    Adaptation, compensation and imposition: paradigms for purging the Bosnian judiciary2008In: International Peacekeeping, ISSN 1353-3312, E-ISSN 1743-906X, ISSN 1743-906X (electronic) 1353-3312 (paper), Vol. 15, no 3, p. 362-372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Just as the international community was late in discovering the significance of the judiciary for the success of peacebuilding in Bosnia and Herzegovina, international agencies were also late in identifying corruption as a key reason why the Bosnian judicial agencies were not working. The steps taken eventually to address the situation, including introducing reformed judicial admission, discipline and dismissal regimes, were not strategic, but reactive in nature. Notably, the international community initially adhered to the idea that these reforms should be domestically 'owned' and 'led', and that the resulting laws should resonate well with pre-existing legal-cultural paradigms; but as this process did not produce the desired results, the Office of the High Representative and the Independent Judicial Commission chose gradually to increase their involvement, eventually assuming almost complete control over the process. The process culminated in the firing of almost the entire Bosnian judiciary and the imposition of an internationalized structure for judicial appointments and dismissals. Although this policy stood in stark contrast to the values of local ownership and local leadership, it has essentially produced positive long-term results.

    Abstract [en]

    This volume collects the proceedings of the Symposium on Asian Constitutionalism in Transition. A comparative perspective, held on December 14 and 15, 2007 in Siena.Since the 1990s, many processes of democratization have taken place in various parts of the world. However, while those in Eastern Europe and Africa have been thoroughly analyzed, less attention has been paid to those involving Asian Countries.This is even more true in Italy, where Asian law has been almost exclusively addresses by Private and Commercial law scholars. Instead, Constitutional law plays a fundamental role in shaping the legal culture and the system of the government and represents the precondition to master more specific fields of law.This volume would like to fill the gap, by drawing the attention on the constitutional developments and changes which have recently involved Eastern Asia Countries.The volume is divided into three parts: Methodological problems; Democratic transitions and the rule of law; Economic transitions between market and rights.

    From ownership to imposition: the process of creating a legally accountable Bosnian judiciary2012In: Corruption and post-conflict peacebuilding: selling the peace? / [ed] Christine S. Cheng & Dominik Zaum, London: Routledge , 2012, 1, p. 114-125Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Corruption has been recognized as a key challenge to post-conflict peacebuilding efforts, undermining the legitimacy and effectiveness of state institutions, and compromising key peacebuilding tasks such as disarmament and reconstruction. However, in the short run, accepting corruption might be necessary to finding a political settlement and stabilizing a post-conflict order. Our review of the debate suggests that corruption in these contexts is first and foremost a political problem and needs to be addressed as such. Anti-corruption measures, such as promoting accountability and the rule of law, need to be considered in the context of wider peacebuilding objectives.

    Judicial reform under international law: notes from Bosnia and Herzegovina2001In: Nordic Journal of International Law, ISSN 0902-7351, E-ISSN 1571-8107, Vol. 70, no 4, p. 489-511Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a result of a recognition that many of the atrocities of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina stemmed from poor respect for fundamental democratic and human rights principles, the Dayton Peace Accords (DPA) came to emphasize that the new BiH should be a democratic state operating under the rule of law and that the state and entity governments should ensure the highest level of internationally recognized human rights standards and fundamental freedoms. It was also clear to the international community that the judicial authorities of BiH would not be able to transform this language into reality when the nationalist political parties resisted any such development. Annex 10 of the DPA therefore gave the Office of the High Representative, the international body responsible for the implementation of the DPA and the highest authority `in theatre', a far-reaching mandate, sometimes referred to as `protectorate-style powers', to decide, interpret and implement policies as it sees appropriate and to substitute itself for local authorities when they fail to promote the goals and principles spelled out in the DPA. In order to promote judicial reform and safeguard vital rule of law interests, the High Representative may consequently impose decisions and laws and remove obstructionist officials. This article describes how these powers are exercised and how the broader effort of judicial reform, involving a wide range of national and international actors, is organized in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    Legal reform and private enterprise: the Vietnamese experience1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Decades after the rise and fall of the Law and Development movement, crude theories about the relationship of law to economic development have reappeared in the wake of "transition". Having observed the process of creating laws governing ownership and contracts in Vietnam, the author of this thesis seeks to determine whether the perceived problems exist in reality and whether the "standard legal prescription" for solving them actually works. The official aspect of the legal reforms, i.a. goals and drafting, has been discussed with legislators, officials and other informed people. The response of those meant to benefit from the laws, the actors in the marketplace, has been explored in interviews with businessmen in and around Hanoi.

