Global Wrongs and Private Law Remedies and Procedures Hardback
Edited by S. Banakas
Part of the JCL Studies in Comparative Law series
This book is a collection of papers, revised and updated by their authors, originally presented at the Journal of Comparative Law Workshop on Global Wrongs and Private Law Remedies and Procedures that took place in London in July 2009.
The essays look at a variety of global issues of individual, communal and social justice and the increasing role of private law remedies and procedures in addressing Global Wrongs, broadly defined as violations of personal or communal interests, whether already protected by domestic or international law, or emerging for protection for the first time in the dynamic of global communication, legal pluralism and the global exchange of ideas and values.
Global wrongs are either international or transnational, such as harm that geographically transcends domestic jurisdictional frontiers, or for which domestic courts claim universal jurisdiction, or local, but common to several jurisdictions.
The authors examine the role of private law in dealing with them in several different jurisdictions, including China, and draw important conclusions for global legal enforcement and legal development.
