Freedom Of Religion Minorities And The Law from the Author: Samantha Knights. Over the past fifty years, England has experienced considerable immigration, and as a result, the population has become increasingly religiously and culturally diverse. This plurality has inevitably raised fundamental questions about the individual and group rights and equality and non-discrimination on the one hand, with tolerance and social cohesion on the other. At a practical level the debates range from the issue of wearing religious clothing in schools to demands for the establishment of additional faith schools, through to requests for employment leave to perform religious rites. Underpinning the debate is the issue of how the political and legal system should view diversity, and how it should balance the competing interests of the individual or group against those of state or wider society, employer or educational establishment. The demands of religious groups and individuals have for some time been articulated in the public sphere and in the courts. However, the introduction of greater protection for religious minorities in English Law, including the Human Rights Act 1998, the EC Equality Directives, and the Equality Act 2006 have provided important milestones in this area. This book briefly covers the historical background to issues of religious freedom in England, and analyses the position of religion in the constitution and with regard to the legal framework including the state's obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights. It then deals in more detail with specific areas of legal practice including education, employment, immigration, and public law, examining key case law and analysing current problems. The book combines detailed analysis with a clear assessment of the practical and procedural issues which practitioners face.

The Impact Of Human Rights Law On Armed Forces from the Author: Peter Rowe. This book considers those aspects of human rights law which may become relevant to the activities of armed forces whether they remain in barracks, undertake training or are deployed in military operations within their own state or outside it. The unique nature of military service and of military courts gives rise to human rights issues in respect both of civilians and soldiers, whether volunteers or conscripts, who find themselves before these courts. Rowe examines these issues as well as the application of international humanitarian law alongside the human rights obligations of the state when forces are training for and involved in armed conflict; where armed forces are deployed in situations of civil disorder; and where states contribute armed forces to multinational forces. An invaluable resource for scholars in human rights, international law and military studies, and anyone concerned with policy relevant to the armed forces.

Conscientious Objection from the Author: Özgür Heval Çınar. Refusing to take part in war is as old as war itself. This wide-ranging and original book brings together four different bodies of knowledge to examine the practice of conscientious objection: historical and philosophical analyses of conscientious objection as a critique of compulsory military service and militarization; feminist, LGBT and queer analyses of conscientious objection as a critique of patriarchy, sexism, and heterosexism; activist and academic analyses of conscientious objection as a social movement and individual act of resistance; legal analyses of the status of conscientious objection in international and national law. Conscientious objection is an increasingly important subject of academic and political debate in countries including the US, Israel and Turkey. This book provides a much needed introduction and tool for making sense of the history of nation-states in the 20th century and understanding the political developments of the early 21st century.

Images And Human Rights from the Author: Nancy Lipkin Stein. This book explores issues of creation, distribution, and control of images through official and unofficial sources, asking what impact that has had on human rights and what the ethical implications are. The volume includes research from healthcare advocates, human rights scholars and activists, photographers, and visual anthropologists who see a need for more careful contextual interpretation of images in global and local settings. It represents diverse forms of scholarship and the ever-changing field of research methodologies, and it examines how human rights issues take advantage of visual methodologies and how the visual works to communicate these issues with the public. As such, this collection will be useful for researchers studying in the fields of visual culture and human rights.
