Standard Setting In Human Rights: Critique And Prognosis, Makau Wa Mutua Aug 2007

Standard Setting In Human Rights: Critique And Prognosis, Makau Wa Mutua

Journal Articles

This article interrogates the processes and politics of standard setting in human rights. It traces the history of the human rights project and critically explores how the norms of the human rights movement have been created. This article looks at how those norms are made, who makes them, and why. It focuses attention on the deficits of the international order, and how that order - which is defined by multiple asymmetries - determines the norms and the purposes they serve.

Non-Governmental Organizations, Prevention, And Intervention In Internal Conflicts: Though The Lens Of Darfur, J. J. Welling Jan 2007

Non-Governmental Organizations, Prevention, And Intervention In Internal Conflicts: Though The Lens Of Darfur, J. J. Welling

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

This Note argues that cases like the humanitarian crisis and the conflict in Darfur, Sudan, present an intrastate collective action problem that has not been satisfactorily addressed by a traditional multilateral approach. Instead, the Darfur crisis demonstrates the need for an expanded view of modern international law in the face of intrastate conflict that includes systematic intervention procedures and preventive aid, as well as a multifaceted approach that recognizes and integrates NGOs and NGO alliances. This Note asserts that the Sudan crisis has posed a collective action problem requiring not only multilateral state collective action, but also multifaceted, coordinated action …

Washington's Way: Dispersed Enforcement Of Growth Management Controls And The Crucial Role Of Ngos, Henry W. Mcgee, Jr.

Seattle University Law Review

Though there is a valuable and extensive collection of literature on prawl efforts in both states, this Article examines Washington's Growth Management Act and the critical role that NGOs play in supporting the GMA. Specifically, this Article looks at Washington's GMA from three perspectives-legal, historical, and empirical and proposes that NGOs are vital to the GMA's enforcement. Because NGOs are so critical to the enforcement of the GMA, the question of how the courts interpret the scope of authority of growth management hearing boards when deciding growth management cases becomes very important. A decrease in the authority of the hearing …
