Increasingly, environmental rights are being recognized as enforceable human rights, both substantive and procedural. Environmental law can no longer be viewed merely as a matter for policy choices in legislation. This new casebook shows how international and national court cases in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas have begun to interpret treaties, national constitutions, and human rights legislation to protect the environment through the recognition of rights. For the first time, these rich developments are brought together in a book suitable as a primary text for classes and seminars.

The New Kings of Crude

China, India, and the Global Struggle for Oil in Sudan and South Sudan

In the past decade, the need for oil in Asia's new industrial powers, China and India, has grown dramatically. The New Kings of Crude takes the reader from the dusty streets of an African capital to Asia's glistening corporate towers to provide a first look at how the world's rising economies established new international oil empires in Sudan, amid one of Africa's longest-running and deadliest civil wars. For over a decade, Sudan fuelled the international rise of Chinese and Indian national oil companies. But the political turmoil surrounding the historic division of Africa's largest country, with the birth of South Sudan, challenged Asia's oil giants to chart a new course. Luke Patey weaves together the stories of hardened oilmen, powerful politicians, rebel fighters, and human rights activists to show how the lure of oil brought China and India into Sudan--only later to ensnare both in the messy politics of a divided country. His book also introduces the reader to the Chinese and Indian oilmen and politicians who were willing to become entangled in an African civil war in the pursuit of the world's most coveted resource. It offers a portrait of the challenges China and India are increasingly facing as emerging powers in the world.

Im Zentrum des Neuen Jahrbuchs Dritte Welt steht die Überprüfung und Einschätzung alter und neuer Mechanismen der Entwicklungsfinanzierung in der Dritten Welt. Dabei soll es nicht nur um die klassische Entwicklungshilfe, sondern vor allem auch um die Ro11e privater Direktinvestitionen, Steuern auf internationale Transaktionen (inkl. der sogenannten Tobin-Steuer) und kurzfristige Portfolioinvestitionen gehen. Als Probleme werden dabei die Stabilisierung dieser Transfers, die Verschuldung von Entwicklungsländern und neue Mechanismen zur Verbindung von Schuldenerlass und Armutsreduktion in Entwicklungsländern diskutiert. Zudem befasst sich der Band auch besonders mit Möglichkeiten zur Steigerung der lokalen Mittel (Steuern, private Ersparnisse) und zur Entwicklung der lokalen Kapitalmärkte.
