The Fight Against Poverty and the Right to Development (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2021): Mads Andenas, Jeremy Perelman, Christian... The Fight Against Poverty and the Right to Development (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2021)
Mads Andenas, Jeremy Perelman, Christian Scharling
R4,631 Discovery Miles 46 310 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book conducts a comparative legal study from two analytical points of view. First, it accounts for the legal dimensions of the fight against poverty and the right to development as seen from the perspective of domestic legal law. It examines the domestic legal tools, such as constitutional law, that aim to contribute to the fight against poverty and the right to development. Second, the book accounts for the domestic contributions to the international legal framework and examines cross-cutting themes of the contemporary state-of-play on the fight against poverty more broadly and of the right to development. The book consists of several national and thematic reports, which look at these issues from either a national or a thematic perspective. Its first chapter is a general report, which draws on the national and thematic reports to compare, systematize and question the contemporary features at play within the field of the fight against poverty and the right to development.

The Reach of Free Movement (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2017): Mads Andenas, Tarjei Bekkedal, Luca Pantaleo The Reach of Free Movement (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2017)
Mads Andenas, Tarjei Bekkedal, Luca Pantaleo
R4,274 R3,606 Discovery Miles 36 060 Save R668 (16%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The reach of free movement within the EU Internal Market and what constitutes a restriction are the topics of this book. For many years the tension between free movement and restrictions have been the subject of intense discussion and controversy, and this includes the constitutional reach of the rights conferred by the Treaty of Lisbon. Anything that makes movement less attractive or more burdensome may constitute a restriction. Restrictions may be justified, but only if proportionate. The reach of free movement is fundamental to the Internal Market, both for the economic constitution and increasingly for individual rights in a European legal order that provides constitutional guarantees for rights, exceeding those of free movement. The interaction between fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms to movement distinguishes the EU legal order from the national legal systems. The book falls into four parts, 'The reach of free movement', 'Justifications and Proportionality', 'Fundamental rights', and 'Looking Abroad'. The clear discussion of the fundamentals and dilemmas regarding the subject of this book should prove useful for academics, practitioners, graduate students as well as EU officials and judges wishing to stay updated on the ongoing scholarly debate regarding relevance to case law. Mads Andenas is Professor at the Department of Private Law, University of Oslo and at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, School of Advanced Studies, University of London. Tarjei Bekkedal is Professor at the Centre for European Law, University of Oslo and the Chair of the Norwegian Association for European Law. Luca Pantaleo is a Lecturer in EU law at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, who obtained a Ph.D. in International and EU Law in 2013 at the University of Macerata in Italy, and who was previously a Senior Researcher at the T.M.C.

Theory and Practice of Harmonisation (Hardcover): Mads Andenas, Camilla Baasch Andersen Theory and Practice of Harmonisation (Hardcover)
Mads Andenas, Camilla Baasch Andersen
R5,808 Discovery Miles 58 080 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Harmonised and uniform international laws are now being spread across different jurisdictions and fields of law, bringing with them an increasing body of scholarship on practical problems and theoretical dimensions. This comprehensive and insightful book focuses on the contributions to the development and understanding of the critical theory of harmonisation. The contributing authors address a variety of different subjects concerned with harmonisation and the application of legal rules resulting from harmonisation efforts. This study is written by leading scholars engaged in different aspects of harmonisation, and covers both regional harmonisation within the EU and regional human rights treaties, as well as harmonisation with international treaty obligations. With comparative analysis that contributes to the development of a more general theory on the harmonisation process, this timely book will appeal to EU and international law scholars and practitioners, as well as those looking to future legal harmonisation in other regions in Asia, Latin America and Africa.

Courts and Comparative Law (Paperback): Mads Andenas, Duncan Fairgrieve Courts and Comparative Law (Paperback)
Mads Andenas, Duncan Fairgrieve
R1,440 Discovery Miles 14 400 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

While the role of comparative law in the courts was previously only an exception, foreign sources are now increasingly becoming a source of law in regular use in supreme and constitutional courts. There is considerable variation between the practices of courts and the role of comparative law, and methods remain controversial. In the US, the issue has been one of intense public debate and it is still one of the major dividing issues in the discussion about the role of the courts. Contributing to the existing discussion of the use of comparative law in the courts, this book provides an inclusive, coherent, and practical analysis of the relevant law and jurisprudence in comparative law in the courts. It examines the consequences for court procedures and the form of judgments, as well as how foreign sources are drawn upon in private international law, European law, administrative law, and constitutional law as well as before general courts. The book also includes case studies of comparative law used in particular spheres of the law, such as tort law and consumer law. Written by practising judges and lawyers as well as leading academics, this book serves as a central reference point concerning the role of comparative law before the courts.

