    !!! New Paper by Prof. P.G. Monateri: "The Equivalence of Political and Economic Allocations" - Cardozo Accepted Papers Series

    Title: The Equivalence of Political and Economic Allocations
    Author: P.G. Monateri
    The aim of this paper is to analyse what does it happen when we introduce “violence”, threats and self-help, into economic models. This will be done considering the alternative between a market or a political allocation. The conclusions will be:

    a) That under standard assumptions there is no difference between a market allocation and a political allocation; and so that there is no inner superiority in a market allocation in comparison with a political one.

    b) That if we move away from these standard assumptions, then the only real economic problem becomes a “political” problem, and that there cannot be efficient conclusions which are independent from an initial allocation of force and resources.

    Number of Pages in PDF File: 10
    Keywords: Law and Economics, Economic Allocation, Property Rights, Violence, Blackmail, Political, Coase, International Relations, Efficiency, Social Cost.

    The new website about comparative law, by Professor Arroyo!

    Dear Colleagues,

    It is my pleasure to invite you to visit the new website of our Academy on

    In addition to the information concerning the Academy, its members, and all our activities, you will find also a multi-blog with four sections: case law, legislative reform, doctrine and academic events. I hope that the multi-blog, as well as the "news" tab will be very dynamic.

    International Economic Law and the Challenges of Global Inequality - CTLS Academic Annual Conference 2015 17-18 April 2015

    Academic Annual Conference 2015

    International Economic Law
    and the Challenges of Global Inequality


    CTLS Academic Annual Conference 2015
    17-18 April 2015 :: Moot Court Room :: Somerset House East Wing

    Somerset House
    Increasing economic inequality within and between countries is one of the greatest intellectual and policy challenges of our time. From social movements such as ‘Occupy Wall Street’, ‘We are the 99%’, and the ‘Indignados’, to new treatises including Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty First Century, inequality is centre-stage when we think about the world’s present social and economic condition. The promise of shared prosperity that underwrote economic liberalisation a generation ago remains elusive. Although a few have yielded great benefits from a global economy, many have seen their income stagnate or decline. In many rich countries economic opportunities for youth are bleaker than those of their parents, shattering assumptions of trans-generational progress and social mobility.

    These dramatic changes were ushered in by a model of economic liberalization structured at the global and domestic levels by law and regulation. The CTLS Academic Annual Conference will explore whether and how international economic law has helped shaped the current conditions of inequality and whether it might help shape solutions. The conference will focus on four main areas: trade, investment, labour, and tax. The conference will also explore interactions between the different fields and how they may illuminate similar problems from different angles.

    Key questions include:
    • constraints in capacity of the State to regulate economic and social policy;
    • global regulatory competition in tax, labour, and investment law;
    • global initiatives to address collective action problems;
    • asymmetry of global movement of capital and labour;
    • critiques of the State as the best entity to promote welfare.
    Convenors: Cian Murphy (King’s College London) & Alvaro Santos (Georgetown University).

    Speakers include: Yuri Biondi (Crns - ESCP Europe), Liam Campling (Queen Mary University of London), Simon Deakin (Cambridge University), Julio Faundez (Warwick University), Susan Franck (Washington and Lee University), Robert Howse (New York University), Ann Mumford (King’s College London), Ann O’Connell (University of Melbourne), Federico Ortino (King’s College London), David Quentin (Stone King), Kerry Rittich (University of Toronto), David Schneiderman (University of Toronto), Hila Shamir (Tel Aviv University), Fiona Smith (Warwick University), Robert Wai (Osgoode Hall).

    Space at the conference is extremely limited. To request a place please register via EventBrite and our conference support team will be in touch.

    Venue Information

    The conference will take place in the Moot Court Room, Somerset House East Wing, at King's College London's Strand Campus. Please arrive at the Somerset House East Wing reception and you will be directed to the conference venue.

    Founded in 2008, the Center for Transnational Legal Studies is a global partnership of leading law faculties with a shared commitment to addressing pressing problems of transnational law and governance.

    Legal pluralism in Europe and the ordre public exception: normative and judicial perspectives - International Workshop - 16 and 17 April 2015, Trento

    The International Workshop draws its inspiration from the circumstance of several countries in Europe experiencing a growing number of cases in which individuals (mainly immigrants) claim to have a series of family and personal matters regulated by the law of their country of origin, under international private law.
    In so far as this foreign law corresponds to – or is largely influenced by – Islamic law (or other religious law), domestic legal systems in Europe face the problem of reviewing the compatibility of such religiously inspired foreign law with domestic (and European) fundamental rights standards, mainly by applying the public policy (ordre public) exception which prevents the administrative application or the judicial enforcement of foreign law or foreign judicial or administrative decisions that are qualified as incompatible.
    The International Workshop aims at considering the current attitude shown  by  the judiciary in legal systems strongly influenced by Islamic law as well as in some European states, while ultimately focusing  on whether a shared European ordre public exception in the field of family law is emerging in case law.

    Full description of the event: here and here.

    New issue of the German Law Journal!

     New issue of the German Law Journal
    - the first to appear in 2015.

    Throughout the Journal's sixteen years, time and again, we have delivered on our broad mandate:  "Review of Developments in German, European and International Jurisprudence."  But we have seldom be so comprehensive in a single issue.  Here we present you with excellent scholarship from each of those fields.

    And we continue our tradition of timely and thoghtful commentary on the most important recent developments with a remarkable "special section" on the CJEU's controversial Opinion 2/13.

    It is another excellent issue.  We hope it makes a contribution to your engagement with the diverese issues covered.  We also hope it inspires you to contribute your work to the GLJ for publication.  We understand very well that the Journal's first purpose is to provide an effective and dynamic platform for the work of scholars.  For that reason, the GLJ is - and always has been - an online/open-access scholarly forum.  Your articles, commentary, notes and reviews will benefit from exposure to the Journal's large readership (each published text receives an average of 500 views in the first month of publication) and the Journla's established reputation (it is placed #1 and #2 in the relevant impact-factor rankings).

    There are other profound services the GLJ offers it authors.  The peer-review board often offers thoughful feeback.  And the student editors invest themselves in each accepted text, offering native-language style edits, formatting the content for publicaiton, and aligning the citations with the Journal's style-guide.  The student editors' contribution to this important project is especially on my mind as we publish this issue because it is the time of year when the current team, in preparation for graduation in a few weeks, hands it responsibilities to a new group of editors.  I want to take this opportunity - on behalf of the all those connected with the Journal (editors and authors and readers) - to thank them for their dedication and committment.  This is particularly true of the outgoing chief editor of the student team, Brenna Duncan.  Working from here in the Virginia countryside, Brenna and the other W&L students are an absolutely esstential and tireless, but too-often unremarked, part of the the Journal's success.  For all of that - I hope you'll join me in thanking them.
