La Proteccion De Los Inmigrantes Irregulares En Los Estados Unidos Y La Libertad De Circulacion En Una 'Union Americana', Kristina M. Campbell Jan 2018

La Proteccion De Los Inmigrantes Irregulares En Los Estados Unidos Y La Libertad De Circulacion En Una 'Union Americana', Kristina M. Campbell

Journal Articles

Este artículo es una continuación y ampliación de una propuesta que formulé en 2009, y se plantea si —y cómo— los Estados Unidos pueden apartarse de su actual sistema de regulación de la inmigración punitivo, cuasi-penal y de exigencia dura de su cumplimiento. ¿Es posible para los Estados Unidos y sus vecinos acercarse a un sistema de protección de los refugiados y otros migrantes irregulares del resto de las Américas, modelado sobre el concepto de «libertad de circulación» de la Unión Europea? Si es así, ¿a qué debería parecerse dicho sistema? Permitiendo a todos los ciudadanos de una «Unión Americana» …

Of Temples And Territory: The Icj's Preah Vihear Decision And Implications For Regional Dispute Resolution, Sally Tyler

University of the District of Columbia Law Review

Occupying a mere 4.6 kilometers on the frontier betweenThailand and Cambodia, the temple of Preah Vihear maintains secondary importance in the pantheon of ancient Khmer architecture to the more celebrated complex at Angkor. Even so, it has been the source of tremendous conflict throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. This conflict claimed the lives of both civilians and soldiers in 2011, and forced the dislocation of tens of thousands of villagers. Encompassing questions of cultural heritage and border demarcation, Preah Vihear has grown as a symbol of identity and self-direction within both Thailand and Cambodia. The 1962 International Court of …

Untold Stories: Gender-Related Persecution And Asylum In South Africa, Lindsay M. Harris

In 2006, 20.2% of asylum seekers were women; a significant increase from previous years.3 Given South Africa’s prominence in the region, its handling of female asylees and gender-related persecution claims influences the adjudication of these claims regionally and even worldwide.4


Pride, Prejudice, And Japan's Unified State, Suzanne M. Sable Dec 2008

Pride, Prejudice, And Japan's Unified State, Suzanne M. Sable

University of the District of Columbia Law Review

Japan is undoubtedly one of the foremost economic powers in the world and is internationally recognized as a democratic leader among modern nations. The economy's rapid growth in the mid-twentieth century has been attributed to its booming technical industries, including its electronic and automobile industries. However, Japan is unique in that it has retained traditions associated with typically less advanced nations-namely, a regressive human rights agenda. Although cultural, ethnic, and social minorities continue to exist on Japanese soil today, Japan's social policy of Nihonjinron allows the majority of the population to disregard such minorities and perpetuate the government's vision of …