Legal Recognition of Same-sex Partnerships - A Study of National, European and International Law (Paperback): Robert Wintemute,... Legal Recognition of Same-sex Partnerships - A Study of National, European and International Law (Paperback)
Robert Wintemute, Mads Andenas; Foreword by The Hon. Justice Edwin Cameron
R3,039 Discovery Miles 30 390 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Should same-sex couples be permitted to marry? Or should a separate institution of "registered partnership" or "civil union" be created for them? Or should the rights and duties of unmarried different-sex couples be extended to them? Should they be allowed to adopt each other's children, or jointly adopt an unrelated child? How should they be treated with regard to employment, social security, pensions, housing, immigration, taxation, inheritance, and divorce? These questions are being debated around the world, as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered persons increasingly (but not uniformly) insist that they cannot be truly equal without equal treatment for the loving and lasting relationships they form with their partners. In "Legal Recognition of Same-Sex Partnerships", an international team of scholars examines both theoretical issues and the wide variety of legal developments in the United States, Canada, Brazil, thirteen European countries, Israel, South Africa, India, Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand, as well as under European Community and European Convention law, and United Nations human rights law.

Mads Andenas, Gudula Deipenbrock
R5,077 Discovery Miles 50 770 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The book analyses the institutions of the European financial market supervision and the challenges of financial markets. The current European supervisory structure for financial markets represents a major development in European supervisory history. Its operation however has to be explored and analysed critically. Has it gone far enough to provide a sufficiently comprehensive and resilient system to reduce or mitigate systemic risks and handle financial crises? Some claim it has gone too far already. Fresh and rigorous critical legal and economic analysis from an independent scholarly perspective are needed to assess whether the institutional design of the European supervisory architecture has proved itself to be an efficient and effective model. This book discusses many dimensions of the structure and workings of the European system from various angles providing different dimensions. The book makes an important contribution to the limited literature on financial market supervision.

A Farewell to Fragmentation - Reassertion and Convergence in International Law (Paperback): Mads Andenas, Eirik Bjorge A Farewell to Fragmentation - Reassertion and Convergence in International Law (Paperback)
Mads Andenas, Eirik Bjorge
R1,148 Discovery Miles 11 480 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Fragmentation has been much discussed as a threat to international law as a legal system. This book contends that the fragmentation of international law is far exceeded by its convergence, as international bodies find ways to account for each other and the interactions of emerging sub-fields. Reasserting its role as the 'principal judicial organ of the United Nations', the International Court of Justice has ensured that the centre of international law can and does hold. This process has strengthened a trend towards the reunification of international law. In order to explore this process, this book looks at fragmentation and convergence from the point of view of the centre of the International Court and of the position of other courts and tribunals. Featuring contributions by leading international lawyers from a range of backgrounds, this volume proposes both a new take and the last word on the fragmentation debate in international law.

European Comparative Company Law (Paperback): Mads Andenas, Frank Wooldridge European Comparative Company Law (Paperback)
Mads Andenas, Frank Wooldridge
R1,499 Discovery Miles 14 990 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Company law is undergoing fundamental change in Europe. All European countries have undertaken extensive reform of their company legislation. Domestic reform has traditionally been driven by corporate failures or scandals. Initiatives to make corporate governance more effective are a feature of recent European law reform, as are measures to simplify and ease burdens on smaller and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). An increasing EU harmonisation is taking place through the Company Law Directives, and the free movement of companies is also facilitated by the case law of the European Court of Justice on the directives and the right to free movement and establishment in the EC Treaty. New European corporate forms such as the European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) and the European Company (SE) have added new dimensions. At a time of rapid development of EU and national company laws, this book will aid the understanding of an emerging discipline.

