When the Man Child of Revelation 12 rules, he will need a declaration of Human Rights. This work of mine is the most comprehensive declaration of Human Rights that I've found. The UN's declaration is only 8 pages. My declaration explains how every nation of the world can follow Human Rights. This is the initial seed from which I will produce my Building of the Kingdom of God series.

In Legal Aspects of Brexit, Georgetown Law professors Jennifer Hillman and Gary Horlick present an overview of many of the legal issues raised by the United Kingdom's (UK's) decision to withdraw from membership in the EU, with a particular focus on international trade issues. The book is drawn from a first-of-its-kind seminar taught in the fall of 2016 at Georgetown Law. Legal Aspects of Brexit presents an introductory summary of legal issues raised by Brexit followed by the papers written by the students in the seminar covering a wide array of Brexit dilemmas, ranging from the implications for the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, to the potential for investor-state disputes, to the status of EU trade agreements with Canada, Korea and the East African Community, to implications for the World Trade Organization (WTO), to Brexit's effect on everything from human rights, to data privacy, to geographical indications, to Scotland, to financial services, to the English Premier League soccer player and more. Each paper explores what EU law, if any, would remain in place in a post-Brexit UK and what the UK can or should do to fill any holes created in their legal framework, along with an analysis of any new or different obligations placed on the EU or its institutions in a post-Brexit world. <br />The book also contains an extensive roadmap to the many sources of information and analysis about Brexit and its implications for the UK, the EU and the rest of the world.

<em>The First Bilateral Investment Treaties</em> is the first and only history of the U.S. postwar Friendship, Commerce, and Navigation (FCN) treaty program, and focuses on the investment-related provisions of those treaties. The 22 U.S. postwar FCN treaties were the first bilateral investment treaties ever concluded, and nearly all of the core provisions in the modern network of more than 3000 international investment agreements worldwide trace their origin to these FCN treaties. This book explains the original understanding of the language of this vast network of agreements which have been and continue to be the subject of hundreds of international arbitrations and billions of dollars in claims. It is based on a review of some 32,000 pages of negotiating history housed in the National Archives.<br /><br />This book demonstrates that the investment provisions were founded on the New Deal liberalism of the Roosevelt-Truman administrations and were intended to acquire for U.S. companies investing abroad the same protections that foreign investors already received in the United States under the U.S. Constitution. It chronicles the failed U.S. attempt to obtain protection for investment through the proposed International Trade Organization (ITO), providing the first and only history of the investment-related provisions in the ITO Charter. It then shows how the FCN treaties, which dated back to 1776 and originally concerned with establishing trade and maritime relations, were re-conceptualized as investment treaties to provide investment protection bilaterally. This book is also a work of diplomatic history, offering an account of the negotiating history of each of the 22 treaties and describing U.S. negotiating policy and strategy.

<p>This book examines corruption in public procurement in three Member States of the EU, reviewing their different approaches to combating corruption, and the extent to which the transparency principle is applied in their procurement systems. The focus of the work is on the contrast between the unsuccessful procurement legislation of a relatively young Member State (Bulgaria) and its attempt to curb corruption by expanding the scope of application of the transparency principle, and two examples of procurement systems where corruption is limited adequately, without an excess of information procedural requirements (Germany and Austria).</p><br /><br /><p>The book scrutinizes the transparency rules, procurement participants, and responsible institutions in the award of procurements in these countries. It discusses in detail the types of infringements involving corruption as well as their link to infringements of the transparency principle. It compares and examines the systems of control and appeal against a contracting authority's actions within the various legislative schemes, and highlights the legislative weaknesses which fail to reduce corruption. The comparative analysis between the Bulgarian public procurement system and the German and Austrian systems is carried out through detailed research not only with regard to adherence to the transparency principle, but also to the use of other mechanisms to limit corruption, insofar as these solutions are appropriate and could be adapted in other countries currently lacking sufficient anti-corruption measures.</p>

<P><i>Human Rights after Hitler</i> reveals thousands of forgotten US and Allied war crimes prosecutions against Hitler and other Axis war criminals based on a popular movement for justice that stretched from Poland to the Pacific. These cases provide a great foundation for twenty-first-century human rights and accompany the achievements of the Nuremberg trials and postwar conventions. They include indictments of perpetrators of the Holocaust made while the death camps were still operating, which confounds the conventional wisdom that there was no official Allied response to the Holocaust at the time. This history also brings long overdue credit to the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC), which operated during and after World War II.</P><P>From the 1940s until a recent lobbying effort by Plesch and colleagues, the UNWCC’s files were kept out of public view in the UN archives under pressure from the US government. The book answers why the commission and its files were closed and reveals that the lost precedents set by these cases have enormous practical utility for prosecuting war crimes today. They cover US and Allied prosecutions of torture, including “water treatment,” wartime sexual assault, and crimes by foot soldiers who were “just following orders.” Plesch’s book will fascinate anyone with an interest in the history of the Second World War as well as provide ground-breaking revelations for historians and human rights practitioners alike.</P>
