  • Compliance Law is defined by the Monumental Goals it pursues.

    Willingly or by force, companies must structure themselves and act to reach them. In a major and global transformation, they are thereby becoming transparent, making Compliance Tools visible.

    Emphasizing the unity of these Tools promotes a unified legal regime, while adapting them country by country, sector by sector, company by company. Understanding these Compliance Tools to anticipate the assessment made by Regulators, Supervisors and Courts, and the provisions of future texts, while companies are invited to invent new ones, is hopefully more appropriate.

    General perspectives through which risk maps, compliance programs, deals and judicial agreements, ad hoc training, algorithms, audits, sanctions, controls, whistleblowing, collective actions, etc. are scrutinized.

  • Le droit de la famille, dans sa dimension civiliste, fortement ancré dans les cultures nationales des États membres, est une matière qui ne relève pas, en principe, du droit de l'Union européenne. Pourtant, il n'est plus possible d'affirmer que la matière échappe dans son entier au droit de l'Union. De nombreux aspects de la famille sont sous influence européenne, au point que l'on voit se dessiner les contours d'une « famille européenne ». L'ouvrage propose de mettre en lumière l'acquis européen en matière de droit de la famille, au prisme du droit matériel (citoyenneté européenne, politique sociale de l'Union, fonction publique européenne...), comme du droit international privé. Le droit de la famille de l'Union s'identifie alors comme un «droit spécial» complétant la diversité des droits nationaux de la famille. Sa signification théorique et politique dans l'Union est débattue par les auteurs, autant que son devenir. Loin de demeurer fragmentaire à côté des droits nationaux des États membres, il a probablement vocation à se densifier pour offrir aux citoyens et résidents européens un droit commun de la famille au sein de l'Union.

    Family law, with its civil law tradition, and strong roots in the national cultures of the Member States, does not normally fall within the scope of European law. However, it is no longer possible to argue that family law is outside European law entirely. There are many aspects of the family which are subject to European influence, to the point that the outlines of a «European family» are starting to emerge. This book is intended to highlight the European experience of family law and its substantive (i.e. European citizenship, EU social policy, EU civil service...) and private international law aspects. Union law therefore contains a form of «special» family law which is shared between the Member States and supplements their national family laws. Its theoretical and political importance in the Union, as well as its future, are discussed by the authors. Far from remaining fragmented alongside the national laws of Member States, it will likely develop to offer European citizens and residents a common family law within the EU.

  • In twenty years, the globalization of trade has led to a change in scale that has upset the balance of power between the players in online containerized maritime transport and the logistics chain passing through European seaports. Three global shipping alliances dominate 90% of online containerized maritime transport, while further integrating port activities.
    Twelve Asian ports, eight of which are Chinese, are now among the top fifteen in the world. At the same time, Chinese interests, supported by public authorities and resources, are taking control of terminals and port companies in Europe, as part of the geopolitical project of the New Silk Roads. This economic and industrial context is emblematic of the challenges facing European competition law, which has so far accompanied rather than controlled these transformations. European competition rules will have to be mobilized in a global context, alongside the new rules on the control of foreign direct investment. This study takes stock of the new regulatory challenges in this sector of prime importance for the Union.

  • This Handbook of European Environment and Climate Law is the 2nd edition of the work previously titled Handbook of European Environment Law.

    It is associated with the Traité de droit européen de l'environnement et du climat and the Manuel de droit européen de l'environnement et du climat, both in the French language and published in the same collection, and with which it shares a same structure. The Traité provides a more in-depth approach, with further historic, policy and caselaw considerations, and more complete references.

    The introduction in the book's title of the climate dimension, while it was already quite present in the previous edition, is testimony to its growing importance absent a dedicated EU policy and corresponding legislative basis.

    Climate law is covered in its many occurrences along the work, its specificities noted, and their consequences recognized, especially with respect to the international background which brings about novel legal interventions, an upheaval of classical approaches, through the creation of a new governance for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and of the resulting EU legislation.

    The recurring changes in the many and diverse environmental legislations are also of course presented in context, including in light of the growing importance of circular economy and the proposal of a European Green Deal.

    The growing interference of fundamental rights is henceforth considered: Charter of Fundamental Rights of the Union, Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, etc. More broadly, the development of environmental and climate disputes settlement is accounted for beyond the traditional recourse to the EU judges, in the national courts including through transnational private litigation, and in international arbitration.

