  1. Quality Circles and Human Rights: Tackling the Universalism and Cultural Relativism Divide. [REVIEW]Paresh Kathrani - 2012 - AI and Society 27 (3):369-375.
    The implementation of international human rights law has traditionally been undermined by the dichotomy between universalism and cultural relativism. Some groups regard human rights as more reflective of other culture’s and are unwilling to subscribe to them. One response to this is to enable groups to take co-ownership of human rights. Quality Circles based on institutions and technology, and the collaboration they encourage, provide one such means for doing so. What is required is for states to facilitate rather than undermine (...)

    Social Contract Theory and the International Normative Order: A New Global Ethic?Paresh Kathrani - 2010 - Jurisprudencija: Mokslo darbu žurnalas 119 (1):97-109.
    Although people establish norms that enable them to live together, some of these have to be coupled with a system of enforcement. This conforms to broad social contract theory and can also be applied to the international sphere. The international community is also based on a system of norms. However, unlike the domestic context, there is no overreaching authority to direct states on what they should do. Rather it is left to states themselves to police this framework. However, this has (...)

    Asylum Law or Criminal Law: Blame, Deterrence and the Criminalisation of the Asylum.Paresh Kathrani - 2011 - Jurisprudencija: Mokslo darbu žurnalas 18 (4):1543-1554.
    Although the Refugee Convention 1951 generally provided that contracting states should recognise those who came within its definition as refugees, it did not prescribe how contracting states should determine this in order to enable them to balance this obligation with their national interests. However, evidence from the background and drafting of the Refugee Convention 1951 suggests that the provisions that a contracting states would implement in order to protect its interests would be commensurate with the human rights spirit of the (...)

    Globalisation of Law: The Effect of Globalisation on the Domestic Interpretation of Law.Paresh Kathrani - 2009 - Jurisprudencija: Mokslo darbu žurnalas 116 (2):115-129.
    The law consists of both internal and external rules, but in both cases they regulate the behaviour of the subjects towards each other. This can be viewed from a phenomenological perspective in the sense that people have a drive to make sense of their world, and the rules that are developed essentially enable them to relate to the world in this way. If anything interferes with this drive, then it causes peoples’ existential upset. That is why the state both enforces (...)

    A Decade of Change: A Case for Global Morality, Dialogue and Transnational Trust-Building.Paresh Kathrani - 2009 - Jurisprudencija: Mokslo darbu žurnalas 118 (4):97-104.
    The world has changed in the last few decades. While the enforcement of international issues may once have been undermined by differences in transnational institutions, the onset of globalisation has led to a greater willingness amongst states to cooperate with each other. It is suggested that this could be a positive development for, amongst other things, gradually tackling climate change, global poverty and the greater realisation of human rights. What is needed is a period of reflection of how far we (...)
