Israeli social scientists examine each stage of the criminal justice process, hoping to clear the system from suspicion of inequality. They found however that Arabs do not receive equal treatment. They trace the problem not to deliberate bias by justice personnel, but to the pervading prejudices and

Mixed Legal Systems, East and West

Advancing legal scholarship in the area of mixed legal systems, as well as comparative law more generally, this book expands the comparative study of the world’s legal families to those of jurisdictions containing not only mixtures of common and civil law, but also to those mixing Islamic and/or traditional legal systems with those derived from common and/or civil law traditions. With contributions from leading experts in their fields, the book takes us far beyond the usual focus of comparative law with analysis of a broad range of countries, including relatively neglected and under-researched areas. The discussion is situated within the broader context of the ongoing development and evolution of mixed legal systems against the continuing tides of globalization on the one hand, and on the other hand the emergence of Islamic governments in some parts of the Middle East, the calls for a legal status for Islamic law in some European countries, and the increasing focus on traditional and customary norms of governance in post-colonial contexts. This book will be an invaluable source for students and researchers working in the areas of comparative law, legal pluralism, the evolution of mixed legal systems, and the impact of colonialism on contemporary legal systems. It will also be an important resource for policy-makers and analysts.

Foundations of Civil and Political Rights in Israel and the Occupied Territories

Author: Yvonne Schmidt

Publisher: GRIN Verlag

ISBN: 3638944506

Category: Human rights

Page: 636

This work intends to show how civil and political rights in Israel and the Occupied Territories are regulated, which normative standards and spiritual sources nourish them, and how written and unwritten principles are applied and interpreted by the Supreme Court of Israel in pursuance of its self-imposed duty to safeguard the individual's rights and freedoms. The legal system of Israel reflects unresolved conflicts, ambiguities of the state and difficulties connected with the process of nation-building as well as dilemmas concerning the ethnic and cultural identity of the population.

Law, Politics and Violence in Israel/Palestine

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319341537

Category: Political Science

Page: 188

This book investigates the Israeli engagement with international law in relation to the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) between 1967 and 2009. Grounded in a field-based study of the military International Law Department, it examines the dynamic position and impact that international law has had in the OPT. By analysing the Israeli 2008/9 offensive in Gaza as an example of contemporary warfare, the author argues that law and military agenda have become intertwined in ‘lawfare’, a condition sanctioning new forms of law and violence. The military legal system is central to the Israeli management of the OPT, yet despite the great interest in the legal aspects of the Israeli occupation, scholarly accounts of this institution are scarce. This discussion also has wider international relevance, particularly in the backdrop of the contemporary prominence of international law in Western militaries’ operations. This book will appeal to researchers, practitioners and students interested in international relations, political theory, human rights, Middle Eastern politics, and legal studies.

The Israeli Supreme Court and the Human Rights Revolution

Courts as Agenda Setters

Author: Assaf Meydani

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139501674

Category: Law

Page: N.A

View: 7935

This book explains the reciprocal relations between the Supreme Court and the Israeli political system. It is based on a unique approach that contends that the non-governability of the political system and an alternative political culture are two key formal and informal variables affecting the behavior of several political players within the Israeli arena. The analysis illustrates the usefulness of such a model for analyzing long-term socio-political processes and explaining the actions of the players. Until this model changes significantly, the decisions of the High Court of Justice express the values of the state and enable Israel to remain a nation that upholds human rights. The Court's decisions determine the normative educational direction and reflect Israel's democratic character with regard to the values of human rights.

Nach einem Vorlauf von mehr als drei Jahrzehnten des Suchens und Sammelns im Frankfurter Institut für Sexualwissenschaft legen in diesem Band 60 angesehene Forscherinnen und Forscher aus aller Welt 200 faszinierende Artikel über Leben und Werk bedeutender Sexualforscherinnen und Sexualforscher vor. Hierzu gehören prominente Fachvertreter, die Institute, Zeitschriften oder Fachgesellschaften gründeten, weichenstellende Kongresse abhielten, Standardwerke verfassten, Theorien entwickelten oder provozierende Hypothesen aufstellten. Aber auch wenig bekannte, zu ihrer Zeit und in ihrem Bereich jedoch nachhaltig wirkende Persönlichkeiten sowie Außenseiter, denen die Sexualwissenschaft wichtige Impulse verdankt, sind im vorliegenden Lexikon zu finden – ebenso bekannte Philosophen und Soziologen wie etwa Michel Foucault, Norbert Elias oder Niklas Luhmann. Ein besonderes Anliegen ist den Herausgebern die Erschließung des Werkes jener jüdischen Sexualwissenschaftler, die der Naziterror aus Deutschland vertrieben hat. Es gibt kein vergleichbares Werk weltweit.
