Indivisible Identities: Culture Clashes, Confused Constructs And Reality Checks, Berta E. Hernández-Truyol Oct 1997

Indivisible Identities: Culture Clashes, Confused Constructs And Reality Checks, Berta E. Hernández-Truyol

UF Law Faculty Publications

This essay, an expansion of remarks delivered at the LatCrit I Conference -- the first conference ever convened to discuss and explore critical legal thought from a Latina/o perspective -- develops a basis for articulating a LatCrit theory. As the introductory section, "LatCrit: The Voice for Latina/o Narratives" sets out, Latinas/os are a diverse community, whose identity components -- race, sex, ethnicity, language, and sexuality to name a few of the pertinent ones -- are indivisible yet diverse and varied. Such diversity, to date, has not allowed for a cohesive Latina/o theoretical model to be articulated. Rather, it has been …

Dehumanising The Human Rights, Maurya Vijay Chandra Jun 1997

Dehumanising The Human Rights, Maurya Vijay Chandra

Maurya Vijay Chandra

Two submissive souls appearing docile to the core--one 14 year old Manoj with his wrist in one of the hand cuffs while another wrist locked up with that of Jawahir, a 30 year old lean and thin man. These unusual mates stepped down from an Auto with a constable. I say mates because they were sharing the load of the iron chain wrapped around in layers. We could not believe ourselves that all this could happen in the heart of the capital, at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital, Delhi.

The United Nations Convention Of The Rights Of The Child: A Feminist Landmark, Cynthia Price Cohen Apr 1997

The United Nations Convention Of The Rights Of The Child: A Feminist Landmark, Cynthia Price Cohen

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child,1 adopted by the General Assembly on November 20, 1989, is a ground-breaking human rights treaty for many reasons. It had the largest number of signatories on the day that it was opened for signature.2 It went into force more quickly than any other human rights treaty;3 it reached near-universal ratification by mid-1996;4 and it protects the entire range of human rights: civilpolitical, economic-social-cultural, and humanitarian.5 In addition, the Convention's monitoring mechanism gives unique powers to its monitoring body, the Committee on the Rights of the Child.6 Unfortunately, these achievements have …

Relativism, Reflective Equilibrium, And Justice, Justin Schwartz Jan 1997

Relativism, Reflective Equilibrium, And Justice, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

THIS PAPER IS THE CO-WINNER OF THE FRED BERGER PRIZE IN PHILOSOPHY OF LAW FOR THE 1999 AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE BEST PUBLISHED PAPER IN THE PREVIOUS TWO YEARS.

The conflict between liberal legal theory and critical legal studies (CLS) is often framed as a matter of whether there is a theory of justice that the law should embody which all rational people could or must accept. In a divided society, the CLS critique of this view is overwhelming: there is no such justice that can command universal assent. But the liberal critique of CLS, that it degenerates into …

Judicial Review As A Tool For The Safeguard Of Human Rights: Prospects And Problems Of The U.S. Model In Malawi, Janet Laura Banda Jan 1997

Judicial Review As A Tool For The Safeguard Of Human Rights: Prospects And Problems Of The U.S. Model In Malawi, Janet Laura Banda

LLM Theses and Essays

Judicial review is a judicial action that involves the review of an inferior legislative or executive act for conformity with a higher legal norm, with the possibility that the inferior norm may be invalidated or suspended if necessary. Although judicial review has been explicitly provided for in some written post-independence African constitutions, such review has not developed into a significant principle of African juridical democracy. This lack of development can be attributed to the emergence of dictatorships in the post-colonial era. However, Malawi’s weak judiciary system was remedied by the 1994 Constitution which gave the Malawian judiciary a central position, …


Permissible Accommodation Of Religion And The Alternative Burden, Ei Ichiro Takahata Jan 1997

Permissible Accommodation Of Religion And The Alternative Burden, Ei Ichiro Takahata

LLM Theses and Essays

In this thesis, the author discusses the extent to which the government can afford to give accommodation within the limits of the Establishment Clause. In Chapter II, the author reviews the theory of the permissible accommodation referred to in the Supreme Court of the United States. In Chapter III, the author examines scholarly debates on the accommodation. Then, the author discusses German and Japanese law of the accommodation in Chapter IV.

The author concludes that the government has …

International Human Rights Standards On Sexual Violence Against Women As They Apply To Pornography, Claudia Giunta Jan 1997

International Human Rights Standards On Sexual Violence Against Women As They Apply To Pornography, Claudia Giunta

LLM Theses and Essays

The United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women was held in Beijing in September 1995, and represented an important step towards the achievement of equality for women. At the Conference, the progress made towards equality was acknowledged, but it was also acknowledged that many goals have not been achieved yet, and that cultural changes of fundamental importance remain to be made. Indeed, in many countries the cultural approach to violence and discrimination against women is quite fatalistic; they believe violence against women cannot be solved by laws. However, this approach overlooks the role played by societies in tolerating practices of …