    Vietnam's reliance on foreign legal models is pardy a consequence of the absence of effective means for developing viable organic solutions and partly of a reluctant recognition that overseas trade and intercourse necessitate international compatibility. A favoured technique is to single out individual elements of foreign laws that are considered acceptable and appropriate, while rejecting others. Thus, while much of the new legislation appears to be fairly "modern" and "conventional", certain underlying fundamentals have been rejected for fear that they should be carriers of "dangerous" ideas and practices. Most businessmen nevertheless feel safe in the sense that they are not afraid of expropriation or other immediate threats to their existence. The objective factors of law are intertwined with political "moods" and other subjective factors, and those who believe in their ability to correctly interpret these subtle signals have confidence in the future. That many successful businessmen still rely on kinship ties and moral concepts for day-for-day transactions is another reason to doubt the urgency of the need for "Western-style" laws. However, in this case, changes in the expanding marketplace, e.g. more diverse moral concepts, in the wake of expanding trade, alter the relative costs of formality and informality and promote the new Civil Code and Commercial Law as providers of model terms for impersonal transactions.

    That Vietnamese businessmen consider these laws basically good, but at the same time describe the legal system as a whole as "unattractive", indicates a need for judicial reform incorporating traditional concepts of rule of law. The leadership however is ambivalent. It regards the presence of discretion and corruption as a threat to its authority and appreciates that uniformity is important for state-building purposes, but is not willing to compromise with the Party's leading role in society. The resulting policy, a refined version of "socialist legality" or rule by law, meaning that state organs are bound by legislation and that citizens are assured that their economic rights will be upheld as long as they follow the rules, is inherently untenable and incapable of providing the kind of protection associated with conventional rule of law.

    Rule of Law and Security Sector Reform: Casual Assumptions, Unintended Risks and the Need for Norms2012In: Hague Journal on the Rule of Law / [ed] Julio Faundez & Ronald Janse, Cambridge, UK: T M C Asser press , 2012, 4, p. 98-119Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines rule of law (ROL) and security sector reform (SSR) linkages in crisis management. In particular, the article looks into why international assistance providers chose to categorize a situation and ensuing response strategy as rule of law or SSR, how this categorization is motivated and explained to international and national partners and stakeholders, and how this categorization affects national laws, institutions and other arrangements in post-conflict and crisis societies. The article is borne out of an observation, based on events in the Arab Spring, that the character of international community responses to rule of law threats and challenges has as a strong focus on security. Rule of law promotion taking place in UN and EU missions has undergone a ‘securitization’ in how reforms are conceived and put into practice, compared with rule of law in development aid and past experiences of rule of law assistance in post-communist transitions.

    Rule of Law Promoton: Global Perspectives, Local Applications2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Legal and judicial reform, or “rule of law promotion”, is – and is likely to remain – a priority for international organizations, aid agencies and national governments. The elasticity of the rule of law concept allows it to invoke in support of conflict prevention and peace-building, political transition and human rights, and promoting economic development. Operationally, rule of law project design and programming seem to be converging worldwide. Yet, as rule of law promotion expands its geographic reach to new conflict zones and to Asia, diversity in local political, economic and social environments becomes more obvious. This volume explores what happens when global rule of law promotion confronts local realities, and with what results. We present a fresh collection of essays from new and established scholars in Europe, the United States, Australia and Japan. The contributors explore local case studies ranging from Aceh, Cambodia and East Timor through Vietnam and the PRC, as well as studies of international rule of law promoters including the EU, the World Bank and the UN Security Council. The contributions highlight the increased complexity of the field; the proliferation of local and non-state actors involved in rule of law promotion; and the need for more accountability and good governance by international actors themselves.

