Over the past decade, there has been an explosion of litigation at the international and domestic levels concerning consular access for foreign nationals charged with a criminal offence. The issue has complicated relations between countries, with the majority of litigation involving the United States, which has adopted a restrictive view of the consular access obligation. This book brings together for the first time relevant documentary sources on the law of consular access. The book includes significant excerpts alongside commentary on the documents, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. While presenting information on the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, the book presents other sources, including bilateral consular agreements, multilateral treaties, and key court cases from various jurisdictions. Many of these sources are not readily accessible. The Law of Consular Access will be of interest to scholars of international law, human rights, and international relations. It will also be of interest to private and government lawyers, as well as diplomats and consuls.

"Gitty Up" shouted the driver, as he encouraged the laboring horses to pull the ladened "prairie schooner" faster westward across the prairie. In the "prairie schooners" the people were excited and anxious to reach the vast prairie of Nebraska. They wanted to rush to the land, select their free land, and build their homes. Among the settlers on the Nebraska plains were the Author's parents. In this book the reader has a glimpse of their simple home, the care of the livestock on the farm, the planting and harvesting of the crops, the brutal weather, and the challenges of isolation. Every family depended on their horses for survival. Man power combined with horse power with determination resulted in permanent settlements. When tractors began to emerge for farming, then horses retired from field work. Whoa!

Assessing the effectiveness of the North American Agreement on Labour Cooperation (NAALC), this book examines the operation of the core institutions (the Secretariat and National Administrative Offices) over the past seven years. It discusses the main functions of these institutions in hearing public submissions on violations of labour laws and in conducting research and cooperative activities. Based on interview research, the analysis reviews the strengths and weaknesses of the accord to assess its contribution to a common labour relations regime in North America and its impact in creating new transnational communities of actors in government and civil society in the three countries. The NAALC is also compared with the social dimension of the European Union system, and a final assessment is made as to whether the NAALC institutions live up to the promises of their founders and whether these can be a model for labour relations in any future Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) agreement.
