MUP FINAL PROOF – <STAGE>, 10/12/2013, SPi 3 Legal framework, institutions and approaches to power The foundational moment If discourses and policy plans were to be implemented, they ought to be couched within a legal framework and to be implemented by specialized institutions. While surveillance and political control usually take place in the grey area between legality and illegality, the Israeli discourse of control, discussed in the previous chapters, could not be reconciled with a reasonable interpretation of a liberal legal framework.

1 Background and legal framework [I] ‘ t is not (as I do take it) to be lightly regarded, yt we have in so short a time so many examples of those that have entered upon that libertie in these parts of ours more I think … than any where els in al England … in which case the censure of the Church is drawn forth against them to their own reformation and example of others.’1 Thus Edmund Bunny, the rector of Bolton Percy in 1595, referred to the incidence of adultery-driven divorce followed by remarriage in Yorkshire during the late sixteenth century.

better or more comprehensive than civilian-protection strategies, even this kind of formulation, which justifies additional measures for staff on the basis of the services they provide for others, sits uncomfortably with the principle of humanity, according to which ‘human value is based on life not utility’ ( Slim, 2015 : 56). Legal Frameworks Differences in legal status do not offer a convincing explanation of differences in security/protection strategy. International

attempting to balance the lack of financial resources with the need to provide ‘relief and works’ for Palestinian refugees, while also recognising the extent to which UNRWA has, since its inception, always already been in the midst of a financial crisis. In effect, in the absence of a fair and just political resolution to the occupation of the Palestinian territories and the implementation of existing legal frameworks to uphold Palestinian refugees’ rights, UNRWA has few options available. Two such options have been outlined above: firstly, seeking

The genesis of Israeli policies of population management, surveillance and political control towards the Palestinian minority

Widely regarded as expert in techniques of surveillance and political control, Israel has been successful in controlling a native population for a long time. Despite tremendous challenges, it has maintained a tight grip over a large Palestinian population in the territories it occupied in the 1967 war. Moreover, it has effectively contained the Palestinian minority inside its 1948 borders. This book discusses the foundation of an Israeli discourse about the Palestinian minority, which Israeli leaders called birour or clarification, and the circumstances of its emergence and crystallization. It talks about the policy of constructing the Palestinians both as non-Jews and as an assortment of insular minorities. The fate of this minority was not only an Israeli internal affair but also an issue of concern to the international community. An analysis of the legal and institutional frameworks, and the role of state power in categorizing the Palestinians, follows. The book also analyses the ways state control and surveillance were implemented at the level of the locality. The book highlights the way state educational policy not just fostered the segmentation described earlier but promoted among students and educators. It then takes up the question of political rights and their meaning under the rule of Military Government. It concludes with personal reflections on the thousands of minutes, protocols, reports, plans and personal messages.

section, we outline the framework of diversity management in Spain, focusing especially on the historical and structural contexts (based on the multinational and legal frameworks). The main findings are summarized under the heading ‘Old questions and new challenges for diversity management’. In the second section, we analyse the management of diversity in Spain related to three interconnected policy fields for the accommodation of diversity: the education, workplace and political rights policy fields, taking into account the framework discussed in the first section

This chapter argues that we should care about carers, and this should be recognised in the law, because this more accurately reflects the reality of people’s lives and because carers and cared for persons have highlighted the practical difficulties that arise when the legal framework fails to acknowledge this reality. As Kittay has observed, ‘when care is not adequately supported, either the cost

It argues that an ethical approach to end-­of-­life care must be centred on the dying person and that finding ways to ensure that this person’s voice is heard must be core to the development of legal frameworks. In this respect, the law has, to date, been inadequate.

Governments would then have an explicit legal framework and guidance towards the ­realisation of the rights of older people. This chapter identifies the area of decision-­making as central to the protection of the rights older people. It addresses the recognition of legal capacity as a central issue to avoid choices being ignored and not respected. This chapter discusses some of the law and policy reforms necessary to meet these standards. Lessons from

against political pluralism, the principles of a state governed by the rule of law’. In the 2000–2006 period, a diversified legal framework was adopted to prevent and sanction all forms of discrimination and the incitement of hate; the establishment of a Fascist, racist or xenophobic organization is punishable by three to fifteen years (Chiriţă – Săndescu in Salat 2008:62–66). The anti-discrimination law was used against Vadim Tudor, who, in a speech on a public radio station, stated that, during the 1993 pogrom, the Romanians were just defending their ‘honour’ against
