Water - Research Guide International Law

Le droit des cours d’eau internationaux prend de plus en plus d’importance malgré sa jeunesse relative en tant que thème du droit international public et malgré le fait que l’essentiel de ce droit soit en train d’émerger et ne soit pas encore bien établi. Depuis l’antiquité, quand les premières civilisations se sont établies le long des grands fleuves du monde, l’eau a joué un rôle important dans le développement économique et social. Outre la consommation domestique, l’eau servait principalement à la navigation, comme le révèlent la doctrine antique et la pratique des États. Suite à la révolution industrielle, la concurrence entre les utilisations des cours d’eau internationaux autres que la navigation a encouragé le développement du droit international de l’eau.

Blog bibliothèque The Effectiveness of Sanctions and Iran’s Nuclear Program

With Iran and the United States seemingly on the brink of war, it would be justified to examine both country’s viewpoints and intentions to gain a greater understanding of this international relations dilemma. While the Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif affirms that his country would never pursue a nuclear weapon since Islam prevents the country in doing so, many in Washington are not convinced. US President Donald Trump remains certain that Iran’s nuclear program represents a threat to international security and peace, with his administration opting to impose sanctions this past year. However, with all of the controversy surrounding this international situation an important question should be asked: Are sanctions an effective tool in order to make Iran comply with the demands of the international community?

Women’s Rights and Gender Equality

cnn-womens-march-on-washington

Women’s rights are the rights claimed for women and girls worldwide, and formed the basis for the women’s rights and feminist movement. In some countries, these rights are institutionalized by law and local custom, whereas in other countries these rights are ignored and suppressed. Issues associated with women’s rights include the right: to bodily integrity and autonomy, to be free from sexual violence, to vote, to hold public office, to enter into legal contracts, to have equal rights in family law, to fair wages or equal pay, to have reproductive rights, and to education. Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society and when the different behaviours, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favoured.
