Item Summary

Title: LWPA 582E-001 Syllabus Ho’oulu-Lahui: To Grow a Nation August 18, 2014 Professor Chang
Authors: Chang, Williamson B.C.
Keywords: Hawaii
Legal History
Issue Date: 18 Aug 2014
Abstract: The course has two broad objectives: First, it will carefully and comprehensively examine the claims that 1) the Kingdom continues to exist as a subject of international law, 2) that the United States lacks sovereignty and jurisdiction over the Hawaiian Islands, and 3) that the United States “occupies” the Hawaiian Islands in contravention of the international law of occupation. The first five weeks of the class will be devoted to examining these issues in depth.
Second, the course will ask and attempt to answer the question “If so, what next?” We will examine such issues as 1) what are the consequences of “occupation?” and 2) what will Hawai’i be like after “occupation?” What will be the rules of citizenship and nationality? Will Hawai’i be better off, economically? How will a de-occupied Hawai’i address important issues and problems faced today: homelessness; the high cost of living and housing; health; prisons; the lack of appropriate jobs; land use and the “ceded lands”; and resource protection-- including food security and international fishing rights? In short, will a de-occupied Hawaii be a better place to live?
