The book gives a comprehensive overview of the American & German constitutional regimes of affirmative action for women. It describes international & European Community rules which encourage & limit affirmative action taken by States. Comparison of the legal orders reveals a paradox. Affirmative action for women in America has existed longer & is more widespread & more institutionalized, although the spirit of the American Constitution conflicts with such policies more than the German Constitution. The American Constitution contains no clause explicitly guaranteeing gender equality. It establishes a principle of containment, that the government is prohibited from certain action, & does not acknowledge positive governmental duties. Individual freedom is of primary importance, & the socially dependent nature of the individual is barely recognized. In contrast, the German Constitution contains a gender-specific equality clause, Article 3(2) (passed in 1949 & amended in 1994), which is interpreted by some to allow quotas as a form of preferential treatment. German constitutional law also includes the principle that the state has affirmative duties, the principle of the social state ( Sozialstaat ), & the merit principle for hiring & promotion within the civil service. The discrepancy between policy & constitutional principle suggests that the formulation of policy is driven less by constitutional principles than by exterior elements such as the political & social situation, which apparently have led the United States to implement affirmative action despite a relatively weak constitutional basis & Germany to refrain from implementing affirmative action despite relatively strong constitutional support. The book also inquires into the utility of comparative law, its scope & its limits. It concludes that one should not overestimate the utility of comparative law as a tool of social engineering that prepares the adaptation of foreign policies to solve the apparently similar problems of different countries. The strength of comparative law lies rather in its critical potential. Thus, legal comparison mirrors the limits of law as a vehicle of social reform limits particularly obvious in the context of overcoming discrimination against women.

For fast, authoritative answers to questions of liability for international air transportation, this newly updated, enormously useful and timesaving legal resource is without peer. In one volume it provides an incomparable wealth of case law and commentary, conveniently arranged as article-by-article annotation to the Warsaw Convention. This new edition brings the case law up to 1999, and includes the all-important new judicial developments derived to date from such recent air mishaps as KAL 007, Lockerbie, TWA 800, and Swissair 111. The cases summarized and analyzed under each article come from scores of jurisdictions worldwide, with decisions that in many instances have built on case law from a number of different countries. The author's treatment encompasses the subsequent agreements and protocols that have amended the original 1929 Convention, and cites those significant minority viewpoints, both juridical and scholarly, that serve to clarify some of the more difficult issues that arise in this complex field of international law. The text used is the English (US) translation of the Convention. Appendices include the authentic original French text of the Warsaw Convention and the English (UK) translation, as well as the three official Spanish texts (Spain, Argentina, and Mexico); the official French, English, and Spanish texts of the Hague Protocol and the Guadalajara Convention; texts of the Montreal Agreement, the Guatemala Protocol, and the four Montreal Protocols; pertinent excerpts from the United States Code of Federal Regulations and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) rules; and up-to-date listings of parties signatory to the Warsaw instruments. A table of cases, with supplemental case citations, is also included.

Aviation Law Cause of Action Exclusivity in the Warsaw and Montreal Conventions

Authors: Cluxton, David
Categories: Law
Type: BOOK - Published: 2022-02-15 - Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing

This incisive book tackles a controversy that has plagued the Warsaw Convention 1929 and the Montreal Convention 1999 for decades: whether the conventions provide an independent cause of action upon which a plaintiff can rely directly when pleading their action, and, if so, whether that cause of action provides the exclusive remedy. This book resolves this controversy by presenting a new conceptual framework for understanding aviation law cause of action in the conventions.

Oil tankers are not solely to blame for pollution at sea. Non-tankers have released numerous spills. The International Convention on Civil Liability for Bunker Oil Pollution Damage has been adopted, but has not yet come into force. This timely and comprehensive book studies compulsory insurance, its main purpose of ensuring compensation and its interrelations with other features such as the rule of strict liability, the limitation of liability of that convention.
Basic Documents on International Trade Law

Type: BOOK - Published: 2012-04-27 - Publisher: Kluwer Law International B.V.

