The responsibility to protect : the promise of stopping mass atrocities in our time by Jared Genser( )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Responsibility to Protect: The Promise of Stopping Mass Atrocities in Our Time, Jared Genser and Irwin Cotler provide a comprehensive overview on how this contemporary principle of international law has developed and analyze how best to apply it to current and future humanitarian crises. The "responsibility to protect" is a doctrine unanimously adopted by the UN World Summit in 2005, which says that all states have an obligation to protect their own citizens from mass atrocities, which includes genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing. Its adoption and application has generated a passionate debate in law schools, professional organizations, media and within the U.N. system. To present a full picture of where the doctrine now stands and where it could go in the future, editors Jared Genser and Irwin Cotler have assembled a global team of authors with diverse backgrounds and differing viewpoints, including Edward Luck, the UN Secretary-General's Special Advisor on the Responsibility to Protect. Genser and Cotler balance the pro-RtoP chapters with more skeptical arguments from agency staff and scholars with long experience in addressing mass atrocities. Framed by a Preface from Desmond Tutu and Vaclav Havel and a Conclusion from Gareth Evans, these in-depth and authoritative analyses move beyond theory to demonstrate how RtoP has worked on the ground and should work if applied to other crises. The global focus of this book, as well as its detailed application of the principle in case studies make it uniquely useful to staff at international organizations and NGOs considering use of the principle in a given circumstance, to scholars providing advice to governments, and to students seeking guidance on this still-expanding subject. -- Book Description

The forgotten refugees by Mass.) David Project Center for Jewish Leadership (Boston( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Forgotten Refugees explores the history and destruction of Middle Eastern and North African Jewish communities, some of which had existed for over 2,500 years. Employing extensive testimony of survivors from Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Iran, the film recounts the stories--of joy and of suffering--that nearly a million individuals have carried with them for so long. Segments on the contributions of Middle Eastern Jews to politics, business and music, testify to the enormously rich cultures which fleeing Jews left behind. The film weaves personal stories with dramatic archival footage of rescue missions, historic images of exodus and resettlement, and analysis by contemporary scholars, to tell the story of how and why the Arab world's Jewish population declined from one million in 1945 to several thousand today"--Container

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does the impact of law always supplant politics or public policy and administration? How do legal rules operate in the legislative process? To what extent does legality influence the judicial process? These are all fundamental matters of political law.The Theory of Practice and Political Law enables the reader, with examples in hand, to hold up a legal mirror to the practice of democracy in Canada. Gregory Tardi's book makes the point that among all the distinguishing characteristics of a genuine democracy, the most fundamental is the observance of the rule of law and the seriousness of the role of law