R3,010 Discovery Miles 30 100 Out of stock

Financial regulation has entered into a new era, as many foundational economic theories and policies supporting the existing infrastructure have been and are being questioned following the financial crisis. Goodhart et al's seminal monograph "Financial Regulation: Why, How and Where Now?" (Routledge:1998) took stock of the extent of financial innovation and the maturity of the financial services industry at that time, and mapped out a new regulatory roadmap. This book offers a timely exploration of the "Why, How and Where Now" of financial regulation in the aftermath of the crisis in order to map out the future trajectory of financial regulation in an age where financial stability is being emphasised as a key regulatory objective. The book is split into four sections: the objectives and regulatory landscape of financial regulation; the regulatory regime for investor protection; the regulatory regime for financial institutional safety and soundness; and macro-prudential regulation. The discussion ranges from theoretical and policy perspectives to comprehensive and critical consideration of financial regulation in the specifics. The focus of the book is on the substantive regulation of the UK and the EU, as critical examination is made of the unravelling and the future of financial regulation with comparative insights offered where relevant especially from the US. Running throughout the book is consideration of the relationship between financial regulation, financial stability and the responsibility of various actors in governance. This book offers an important contribution to continuing reflections on the role of financial regulation, market discipline and corporate responsibility in the financial sector, and upon the roles of regulatory authorities, markets and firms in ensuring the financial health and security of all in the future.

Global Trading (Paperback): Mads Andenas Global Trading (Paperback)
Mads Andenas
R1,772 Discovery Miles 17 720 Out of stock

This book deals with the changing manufacturer-retailer relationship, which has evolved as a consequence of developments in retailing and their influence on the market for consumer goods. This restructuring of market dynamics, along with the increasing globalization of business transactions, poses a challenge to the traditional legal analysis of retailer-manufacturer relationships. The trend towards retailer internationalization has put pressure on suppliers to negotiate with retailers at the international level rather than solely at individual national levels. As retailers' interests become more global and they demand that their operations adopt a global focus, there will be an increasing demand for global supply contracts. This book focuses on one feature of the changing relationship between retailers and manufacturers: the use of global prices, terms and contracts, which are generally seen to be a manifestation of increased retailer power. The aim is to identify the legal consequences of replacing a series of nationally-based supply contracts with one multinational or global arrangement. This book is particularly relevant in light of recent news articles on mega-retailers, such as Wal-Mart.

Independent Administrative Authorities (Paperback): Roberto Caranta, Mads Andenas, Duncan Fairgrieve Independent Administrative Authorities (Paperback)
Roberto Caranta, Mads Andenas, Duncan Fairgrieve
R1,935 Discovery Miles 19 350 Out of stock

Independent administrative authorities have become a permanent feature of the institutional landscape over past decades. The need for institutions with both impartiality and technical expertise has led to an increase in number and scope of independent administrative authorities. Independent administrative authorities regulate stock markets and financial institutions; they protect fundamental rights such as access to administrative documents. There is however a conflict between independence and accountability. In some ways, independent administrative authorities are at odds with the traditional notion of separation of powers which still lies at the heart of constitutional thinking. This book aims to shed light on how different legal jurisdictions have articulated their answers to this tension, at the same time discussing how separation of power has been twisted or reworked to make room for this novel form of public authority.

Mads Andenas, Gerard Sanders
R3,339 Discovery Miles 33 390 Out of stock

This important and incisive new book examines contractual enforcement mechanisms in central and southeastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The volume is an outcome of the cooperation between the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and the British Institute for International and Comparative Law (BIICL). EBRD and BIICL have facilitated both formal and informal dialogue and cooperation on contract enforcement issues. The rich and informed debate between practitioners and academics, together with the representatives of international organizations, policymakers and judges is reflected in this book. The book addresses the role of the rule of law in development and protection of contractual rights in transition nations of central and southeastern Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States. Also examined is the role of courts in these countries, along with their structure, independence and integrity. The book discusses the practical aspects of contract and obligations enforcement, and the framework they should follow. Regarding arbitration or alternative dispute resolution, who are the main actors and what is the appropriate script? The book highlights that after more than thirteen years of transition, contract enforcement has not reached a stage where it provides the required basis for economic development. It requires sustained attention from national governments, regional bodies and the international community. The book concludes by examining the appropriate way forward. The enforcement of contractual rights and obligations is a condition for economic development, and this book should appeal to a wide readership ranging from academics and practitioners to policy makers and the judiciary in both developed and developing economies.
