Telecommunications law under the light of convergence

Telecommunication is one of the most important parts of a country’s economy. It connects the world and is a gigantic growing industry. When dealing with telecommunications law, especially in terms of regulation of competition, generally two main ideas confront. On the one hand free market proponents are to be found. They claim that the absence of regulation would initiate the outcome of manifold telecommunications products at efficiently low prices. On the other hand there is asked for even more intervention and regulation with the argument to protect consumers against consolidation and monopoly. As telecommunications law is uniquely volatile in terms of political, economical and technological matters, the aforementioned question is constantly being raised. Over and above the question of the regulation in competition terms, two other major crunch issues are influencing the regulation and legislation of the telecommunications law: liberalisation of the markets and the convergence of the media. This bock will analyse and compare the current situation of the telecommunications law and market on the two examples of the German and the South African legislation.

Regulation and Entry into Telecommunications Markets

This book examines competition and regulation in the liberalized telecommunications markets, filling the gap between the existing economic literature on competition and the real-life application of theory to policy. Paul de Bijl and Martin Peitz analyse a broad range of market constellations, in particular the hot topic of access price regulation in asymmetric markets, and derive from this their various policy recommendations. This book is a valuable resource for academics, regulators and telecommunications professionals, and is accompanied by extensive simulation programs devised by the authors.
An Introduction to Competition Law An Introduction to Competition Law Новинка

An Introduction to Competition Law

Competition law is a subject of central importance. An accessible introduction to this legal field is thus indispensable for students and practitioners alike. This book is intended to serve as a first acquaintance with competition law and is written in particular for students who intend to study a foundation course in competition law. The current competition law in the UK consists of two main levels: EC competition law and UK competition law. In this introduction both levels are covered, along with an abbreviated introduction to the EC rules on state aids. An important function of this book is to provide an insight into the combined system of UK and EC competition law. Therefore, for the three main subjects (the prohibition of cartels, the prohibition of the abuse of a position of dominance and the supervision of concentrations (mergers and acquisitions) extensive examples, drawn from European and UK practice, have been provided. These examples are then used in the explanation of the general principles, taking into account the changes as a result of the recent introduction of Regulation 1/2003. With this approach, the book aims to reach a broad range of readers: students, teachers in further and higher education, officials and practising lawyers who are not usually faced with competition law issues in their everyday working lives. Extra information has also been included in the footnotes, indicating references to the more specialised literature.
EC Competition Law Procedure and European Convention on Human Rights EC Competition Law Procedure and European Convention on Human Rights Новинка

EC Competition Law Procedure and European Convention on Human Rights

This book is an attempt to explore the interrelationship between the European Community competition law procedure and the European Convention on Human Rights. Specifically, the book assesses the overall compliance of the framework and procedure for the enforcement of competition law in the European Community with the norms and case law of the European Convention on Human Rights. Though the European Community is not a party to the Convention, the Member States of the Community who are saddled with the responsibility of enforcing the Community's decisions against business undertakings in the field of competition law, are all parties to the Convention. If the procedure for arriving at those decisions is not compliant with the Convention, to what extent then could these Member States assist in enforcing sanctions in keeping with their obligations under Community law, and still operate within their obligations under the Convention. This book tries to explore this question, and in general is concerned with the unusual subject of human rights protection for corporations in corporate law. It calls for a major change to the way competition law is enforced in the European Community.
The German Roots of the European Community's Cartel Regulation The German Roots of the European Community's Cartel Regulation Новинка

The German Roots of the European Community's Cartel Regulation

Competition is an immanent element of the market and in most market economies there exist competition regulation schemes, with their refined set of means and objectives. European competition policy is often referred to as the 'eminence grise' of common policies. This book aims at discovering the German roots of this policy, focusing on cartel regulation. The book first analyses the concept and types of restrictive agreements and examines how cartels are formed (or dissolved). Then Post-World War One Germany is viewed from the perspective of how this period influenced economic thoughts of that time. Afterwards, the competition regulation ideas of Robert Liefmann, the most active Freiburg professor of the 1920s are introduced. A detailed insight into the Freiburg School's thoughts on the market, state, competition and its regulation is also provided and the respective American theoretical knowledge is evoked in parallel. The relevant article of the 1957 Treaty of Rome establishing the European Economic Community is discussed in comparison to the development of German cartel regulation from the end of World War Two to the birth and application of the 1957 competition law of Germany.

