    The Legal Challenges of Social Media

    Edited by David Mangan, Lorna E. Gillies

This book engages with the legal implications of social media from public and private law perspectives and outlines how the law, in various legal sub-disciplines and with varying success, has endeavoured to adapt existing tools to social media.

    Judicial Cooperation in European Private Law

    Edited by Fabrizio Cafaggi, Stephanie Law

  4. Rethinking International Commercial Arbitration

    Rethinking International Commercial Arbitration

    Gilles Cuniberti
    Arbitration is the normal and preferred mode for resolving international commercial disputes. It presents an essential advantage over national courts by offering neutrality of adjudication, but is currently only available where both parties have consented to it. This innovative book proposes a fundamental rethink of this assumption and argues that arbitration should become the default mode of resolution in international commercial disputes. Learn More

  13. Private International Law and Public law

    Private International Law and Public law

    Edited by Horatia Muir Watt
    The conspicuous absence of private international law from the current global governance debate may be traced in part to its traditional ‘public law taboo’, fed by liberal understandings of statehood and its characteristic public/private divide, in the context of the modern schism between the public and private branches of international law. Alongside an original introduction, the materials assembled in this important collection are of immediate interest to both public and private international lawyers, and more broadly to all those interested in new forms of global governance and the theory of law beyond the state.

  18. Private International Law, Art and Cultural Heritage

    Private International Law, Art and Cultural Heritage

    Christa Roodt
    In this timely book Christa Roodt demonstrates how the structure and method of private international law can be applied in its expanding relationship with cultural heritage law. In particular, she explores the use of private international law in the context of ownership claims and the illicit trafficking of cultural objects. She shows how, in decisions about classification and the public policy exception, and in the application and treatment of foreign public law, value-rationality and mutuality can defeat the dogmatic underpinnings of conflicts and jurisdiction rules that frustrate the achievement of global solidarity.
