Letter from the Scientific Director

Vincenzo FerrariOver the past six months, the traditional activities of our Institute went on smoothly and, I dare to say, successfully.

The master course ended in March and our students are now busy with their final theses, which cover a variety of topics and deal with them under a variety of viewpoints and methods. Considering the projects approved, one can be confident that the quality of their final works will satisfy our expectations fully, keeping pace with our traditions.

Fifteen workshops have taken place from April to late July. They offered a terrific chance to go in-depth into a number of subjects of high scientific importance, which also occupy centre stage in social and political debates. A glance to the list of such events, in the following pages, confirms it clearly. We expect that their materials will come to enrich our publications, either as books or as contributions to the Oñati Socio-Legal Series. [+info]

Temporary Labour Migration in the Global Era: The Regulatory Challenges. Eds. Joanna Howe & Rosemary Owens

Human Rights Encounter Legal Pluralism. Normative and Empirical Approaches

Eds. Giselle Corradi, Eva Brems, Mark Goodale

This collection of essays interrogates how human rights law and practice acquire meaning in relation to legal pluralism, ie, the co-existence of more than one regulatory order in a same social field. As a social phenomenon, legal pluralism exists in all societies. As a legal construction, it is characteristic of particular regions, such as post-colonial contexts. [+info]

Life Imprisonment and Human Rights. Dirk van Zyl Smit, Catherine Appleton

Trust in International Police and Justice Cooperation

Eds: Saskia Hufnagel, Carole McCartney

The use of extra-territorial intelligence is growing among security, border, and public agencies. Internationally, rapidly evolving efforts to tackle transnational crime entail the exchange of intelligence across jurisdictions and state borders as well as the 'linking' of law enforcement operations. This book provides a number of different perspectives from across Europe, Australasia and Canada to examine recent cooperation experiences and the challenges faced in practice. [+info]
