dc.description.abstract In this dissertation, we suggest a new application model of detection and resolving normative conflicts among norms of laws promulgated by the National Assembly of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (NAV). The model includes the proposed Open Document Format (ODF) structure, a RELAX NG schema, an RDF/XML metadata and an ontology for law documents. Legal metadata and ontology creation and management also play an important role in the model. The analytical metadata is established by defining legal components in each norm of LND, connecting to legal objects of the ontology. Reasoning over a set of legal knowledge including metadata and ontology in which SWRL legal rules also are integrated can help users - such as drafters and legislators - detect potential normative conflicts among norms. Additionally, execution of SPAQRL, XQuery queries over a set of metadata in the model can assist legislators to reduce manual jobs while investigating many more LNDs with reduced time and effort. By efficiently detecting inconsistencies among norms, looking for legal components in metadata, the model supports users in finding, overseeing related norms and resolving the normative conflicts of LNDs in the pipeline of verification. Indirectly, the model supports increased efficiency in the enforcement of LNDs. Moreover, a Java and Jena-based prototype is also developed. On balance, the model offers many benefits and would significantly contribute to Vietnam’s E-parliament. However, the model is language-independent. As a consequence, it would not only apply to the nation's system of LNDs, but could also be applied in the assessment of compatibility among LNDs of many countries. en_US
