Law, Language And Terror: Policemen Or Soldiers? The Dangers Of Misunderstanding The Threat To America (Commentary On 9-11), Kenneth Anderson Sep 2001

Law, Language And Terror: Policemen Or Soldiers? The Dangers Of Misunderstanding The Threat To America (Commentary On 9-11), Kenneth Anderson

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

This article was offered in 2001 as the Times Literary Supplement's main commentary the week following 9-11. The essay argues that 9-11 required war as a response, and challenges views expressed in the days following 9-11 by commentators such as Anne-Marie Slaughter and Michael Ignatieff that the proper response by the United States should be criminal law in nature - either international criminal law, through international tribunals or procedures, or domestic criminal law of the kind pursued in the first 1993 World Trade Center bombing. It further argues against the functional pacifism of many Christian theologians who, while approving of …


That Someone Guilty Be Punished: The Impact Of The Icty In Bosnia, Diane Orentlicher Jul 2001

That Someone Guilty Be Punished: The Impact Of The Icty In Bosnia, Diane Orentlicher

Reports

In That Someone Guilty Be Punished, Diane F. Orentlicher, professor of law at American University, looks at the effects and effectiveness of the ICTY, including lessons to improve future efforts to provide justice for survivors of atrocious crimes. Perhaps most importantly, Orentlicher examines the impact of the tribunal through the words and experiences of those in whose name it was established: the victims and survivors. Their expectations, hopes, and disappointments are chronicled alongside the tribunal’s achievements and limitations. Based on hundreds of hours of interviews—and featuring the voices and perceptions of dozens of Bosnian interlocutors—That Someone Guilty Be Punished provides …

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

The United States is currently experiencing one of the largest waves of immigration in its history. Contrary to common assumptions, more than half of new immigrants are women.

Domestic Violence And Us Asylum Law: Eliminating The 'Cultural Hook' For Claims Involving Gender-Related Persecution, Anita Sinha Jan 2001

Domestic Violence And Us Asylum Law: Eliminating The 'Cultural Hook' For Claims Involving Gender-Related Persecution, Anita Sinha

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

In this Note, Anita Sinha examines the treatment of asylum claims involving gender-related persecution. Analyzing the three most recent decisions published by the Board of Immigration Appeals, Sinha illustrates that these cases have turned on whether the gender-related violence can be linked to practices attributable to non-Western,'foreign" cultures. Sinha argues that cases involving gender-related persecution can be given full consideration of asylum law only when their adjudication is based on an understanding of the political and institutional character of violence against women, rather than on" cultural" culpability. In making this argument, Sinha examines recent amendments to the regulations governing asylum …


Symposium: Antitrust At The Millennium (Part Ii), Jonathan Baker Jan 2001

Symposium: Antitrust At The Millennium (Part Ii), Jonathan Baker

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

This issue features Part II of the Antitrust Law Journal's Symposium on Antitrust at the Millennium. As with Part I, which appeared in Volume 68, Issue 1 (2000), most Symposium authors use a decision or other significant text from antitrust's past as a springboard to discuss some aspect of antitrust's future. This group of Symposium essays is being published in the wake of a U.S. election that has shifted control of the Executive Branch of the federal government from Democrats to Republicans. Yet the broad themes and challenges pursed by Symposium authors are likely to remain central to antitrust regardless …
