This concise book is mainly intended to be used as an introduction to the rules of private international law belonging to the legal system of the European Union. It provides legal practitioners with an overview of this highly complex field of law and can serve as an introductory textbook in elective undergraduate courses and master programs offered today by many law schools both to their own students and to exchange students from other countries. The book will hopefully also be useful as a spring-board towards more profound studies of statutory texts, case law and legal literature. About the authorsMarta Pertegás Sender is professor of Private International Law and Transnational Law at Maastricht University. Michael Bogdan is Professor of Comparative and Private International Law at the University of Lund, Sweden.

<![CDATA[ Extradition Law and Practice (To be published in January 2019) ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 13:45:32 +0200 Published: Extradition Law and Practice (To be published in January 2019) door Stefano Maffei et al. 

The subject of "international extradition" is not independently taught in legal education programs around the world, and still extradition remains today the most significant form of mutual assistance in criminal matters between States. This book provides a concise and clear description of extradition law and procedure based on a number of key principles and concepts (double criminality, rule of speciality, assurances) drawn from domestic extradition statutes, bilateral and multilateral treaties. It then outlines 35 well-known extradition cases, in which suspects, accused and convicted persons fought the extradition requests by invoking certain grounds for refusal of surrender (human rights violations, unfairness of trial in the requesting country, excessive punishment, etc). For each of these cases, an outline of the facts, the outcome of the case and the legal arguments of the parties is provided. The book is ideal for legal practitioners who wish to familiarise with the law and practice of extradition litigation around the world and to learn about the best available strategies to effectively assist clients in extradition cases. About the authorStefano Maffei is a lecturer in Criminal procedure at the University of Parma (Italy). A former Fulbright Scholar at Temple Law School (Philadelphia, USA), Dr. Maffei holds a doctorate from Oxford University and authored numerous publications in the area of comparative procedure and evidence. Dr Maffei has served on several occasions as an expert witness in international extradition cases.

Het mededingingsrecht wordt steeds belangrijker in de economie en speelt daarom ook een belangrijke rol in de diverse juridische opleidingen. Dit boek wil studenten op gevorderd bachelors en mastersniveau een goede inleiding op het mededingingsrecht geven. Daarbij wordt aandacht besteed aan het economische en politieke krachtenveld waarin het mededingingsrecht wordt toegepast. Behalve een duidelijke uiteenzetting van het geldende recht (Artikel 101 - 108 Werkingsverdrag, Concentratiecontroleverordening en Mededingingswet) geeft de auteur ook zijn beredeneerde mening over de onopgeloste problemen binnen het mededingingsrecht, waarmee zij de kritische analyse van dit rechtsgebied willen stimuleren. Deze benadering maakt het boek ook geschikt voor advocaten en andere beoefenaars van het mededingingsrecht die behoefte hebben aan een gedegen en kritische analyse van het recht. Over de auteurHans Vedder is als hoogleraar economisch ordeningsrecht verbonden aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en is Raadsheer-plaatsvervanger bij het Gerechtshof Leeuwarden.

<![CDATA[ The Law and Policy of International Trade in Electricity ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:00:50 +0200 Published: The Law and Policy of International Trade in Electricity door Karolis Gudas 

The book examines the legal guarantees provided under the European Union (EU) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules for the development of electricity transmission systems, either by constructing new transmission lines or by increasing transmission capacity. In the context of analysis of trade rules, the book makes the argument that, if long-distance trade in electricity remains a feasible option, the development of electricity transmission projects must be made subject to economic, technological and environmental criteria. It is dealt with in light of specific challenges of electricity trade related to its dependence on networks, storage and balancing. The book offers insights into the scope of the WTO and the EU related to access to and the development of cross-border electricity infrastructure development, connection and integration of abundant renewable energies into the electricity systems. It has criticized the EU’s regulations in terms of a lack of technological neutrality, as well as the WTO system in terms of lack of sector-tailored regulations that are necessary to achieve the objectives of the WTO to facilitate trade and transit. The regulatory environment for the development of cross-border electricity transmission projects has been examined based on identified obstacles from the analysis of the major multinational electricity systems in the world. AuthorDr Karolis Gudas holds PhD degree from the World Trade Institute, University of Bern. At present he is the General Counsel of the project of national significance to Lithuania – Vilnius CHP, a Lecturer in Energy Law at Vilnius University and Center Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, University of Cambridge. Karolis has significant experience in the energy sector having previously worked at the European Commission, as a consultant to the Iceland – UK electricity interconnector project and a legal counsel at the Baltic law firm Motieka & Audzevicius. He has been included in the list of energy experts of the Legal Task Force of the Energy Charter Secretariat.

