Wegcontracteren van de aanvullende werking van de redelijkheid en billijkheid

Tijdschrift Contracteren, Aflevering 5 2011
Trefwoorden redelijkheid en billijkheid, aanvullende werking, Regulation on a Common European Sales Law
Auteurs Prof. mr. M.H. Wissink
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Mark Wissink snijdt vervolgens een onderwerp aan waarover Grosheide en Drion nog wel eens (in discussiërende zin) de staf hebben mogen breken: de rol van de redelijkheid en billijkheid. En dan meer in het bijzonder de vraag naar het al dan niet kunnen wegcontracteren van de aanvullende werking daarvan. Wissink bespreekt oude en nieuwe argumenten, zoals artikel 2 lid 3 van de voorgestelde Regulation on a Common European Sales Law van 11 oktober 2011, op basis waarvan de redelijkheid en billijkheid niet door partijen mogen worden weggecontracteerd. Wissink tekent daarbij – terecht – aan dat de inhoud van de Europese redelijkheid en billijkheid (good faith and fair dealing) nog wel eens zou kunnen verschillen van de Nederlandse.

Regulering in een hybride veiligheidszorg

Over de bewaking van een publiek goed in een deels geprivatiseerd bestel

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Veiligheid, Aflevering 4 2011
Trefwoorden regulation, security, privatization, public good, self-regulation
Auteurs Jan Terpstra
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This paper deals with the question of how a partly privatized security sector could be regulated. A central aim of this regulation should be the control of security as a public good. Three models of regulation are analyzed. The current practice of this regulation in the Netherlands shows a serious lack of effectiveness. One of our main conclusions is that neither the state nor the private sector is able to enforce this regulation on their own. However, it is assumed that the state should have a central and integrated regulatory role in this field, with more attention paid to the practical implementation of it, with the power and will to sanction private agencies if necessary. In addition managers of private security companies should adopt a role as public managers with a public moral duty. Regulation of security is faced with a double problematic, not only the horizontal fragmentation of the field, but also the vertical fragmentation, often resulting in a serious gap between managers and those in the field, both in the public and the private sector. This implies that the regulation should not only rest on the state and on self-regulation by the sector at management level, but also on the promotion of a practical ethic for security workers to steer and regulate their daily work.

    For a common market, a common patent and a common patent litigation seem self-evident. Although efforts to introduce these common market institutions in Europe started early in the history of the Economic Community, they remained unsuccessful. The reconstruction of this legal history is focused on two theoretical issues.The first concerns the question of power and influence in the EU, in particular the configuration of stakeholders responsible for the non-decision making on this policy issue. The basic mechanism underlying the lack of success of this dossier appears to be a balance of power between the two opposing groups of stakeholders (France and European institutions vs. Germany, UK, supported by their patenting industry and legal experts). This suggests that transnational rule making, proceeding under similar conditions, is likely to have a long (if not unsuccessful) ‘issue career’.The second theoretical issue concerns the agenda-setting mechanisms of recent decades. All initiatives on international or transnational patent policy have mainly been the product of ‘high politics’, although the input of patent legal experts (representatives of ‘low politics’) has increased considerably in recent decades. Further, this history would seem to defy simple schemes of agenda setting. There is no simple sequence of issue initiation, specification, expansion and entrance. At best, it is a series of such sequences.

Mediation training in Russia

Past experience and latest legislative innovations

Tijdschrift Nederlands-Vlaams tijdschrift voor mediation en conflictmanagement, Aflevering 4 2011
Trefwoorden mediator training, mediation standards, legal reforms in Russia, russian mediation law
Auteurs Vadim Abolonin en Ksenia Sergeeva
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The goal of this article is to examine key problems of training standards for mediators in Russia and to identify possible solutions that may address these issues. In considering the question of mediation training in the context of mediation development in Russia, one can distinguish two periods: (1) before the enactment of the Law on mediation, or the period of private initiatives, and (2) after this Law entered into force, which can be entitled as the period of governmental regulation.During the first period, there were no special legal regulations and thus, private institutions had been offering their own diverse and numerous mediation training programs. The situation has changed due to the active force of the Federal Law on mediation by implementing provisions that require creation of a special unified training program for professional mediators and approval by the Government of the Russian Federation. This program was adopted on 14 February 2011. The approach of the Russian legislature to the establishment of a consistent educational standard for Russian mediators can be considered as the implementation of the woldwide shift toward standards unification. However, the Law itself contains some contradictions, and also contains a number of provisions that cast serious doubts upon the success of this effort.