EU Succession: A Commentary

The European Union Succession Regulation No 650/2012 entered into force on 17 August 2015 covering all successions in European Union Members States (with the exception of Denmark, the United Kingdom and Ireland). The Regulation comprehensively covers the substantive succession law as well as the specific procedural law and the law concerning recognition and enforcement of the relevant judicial awards. The Regulation applies to ''cross-border“ succession i.e. cases where the citizen of one Member State died in another Member State where he or she owned movable or immovable assets. Based on the Regulation, the applicable law now follows uniform rules, meaning the historic legal fragmentation within Europe will be eliminated in the future. This magisterial new text offers a comprehensive analysis of the new regulation, providing an authoritative guide to the new European succession framework.

Does European Constitutional Competition Law Exist? Does European Constitutional Competition Law Exist? Новинка

Does European Constitutional Competition Law Exist?

This book discusses the status of the core European competition rules and principles. In the absence of a formal constitution, we assess whether the Treaties competition provisions, as interpreted by the Court of Justice, are of a constitutional nature and their significance vis-a-vis other areas of law. Competition law provisions are usually not constitutional in nature, why is this not the case in the EU legal system? What are the historical and functional reasons for this? Should a distinction be made between TFEU provisions and secondary legislation? What has been the role of the Court of Justice, the Commission and the courts in this unique constitutionalization process? The role of the judiciary in the competition law system raises constitutional issues. However, in the context of the constitutional pluralism described in this paper, the national courts have to accept that they compete with other European institutions in the interpretation and enforcement of the law. Finally, we consider the impact of the amendments introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon in the competition law system: does this amount to a downgrading of this rules within the European constitutional order?

Competition Laws as a Social Institution

This study is aimed at exploring the competition law as a social institution in Thailand, which is to examine specifically why competition laws in general have been a misery but telecommunications regulations have been a blessing despite their very same competition principles. With a normative view, it has been usually explained that Thai competition laws are in general vague and out-of-date, compared to telecom regulations which have more regulatory details and up-to-date. This explanation lacks merit because competition laws are actually in its early life as well as telecommunications laws. With a sociological view, this dissertation offers an explanation to why the telecommunications authority has been able to give effect to laws while competition authority has nullified them.

SECTOR SPECIFIC REGULATION IN THE TELECOMMUNICATION MARKET SECTOR SPECIFIC REGULATION IN THE TELECOMMUNICATION MARKET Новинка

SECTOR SPECIFIC REGULATION IN THE TELECOMMUNICATION MARKET

In almost all countries worldwide the telecommunication sector was characterized by state owned monopolies, and supplying telecommunication services was understood as a public duty. In the eighties of the last century, most countries began to liberalize their telecommunication market and try to open it up for competition. The establishment of competition in a former monopolized sector can be only successful by taking specific network related features into account. This book deals with the establishment of competition in the telecommunication market taking into account the so-called “essential facilities doctrine”. This doctrine was developed from the U.S. American anti-trust law and is a helpful instrument to ensure access, under specific circumstances, by new competitors to facilities which are controlled by a market-dominating operator. The author specifically examinated the implemenatation of such doctrine in the European, German and South African Law.

Competition law issues facing the Australian banking sector

The global financial crisis has greatly increased the need for improved regulation and enforcement in relation to banking and financial markets, including in respect of ‘competition’ regulation and enforcement. This book considers some of the issues that the crisis raised for the Australian banking sector (with a focus on Australian bank merger reviews). It examines the impact of the ‘rescue packages’ and the whether they served as threats to competition law and policy.

Some comparisons are also made with key overseas jurisdictions, notably the US, the EU and the UK.
Competition and Employment in Telecommunications Industry in Tanzania Competition and Employment in Telecommunications Industry in Tanzania Новинка

Competition and Employment in Telecommunications Industry in Tanzania

In the past few years, the use of telecommunications services has shown an increasing trend and the number of companies investing in this industry has also increased in Tanzania because of liberalization policies in the 1990s. This has led to an increase in competition in this industry and we expect an increase in the level of employment if the industry in competitive. This work seeks to answer the question: "Does increase in competition translate into increase in employment in telecommunications industry in Tanzania?". Only a few individuals have ventured in this subject of telecommunications industry but no one has written anything on the effect of competition in this industry in Tanzania on the labor market (specifically net employment effect). Therefore, this book provides the findings on whether competition has a not positive effect on employment in the telecommunications industry in this country. The use of panel data over seventeen years and controlling for fixed effects in the model provide reliable results. The analysis should be able to shed light on this subject and useful to professionals in Telecommunications Industry and the Government of Tanzania in policy making.

