      MBZIBAIN, AURELIAN; Amine, Khadidja (University of Wolverhampton, 2016-01-01)
      Le Bassin du Congo comprend environ 70 % de la couverture forestière de l’Afrique: sur les 530 millions d’hectares du bassin du Congo, 300 millions sont couverts par la forêt. Ces forêts hébergent quelques 30 millions de personnes et fournissent des moyens de subsistance à plus de 75 millions de personnes qui comptent sur les ressources naturelles locales. Bien que la déforestation et la dégradation des forêts soient restées à un niveau faible dans le bassin du Congo, elles ont toutes deux nettement accéléré au cours des dernières années.

    • Book Review: Heritage Tourism Destinations: Preservation, Communication, and Development

      Rahimi, Roya (Annals of Tourism Research, 2016)
      The complex relationships between tourism and heritage are revealed in the tensions between tradition and modernity (Nuryanti, 1996). Heritage tourism has been studied by numerous scholars and practitioners over the past decades from different disciplines. In 21st century heritage destinations are in various forms and functions such as townscapes, rural village or traditional agricultural landscape, leisure landscape, historical trails and routs and have different roles to play for different stakeholders and provides opportunities for visiting individuals, who are privileged to breathe past, present and future at once.
    • Book Review: Robin West and Cynthia Grant Bowman (eds), Research Handbook on Feminist Jurisprudence (Edward Elgar, 2019) ISBN 978 1 78643 968 0 (cased), 544 pp.

      Potocnik, Metka (University of Wolverhampton, 2019-11-29)
      Feminist jurisprudence is unfortunately not an extensively studied subject in law courses in the United Kingdom. Most researchers with extensive careers would struggle with clearly explaining the key schools of thought, authors or concepts in feminist jurisprudence. Arguably, however, all areas of law would greatly benefit from a feminist investigation. This is true for areas, which expressly deal with women issues, but equally important in areas of law, which are written as “gender-neutral.” To dispel some of the mystery around feminist jurisprudence, Edward Elgar has published a much-needed collection of expert views on feminist jurisprudence. Although most contributions offer the United States’ perspective, this research handbook’s rich spread of twenty-six chapters (including the Introduction), represents a welcome addition to jurisprudential literature.

      Potocnik, Metka (University of Wolverhampton, 2019-11-29)
      The time has passed for feminist theories of law to be placed at the back of a jurisprudence book. Equally, experts in international law would benefit greatly by expanding their theoretical approaches and methodologies, to include feminist expertise. In this edited research handbook,1 Edward Elgar introduces a much-needed collection of expert views on feminist engagement with international law, adding to some of the pre-existing literature. 2 With thirty chapters and an Afterword, 3 this edited volume is a welcome addition to the research literature on international law and feminist jurisprudence, to be read by experts and novices alike. For readers not yet familiar with feminist theories, this edited collection offers a glimpse to the possibilities (both theoretical and methodological) that feminist approaches offer in all areas of fragmented international law.

    • D Giannoulopoulos, Improperly Obtained Evidence in Anglo-American and Continental Law

      Glover, Richard (Sweet & Maxwell Ltd, 2020-07-30)
      This book provides a comparative analysis of the exclusion of improperly obtained evidence across a number of legal systems, criss-crossing jurisdictional boundaries in a lively and engaging manner. Giannoulopoulos’s objective is stated clearly from the outset. In the Preface, he invites courts and legislatures within the Anglo-American and Continental legal systems to review, in the light of his comparative analysis and normative conclusions, their national solutions to problems associated with the exclusion of improperly obtained evidence. Importantly, they are further encouraged to ensure that rights considerations are given due weight. The obvious vehicle for the proposed “reinvigoration of the rights thesis” in Europe is the European Court of Human Rights and an important part of the book is concerned with assessing the court’s role in building a rights-based consensus.

    • Foreword to the Special Issue: Women in Law and Criminal Justice: Quo Vadis?

      Potocnik, Metka (Law Research Centre, University of Wolverhampton, 2019-11-28)
      It is my esteemed pleasure to welcome the Special Issue of the Wolverhampton Law Journal (WLJ), which has been prepared in celebration of Women in Law and Criminal Justice. At the start of 2019, the celebrations of the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 began. In April, Wolverhampton Law School hosted the Artwork celebrating the First 100 Years of women in law which has also featured at the Supreme Court and the Royal Courts of Justice. At the same time the Law School organised a PhD Conference under the same theme, where PhD researchers from the West Midlands Legal Doctoral Network shared their findings about the women who have most influenced their areas of the law. In October, the Law Research Centre organised the First 100 Years Colloquium, the report of which is referenced below. In order to continue the celebrations, and with the Law Research Centre’s home journal, we found the unique opportunity to publish select contributions on this theme in this Special Issue.
    • Guest Editor's Introduction

      Hambrook, Glyn (Edinburgh University Press, 2015-10)
      The original objective of this themed issue was to gather reflections on the reception of the work of Charles Baudelaire that in some guise or other departed from standard patterns, and, consequently, to focus on Baudelaire’s reception with reference to particularities rather than paradigms. The call for submissions sought therefore to elicit contributions on the reception and translation of Baudelaire’s work in overlooked and under-frequented places, on topics – those which follow were given by way of example in the call for submissions ‒ involving non-standard cultures and patterns of translation of Baudelaire’s work; the reception of Baudelaire’s work in milieus underexplored or ignored by comparative scholarship; and unfamiliar Baudelaire(s): atypical reception of Baudelaire’s work. The four essays and Afterword that comprise this issue achieve this objective in one way or another, while demonstrating that in order to be deemed non-standard, receptions do not have to take the form of dramatic or radical departures from established models of reception. This introduction will provide a context to the essays by considering firstly the recent and current position of reception studies within the context of comparative literature and secondly developments in the study of the reception of Baudelaire during the last few years. It will conclude with a review of the essays and Afterword individually and in relation to each other.
