Strategic Visions for Human Rights takes a multi-disciplinary approach to future directions for human rights. It looks beyond what international human rights treaties have so far established and considers the context in which rights in the twenty-first century might develop to meet needs. The book examines how international law might be utilized to protect groups rather than just individual members of the group and it also calls into question the liberal positivist approach to international law that provides the framework for human rights norms. The book is written and published in honour of Professor Kevin Boyle. It celebrates his long career in human rights law both as an academic and a practising barrister. Professor Boyle has taken numerous cases on human rights issues to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and has long been involved in human rights aspects of the peace process in Northern Ireland. He has published widely on human rights issues, focusing on freedom of expression and religion and non-discrimination. The contributors to this volume are well-known academics in the field of human rights and include Francesca Klug, Conor Gearty, David Beetham and Asbjorn Eide. Amongst some of the issues addressed in the book are the future of the European Court of Human Rights, the role of academics play in engendering transition to post-conflict democratic states, and human rights and religious pluralism.

The Delivery of Human Rights reflects on two overlapping issues in international human rights law: how can existing norms be better implemented and effected, and how can other branches of international law or other international actors be used so as to provide an improved delivery of those norms. Rather than simply looking at the content of the rights, this book will also explore how the framers’ intention that individuals benefit from the norms can be achieved. The book is written and published in honour of Professor Sir Nigel Rodley KBE. It celebrates his career as an academic and practitioner in the area of human rights. Professor Rodley acted as the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture from 1993 to 2001 and is currently a member of the UN Human Rights Committee. He is also a member of the International Commission of Jurists. Since 2001 he has been a Member of the UN Human Rights Committee, established under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. In 1998 he was knighted in the Queen's New Year's Honours list for services to Human Rights and International Law and in 2000 he received an honorary LLD from Dalhousie University. He is Professor and Chair of the Human Rights Centre, University of Essex, having taught there since 1990. The contributors to this volume are notable experts in the area of human rights law and include Paul Hunt, Malcolm Evans, Michael O’Flaherty and David Weissbrodt. The book addresses such topics as the Role of Special Rapporteurs, how can the absolute prohibition of torture be properly implemented, Responsibility to Protect, non-state actors, including businesses, and human rights.

There are a multitude of UN legal instruments which pertain to the rights of freedom of expression and information, and this book is the first to comprehensively map them and their function. It details the chequered history of both rights within the UN system and evaluates the suitability of the system for overcoming contemporary challenges and threats to the rights. Leading scholars address key issues, such as how the rights to freedom of expression and information can come into conflict with other human rights and with public policy goals, such as counter-terrorism. The book's institutional focus comprises five international treaties, UNESCO and the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression. Relevant for academics, lawyers, policy-makers and civil society actors, it also examines how new communication technologies have prompted fresh thinking about the substance and scope of the rights to freedom of expression and information.

Alessandro Giuliani, der wohlbehütete Sohn eines begüterten römischen Rechtsanwalts, liebt Reiten und Bergsteigen ebenso wie Musik und Kultur. Er studiert Kunstgeschichte und Ästhetik und ist ein weltläufiger, vielversprechender junger Mann, als 1914 der Erste Weltkrieg hereinbricht. Ein halbes Jahrhundert später trifft Alessandro, inzwischen ein weißhaariger alter Herr, auf einer Landstraße außerhalb Roms mit dem jungen Fabrikarbeiter Nicolo zusammen: Die Unverschämtheit eines Busfahrers und Alessandros noble Geste der Solidarität mit dem fremden jungen Mann lassen die beiden für zwei Tage und Nächte zu einer Schicksalsgemeinschaft werden. Gemeinsam legen sie die 70 Kilometer nach Monte Prato, ihrem eigentlichen Ziel, zu Fuß zurück. Alessandro beginnt sich an seine Jugend zu erinnern und erzählt. Wie er Soldat wurde, ein Held, dann Deserteur, Kriegsgefangener, wie er zum Tode verurteilt und schließlich begnadigt wurde. Wie er auf tragische Weise eine Familie verlor und wunderbarerweise eine gewann. Nicolo begreift, daß in den Geschichten des alten Mannes von Krieg und Liebe die Summe eines ganzen Lebens steckt. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)

Oskar Panizza: Das Liebeskonzil Ein alter, kranker und böser Gott Vater erzürnt sich über die zügellosen Orgien, die die Menschen und auch der Papst selbst im 15. Jahrhundert feiern. Die zu einem Konzil einberufene, etwas gewöhnliche Maria und ein kränklicher Christus können den tobenden Alten von der Idee abbringen, die Menschen auszulöschen und regen stattdessen einen Pakt mit dem Teufel an, der den Menschen ein Strafe für ihre Lüsternheit schicken soll. Dieser erfindet dazu die Syphilis und erhält im Gegenzug ein neues Portal zur Unterwelt und das Recht zu sagen, was er denkt. Panizzas groteske Himmelstragödie kommt ihn teuer zu stehen, er wird zu einem Jahr Einzelhaft verurteilt und verlässt nach Absitzen seiner Strafe Deutschland als gebrochener Mann, um sich in der Schweiz niederzulassen. Von dort ausgewiesen geht er nach Paris und veröffentlicht 1899 »Parisjana. Deutsche Verse aus Paris«, die in Deutschland sofort beschlagnahmt werden und Panizza eine Anklage wegen Majestätsbeleidigung einbringen. Der gelernte Nervenarzt Oskar Panizza leidet unter der Wahnvorstellung, Kaiser Wilhelm II. verfolge ihn und verbringt seine letzten Lebensjahre entmündigt in geschlossenen Nervenheilanstalten, bis er 1921 stirbt. Erstdruck: Zürich (Verlagsmagazin) 1895. Vollständige Neuausgabe mit einer Biographie des Autors. Herausgegeben von Karl-Maria Guth. Berlin 2013. Textgrundlage ist die Ausgabe: Oskar Panizza: Das Liebeskonzil und andere Schriften. Herausgegeben und mit einem Nachwort von Hans Prescher. Neuwied und Berlin: Luchterhand, 1964. Die Paginierung obiger Ausgabe wird in dieser Neuausgabe als Marginalie zeilengenau mitgeführt. Umschlaggestaltung von Thomas Schultz-Overhage unter Verwendung des Bildes: Paul Cézanne, Die Orgie (Ausschnitt), um 1870. Gesetzt aus Minion Pro, 11 pt.
