Kalt -- We chose this, now what? : what comes after blood quantum? / Gyasi Ross -- Applying indigenous values to contemporary tribal citizenship : challenge and opportunity / LaDonna Harris, Kathryn Harris Tijerina, and Laura Harris.

"A person's blood quantum is defined as the percentage of their ancestors who are documented as full-blood Native Americans. The US federal government uses a blood quantum minimum as a measure of "Indian" identity to manage tribal enrollments and access to cultural and social services. Evidence suggests that if current demographic trends continue, within a few generations tribes will legally disappear. Through essays, personal stories, case studies, satire, and poetry, a lauded collection of international contributors will explore blood quantum as biology and as cultural metaphor. Featuring diverse and talented Native voices representing different generations, backgrounds, and literary styles, The Great Vanishing Act, addresses the most critical issue facing Native Americans and all indigenous populations in the 21st century and hopes to redefine the meaning of cultural citizenship"--

Uncertain accommodation : aboriginal identity and group rights in the Supreme Court of Canada
Panagos, Dimitrios, 1973- author
Vancouver ; UBC Press, [2016]
The historical and legal framework for section -- Competing approaches and conceptualizations of aboriginality -- The case for a relational approach -- The nation-to-nation, colonial, and citizen-state approaches -- Submissions to the court -- What the justices said -- Aboriginal rights jurisprudence and identity contestation -- A problematic conception of rights.

"In 1982, Canada formally recognized Aboriginal rights within its Constitution. The move reflected a consensus that states should and could use group rights to protect and accommodate subnational groups within their borders. Decades later, however, no one is happy. This state of affairs, Panagos argues, is rooted in a failure to define what aboriginality means, which has led to the promotion and protection of a single vision of aboriginality--that of the justices of the Supreme Court. He concludes that there can be no justice so long as the state continues to safeguard a set of values and interests defined by non-Aboriginal people."--

An exceptional law : Section 98 and the emergency state, 1919-1936
Molinaro, Dennis G., author
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, [2017]
For the protection of people and state -- Defining suspects -- The trial -- Citizens of the world -- Outlaws -- judgement.

"During periods of intense conflict, either at home or abroad, governments enact emergency powers in order to exercise greater control over the society that they govern. The expectation though is that once the conflict is over, these emergency powers will be lifted. An Exceptional Law showcases how the emergency law used to repress labour activism during the First World War became normalized with the creation of Section 98 of the Criminal Code, following the Winnipeg General Strike. Dennis G. Molinaro argues that the institutionalization of emergency law became intricately tied to constructing a national identity. Following a mass deportation campaign in the 1930s, Section 98 was repealed in 1936 and contributed to the formation of Canada's first civil rights movement. Portions of it were used during the October Crisis and recently in the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2015. Building on the theoretical framework of Agamben, Molinaro advances our understanding of security as ideology and reveals the intricate and codependent relationship between state-formation, the construction of liberal society, and exclusionary practices."--

Legal consequences of peremptory norms in international law
Costelloe, Daniel, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Peremptory norms and their legal consequences as a feature of general international law -- Legal consequences for treaties -- Peremptory norms outside the Vienna Convention : treaties of questionable validity by reason of their content -- Legal consequences for Security Council resolutions -- Legal consequences for certain unilateral acts -- Legal consequences in the law of international responsibility -- Conflict between a peremptory norm and general international law: legal consequences for state immunity.

When is a norm peremptory? This is a question that has troubled legal scholars throughout the development of modern international law. In this work, Daniel Costelloe suggests - through an examination of State practice and international materials - that it is the legal consequences of a norm which distinguish it as peremptory. This book sheds new light on the legal consequences that peremptory norms have, for instance, in the law of treaties, international responsibility and state immunity. Unlike their substance or identification, the consequences of peremptory norms have remained under-studied. This book is the first specifically on this topic and is essential reading for all scholars and practitioners of public international law.

Who judges? : designing jury systems in Japan, East Asia, and Europe
Kage, Rieko, 1973- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
1. Introduction -- 2. Theoretical framework: participation and partisan politics -- 3. The distribution of cases -- 4. The history of the lay judge system debate in Japan up to 1996 -- 5. Bringing the lay judge system back in, 1997-2004 -- 6. Setting the agenda: new left-oriented parties and deliberations in the Japanese parliament -- 7. Proposals for lay participation in the Republic of China -- 8. Introducing jury systems in South Korea and Spain -- 9. The impact of new lay judge systems -- 10. Conclusions.

"The delivery of justice is a core function of the modern state. The recent introduction of jury/lay judge systems for criminal trials in Japan, South Korea, Spain, and perhaps soon Taiwan represents a potentially major reform of this core function, shifting decision making authority from professional judges to ordinary citizens. But the four countries chose to empower their citizens to markedly different degrees. Why? Who Judges? is the first book to offer a systematic account for why different countries design their new jury/lay judge systems in very different ways. Drawing on detailed theoretical analysis, original case studies, and content analysis of fifty years of Japanese parliamentary debates, the book reveals that the relative power of 'new left'-oriented political parties explains the different magnitudes of reform in the four countries. Rieko Kage's vital new study opens up an exciting new area of research for comparative politics and socio-legal studies"--

Women judges in the Muslim world : a comparative study of discourse and practice
edited by Nadia Sonneveld and Monika Lindbekk
Leiden : Brill, [2017]
Foreword : making the case for women judges in the Muslin World / Valentine M. Moghadom -- Introduction : a historical overview of gender and judicial authority in the Muslin World / Nadia Soneveld and Monika Lindbekk -- Do female judges judge differently?

Cardinal -- The best of times, the worst of times : State-Salaried female legal professionals and foreign policy in post-Qadhafi Libya / Jessica Carlisle -- Women judges in Egypt : discourse and practice / Monika Lindbekk.

Women Judges in the Muslim World: A Comparative Study of Discourse and Practice' fills a gap in academic scholarship by examining public debates and judicial practices surrounding the performance of women as judges in eight Muslim-majority countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Morocco). Gender, class, and ethnic biases are inscribed in laws, particularly in the domain of shari'a-derived family law. Editors Nadia Sonneveld and Monika Lindbekk have carefully woven together the extensive fieldwork and expertise of each author. The result is a rich tapestry that brings out the various effects of women judges in the management of justice. In contrast to early scholarship, they convincingly prove that?the woman judge? does not exist --Back cover.
