OUVRAGE : M. Bussani, L. Heckendorn Urscheler (eds.), Comparisons in Legal Development: The Impact of Foreign and International Law on National Legal Systems


Legal development may happen slowly, but law never stands still. Among the many factors having an impact on legal development, the influence of foreign and international patterns, although often controversial, is not questionable. But to what extent do foreign and international laws actually affect (the different paths of) legal development? The book aims to provide an answer to this question through different perspectives – from human rights and environmental law to commercial and contract law – and in different geographical contexts – from Europe to Africa, from Asia to Latin America.
