Abstract

La VIe République est une revendication quasi concomitante à la mise en place de la constitution du 4 octobre 1958. Depuis cette date, le projet d ’une révision radicale des institutions n 'a cessé de prospérer dans toutes les formations de l’échiquier politique, à droite comme à gauche, amenant successivement la plupart des leaders politiques à afficher, à titre individuel ou partisan, leurs intentions. Les candidats aux présidentielles 2007 ont été sommés de prendre position et d’avancer des propositions, qu’elles soient réformistes ou de rupture. Le débat institutionnel devrait ainsi, selon les commentateurs, être au cœur des prochaines campagnes électorales. Cette émulation de la créativité constitutionnelle, sous les sunlights des médias, n’a guère amélioré la lisibilité des modèles proposés et elle n’a pas davantage permis de dégager un consensus dans la société française sur le vent des réformes souhaitables et souhaitées. C’est donc dans ce contexte d’affaiblissement des institutions de la Ve République, qu’Henry Roussillon et Stéphane Mouton ont eu la très heureuse et opportune idée d’organiser, en avril 2006, un colloque sur “Demain, la VIe République ?” ce qui a permis de dégager, entre les participants, un certain nombre de convergence : une lecture très critique des institutions de la Ve République, l’appel à un changement profond du régime et du système politiques à défaut de justifier le changement de numérotation de la République, la nécessité de ramener le Président de la République au strict rôle arbitral qu’il n’aurait jamais dû cesser d’exercer, enfin le constat que nul ne prétend changer la politique en changeant de constitution. En même temps, quelques lignes de tension ont discrètement sous-tendu les interventions : tensions entre expertise technique et démocratie : la place du savoir expert et la place du citoyen profane ; tensions entre réforme institutionnelle et révolution conceptuelle : ce que l’ingénierie constitutionnelle sait résoudre et ce qui lui échappe ; tensions entre constitutionnalisme et politique : ce que le droit peut résoudre et ce qui résulte des urnes, le fait majoritaire ayant largement hanté les débats.

Abstract

Anthropologists have been appearing as key expert witnesses in native title claims for over 20 years. Until now, however, there has been no theoretically-informed, detailed investigation of how the expert testimony of anthropologists is formed and how it is received by judges. This book examines the structure and habitus of both the field of anthropology and the juridical field and how they have interacted in four cases, including the original hearing in the Mabo case. The analysis of background material has been supplemented by interviews with the key protagonists in each case. This allows the reader a unique, insider’s perspective of the courtroom drama that unfolds in each case. The book asks, given the available ethnographic research, how will the anthropologist reconstruct it in a way that is relevant to the legal doctrine of native title when that doctrine gives a wide leeway for interpretation on the critical questions: what is the relevant grouping, what can be counted as a traditional law and when has there been too much change of tradition? How will such evidence be received by judges who are becoming increasingly sceptical about experts tailoring their evidence to suit the party which called them? This book answers these questions by assuming that there is more at stake here than the mere performance of roles. Rather, there is a complex interaction of distinct social fields each with its own habitus, and individual actors are engaged in an active and constructive agency, however subtle, which the painstaking research for this book uncovers.

Abstract

At a time when increased independence requirements for auditors, legal backing for auditing standards, and increased audit documentation requirements have occurred, this book examines key issues in the market for audit services in Australia. It investigates issues including: the understandability of audit and the state of the audit expectations gap; auditors’ business acumen and industry expertise; the auditors’ use of materiality; whether or not the increasingly prescriptive nature of auditing is creating a distraction from the ‘real’ audit task and stifling auditors’ judgement; whether or not CLERP 9 reforms involving audit partner rotation and restrictions on non-audit service provision are efficient and effective and reactions to the increasing scrutiny of auditors and audit firms by regulators. With its thorough coverage of contemporary issues, this book intersperses the authors’ summaries, interpretations and recommendations with the perceptions, expressed in their own words in order to faithfully convey their candid assessments, of users of audit reports, purchasers and suppliers of the audit product, auditing standard setters and regulators of the audit market.

