Juridische overwegingen aangaande de ISD-maatregel

Tijdschrift Justitiële verkenningen, Aflevering 2 2009
Auteurs K.D. Lünnemann
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The primary objective of the ISD Order is to reduce public nuisance caused by extremely persistent offenders. Another objective is to reduce recidivism. Recidivism can be prevented by influencing behaviour, with due regard to any personal issues involved. In this article the author looks at the arguments the judiciary uses to impose or end an ISD Order. The author notices that the judiciary views ISD Orders as a last resort: an order is given only in the absence of alternatives, and with the requirement attached that ISD subjects are to be put on a programme. The judiciary considers rehabilitation within an ISD framework to be extremely important. The orders are almost invariably imposed for two years, with no deduction of the pretrial detention period. There is reason to terminate the order if the recidivism risk has receded, but there may be other termination grounds, outside the control of the ISD subject, such as negligence on the part of a government agency.

Flex BV and MoMiG – Revising the law of limited liability companies in the Netherlands and Germany

Tijdschrift Vennootschap & Onderneming, Aflevering 9 2009
Trefwoorden limited liability, Flex BV, MoMig, BV, GmbH
Auteurs Mrs. C.E. Grundmeier, LL.M.
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In the light of the ECJ case law on the freedom of establishment, both the Dutch and German governments have recently launched legislative proposals that are designed to revamp their national limited liability companies. This gives reason to take a closer look at the Dutch and German approach regarding some important issues for investors, namely minimum capital, non-voting and non-profit participating shares and shareholder instruction rights.

Wetgevingsbeleid in de reshuffle: de Britse regering ziet toch af van regulatory budgets.

Tijdschrift RegelMaat, Aflevering 4 2009
Trefwoorden regulatory budgets, wetgevingsbeleid, Better Regulation, administratieve lasten, kosten van regelgeving
Auteurs dr. mr. A.C.M. Meuwese
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Meestal lijkt Better Regulation net een trein die maar doordendert. Er zijn altijd weer nieuwe landen die zichzelf ten doel stellen administratieve lasten te verlagen, er lijkt altijd behoefte aan meer evaluaties en er komt elk halfjaar weer een nieuw instrument om de effecten van regelgeving te beheersen in de mode. Maar een van de laatste instrumenten die aan het Better-Regulationscala werden toegevoegd, is stilletjes weer van de agenda afgevoerd. De Britse regering heeft namelijk haar ambitieuze plannen om regulatory budgets te introduceren voor onbepaalde tijd in de ijskast gezet. Terwijl het idee op de International Regulatory Reform Conference in Berlijn in de herfst van 2008 nog was aangekondigd als ‘the next frontier in regulatory reform’, heeft men in april 2009, in één grote beweging met de cabinet reshuffle, toch van het idee afgezien, om in plaats daarvan over meer specifieke hervormingsmaatregelen te gaan nadenken.

Access_open Corporate Responsibility Revisited

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden individual responsibility, collective responsibility, legal liability, responsibility and politics
Auteurs prof. Philip Pettit
Samenvatting

    This paper responds to four commentaries on “Responsibility Incorporated”, restating, revising, and expanding on existing work. In particular, it looks again at a set of issues related primarily to responsibility at the individual level; it reconsiders responsibility at the corporate level; it examines the connection of this discussion to issues of responsibility in law and politics.

Access_open Responsibility Incorporated

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden corporate agency, corporate responsibility, collective responsibility
Auteurs prof. Philip Pettit
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Incorporated groups include businesses, universities, churches and the like. Organized to act as single centers of agency, they also routinely satisfy the three conditions that make an agent fit to be held responsible: they face significant choices, can recognize the relative value of different options, and are able to choose in sensitivity to such values. But is it redundant to hold a corporate agent responsible for something, when certain members are also held responsible for the individual parts they play? No it is not, for it is often possible for a corporate entity to be fully fit to be held responsible, when this is not true of the individual members; they may be able to make excuses that are not available at the corporate level. Does the case made for corporate responsibility extend to unincorporated collectivities like nations or religions? Not strictly but it does explain why it may be sensible to treat those collectivities as if they had corporate responsibility in certain domains.

Access_open Morality Incorporated? Some Peculiarities of Legal Thinking

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden responsibility, accountability, imputation, liability
Auteurs prof. Bert van Roermund en prof. Jan Vranken
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Responsibility disappears into the background of private law as it deals with imputation of liability. Fitness to be held liable is determined by normative viewpoints different from moral ones, in particular by convictions on how society ought to be organized so as to avoid or end conflict between private citizens. Modes of discursive control are geared to making authoritative decisions in view of the same end, and corporate agency is created, restricted or enlarged to undercut or to impose individual liability.