About the book Since the 1970s, the Black Sea has been suffering a severe pollution from excessive input of nutrients and chemicals. To improve the situation, the Convention on the Protection of the Black Sea Against Pollution (Bucharest Convention) was signed in 1992 and the Black Sea Commission (BSC) was established. Environmental protection by the Black Sea Commission: Organisation and performance in comparison with the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM) provides a comprehensive up-to-date analysis of the BSC’s role as a regional actor in the environmental protection of the Black Sea, addressing the following main questions: What are the main (institutional and regulatory) challenges and obstacles for the effective functioning of the BSC and how can they be overcome? What is the current and future role of the BSC as a regional player for the protection of the Black Sea? What possibilities and potential does the BSC have to promote the harmonization of national legal frameworks in relevant areas? The research is based on a comparative analysis with Helsinki Commission (HELCOM) which has been a renowned environmental protection actor in the Baltic Sea region for more than 40 years. About the author Nina Khuchua is Environmental Policy Expert at InterSus – Sustainability Services (Berlin, Germany). She studied at University of Bremen, Forschungsstelle für Europäisches Umweltrecht.

<![CDATA[ The Impact of the Mortgage Credit Directive in Europe (Just Published!) ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:24:53 +0200 Published: The Impact of the Mortgage Credit Directive in Europe (Just Published!) door Miriam Anderson ; Esther Arroyo Amayuelas 

How has European Private Law responded to the property and mortgage markets crisis? And in what way is this reaction likely to model domestic systems? The financial and economic crisis that has marked the beginning of the century has had a devastating effect on the property and mortgage markets in many Member States of the European Union. Despite this, the European legislator took its time to respond. This book analyses the impact of the Mortgage Credit Directive (Directive 2014/17) in twelve different jurisdictions: Belgium, England, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Spain. The reports show how in some instances only certain products (such as foreign currency loans) or practices (irresponsible lending, homeownership promoting policies, the use of unfair terms) were factors that triggered the property crash; in other cases, the system completely failed to address an exceptional situation and, finally, in some instances, prudent lending explains why the market was virtually not hit at all. This book aims to find out whether the two goals of Directive 2014/17 (financial sector stability and enhanced consumer protection) can be achieved in light of its provisions and of the transposition carried out by the different Member States, and whether the changes it introduces have a significant impact in the jurisdictions here considered. Some systems are already showing signs of yet another property bubble. There is room for hope: perhaps we have learned from the past, perhaps the Directive is a step forward, but more importantly this book shows that we can learn from each other.

<![CDATA[ The Making of a New European Legal Culture: The Aarhus Convention. (Just Published!) ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:23:35 +0200 Published: The Making of a New European Legal Culture: The Aarhus Convention. (Just Published!) door Roberto Caranta, Anna Gerbrandy, Bilun Müller (eds.) 

The Aarhus Convention entered into force more than 20 years ago. It lays down the pillars of environmental democracy, that is a governance systems where citizens and civil society organisations are fully involved in the decisions affecting the environment we all live in. On the one hand the Convention drew on the experience of those jurisdictions where environmental concerns run deeper. On the other hand, once enacted, it was expected to bring about important changes in those jurisdictions which were less sensible to these issues. As such, the Convention is an ideal testing ground upon where to study how legal principles, rules and institutions behave once they are moved from one jurisdiction to another and how the recipient jurisdiction reacts at receiving a transplant. The analysis from a legal cultural approach the law in the EU and 8 Member States provides a much richer picture about how the Aarhus Convention has been implement and what are the legal cultural enablers and obstacles to the full development of environmental democracy in different jurisdictions. Additionally, the research assesses how far is a common European legal culture developing in core areas not just of environmental, but of administrative and to a large extent of constitutional law? The book provides an updated coverage of the implementation of the Aarhus Convention at both EU level and in a relevant number of Member States and will be useful to academics and practitioners alike. About the editorsRoberto Caranta is Professor of Administrative law at Turin University. Anna Gerbrandy professor of Competition Law at the Europa Institute of Utrecht University School of Law, the Netherlands. Dr. Bilun Müller, LL.M.

