The Chemical Weapons Convention requires, among other things, that the signatories to the convention--which includes the United States--destroy by April 29, 2007, or as soon possible thereafter, any chemical warfare materiel that has been recovered from sites where it has been buried once discovered. For several years the United States and several other countries have been developing and using technologies to dispose of this non-stockpile materiel. To determine whether international efforts have resulted in technologies that would benefit the U.S. program, the U.S.
In 2006 the Royal Society, in cooperation with the International Council for Science, the
InterAcademy Panel on International Issues (now the IAP—the Global Network of
Science Academies) and the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, organized a workshop
that surveyed trends in science and technology (S&T). The objective was to provide an
independent contribution from the international scientific community to the 6th
Conference of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC) that was held in
December of that year. ...
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights proclaim that everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, including freedom to manifest their religion or belief in worship, teaching, practice and observance. Even today, in our democratic societies too, this fundamental right is still sometimes restricted and meets with hostility and intolerance.
The legal questions involved in studying genocide draw on three areas of
law: human rights law, international law and criminal law. These are all
subjects that I have both taught and practised. This alone ought to be
sufficient to explain my interest in the subject. But there is more. Of the
three great genocides in the twentieth century, those of the Armenians,
the Jews and Gypsies, and the Tutsi, my life has been touched by two of
Despite attempts to secure harrnonisation of accounting practice, significant variations in
accounting rules and practice continue to arise in European countries, variations which give
rise to compliance costs for multinational companies.
Firstly, this paper considers the relevance of international accounting harmonisation for
European business. It then proceeds to examine accounting regulation in three countries:
Spain, Sweden and Austria, highlighting the key regulatory issues of the 'true and fair' view
requirement and the link between taxation and accounting.
A material weakness is a condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the internal control
components does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that misstatements in amounts that would be
material in relation to the basic financial statements being audited may occur and not be detected within a
timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions.
This book examines the international law of high seas
®sheries in the light of the negotiations of the Third United
Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, the state and
international practice that followed, and its in¯uence on the
1995 Straddling Stocks Agreement.
The acts of lawlessness committed on September 11, 2001 were swiftly
followed by a ‘war on terror’. This book sets out the essential features
of the international legal framework against which the 9/11 attacks and
the lawfulness of measures taken in response thereto fall to be assessed.
It addresses, in an accessible manner, the relevant law in relation to:
‘terrorism’, questions as to ‘responsibility’ for it, the criminal law frame-
work, lawfulconstraints on the use of force, the humanitarian law that
governs in armed conﬂict, and international human rights law.
The scale and horror of recent terror attacks and the panic which ensued
throughout the world has forced policy-makers and international lawyers
to re-examine international legal tools available to enforce norms
against terrorism. The magnitude of the attacks, the modalities of the
operations, the profiles of the terrorists and the transnational structure of
some terrorist organisations all cast doubt on the adequacy of the existing
political and legal framework to fight terrorism.
The Secretariats of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered
Species of Wild Fauna and Flora and the Convention on Biological
Diversity signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 23rd
March 1996. The articles of neither treaty require this but it was a
decision of the Parties to both conventions to move in this direction.’
The memorandum provides for institutional cooperation between
the Secretariats, exchange of information, coordination of work programmes
and joint conservation action....
The problem of ‘Grand’ Corruption (I prefer the term ‘indigenous spoliation’ or
‘patrimonicide’ because both capture the exceptional gravity and magnitude of the
plunder of national resources that takes place), the misuse of public power by high-
ranking state officials for private gain, has finally been ‘outed.’ The veil that once
shrouded this subject from public view, particularly the probing view of
multilateral institutions and national legislatures, is now lifted. It has taken over ten
years to get here.
