United States and its allies in the prosecution of this ‘war on terror’. As Byers makes clear, international law has done so via the separate canons of the jus ad bellum and the jus in bello – though, to these, we might wish to add the jus post bellum , or the rights and responsibilities that accrue in the aftermath of armed conflict. 2 Within this framework, determinations regarding the activation of the laws of the jus ad bellum and/or the jus in bello are of signal importance because they locate us within that part of the spectrum of international

Patients’ rights and responsibilities were discussed at the 1979 NCC Consumer Congress, and as a result the NCC began to draw up a guide to patients’ rights.47 The difficulty was, as Elizabeth Stanton remarked in the NCC’s journal, the Clapham Omnibus, that ‘Patients’ rights are not stated as such in law, but stem from doctors’ duties in common law and the

ignoring the fact that, in a liberal society, the freedom to assert communal identity exists within a wider context of democratic rights and responsibilities. Once members of a cultural community acknowledge that they are part of a multicultural society, then the communal interest cannot form the only basis through which education contributes to the formation of self.82 Feinberg identifies the responsibility of society to allow children autonomy in their choices and the right of children to this freedom as being among the democratic rights and responsibilities that

Settlers of virtually all classes, regions, and ethnic heritages took pride in the British traditions of political progress and liberty and co-ownership in a global empire to claim the rights and responsibilities of a British-imperial citizenship. It was from the political, cultural, and

The framework was provided by UNCLOS for Norway and the Soviet Union/​Russia to identify and negotiate overlapping claims about extended continental shelves in the Barents Sea (see Beyers, 2014, for an overview of the various overlapping claims and their process towards resolution). Long-​term bilateral negotiations resulted in the 2010 Barents Sea Delimitation Agreement. Likewise, the USA (albeit as a non-​signatory to UNCLOS) and the Soviet Union

related but distinct components: institutions, relationships, identities and constraints. Each of these themes is now developed in more detail, a prelude to the in-depth comparative case study. The study of political institutions is arguably the major growth area in contemporary political science. Political scientists have always studied institutions. Old institutionalist frameworks would generally describe organisations in terms of their formal rules and their legal rights and responsibilities (Finer, 1970). There was a sociological variety of old institutionalism

These contracts have potentially empowering effects for the service providers, as well as the citizens or residents of a community. The entrepreneurial self is a citizen identification that emphasises the rights and responsibilities of present-day citizens. This identity is thus a very diffident identity than the bureaucracy’s (passive) client. This shift from bureaucratic to liberal rule also

A republic of laws, of rights and responsibilities; of proper civic order; where the delinquency and arrogance of a particular version, of a particular kind of ‘morality’, will no longer be tolerated or ignored.

This is not to deny the particular and potent power of racist thought which cast the indigenous subject as inherently incapable of exercising the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Rather
