Law and Global Health

Show Summary Details


This book is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. This book, the sixteenth volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the scholarship examining the relationship between global health and the law. Covering a wide range of areas from all over the world, chapters in the volume look at areas of human rights, vulnerable populations, ethical issues, legal responses, and governance.

Keywords: legal thought; legal argument; legal theory; legal practice; legal issues; human rights; vulnerable populations; ethical issues; legal responses; governance
