniel A. Farber 2016 University of California, Berkeley

Climate Justice, Daniel A. Farber

Daniel A Farber

Eric Posner and David Weisbach take the threat of climate change seriously. Their book Climate Change Justice offers policy prescriptions that deserve serious attention. While the authors adopt the framework of conventional welfare economics, they show a willingness to engage with noneconomic perspectives, which softens their conclusions. Although they are right to see a risk that overly aggressive ethical claims could derail international agreement on restricting greenhouse gases, their analysis makes climate justice too marginal to climate policy. The developed world does have a special responsibility for the current climate problem, and we should be willing both to agree to ...


Forum Selling And Domain-Name Disputes, Daniel M. Klerman 2016 USC Law School

Forum Selling And Domain-Name Disputes, Daniel M. Klerman

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

The system for resolving domain-name disputes is unique in that it gives the complainant, a trademark owner who claims that a domain name violates its mark, the unilateral ability to choose the arbitration provider. As a result, providers, whether motivated by profit or prestige, have incentives to favor the complainant. Empirical analysis confirms that complainants choose providers who are more likely to decide cases for the trademark owner, rather than based on speed. The domain name-dispute resolution system should be modified to allow both complainant trademark owner and respondent domain-name registrant to strike an equal number of arbitration providers. This ...