This monograph gives a comprehensive overview of international and Serbian activities and measures that promote the importance of safeguarding cultural heritage and their horizontal integration with the areas of environmental protection, spatial planning and risk management issues in emergency situations. An inter-sectoral approach creates conditions for more expedient actions, but also makes the basis for the creation of public policies and adequate legislation in this area. A critical review of the current legal and strategic framework provides policymakers guidance for reducing harmful climate impacts on the state of cultural monuments in the world and in Serbia. Such aspirations are achievable through the promotion of international cooperation, strengthening of institutional capacity, creation of adequate study programmes and supporting scientific and technological innovations.All in all, future policies of adaptation should give more space to the protection of cultural property. Thus their quality and capacity will be improved, in order to preserve important social values in terms of contemporary challenges and increasingly frequent extreme weather conditions.

<![CDATA[ The Maastricht Collection (5th ed.) Volumes 1-4 (Free shipping!) ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:23:58 +0200 Published: The Maastricht Collection (5th ed.) Volumes 1-4 (Free shipping!) door S. Hardt & N. Kornet 

The Maastricht Collection comprises a broad selection of legal instruments and provisions that have proven to be particularly relevant and useful to students and practitioners of international, European, and comparative law. The compilation is based on the Maastricht University Law School’s longstanding expertise in teaching and researching European, international, and comparative national law. It includes codes and statutory law from France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, international treaties, as well as legal instruments of the European Union. The provisions contained in The Maastricht Collection are reproduced in the original English or in the authentic English version, where applicable, or they are freshly translated under critical editorship. Existing translations of written law, including officious translations available on government websites, often seek to turn old-fashioned or ambiguous original texts into modern and elegant English. Or, instead of translating, they seek to explain how certain terms and formulations are interpreted in practice. The translations in The Maastricht Collection remain as faithful as possible to the content and linguistic style of the original, thus allowing the reader not only to appreciate the substance but also the authentic form of legal sources. The fifth edition of The Maastricht Collection constitutes not only a full revision and update of the fourth edition, but also comprises many important additions, aiming to further enhance its value as a resource in teaching and research. Due to the significant expansion of the collection, this new edition has been divided into four reader-friendly volumes:• Vol. I - International and European Law (ISBN 9789089521941)• Vol. II - Comparative Public Law (ISBN 9789089521958)• Vol. III - International and European Private Law (ISBN 9789089521965)• Vol. IV - Comparative Private Law (ISBN 9789089521972)The four volumes of The Maastricht Collection are available both individually and as a complete set.

<![CDATA[ The Procedural Aspects of the Application of Competition Law ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:04:27 +0200 Published: The Procedural Aspects of the Application of Competition Law door Csongor István Nagy 

Although substantive competition law has been largely “Europeanized”, procedural law comes, for the most part, under the autonomy of the Member States and, for a long time, thinking on the procedural aspects of competition law’s application had not been in the focus of the European scholarship. Nonetheless, recently, “procedure” became one of the most topical issues of European competition law and came to the fore of the scholarly discourse. This edited volume addresses the above subject’s pan-European framework and its Central European perspectives with the purpose of channelling the region’s experiences into the European discourse. The book’s first part (Section 1) examines the general issues of the procedural aspects of competition law’s application, while Sections 2 and 3 analyse the administrative competition procedure (and judicial review) and the legal consequences of breaching competition rules in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. About the editorDr. Csongor István Nagy Ph.D., LL.M., S.J.D, dr. juris is an associate professor in Hungary, the leader of the Federal Markets “Momentum” Research Group at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the head of the Department of Private International Law at the University of Szeged and an attorney-at-law admitted to the Budapest Bar. Furthermore, he is visiting professor at the Central European University, at the Sapientia University of Transylvania and at the Riga Graduate School of Law.

<![CDATA[ The Model Rules on EU Administrative Procedures: Adjucation ]]> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:23:37 +0200 Published: The Model Rules on EU Administrative Procedures: Adjucation door Matthias Ruffert 

In various European countries, debates on the transformation of administrative law are held from a national perspective and with different intensity. Given the considerable effects such a discussion may have on the methods of administrative legal scholarship, an analysis of these developments in a European context promises valuable results. For this purpose, a long term transnational exchange of ideas – between administrative law scholars from England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden, was initiated in 2005 in Dornburg Castle and then continued with meetings in London (2007), Paris (2009) and Dornburg Castle again (2012). The fifth workshop took place in Rome in April 2015. This time, the group considered a proposal for codification, the Model Rules of the Research Network on European Administrative Law (ReNEUAL). It analysed the Third Book of the Model Rules on single administrative decisions in particular. About the editor The editor Matthias Ruffert is Professor of Public Law and European Law, Humboldt University Berlin, Germany. He initiated the group and is co-leading it with Pascale Gonod, Université de Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne, and Andrew Le Sueur, Queen Mary College, University of London.
