Law in the Pursuit of Development critically explores the relationships between contemporary principles and practice in law and development. Including papers by internationally renowned, as well as emerging, scholars and practitioners, the book is organized around the three liberal principles which underlie current efforts to direct law towards the pursuit of development. First, that the private sector has an important role to play in promoting the public interest; second, that widespread participation and accountability are essential to any large scale enterprise; and third, that the rule of law is a fundamental building block of development. This insightful and provocative collection, in which contributors critique both the principles and efforts to implement them in practice, will be of considerable interest to students, academics and practitioners with an interest in the fields of law and development, international economic law, and law and globalization.

This book addresses critical questions about how legal development works in practice. Can law be employed to shape behavior as a form of social engineering, or must social behavior change first, relegating legal change to follow as ratification or reinforcement? And what is legal development's source of legitimacy if not modernization? But by the same token, whose version of modernization will predominate absent a Western monopoly on change? There are now legal development alternatives, especially from Asia, so we need a better way to ask the right questions of different approaches primarily in (non-Western) Asia, Africa, the Islamic world, plus South America. Incoming waves of change like the 'Arab spring' lie on the horizon. Meanwhile, debates are sharpening about law's role in economic development versus democracy and governance under the rubric of the rule of law. More than a general survey of law and modernization theory and practice, this work is a timely reference for practitioners of institutional reform, and a thought-provoking interdisciplinary collection of essays in an area of renewed practical and scholarly interest. The contributors are a distinguished international group of scholars and practitioners of law, development, social sciences, and religion with extensive experience in the developing world.

"His bond with the city mirrored his parents' relationship to their towns in the Old World, except that Manhatten offered him a future they could only imagine. Merely by working hard within a few square miles of New York, the young Weinfeld could become a great lawyer and ultimately a judge of national repute. Weinfeld's personal growth and socioeconomic mobility illustrates how the children of Catholic and Jewish immigrants were assimilated into mainstream American life during the course of the twentieth century. His unique approach to jurisprudence offers a model for the equal legal protection of all Americans."--BOOK JACKET.

" Principles of environmental policy " or " principles of environmental law " appear to be steadily gaining ground. They are being increasingly incorporated in all kinds of soft law instruments and international treaties. Since the European Act, they have been recognised by the EC Treaty, and they are receiving attention in the European environmental action programmes and in the recitals of European environmental directives and regulations. They are appearing more and more often in national legislation too. It should therefore not come as a surprise that practising lawyers are asking themselves increasingly what kind of role these principles have to play in legal practice. What is their exact impact ? Are they merely policy lines with no legally binding effect ? Or are they legal principles and, if so, what are their ramifications ? In order to examine all this more closely, the Environmental Law Centre and the Institute of Maritime Law of the University of Ghent, in association with the Centre d'étude du droit de l'environnement of the Facultés Universitaires Saint-Louis, organised a workshop in Ghent on 1 October 1999 in the context of Environmental Law Network International. The papers presented there have been revised by their authors for the purposes of this book and also take into account the discussions that were held. The Environmental Law Network International (Elni) is a network of about 350 individuals an organisations from all over the world who share an interest in environmental law. Elni vides an international forum for the exchange of news, views, ideas and in so doing promotes international communication and cooperation of those working in this field. The Environmental Law Centre is the research unit that co-ordinates the research work of the environmental law teaching staff of the Law Faculty of the University of Ghent. The Centre depends from the Public Law en Tax Department and works in close collaboration with the Civil Law Department and the International Public Law Department. From the outset (1982), the Centre was closely involved in policy orientated scientific research. In this respect we can highlight the work of the Interuniversity Commission for the revision of Environmental Law in the Flemish region (1989-1995). The Centre provided both the chairmanship and the secretariat of that Commission. The Maritime Institute (MI) of the University of Ghent is a research institute within the Department of International Public Law (Faculty of Law). The MI has four objectives. At first the MI organizes a multidisciplinary post-graduate mastercourse in Maritime Sciences, one of the five specialized post-graduate courses of the Faculty of Law. Either on its own or in collaboration with other institutions the MI organizes conferences, colloquia and workshops. As an independent research unit the MI is advising and carrying out studies for governemental, non-governemental or private companies on maritime and environmental related topics. At last the MI is involved in various training projects in co-operation with other organizations or universities. The Environmental Law Research Centre (Centre d'études du droit de l'environnement CEDRE) is based in Brussels at the Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis since 1990. CEDRE's research team is composed of a group of researchers whose work focuses on the study and development of environmental law, at domestic and international levels. The Center's activities include academic research, teaching (LLM level), organization of colloquiums, seminaires and legal advice for public authorities. It has a large expertise in the fields of environmental law principles, administrative and public environmental laws and of the impact of primary and secondary Community law on national environmental policies, as appears from his numerous publications.

In Johannesburg at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002, over one hundred and eighty states assumed a collective responsibility to advance and strengthen the interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars of sustainable development economic development, social development, an environmental protection at the local, national, regional and global levels. This remarkable collection of papers, sponsored by the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL), demonstrates that sustainable development serves as a unifying concept with the potential to facilitate much-needed respect for international law and timely implementation of diverse and overlapping international commitments. It builds on the substance of a rich and complex debate at the intersections among economic, social, and environmental law, bringing together a broad cross-section of viewpoints and voices. The authors review recent developments in WTO discussions and negotiations, and in the recent decisions of the WTO Appellate Body, from a sustainable development law perspective. They also survey relevant new developments in trade and economic agreements at regional, inter-regional and bi-lateral levels. The various essays focus on sustainable development aspects of key issues in recent trade negotiations such as the Singapore Issues (investment, competition, trade facilitation, and government procurement), intellectual property rights, investment arbitration and the linkage between the WTO and multilateral environmental accords, (MEAand¿s).. Among the specific topics covered are the following: Emerging areas of law and policy in trade and sustainable development, The underlying development agendas in global trade law negotiations, Cooperation and potential negotiation on international competition law, Sustainable development aspects of intellectual property rights negotiations, Overlaps between multilateral environmental accords (MEAand¿s) and the WTO, Recent developments in WTO dispute settlement procedures and proceedings, Human rights and environmental opportunities from trade liberalisation and increased market acces, Human rights and environment impact assessment techniques used to analyse trade agreements, Recent developments in bi-lateral and regional trade agreements. Trade, investment, and competition law practitioners and negotiators in developed and developing countries will find this book of great value, as will development and environment law professionals with responsibility for trade and WTO law related matters.
