SCAIFE, Laura.

      Handbook of social media and the law / Laura Scaife. - Abingdon : Informa Law from Routledge, 2015

The Social Media Handbook explains how the existing laws of defamation and communications based offences apply to social media communications and explores the tactical considerations both claimants and defendants must be aware of when dealing with cases involving social media. Social media covers a number of different platforms that enable a user to interact and share information such as comments, photographs, videos and audio, publically or privately with other users online. The most well-known include LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Wikipedia and Facebook. While there are existing works covering the law of defamation and communications based offences, this is the first book to cover the specific issues highlighted by social media. This practical guide offers practitioners' innovative ways to handle claims using the existing law and working within the rules of the platform providers themselves.

      Judicial review of national security / David Scharia. - Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2015

In recent years, countries around the world introduced numerous national security programs and military campaigns. Despite the complex legal questions they raise, very few of these measures have been the subject of rigorous judicial review. Nevertheless, the absence of real-time review has had an enormous effect on human rights, rule of law, and on national security. The Supreme Court of Israel provides an excellent case study of a different approach, which allows judges to assess military action in real-time and to issue non-binding results of their evaluation. This raises the question: How was the Court actually able to uphold this challenge? In Judicial Review of National Security, David Scharia explains how the Supreme Court of Israel developed unconventional judicial review tools and practices that allowed it to provide judicial guidance to the Executive in real-time.

      Globalizing transitional justice : contemporary essays / Ruti G. Teitel. - Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014

Among the most prominent and significant political and legal developments since the end of the Cold War is the proliferation of mechanisms for addressing the complex challenges of transition from authoritarian rule to human rights-based democratic constitutionalism, particularly with regards to the demands for accountability in relation to conflicts and abuses of the past. Whether one thinks of the Middle East, South Africa, the Balkans, Latin America, or Cambodia, an extraordinary amount of knowledge has been gained and processes instituted through transitional justice. No longer a byproduct or afterthought, transitional justice is unquestionably the driver of political change.
