    Unsettling Australian Clinical Legal Education
    Porter, A ; Cubillo, E ; Watson, N (Routledge, 2024-01-31)
    This chapter considers some of the dimensions of epistemic violence in Australian clinical legal education. Perhaps because clinical legal education and social change lawyering are viewed as indelibly progressive and ‘in the public interest’, clinical legal education has long escaped the attention of sustained decolonial and anti-racist critique. This chapter seeks to rectify this by providing four critiques of clinical legal education: its failure to consider settler colonialism and its effects; its failure to consider racism and its effects; intellectual nullius; and psychological nullius. Against each of these criticisms, we consider the potential for clinical legal education when Aboriginal sovereignty, advocacy and storytelling is centred. This chapter equally provides a case study specifically focusing upon our own experiences teaching clinical legal education in which we explain our pedagogical and philosophical approach, as well as strategies for unsettling Australian clinical legal education.

    Safeguards for the Future
    Findlay, T ; International Atomic Energy Agency, (T.M.C. Asser Press, 2022)
    Safeguards have evolved as a result of new circumstances, institutions, technologies and practices, including cultural phenomena. This chapter examines safeguards from a historical perspective as the product of a political process that resulted in the negotiation of safeguards instruments. In particular, the chapter addresses the IAEA safeguards from the perspective that adaptation of the legal framework for safeguards is necessary and often difficult. Major change will only occur through a political process, not a legal one, involving Member States of the IAEA. The change will be facilitated through the IAEA Secretariat’s role in strengthening safeguards implementation using the power and responsibilities afforded to it; the advancement of technology and techniques as a vital element of this process; and the non-technological aspects of safeguards, particularly the human element.

    Nuclear Security Diplomacy Beyond Summitry 1
    Findlay, T ; Volders, B ; Sauer, T (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
    This chapter assesses the role of multilateral diplomacy in strengthening nuclear security after the nuclear summit process ends in 2016. Nuclear security diplomacy is taken to mean communications, discussions, and negotiations among states, especially through high-level gatherings of government representatives, and other stakeholders, notably industry and civil society. Diplomacy may, at first glance, seem to be a laughingly fey response to the threat of nuclear terrorism. One of the challenges in ensuring comprehensive nuclear security is the array of institutions, mechanisms, and arrangements that deal with the issue, either at a broad policy level or in more substantive terms. The Council would also likely play a critical role in reacting to a major nuclear terrorism incident. However, both UNGA and the Council have comprehensive agendas that only allow episodic attention to nuclear security and cannot therefore be expected to play a regular, attentive diplomatic role in this field.

    Policies for Active Aging and Their Family-Related Assumptions and Consequences
    Hamilton, M ; Timonen, V ; Craig, L ; Adamson, E ; Daly, M ; Gilbert, N ; Pfau-Effinger, B ; Besharov, D (Oxford University Press, 2023-03-30)
    Abstract Active aging—encouraging greater economic and social productivity of older adults—has become the dominant paradigm in public policies concerning older people in the Western world. This chapter identifies contradictions within the paradigm, and a failure to adequately situate it within the family lives of older people, drawing attention to the relational circumstances that shape opportunities to age actively. The chapter suggests that the active aging paradigm does not adequately recognize the intersections—and contradictions—between active aging policies, family policies, and national work/care regimes. The authors focus on the (lack of) alignment in aspirations pertaining to employment and unpaid work, and their gendered implications. Comparing Australia and Sweden, they conclude that the current employment and family policy settings generally serve to support the active aging agenda of improving labor market participation in later life in Sweden. The Australian case illustrates that encouraging greater economic and social productivity of older adults is problematic if it is inadequately situated within the family lives and life courses of older people. Successfully and sustainably encouraging older people into paid work requires recognition of family contributions as forms of social and economic productivity. Gender equality in economic participation in later life necessitates investment in gender equality earlier in women’s lives, when gendered patterns of economic participation emerge. Lack of alignment in aspirations pertaining to aging policy and family policy has gendered implications, which can undermine the success of active aging policies and cause economic disadvantage to women as they age over the life course.
