This is the 2005 volume of the Arbitration Law Reports and Review

series, which makes full texts of judgments on the arbitration law of

England, Wales and Northern Ireland available in a single

publication on an annual basis. Yearly volumes include a

comprehensive collection of arbitration-related judicial decisions for

the relevant calendar year, with back volumes in preparation to

cover each year since entry into force of the Arbitration Act 1996.

The case law is cross-referenced and each case is prefaced by a

head note of keywords, a concise summary of the issues, the

holding and judicial comments obiter plus lists of cases, arbitration

rules and legislation referred to.

Each volume contains the Editor's analytical review of

developments during the year, offering comment on decisions,

grouping cases together under thematic headings to identify trends

and developments, and integrating discussion of relevant nonarbitration

related cases (contract interpretation, human rights,

adjudication, expert determination, mediation, procedural fairness,

duties to give reasons and so on). The review also draws attention

to comparative developments abroad, in particular to UNCITRAL

Model Law jurisdictions applying similar legislative provisions.

The definitive single source for full text English arbitration cases

and analysis: including many cases unreported elsewhere.

Analytical and comparative commentary section adds context to

individual decisions, offers additional references relevant to

arbitration issues, and assists in identifying trends. Keywords and

headnotes for each case provide at a glance summaries. Extensive

indexing and cross-referencing assist the research process. This

2005 volume is part of a comprehensive series: volumes for 2001

and 2003 have been published; volumes for 1997 to 2000, 2002

and 2004 are forthcoming; and volumes for 2006 onwards will be

" A splendid treatise on international commercial arbitration which

is unsurpassed in the breadth and depth of its exposition and in the

acuity of its analysis. It marries the industry of the meticulous

scholar with the pragmatic judgment of one of the international

arbitration's leading practitioners. A great achievement."

Stephen Schwebel, former President, International Court of Justice

which is breathtaking in its scope and comprehensiveness."

This publication from the International Bureau of the Permanent

Court of Arbitration (PCA) presents a collection of studies on the

key issues found in complex international commercial and

investment disputes. Renowned authors from Europe and North

America consider issues from perspectives emanating from both

the Anglo-American and Continental European legal systems.

The authors consider international multiparty arbitration and its

attendant problems from both a conceptual and practical

perspective, beginning with the overarching legal problems of

determining the proper parties to the arbitration and the ambit of

contractual consent. Topics which are comprehensively examined

include: Joinder of parties and consolidation of arbitral

proceedings; the challenges of administration of multiparty

arbitrations; investment arbitration involving multiple parties and

multiparty issues in investor-state arbitration; classwide arbitration

and arbitrating mass investor claims; lessons that can be learnt

from mass claims processes; and enforcement issues. The book

also includes a practitioner-oriented discussion of multiparty

arbitration in the construction industry.

The history of the world trading system and international trade

agreements is characterised by shifts between bilateralism,

regionalism and multilateralism. Bilateralism has recently returned,

having gained momentum following the failed WTO negotiations at

the 1999 Seattle Ministerial Conference. The result is that today's

international trade rules are now a complex web of instruments and

agreements. This volume contains case studies of selected

bilateral and regional free trade agreements (FTAs), covering a

wide range of countries, regions and key issues such as intellectual

property and agriculture. Authored by leading scholars,

practitioners and governmental officials, each case study provides

a comprehensive review of the negotiating history and result of the

selected agreement. Each study can serve as an in-depth

examination of a particular FTA, and the group of case studies can

be used to compare and contrast the coverage of different FTAs or

to examine the FTAs signed by a particular country.

• Companion book to the unique collection of core agreements

available at www.worldtradelaw.net • Text offers ‘added value’

As the Doha Development Round trade negotiations have stalled,

bilateral and regional free trade agreements have become an

important alternative. These agreements have proliferated in recent

years, and now all of the major trading countries are engaging in

serious bilateral and regional trade negotiations with multiple

trading partners. This book provides a comprehensive study of

recent bilateral and regional trade agreements. There are two main

aspects. First, it situates bilateral and regional trade agreements in

the context of economics, international law and international

relations. Second, it surveys the most important recent agreements

in relation to each substantive topic covered (e.g. intellectual

property, investment, services and social policy) and provides an

overview of the law being created in these areas.

Contracts for the Sale of Goods delivers a detailed analysis and indepth

comparison of the substantive law for the sale of goods in

domestic and international transactions. Practitioners, academics,

and anyone involved in the sale or purchase of goods in the

international market will need this thorough analysis of both the text

of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International

Sale of Goods (CISF) and the cases that have addressed and

interpreted the CISG. Contracts for the Sale of Goods provides a

complete discussion and comparison of the UNIDROIT Principles

of International Commercial Contracts including the new provisions

on setoff, assignment, and limitation periods, as well as a

comparative treatment of the CISG and the UNIDROIT Principles

to the articles of the Uniform Commercial Code. Both practitioners

and academics will find the clarity and ease of access useful to the

comparative legal analysis in this book. Of particular note is the

style and format which allows the reader to find the relevant

provisions and cross-references quickly and accurately. Contracts

for the Sale of Goods provides you with all relevant materials in

one source, with the text following the structure of the Convention

for clarity and convenience Access the Incoterms 2000, the

complete texts of Article Two and the PIC, and a list of parties to

the CISG. Moreover, the text is structured to provide the answers

first, then supplement this with the underlying purpose and

rationale for the rules. This allows the reader the ability to locate

the correct law quickly, but also allows the reader to delve further

into the law if desired.

