Importers As Regulators: Product Safety In A Globalized World, Andrew T. Guzman 2009 University of California, Berkeley

Importers As Regulators: Product Safety In A Globalized World, Andrew T. Guzman

Andrew T Guzman

In the wake of scandals involving lead toys, toxic toothpaste, poisonous pet food, and other dangerous products in recent years, policymakers have proposed a variety of strategies that purport to address safety concerns. Though many of these proposals would have salutary effects on consumer product safety, they do not provide, either individually or collectively, a full solution to the problem. This chapter offers a different proposal for addressing the challenges that global production poses for state-centered regulation of import safety. We argue that regulators should structure administrative penalties to make private importers regulate the foreign manufacturing processes from which they ...


International Soft Law, Andrew T. Guzman, Timothy L. Meyer 2009 University of California, Berkeley

International Soft Law, Andrew T. Guzman, Timothy L. Meyer

Andrew T Guzman

Although the concept of soft law has existed for years, scholars have not reached consensus on why states use soft law or even whether “soft law” is a coherent analytic category. In part, this confusion reflects a deep diversity in both the types of international agreements and the strategic situations that produce them. In this paper, we advance four complementary explanations for why states use soft law that describe a much broader range state behavior than has been previously explained.

First, and least significantly, states may use soft law to solve straightforward coordination games in which the existence of a ...

China And The Doha Development Agenda, Chin Leng Lim, Jiangyu Wang 2009 University of Hong Kong

China And The Doha Development Agenda, Chin Leng Lim, Jiangyu Wang

Chin Leng Lim

In contrast to early predictions during its accession, China has not sought to play a leadership role in the Doha Round negotiations, or to rewrite WTO rules in a systemic manner. However, China’s role in the negotiations came into prominence during the “mini-ministerial” held in Geneva in July 2008. Now included in the G-7, China came under fire from the United States and the European Union for failing to demonstrate greater leadership. This article seeks to explain the nature of that criticism, and argues that over-reliance on the question of “Chinese leadership” as an explanatory concept could aggravate broader ...

In The Right to Remain Silent, Professors Charles Weisselberg and Stephanos Bibas debate the state of the right to remain silent after the Supreme Court’s decision in Berghuis v.

Converging Feminist And Queer Legal Theories: Family Feuds And Family Ties, Elaine Craig 2009 Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law

Converging Feminist And Queer Legal Theories: Family Feuds And Family Ties, Elaine Craig

Elaine Craig

The notion that queer theory and feminism are inevitably in tension with one another has been well developed both by queer and feminist theorists. Queer theorists have critiqued feminist theories for being anti-sex, overly moralistic, essentialist, and statist. Feminist theorists have rejected queer theory as being uncritically pro-sex and dangerously protective of the private sphere. Unfortunately these reductionist accounts of what constitutes a plethora of diverse, eclectic and overlapping theoretical approaches to issues of sex, gender, and sexuality, often fail to account for the circumstances where these methodological approaches converge on legal projects aimed at advancing the complex justice interests ...
