States As International Law-Breakers: Discrimination Against Immigrants And Welfare Reform, Elizabeth Landry Oct 1996

States As International Law-Breakers: Discrimination Against Immigrants And Welfare Reform, Elizabeth Landry

Washington Law Review

As part of the current "devolution revolution," policy makers at the state and federal levels are designing proposals that would permit states to discriminate on the basis of immigration status in determining eligibility for public education, medical care, social services, and cash assistance. This Comment asserts that such proposals violate international human rights norms, by which both federal and state governments are bound. Mbreover, it maintains that legislators must consider international law when crafting proposals that would allow discrimination on the basis of alienage. If they fail to do so, courts are obliged to intervene and ensure that treaty provisions …

The Canadian Charter And Public International Law: Redefining The State's Power To Deport Aliens, Daniela Bassan Jul 1996

The Canadian Charter And Public International Law: Redefining The State's Power To Deport Aliens, Daniela Bassan

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

This article considers the relationship between international and domestic law in deportation proceedings. The argument is made that, generally, Canadian law should be interpreted consistently with Canada's obligations at international law, as reflected in conventions and custom. More specifically, the article proposes that Canada's obligation at international law to protect the family and the child be recognized in Canadian law as one of the principles of fundamental justice under section 7 of the Charter. The protection of the family is engaged by the deportation of domiciled aliens because, by definition, these deportees have been in Canada for a long period …

Protecting Equality And Human Dignity: Allowing Same-Sex Marriage, Stacey R. Jessiman Mar 1996

Protecting Equality And Human Dignity: Allowing Same-Sex Marriage, Stacey R. Jessiman

Stacey R Jessiman

This March 1996 paper argues that the common law prohibition of same sex marriage violates rights protected by both the Charter and Human Rights legislation and is inappropriate in Canadian pluralistic modern society. First, this paper argues that the common law prohibition of same-sex marriage discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation and violates parties’ constitutional right to equality protected by s.15(1) of the Charter. Second, it argues that the common law rule violates s.7 of the Charter in that it encroaches on the right to liberty of same-sex partners by insulting their dignity as human beings. Third, it argues …

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Transboundary environmental problems do not distinguish between political boundaries. Global warming is expected to cause thermal expansion of water and melt glaciers. Both are predicted to lead to a rise in sea level. We must enlarge our paradigms to encompass a global reality and reliance upon global participation.

Human Rights And Community Development Through Low-Income Women's Leadership: The Voice Of An African-American Organizer, Claudine Michel Jan 1996

Human Rights And Community Development Through Low-Income Women's Leadership: The Voice Of An African-American Organizer, Claudine Michel

William Monroe Trotter Institute Publications

In this essay, I argue that grassroots organizing appears as one of the most viable option worldwide until women are better protected through legislation and public policy. I also posit that it is important to learn from divergent leadership philosophies, from the different values, roles and styles that women adopt in various parts of the world in the course of their day-to-day activities and in their efforts to organize, to support current community programs, and to train future community leaders. This essay relates the experiences of a grassroots organizer and presents what I believe to be a successful model of …