• Comprehensive coverage of the new UCC and UNIDROIT

principles which many lawyers will not be familiar with

• Clear exposition allows readers to understand and compare

domestic and international sales law in a single volume

• Analysis of the new cases in the UNCITRAL CISG Digest

(including several hundred new references and cross-references),

and new provisions on setoff, assignment, limitation principles

• Incorporation of the European Principles of Contract Law as a

fourth set of legal principles in addition to the CISG, the UCC and

the UNIDROIT Principles

• Access to new cases on the CISG and the UNIDROIT Principles

that are reported in the updated UNILEX database; Clarity and

ease of access to the comparative materials is a time saver for

both practitioners and academics. Organization and format allows

Global business interacts efficiently despite the heterogeneity of

social, economic and legal cultures which, according to widespread

assumptions, cause insecurities and uncertainties. Breaches of

contracts may occur more frequently and business relationships

may be terminated more often in international than in domestic

trade. But most business people engaged in exporting or importing

products or services seem to operate in a sufficiently predictable

environment allowing successful ventures into the global market.

The apparent paradox presented by cultural/institutional diversity

and contractual efficiency in cross-border business transactions is

the focus of this volume of essays. The wide range of approaches

adopted by contributors to the volume include: the Weberian

concept of law as a tool for avoiding the risk of opportunism;

economic sociology, which treats networks and relationships

between contractual parties as paramount; representatives of new

institutional economics who discuss law as well as private

governance institutions as most efficient responses to risk;

comparative economic sociologists who point to the varieties of

legal cultures in the social organisation of trust; and national and

international institutions such as the World Bank which try to

promote legal certainty in the economy. The purpose of the volume

is to build on this interdisciplinary exercise by adding empirical

evidence to ongoing debates regarding enabling structures for

international business, and by critically reviewing and discussing

some of the propositions in the literature which contain interesting

hypotheses on the effects of the internationalisation of markets on

market co-ordination institutions and on the role of the state in the

globalising economy.

Over the past 10 years, the content and application of international

trade law has grown dramatically. The WTO created a binding

dispute settlement process and in resolving disputes, the judicial

organs of the WTO have built up a substantial amount of new

international trade law. Emerging from this new WTO process is an

international trade law system that is in some respects selfcontained

and in other respects overlapping and linked to other

international legal, economic and political regimes. The

'boundaries' of trade law are now generating enormous interest and

controversy which, at a broader level, is subsumed within the

debate over globalisation.

The detailed development of the rules of international trade is being

examined with increasing frequency by scholars, government

officials and trade law practitioners. But how does it fit with existing

systems? How it is modified by them? How does the international

trade law system affect and modifiy other regimes?

This Handbook places international trade law within its broader

context, providing comment and critique on contemporary thinking

on a range of questions both related specifically to the discipline of

international trade law itself and to the outside face of international

trade law and its intersection with States and other aspects of the

international system. It examines the economic and institutional

context of the world trading system, its substantive law (including

regional trade regimes) and the settlement of disputes. The final

part of the book explores the wider framework of the world trading

system, considering issues including the relationship of the WTO to

civil society, the use of economic sanctions, state responsibility,

and the regulation of multinational corporations.

Oxford Handbooks offer authoritative and up-to-date surveys of

original research in a particular subject area. Specially

commissioned essays from leading figures in the discipline give

critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates.

Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with

compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the

Contractual remedies aimed at performance create a well-known

rift between common law and civil law traditions, in the one existing

in the shadow of damages, whilst in the other regarded as a

generally enforceable right following from the contract.

Developments in approximation of laws in Europe, in particular in

consumer sales law, suggest however that a convergence of these

approaches may be within reach. Putting the focus on the contract

of sale, which as the most common type of contract may fulfil a

leading role in the harmonisation process, this book aims to provide

a model for further convergence of European sales laws, engaging

with issues of contract theory and comparative law lying at the

heart of the process. Independently from this, the comparison

between different systems is used in order to highlight particular

problems in the remedial schemes of individual systems and to see

whether a better solution may be borrowed from elsewhere.

Scaling the interests of sellers and buyers as reflected in national

laws as well as in uniform sets of rules such as CISG and PECL, a

plea is made for a primary position for performance-oriented

remedies in the harmonisation of European sales law. In this

context, special significance is attributed to the possibility of cure

by the seller, which has both practical and conceptual links to the

buyer's remedies aimed at performance.

The Companies Act 2006 has involved a major overhaul,

codification and consolidation of the common law rules and

principles relating to the duties of company directors. At the same

time, the Act introduces new concepts, such as conflict of interest,

which come into force in October 2008.

Directors' Duties provides a fresh examination of this topic in light

of the codification of those duties, explaining the role of directors

within the corporate governance process. This is coupled with

authoritative guidance and detailed analysis on:

The consequences of breach of duties

Relief that can be ordered

Potential defences

How the new statutory derivative proceedings apply to directors'

breach of duties

While no UK case law exists on this new area of law, the author,

who is the Commonwealth Editor of Gore-Browne on Companies,

has uniquely turned to case law from the Commonwealth and

United States where similar laws have existed for some time for an

indication of how the law is likely to be interpreted here.

Directors' Duties provides much needed guidance for company and

in-house lawyers, accountants, directors and company secretaries

on this area of key concern.

2009/01 NL Kluwer Law

Hardback 452 p.

