Regime Shifts And Panarchies In Regional Scale Social-Ecological Water Systems, Barbara Cosens Jan 2017

Regime Shifts And Panarchies In Regional Scale Social-Ecological Water Systems, Barbara Cosens

Articles

In this article we summarize histories of nonlinear, complex interactions among societal, legal, and ecosystem dynamics in six North American water basins, as they respond to changing climate. These case studies were chosen to explore the conditions for emergence of adaptive governance in heavily regulated and developed social-ecological systems nested within a hierarchical governmental system. We summarize resilience assessments conducted in each system to provide a synthesis and reference by the other articles in this special feature. We also present a general framework used to evaluate the interactions between society and ecosystem regimes and the governance regimes chosen to mediate ...

Overlapping International Disaster Law Approaches With International Environmental Law Regimes To Address Latent Ecological Disaster, Anastasia Telesetsky Jan 2016

Overlapping International Disaster Law Approaches With International Environmental Law Regimes To Address Latent Ecological Disaster, Anastasia Telesetsky

Articles

International Disaster Law (IDL) and International Environmental Law (JEL) have developed as two separate subsets of public international law. IDL has until recently focused largely on developing effective disaster relief laws, while JEL has focused on addressing long-term transboundary environmental crises. This Article argues that the connection between the two legal regimes has been undervalued. Using the ecological case study of excess nutrients (e.g., nitrogen and phosphorus), this Article posits that almost forty years of international legal efforts have failed to reverse the current trend of increasing coastal "dead zones" due to the existence of a form of "bystander ...

Beyond Voluntary Corporate Social Responsibility: Corporate Human Rights Obligations To Prevent Disasters And To Provide Temporary Emergency Relief, Anastasia Telesetsky Jan 2015

Beyond Voluntary Corporate Social Responsibility: Corporate Human Rights Obligations To Prevent Disasters And To Provide Temporary Emergency Relief, Anastasia Telesetsky

Articles

Much of the focus of the emerging field of International Disaster Law is on state responsibility. Yet the source of some disasters is the failure of corporations to address known risks created by a company or located on company property. This Article queries whether there are obligations for corporations to act under international human rights law to prevent disasters where corporations have control over known hazards such as tailings dams or chemical dumps. This Article concludes that corporations have a legal duty to act in order to support and protect human rights whenever there is corporate knowledge of hazards that ...

After Whaling In The Antarctic: Amending Article Viii To Fix A Broken Treaty Regime, Anastasia Telesetsky Jan 2015

After Whaling In The Antarctic: Amending Article Viii To Fix A Broken Treaty Regime, Anastasia Telesetsky

Articles

Since the global decline in commercial whaling, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) has been at the centre of a long-standing debate between pro-whaling industry states and whale preservation states that threatens the collapse of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW) as a treaty regime. This article describes the ongoing treaty regime disagreement that led to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Whaling in the Antarctic case and suggests that the ICJ's decision highlights further weaknesses in the existing ICRW treaty regime. The fissures in the treaty regime have become even more apparent with the IWC Scientific ...

Too Rough A Justice: The Ethiopia-Eritrea Claims Commission And Civil Liability For Claims For Rape Under International Law, Ryan S. Lincoln Jan 2012

Too Rough A Justice: The Ethiopia-Eritrea Claims Commission And Civil Liability For Claims For Rape Under International Law, Ryan S. Lincoln

Articles

The developments in international law prohibiting rape during armed conflict have grown at a rapid pace in recent decades. Whereas rape had long been considered an inevitable by-product of armed conflict, evolution in international humanitarian law (IHL) has relegated this conception mostly to the past. The work of international criminal tribunals has been at the forefront of this change, developing the specific elements of the international crime of rape, and helping to change the perception of rape in international law violations of IHL, however also give rise to civil liability Despite the advances with respect to rape made in the ...


Rule Of Law For Whom? Strengthening Rule Of Law As A Solution To Sexual Violence In The Democratic Republic Of Congo, Ryan S. Lincoln Jan 2011

Rule Of Law For Whom? Strengthening Rule Of Law As A Solution To Sexual Violence In The Democratic Republic Of Congo, Ryan S. Lincoln

Articles

This article suggests that programs designed to strengthen the rule of law in general are unlikely to be effective against the widespread problem of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I argue that while weak rule of law perpetuates sexual violence, only rule of law programs designed specifically with respect to the needs, risks, and cultural norms pertaining to Congolese women can help curb this problem. The article begins with a brief history of conflict in the Great Lakes region of Africa to provide context for a discussion of the scope of sexual violence in the eastern ...
