“International Law and E-Waste Trafficking”
Fri 02/03/2018

RESOURCE PERSON:
Ms. Stéphanie Reiche-de Vigan

Resource person:

Ms. Stephanie Reiche-de Vigan is a lecturer at Sorbonne-Assas International Law School and is also an associate professor at Lyon Catholic University. She teaches International Affairs, Global contemporary issues, Comparative Law, International Environmental Law and Sustainable Development Law. Her research focuses on International Law and Comparative Law related to natural resources.

She is the founding member of the University initiative on Climate Change and Resource Efficiency. She received her PhD from Jean Moulin University Lyon III and her LLM from Pantheon-Sorbonne University Paris I.

Course description:

This lecture will address the challenges posed by the transfer of used and waste electrical and electronic equipment (e-waste) from developed to less developed countries to the international rule of law. It will discuss the interrelationship between international environmental law and international maritime law and the need for developing targeted maritime policies to respond to the e-waste issue both at the domestic, regional and international levels. While actions of both export and import countries are necessary to effectively control and prevent the transboundary movements of e-waste, the current focus of international rules is primarily to support capacity building in the countries of import concerned with health and environmental issues related to e-waste management and disposal. It reveals the lack of attention that has been put on the liability of the country of export in controlling seaborne transport and preventing illegal trafficking of e-waste.

The aim of this lecture is to give a broader legal perspective in international law and comparative law to address the problem of electronic waste in general and in the context of Mauritius in particular.

“La deontologie des professions juridiques et judiciaires”
Wed 30/05/2018

RESOURCE PERSON:
Dr Ferdinand Melin-Soucramanien, Univ de Bordeaux et ex-deontologue l’assemblee nationale
Bio profile:

Professeur de droit public à l'Université de Bordeaux depuis vingt ans, auteur de nombreux ouvrages et articles académiques,Ferdinand Mélin-Soucramanien a également été sollicité à de nombreuses reprises afin de conseiller le gouvernement français sur des projets de réforme intéressant les institutions politiques ou le système judiciaire français. Nommé à ces fonctions par le président de la République, il a ainsi notamment appartenu en 2012 à la Commission de rénovation et de déontologie de la vie publique présidée par M. Lionel Jospin, ou encore en 2014 à la Commission de modernisation de l'action publique présidée par M. Jean-Louis Nadal. Il a aussi été le Déontologue de l'Assemblée nationale, chargé de conseiller les députés français et de leur faire respecter le Code de déontologie des députés, de 2014 à 2017.

Course synopsis:

La déontologie des professions juridiques et judiciaires

La déontologie peut se définir comme l'ensemble des règles et des devoirs régissant une profession. Elle revêt donc une dimension éthique et morale qui dépasse le strict cadre des règles juridiques. C'est ce caractère particulier, à mi-chemin entre la règle morale relevant du for intérieur et la règle juridique relevant du commandement extérieur, qui la rend parfois délicate à appréhender et surtout difficile à garantir efficacement. Pourtant, aujourd'hui en France, toutes les professions juridiques et judiciaires se sont dotées d'instruments plus ou moins sophistiqués afin d'insuffler une dimension de contrôle déontologique. Pour certaines professions, comme celle de notaire, ces règles sont anciennes. Pour d'autres, la problématique est apparue plus récemment. Pour toutes, l'enjeu est crucial car, pour ces professions, plus que d'autres, la "conformité déontologique" est essentielle.

L'objectif de cette formation sera donc :

- dans un premier temps, de définir la notion de déontologie et de faire l'inventaire des règles propres aux professions juridiques et judiciaires;

- dans un deuxième temps, de dresser un tableau des mécanismes de contrôle mis en place par certaines professions juridiques et judiciaires en prenant notamment les exemples des magistrats, des avocats, des notaires, ou encore des fonctionnaires participant au système juridique et judiciaire ;

- enfin, dans un dernier temps, de mesurer l'efficacité de ces dispositifs.
