Lex Maritima

Author: Andreas Maurer
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 3161517814
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Law

English summary: Largely unnoticed by the law, the maritime trade sector has developed private mechanisms of norm-making, adjudication, and enforcement which can be called transnational law. In this context especially the participation of stakeholders provides legitimation of privately made norms and standards in international maritime trade. German description: In der Rechtswissenschaft werden unter den Stichworten aNeue Lex Mercatoria und aTransnationales Recht seit Jahrzehnten Konzepte eines globalisierten Rechts jenseits des Nationalstaats diskutiert. Weitgehend unbeachtet von derartigen Debatten hat die Seehandelsbranche aufgrund ihrer eigenen Internationalitat die Globalisierung bereits seit langem tatsachlich vollzogen. Der grenzuberschreitende Seehandel hat dabei Institutionen im Bereich von Rechtsetzung, Rechtsprechung und Rechtsdurchsetzung entwickelt, die aufgrund privater Setzung ein transnationales Seehandelsrecht begrunden. Regeln entstehen dabei in Verfahren, die unter breiter Beteiligung von allen Interessentragern des Seehandels zustande kommen. Diese dienen als Beispiel fur die Legitimation eines transnationalen Rechts, das mit staatlichem Recht interagiert und so einen hybriden Rechtskorper - eine Lex Maritima - bildet.