€ 139,50

To be enforceable, a foreign judgement needs some kind of

‘passport’ so that it can be given the same treatment as a

judgement given at home. This is particularly true of monetary

obligations. In Europe, the tension between the need for crossborder

portability of such obligations and their enforcement, on the

one hand, and sovereign states’ judicial control over enforcement

of domestic and foreign judgements, on the other, has been

addressed repeatedly by the European Court of Justice and the

Commission and Council of the European Communities, most

recently through the notion of ‘mutual trust.’ However, despite

concerted efforts to establish some harmonization in this area,

substantial divergences persist between the Member States’

procedural systems as regards the definition of an enforcement

order, the procedures for enforcing judgements and, above all, the

status, powers and responsibilities of enforcement officials. This

major new exploration of the current status of cross-border

enforcement of debts in Europe offers in-depth analysis of the most

recent relevant regulation at the European Union level, as well as

the default domestic regulation in England and Wales, Germany,

France, Italy and Spain- five jurisdictions chosen due to the very

thick web of relations they have had with each other as part of the

established European order.

The author provides detailed consideration of such elements of the

legal landscape as the following: minimum standards for

uncontested claims procedures; requirements as to service and

information to be provided; extended safeguards of the creditor’s

position and the rights of the defence; procedure for certification

and for enforcement in the Member States of origin and of

execution; and application, service and enforcement of a European

Order for Payment.

In the context of the intense academic and practical debate around

what is being called ‘European civil procedure,’ this book

contributes signally to the Commission’s stated objective of

ensuring ‘as globally as possible a swift, efficient and inexpensive

access to justice.’ The author details the procedural measures

prescribed by the relevant directives (and their case law so far),

and incidentally provides a convenient conduit to the appropriate

material on the websites of the European Judicial Network and the

Judicial Atlas in each jurisdiction. As lawyers continue, in the

absence of ‘mutual trust’, to apply their own historic and

philosophical meaning to the ‘harmonized’ procedures – no matter

how much this approach is discouraged in the preambles to the

regulations and directives – this book greatly illuminates the way

forward in a difficult but extremely important area of European law.

Elements of Contract Interpretation

Burton

Hardback 256 p.

GBP 34,99

€ 44,90

This book describes and analyzes the law of contract interpretation

in the United States, offering a strong guide for legal practitioners,

judges, and scholars involved in contract law. Structured along two

dimensions, Elements of Contract Interpretation first takes a look at

the "elements" within contract interpretation. This includes the

particular sources of evidence, the building blocks of interpretation

that the courts recognize when interpreting contracts. Such

examples include the governing contract terms; the circumstances

when the contract is made; each party's purpose; usages; and the

maxims of contract interpretation.

The second dimension is three theories of contract interpretation -

literalism, objective theory, and subjective theory. Each theory

allows a court to recognize a different set of interpretive elements,

and, in practice, how the law of different jurisdictions in the U.S.

endorse one theory or another. Since some jurisdictions combine

theories within a two- or three-step framework for analysis, this

type of law makes this book a primary resource for both

practitioners and academics.

Paperback 756 p.

GBP 35,00

€ 45,00

For some Western European legal systems the principle of good

faith has proved central to the development of their law of

contracts, while in others it has been marginalized or even rejected.

This book starts by surveying the use or neglect of good faith in

these legal systems and explaining its historical origins. The central

part of the book takes thirty situations which would, in some legal

systems, attract the application of good faith, analyses them

according to fifteen national legal systems and assesses the

practical significance of both the principle of good faith and its

relationship to other contractual and non-contractual doctrines and

forms of regulation in each situation. The book concludes by

9


explaining how European lawyers, whether from a civil or common

law background, may need to come to terms with the principle of

good faith. This was the first completed project of The Common

Core of European Private Law launched at the University of Trento.

• Germanic, Greek, French, Common Law systems and Nordic law

systems are the five main legal families treated which means that

the book will be of use to all contract lawyers interacting with these

systems • Thirty case studies are examined from the point of view

of fifteen jurisdictions with both interim and final general

comparative conclusions which means that this books offers a

wealth of original comparative law material for the contemporary

researcher • Users can learn how a national lawyer tackles a

contract case from their own particular country and then see the

same case answered from another jurisdiction which means that

the book should have significant teaching application

This examination of twelve case studies about mistake, fraud and

duties to inform reveals significant differences about how contract

law works in thirteen European legal systems and, despite the fact

that the solutions proposed are often similar, what divergent values

underlie the legal rules. Whereas some jurisdictions recognise

increasing duties to inform in numerous contracts so that the

destiny of mistake and fraud (classical defects of consent) may

appear to be uncertain, other jurisdictions continue to refuse such

duties as a general rule or fail to recognise the need to protect one

of the parties where there is an imbalance in bargaining power or

information. Avoiding preconceptions as to where and why these

differences exist, this book first examines the historical origins and

development of defects of consent, then considers the issues from

a comparative and critical standpoint.

Focuses on the way in which the law exhibits values in terms of

legal results, rather than with the doctrines and concepts the law

uses or its social results. Offers an original analysis of the

European systems covered, rather than just providing a compilation

of information on the various legal systems. Presents 12 carefully

constructed hypothetical case-studies followed by the answers of

13 European jurisdictions to these case-studies

There is a great wealth of diversity in the business tort laws of all

fifty states and the District of Columbia. In addition to the very

significant differences in the statutes of limitation, other significant

differences include: Some states have not recognized a cause of

action for negligent interference with an economic advantage.

Negligent misrepresentation in one state is limited to claims against

persons in the business of supplying information to others. One

state recognizes a cause of action for "strict responsibility

misrepresentation." Another state recognizes claims of "prima facie

tort" for wrongs that do not fit into traditional tort categories. And

these are only a few examples of the more significant differences.

EU Dumping Determinations & WTO Law

Andersen

ISBN 9789041128270

2009/01 NL Kluwer Law

Hardback 508 p.

