<p>This book gathers international and national reports from across the globe on key questions in the field of antitrust and intellectual property.</p><p>The first part discusses the application of competition law in the pharmaceutical sector, which continues to be a focus for anti-trust authorities around the world. A detailed international report explores the extent to which the application of the competition rules in the pharmaceutical sector should be affected by the specific characteristics of those products and markets (including consumer protection rules, the need to promote innovation, the need to protect public budgets, and other public interest considerations). It provides an excellent comparative study of this complex subject, which lies at the interface between competition law and intellectual property law.</p><p>The second part of the book gathers contributions from various jurisdictions on the topic of “What rules should govern claims by suppliers about the national or geographic origin of their goods or services?” This section presents an international report, which offers an unparalleled comparative analysis of this topic, bringing together common themes and contrasting the various national provisions dealing with indications of origin, amongst other things.</p><p>The book also includes the resolutions passed by the General Assembly of the International League of Competition Law (LIDC) following a debate on each of these topics, which include proposed solutions and recommendations. The LIDC is a long-standing international association that focuses on the interface between competition law and intellectual property law, including unfair competition issues.</p><div></div><div><p></p></div>

The defences available to an agent accused of wrongdoing can be considered as justifications (which render acts lawful) or excuses (which shield the agent from the legal consequences of the wrongful act). This distinction is familiar to many domestic legal systems, and tracks analogous notions in moral philosophy and ordinary language. Nevertheless, it remains contested in some domestic jurisdictions where it is often argued that the distinction is purely theoretical and has no consequences in practice. In international law too the distinction has been fraught with controversy, though there are increasing calls for its recognition. This book is the first to comprehensively and thoroughly examine the distinction and its relevance to the international legal order. Combining an analysis of State practice, historical, doctrinal and theoretical developments, the book shows that the distinction is not only possible in international law but that it is also one that would have important practical implications.

Dit werk bevat de bijdragen aan het Notarieel Congres 2017. Elk van de auteurs benadert van uit zijn/haar  professionele specialiteit, één van de vele aspecten van de maatschappelijke tendensen. Rond de slogan ‘Opening Doors’ openen zij voor u letterlijk en figuurlijk de deuren naar alternatieve vormen van (samen)wonen. Daarbij denken zij na over de woonvormen in het verleden, het heden en in de toekomst: juridisch, maatschappelijk,  theoretisch en praktisch. Termen als “cohousing” en “kangoeroewonen” klinken niet meer vreemd in de oren. Er is echter meer: volumepercelen, stapeling van eigendomsrechten, community land trust, enzovoort. Een maatschappelijk relevante en vooral toekomstgerichte visie op onze (samen)woningsvormen die tegemoetkomen aan de wensen en noden van elke burger, rekening houdende met de economische, financiële en familiale realiteit(en), is bij de auteurs de rode draad doorheen hun bijdragen. De auteurs, allen specialisten binnen hun werkterrein (academisch, notariaat, advocatuur, deskundigen), Frans- en Nederlandstalig, gaan deze uitdaging met de nodige ambitie en vastberadenheid, graag aan.   ++++ Cet ouvrage rassemble les acties  du Congrès des Notaires 2017. Les auteurs traitent, chacun en fonction de sa spécialité professionnelle, un des nombreux aspects des tendances de la société. Sous le slogan ‘Opening Doors’, ils vous ouvriront les portes des formes alternatives de (co)habitation, tant au sens propre que figuré. À cet effet, ils aborderont les différentes formes d’habitation d’antan, les actuelles et celles à l’avenir : et ce, d’un point de vue juridique, social, théorique et pratique. Les termes « cohousing » et « l’habitation kangourou » ne nous sont pas inconnus. En revanche, d’autres termes le sont bien : propriétés par volumes, superposition de droits de propriété, community land trust, etc. Les auteurs ont axé leurs travaux sur une vision pertinente de nos formes de (co)habitation avec les perspectives d’avenir possibles. Celles-ci devraient répondre aux desideratas et besoins de tout citoyen, compte tenu des réalités économiques, financières et familiales. Les auteurs, tous spécialistes dans leur domaine (monde académique, notariat, barreau, experts), tant francophones que néerlandophones, sont ravis de relever ce défi avec l’ambition et la détermination nécessaires.