The Brussels 1 Regulation 44/2001

On 1st March 2003, the Brussels I- Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 of 22nd December, 2001 on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgements in Civil and Commercial Matters (Judgment Regulation) became the cornerstone of the European civil procedural law.

The editors are all well-known German law professors.
Global Competition Law and Economics Global Competition Law and Economics Новинка

Global Competition Law and Economics

Modern antitrust law is global antitrust law. Markets are becoming increasingly global, or at least multinational. Mergers between large corporations must typically get approval in both the United States and in the EU, and other nations too. Cartels in one nation affect supply in others, and countries are increasingly entering into treaties with each other about the content or enforcement of competition laws. Thus, businesspeople, lawyers, and lawmakers can no longer content themselves with understanding only the antitrust and competition law of their home country. Modern antitrust law also differs from traditional antitrust law in that it now reflects the dominance of the economic model of analysing antitrust and competition policy. Against this background, this new casebook represents the first comprehensive effort to examine US and EC competition law cases and decisions within a common analytical framework strongly based on economic theory. It is an innovative casebook addressed to all students, not only from the US and Europe, but also from all jurisdictions having competition laws, providing an in-depth analysis of the two major global antitrust regimes in the world, and a summary of the parallel antitrust laws elsewhere in the world. As such it will also serve as a useful reference for practitioners, competition officials, and policy-makers interested in competition law.
The Restriction of IPRs by EU Competition Rules The Restriction of IPRs by EU Competition Rules Новинка

The Restriction of IPRs by EU Competition Rules

Being the two different branches of Law; the Intellectual Property and Competition Law are closely related with each other thanks to the developing world-wide markets. Both serving to amelioration of the global economy and innovation, a possible conflict might occur simply because of their nature. While Intellectual Property rights bestow the right holder a "monopoly" over his right, Competition rules intervene to the right holder's monopoly in order to protect and balance the competition market. The important element is regulating and drawing the line to restrict IPRs. To maintain the free-market and free-trade in the European Union, this balance between the Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Rules is certainly crucial. In cases of IPRs being scrutinized under EU Competition Rules, the Exhaustion of Rights principle came out as a protection measure. Therefore this research examines the interactions of Competition and Intellectual Property Law and the scope of Competition Policy to be applied on the IPRs along with the case-law in the European Union and the Exhaustion of Rights principle.

The Regulation of the State in Competitive Markets in the EU

This book looks at the changing role and nature of the regulation of State intervention in the liberalised and privatised markets of the European Union. It examines how the traditional role of the State is now challenged by European Union law, and the implications for traditional public services provided by the State. For the first time in an academic work, the book brings together the interaction of the Internal Market and the Competition rules of the European Union when they are applied to State economic activity. Individual chapters examine specific rules which address squarely the permissible role of State activity in competitive markets, for example an examination of the State aid rules, the rules in Article 86 EC regulating State monopolies and the controversial application of Articles 81 and 82 EC to the State. Other chapters examine the processes of privatisation and liberalisation with case studies on the postal sector, utilities and telecommunications.

EC Competition Law EC Competition Law Новинка

EC Competition Law

This book, co-written by a team of European competition law specialists, offers critical perspectives on the whole range of issues in EC competition law. The book has two distinctive features: the first is that unlike similar works which present the law from either an enforcement agency or practitioner perspective in a fairly conventional manner, this work offers fresh, critical reflections on the state of the law. The second is that the authors are young academics, practitioners and administrators who have worked in the relevant fields and who are relatively new "voices" in the competition law literature. Drawn from diverse jurisdictions and professional backgrounds the authors bring a distinctively "European" feel (for instance not drawing exclusively on English language literature), and manage to introduce debates that have been taking place in the non-English language world, thereby assisting a more comprehensive dialogue in this field. The diversity in their professional backgrounds means that each chapter adopts a different perspective, with some chapters focusing on practical solutions to problems, and others exploring more general theoretical questions. The textbook-like structure places the issues in their appropriate contexts and ensures that readers see how the discussion in each chapter links with the body of law as a whole. The book is aimed at academic lawyers and practitioners, complementing existing textbooks and allowing the reader to extend his or her understanding of the subject and provide a quick source of reference to the main doctrinal debates on the subject, and offer fresh perspectives on the topics covered. The impact of EC competition law beyond Europe also means that this book will appeal to lawyers in the US, Australia, Canada and beyond.