  • This handbook proposes an introduction to the EU's Environmental Law and it is thus primarily intended for students, legal practitioners and environment-specialized engineers and other technicians.

    European environmental law remains strongly under the influence of its initial market-oriented legal framework in spite of the progress accomplished by the common environmental policy.
    Environmental governance and management operate within a complex primary law framework, within which conciliation must be made between economical and environmental objectives around such concepts as the quest for a high level of protection and sustainable development.

    A description of that decisive institutional framework provides the starting point for a synthetic and dynamic presentation of the hundreds of secondary law measures which provide parameters for human activities, from the main areas of natural environments to the objects impacting thereon, the means to implement them or economic instruments such as greenhouse gas emission allowances ou the producer's responsibility extended to the end-oflife of his products. As to the integration of environmental requirements into other policies, it resolves arising conflicts with market rules and sectorial policies, especially in the agricultural, transports, energy and health areas.

    This handbook includes a description of the impact of the Paris Agreement on climate change on EU law, including the two «legislative packages» and the new «Governance of the Energy Union« proposed by the Commission.

  • Avec la Convention des Nations Unies sur le droit de la mer de 1982 les États parties voulaient établir un nouvel ordre juridique qui favorise les utilisations pacifiques des mers et océans. Un quart de siècle après, force est de constater que, malheureusement, cela ne s'est pas fait. En effet, la criminalité en mer a augmentée, elle est devenue plus fréquente, se manifestant souvent sous des formes non prévues par les rédacteurs de cette Convention. Ainsi, une insécurité maritime croissante émerge, provenant non seulement des risques naturels ou provoqués par la navigation maritime, mais aussi de ceux dérivés des actions illicites intentionnelles.

    L'Association internationale de Droit de la Mer (AssIDMer), conscient de l'actualité et de l'importance des problèmes liés à la violence en mer, a retenu pour son IIIe Colloque ordinaire, tenu à La Corogne (Espagne) les 14, 15 et 16 mai 2009, le thème Sûreté maritime et violence en mer. Les travaux se sont orientés autour de trois axes majeurs : trafic illégal de personnes et délinquance organisée transnationale; terrorisme et piraterie maritime; et protection et sécurité dans les transports maritimes.

    Le présent volume contient les travaux présentés à cette occasion par divers juristes et professionnels spécialistes en la matière en provenance de plusieurs pays et de différentes institutions, et maintient la structure de ce Colloque. Ainsi, chacune de ses trois parties est composée d'un rapport général, de rapports concernant des mesures nationales ainsi que celles de l'Union européenne et des organisations internationales, complétées par des rapports complémentaires et par une conclusion de séance.

    Tout cela a été également enrichi par une synthèse des réflexions qui ont eu lieu pendant la table ronde dans laquelle ont participé des juges au Tribunal International du Droit de la Mer, et par des conclusions générales.

  • La migration est un phénomène international.
    Toutefois, la mise en oeuvre d'une dimension externe de la politique d'immigration et d'asile de l'Union européenne n'est guère aisée. Cet ouvrage regroupe des contributions d'experts sur les difficultés qui, depuis le Traité d'Amsterdam, illustrent l'émergence de cette dimension. Après une introduction dévoilant les termes du compromis entre l'Union européenne et les pays tiers d'origine ou de transit des migrants et des réfugiés, les relations entre le droit européen de l'immigration et de l'asile, le droit international et les droits de l'homme, ainsi que le rôle joué par la Cour de Justice dans leur agencement, sont traitées ainsi que la complexité de la répartition des compétences entre l'Union européenne et ses Etats membres dans ce domaine (visas et réadmission).
    Suit une étude des instruments généraux de la dimension externe (partenariats pour la mobilité), et une analyse sectorielle de l'asile (programmes de protection régionale...) et de l'immigration (admission et statut des travailleurs). Les liens entre migration et développement que l'Union européenne tente de nouer à côté des volets de lutte contre l'immigration irrégulière et de gestion de la migration légale sont intégrés, suivant ainsi les derniers développements de cette politique externe que l'Union européenne a baptisée "Approche globale des migrations" en 2005 et se prépare à évaluer en 2011.

