Ideological Exclusion Of Foreigners In Israel And In The United States, Yuval Livnal

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

This article explores the challenge which free speech poses to Israeli immigration policy. It does so, first, by looking into the American immigration policy regarding ideological exclusions, i.e. refusing entry of a foreigner to the U.S., or the deportation of one from it, solely due to the foreigner's ideological belief As discussed in this article, the U.S. Supreme Court has been consistently reluctant to strike down laws and regulations barring entry of foreigners due to their ideological convictions, from the beginning of the previous century, throughout the Cold-War era, and up until the recent upholding of President Trump's travel ban. …

The Right Of All Children To Grow Up With A Family Under International Law: Implications For Placement In Orphanages, Residential Care, And Group Homes, Eric Rosenthal

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

This article describes the right of all children to live and grow up in a family as it has evolved thirty years after the adoption of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and since the 2006 adoption of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The article examines the implications of this right for the millions of children placed in orphanages, residential care, and group homes around the world.

The CRC favors the placement of children with a family, but it does allow for the placement of children in "suitable institutions" when …

The Great Sioux Nation V. The "Black Snake": Native American Rights And The Keystone Xl Pipeline, Cindy S. Woods Apr 2016

The Great Sioux Nation V. The "Black Snake": Native American Rights And The Keystone Xl Pipeline, Cindy S. Woods

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

The Keystone XL Pipeline has been shrouded in controversy almost since its conception. As a structure intending to cross the Canadian border into the United States, the Pipeline must receive presidential approval before construction can commence. Since 2008, TransCanada has at- tempted to obtain this approval unsuccessfully. Criticism against the Pipe- line has focused largely on the negative environmental impacts that will likely accompany its construction and utilization, and it is precisely these environmental concerns that have ultimately stymied presidential approval and made international headlines. In November 2015, the U.S. government denied TransCanada's application, effectively killing the Keystone XL pro- …

Genocide Denial And The Law: A Critical Appraisal, Paul Behrens Apr 2015

Genocide Denial And The Law: A Critical Appraisal, Paul Behrens

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

Genocide denial carries particular relevance for international law: it is the negation of international crimes, and it can prepare the ground for new crimes of this kind. But its criminalization raises concerns as well. The danger of a clash with human rights, particularly with the freedom of ex- pression, cannot be dismissed lightly. This article explores reasons for and repercussions of the criminalization of denial. It also investigates alterna- tives, including the use of truth and reconciliation, and evaluates methods that focus on direct confrontation of the deniers.


Aiding Transitional Justice In Solomon Islands, Nicole Dicker Apr 2015

Aiding Transitional Justice In Solomon Islands, Nicole Dicker

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

Overall in Solomon Islands, foreign aid donors have neither engaged effectively with transitional justice itself nor leveraged transitional justice in support of broader development outcomes. Transitional justice in Solomon Islands responds to the five-year period of violent civil conflict, the Tensions, which devastated the Pacific Island nation of Solomon Islands from 1998 to 2003. The Tensions resulted in the deaths of an estimated 200 people and left some 35,000 people displaced; many suffered abductions, illegal detentions, torture and ill-treatment, sexual violence, and property violations. To remedy past human rights abuses, several transitional justice measures have been implemented in Solomon Islands, …

The Chaplaincy Exception In International Humanitarian Law: "American-Born Cleric" Anwar Awlaki And The Global War On Terror, K. Benson Apr 2014

The Chaplaincy Exception In International Humanitarian Law: "American-Born Cleric" Anwar Awlaki And The Global War On Terror, K. Benson

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

Anwar al-Awlaki, frequently described by the media as an "Ameri- can-born cleric," was the first American citizen to be targeted for extrajudicial assassination by the Obama administration as part of the Global War on Terror (GWOT). While there have been scholarly works considering the legality of his killing under domestic law, none have examined his status as a chaplain under International Humanita- rian Law (IHL), what this designation could mean for the legality of Anwar al-Alwaki's killing, or what his killing could mean for the GWOT in general. This paper provides a necessarily brief history of Al Qaeda in the …

Sana Crítica: The System For Weighing Evidence Utilized By The Inter-American Court Of Human Rights, Álvaro Paúl Sep 2012

Sana Crítica: The System For Weighing Evidence Utilized By The Inter-American Court Of Human Rights, Álvaro Paúl

Buffalo Human Rights Law Review

The Spanish version of the case law of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights often states that this tribunal's as- sessment of evidence is ruled by saia crilica, a notion which has received several translations in the English ver- sion of the Court's case law. This concept has a clear mean- ing in the Hispanic civil law tradition. Sana critica is a system for evaluating the weight of evidence whereby a court or tribunal is not constrained by the evidentiary rules of legal proo but must judge in accordance with the rules of logic and experience, and state the grounds …