Competition Law in India and Its Neighbouring Jurisdiction

Increased competition- internal and external helps those who are strong enough to benefit from the new opportunities. Competition is an evasive term, and its understanding differs depending on the context. The basic purpose of competition law is to promote competition through the control of restrictive business practices. While competition laws vary from nation to nation, there are certain core provisions underpinning nearly all competition law regimes. The economic milieu, which led to the enactment of the Act, was characterized by multiple factors, the major ones being the obligations cast by the World Trade Organization (‘WTO’) agreements. This book examines the contours of a competition law, with a brief consideration of regulatory policies in three countries namely India, China and Pakistan. It concludes with a discussion on need of International cooperation in order to develop a healthy and dynamic competition culture.

Future of Leniency

Nowadays in competition law, the detection of cartels and collusive behavior is as important as the effectiveness of the legal and financial consequences on such behavior. The main questions in this study are, how competition agencies can prepare themselves for a system that allows sharing of information related to a leniency proceeding to private parties (for private enforcement), without losing any attractiveness of their leniency programme and how a European Leniency System can be build up in a most effective way. Moreover, a future European “One- Stop-System” is discussed and an outlook given.

Ne Bis in Idem in EU Law

Questions of the application and interpretation of the ne bis in idem principle in EU law continue to surface in the case law of different European courts.

The development of the ne bis in idem principle in the EU legal order illustrate the difficulty of reconciling pluralism with the need for doctrinal coherence, and highlights the tensions between the requirements of effectiveness and the protection of fundamental rights in EU law. The ne bis in idem principle is a 'litmus test' of fundamental rights protection in the EU. This book explores the principle, and the way the Court of Justice of the European Union has interpreted it, in the context of competition law and the areas of freedom, security and justice, human rights law and tax law.

The Struggle for European Private Law: A Critique of Codification The Struggle for European Private Law: A Critique of Codification Новинка

The Struggle for European Private Law: A Critique of Codification

The European codification project has rapidly gathered pace since the turn of the century. This monograph considers the codification project in light of a series of broader analytical frameworks – comparative, historical and constitutional – which make modern codification phenomena intelligible. This new reading across fields renders the European codification project (currently being promoted through the Common Frame of Reference and the Optional Sales Law Code proposal) vulnerable to constitutionally-grounded criticism, traceable to normative considerations of private law authority and legitimacy. Arguing that modern codification phenomena are more complex than positivist, socio-legal and historical approaches have suggested over the past two centuries, the book stages a pathbreaking method of analysis of the law-discourse (nomos-centred) which questions at once the reduction of private law to legislation and of law to power and, on this basis, redefines the ways in which to counter law’s disintegration and crisis in the context of Europeanisation. Professor Niglia reconstructs the European codification project as a complex structure of government-in-the-making that embodies a set of contingent world views, excludes alternatives, challenges the plurality of private laws and entrenches conflicts that pertain not only to form (codification, de-codification, recodification) but also to dilemmas implicated in determining the substantive orientation of European private law. The book investigates the position of the codifiers and their discontents in the shadow of the codification strategy pursued by the European Commission – noting a new turn in the struggle over the configuration of private law which has taken place since the Savigny-Thibaut dispute of 1814 which this book critically revisits exactly two centuries later. This monograph is particularly aimed at readers interested in exploring the complexities, and interconnections, of the supposedly separate realms of comparative law, European law, private law, legal history, constitutional law, sociology of law and, last but not least, legal theory and jurisprudence.
The Unitary EU Patent System The Unitary EU Patent System Новинка

