In a more open world, the ability to attract investment has become one of the key determinants of economic success or failure.

Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:256

Recent studies of the economic growth and development process have emphasised the critical role of human development. For small developing countries the existence of limited natural resources means that emphasis must be placed on human resources development (HRD) in national development strategy formulation. Through education and training (and health and nutrition), HRD can overcome imbalances in the labour market.

This book explores the approaches to this challenge adopted by governments of smaller states across the world and considers the effectiveness of the particular strategies adopted. It also explores the role of labour migration, particularly the emigration of skilled labour, in this process. The book will be of value to national economic planners, labour market economists, and all those who seek to ensure the successful development of the economies of the worlds smaller states.

Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:142

This publication contains the reports and recommendations of two Commonwealth expert groups considering issues relating to law and information technology. The aim of each group was to identify the essential components of laws needed to deal with technology. The groups sought to ensure that their recommendations took account of the needs of Commonwealth small and developing states. The first part considers the legislative framework necessary for effective e-commerce, in particular considering how best to implement the Model law produced by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Laws (UNCITRAL).

Related issues such as consumer protection, privacy, dispute resolution and general evidence provisions are also examined. The second part examines the specific criminal law issues relating to information technology, with particular regard to the draft Council of Europe Convention on Cyber-crime. The report reviews the substantive offences necessary to combat computer and computer-related criminal activity and gives detailed consideration to procedural issues such as search and seizure powers, production and preservation orders and the interception of electronic communications. Consideration is also given to international co-operation relating to computer crime and other related issues.
