Public Health Crisis Management And Criminal Liability Of Governments

Michael Bohlander Bloomsbury Publishing

This book addresses potential avenues of criminal liability for public health crisis management in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, under national and international criminal law, especially for causing death and bodily harm. The national case studies are geographically representative and follow a common research grid. Each national case study is prefaced by an overview of the detection and subsequent spread of the pandemic in the country concerned. The relevant legal and constitutional frameworks that governed the government and corporate conduct in the face of the pandemic are also discussed, followed by the consideration of forms of criminal liability. Government responses to the COVID-19 pandemic differed vastly in terms of both the choice of strategies adopted (herd immunity, test-and-trace, lockdown, etc) and the quality and speed of government implementation of those strategies and associated interventions. Both factors impacted the number of infections and casualties. It is therefore appropriate to consider forms of criminal liability for failure of individual members of government, including specific public authorities, to act to the best of their abilities, as timely as possible, and in accordance with expert advice.

Social Policy For Effective Practice

Rosemary Kennedy Chapin Taylor & Francis

Social Policy for Effective Practice: A Strengths Approach sharpens students' awareness of social welfare policy and offers a considerable array of resources and knowledge foundations to both understand and thrive within a continually evolving policy landscape. Throughout the text, the authors tell the stories of social workers who impact policy, incorporate frameworks for policy analysis, center social work values and strengths principles, and integrate the series' interactive and downloadable cases to demonstrate policy's relevance and application to practice settings and situations in concrete ways. Students may use the text as an introduction to social policy, a tool for deeper examination of policy topics, and as a lifelong companion for their policy-relevant practice. Now in its sixth edition, the textbook is fully updated to reflect substantial changes in policy arenas such as health care, family economic support, immigration and asylum, criminal justice, housing, reproductive rights, substance use disorder, mental health treatment, and childcare, as well as the implications of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. With additional support and extensions available at, Social Policy for Effective Practice makes policy relevant, accessible, and meaningful for social work students and is a perfect complement to undergraduate and graduate courses on social policy and practice.

It Takes A Counter Revolution

Larry Klayman Esq.

With a title that again satirically mocks It Takes a Village by Hillary Clinton, It Takes a Counter-Revolution: Wake Up America! is the sequel to It Takes a Revolution: Forget the Scandal Industry!, as the nation has now been wholly taken over by the radical left. Like Revolution, this book details how our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government have become thoroughly corrupt and failed the citizenry, but offers new and more drastic solutions given the deepening crises that have—in the last year alone—enmeshed the republic in a march to socialism, communism, atheism, and godless radical leftist ideologies of all types. Emphasizing again that Americans must turn away from the “scandal industry” of the cable news networks, which enrich themselves by magnifying crises—if not creating mass panic to boost ratings and advertising dollars—the author Larry Klayman, the founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, now advocates for declaring independence from our current government, which he chronicles as terminally ill, after experiencing and suffering the corrosive, destructive effects of the Biden-Harris regime. Quoting Founding Fathers like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, Klayman argues that the people must harken back to July 4, 1776, when under the laws of nature and Nature’s God—rather than the laws of the state—the colonies, faced with a king far less harmful than our present rulers, were left with no choice but to declare and form a new nation. What we now need, Klayman argues, is not a new nation, but a new government, with new righteous leaders and new political parties, offering an alternative to the citizenry over what now rules over them in a virtual leftist dictatorship, with little to no sincere and honest Republican opposition. This work is a call to arms during these times of crises, when government deceit, exploitation, corruption, and dictatorial control over the people have created a virtual noose around our collective necks. The overriding message of It Takes a Counter-Revolution: Wake Up America! is that Americans must stop wishfully hoping for the best, get up off of the couch, take calculated risks, and actively join the counter-revolution—albeit a peaceful and legal one—to restore the liberty that once made our nation great. Our continued existence as a once God-fearing and free republic now hangs in the balance, with no time to lose!

Routledge Handbook On The Green New Deal

Kyla Tienhaara Taylor & Francis

In recent years, the Green New Deal has moved from relative obscurity to front and centre of policy discussions and public debates about how to respond to the climate crisis. It has been credited with radically changing the nature of the conversation on climate change and with re-energizing the environmental movement at a critical time. All Green New Deal proposals share an emphasis on the need for governments (rather than markets) to lead the energy transition. However, they differ in other respects. This Handbook analyses the fundamentals underlying all Green New Deals as well as exploring national and regional variations. It is divided into three parts. The first part examines the political economy of the Green New Deal focussing not just on how proposals will be costed but also on opportunities for a fundamental transformation of both national economies and the global economic system. The second part explores issues of justice, which are central to many Green New Deal proposals, including Indigenous rights, racial and gender equity, and justice for the Global South. In the third part, authors detail case studies of Green New Deal proposals and plans at the local, national, and regional level. This book will be an invaluable research and reference volume for students and scholars in economics, politics, sociology, geography, and environmental studies. It should also be of interest to those actively involved in climate and environmental policymaking.