€ 128,50

The application of the antidumping instrument by WTO members is

often controversial because of the protectionist character of these

measures where inefficient industries are protected from foreign

competition. The legal framework within the WTO has loopholes

that leave wide discretion to the investigating authorities to

determine that a product is dumped, thereby emphasizing the

protectionist nature of antidumping. The use of antidumping

becomes even more controversial when WTO members use the

antidumping tool beyond the legal scope of WTO law.

The questions raised in this book concern the EU dumping

determinations and their conformity with WTO law. This thoughtprovoking

work examines whether European Union legislation on

dumping, the practices adopted by the European Commission and

the Council, as well as the decisions by the EC courts are in

conformity with WTO law. The author's findings are particularly

relevant given the frequent use of antidumping measures by EU

authorities, especially as relates to Asian countries, and he

carefully documents areas where the EU infringes WTO law.

Enlargement of the European Union

Hardback 592 p.

€ 80,50

The development of EU enlargement has raised many thorny

issues unanticipated by the framers of the EC Treaty. A significant

upshot of these issues is that the concept of European identity –

defined in terms of such factors as culture, history and economics –

has supplanted the long-dominant theme of ‘widening and

deepening,’ particularly since the Union’s expansion has become

primarily eastward.

The major contribution of this important book lies in its analysis of

the conceptualization and perception of enlargement from various

points of view, focusing on the concerns of stakeholders and the

‘identity’ conflicts and uncertainties incurred by enlargement

initiatives. In the course of its presentation, it details the actual preaccession

Europeanization process and its complex history.

Among the key elements discussed are the following:

the conflict between ‘widening’ and ‘deepening’ and the effect on

EU institutional reform; institutional requirements on candidate

countries; pre-accession criteria and negotiations; administrative

capacity, judicial capacity, and legal approximation in accession

states; capacity of the EU to absorb new Member States; and EC

law as part of European identity.

Also covered are specific historical details of particular preaccession

negotiations (e.g., Greece, Spain, Portugal, Malta, and

Cyprus), the still inconclusive negotiations with Turkey and the

Western Balkan states, and political factors involved in the nonaccession

of Norway, Iceland and Switzerland. Assembling

powerful evidence and applying incisive analysis, the author’s

conclusion shows that, absent further (and major) EU institutional

reform, it will be difficult for an enlarging Union to continue to

‘deliver the goods.’ A watershed in the continuing great debate on

the fulfilment of the EC Treaty’s determination to foster and

promote ‘an ever closer union of the peoples of Europe,’ this book

will prove invaluable to anybody interested in the European

integration project, particularly lawyers, academics, officials and

policymakers in the EU Member States.

Europeanisation of Administrative Justice?

The Influence of the ECJ's Case Law in

Italy, Germany & England

ISBN 9789076871974

2009/01 NL Europa Law

Paperback 416 p.

€ 72,80

Some 40 years after van Gend en Loos, the impact of European

law on the administrative laws of the Member States of the

European Union has manifested itself intensely and in many

different aspects, because of the influence of both the European

Court of Justice and EC legislation. This impact is particularly

11


striking in relation to administrative law, because, as a part of

public law, administrative law had long been deemed an area of

monopoly of the State and a clear outgrowth of the State sovereign

powers that precluded interference from any other jurisdiction. As

of today, European law influences virtually all areas of substantive

administrative law, administrative organisation, decision-making

proceedings and judicial protection. Amongst those areas, this

book focuses on the influence of the European Court of Justice’s

case law on five selected aspects of the Italian, German and

English rules on the judicial review of administrative action. Taking

as a starting point the ECJ's case law on domestic remedies, the

book reports the results of an investigation as to whether, and to

what extent, the national courts have applied the standards of

protection set out in the ECJ’s case law. Furthermore, it is

investigated whether, in the areas in which a process of

Europeanisation has taken place, the ECJ’s case law has

contributed to an increasing similarity of the three legal systems.

Finally, the book discusses whether, for the purposes of ensuring

an effective judicial protection of Community rights, the rules on the

decentralised enforcement of EC law in administrative courts

should be harmonised by the European legislator

Private International Law in Israel

Einhorn

ISBN 9789041128676

2009/01 NL Kluwer Law

Paperback 396 p.

€ 101,80

Israel’s private international law (PIL) regime is not codified, nor is

it clearly traceable to any one legal system. For these reasons, this

volume serves an immensely useful purpose for foreign parties with

interests in Israel. It sets forth, in clear and comprehensive detail,

all the elements of practice necessary to protect rights or assets of

any nature of foreign aspect but likely to fall under Israeli law or

under the jurisdiction of an Israeli court.

Among the book’s many practice-oriented pointers and

clarifications the reader will find the following and more:

national and international sources of Israeli PIL; types of choice-oflaw

rules; characterization of legal matters; natural and legal

persons; contractual and non-contractual obligations; property law

(movables, immovables, trusts, cultural property) intellectual and

industrial property rights; companies organized under the civil or

commercial law of any state; insolvency; family law and

succession; scope of international jurisdiction in Israeli courts; proof

of foreign law; judicial assistance; recognition and enforcement of

foreign judgements; international arbitration; and the role of

literature and legal doctrine.

Because the style and method of legal development in Israel has

primarily followed the tradition of the common law, the author

recognizes that case law is the first place to look to find out what

Israeli law says on any given matter. Her approach is also

particularly valuable in that she does not confine her study to the

rules already existing in Israeli PIL, but establishes rules in areas

where such are missing, guided by the methods and principles

which the court and legislature would have adopted had they been

confronted with these problems.

The book will be especially useful to the many international

business people and their counsel with interests in Israel. It will

also serve as an admirable and clear statement of Israeli PIL for

academic purposes.

