Theory and Practice of Harmonisation
Harmonized and uniform international laws are now being spread across different jurisdictions and fields of law, bringing with them an increasing body of scholarship on practical problems and theoretical dimensions. This comprehensive and insightful book focuses on the contributions to the development and understanding of the critical theory of harmonization.
The contributing authors address a variety of different subjects concerned with harmonization and the application of legal rules resulting from harmonization efforts. This study is written by leading scholars engaged in different aspects of harmonization, and covers both regional harmonization within the EU and regional human rights treaties, as well as harmonization with international treaty obligations.
With comparative analysis that contributes to the development of a more general theory on the harmonization process, this timely book will appeal to EU and international law scholars and practitioners, as well as those looking to future legal harmonization in other regions in Asia, Latin America and Africa.
