The Workerant

In the unfolding drama of work in the digital age, new circumstance demands new language. Gig economy, on-demand work, the sharing economy, precarious work, automation, zero-hour contracts, outsourcing, workfare. Whilst the entire stage set changes, the central character of the drama remains. The worker. If this indicates both a resilience yet a revisionism of the worker today, there is the need to probe the worker subject of the new economies through new ones. Thus here is the workerant.

Заявление Министерства иностранных дел Российской Федерации

27 июля Конгресс США завершил процедуру голосования по новому закону, ужесточающему санкции в отношении России. Это еще раз подтверждает крайнюю агрессивность Соединенных Штатов в международных делах. Прикрываясь своей «исключительностью», США высокомерно игнорируют позиции и интересы других государств.

Symposium: A federal-common-law approach to corporate liability under the Alien Tort Statute

Enacted as part of the Judiciary Act of 1789, the Alien Tort Statute provides: “The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of any civil action by an alien for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.” Despite its Founding-era provenance, the ATS lay largely dormant until 1980, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit held in Filartiga v. Pena-Irala that the statute authorized a Paraguayan national to bring a civil damages suit against a former Paraguayan police officer based on allegations of torture. The Supreme Court has construed the statute only twice since then – first in 2003 in Sosa v. Alvarez-Machain, and again in 2013 in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. (“Kiobel II”). The court will get its third opportunity this term, when it considers Jesner v. Arab Bank.

Почему так трудно серьезно относиться к заявлениям демократов о России

Демократов очень раздражает тот факт, что республиканцы не разделяют их негодование по поводу набирающего обороты скандала вокруг связей Трампа и России. Симпатия президента к Владимиру Путину, то рвение, с которым его сын был готов принять потенциальную помощь от России в период предвыборной кампании 2016 года, и вопросы о том, могли ли члены команды Трампа вступить в сговор с Россией, чтобы подорвать позиции Хиллари Клинтон, заставляют демократов говорить об импичменте и даже о государственной измене.
