1. O'Loughlin, Elizabeth Alice. International Law and Constitutional Reform: A Case Study of the 2010 Constitution of Kenya.

Degree: 2018, University of Manchester

This thesis explores the function of international law in constitutional reform in post- independence Kenya. International law has played a critical role in the nation’s constitutional review process that culminated in a new constitution in 2010. It has also determined much of the content of the new document. This thesis argues that injecting international norms into the constitutional order services the emancipation of the Kenyan legal system. The application of international law and standards in the Kenyan constitutional order helps emancipate the law from the legacy that colonialism left upon the legal system. In support of this central claim, the thesis first addresses the role of international law in the design and reform of the new constitution and the new judiciary. It disputes concerns about the ‘hegemonic’ or ‘homogenising’ force of international law. Both the constitutional and judicial review process, and the assimilation of international norms into the document, were adapted in order to respond to the nuanced demands of the Kenyan state. The thesis then turns its attention to the application of these norms in the Kenyan courts. It is posited that the domestic judiciary indigenises and hybridises international norms in a way that unlocks the counter-hegemonic potential of international law. Advisors/Committee Members: D'ASPREMONT, JEAN J, Thornhill, Christopher, D'Aspremont, Jean.

2. Calabria, Carina Rodrigues De araújo. The efficacy of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights: A Socio-legal study based on the jurisprudence of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights concerning Amnesty Laws, Indigenous Rights, and Rights of Detainees.

Degree: 2018, University of Manchester

This study intends to perform a reappraisal of the efficacy of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. To this end, the thesis is structured around three fundamental questions that express the main objectives of this inquiry: (i) How should we account for the efficacy of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and its decisions as they impact the human rights regime and normative, institutional and social structures of global society? (ii) To what degree has the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and its aggregate jurisprudence contributed to the process of concretisation of human rights norms? (iii) Has the Inter-American Court and its decisions contributed to the redress of victims of human rights violations in the fields of amnesty laws, indigenous rights and rights of detainees? In order to provide a solid response to these questions, this study carries out a comprehensive empirical analysis of the efficacy of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights jurisprudence on amnesty laws, indigenous rights, and the rights of detainees. Assuming a victim-centred point of observation, this analysis will consider multiple dimensions of global society. The principle contributions of this thesis are two-fold: (i) the advancement of a model of “efficacy chain†to support comprehensive sociological and legal analysis of international court’s efficacy and (ii) a revision, empirical supported, of the effects of decisions of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Advisors/Committee Members: D'ASPREMONT, JEAN J, Thornhill, Christopher, D'Aspremont, Jean.