The Unitary EU Patent System

The purpose of this book is to explore the key substantive, methodological, and institutional issues raised by the proposed unitary EU patent system contained in EU Regulations 1257/2012 and 1260/2012 and the Unified Patent Court Agreement 2013. The originality of this work lies in its individual contributions and uniquely broad approach, taking six different (historical, constitutional, international, competition, institutional and forward-looking) perspectives on the proposed patent system. This means that the book offers a multi-authored and all round legal appraisal of the proposed unitary system from experts in patent law, EU constitutional law, private international law, and competition law, as well as leading figures from the worlds of legal practice, the bench, and the European Patent Office. The unitary patent system raises issues of foundational importance in the fields of patent and intellectual property law, EU law and legal harmonization, which it is the purpose of the book to engage with. This is a work which will enjoy wide and enduring interest among academics, policy makers and decision makers/practitioners working in patent law, intellectual property law, legal harmonization, and EU law.
The Application of EC Competition Law in the Maritime Transport Sector The Application of EC Competition Law in the Maritime Transport Sector Новинка

The Application of EC Competition Law in the Maritime Transport Sector

This book explores the possible changes in the way that liner shipping takes place, in consequence of the removal of the EU Block Exemption Regulation on Liner Conferences. It is expected that some changes would have to be made, in particular concerning collusive practices that might no longer be exempted, and would therefore fall under the EU competition law rules as found in the Treaty. Since it is an International Maritime Law book, it also focuses on the interaction of EU Law principles with international maritime law and current maritime trading practices, and why non EU shipping companies may need to take note of any such new development in the EU if they trade in any way which affects the EU market, or trade on EU routes. The book tries to look ahead in this regard, since such a move is in line with the EU's practice of increasing the application of competition law to different markets across Europe.

Among the topics dealt with – apart from ‘the accession issue’ – are questions related to the enforcement of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, human rights as general principles of law, specific issues like the ‘Double Jeopardy Clause’ in relation to Swedish tax law, horizontal effect or so-called ‘Drittwirkung’ of human rights and the increased role of judicial and constitutional review in Swedish courts. The book should be of value to any reader with an interest in such matters.

Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies: 2011-2012: Volume 14

The Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies provides a forum for the scrutiny of significant issues in EU Law, the law of the European Convention on Human Rights, and Comparative Law with a 'European' dimension, and particularly those issues which have come to the fore during the year preceding publication. The contributions appearing in the collection are commissioned by the Centre for European Legal Studies (CELS) Cambridge, a research centre in the Law Faculty of the University of Cambridge specialising in European legal issues. The papers presented are at the cutting edge of the fields which they address, and reflect the views of recognised experts drawn from the University world, legal practice, and the institutions of both the EU and its Member States. Inclusion of the comparative dimension brings a fresh perspective to the study of European law, and highlights the effects of globalisation of the law more generally, and the resulting cross fertilisation of norms and ideas that has occurred among previously sovereign and separate legal orders. The Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies is an invaluable resource for those wishing to keep pace with legal developments in the fast moving world of European integration.
The Abuse of Dominant Position and IPRs in The EU The Abuse of Dominant Position and IPRs in The EU Новинка

The Abuse of Dominant Position and IPRs in The EU

In relationship between intellectual property rights and competition law the issue has always been whether they are fundamentally in conflict or they are means to the same end. After many opposing views it is now considered to be generally accepted that they both ultimately pursue the promotion of consumer welfare. The abuse of dominant position as defined in Article 102 of TFEU has several conflicting points with the traditional understanding of intellectual property. The Commission and the ECJ, through their case-law attempted to balance the conflicting claims of the statutory monopoly granted under IP law with competition law concerns about the exclusionary effects of the IP monopoly. Dusko Martic attempts to put a clearer perspective on the issues that implicate very essence of competition law and IPRs.

The Application of Competition Law to Vietnam’s State Monopolies The Application of Competition Law to Vietnam’s State Monopolies Новинка

The Application of Competition Law to Vietnam’s State Monopolies

Unlike other countries, monopolistic entities in Vietnam - mostly state firms - were established by administrative decisions. They are criticised for having detrimental effects on competition and undermining a healthy environment for doing business. This book explores that the application of competition rules to state monopolies is problematic. This is reflected in the poor enforcement of competition law and the limited intervention of the competition authority in cases involving state monopolies. This book concludes that state monopolies exist as an inevitable trend to support the political determination of Vietnam’s Communist Party. This, however, facilitates the ability of state monopolies to engage in monopolistic behaviour and creates obstacles for the application of competition law in Vietnam. This book suggests that Vietnam’s competition authorities should be reformed to become more independent and accountable. There should be a number of modifications with regard to current anti-monopoly provisions. Finally, consideration of ‘non law-matter’ issues will be another factor contributing to the effective application of competition law to state monopolies.

