The War In Congo: Transnational Conflict Networks And The Failure Of Internationalism

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 10:00:25 EST

Volume 10, Issue 2, 2006-2007
Until recently, scholarship on transnational networks that shape the patterns of internal wars in Africa has been scant. While resource exploitation, ethnicity and competing claims to political power constitute the main thrust of the discourse on African conflicts, the idea that these factors could be indicative of the ‘economic and political complexes' that links local conflicts to global network of trade, ideas and power often eludes attention. The reason might be historical just as it is political.



A Critical Appraisal Of Pension System Reforms In Nigeria

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 10:00:25 EST

Volume 10, Issue 2, 2006-2007
The issue of pension in Nigeria has become one of the thorniest issues in the country today with millions of retired Nigerian workers, living in abject poverty and neglect as a result of the failure of the country's pension system. Arguably, the Federal Government of Nigeria is the highest employer of labor within the formal sector of the economy.



What Caused The Multiplicity Of International Courts And Tribunals?

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 10:00:25 EST

Volume 10, Issue 2, 2006-2007
The proliferation of international courts and tribunals alias, the multiplicity of international judicial forums, is one of the topical issues in international law. This development in the realm of international dispute settlement comes, according to Phillipe Sands, at the fourth phase in the development of international adjudication. International disputes prior to 1899 were adjudicated almost exclusively between States, with some exceptions.



Territorial Claims By Divided Nations: Applying The Irish Experience To Korea

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 10:00:25 EST

Volume 10, Issue 2, 2006-2007
The Republic of Korea ("ROK" or "South Korea") in its Constitution makes a territorial claim on the entire Korean Peninsula. By definition, this includes all of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea ("DPRK" or "North Korea"). Until 1998, the Constitution of Ireland contained a similar territorial claim on the entire island of Ireland, which included a claim on the province of Northern Ireland. This article examines the changes made to the Irish Constitution, and argues that a similar constitutional approach could be adopted by South Korea as a confidence-building measure in the interests of reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula.



The Role of Nongovernmental Organizations in International Environmental Law

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 10:00:25 EST

Volume 10, Issue 2, 2006-2007
The world is carved into countries by man-made borders, but nature transcends these boundaries and affects every part of the earth indiscriminately. To effectively manage and preserve the earth's natural resources, individual nations and organizations must work together in a system of cooperation. The Citizens Action Plan for the 1990s foreshadowed this movement with the statement: "A powerful common vision is emerging all over . . . A planetary cultural ecology is being born, embodied in a full range of ethical principles."
