about

The book consists of thirteen studies examining different aspects of human life protection in the early stage of its development. The contributions are arranged in three parts. Part I focuses on theoretical problems and examines the main issues of contemporary jurisprudence. The foundation of human rights, different approaches to sovereignty, the relation between law and science, the legitimacy of judicial power, and the nature of legal authority are discussed. Part II presents the issues within the national contexts of the USA, Germany, Austria and Poland. In a wider perspective, Part III examines the issue of the protection of human life in the prenatal phase on three different levels: within the EU, within the European Court of Human Rights case law and the UN system.
Aleksander Stepkowski, member of the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Warsaw, scholar at the universities of Manchester, Oxford, Edinburgh (United Kingdom) and Leuven (Belgium). His research activity concentrates on private and public comparative law and interrelations between philosophy and legal culture.