Access_open Hybrid Constitutionalism, Fundamental Rights and the State

A Response to Gunther Teubner

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 3 2011
Trefwoorden societal constitutionalism, Gunther Teubner, system theory, fundamental rights
Auteurs Gert Verschraegen
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This contribution explores how much state is necessary to make societal constitutionalism work. I first ask why the idea of a global societal constitutionalism ‘beyond the state-and-politics’ might be viewed as a significant and controversial, but nonetheless justified innovation. In the second part I discuss what Teubner calls ‘the inclusionary effects of fundamental rights’. I argue that Teubner underplays the mediating role of the state in guaranteeing inclusion or access, and in a way presupposes well-functioning states in the background. In areas of limited statehood there is a problem of enforcing fundamental rights law. It is an open question whether, and under which conditions, constitutional norms within particular global social spheres can provide enough counter-weight when state constitutional norms are lacking.

Access_open Transnational Fundamental Rights: Horizontal Effect?

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 3 2011
Trefwoorden fundamental rights, societal constitutionalism, inclusionary and exclusionary effects, anonymous matrix
Auteurs Gunther Teubner
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Violations of human rights by transnational corporations and by other ‘private’ global actors raise problems that signal the limits of the traditional doctrine of ‘horizontal effects’. To overcome them, constitutional law doctrine needs to be complemented by perspectives from legal theory and sociology of law. This allows new answers to the following questions: What is the validity basis of human rights in transnational ‘private’ regimes – extraterritorial effect, colère public or external pressures on autonomous law making in global regimes? Do they result in protective duties of the states or in direct human rights obligations of private transnational actors? What does it mean to generalise state-directed human rights and to respecify them for different social spheres? Are societal human rights limited to ‘negative’ rights or is institutional imagination capable of developing ‘positive’ rights – rights of inclusion and participation in various social fields? Are societal human rights directed exclusively against corporate actors or can they be extended to counteract structural violence of anonymous social processes? Can such broadened perspectives of human rights be re-translated into the practice of public interest litigation?

Teubner on Human Rights

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 3 2011
Trefwoorden semiosphera, paranomia, Drittwirkung, matrix argument
Auteurs Pasquale Femia
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Examining the function of human rights in the semiosphere requires a strategy of differentiation: the dissolution of politics into political moments (politics, it is argued, is not a system, but a form of discourse); the distinction between discourse and communication; the concept of systemic paranomic functionings. Paranomia is a situation generated by the pathological closure of discourses, in which knowledge of valid and observed norms obscures power. Fundamental rights are the movement of communication, claims about redistributing powers, directed against paranomic functionings. Rethinking the debate about the third party effect implies that validity and coherence must be differentiated for the development of the ‘matrix argument’.

A Comment to Gunther Teubner’s Plea for a ‘Common Law Constitution’

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 3 2011
Trefwoorden global society, constitutionalism, social systems theory, Teubner, law and order
Auteurs Bart van Klink
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article presents some critical comments concerning the conceptual, normative and institutional foundations of Teubner’s plea for a ‘common law constitution’. My comments question the desirability of the means chosen for attaining this objective as well as their efficacy. In particular, I have difficulties with the ambivalent role that is assigned to man, either as a person or as a human being; with the reduction of social problems to problems of communication; and, finally and most importantly, with the attempt to conceive of law and politics beyond established legal and political institutions, which in my view is doomed to fail. The conclusion offers some tentative suggestions for an alternative approach.

