Political Scientist Christina Rivers: Restoring The Fundamental Right To Vote, University Marketing And Communications, Christina Rivers Nov 2019

Political Scientist Christina Rivers: Restoring The Fundamental Right To Vote, University Marketing And Communications, Christina Rivers

DePaul Download

A democracy that’s truly representative of the people depends on the people to exercise their right to vote. There are some groups of people, however, who regularly don’t vote—because they don’t know they’re eligible. Contrary to popular belief, in Illinois, a convicted felon regains eligibility to vote as soon as he or she leaves a corrections facility. Anyone awaiting trial in jail is eligible to vote, too. DePaul political scientist Christina Rivers, an expert in voting rights and a DePaul Presidential Fellow, helped pass legislation to provide voter education to soon-to-be released inmates. In this episode, she discusses these initiatives, …


Group Rights: A Defense, David Ingram Sep 2017

Group Rights: A Defense, David Ingram

David Ingram

Human rights belong to individuals in virtue of their common humanity. Yet it is an important question whether human rights entail or comport with the possession of what I call group-specific rights (sometimes referred to as collective rights), or rights that individuals possess only because they belong to a particular group. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) says they do. Article 15 asserts the right to nationality, or citizenship. Unless one believes that the only citizenship compatible with a universal human rights regime is cosmopolitan citizenship in a world state – a conception of citizenship that is not countenanced …

Contracting Stability: The Potential Use Of Private Military Contractors As A United Nations Rapid Reaction Force, Jared Genser Sep 2015

Contracting Stability: The Potential Use Of Private Military Contractors As A United Nations Rapid Reaction Force, Jared Genser

Jared Genser

In June 2015, the High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations established by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and chaired by former East Timor President José Ramos-Horta, published its comprehensive review of UN Peacekeeping Operations. The Panel observed that it takes an average of six months from when a peacekeeping mission is authorized by the United Nations Security Council to when it is deployed. It further explained that although rapid and effective deployment comes at a cost, responding more quickly saves lives and can avoid a larger, more costly response later. In asking the Secretary-General to develop options for a new …


A New Era In The Ethics Of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research, Bernard Lo, Patricia Zettler, Marcelle I. Cedars, E. Gates, Arnold R. Kriegstein, Michelle Oberman, Renee R. Pera, Richard M. Wagner, Mary T. Wuerth, Leslie E. Wolf, Keith R. Yamamoto Jun 2015

Patricia J. Zettler

Scientific progress in human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research and increased funding make it imperative to look ahead to the ethical issues generated by the expected use of hESCs for transplantation. Several issues should be addressed now, even though phase I clinical trials of hESC transplantation are still in the future. To minimize the risk of hESC transplantation, donors of materials used to derive hESC lines will need to be recontacted to update their medical history and screening. Because of privacy concerns, such recontact needs to be discussed and agreed to at the time of donation, before new hESC lines …

With CSR programs the new normal, consumers and investors increasingly factoring CSR performance into their decision-making, and companies eager to display "good corporate citizenship," strict CSR due diligence is required to proactively manage legal risks. More than ever, words must match deeds.

The Case-Law Of The European Court Of Human Rights On The Immunity Of States, Theodor Jr Schilling Jan 2014

The Case-Law Of The European Court Of Human Rights On The Immunity Of States, Theodor Jr Schilling

Theodor JR Schilling

Invoking State immunity in court proceedings is a way for a State to prevent judicial scrutiny of its responsibility for its actions. Such scrutiny, however, is the main raison d'être at least of those human rights regimes that provide for a supervision of States' compliance with human rights. It would therefore come as no surprise if human rights jurisprudence, especially the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights would prove to be a challenge to State immunity. However, it is not, or, at most, in a roundabout way.

