Abstract

An introduction to Canadian legal history featuring new approaches to legal scholarship. Essential reading for all those interested in Canadian legal methodologies, especially new and beginning scholars. Canada’s Legal Pasts presents new essays on a range of topics and episodes in Canadian legal history, provides an introduction to legal methodologies, shows researchers new to the field how to locate and use a variety of sources, and includes a combined bibliography arranged to demonstrate best practices in gathering and listing primary sources. It is an essential welcome for scholars who wish to learn about Canada’s legal pasts—and why we study them. Telling new stories—about a fishing vessel that became the subject of an extraordinarily long diplomatic dispute, young Northwest Mounted Police constables subject to an odd mixture of police discipline and criminal procedure, and more—this book presents the vibrant evolution of Canada’s legal tradition. Explorations of primary sources, including provincial archival records that suggest how Quebec courts have been used in interfamilial conflict, newspaper records that disclose the details of bigamy cases, and penitentiary records that reveal the details of the lives and legal entanglements of Canada’s most marginalized people, show the many different ways of researching and understanding legal history. This is Canadian legal history as you’ve never seen it before. Canada’s Legal Pasts dives into new topics in Canada’s fascinating history and presents practical approaches to legal scholarship, bringing together established and emerging scholars in collection essential for researchers at all levels.

Abstract

An examination of, and guide to, the challenges and responsibilities of doing research with displaced peoples while respecting their complex needs. In 2018, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees documented a record high 71.4 million displaced people around the world. As states struggle with the costs of providing protection to so many people and popular conceptions of refugees have become increasingly politicized and sensationalized, researchers have come together to form regional and global networks dedicated to working with displaced people to learn how to respond to their needs ethically, compassionately, and for the best interests of the global community. Mobilizing Global Knowledge brings together academics and practitioners to reflect on a global collaborative refugee research network. Together, the members of this network have had a wide-ranging impact on research and policy, working to bridge silos, sectors, and regions. They have addressed power and politics in refugee research, engaged across tensions between the Global North and Global South, and worked deeply with questions of practice, methodology, and ethics in refugee research. Bridging scholarship on network building for knowledge production and scholarship on research with and about refugees, Mobilizing Global Knowledge brings together a vibrant collection of topics and perspectives. It addresses ethical methods in research practice, the possibilities of social media for data collection and information dissemination, environmental displacement, transitional justice, and more. This is essential reading for anyone interested in how to create and share knowledge to the benefit of the millions of people around the world who have been forced to flee their homes.

Abstract

Modern medical technologies, especially the pre-implantation and prenatal diagnosis, have given the possibility of preventive dealing with the risks of physical or mental disabilities. On the other side there is the call for support and “inclusion” of people with disabilities. These opposing trends are critically analyzed and discussed in depth from a legally, genetic, as well as from a medical, social and ethical point of view.

Abstract

"Seit vielen Jahren wird eine intensive Debatte über die Auswirkungen exzessiver Mediennutzung geführt. Prominente Themen sind die Auswirkungen gewalthaltiger Medien auf gewalttätiges Verhalten oder die Auswirkungen exzessiver Mediennutzung auf schulische Leistungen. Ferner wird die Frage nach einer „Mediensucht“ diskutiert. Oft verharrt diese Debatte jedoch, selbst in der Wissenschaft, an den beiden Polen „Medien wirken“ und „Medien wirken nicht“, die beide in ihrer Schwarz-Weiß-Malerei das Bild verfehlen. Für die Wirkbereiche Schulleistung, Gewaltverhalten, Fettleibigkeit, Computerspielabhängigkeit sowie für die Prävention einer exzessiven Mediennutzung, wird zunächst ein umfassender Überblick über den internationalen Forschungsstand gegeben. Anschließend werden eigene Ergebnisse der breit angelegten 4jährigen Längsschnittstudie Berliner Längsschnitt Medien präsentiert. Im Ergebnis zeigt sich ein differenzierteres, aber dennoch eindeutiges Bild: Medien sind in allen genannten Bereichen ein wichtiger und bedeutsamer Risikofaktor, aber beileibe nicht der einzige."

