Im deutschen Eigentums-, Stellvertretungs-, Abtretungs- und Bereicherungsrecht gilt in unterschiedlichem Masse der Verkehrsschutzgedanke. Danach soll der Erwerb einer Rechtsposition grundsatzlich unabhangig sein von den Beziehungen zwischen dem Vertragspartner des Erwerbers und Dritten. Inwieweit lasst sich auch im englischen Recht ein allgemeines Verkehrsschutzprinzip identifizieren? Mit diesem Ansatz behandelt Lukas Rademacher aus vergleichender Perspektive ubergreifende Fragen der ansonsten zumeist unverbundenen Rechtsgebiete contract , property , tort , unjust enrichment und trust - jeweils zusatzlich durchzogen von der bis heute lebendigen gedanklichen Parallelitat von common law im engeren Sinne und equity . Dabei stellen die aus der deutschen Diskussion bekannten Problemfelder das Gerust bereit, anhand dessen das englische Recht entfaltet wird. Dies ermoglicht einen unmittelbar vergleichenden Zugriff auf die jeweils zugrunde liegenden Wertungen.

Acclaim for the first edition: ïThis is a very important and immense book. . . The Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law is a treasure-trove of honed knowledge of the laws of many countries. It is a reference book for dipping into, time and time again. It is worth every penny and there is not another as comprehensive in its coverage as ElgarÍs. I highly recommend the Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law to all English chambers. This is a very important book that should be sitting in every university law school library.Í _ Sally Ramage, The Criminal Lawyer Containing newly updated versions of existing entries and adding several important new entries, this second edition of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law takes stock of present-day comparative law scholarship. Written by leading authorities in their respective fields, the contributions in this accessible book cover and combine not only questions regarding the methodology of comparative law, but also specific areas of law (such as administrative law and criminal law) and specific topics (such as accident compensation and consideration). In addition, the Encyclopedia contains reports on a selected set of countriesÍ legal systems and, as a whole, presents an overview of the current state of affairs. Providing its readers with a unique point of reference, as well as stimulus for further research, this volume is an indispensable tool for anyone interested in comparative law, especially academics, students and practitioners.

Die Qualifikation der Haftung des falsus procurator im Internationalen Privatrecht

Stellvertreter werden vielfach im grenzüberschreitenden Rechtsverkehr eingesetzt. Gleichwohl existiert eine ausdrückliche Kollisionsnorm, wonach das anwendbare Recht auf die Haftung eines Vertreters bestimmt werden könnte, der ohne Vertretungsmacht handelt, weder im europäischen noch im deutschen Kollisionsrecht. In Literatur und Rechtsprechung ist lebhaft umstritten, nach welcher Kollisionsnorm das anwendbare Recht zu ermitteln ist. Mit Inkrafttreten der EU-Verordnungen Rom I und II hat die Diskussion eine neue Dimension erhalten. Stefan Reuter untersucht Kollisionsnormen sowohl der EU-Verordnungen als auch des deutschen Kollisionsrechts dahingehend, ob das anwendbare Recht auf die Haftung des falsus procurator mit Hilfe einer dieser Kollisionsnormen bestimmt werden kann. Stefan Reuter verneint dies und erarbeitet auf Grundlage der kollisionsrechtlichen Methodenlehre einen eigenen Regelungsvorschlag, der andere mitgliedstaatliche Rechtsordnungen sowie den DCFR berücksichtigt.

Commentaries on European Contract Laws

The book provides rule-by-rule commentaries on European contract law (general contract law, consumer contract law, the law of sale and related services), dealing with its modern manifestations as well as its historical and comparative foundations. After the collapse of the European Commission's plans to codify European contract law it is timely to reflect on what has been achieved over the past three to four decades, and for an assessment of the current situation. In particular, the production of a bewildering number of reference texts has contributed to a complex picture of European contract laws rather than a European contract law. The present book adopts a broad perspective and an integrative approach. All relevant reference texts (from the CISG to the Draft Common European Sales Law) are critically examined and compared with each other. As far as the acquis commun (ie the traditional private law as laid down in the national codifications) is concerned, the Principles of European Contract Law have been chosen as a point of departure. The rules contained in that document have, however, been complemented with some chapters, sections, and individual provisions drawn from other sources, primarily in order to account for the quickly growing acquis communautaire in the field of consumer contract law. In addition, the book ties the discussion concerning the reference texts back to the pertinent historical and comparative background; and it thus investigates whether, and to what extent, these texts can be taken to be genuinely European in nature, ie to constitute a manifestation of a common core of European contract law. Where this is not the case, the question is asked whether, and for what reasons, they should be seen as points of departure for the further development of European contract law.

