Non Contractual Liability Arising out of Damage Caused to Another

Genre: Law

"Non-contractual liability arising out of damage caused to another" is one of the three main non-contractual obligations dealt with in the DCFR. The law of non-contractual liability arising out of damage caused to another (in the Common Law known as tort law or the law of torts, but in most other jurisdictions referred to as the law of delict) is the area of law which determines whether one who has suffered a damage can on that account demand reparation (in money or in kind) from another with whom there may be no other legal connection than the causation of damage itself. Besides determining the scope and extent of responsibility for dangers of one's own or another's creation, this field of law serves to protect fundamental rights in the private law domain, that is to say horizontally between citizens inter se. Based on pan-European comparative research which annotates the work, this volume presents model rules on liability. Explanatory comments and illustrations amplify the policy decisions involved. During the drafting process, comparative material from over 25 different EU jurisdictions has been taken into account. The work therefore is not only a presentation of a future model for European rules to come but provides also a fairly detailed indication of the present legal situation in the Member States.

International Marine Organizations

Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Law

In the last few years, the quantity of books and papers on the political, economic and legal problems of the exploration and use of the sea and marine resources has considerably increased. But the status and activities of intern a tional organizations related to maritime shipping, fisheries, scientific research in the World Ocean and the protection of the marine environment have not yet, as a whole, been represented in the scientific and reference literature. It would be fair, though, to mention that some general information on marine international organizations may be found in the Yearbook of International Organizations, Brussels, 1979; in Annotated Acronyms and Abbreviations of Marine Science Related International Organizations, U. S. Department of Commerce, 1976; and in the UN Annotated Directory ofIntergovernmental Organizations Concerned with Ocean Affairs, 1976. Voluminous informa tion on organizations engaged in problems of the exploration and use ofthe sea is given in International Marine Organizations by the well-known Polish scientists Lopuski and Symonides, 1978. Meanwhile the increasing volume of practical work related to the participa tion of governmental and scientific bodies as well as individual scientists and specialists in these organizations, the necessity of long-term planning in this field, and the perspectives of the development of these organizations, make necessary a special publication depicting the structure and many-sided activi ties of such international bodies. This book is the first one in which the most complete information on the main marine international organizations is presented.

Les droits du contrat travers l internet

Author: Akodah Ayewouadan
Publisher: Primento
ISBN: 9782804453671
Release Date: 2013-02-04
Genre: Law

L'internet ébranle les modes classiques de fonctionnement de nos sociétés contemporaines. Ce nouvel espace se révèle humain, hétérogène, décentralisé et international. Il transcende les frontières et propose un cadre original dans lequel le commerce juridique se revivifie. L’objet de cet ouvrage est de montrer que la pratique contractuelle, de par sa flexibilité, s’est parfaitement insérée dans cet espace et a acquis, par conséquent, une certaine originalité. Dans une démarche dynamique, l’étude se fonde sur l’applicabilité, a priori, des règles du droit commun des contrats aux contrats conclus par l’internet pour démontrer le renouvellement du droit qui a découlé de la contractualisation en ligne. Enrichie des évolutions législatives récentes, l’approche transversale et internationale retenue permet de corroborer l’adaptation de certaines règles, de la conclusion du contrat au contentieux, aux contrats conclu par voie électronique. Elle met également en lumière le rôle croissant qu’est appelé à jouer le juge et par extension l’arbitre pour corriger les défauts du droit applicable aux contrats conclu par voie électronique. Il en ressort que la singularité de ce nouveau medium, caractérisé par l’immmatérialité des échanges, enrichit et renouvelle la matière. L’ouvrage intéressera les avocats, magistrats, notaires ou juristes d’entreprise; son accessibilité et la clarté du propos attireront les cadres et dirigeants, les fonctionnaires ou encore les professeurs et leurs étudiants.
