Hugo Sinzheimer en de collectieve arbeidsovereenkomst

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 3 2013
Trefwoorden Labour relations, collective agreement, Sinzheimer
Auteurs Robert Knegt
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The German lawyer / labour law professor Hugo Sinzheimer (1875-1945) has, in the first two decades of the twentieth century, contributed significantly to the legal recognition of the ‘collective labour agreement’. The imperative character of CLA provisions, now widely accepted all over the world, required a paradigmatic turn in the dominant private law perspective on labour relations. The paper tries to specify what made him able and prone to do this, both by reconstructing the legal and political discussion in Germany and the Netherlands and by relating elements of the process to social-scientific theories of institutional and intellectual innovation. I argue that his combination of commitments in various fields (legal practice, science, politics) allowed him to span the gap between the fields of labour relations and state law and to contribute to the constitutionalisation of labour relations.

Burgerschap en niet-statelijk recht: een reconstructie

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 1 2012
Trefwoorden cities, citizenship, exclusion, social formations

SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In recent discussions on ‘citizenship’, the concept is oddly dealt with as if it would have originated shortly before the French Revolution and would have meaning in a nation state context only. During at least seven centuries before that, however, it had a crucial importance in the development of Western-European cities. Citizenship, being primarily based on an exclusion from the jurisdiction of local rulers (privilege) which then opens opportunities for the inclusion of citizens in systems of self-rule, has been closely connected with law as from the start. In the article a model developed by Sassen (2006) is used to reconstruct the development of ‘citizenship’ with special reference to the transfer of its elements, often with a considerable change of meaning and function, from one into the other of the four social formations to be distinguished. It is argued that an extended perspective, that acknowledges citizenship and law before its usurpation by the nation state, may be relevant to our assessment of recent developments towards ‘transnational’ forms of citizenship.

Een verliezer is geen winnaar

De naleving van civiele rechtspraak, 15 jaar na Van Koppen en Malsch

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 2 2010
Trefwoorden courts, civil justice, enforcement of judgments, procedural justice
Auteurs Roland Eshuis
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article compares two studies on the compliance with judicial decisions and friendly settlements in Dutch civil court procedures. A new study (Eshuis 2009) finds a higher rate of compliance, which can largely be attributed to the selection of cases. The older study (Van Koppen & Malsch 1991) included a high number of default judgments, which are associated with a low level of compliance, while friendly settlements – associated with a high level of compliance – were excluded. The new study finds full compliance rates of 31% for default judgments, 74% for judgments in defended cases and 85% for friendly settlements. The high compliance with friendly settlements suggests these settlements are ‘better’ outcomes; however, the difference in compliance can well be explained by selection effects. Interviews reveal that many friendly settlements are not the harmonious solutions one might expect.
    The new study finds no solid relation between compliance and procedural or distributive justice. In two relevant ways the conditions in the ‘real life’ judicial procedure are different from those in experimental research in which such relations are found. First, a large part of the non-compliance is caused by an inability of parties to comply. These participants may find the procedure and outcome fully ‘just’, but still won’t comply. Second, for those who can comply, there is no free choice on whether to comply or not. There are quite effective means of enforcement for such cases. So, those who can comply will, even if the procedure and its outcome are experienced as fully ‘unjust’.
    The first part of the title of the article is a comment on Van Koppen and Malsch’s earlier research. They concluded that winning in court often was a Pyrrhic victory, and the loser would win after all. In the interviews however, few of those who do not comply were found to fit the image of a ‘winner’. The sad conclusion is that in judicial procedures winners and losers do not come in the same numbers; after all, it produces far more losers than winners.

De fictie van de constitutie

Over de maatschappelijke functie van ontwerp-denken

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 01 2009
Auteurs Olaf Tans
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This contribution seeks to explain our commitment to the ambition to establish constitutional government, given the fact that this ambition appears to be unsuccessful. As for the latter, it is argued that the constitutional ambition is unsuccessful in that it is based on the idea of legal closure, whereas the practice of constitutional decision-making shows a continuous failure to establish such closure. To explain why political communities are nevertheless drawn to the constitutional ambition, this contribution defends that the idea of the constution as a governing normative framework functions as a useful fiction. This fiction, so the argument goes, facilitates a certain kind of public debate that enables political communities to express their collective identity.

    Experts may be involved in the trial of various types of legal cases. In most cases, they act as an advisor to the court or to the parties. In this model, the so-called ‘advisor model’, the expert writes a report that is used by the court for decision making. Experts may be called to attend the hearing of cases to answer questions that arise regarding their advise. In the other model, the ‘decision model’, the expert forms part of the panel that is in charge of decision making in a case. Decisions in cases are made in co-operation between judges and experts in this model. This model is not used on a large scale; the advisor model is prevailing in Dutch courts.This article discusses advantages and disadvantages of the ‘decision model’. An empirical study to the operation of this model as it is used in a variety of courts is explained. Panels in which experts are included seem to profit from the direct availability of expertise while making decisions in a case. Respondents state that external acceptance of the court decisions is also increased by the involvement of experts in a panel. Participation by experts in these panels is voluminous and they are considered to exert a large influence on the outcomes of decisions.