Vrijwilligers binnen een maximalistische visie op herstelrecht

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Herstelrecht, Aflevering 3 2011
Trefwoorden Volunteers, Participation, restorative justice, Autonomy
Auteurs Erik Claes en Emilie Van Daele
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article aims at grounding and defining the role of volunteers in restorative justice practices. It starts from the observation that processes of institutionalization tend to make the role of volunteering citizens in restorative justice programmes doubtful and superfluous. These doubts are strengthened by the fact that the link between restorative justice values and the importance of working with volunteers is too easily assumed. Can we offer some well-founded arguments to back up this assumption and to outline what key roles volunteers can play? Several conceptions of restorative justice might be explored. This contribution examines the maximalist view, as developed by Lode Walgrave in his latest book Restorative Justice, Self-interest and Responsible Citizenship. The article critically asks if and how his conception demands an active role for volunteers within restorative justice practices. The paper develops its arguments on the basis of three key concepts in Walgraves model: (1) his definition of restorative justice; (2) his notion of crime; and (3) his socio-ethical intuition of common self-interest.

The relationship between arbitrators and the administrative and judicial organs of the EU

Tijdschrift Nederlands-Vlaams tijdschrift voor mediation en conflictmanagement, Aflevering 3 2011
Trefwoorden International Commercial Arbitration, EC Commission, arbitral discretion, third parties
Auteurs Joanna Kolber
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Arbitration cases involving EC competition law may create difficulties for arbitrators with regard to their attitude towards the EU organs. The article discusses aspects of this relationship. The article specifically evaluates the (non-)application in arbitration of the regime for EC Commission’s relationship with member states’ courts as well as the EC Commission’s role as a third party in arbitrations. The article then analyses circumstances of the possible co-operation of arbitrators with the EC Commission and the conditions for its smooth running. The article subsequently looks at the effects of the Commission’s decisions on arbitration as well as the effects of the arbitral awards on the Commission. The article considers the lack of a relationship between arbitrators and the European Court of Justice in light of the Court’s jurisprudence, and the relevance of the Court’s jurisprudence for particular arbitrations.

Publiekrecht en regulering

Auteurs Mr. dr. A.C.M. Meuwese
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Deze bijdrage geeft inzicht in de stand van de wetenschap op het terrein van het thema ‘publiekrecht en regulering’ door de recente bundel The Regulatory State: Constitutional Implications te bespreken. De constitutionele problemen veroorzaakt door fragmentatie van regulering gaan verder dan de al langer bekende problemen rond delegatie. Als we echt grip willen houden op regulering, bijvoorbeeld door middel van wetgevingsbeleid, moeten we bereid zijn het verschijnsel diepgaander te analyseren en over onconventionele oplossingen na te denken.

Scharnierpunt tussen Europees en nationaal consumentenrecht

De ‘gemiddelde consument’ als gemeenschappelijke standaard?

Tijdschrift Maandblad voor Vermogensrecht, Aflevering 7/8 2011
Trefwoorden gemiddelde consument, Europees consumentenrecht, zorgplichten, Dexia, rechtsvorming
Auteurs Dr. V. Mak
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    De ‘gemiddelde consument’ is een toetssteen voor consumentenbescherming, zowel in het EU-recht als in het nationale privaatrecht. De standaarden lopen echter uiteen: in het EU-recht wordt hij als gemiddeld omzichtig en oplettend beschouwd, terwijl het nationale privaatrecht juist uitgaat van een consument die meer bescherming nodig heeft. In deze bijdrage verken ik de achtergrond van dit onderscheid door naar de functie van het begrip te kijken op de beide niveaus van regelgeving. Voorts betoog ik dat het begrip als ‘open platform’ een centrale functie kan vervullen in een nieuw model voor rechtsvorming in het Europese consumentenrecht.

Access_open Religie, criminaliteit en geweld: ambivalente bevindingen

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Religie, Recht en Beleid, Aflevering 2 2011
Trefwoorden religious commitment, fundamentalism, muslim-radicalism, crime, violence, prevention
Auteurs Bas van Stokkom
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In this contribution the author discusses the broad question whether religious commitment does – or does not – stimulate violent types of criminal behaviour. Based on a review of relevant literature (criminology and religious studies), it is first specified that religious commitment in many respects functions as a protective factor to prevent people from criminal behaviour. By contrast, many orthodox and fundamentalist groups consider defensive violence (self-defense) and punitive violence (retaliation) to be legitimate options. In the final section the author discusses some of the assumed relationships between crime, violence and muslim-radicalism in the Netherlands.