A Bull in China. Investing Profitably in the

World's Greatest Market

Rogers

ISBN 9780470985601

2009/01 US Wiley

Paperback 222 p.

€ 12,90

Profiting from China without getting burned is currently an

obsession with the international investment community. The

estimated size of the Chinese economy has just been revised

upwards, making it the 4th largest in the world behind the US,

Japan and Germany, and ahead of the UK but the idea that

investing in China is a sure-fire, get-rich-quick investment story is

dangerously misleading.

The author of the bestselling Investment Biker, Adventure

Capitalist, and Hot Commodities, is providing a book that provides

a window into what will soon be the most vital, most lucrative

market of our time: China. While the Chinese economy has had an

annual average growth of 9.4 percent since 1978, and despite the

ongoing speculation about China's future, its stock market is now

emerging from a six-year low. As the Chinese economy continues

to lumber toward a free market system - and as the Chinese

government inevitably unpegs its currency and opens its stock

market to more foreign investment, Rogers foresees an abundance

of opportunities for investors.

In this book, he shows readers not only how to take advantage of

China's coming dominance - what, where, how, and when to buy -

but how China will impact individual companies, markets, and

economies around the world. "Nobody with blue eyes has ever

made money investing in China," the old saying goes.

Jim Rogers aims to disprove this adage.

For the last 60 years, Saudi Arabia has assumed a vital economic

role and has been situated on the center stage of the global

economic and political scene. While the market was once

dominated by American and British firms, and later Japanese

corporations, Korean and Chinese companies have now

12


aggressively entered the market and have posed serious

challenges to entrenched multinational corporations. The Saudi

market has newly become an arena for unbridled competition. As

companies must adapt and embark on creative means to sustain

their positions in dynamic markets, multinational corporations must

also find a comprehensive approach to dealing with cultural and

political developments. Having a competitive edge demands

familiarity with market nuances and peculiarities in addition to

providing quality product and service.

Business and Management Environment in Saudi Arabia is not

primarily about how to conduct business in the region, but rather it

provides insightful information to optimally guide western managers

in conducting their operations in Saudi Arabia. The book offers

essential information to engage effectively, manage business

activities, resolve cultural understandings, and tackle appropriate

issues of group dynamics, human resource management,

managing change, and development and relations with the

government and the general public. As such, it is required reading

for both business leaders and academics alike.

Paperback 356 p.

€ 91,00

No one will deny that labour standards comprise a necessary

framework for balanced economic and social development. Yet on

a global level such balanced development has not occurred,

despite the existence of a rigorous body of international labour law

that has been active and growing for eighty years. The

implementation of this law devolves upon states; yet many states

have failed to honour it. If we are to take serious steps toward a

remedy for this situation, there is no better place to start than a

thorough, well-researched survey and analysis of existing

international labour law - its sources, its content, its historical

development, and an informed consideration of the barriers to its

full effectiveness.

This book is exactly such a resource. It provides in-depth

interpretation of the crucial International Labour Organisation (ILO)

instruments - Constitution, conventions, declarations, resolutions,

and recommendations - as well as such other sources of law as the

OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and various model

and actual corporate codes of conduct.

Among the substantive areas of labour law covered in this book are

the relationship between international labour law and economic

competition; standards on industrial relations; collective bargaining

& dispute settlement procedures; protection of trade unions;

prohibitions on enforced and child labour; promotion of equal

opportunity & treatment; time & rest provisions; wage determination

and protection; occupational health and safety provisions; special

issues on non-standard forms of employment; foreign and migrant

workers; social security provisions; maritime work

The presentation demonstrates that these rules and standards,

notwithstanding their much-maligned intrinsic legal force, do in fact

offer invaluable benchmarks to governments, judiciaries,

employers, and trade unions. The book´s combination of detailed

commentary and an overarching social policy will make it especially

valuable to legislators, human ressources managers, employers´

organizations, trade unions, jurists, and academics concerned with

the role of work in our globalised social system. This second edition

of the book by Jean-Michel Servais analyzes the potential of those

standards in a globalized world, and the necessary evolution. It

examines the actual implementation of those rules in the national

context, comparing different experiences.

GBP 24,99

Against the backdrop of ancient cultures, a communist legacy and

eventual institutional atrophy, many of the societies of Central and

Eastern Europe have pursued aggressive development trajectories

since the early 1990s. This part of Europe is now characterized by

a rising economic heterogeneity and a rapidly changing sociocultural

context, underscored by waves of restructuring,

privatization, increasing foreign direct investment and an emerging

individualism. While there has been a growing interest in the

transition economies in the past number of years, the

contemporary nature of human resource management in these

societies is not well-documented.

This long-awaited text seeks to chart the contemporary landscape

of HRM in this region. In doing this, it describes key aspects of the

transition process as experienced in each of the economies under

consideration, as well as describing key legislative and labour

market developments and reforms. Finally, it discusses key trends

in HRM policy and practice.

Retaliation & Whistleblowers: 60th Annual

New York University Conference on Labor

Secunda

ISBN 9789041127723

2009/01 NL Kluwer Law

Hardback 808 p.

€ 160,50

Each year, the New York University Annual Conference on Labor

calls on outstanding scholars and practitioners in the field to come

together to survey and analyze new developments and trends in

U.S. labor law and practice. This volume reproduces the texts

(updated and reworked by the authors) presented at the 2007

Conference, the 60th in this venerable and highly influential series,

at which the theme was “Retaliation and Whistleblowers.”

