Key Legal Developments in Selected Jurisdictions
Edited by Ekaterina Aristova and Uglješa Grušić
What private law avenues are open to victims of human rights violations? This collection explores this question across sixteen jurisdictions in the Global South and Global North, examining mechanisms in domestic law for bringing civil claims in relation to the involvement of states, corporations and individuals in specific categories of human rights violation: (i) assault or unlawful arrest and detention of persons; (ii) environmental harm; and (iii) harmful or unfair labour conditions. This global perspective assesses the question in jurisdictions as diverse as Kenya, Switzerland, the US and the Philippines. A much needed statement on responding to human rights violations.
Ekaterina Aristova is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Human Rights and Practice at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, UK.
Uglješa Grušić is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Laws, University College London, UK.

Enriching Legal Doctrine
Marc Loth, Tilburg University, the Netherlands
Contemplating the nature, practice and study of private law, this comprehensive book offers a detailed overview of private law’s theoretical dimensions. It promotes a reflective attitude towards the topic, encouraging the reader to question how private law is practiced and studied, what this implies for their own engagement in the field and what kind of private lawyer they want to be. This thought-provoking book draws on examples from a range of legal systems to provide philosophical perspectives on the diverse dimensions of private law.