The Duty To Make Amends To Victims Of Armed Conflict, Scott T. Paul Mar 2013

The Duty To Make Amends To Victims Of Armed Conflict, Scott T. Paul

Scott T Paul

In the past decade, calls for monetary payments by warring parties to the civilians they harm have become significantly louder and more prominent. The law of armed conflict permits parties to harm civilians, so long as the harm is not excessive to the concrete and direct military advantage they anticipate gaining through an attack. This paper examines the current state of international law regarding duties owed to victims suffering harm as a result of lawful combat operations and discusses the moral obligations owed to them by the parties who cause them harm. The paper notes that civilians who suffer incidental …


Kill-Lists And Accountability, Gregory S. Mcneal Mar 2013

Kill-Lists And Accountability, Gregory S. Mcneal

Gregory S. McNeal

This article is a comprehensive examination of the U.S. practice of targeted killings. It is based in part on field research, interviews, and previously unexamined government documents. The article fills a gap in the literature, which to date lacks sustained scholarly analysis of the accountability mechanisms associated with the targeted killing process. The article makes two major contributions: 1) it provides the first qualitative empirical accounting of the targeted killing process, beginning with the creation of kill-lists extending through the execution of targeted strikes; 2) it provides a robust analytical framework for assessing the accountability mechanisms associated with those processes. …

The Evolution Of A New International System Of Justice In The United Nations: The First Sessions Of The United Nations Appeals Tribunal, Tamara A. Shockley Mar 2012

The Evolution Of A New International System Of Justice In The United Nations: The First Sessions Of The United Nations Appeals Tribunal, Tamara A. Shockley

San Diego International Law Journal

In this overview of the new U.N. administration of justice system, a review has been undertaken of the evolution of the process from the former internal justice system to the development of the new administration of justice system. The Appeals Tribunal had a partially blank slate upon which to begin a new jurisprudence in international administrative law. In the first two sessions, the Appeals Tribunal decided upon a wide range of issues ranging from receivability, case management, disciplinary measures and pension cases. As the U.N. attempts to reform and streamline its bureaucratic structure for the 21st century, the judicial tribunals …


The Private Sectors Pivotal Role In Combating Human Trafficking, Jonathan Todres Jan 2012

The Private Sectors Pivotal Role In Combating Human Trafficking, Jonathan Todres

Faculty Publications By Year

Human trafficking is big business, with industry estimates running in the billions of dollars annually. Much of that profit accrues to traffickers, illegal profiteers, and organized crime groups. However, the private sector also reaps economic benefits, directly and indirectly, from human trafficking. Despite these economic realities, the dominant approach to combating human trafficking has been to rely almost exclusively on governments and social services organizations to do the job. Little has been asked of the private sector. Two important bills - one adopted by the State of California and the other introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives - might …

Justice In The Palestine-Israel Conflict, John B. Quigley Dec 2004

Justice In The Palestine-Israel Conflict, John B. Quigley

The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law Working Paper Series

Military-territorial conflicts are typically addressed by the international community on the basis of considerations of justice, meaning relevant standards accepted by the community of states for conduct among states and peoples. If such standards are followed, resulting agreements stand a greater chance of providing for a lasting peace. In the conflict over historic Palestine, considerations of justice have had to compete with considerations of major-power policy, from early twentieth century to the present. When negotiations re-commence, the international community should ensure that they be conducted with considerations of justice at the forefront. If that approach is taken, in particular regarding …


Tadić, The Anonymous Witness And The Sources Of International Procedural Law, Natasha A. Affolder Jan 1998

Tadić, The Anonymous Witness And The Sources Of International Procedural Law, Natasha A. Affolder

Michigan Journal of International Law

This article explores the Trial Chamber's decision to allow the use of anonymous testimony as a protective measure in the wake of the final judgment in the Tadić trial. This initial decision, granting the prosecutor's request for protective measures including the withholding of four witnesses' identities from the accused, formed a precedent upon which later rulings for protective measures relied, both throughout the Tadić case and in subsequent cases before the International Tribunal.