There could not be a more timely exploration of this complex

workplace issue. The United States Supreme Court, in several

pending cases and in the recent landmark cases of Burlington

Northern v. White and Garcetti v. Ceballos, has turned its full

attention to workplace retaliation claims. States and municipalities

also continue to struggle in laying out the scope of permissible

claims under state constitutional and statutory whistleblower

provisions and under the common law of wrongful discharge.

Among the new and significant issues considered in this volume

are the following:

new limits on the scope of the cause of action in the wake of

Burlington Northern; implied protection of employee activity under

ADEA and the FLSA; the scope of “protected activity” under § 806

of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act; issues of privilege when investigation

counsel are used to inform corporate decision-making; state

whistleblower laws and the expansion or preemption of common

law protections under the common law tort of wrongful discharge;

NLRA protection of collective protests by non-union workers; and

potential expansion of the formal definition of “jobs” under Garcetti

v. Ceballos to foreclose the first amendment avenue.

Besides papers by panelists at the Conference, ten other leading

practitioners and academics also provide commentary in this

volume. As always, this important annual publication offers

definitive current scholarship in its theme area of labor and

employment law. As such, it will be of inestimable value to

practitioners, government officials, academics. and others

interested in developments in U.S. employment and labor relations

law and practice.

What is the current and future role of international environmental

law in directing and controlling the conduct of business enterprises,

particularly multinational corporations? This book responds to this

question by identifying corporate accountability standards and

discussing their implementation by international organizations.

This is the first book to examine systematically all international

sources of corporate accountability standards with specific

reference to environmental protection and to elaborate on their

theoretical and practical implications for international environmental

law. The book argues that although international environmental law

does not bind multinational corporations and other business

entities, growing international practice points to the emergence of

legal standards. These standards allow adapting and translating

inter-State obligations embodied in international environmental law

into specific normative benchmarks to determine the legitimacy of

the conduct of the private sector against internationally recognized

values and rules.

The role of international organizations that, in the absence of State

intervention, identify and promote the application of selected

international environmental standards is analysed in depth. This

analysis demonstrates how these international organizations are a

driving force in establishing and operationalizing international

standards for corporate environmental accountability.

The relevance of the WTO legal system for environmental

protection is a central topic in general international law, WTO law

and international environmental law. The relationship between

WTO law and international and domestic efforts to protect the

environment has moved to centre stage in WTO and international

environmental law. It has also spurred the discussion on

fragmentation in international law in recent years.

This book analyses these issues by examining the 'horizontal'

interaction between WTO law and 'other' international law, the

'vertical' relationship between WTO law and domestic law, and the

contents and the interrelations between fundamental provisions of

WTO law. This study relies on established insights from legal

theory in order to achieve greater clarity in legal argumentation.

The main results of this analysis are applied to two topical

instances of international regime interplay, namely the relevance of

WTO law for international and domestic measures protecting the

earth's climate and the ozone layer.

A series of controversial topics in WTO and general international

law are addressed in this book, including the notion of conflicts of

norms, and the resolution of conflicts of norms; the role of

international law in WTO proceedings; extraterritorial jurisdiction

and unilateral trade measures; proportionality and balancing of

interests in international and WTO law; the core disciplines of the

GATT and the TBT Agreement; process and production-based

measures (PPMs) in WTO law; climate protection, protection of the

ozone layer, and WTO disciplines

The first IVF baby was born in the 1970s. Less than 20 years later,

we had cloning and GM food, and information and communication

technologies had transformed everyday life. In 2000, the human

genome was sequenced. More recently, there has been much

discussion of the economic and social benefits of nanotechnology,

and synthetic biology has also been generating controversy.

This important volume is a timely contribution to increasing calls for

regulation - or better regulation - of these and other new

technologies. Drawing on an international team of legal scholars, it

reviews and develops the role of human rights in the regulation of

new technologies. Three controversies at the intersection between

human rights and new technology are given particular attention.

First, how the expansive application of human rights could

contribute to the creation of a brave new world of choice, where

human dignity is fundamentally compromised; second, how new

technologies, and our regulatory responses to them, could be a

threat to human rights; and, third, how human rights could be used

to create better regulation of these technologies.

This edition captures recent changes in case law and legislation,

policies and rules of patent law. It teaches the far-reaching legal

tenets of patent law that are as venerable as the Constitution itself

and yet as current as the latest developments from the laboratory

bench. Like its predecessor, it draws on insights from other areas

of U.S. law as well as from aspects of foreign systems. Because

patent law plays a vital role in the international marketplace,

students must understand U.S. law in the context of international

patent systems.

As the importance of technology-based products and processes

continues to increase, so too does the significance of patents.

Patents are extremely powerful – they provide invaluable market

exclusivity to their owners and present a potential barrier to third

parties’ freedom to operate. Unsurprisingly, therefore, patentrelated

disputes are becoming more common and their

consequences more significant than ever. Likewise, globalisation

means that patent disputes must increasingly be managed on an

international rather than local level.

However, the lack of a harmonised patent dispute resolution

system across the major jurisdictions means that this is not a

simple exercise. Actions taken in one jurisdiction can have

unforeseen consequences in another; the time taken in the various

jurisdictions to reach a conclusion can vary considerably; and the

measures and remedies available differ from country to country.

This major new title by leading practitioners is a practical guide to

patent litigation (and alternatives, if available) in a selection of key

jurisdictions. It covers the timescale of proceedings, the availability

of interim relief, disclosure, available remedies and costs, among

other crucial factors. The book provides a useful comparison of

how each jurisdiction deals with the issues that arise and the

practical consequences of litigating in each location. This

comparison is designed to assist those involved in international

patent litigation in devising an effective strategy to manage the

litigation and so maximise the chances of a successful outcome,

while also reducing unnecessary costs.