Anyone involved in trade law knows the time-consuming nature of obtaining primary source material and consulting each of the main trade laws. Now in its fourth edition, Basic Documents in International Trade Law solves this problem by assembling, in a single, easy-to-use resource, a very comprehensive collection of the most important and frequently used documents on the law of international trade. In addition to its obvious practical value, this work reveals much about the process of harmonization in international trade law and the operation of the key international trade bodies. This makes the book a helpful reference for international business lawyers, researchers, legislators and government officials in the field. Since the successful publication of the previous editions of the book, the appearance of new conventions and model laws has considerably enriched the law of international trade, and the present edition contains a wealth of new material. The book has been substantially revised and several new instruments have been included. Among the most significantly important improvements to this new edition are new chapters added to different parts of the book, a redesigned and thoroughly revised Part 6 reflecting the expansion of intellectual property rights under the framework of treaties administered by World International Property Organization, and bibliographies and other research resources updated and enlarged to include an extraordinarily rich collection of books and articles in many trading languages besides English, including, for the first time, major Chinese works in the international trade law field. As the late Prof. Clive M. Schmitthoff commented on the first edition, the book ‘is not only of practical usefulness but has also considerable jurisprudential value’, and ‘reveals the methodology of the harmonization process in the area of international trade law’. The International Business Lawyer first commented in 1987 that the book ‘can only be described as a “vade mecum” for every international business lawyer’, an assessment that now seems more merited than ever.

Civil Liability for Damage Caused by Global Navigation Satellite System
Language: en
Pages: 270
Authors: Dejian Kong
Categories: Law
Type: BOOK - Published: 2019-05-24 - Publisher: Kluwer Law International B.V.

It has come to pass that national security, economic growth, and transportation safety – not to mention such infrastructure as banking and electricity – are severely dependent on the positioning information, navigation capabilities, and time dissemination provided by Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). However, GNSS is not risk-free. The more humanity depends on GNSS, the more risks it has to face. It is irresponsible to wait for an accident to happen merely to justify the need for an appropriate GNSS civil liability regime. This hugely important book examines the structure of such a regime in unprecedented depth and proposes a uniform governance structure composed of an institutional framework and a legal system for GNSS, with safety-of-life signals at its core. Exploring whether the current international law (including air law and space law conventions) is adequate to deal with the issue of civil liability in the context of GNSS, the author confronts and responds to such crucial issues as the following: ensuring that parties suffering damage caused by GNSS get fair, prompt, and adequate compensation; balancing the interests of the GNSS industry in order for it to maintain its sustainable development; identifying legal gaps arising in the GNSS context and how we should move forward; determining which parts of the value chain of GNSS may qualify as origins of damage; and construing GNSS civil liability mainly from contractual, product, and general tort liability perspectives. The author assesses various solutions for GNSS civil liability based on their feasibility, including an institutional defence against the doctrine of sovereign immunity and recommendations on how several international organisations can work together in this endeavour. He examines scholarships, travaux préparatoires, conference documents, and treaties, as well as national legislation. A hypothetical case where damage is caused by GNSS is elaborated, illustrating each legal relationship and causal link. In its committed urging of GNSS signal providers to improve the stability of the satellite navigation systems and its insightful recommendations on how to promote public safety, this book offers a roadmap indicating a truly viable international regime of GNSS civil liability. Relevant international organisations and States, as well as practitioners, are sure to respond positively to its unique and important analysis.
Uniformity and Fragmentation of the 1999 Montreal Convention on International Air Carrier Liability

Type: BOOK - Published: 2022-05-12 - Publisher: Kluwer Law International B.V.

The 1999 Montreal Convention is the most recent in-force treaty to regulate several important aspects of international air carrier liability in a uniform manner. This book examines in detail to what extent the 1999 Montreal Convention’s aim of uniformity has been achieved. To this end, it scrutinizes the exact scope of this aim and analyses the factors that may have prevented it from being fully achieved. It studies the wording of the treaty and its predecessors, their travaux préparatoires, the judicial decisions of numerous civil and common law jurisdictions, as well as various other interpretative tools. Among many others, themes addressed in this study include: exclusivity; the autonomy of terms used; translation issues; accident; bodily injury; damage; delay; consumer rights; the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties; hermeneutics; the Warsaw System; regional air law (including EU Regulation 261/2004); and algorithms. The study also suggests ways to reduce the fragmentation of the 1999 Montreal Convention with a series of directly applicable recommendations, and an analysis of what Artificial Intelligence could mean for the future. This book, which is intended to be practical, is aimed at all lawyers well-versed in aviation law as well as aviation enthusiasts. They will find it a useful tool for interpreting the 1999 Montreal Convention in a manner consistent with its ambition, as well as recent case law from all continents on hot topics.
