State legitimacy and failure in international law by Mario Silva( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Failing states share characteristics of inadequate structural competency, including, inter alia, the inability to advance human welfare and security. Economic inequalities and corruption are present, as well as a loss of legitimacy and reduced social cohesion. Failure of rule of law is manifested in areas of judicial adjudication, security, reduced territorial control and systemic political instability. The international community often confronts these challenges in a manner that actually complicates issues further through lack of consensus among state actors. Consequently, a new and emerging concept of sovereignty requires review in terms of the postmodern state. Through scholarly consideration, State Legitimacy and Failure in International Law evaluates gaps in structural competency that precipitate state failure and examines the resulting consequences for the world community.--

In Part II.

Privacy versus security in the age of global terror by Mario Silva( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mario Silva's latest book Privacy and Security in the Age of Global Terror tackles one of the central legal and political predicaments that defines our times. Cyber security has become a worldwide issue, and where it has been found ineffective, a sense of vulnerability has developed in society. The internet-age has challenged the implications and execution of both personal and national protection and security, and stirred issues about the concept of privacy. The privacy of an individual in any country is a prime duty of both governmental and non-governmental agencies. Due to rapid transformations in technology, it has become a difficult task for governments to give assurances of privacy to their individual citizens. Technological advancement has seen a proliferation of hackers-with the help of hooks and spooks-who steal consumer data and misuse it for profit. At the same time, the threat of terrorism has instigated the use of new surveillance technologies to track and collect information on a massive scale, potentially threatening individuals and raising questions about fundamental right of privacy. The balance between security and privacy has seemed like an almost impossible task in the age of global terrorism. Recently, Glenn Greenwald's book on whistleblower Edward Snowden and the National Security Agency thrust the issue of state surveillance back into the public consciousness. Unrestricted mass surveillance by the US government has largely eliminated the right to privacy in a world that virtually relies upon electronic communication. The current level of surveillance occurring in contemporary society is inconsistent with human rights. Privacy and Security in the Age of Global Terror Protection offers an insightful and timely look at how privacy has become one of the critical issues of discussion in this technological world. As internet democracy is one of the largest emerging agendas, Dr. Silva looks at how reformed practices are required to ensure to ensure protection against the surveillance of individuals."--