Abstract

Die Studie befasst sich mit der rechtlichen Gestaltung einer kindorientierten Familienpolitik in vier europäischen Ländern mit unterschiedlichen sozialstaatlichen Arrangements. Ziel ist es, das Spektrum an Maßnahmen und Interventionen zur Gewährleistung des Rechtes von Kindern auf materielle Ressourcen und kindgerechte Betreuung systematisch zu erfassen und die Komplexität der „Leistungen für Kinder“ im Spannungsfeld öffentlicher und privater Verantwortung aufzuzeigen: Wie wird das Recht des Kindes auf Unterhalt und Betreuung geschützt, wie und weshalb soll der Staat Eltern in ihren Elternfunktionen unterstützen? Wie wirken sich Grundprinzipien wie die Gleichstellung aller Kinder unabhängig von ihrem Geburtsstatus auf sozialrechtliche Leistungen aus? Die vier Länderstudien analysieren Unterschiede und zunehmende Gemeinsamkeiten hinsichtlich der Begründung einer öffentlichen Verantwortung für die junge Generation. Die vergleichende Auswertung stützt sich auch auf gemeinsame europäische und internationale normative Vorgaben.

Abstract

The „as efficient competitor“-standard has gained great practical significance when assessing exclusionary conduct – not least because of the „more economic approach“. The thesis investigates the standard’s historical and economic backgrounds, analyses its history of application and undertakes a critical assessment based on the aforementioned factors. The thesis follows a comparative law approach and is highly interdisciplinary. Thereby it majorly contributes to the controversial topic of how industrial organisation’s findings can be made viable for the application of law in light of versatile shortcomings. It adds to a clarification of the demanding prohibition rules on exclusionary conduct by providing important insights into the application of the „as efficient competitor“ test. By doing so, it aims at attracting the interest of academic scholars as well as professionals.

Abstract

Endanger law ('Gefährdungsrecht') is a criminal law which is seeking security – and thereafter fighting ‘risks’ and ‘dangers’ – as its main objective and which is acting on the basis of risk patterns developed by this law itself. Individuals who fit these characteristics are being fought against as endangerers, that means, as high risky figures – and not as offenders. In this work it is presented this figure which has been constructed by the criminal policies and system in Germany during recent years, and has been co-constructed by the Constitutional Court in at least two cases: in the case of the acoustic home surveillance and in the case of the subsequent incapacitation order. Here is (critically) explained the internal logic and rationality which is leading this endanger law.

Abstract

Le thème de la (dis)continuité en Droit ne peut laisser indifférent nul juriste, nul historien ou théoricien du Droit. Les communications rassemblées dans cet ouvrage en témoignent par leur diversité disciplinaire. Pour aborder un tel objet d'étude d'une redoutable ampleur, l'axe temporel et l'axe spatial ont été retenus. Sur l'axe du temps, la continuité se donne comme l'expression de la permanence des principes et des institutions résistant aux ruptures ; elle évoque une intangibilité rêvée. Face aux évolutions exigeant des abandons et des réformes, elle devient la résistance de l'existant, cédant difficilement par des réformes apparentes. Et quand l'abandon de l'ancien ne peut être évité, elle se transforme en transition qui ménage un pont au-dessus du fossé qui sépare (ou veut séparer) désormais le passé et le présent. Sur l'axe de l'espace, la continuité se manifeste dans les liaisons entre éléments d'un même ensemble processuel, normatif ou institutionnel. Elle préside encore à l'établissement de liens entre sphères d'activités ou d'intérêts connexes et entre territoires contigus. Ainsi, la continuité est au cœur des impératifs de sécurité et de cohérence juridiques, de pacification et de cohésion sociales.

Abstract

The evolution of activism against the expansion of copyright in the digital domain, with case studies of resistance including eBook and iTunes hacks.The movement against restrictive digital copyright protection arose largely in response to the excesses of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998. In The Digital Rights Movement, Hector Postigo shows that what began as an assertion of consumer rights to digital content has become something broader: a movement concerned not just with consumers and gadgets but with cultural ownership. Increasingly stringent laws and technological measures are more than incoveniences; they lock up access to our “cultural commons.”Postigo describes the legislative history of the DMCA and how policy “blind spots” produced a law at odds with existing and emerging consumer practices. Yet the DMCA established a political and legal rationale brought to bear on digital media, the Internet, and other new technologies. Drawing on social movement theory and science and technology studies, Postigo presents case studies of resistance to increased control over digital media, describing a host of tactics that range from hacking to lobbying.Postigo discusses the movement's new, user-centered conception of “fair use” that seeks to legitimize noncommercial personal and creative uses such as copying legitimately purchased content and remixing music and video tracks. He introduces the concept of technological resistance—when hackers and users design and deploy technologies that allows access to digital content despite technological protection mechanisms—as the flip side to the technological enforcement represented by digital copy protection and a crucial tactic for the movement.
