To understand globalized law it is necessary to bring together insights gained from disparate strands of study: international political economy, economic law, human rights law, and the law of war. Focusing on WTO, the UN, the World Bank, and the IMF, Globalization and Law shows how their legal and regulatory regimes are linked to the politics of world markets. It also looks at the operation of law and economy at a national level where globalized law can be seen in action. Chapters consider the politics of oil and human rights in Nigeria, and the invasion and 'reconstruction' of Iraq. Other broad themes are also examined. Looking at the fate of people in the third world who are the subjects of economic development and development law, we can bring to light the power relationships and ideologies that are attendant on the development project. In conclusion, it is argued that we need to engage with the claims to humanity that lie behind the notion of human rights, the war against terrorism and military intervention. Globalized law raises fraught questions about the role of international regimes and the interests and values in whose name they claim to operate.

    I don't know if any specific templates will cater to categorizing videos, but that's mainly because I haven't had the need for that before!

    Thanks for helping this novice make sense of the countless available options. I now feel more confident and know the direction I want to take.

      I plan to try out a few of the free onesЙas a test drive. I just hate how long it takes to set up just to get the feel for it. And then having to do it on 3-4 different platforms all takes time. But this is all the business side of things. I just wanted to say thanks for all your work on these reviews. One other thing to add on your list is whether or not blogs are integrated. I have a separate blog now and would like to have it as part of my website and not have my clients leave my site.

    Deb"A Mind of Your Own" is very different from Julia Ross' two books and mine (The Antianxiety Food Solution). All of them offer valuable tools for someone with anxiety and depression.
