Introducing readers to the study of law, media and popular culture, this text, using three original case studies, re-examines the assumptions underpinning existing research and suggests alternatives. Arguing that the study of law, media and popular culture should be embedded in the sociology of everyday life, the author focuses on four specific topics, in which there is scope for further development. These are the facts that: the current literature in this field predominantly focuses on crime, neglecting the way the media portrays less spectacular, more run-of-the-mill legal topics fiction, primarily, has captured scholars' attention, with remarkably less being paid to representations of law, other than crime, in factual media textual analysis continues to be the preferred method in the study of law and the media the literature is dominated by a fear of corrosive media effects, while the potential of the media and popular culture to improve public legal knowledge, facilitate access to justice and promote legal change remains largely undocumented. Exploring the often uneasy relationship between law and popular culture from specific socio-legal perspectives, including systems theory, semiotics of law and legal pluralism, this book is an essential read for those studying and researching in this area.

"Mediating Human Rights addresses how the relationship between security and civil liberties has been shaped by the media. Human rights have never been as ubiquitous as in the aftermath of the events of 9/11, when the security agenda rose to prominence and created significant tensions between anti-terrorism legislation and rights. This book seeks to examine how such tensions are negotiated, discussed and represented in the media, focusing specifically on the growing importance of the new social media in the promotion of human rights values. Taking as its main focus the state of human rights in liberal regimes which have been accused of using security concerns as a pretext for eroding liberties and rights in their own backyards, Mediating Human Rights captures important shifts in a human rights narrative that has become increasingly focused on the changing balance between liberty and security. Rights are entwined with popular notions of freedom, equality and the rule of law; but they also act as a lightning rod for occasional, but influential, public concern with the weakness or softness of the state. This is reflected in media representations which, Lieve Gies shows, are more complex and more nuanced than is often assumed. Deploying a variety of qualitative research methods - media analysis, ethnographic field research, cultural theory, case commentaries - Mediating Human Rights offers an insightful account of the media politics of terrorism and human rights.

The demand for recognition, responsibility, and reparations is regularly invoked in the wake of colonialism, genocide, and mass violence: there can be no victims without recognition, no perpetrators without responsibility, and no justice without reparations. Or so it seems from law’s limited repertoire for assembling the archive after ‘the disaster’. Archival and memorial practices are central to contexts where transitional justice, addressing historical wrongs, or reparations are at stake. The archive serves as a repository or ‘storehouse’ of what needs to be gathered and recognised so that it can be left behind in order to inaugurate the future. The archive manifests law’s authority and its troubled conscience. It is an indispensable part of the liberal legal response to biopolitical violence. This collection challenges established approaches to transitional justice by opening up new dialogues about the problem of assembling law’s archive. The volume presents research drawn from multiple jurisdictions that address the following questions. What resists being archived? What spaces and practices of memory - conscious and unconscious - undo legal and sovereign alibis and confessions? And what narrative forms expose the limits of responsibility, recognition, and reparations? By treating the law as an ‘archive’, this book traces the failure of universalised categories such as 'perpetrator', 'victim', 'responsibility', and 'innocence,' posited by the liberal legal state. It thereby uncovers law’s counter-archive as a challenge to established forms of representing and responding to violence.