Is mededingingsbeperking nodig voor duurzaamheid?

SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Zowel in de literatuur als in de beleidswereld bestaat toenemende aandacht voor de mogelijke spanning tussen duurzame ontwikkeling en het mededingingsrecht. Hierbij stellen veel auteurs te vraag of de (toepassing van) het mededingingsrecht mogelijk aanpassing behoeft. Een vraag die hieraan vooraf gaat is of in de praktijk voorbeelden bestaan van mededingingsbeperkende afspraken die antwoorden bieden op duurzaamheidsproblemen. Dit artikel verkent of hiervan sprake is voor drie voorbeelden genoemd door Ottervanger in zijn oratie van vorig jaar: duurzame visserij, kinderarbeid en duurzame cacao.

Confrontaties van coregulering

Over bestuurlijke afstemming tussen publieke toezichthouders, private toezichthouders en ondertoezichtgestelden

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Toezicht, Aflevering 2 2011
Trefwoorden coregulering, zelfregulering, governance, Certificering
Auteurs Drs. H.G. van der Voort
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Stel dat publieke toezichthouders, private toezichthouders en ondertoezichtgestelden gezamenlijk regels stellen ten behoeve van het borgen van een publieke waarde. In zo’n geval is er sprake van coregulering. Coregulering impliceert overlappende en soms strijdige regimes van deze drie partijen. Dit bemoeilijkt bestuurlijke afstemming tussen deze drie partijen. Dit artikel stelt de vraag hoe dit bestuurlijke afstemmingsproces verloopt. Wat voor confrontaties zijn denkbaar? Wat zijn strategische reflexen van betrokkenen? In tegenstelling tot de gangbare literatuur is dit artikel geschreven vanuit een neutraal (governance) perspectief. De vraag is dus niet of coregulering voor een enkele partij effectief is, maar hoe coregulering zich ontwikkelt als er eenmaal sprake van is. Drie casestudies suggereren dat zowel publieke als private toezichthouders aarzelen zich volledig aan coregulering te committeren. De aarzelingen kunnen leiden tot hoge administratieve lasten voor ondertoezichtgestelden of verminderde garanties die de partijen elkaar kunnen bieden.

Herstelrecht en criminaliteitspreventie

Van conceptueel kader naar praktische uitdaging

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Herstelrecht, Aflevering 2 2011
Trefwoorden criminaliteitspreventie, conceptueel kader
Auteurs Adam Crawford
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    On the basis of current definitions and approaches of restorative justice and crime prevention, and making use of a two-dimensional typology of crime prevention, this article develops a conceptual framework and seeks to offer points of connections and departure at the theoretical level between restorative justice practices and different models of offender-oriented, victim-oriented and community-oriented prevention. In order to face some of the present limitations of restorative justice, in particular the missing link to causes of crime at the societal-structural level, the author widens the perspective of restorative justice to the broader notion of ‘community justice’. The challenge for restorative justice is, then, to integrate polycentric problem-solving approaches into its operational models.

Mediation Law in Germany

Trefwoorden German Mediation Code, confidentiality, duties of disclosure, limitation periods
Auteurs Renate Dendorfer
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In the contribution ‘Mediation Law in Germany’ Renate Dendorfer discusses the background and contents of the ‘German Code for Promotion of Mediation and other Proceedings of Alternative Dispute Resolution’ in light of the implementation of the EU Mediation Directive. Important issues such as duties of the mediator, confidentiality, and training and education are focused on.


Renate Dendorfer
Prof. dr. Renate Dendorfer LL.M. MBAHeussen Rechtsanwaltgesellschaft mbH, Munich.

    The main difference between various forms of prevention of organised crime is between primary and secondary prevention on the one hand and tertiary prevention on the other. The latter is directed at diminishing an already existing problem. This article deals with social conditions which promote the arising of organised crime and with relevant specifically vulnerable factors and sectors (primary and secondary prevention). The authors argue that in a way every society gets the organised crime it deserves. Organising and regulating society often has the side effect of creating opportunities for individuals and groups which gain profit by exploiting the illegal markets that arise as a consequence of regulations. Whether the desire for regulation or the prevention of (organised) crime should prevail is a topic for political and social debate.