In the international trade and development arena, new and developing economies have created a block that is known as BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Initially conceived to drive global change through economic growth, the financial crisis and reversal of fortunes of the BRICS nations have raised questions about their ability to have an impact on the governance of global affairs. This book explores the role of law in various areas of BRICS cooperation including: trade, investment, competition, intellectual property, energy, consumer protection, financial services, space exploration and legal education. It not only covers the specifics of each of the BRICS nations in the selected areas, but also offers innovative and forward-looking perspectives on the BRICS cooperation and their contribution to the reform of the global governance networks. This is a unique reference book suitable for academics, government officials, legal practitioners, business executives, researchers and students.

The advent of the principle of popular sovereignty during the French Revolution inspired an unintended but momentous change in international law. Edward James Kolla explains that between 1789 and 1799, the idea that peoples ought to determine their fates in international affairs, just as they were taking power domestically in France, inspired a series of new and interconnected claims to territory. Drawing on case studies from Avignon, Belgium, the Rhineland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Italy, Kolla traces how French revolutionary diplomats and leaders gradually applied principles derived from new domestic political philosophy and law to the international stage. Instead of obtaining land via dynastic inheritance or conquest in war, the will of the people would now determine the title and status of territory. However, the principle of popular sovereignty also opened up new justifications for aggressive conquest, and this history foreshadowed some of the most controversial questions in international relations today.

What does justice demand in international trade regulation? And how far does World Trade Organization (WTO) law respond to those demands? Whether our focus is developing countries, struggling industries, or environmental protection, distributive conflict is a pervasive feature of international economic law. Despite this, we lack an adequate theory of distributive justice for this domain. Drawing on philosophical approaches to global justice, this book advances a novel theory of justice in trade regulation, and applies this to explain and critique the law of the WTO. Integrating theoretical and doctrinal approaches, it demonstrates the potential for political theory to illuminate and inform the progressive development of WTO law, including rules on border measures, discrimination, trade remedies and domestic regulation. Written from an interdisciplinary perspective, accessible to lawyers, philosophers and political scientists, the book will appeal both to theorists interested in building bridges from theory to practice, and practitioners seeking new perspectives on existing problems.
Sovereign Debt Crises: What Have We Learned?

There is an obvious need to learn more about why some countries succeed and others fail when dealing with debt crises. Why do some sovereign debtors overcome economic problems very quickly and at minor human rights costs for their people, while others remain trapped by debts for years struggling with overwhelming debt burdens and exacerbating economic problems and human suffering? This book analyzes fourteen unique or singular country cases of sovereign debt problems that differ characteristically from the 'ordinary' debtor countries, and have not yet received enough or proper attention - some regarded as successful, some as unsuccessful in dealing with debt crises. The aim is to contribute to a better understanding of the policy options available to countries struggling with debt problems, or how to resolve a debt overhang while protecting human rights, the Rule of Law and the debtor's economic recovery.

Global lawmaking by international organizations holds the potential for enormous influence over world trade and national economies. Representatives from states, industries, and professions produce laws for worldwide adoption in an effort to alter state lawmaking and commercial behaviors, whether of giant multi-national corporations or micro, small and medium-sized businesses. Who makes that law and who benefits affects all states and all market players. Global Lawmakers offers the first extensive empirical study of commercial lawmaking within the United Nations. It shows who makes law for the world, how they make it, and who comes out ahead. Using extensive and unique data, the book investigates three episodes of lawmaking between the late 1990s and 2012. Through its original socio-legal orientation, it reveals dynamics of competition, cooperation and competitive cooperation within and between international organizations, including the UN, World Bank, IMF and UNIDROIT, as these IOs craft international laws. Global Lawmakers proposes an original theory of international organizations that seek to construct transnational legal orders within social ecologies of lawmaking. The book concludes with an appraisal of creative global governance by the UN in international commerce over the past fifty years and examines prospective challenges for the twenty-first century.

This book shows how the current reform in investment regulation is part of a broader attempt to transform the international economic order. Countries in the North and South are currently rethinking how economic order should be constituted in order to advance their national interests and preferred economic orientation. While some countries in the North seek to create alternative institutional spaces in order to promote neoliberal policies more effectively, some countries in the South are increasingly skeptical of this version of economic order and are experimenting with alternative versions of legal ordering that do not always sit well with mainstream versions promoted by the North. While we recognize that there are differences in approaches to the investment regimes proposed by countries in the South, we identify commonalities that could function as the founding pillars of an alternative economic order.