  • Being aware of the significance of the new challenges raised by the European asylum and immigration policy this book presents an evaluation of ten years of EU migration and asylum policymaking under the Tampere, The Hague and Stockholm programmes. The European Union has been calling for a stricter control of migratory flows while at the same time pleading in favour of development of countries of origin and transit and respect for asylum seekers' rights.
    However, the regulations and tools to be used in order to achieve the first objective do not seem to be compatible with the second purpose and the full respect of international law on human rights. This volume offers an overview and a comprehensive approach of the developments in four core topics of the European asylum and immigration policy: the right to asylum; border controls and the fight against irregular migration and human trafficking; legal migration and integration; and the synergy between migration and development.
    This publication is the fruit of the Scribani International Conference held in Madrid in 2010 at the University Institute for Migration Studies of the Comillas Pontifical University, which offered an excellent opportunity to bring together experts and young researchers of various EU countries and from different disciplines within the social sciences.

  • This book introduces the reader to key legal provisions and case-law related to the procedural and substantive issues that may arise in damages litigation for breach of anti-competitive agreements and abuses of a dominant position prohibitions.

    For the past decade, academic publications have focused on the proposal for a Directive on damages actions, then the Directive 2014/104/EU of 26 November 2014 itself, and finally the transposition texts. However, this understandable interest should not lead to overlook the fact that the Directive has been applied very little until now. This is mainly due to its application ratione temporis. In addition to the fact that Member States only transposed the Directive between the end of 2016 and 2018, Article 22 of the Directive provides that the substantive rules contained in the Directive cannot be applied to infringements subsequent to the national laws transposing them, while the procedural rules of the Directive apply to proceedings commenced on or after 26 December 2014. Thus, it is prior domestic law that continues to govern the vast majority of cases before national courts in the «Pre-Directive era.» In addition, a number of issues of the utmost importance have not been addressed by the Directive, such as questions of international jurisdiction or the quantification of «interests.» For these reasons, it seemed necessary not to limit this book to commenting on the Directive, important as it is, but to go beyond it.

    Directed by Rafael Amaro, this book contains the contributions from leading academics, attorneys, jurists and economists in the field of the private enforcement of competition law. It is composed of thematic chapters dealing with matters such as applicable law in international litigation, limitation, quantification of damages, from both a European Union and a national perspective, as well as national chapters presenting the state of play in several European States.

  • Qu'est-ce qu'être européen ? Impossible de proposer une réponse simple et définitive. Il faut différencier le fait de la conscience, le juridique du sentiment, le social du culturel. La citoyenneté européenne, depuis 1992, complète la citoyenneté nationale mais ne la remplace pas. Chaque citoyen doit découvrir cette citoyenneté, ou rester dans l'ignorance. Comme il n'y a pas de nationalité européenne, être Européen, c'est donc avant tout avoir conscience de l'existence d'un projet européen. Une logique qui s'inscrit à la fois dans les processus identitaires, dans les cultures et la citoyenneté active.
    La " globalisation " culturelle affecte évidemment les mécanismes identitaires. La construction identitaire suppose à la fois altérité et communion, et autorise en même temps une différenciation et une insertion sociale. Il semble donc logique que la construction européenne renforce les sentiments identitaires, souvent au niveau des nations et non des États. L'identité européenne se ressent alors souvent en négatif, par la confrontation avec l'altérité plus qu'avec le semblable. L'identité, par la culture, hérite en partage d'une tradition d'humanisme, mais aussi d'une éthique politique. L'" européanisation " des cultures s'inscrit dans une démarche d'ouverture constante vers l'autre, un processus d'enrichissement qui complète l'école de morale politique induite par l'Histoire et le rôle de révélateur de l'identité européenne que devraient jouer les institutions européennes.
    Les textes proposés dans ce volume contribuent à ces réflexions et analyses. Après une introduction philosophique, la première partie traite surtout de l'articulation entre identités et citoyennetés, avec des apports sociologiques, juridiques et historiques. La seconde partie explore les liens entre identités et cultures, en particulier relativement aux expressions artistiques, au patrimoine culturel, à la littérature ou au multilinguisme incontournable, notamment en Europe centrale. La conclusion, enfin, est offerte par une écrivaine qui illustre par son propre destin une réalité et un projet européens.
