This book provides a philosophical critique of legal relations between the EU and 'distant strangers' neither located within nor citizens of, its Member States. Beginning with the EU's commitment in Articles 3(5) and 21 TEU to advance democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in 'all its relations with the wider world', Ganesh examines in detail the salient EU and international legal materials and thereafter critiques them in the light of a theory of just global legal relations derived from Kant's Philosophy of Right. The book departs from comparable Kant-EU scholarship by not taking the essay Toward Perpetual Peace as the starting point for discussion, but by engaging closely with Doctrine of Right, Kant's final and comprehensive statement of his general theory of law. The book thus sheds light on areas of EU law (EU external relations law, standing to bring judicial review), public international law (jurisdiction, global public goods), and human rights ('human rights jurisdiction'), and also critiques the widespread identification of the EU as a Kantian federation of peace.

More Details..

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of an often neglected, misunderstood and maligned source of international law. Article 38(1)(c) of the Statute of the International Court of Justice sets out that the Court will apply the 'general principles of law recognized by civilized nations'. This source is variously lauded and criticised: held up as a panacea to all international law woes or denied even normative validity. The contrasting views and treatments of General Principles stem from a lack of a model of the source itself. This book provides that model, offering a new and rigorous understanding of Article 38(1)(c) that will be of immense value to scholars and practitioners of international law alike. At the heart of the book is a new tetrahedral framework of analysis - looking to function, type, methodology and jurisprudential legitimacy. Adopting an historical approach, the book traces the development of the source from 1875 to 2019, encompassing jurisprudence of the Permanent Court of International Justice and the International Court of Justice as well as cases from international criminal tribunals, the International Criminal Court and the World Trade Organisation. The book argues for precision in identifying cases that actually apply General Principles, and builds upon these 'proper use' cases to advance a comprehensive model of General Principles, advocating for a global approach to the methodology of the source.

More Details..

This volume analyses, for the first time in European studies, the impact that non-legally binding material (otherwise known as soft law) has on national courts and administration. The study is founded on empirical work undertaken by the European Network of Soft Law Research (SoLaR), across ten EU Member States, in competition policy, financial regulation, environmental protection and social policy. The book demonstrates that soft law is taken into consideration at the national level and it clarifies the extent to which soft law can have legal and practical effects for individuals and national authorities. The national case studies highlight the points of convergence or divergence in the way in which judges and administrators approach soft law, while reflecting on the reasons for and consequences of various national practices. A series of horizontal studies connect this research to the rich literature on new modes of governance, by revisiting traditional theories on soft law, and by reflecting on the potential of such instruments to undermine or to foster rule of law values.

This book offers a comprehensive examination of the issues surrounding corporate compliance. Corporate compliance standards are often the subject of significant public debate. Recent media scrutiny of the tax strategies of complex multinationals revealed that, notwithstanding prior scandals such as Enron, Worldcom and Parmalat, corporations continue to adopt compliance practices that, whilst technically legal, fundamentally undermine the intention (or spirit) of the law. However, the question of corporate compliance is not simply a matter of fiscal policy but goes to the core of our understanding of corporate responsibility within society. As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, and as we continue to bear witness, these matters remain of fundamental and pressing importance. Yet why is it that technical compliance is so widely rejected by society yet so widely adopted and defended by corporate actors? Why is it that regulatory responses to each corporate scandal seem unable to prevent future transgressions? Why is it that otherwise law-abiding citizens act contrary to their personal values when making compliance decisions within a corporation? In this book, Dr Donovan responds to these questions by providing a persuasive argument for the legitimate role of spirited compliance within a market economy. In doing so, she employs the lens of classical liberal ideology, challenging the widespread view that technical compliance is simply 'capitalism.' However, finding a normative foundation for spirited compliance only addresses one part of the problem. In an examination that has relevance beyond the compliance arena, the author also explores why and how corporate architecture contributes to the often atypical decisions that individuals make when acting within a corporate environment. The book draws upon behavioural psychology to answer this question and offers insights into how the often-elusive goal of corporate behavioural change can be achieved.
