Carolina Academic Press, 2005 - Law - 252 pages
0 Reviews
Legal issues that have traditionally been treated as domestic are in-creasingly governed by transnational law and numerous obscure tri-bunals. This book acquaints students of law and politics with the largely unrecognized authority of transnational legal systems and the ways boundaries of national sovereignty are being eroded in the 21st century. The editors have skillfully organized their collection around issues dealing with both human rights and issues of trade and used a comparative approach to analyze the many court decisions, treaties, and legal agreements that affect national sovereignty. Included subject areas are: Courts and Regional Trade Agreements, Dispute Resolution under NAFTA, and Universal Criminal Jurisdiction.
