This book advocates a new way of thinking about mortgage contracts. This claim is based on the assumption that we currently live in a political economy in which consumer debt fulfils a social function. In the field of housing this is evidenced by the expansion of mortgage credit through which consumers are to purchase residential property as a means of social inclusion and personal welfare. It is suggested that contract law needs to adjust to this new social function in order to avoid welfare losses in terms of default, over-indebtedness, and possibly eviction. To this end, this book analyses theoretical contract law frameworks and makes concrete proposals for contract law in the EU legal order.

Arbitration: the solution to tackle cross-border tax disputes From the increasing integration of the world economy and the lack of rules to govern the taxation of multinational enterprises to cross-border tax disputes: arbitration is one potential solution. Arbitration is not a new development in the international tax arena, but it has not yet been widely implemented in practice. In the last few years, the concept of arbitration in tax matters was revived, mainly following the OECD/G20 BEPS Project, as well as the EU Action Plan on Corporate Taxation. Now arbitration is expected to play a more significant role and enhance the existing framework of cross-border tax dispute resolution. „OECD Arbitration in Tax Treaty Law” constitutes a comprehensive compendium on international tax arbitration and provides in-depth analysis of all relevant aspects of the topic. The introductory chapters provide background information on tax arbitration and comparisons with other areas of law. The book also takes stock of the recent developments in this area within the OECD, the EU, the UN and the United States. It addresses the main concerns that have been raised with regard to arbitration, and compares and contrasts the design of various arbitration clauses. It also considers potential future developments. This compendium on international tax arbitration shows one way how to tackle the rising tide of cross-border tax disputes.

Examining general principles of law provides one of the most instructive examples of the intersection between EU law and comparative law. This collection draws on the expertise of high-profile and distinguished scholars to provide a critical examination of this interaction. It shows how general principles of EU law need to be responsive to national laws. In addition, it is clear that the laws of the Member States have no choice but to be responsive to the general principles which are developed through EU law. Viewed through the perspective of proportionality, legal certainty, and fundamental rights, the dynamic relationship between the ingenuity of the Court of Justice, the legislative process and the process of Treaty revision is comprehensively illustrated.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: 1,3, Leiden University (Europaisches Rechtsinstitut), language: English, comment: The author brought up this topical and challenging topic and formulated her clear and well-argued research question of her own motion. This thesis is well-researched and reasonably convincing. (comments of the corrector), abstract: This thesis looks at the EU ne bis in idem principle. In particular it examines if this principle that no one shall be held liable twice for the same act, contains an enforcement requirement. Because the ne bis in idem principle is codified in different sources of EU law which all have slightly different wordings, a (national) judge may be confronted with the difficult question as to what provision to apply in a given case. The author of this thesis has selected a judgment of a German Court that well illustrates this dilemma and which shows the relevance and topical interest of this problem, for which as yet no clear guidance has been provided by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). In this Boere case a German Court applied the ne bis in idem principle as laid down in Article 54 CISA and concluded that enforcement was an essential element of the ne bis in idem principle. The thesis introduces this case in a well-structured manner and critically reflects upon the judgment of the German Court. By taking this case a starting point, the author sets out clearly which underlying questions concerning the hierarchy between the different sources of EU law must be answered before a conclusion in a particular ne bis in idem case can be drawn. The author of this thesis argues that Article 54 CISA - as applied by the German Court in the Boere case - is incompatible with Article 50 EuCFR, a provision which does not contain an enforcement requirement. She thereby analyses the relation between these two source of law - the Schengen acquis and the E
