Although I did not take part in these projects at the time, I understood the necessity to prepare students for a future in which our societies would become increasingly older due to declining fertility rates and rising life expectancy through which the number of people aged 60 years and over had multiplied sincereaching hundreds of millions worldwide. Accordingly, it was good that there was a growing focus on people in their later life and their way of living, which has ever since led to a lot of research, both practical and theoretical. However, when I was recently confronted personally with the current state of care for the elderly, I realized that there is still a lot to improve, invent, innovate, and discuss when it comes to the way old people in the need of care live, particularly in a society that is ever more individualized, lacking traditional family models in which such care used to take place. That is why we want to dedicate an entire new issue of MONU to a topic that we call "Late Life Urbanism" and which we want to investigate on an architectural level, but on the level of the city too
The Emergence of a New Ius Commune OUP, As the editors of this volume state, right at the beginning of the Introduction, this is a refined presentation of an academic project that has developed progressively over more than a decade. After several publications in Spanish, the This come-of-age version includes, in any case, elements that seem to us clearly novel, such as the ubiquitous emphasis that is now placed on the transformative thrust of the project, the inclusion of contributions intended to provide a more balanced appraisal of regional developments in public law, and a strong concern for accurately conveying what ICCAL is meant or is not meant to be, in light of what seem to be the results of several rounds of debate and criticism.
Formally, the result has the air of an elegant Greek temple. The book is organized in three main parts, preceded by an Introduction, each of them divided into six chapters.
The structure clearly seeks an equilibrium between three pillars: In our view, this way of posing things is a statement in itself: This double face undoubtedly distinguishes this book from others featuring developments in Latin American comparative, constitutional or international law.
This is a book addressed to inform the world about new scholarly and legal developments in Latin America, but also — and foremost— a deeply self-conscious exercise in dworkinian interpretivism: To be responsive to the different dimensions of the book, we will proceed as follows.
First, we will provide a cursory description of the chapters and identify their authors. Second, we will expound and critically assess the self-understandings of the editors about the contours of the ICCAL project the book intends to convey, and about its intellectual and practical aspirations, briefly identifying the reasons why, even in this amended version, it falls short of being fully attractive.
We will close with some brief thoughts about the directions the ICCAL project could take in the future.Puerto Rico (Spanish for "Rich Port"), officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, lit.