Access_open Collective Responsibility, National Peoples, and the International Order

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden collective responsibility, international legitimacy, global justice
Auteurs prof. Ronald Tinnevelt
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This paper critically scrutinizes Pettit’s defence of corporate and collective responsibility in the light three questions. First, does Pettit successfully argue the passage from corporate responsibility to the responsibility of embryonic group agents, in particular nations? Second, are representation and the authorial and editorial dimensions of democratic control sufficient to ensure that a state is under the effective and equally shared control of its citizens? Third, what kind of international order is required to prevent states from being dominated?

Simmel en de wederkerigheid van het vertrouwen

Tijdschrift RegelMaat, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden vertrouwen, wetgevingsbeleid, interactionisme, responsief recht, algemeenheid van de wet
Auteurs Prof. dr. W.J. Witteveen
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    De financiële crisis van 2009 is in de eerste plaats een crisis van het vertrouwen. Ook in de politiek is sprake van een vertrouwenscrisis. Kan de nota Vertrouwen in wetgeving, die de grondslag voor maatschappelijk vertrouwen zoekt in betere wet- en regelgeving, een alternatieve bron van vertrouwen bieden? Bij deze vraag is de interactionistische sociologie van Georg Simmel verrassend actueel. Hij laat zien dat geld de hoogste uitdrukkingsvorm is van sociaal vertrouwen, maar ook dat geld en wet hierbij vergelijkbare functies vervullen. Een integraal wetgevingsbeleid kan, in het licht van Simmels analyse, pas van de grond komen als de wetgever zelf niet in het algemeen op wetten en regels vertrouwt, maar per wet en regeling nagaat hoe de interacties met de burgers vertrouwenwekkend recht op kunnen leveren. Simmels inzichten zijn dan ook lang voor die van Selznick te lezen als een pleidooi voor responsief recht.

Case study: the international CSR conflict and mediation

Supply-chain responsibility: western customers and the Indian textile industry

Tijdschrift Nederlands-Vlaams tijdschrift voor mediation en conflictmanagement, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden corporate social responsibility, international CSR conflicts, supply-chain responsibility, CSR
Auteurs Tineke Lambooy
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In 2008, Ruud Lubbers led a mediation process to resolve the conflicts which had arisen between two Dutch campaigning organisations, various Indian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and labour unions, two Dutch internet providers, an Indian clothing producer and a Dutch jeans brand. The mediation took place at the request of the disagreeing parties and the Dutch and Indian governments. The conflict related to corporate social responsibility (CSR) standards followed by the textile companies.In this contribution the effects of campaigning and litigating in issues concerning CSR will be examined. Limiting the analysis to CSR conflicts in the textile industry, the author will reflect on these new types of international conflicts in a globalising world and will share her view on appropriate ways to avoid them or, ultimately, to (re)mediate them if necessary.This contribution informs the reader about the events in India and the Netherlands which led to the escalation of the conflict. It provides an overview of the conflict resolution procedures and elaborates on the outcome of the ‘Lubbers Mediation’. The applicable legal and soft law labour standards are compared as well as the parties’ communication strategies. Lastly, this case is contrasted with other CSR conflicts in the textile industry, revealing a hidden conflict.

Juridische professionals en herstelgerichte praktijken

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Herstelrecht, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden juridische professionals, magistratuur, advocatuur
Auteurs Katrien Lauwaert
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article sets the stage for the discussion on the role of legal professionals – lawyers and magistrates – in restorative practices. A common task they have is controlling the respect of fundamental rights of the participants in restorative justice practices. How important this task is, will vary according to different variables such as the goals of restorative justice programs and their position towards the criminal justice system. Lauwaert goes on to sketch in separate parts the possible roles of respectively magistrates and lawyers before, during and after mediation or conferences. She refers to the European legislative framework which foresees an important role for magistrates as gatekeepers and assessors of restorative outcomes and explores the strengths and problems these roles evoke. She refers to her own research to explore the attitudes of magistrates towards restorative practices. Concerning the role of lawyers, the European legislative framework is quite vague, and the article tries to analyse more in depth the possibilities and obstacles for lawyers to contribute to the quality of mediation. The lack of knowledge of and acquaintance with the world of restorative justice and mediation is detected as a serious obstacle for further development of this field of action.

An interview with Jeremy Waldron on the methodology debate, historic injustice and the citation of foreign law

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 1 2009
Trefwoorden normative positivism, historic injustice, restitution of property rights, citation of foreign law, methodology debate
Auteurs Kees Quist en Wouter Veraart
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This interview with Jeremy Waldron covers three topics. Firstly, we dealt with the methodology debate, that is, the discussion about how to proceed in analyzing the nature of law. Does the question ‘What is law?’ require a descriptive analysis of the concept of law or, rather, a normative exercise in political philosophy? Secondly, we spoke about the role of law in response to historic injustice, especially in relation to the restitution of property rights. On this topic Waldron vindicates the ‘supersession-thesis’, the idea that, due to changed circumstances and the passage of time, historic injustices become superseded. The third section of the interview is devoted to Waldron’s perspective on the citation of foreign law by national judges.
