"Sustainable Tourism and Its Discontents: The Case of Honduras" at UC
Berkeley next Wednesday, October 8 from 1-2 pm.
Co-Director Dana Zartner recently had her book Courts, Codes, and
Custom: Legal Tradition and State Policy Toward International Human
Rights and Environmental Law published by Oxford University Press. OUP
describes it as "a novel cultural-institutional theory of legal
tradition to explain state policy toward international human rights and
environmental law." Congratulations, Professor Zartner!
would like to extend a warm welcome to Human Rights Watch consultant
Professor Olivier Bercault. HRW recently published his book “La Plaine
Des Morts” (The Plain of the Dead), a study indicating Habré’s personal
implication in the massive human rights violations in Chad during his
rule. Professor Bercault also served as deputy-head of the Human Rights
Office of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) where
he directed the reporting effort of the UN regarding abuses committed in
this country. Welcome to MAIS, Professor Bercault!
