Modern warfare armed groups, private militaries, humanitarian organizations, and the law by Benjamin Perrin( )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To bridge the widening gap between the theory and practice of the law, Modern Warfare brings together both scholars and practitioners who offer unique, and often divergent, perspectives on four key challenges to the law's legitimacy: how to ensure compliance among non-state armed groups; the proliferation of private military and security companies and their use by humanitarian organizations; tensions between the idea of humanitarian space and counterinsurgency doctrines; and the phenomenon of urban violence. The contributors do not simply consider settled legal standards - they widen the scope to include first principles, related bodies of law, humanitarian policy, and the latest studies on the prevention and mitigation of violence."--Pub. desc
Invisible chains : Canada's underground world of human trafficking by Benjamin Perrin( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Just outside Toronto, a 14-year-old Canadian girl was auctioned on the internet for men to purchase by the hour. A young woman was taken by slave traders from an African war zone to Edmonton to earn greater profits by exploiting her in prostitution. A gang called Wolfpack recruited teenagers in Quebec and sold them for sex to high-profile men in the community. The global problem of human trafficking is only beginning to be recognized in Canada, even though it has been hidden in plain sight. In Invisible Chains, Benjamin Perrin, an award-winning law professor and policy expert, exposes cases of human trafficking, recording in-depth interviews with people on the front lines--police officers, social workers, and the victims themselves--and bringing to light government records released under access-to-information laws."--Publisher's website

Trafficking in persons & transit countries a Canada-U.S. case study in global perspective by Benjamin Perrin( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
International trafficking in persons is often facilitated by the movement of victims through one or more transit countries in order to reach a destination country where the victim will ultimately be subjected to sexual exploitation or forced labour. Despite this recognized pattern, there has been a relative lack of attention paid to the response of transit countries in addressing their role in this transnational criminal activity and systematic human rights abuse

Migrant smuggling Canada's response to a global criminal enterprise : with an assessment of the Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada's Immigration System Act (Bill C-4) by Benjamin Perrin( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Migrant smuggling is a dangerous, sometimes deadly, criminal activity which cannot be rationalized, justified, or excused. From both a supply and demand side, failing to respond effectively to migrant smuggling and deter it will risk emboldening those who engage in this illicit enterprise, which generates proceeds for organized crime and criminal networks, funds terrorism and facilitates clandestine terrorist travel; endangers the lives and safety of smuggled migrants, undermines border security, with consequences for the Canada/U.S. border, and undermines the integrity and fairness of Canada's immigration system
Oldest profession or oldest oppression? : Addressing prostitution after the Supreme Court of Canada decision in Canada v. Bedford by Benjamin Perrin( )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The future of Canada's laws related to prostitution has become an urgent public policy issue in the wake of the Supreme Court of Canada decision in Canada (Attorney General) v. Bedford. Three prostitution-related offences in the Criminal Code were found to infringe the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and are to be struck down, effective within one year. The Court's decision of December 20, 2013 has spurred a national debate on the issue as Parliament has this limited timeline to adopt any new legislative approach, or else Canada will face the de facto legalization of adult prostitution

An emerging international criminal law tradition : gaps in applicable law and transnational common laws by Benjamin Perrin( )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This thesis critically examines the origins and development of international criminal lave to identify the defining features of this emerging legal tradition. It critically evaluates the experimental approach taken in Article 21 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which attempts to codify an untested normative super-structure to guide this legal tradition." --
Challenges facing the EU network of competition authorities : insights from a comparative criminal law perspective by Benjamin Perrin( )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Council regulation 1/2003 created the European Union network of competition authorities at the same time that the Union expanded to 25 Member States. The complex interaction of national criminal laws in this process has been comparatively under-explored, and presents serious challenges to the successful investigation and enforcement of EU competition law. This article identifies seven major obstacles to co-operation within the EU competition network and proposes preliminary solutions, regarding: the co-existence of custodial and non-custodial sanctions; different levels of protection of the rights of the defence; use of information for "other purposes"; differences in national investigative powers; treatment of illegally obtained information; leniency programmes; and forums in which to challenge exchanges of information within the EU network. With a better understanding of these challenges, the promise of effective competition policy in Europe can be realised, safeguarding the benefits of the common market for every Union citizen."--Editor
