Publisher: Corporate Copyright
Chaque personne est susceptible de se retrouver un jour confrontée à la Justice. Il est normal de se sentir un peu perdu car le Droit est une chose complexe et la procédure s’apparente souvent à un véritable parcours du combattant. Le langage juridique est, lui-même, pratiquement incompréhensible pour la plupart des gens. Cet ouvrage vous permettra de mieux comprendre les tenants et les aboutissants de cette Justice si lointaine ... - Comment peut-on introduire une action en justice ? - Comment peut-on se défendre lorsque l’on est assigné par une autre personne ? - Quel est le juge compétent pour trancher mon litige ? - Combien de temps faudra-t-il pour obtenir un jugement ? - Puis-je interjeter appel ? - Combien cela va-t-il me coûter ? Ce sont quelques-unes des questions qui sont abordées par l’auteur dans ce guide qui a été spécialement conçu pour les personnes qui ne sont pas juristes. Il a été rédigé en une langue accessible pour tout le monde, celle de tous les jours, celle que la Justice devrait elle-même utiliser quotidiennement pour paraître moins éloignée des préoccupations de chacun. Justice, mode d’emploi est un guide pratique qui décrypte le langage des juristes en expliquant les méandres de la procédure et en levant le voile sur le monde des juges, des avocats, des huissiers.

Mediating International Crises
Author: Jonathan Wilkenfeld, Kathleen Young, David Quinn, Victor Asal
This new book shows how international crises are dangerous episodes that can be destabilizing not only to the actors directly involved but also to the entire international system. Recognizing the primacy of crises as defining moments in international relations, scholars and policy makers alike are increasingly concerned with identifying mechanisms for crisis prevention, management and resolution. Mediating International Crises is the first comprehensive study into one such mechanism that has been used with increasing frequency in the 20th Century: mediation by a third party. This important research attempts to determine whether third party mediation is an effective means of alleviating or managing the turbulent and violent consequences of crises. The authors examine three approaches to mediation: facilitation communication between parties, formulating possible agreements and manipulating the parties through sanctions or rewards. They explore how these mediation approaches affect crisis outcomes through sanctions or rewards The book begins with a thorough discussion of the theoretical literature on mediation, with particular attention paid to the important distinction between crisis management and conflict resolution. The authors then provide empirical analyses of instances of mediation in 20th century international crises, which is supplemented with data derived from simulated negotiation settings with human subjects.
Dignity at Work
Author: Pauline Rennie Peyton
Bullying in the workplace is now a recognised problem, and a cause for major concern. Victims stand to lose their self-esteem, their health and even their careers. Organisations that do not endeavour to put an end to this behaviour lose productivity, profits and their good reputations. Dignity at Work is derived from the author's many years of experience working with organisations of all sizes and at all levels. This book outlines practical guidelines essential to organisations that want to combat bullying in the workplace, and psychologists and professional counsellors working with those organisations. It provides: * the tools to identify bullying behaviour * expertise to create new policies and integrate them into corporate culture * confidence to know when and how to intervene practically and therapeutically * the skills required to know when to seek external help from professional counsellors * psychologists and counsellors with advice on how to transfer their skills to organisations as independent contractors Bullying will no longer be tolerated, and organisations must create environments that do not support mistreatment. This book provides managers, Human Resources staff and professional counsellors with the skills required to be able to recognise when a problem exists, and deal with it effectively.

Western and Arab researchers look at adult education, and discuss how an ecological approach to education, focussing on the cultural traditions and natural environments of communities, can be more useful than education in specialized institutions.
Labor in Norway

This study discusses the many different aspects of judicial independence in Israel. It begins with an historical analysis of the concept of judicial independence in a comparative perspective, emphasizing the conceptual roots of the judiciary in Jewish law. Recent decades have witnessed a marked increase in the role played by the judiciary in society. This general trend is apparent in Israel, where the highly significant social role played by the judiciary has been on the increase for some years. The constitutional role of the judiciary in society is more pronounced in countries where the courts are empowered to review the constitutionality of legislative acts. In Israel the power of judicial review, in decisions of the Supreme Court, has been applied in a number of cases in which legislation of the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, has been set aside. The increasingly prominent role of the judiciary in Israel is further manifested by the frequent recourse to judicial commissions of inquiry, chaired by judges who are often called upon to examine some of the major public controversies.

It’s spring, 1963 in the “Nickel Capital of the World.” Nineteen-year-old Jake McCool is about to undergo a rite of passage—his first shift underground in a hard rock mine. But the Cold War is at its height, and Jake is also about to become a reluctant participant in a bitter interunion battle fueled by the global struggle between two ideologies in the wake of the Second World War. So is his girlfriend, Jo Ann Winters. Together the couple are swept up in a web of intrigue; at its center is a terrible secret that will haunt their relationship for the rest of their lives, as their hometown becomes not only one of the world’s greatest hard rock mining centers, but also the epicenter of the Cold War in North America. In this fast-paced novel set against the little-known historical backdrop of a true-life battle that included vicious beatings, riots, and worse, author Mick Lowe posits a provocative premise: that the U.S. government sponsored a ruthless covert operation to destabilize a strategic community in the heartland of its closest ally, Canada.

Publisher: Nickel Range Trilogy
It s September, 1978 and the 11,700 hard rock miners and smelter and refinery workers of Inco s Sudbury operations face a stark choice: remain on the job without a contract or take seemingly suicidal strike action against a hard-nosed employer that s accumulated a nickel stockpile vast enough to last a year without further production. A fateful choice is made, one that will change the lives of newlyweds Jake and Jo Ann McCool and the Canadian labor movement forever. Against a backdrop of unrelenting winter and swirling changes in social mores, the ensuing struggle triggers epical challenges few could have foreseen. The third and final volume of Mick Lowe s sweeping Nickel Range Trilogy, Wintersong, is working class literature at its best, echoing the great tradition of writers like Upton Sinclair, Theodor Dreiser, Steinbeck and Dos Passos."
In this story of eco-resistance based on actual events in the heart of Canada's Nickel Range, Jake McCool, the injured hardrock miner, returns to work for the International Nickel Company (INCO) but now at its nearby Copper Cliff smelter complex. In no time, Jake finds himself embroiled in a vicious fight over health and safety and, more specifically, over the extreme levels of sulphur dioxide that poison the air in the smelter but also in the entire surrounding area. The fight takes on new dimensions as freelance reporter Foley Gilpin sparks interest at Canada's national daily "Globe & Mail" and as local parliamentarian Harry Wardell smells the collusion between INCO and the highest levels of Ministry of Natural Resources at Queen's Park in Toronto.