Abstract

El libro recoge un repertorio de la legislación universitaria española entre los años 1889 y 1939 ordenado cronológicamente y acompañado de un índice de materias.

Abstract

Portuguese cinema in the speech of political power is a dictionary about portuguese cinematografic legislation (1896-1974), since the existence of moving images in Portugal (1896), till 1974, passing through three political regims, wich are the end of Constitutional Monarchy (1896-1910), the First Republic (1910-1926), and The New State (1933-1974). The dictionary contains 123 entries, which are based on six global subjects: (1) The political power and inspective organs (11 entries); (2) The cinema between education and propaganda (12 entries); (3) Criteria, process and organs of censorship (14 entries); (4) The industry, the economic agents and the State (38 entries); (5) The cinematographic show (31 entries); (6) The professional and the sector organs (17 entries). Portuguese cinema in the speech of political power is the first sistematic research about the way as political powers rule the cinematographic activity in Portugal, through a sistematic and continuous source as legislation is, that is understood as a speech through which political power expresses his normative will.

Abstract

Le processus d'élaboration de la législation des villes médiévales est une question rarement abordée en soi jusqu'à présent, contrairement au droit édictal princier et à l'exception notable des villes italiennes où précisément État et cité se sont souvent confondus. Une trentaine de spécialistes, juristes, historiens du droit et historiens du monde urbain, se sont réunis aux Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis pour l'étudier dans une perspective européenne et interdisciplinaire. Les différents stades du processus législatif sont envisagés : l'initiative et la décision politique (situées dans un jeu de concurrence et de collaboration entre pouvoirs), l'idéologie et le discours mis en œuvre, les matières traitées, la confection des actes, leur publication et leur conservation. Une telle étude est essentielle non seulement pour la connaissance des modes de régulation de la vie urbaine, mais aussi pour celle de leur impact sur les campagnes et sur la législation princière. L'espace ainsi couvert comprend la Péninsule ibérique, l'Italie, la France, la Suisse, l'Allemagne, la Belgique, les Pays-Bas et le Luxembourg.

Abstract

In the 1970s the Australian Commonwealth Government and three States, Victoria (1974), New South Wales (1977) and South Australia (1978), passed legislation to protect the built heritage within their jurisdictions. The legislation was primarily a response to two factors: a large number of public protests against the demolition of historic buildings in all Australian states by the 1970s and the influence of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, which the Whitlam Government (1972-75) embraced enthusiastically. The other states, with governments that were more influenced by development interests, were slow to follow the federal lead. &#xD;&#xD;In this study, Sharon Mosler examines heritage issues and conflicts in Adelaide from enactment of the first South Australian Heritage Act in 1978 to its successor in 1993, and also analyses issues leading from that period into the twenty-first century. State legislation introduced by the Labor government of Premier Mike Rann (2002 – present) has affected the built environment significantly since this book began. The Rann government has given the built heritage a low priority in its strategic plan compared to population growth, while the Adelaide City Council has become more balanced in the past decade, although the council too has focussed on increasing Adelaide’s population. The result has been more high-rise buildings at the expense of heritage conservation and historic precincts.

Abstract

The Western and Central Pacific Ocean is home to the largest tuna fishery in the world – around half of the world’s tuna supply – and is a vital economic resource for Pacific island countries. The potential of the Pacific tuna fishery to contribute to economic development in the Pacific island countries is enormous, but will require a cooperative regional strategy to maximise access fees from distant water fishing nations, as well as targeted domestic policy and legislation to encourage local fishing industries. Together with the importance of acting strategically with regard to such a variable resource, the lesson of fisheries management globally is that it is most effective when it takes into consideration social, cultural and political contexts.&#xD;&#xD;Based on an extensive study of six Pacific island states, Capturing Wealth from Tuna maps out the aspirations and limitations of six Pacific island countries and proposes strategies for capturing more wealth from this resource in a sustainable and socially equitable manner.