Weapons Under International Human Rights Law Weapons Under International Human Rights Law Новинка

Weapons Under International Human Rights Law

International human rights law offers an overarching international legal framework to help determine the legality of the use of any weapon, as well as its lawful supply. It governs acts of States and non-State actors alike. In doing so, human rights law embraces international humanitarian law regulation of the use of weapons in armed conflict and disarmament law, as well as international criminal justice standards. In situations of law enforcement (such as counterpiracy, prisons, ordinary policing, riot control, and many peace operations), human rights law is the primary legal frame of reference above domestic criminal law. This important and timely book draws on all aspects of international weapons law and proposes a new view on international law governing weapons. Also included is a specific discussion on armed drones and cyberattacks, two highly topical issues in international law and international relations.
EU Environmental Crime and Punishment EU Environmental Crime and Punishment Новинка

EU Environmental Crime and Punishment

Environmental crimes often have a transnational aspect and constitute a serious and growing problem that needs to be tackled at European level. Recent developments under the Lisbon Treaty can be regarded as an unambiguous authorisation for the reconsideration of all criminal law related regulation, including the current Directive 2008/99/EC of the European Parliament, and of the Council on the protection of the environment through criminal law. The reconsideration is particularly relevant in so far as the 2008 directive does not lay down measures concerning the procedural part of criminal law, nor does it touch upon the powers of police, prosecutors or judges. Moreover, it does not contain provisions on the role of Europol/Eurojust in the fight against environmental crime. The analysis should help shed some light on the potential for further development in the context of territorially based environmental crime.
The Telecommunications Act of 1996 The Telecommunications Act of 1996 Новинка

The Telecommunications Act of 1996

Revision with unchanged content. The enactment of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 fundamentally changed the basis of broadcast and communication media regulation and the structure of broadcast media in the United States. Touted by its proponents in the American media industry as a remedy for a regulatory regime viewed as non-competitive, the Telecommunications Act fundamentally changed ownership restrictions, reshaping local markets and effectively shifting ownership from local to non local entities. This research assesses the effects of this sweeping deregulation of U.S. broadcast media by disaggregating national data and examining in detail how this legislation affected individual broadcast markets. An examination of the sale of radio stations before and after the enactment of the Telecommunications Act gives the reader insight into the following questions: Did deregulation of broadcast media ownership regulations in the United States enhance competition and programming variety? Did deregulation affect ownership structures in smaller broadcast media markets in the same manner and at the same time as larger markets? This book is of interest to critical mass media and communications students and scholars, as well as students interested in the sociology of mass media and formal organizations.

The European codification project has rapidly gathered pace since the turn of the century. This monograph considers the codification project in light of a series of broader analytical frameworks – comparative, historical and constitutional – which make modern codification phenomena intelligible. This new reading across fields renders the European codification project (currently being promoted through the Common Frame of Reference and the Optional Sales Law Code proposal) vulnerable to constitutionally-grounded criticism, traceable to normative considerations of private law authority and legitimacy. Arguing that modern codification phenomena are more complex than positivist, socio-legal and historical approaches have suggested over the past two centuries, the book stages a pathbreaking method of analysis of the law-discourse (nomos-centred) which questions at once the reduction of private law to legislation and of law to power and, on this basis, redefines the ways in which to counter law’s disintegration and crisis in the context of Europeanisation. Professor Niglia reconstructs the European codification project as a complex structure of government-in-the-making that embodies a set of contingent world views, excludes alternatives, challenges the plurality of private laws and entrenches conflicts that pertain not only to form (codification, de-codification, recodification) but also to dilemmas implicated in determining the substantive orientation of European private law. The book investigates the position of the codifiers and their discontents in the shadow of the codification strategy pursued by the European Commission – noting a new turn in the struggle over the configuration of private law which has taken place since the Savigny-Thibaut dispute of 1814 which this book critically revisits exactly two centuries later. This monograph is particularly aimed at readers interested in exploring the complexities, and interconnections, of the supposedly separate realms of comparative law, European law, private law, legal history, constitutional law, sociology of law and, last but not least, legal theory and jurisprudence.
