agriculture, health, education and administration at various levels, ranging from the local
to the international. Yet others concentrate on the successes and failures
of
specific
development projects. In most cases the interrelations between the themes outlined above
are tackled, though with differing points
of
emphasis.
Equality in law between men and women in the European Community: the Netherlands.
-Asscher-Vonk, Irene. - European Commission. - Dordrecht: Martinus Nijhoff, 1995. -
xxix, 136 p.
ISBN: 0-7923-1837-4
This publication is part
of
the series 'Equality in law between men and women in the
European Community', which analyses the legal framework for equal opportunities which
now exists in the Community due to the adoption
of
EC directives on equal treatment,
equal pay and social security, and the work
of
the European Court
of
Justice in this area.
It
looks at how the EC directives have been implemented and interpreted in each Member
State, and at the other legislative and constitutional provisions affecting the principle
of
equality. Extracts from or digests
of
national case-law are included, and each volume is
structured so that Member States' provisions on equality can be compared.
Freedom
of
religion or belief: ensuring effective international legal protection. -Tahzib,
Bahiyyih G., 1995. - xxxii, 600 p.
Ethno-religious and interreligious conflicts as well as religious extremism are causing
growing concern in all parts
of
the world. In regard to the current protection
of
freedom
of
religion or belief, this volume provides the reader with answers to two questions: why
has the United Nations not adopted a legally binding instrument on freedom
of
religion
or belief, and how can the international community ensure effective protection
of
freedom
of
religion or belief. This Ph.D thesis describes the unfolding
of
international standards
and procedures regarding freedom
of
religion or belief from the establishment
of
the
United Nations to the present. In addition, the author investigates the possibility
of
a
separate convention and an optional protocol to an existing human rights treaty. Since it
demonstrates that the arguments in favour
of
these instruments have weakened, other ways
and means
of
enhancing international legal protection are suggested.