The Common European Sales Law in Context

European Contract Law unification projects have recently advanced from the Draft Common Frame of Reference (2009) to a European Commission proposal for an optional Common European Sales Law (2011) which is to facilitate cross-border marketing. This book investigates for the first time how CESL and DCFR rules would interact with various aspects of domestic law, represented by English and German law. Nineteen chapters, co-authored by British and German scholars, examine such interface issues for eg pre-contractual relationships, notions of contract, formation, interpretation, and remedies, extending to non-discrimination, third parties, transfers or rights, aspects of property law, and collective proceedings. They go beyond a critical analysis of CESL and DCFR rules by demonstrating where and how CESL rules would interact with neighbouring areas of English and German law before English and German courts, how domestic traditions might influence the application, which aspects might motivate sellers and buyers to choose or reject CESL, and which might serve as model for national legislators. The findings are summarized in the final two chapters.

Justice is a fundamental category in the social field as well as in social sciences. However, public and also scientific debates take place in narrow thematic boundaries. But in a world society that has been promoted by globalisation processes, the base of the traditional paradigm of development policy was shattered, prolonging the idea of the welfare state with respect to redistribution in the European post-war era along the north-south axis. The successes and failures of global economy have introduced new players to the game and limited the manoeuvering room of the former team captains in terms of an emphatic distribution policy. At the same time, new social inequalities arise in rich and in poor economies, which are not restricted to the material dimension alone. It is no longer solely about poverty and wealth or development and underdevelopment, but also about crossing ethnical, cultural and social barriers of participation. At the same time this constellation is a challenge for the disciplines of social sciences. The often requested interdisciplinarity, however, does not come about because there is a need, but rather requires occasions. This volume compiles the contributions of authors rooted in (social-) philosophy, sociology, political science and economics

Europ isches Vertragsrecht

English summary: This volume deals with the contract law of the European legal systems. What are the essential rules of these systems on the formation and validity of contracts? What rules apply to a party's right to bring a claim for performance, to terminate the contract or to claim damages for breach? While the discussion is based on the national rules, they are taken into account only as local variations on a European theme. To what extent is it therefore possible to speak of a common European law of contract? What contributions do the "Principles of European Contract Law" and the proposal of the "Draft Common Frame of Reference" make? This book is not only aimed at helping to teach young Europeans lawyers, but also strives to assist those engaged in the reform of national contract law or the drafting of uniform European legislation. The first 1996 edition of the volume has now been updated and completed. German description: Unter "Europaischem Vertragsrecht" versteht dieses Buch die Regeln, die den Rechtsordnungen der europaischen Lander gemeinsam sind: Wie kommt ein gultiger Vertrag zustande? Nach welchen Regeln wird beurteilt, ob eine Vertragspartei die Erfullung des Vertrages verlangen, von dem Vertrag Abstand nehmen, ihn widerrufen oder kundigen oder den Kontrahenten auf Schadensersatz in Anspruch nehmen kann? Lassen sich auf dem Gebiet des Vertragsrechts gemeineuropaische Strukturen auffinden? Gibt es allgemein akzeptierte Regeln? Wie sind sie zu formulieren, wenn man die "Prinzipien des Europaischen Vertragsrechts" oder die Vorschlage des "Draft Common Frame of Reference" berucksichtigt? Dabei werden die Losungen der nationalen Rechtsordnungen ausfuhrlich - wenn auch stets nur als nationale Variationen eines europaischen Themas - behandelt. Das Buch kann deshalb bei der rechtsvergleichenden Ausbildung der jungen europaischen Juristen eine Rolle spielen, ferner auch dort, wo e s um die Vorbereitung europaischen Gesetzesrechts oder um die Reform der nationalen Vertragsrechte geht. Das Buch ist in einer ersten unvollstandigen Auflage schon 1996 erschienen. Die Neuauflage bringt den Text auf den neuen Stand und erganzt ihn um die damals noch fehlenden Abschnitte.
