A sound understanding of public international law is indispensable for any lawyer, whether working in an international or domestic context. It is therefore important that students have a thorough theoretical understanding of international law issues, and are able to apply the relevant international legal rules to a given set of facts, so as to arrive at a legally coherent conclusion. This practical aspect of learning international law is often neglected in favour of more theoretical aspects - which is where this book comes in. The book offers a series of hypothetical practical cases in public international law, including some of its specialised branches, such as international human rights law and international criminal law. It challenges students to practise and familiarise themselves with the methodology and to write solutions to practical international legal questions. The book is in two parts: part one contains practical (exam-like) questions, while part two contains the solutions. The practical questions in part one are organised by subject, such as treaty law or state responsibility. One chapter is dedicated to more complex 'interconnected' cases, where students are asked to tackle problems which span multiple potential cases and topics. ENDORSEMENT 'An extremely interesting and innovative text that students studying Public International Law should find invaluable.' Associate Professor Joanne Sellick Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning, University of Plymouth

The experience of many students studying public international law at a university is: "This is fascinating, but what can I do with it?" This practical and focused guide explores the options available to law graduates, beyond the traditional or domestic law career paths. The range of possible careers is vast - from human rights to investment law and from the courtroom or boardroom to the refugee camp. A Guide to International Law Careers will help with considering whether and how to pursue a career in one of these areas. The essential message is that international law jobs are out there and attainable if approached strategically and with perseverance. The text - written as a series of questions and answers - is supplemented by practitioners' views and experiences, and the appendices contain concrete information on the most useful internships, short courses, and Master's programs. This practical guide to careers in international law is written primarily for recent law school graduates and students who wish to seek a career in the UK, as well as other Commonwealth countries - Canada, Australia, and New Zealand in particular. A couple of English language career guides have been published in the past, but they tend to be US focused. Also, uniquely, this guide provides a coherent, step-by-step approach.

Книга Дарона Аджемоглу и Джеймса Робинсона «Почему одни страны богатые, а другие бедные» – один из главных политэкономических бестселлеров последнего времени, эпохальная работа, сравнимая по значению с трудами Сэмюеля Хантингтона, Джареда Даймонда или Фрэнсиса Фукуямы. Авторы задаются вопросом, который в течение столетий волновал историков, экономистов и философов: в чем истоки мирового неравенства, почему мировое богатство распределено по странам и регионам мира столь неравномерно? Ответ на этот вопрос дается на стыке истории, политологии и экономики, с привлечением необычайно обширного исторического материала из всех эпох и со всех континентов, что превращает книгу в настоящую энциклопедию передовой политэкономической мысли.

Hello and welcome to 2016! With great pleasure, I present the 2016 LLB Guide, designed to provide you an insight into every law subject on offer. Whether you are unsure about what textbook to purchase, or whether to study a subject at all, this resource is essential for every UQ law student. This year’s LLB Guide has been enhanced in response to student feedback and what the UQLS Publications Team believes is important to ensuring success. There is stronger focus on student perspectives, as learning from your fellow colleagues is vital to success. A majority of the content comes straight from your peers who have excelled or struggled with these subjects before you. The course information provided by each Course Coordinator has also been provided as knowing what assessors are looking for can be one of the most difficult things. Further, the 2016 LLB Guide is displayed in a more web type format and is now accessible on our new website. I would like to personally thank Scott Veovodin and Jaya Prasad for their assistance here, as accessibility is vital in the busy life of a law student! Finally, the section on advice for 2016 students is displayed in point form, with approximately 4 key tips for students. The LLB Guide relies on student perspectives and I am incredibly grateful for the contributions I received. Thank you to all the students who set aside the time during their summer holidays to contribute to this publication. Remember that this publication serves as a Guide; the rest is in your hands. 2016 is a new year and a fresh start. Make the most of the opportunities that arise, laugh often and drink coffee! But most of all, enjoy every moment. I wish you all the very best for 2016, Gemma Galloway UQLS Publications Team

Examining the experience of the Canada-Vietnam remittances corridor over the past several years, this title is a first step towards identifying the main features and pointing out some of the areas and issues that researchers and authorities should examine more closely. In contrast to the large size and advanced level of development of the U.S.-Mexico remittances corridor, examined in the first case study, the Canada-Vietnam corridor is small in absolute terms and still at a nascent stage of shifting from informal to formal systems. For purposes of discussion, The Canada-Vietnam Remittance Corridor breaks down the remittance process into three stages: the First Mile, when decisions are in the hands of the remittance sender; the Intermediary Stage, comprising the systems that facilitate the cross-border transfer of funds, and; the Last Mile, where the funds reach the hands of the remittance recipient. By analyzing the objectives, obstacles, incentives, and changes occurring at each of these stages in the Canada-Vietnam corridor, lessons are drawn for other remittance sending and receiving countries that seek to encourage formalization of the flows.?ga?s(
