Abstract

Les années quatre-vingt sont celles d’une nouvelle dynamique pour la construction européenne. Le « grand marché », pièce centrale de l’Acte unique, et l’Union économique et monétaire, inscrite dans le traité de Maastricht, peuvent passer pour un deuxième âge d’or après celui des années soixante. Quel rôle les États, la Commission, les lobbies patronaux et les syndicats ont-ils joué dans la conception et la mise en œuvre de cette relance ? Quels furent la vision et les intérêts des différents acteurs ? Comment l’alliance nouée entre la Commission et quelques centaines de très grandes entreprises européennes a-t-elle été déterminante ? Pourquoi cet élan n’a pas porté tous les fruits attendus ? En associant les travaux d’historiens à ceux d’économistes spécialistes des questions européennes et des entreprises, en réunissant lors d’une table ronde finale des acteurs majeurs de ce passé récent et des intervenants encore en prise avec les réalités d’aujourd’hui de l’économie européenne, ces actes apportent un regard neuf sur cette deuxième naissance du projet européen.

Abstract

About the publicationWhile the harmonisation of the rules on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments has been given priority in other regional economic communities, in particular the European Union, any similar effort to harmonise the rules on recognition and enforcement of member states has been conspicuously absent in the SACU, and in fact the most of the African continent – a situation which needs to receive immediate attention.This book considers the approaches followed by a number of international and regional organisations, including the EU, the USA, Australia and New Zealand and Latin American States, with a view to identifying the most suitable approach to be adopted for the SACU.Table of ContentsForewordIntroduction and background1 Introduction2 Key concepts2.1 Regional economic integration2.2 The Southern African Customs Union2.3 Private international law2.4 Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments2.5 Harmonisation3 Origin and background of study3.1 The lack of global recognition and enforcement regime3.2 The lack of a regional recognition and enforcement regime3.3 International developments in the field3.4 Regional integration on the African continent4 Rationale for the study4.1 Trade facilitation4.2 Facilitation of regional economic integration5 Framework of analysis5.1 Territorial sovereignty, obligation theory, comity and reciprocity5.2 States’ interest in recognising and enforcing foreign judgments6 Research questions7 Scope and exclusions from scope8 Chapter outlineRecognition and enforcement of foreign judgments – overview of international and regional harmonisation efforts1 Introduction1.1 Bilateral treaties as means of harmonising enforcement rules1.2 Multilateral conventions as means of harmonising recognition and enforcement rules2 Harmonisation of recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments at the international level2.1 The Hague Conference on Private International Law2.2 Some other intergovernmental and private organisations2.3 Evaluation of international harmonisation efforts3 Harmonisation of recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments at the regional level3.1 European community Brussels/Lugano Regime3.2 United States full faith and credit approach3.3 The Trans-Tasman judicial area3.4 Latin American states4 Feasibility of the different approaches for the SACU4.1 Brussels/Lugano regime4.2 United States of America full faith and credit approach4.3 Trans-Tasman Judicial System4.4 Latin America5 Proposed approach for the SACU6 Some factors likely to influence harmonisation in SACU7 Concluding remarksComparison of multilateral conventions on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments1 Introduction and overview of types of multilateral recognition and enforcement conventions1.1 Single convention1.2 Double convention1.3 Analysis1.4 Variations on traditional convention types2 The Hague Convention on Recognition and Enforcement2.1 Material scope of application of Convention2.2 Procedural requirements for enforcement2.3 Grounds for non-recognition3 The Hague Choice of Court Convention3.1 Material scope of application of Convention3.2 Procedural requirements for recognition and enforcement3.3 Grounds for non-recognition4 The EU Brussels Convention/Regulation4.1 Material scope of application of Convention/ Regulation4.2 Procedural requirements for recognition and enforcement4.3 Grounds for non-recognition5 The Montevideo Convention5.1 Material scope of application of Convention5.2 Procedural requirements5.3 Grounds for non-recognition6 Overview of the Conventions discussed6.1 Hague Convention on Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments6.2 Hague Choice of Court Convention6.3 EU Brussels Regulation/Convention6.4 Montevideo Convention7 Concluding remarksComparison of Existing Laws on Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in the SACUand Proposals for Draft Convention1 Introduction2 Recognition and enforcement under the common law tradition2.1 Administration of Justice Act, 19202.2 Foreign Judgment (Reciprocal Enforcement) Act, 19333 Overview of relevant statutes3.1 Swaziland3.2 Lesotho3.3 Botswana3.4 South Africa3.5 Namibia4 Comparative analysis4.1 Scope of application4.2 Requirements for enforcement4.3 Procedural requirements4.4 Setting aside of registered judgments4.5 International competence4.6 Other matters the Convention may include5 Proposed text for a convention on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments6 ConclusionThe recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments – conclusions1 Introduction – The need for a harmonised recognition and enforcement regime2 International and regional harmonisation efforts3 Overview of some of the major multilateral recognition and enforcement instruments4 Statutory instruments currently in force in the SACU5 Final commentsBibliography

Abstract

The concepts of cultural diversity and cultural identity are at the forefront of the political debate in many western societies. In Europe, the discussion is stimulated by the political pressures associated with immigration flows, which are increasing in many European countries. The imperatives that current immigration trends impose on European democracies bring to light a number of issues that need to be addressed. What are the patterns and dynamics of cultural integration? How do they differ across immigrants of different ethnic groups and religious faiths? How do they differ across host societies? What are the implications and consequences for market outcomes and public policy? Which kind of institutional contexts are more or less likely to accommodate the cultural integration of immigrants? All these questions are crucial for policy makers and await answers. This book aims to provide a stepping stone to the debate. Taking an economic perspective, this edited book presents a current, comparative picture of the process of cultural integration of immigrants across Europe. It documents the main economic debates on the causes and consequences of cultural integration of immigrants, and provides detailed descriptions of the cultural and economic integration process in seven main European countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. It also compares the European context with the integration of immigrants in the United States.

Abstract

China has earned a reputation for lax environmental standards that allegedly attract corporations more interested in profit than in moral responsibility and, consequently, further negate incentives to raise environmental standards. Surprisingly, Ka Zeng and Joshua Eastin find that international economic integration with nation-states that have stringent environmental regulations facilitates the diffusion of corporate environmental norms and standards to Chinese provinces. At the same time, concerns about “green” tariffs imposed by importing countries encourage Chinese export-oriented firms to ratchet up their own environmental standards. The authors present systematic quantitative and qualitative analyses and data that not only demonstrate the ways in which external market pressure influences domestic environmental policy but also lend credence to arguments for the ameliorative effect of trade and foreign direct investment on the global environment.