The book is a concise, practical guide for all those involved in the

conduct and management of international patent litigation, from inhouse

professionals (patent managers, patent attorneys and

general counsel) to those in private practice.

The question of governance of the Internet is increasing in

significance. The United Nations' World Summit on the Information

Society, held in two phases in 2003 and 2005, provoked heated

debate, and the resultant meetings of the Internet Governance

Forum that followed this have been the subject of growing public

and media interest. Yet governance of the Internet is multifaceted,

complex, and far from transparent, and there has been little written

about the subject which is detailed, systematic, and non-polemical.

This book focuses on the issues involved in the ongoing

development of Internet governance, and the challenges

associated with developing and applying governance structures at

a global level based on bottom-up, consensus-seeking decisionmaking

procedures, without direct foundation in a treaty framework.

Leading academics and practitioners studying and working in

the area of Internet governance explore such issues as how the

engineering of infrastructure matters, how legitimacy is gained and

retained by governance organizations, and whether elements of

such organizations can provide a model for other organizations to

emulate. They examine the tensions inherent in Internet

16


governance, such as government control versus digital

libertarianism; commercialism versus civil society ideals; interests

of developed countries versus interests of developing countries.

The book will be of interest to academics, researchers, and

students of Information and Communications Technology, legal

aspects of ICT, and Organization Studies, as well as legal

practitioners, government bodies, NGOs, and others concerned

with Internet governance.

International GAAP 2009 is written from a global perspective. It

does not have the jurisdictional bias that is present in other

publications. It is not constrained by any individual country's

legislation or financial reporting regulations, and it ensures an

international consistency of approach unavailable elsewhere. It

shows how difficult practical issues should be approached in the

new complex global world of international financial reporting, where

IFRSs have become the accepted financial reporting system in

more than 100 countries. This integrated approach provides a

unique level of authoritative material for anyone involved in

preparing, interpreting or auditing company accounts, for

regulators, academic researchers and for all students of

accountancy.

The International Financial Reporting Group of Ernst & Young

includes financial reporting specialists from throughout the world.

Complex technical accounting issues are explained clearly in a

practical working context that enables immediate understanding of

the point at issue.

International GAAP 2009 is accompanied by numerous worked

examples, a comprehensive discussion of the practical issues of

the day and the possible alternative solutions available, and

hundreds of practical illustrations taken from the actual financial

statements of companies that report under IFRSs.

All aspects of the detailed requirements of IFRS are dealt with on a

topic-by-topic basis. Each chapter of International GAAP 2009

deals with a key area of IFRS and has a common structure for

ease of use: Introduction to the background issues. An explanation

of relevant principles. A clear exposition of the requirements of

IFRS. A discussion of the implications in practice and possible

alternative solutions available. Worked examples. Extracts from

real company accounts. A full listing of the required disclosures.

€ 117,65

The swift developments within the financial markets over the last

20-30 years conflict with traditional property law structures and

have caused a great degree of legal uncertainty. This book

evaluates the requirement for specificity as a criterion for property

rights in securities evidenced by electronic entries made on

securities accounts. Three principal questions are examined: i)

reuse of financial collateral and the problems arising from the

collateral-taker’s right to reuse the collateral; ii) characterisation of

repos; and iii) the question of property rights in securities that are

unallocated in relation to their entitlement holders. The analysis is

made from the perspective of specificity and the requirement that

the object of a property right must be identified. English, US and

Swedish law are compared with the aim of finding viable solutions

to the identified problems.

Hardback 294 p.

GBP 50,00

€ 42,80

Does globalization erode the nation state's capacity to act? Are

nation states forced to change their policies even if this goes

against the democratic will of their electorates? How does

government action change under conditions of globalization?

Questions like these have not only featured highly in political

debates in recent years, but also in academic discourse. This book

seeks to contribute to that debate. The general question it

addresses is whether globalization leads to policy convergence -- a

central, but contested topic in the debate, as theoretical arguments

can be advanced both in favour of and against the likelihood of

such a development. More specifically, the book contains detailed

empirical case studies of four countries (the United States, the

United Kingdom, Germany, and Switzerland) in a policy area where

state action has been particularly challenged by the emergence of

world-wide, around-the-clock financial markets in the last few

decades, namely that of the regulation and supervision of the

banking industry.

Based on careful analysis of historical developments, specific

challenges, the character of policy networks and institutions, and

their interaction in the political process, this book argues that nation

states still possess considerable room for manouevre in pursuing

their policies. Even if they choose supranational coordination and

cooperation, their national institutional configurations still function

as filters in the globalization process.

This book is of particular value to readers interested in the politics

and policies of globalization, the interaction of business

communities and the political system in different countries, and

students of comparative politics interested in detailed case studies

of policy-making.

A new era of global banking and insurance is emerging, with

leading banks eager to serve international markets. This book

explores the issues that arise for banks in their strategic choices as

they move into these new international markets.

This book challenges conventional assumptions from the

international management literature on topics such as the limits of

globalization, the importance of cultural and institutional distance,

the nature of economies of scale and scope, the existence of first

mover advantages, the logic behind the global value chain

configuration, the speed and timing of market entry, as well as

organizational architecture. It focuses on fundamental strategic

decisions such as when, where, and how to enter foreign markets

and how to design the organizational architecture of the

multinational financial services firm.

Using simple theoretical frameworks illustrated by case examples,

this book provides a thorough guide to the challenges of the

international market for financial services firms, both for those

working in the financial services industry, and researchers studying

the area.

Competition in a Consolidating

Hardback 128 p.

€ 85,55

Competition between market centers is a driving force for

innovation, dynamic growth, and reasonable pricing structures.