    The New Black on the Development Catwalk: Incorporating Rule of Law into the Sustainable Development Goals2015In: Washington International Law Journal, ISSN 2377-0872, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 435-457Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As the post-2015 Development Agenda is set to replace the Millennium Development Goals (“MDGs”), one of the most controversial new elements of the new agenda is the rule of law. While all of the official fora for discussing and producing recommendations have concluded that the rule of law (or some variation) should be included, there are still significant challenges to its incorporation in the final Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”). The interrelated points of contention have included whether rule of law applies at the national government level, whether it encompasses domestic governance, and how the concept should be defined and measured. Going forward, there are a few key factors influencing whether and how the rule of law will be incorporated into the next round of development goals: 1) the compelling force of traditional views on development in determining member states’ positions in the debate; 2) the continued importance of the United Nations General Assembly (“UNGA”) Rule of Law Declaration; 3) the centrality of the General Assembly’s Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (“OWG”); and 4) the ease of measurement and implementation of proposed indicators. If incorporated into the new agenda, a rule of law goal will likely include indicators that are easily evaluated and generate little political friction, such as legal identity.

    Rule of law in public administration: problems and ways ahead in post-conflict peace-building2010In: Hague Journal on the Rule of Law, ISSN 1876-4045, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 171-202Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article demonstrates that in many peace-building environments, public administration reform and justice sector reform are promoted as separate projects and underpinned by different paradigms, namely making the administration more effective and efficient while introducing and strengthening rule of law and human rights principles in the justice sector. The reasons for this division include lack of knowledge among international and national policy-makers concerning the relevance of the rule of law for public administration reform, vague and conflicting peace-building mandates and objectives, and differences in topical orientation and ‘culture’ among the international actors concerned. The resulting rule of law deficit in public administration reform has adverse effects on both states and individuals, not least for the protection of fundamental human rights. This deficit is also symptomatic of an even deeper dilemma: the distinction between ends and means in post-conflict efforts.

    In order to more closely integrate rule of law dimensions in public administration reform, the article suggests an inventory of possible approaches, and relates these to current and future challenges and needs. The inventory comprises developing concepts of rule of law in public administration, promoting transformation of international rule of law principles to national law, facilitating institutional reforms to ensure the presence of institutions willing and able to adhere to the rule of law; the development of manuals, handbooks and other ‘aids’ for law-makers and administrators; developing tools for monitoring the ‘qualitative’ dimensions of public administration; transparency enhancement to enable individuals to enforce their rights; and improving inter-agency/sector co-operation in order to promote coordination and integrated approaches.

    Same-sex parental leave: Legislation and equality2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is known to have one of the world's most generous parental insurances, both inlength and flexibility which has led to a high maternity rate and more women in paidwork. The political work on equality in Sweden has the goal that women and men shallhave the same power to shape society and their own lives. This has led to legislationaimed at getting fathers to stay more at home with their children. There has been plenty ofresearch on this subject so this study goes off the main track and looks at how legislationaround parenthood works for same-sex couples and if paternal leave is shared moreequally between same-sex parents than heterosexual parents. Discourse analysis of thelegislation and a survey with same-sex families followed by interviews indicate that samesexcouples share parental leave more equally than heterosexual couples. Legislationworks well for most same-sex families except for the process of related adoption. Reasonsfor more equal sharing of parental leave is hard to find but could depend on the fact thatsame-sex couples have been couples for a longer time, than heterosexual couples, beforedeciding to have children. Wage gap between men and women is a reason whyheterosexual couples do not share equally and it could be vice versa for same-sex couples.

    Large Businesses: Co-operative compliance in action2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Key Findings

    •  Understanding how co-operative compliance programmes — collaborations between tax administrations and corporations — have an impact demands a practice-based perspective.
    • There is no single model of the co-operative compliance model that works universally.
    • Designing and implementing a co-operative compliance programme ought to consider: whether a pilot is needed, fit with existing laws, the formality in agreements between corporations and tax administrations, voluntariness and inclusiveness respectively of participating corporations, points of contact and whether advance rulings are legally binding.
    • Tax administrations designing, implementing and working with co-operative compliance programmes should carefully assess seven socio-cultural dimensions: existing tax culture, possibilities for evaluation, required competences, structural and organizational hindrances, resistance among stakeholders in the tax arena, trust and equality.
