United Nations human rights jurisprudence database launched

The UN Human Rights Office has recently launched a major online database of Treaty Bodies’ case law, which is known as Jurisprudence, http://juris.ohchr.org. It forms as a starting resource of the human rights recommendations and findings issued by various Committees* in their work on individual cases.

The database was developed based on data originally from the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) of Utrecht University School of Law since the mid-1990s.

It contains case law indexed by various categories with search criteria including Region, State, year of publication, subject keywords, sessions and type of decisions.

* The Committees that can receive and consider individual complaints are:

Human Rights Committee (CCPR)
Committee against Torture (CAT)
Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)
Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD)
Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)
Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED)
Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR)
Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

Evidence-based dentistry for the dental hygienist / edited by Julie Frantsve-Hawley.

D 617.6891 E93

Like any other dental professional, dental hygienists must practice evidence-based dentistry (EBD) to provide the best care to their patients, whether it be through scaling and root planing, caries prevention, or patient education. This book is intended as a textbook for dental hygienists to learn the importance of EBD in the practice of dental hygiene as well as how to implement EBD practices and share EBD findings among office staff. As the dental knowledge base evolves and scientific discoveries are made, dental hygienists must understand how to seek out and evaluate findings and, if appropriate, apply them in their clinical practice, and this book provides all the necessary tools to do just that.

New Publications from ISEAS Publishing

Japan’s ASEAN Policy: In Search of Proactive Multilateralism 

Sueo Sudo

The central puzzle in the study of Japanese foreign policy has been why Japan has continued to play a passive role in international affairs, despite its impressive economic and political power. Challenging this central puzzle, the core argument of this study is to present an alternative path for the study of Japanese foreign policy.

Tragic Orphans: Indians in Malaysia 

Carl Vadivella Belle

In 1938, noting that the bulk of the Indian population formed a “landless proletariat” and despairing of the ability of the factionalized Indian community to unite in pursuit of common objectives, activist K.A. Neelakanda Ayer forecast that the fate of Indians in Malaya would be to become “Tragic orphans – of whom India has forgotten and Malaya looks down upon with contempt”.

Institutions and Social Mobilization: The Chinese Education Movement in Malaysia, 1951-2011 

Ang Ming Chee

This book marks a major contribution since the work of Tan Liok Eee (1997) on the Dongjiaozong movement in Malaysia.

Bureaucracy and Development: Reflections from the Indonesian Water Sector 

Diana Suhardiman

The fall of the New Order government in 1998 and the political reform that followed posed substantial challenges for Indonesia’s bureaucracy to continue fulfilling its mandate. This book analyses the process of bureaucratic reform in the irrigation sector.

The Population of Malaysia (Second Edition) 

Saw Swee-Hock

A Prince in a Republic: The Life of Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX of Yogyakarta 

John Monfries

A 14th Century Malay Code of Laws: The Nitisarasamuccaya 

Uli Kozok
