Women's rights and religious law : domestic and international perspectives / edited by Fareda Banda and Lisa Fishhbayn Joffe. - London : Routledge, 2016.

The three Abrahamic faiths have dominated religious conversations for millennia but the relations between state and religion are in a constant state of flux. This relationship may be configured in a number of ways. Religious norms may be enforced by the state as part of a regime of personal law or, conversely, religious norms may be formally relegated to the private sphere but can be brought into the legal realm through the private acts of individuals. Enhanced recognition of religious tribunals or religious doctrines by civil courts may create a hybrid of these two models.

Competition law, comparative private enforcement and collective redress across the EU / edited by Barry Rodger. - Alphen aan den Rijn : Kluwer Law International, 2014.

This book presents and evaluates the results of an AHRC funded research project designed to generate a quantitative analysis of the extent to which private enforcement of competition law has taken place across twenty-seven EU Member States over a period of 13 years to 1 May 2012 in order to consider the extent to which the rights provided by competition law in the EU are protected and accorded effectiveness. It fills a major gap in our knowledge of the use of private litigation in Europe, especially in relation to consumer redress in competition-related cases, providing valuable empirical evidence to inform policy debate and developments.

Fountain, Lynn

     Leading the internal audit function / Lynn Fountain, CRMA, CGMA. - Boca Raton : CRC Press Taylor & Francis Group, 2016.

Fountain presents lessons learned from her extensive experience as an internal auditor, internal audit manager, and CAE to help internal auditors understand the challenges, issues, and potential alternative solutions when executing the role.