Consolidating the order flow amasses liquidity, sharpens price

discovery, and lowers trading costs. Can competition remain

vibrant in a consolidated environment? How does inter-market

competition play out with respect to trading decisions and listing

decisions? What will the primary sources of competition be in the

future? What impacts will follow from the NYSE's acquisition of

Archipelago, and NASDAQ's acquisition of Inet? Will exchanges

further consolidate in Europe? What does consolidation imply

about the efficient use of technology, the effective handling of

institutional order flow, and overall market quality? These are some

of the questions that were addressed at the conference and

elaborated on in this book.

The Zicklin School of Business Financial Markets Series presents

the insights emerging from a sequence of conferences hosted by

the Zicklin School at Baruch College for industry professionals,

regulators, and scholars. Much more than historical documents, the

transcripts from the conferences are edited for clarity, perspective

and context; material and comments from subsequent interviews

with the panelists and speakers are integrated for a complete

thematic presentation. Each book is focused on a well delineated

topic, but all deliver broader insights into the quality and efficiency

of the U.S. equity markets and the dynamic forces changing them.

Fool's Gold? The Truth Behind Angel

Investing in America

Paperback 288 p.

GBP 18,99

The stereotype of the "angel investor" is a retired wealthy

entrepreneur who sees potential, asks tough questions, takes a

large stake, and in a few years makes a massive return in an IPO.

This outsider fills the gap between the venture capitalist and the

professional investor, swooping in with cash and expertise to bring

dreams to fruition.

Unfortunately, Shane observes, this figure bears no relationship to

reality. In Fool's Gold, he draws on hard data from the Federal

Reserve and other sources to paint the first reliable group portrait

of the lionized angel investors. Surprisingly, he finds that they are

fewer, contribute less, and involve themselves in fewer start-ups

than the conventional wisdom suggests. Most angels typically still

have their day jobs, make investments of $10,000 or less, and take

little or no role in assisting entrepreneurs build their companies.

Few of the companies they put money into arrive at IPOs, let alone

massive returns. But angels can play a critical role, he writes, if the

fantasy is abandoned by all concerned. Drawing on his rich store of

data, Shane offers recommendations to entrepreneurs and angels

alike for the most productive use of angel investing, and suggests

how policymakers can encourage it. Particularly promising are

angel groups, which pool knowledge and money for wiser and

more productive investments. In groups, angels can rely on each

other's expertise, share the labor of performing due diligence, and

generally insure that their money is being placed - and used -

wisely. Fostering the formation of such groups may be the single

most important thing that government can do to boost angel

investing.

Massively researched and briskly written, Fools' Gold offers the first

real resource on this misunderstood aspect of our entrepreneurial

system.

Hardback 520 p.

When investments don’t live up to their promise, the situation is

typically due to several factors. In most cases, the key reasons are

a combination of the place of investment, the product, and the

selection of detrimental tax planning measures. Often, international

tax planning tips the scales regarding the success of a U.S.

investment in Europe. This timely book analyzes concepts and

structures that can be used as a “construction kit,” applying

combinations of basic tools to meet the challenges of an everchanging

global tax environment. In the wake of globalization, a

host of new tax planning opportunities is available to investors.

Techniques designed to legally reduce the relevant tax burden

have simultaneously become more sophisticated and easier.

Consequently this work analyzes concepts, risks, limits of tax

planning, and introduces a model that allows tax professionals to

structure and continuously re-evaluate their tax planning. Instead of

relocating entire companies to other countries, firms can reduce

their tax liability using the techniques and measures of tax planning

described in the model.

The overall goal of the work is to analyze the problem of

repatriating U.S. profits from Europe under an integrated and

holistic approach, going far beyond the routing of income via

different companies. Instead, the approach includes an analysis of

the interdependencies between international tax competition,

holding company regimes, and tax planning concepts in order to

establish a basis for tax planning measures regardless of the fast

changing legal environment for holding companies in the different

countries.

Transfer Pricing & Corporate Taxation

ISBN 9780387781822

2009/01 DSpringer

Hardback 194 p.

€ 74,85

Transfer pricing is often identified as the most important tax issue

that multinational corporations face. This publication is an

extremely useful tool for practitioners and tax directors grappling

with complex and contentious transfer pricing issues of various

kinds. It contains a series of highly detailed case studies, which

draw on the author's two decades as a government economist

specializing in transfer pricing and valuation, a transfer pricing

economist with Price Waterhouse, and, lastly, an independent

consultant. These case studies elucidate the types of intercompany

transactions that tax authorities often scrutinize, lay out how one

should go about analyzing such transactions under the existing

regulatory regime in considerable detail, and illustrate a number of

proposed alternative approaches that could substantially reduce

compliance costs and the frequency of transfer pricing disputes.

Practitioners and tax directors will find the case studies extremely

helpful in formulating defensible transfer pricing policies. The case

studies may also be useful in assessing tax exposure attributable

to intercompany pricing practices, as required under FASB

Interpretation No. 48 (FIN 48). Tax policy analysts will find the

evaluation and critique of existing methods and the development of

alternative proposals thought-provoking and compelling.

The book is divided into three parts: Part I contains a detailed

review and critique of individual transfer pricing methods and the

economic premises that underpin them. Part II contains a

discussion of proposed alternative transfer pricing methods. Part III

contains the aforementioned series of eight case studies,

encompassing a broad range of transfer pricing issues. Global

21


trading and certain types of Internet-based businesses, which the

current transfer pricing regime does not adequately address, are

among the issues covered. Each case study is analyzed under

both the existing transfer pricing regime and one or more proposed

methods.
