The papers cover the Court’s method of defining human rights standards with reference to the common tradition of all member states, the role of the European Convention on Human Rights, and, of course, the European Charter of Fundamental Rights inter alia the right of life, freedom of expression or data protection and Human Rights in the common foreign and security policy of the EU as well as in its development co-operation with third states. 2004, 223 S., kart., engl., 34,– €, 978-3-8305-0573-0 Peter Hilpold, Christoph Perathoner

The Human Right to Water
Water is indispensable for human life, yet more than 1 billion people do not have sufficient drinking water and 2.4 billion persons lack access to sanitation. The denial of access to water is an affront to human dignity. In 2002, the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights adopted General Comment No. 15 on the Right to Water. While this standard sets out a legal framework for the right to water, it is vital that our understanding of the legal foundations of this right is deepened. Moreover, it is important to explore the regulatory and practical dimensions of the right at the national and international levels, particularly given the commitment of states to the UN Millennium Development Goals. 2006, 213 S., 5 Abb., kart., engl., 42,– €, 978-3-8305-1168-7 Ralf Roßkopf (ed.)

Agents and Victims Non-governmental and Gender-related Persecution in International and National Law
In this publication, the Association for the Study of the World Refugee Problem (AWR) presents the results of international, multidisciplinary research on non-governmental and gender-related persecution. It introduces different approaches before continuing to highlight the answers currently derivable from international and European law. Against this background the laws and politics of various countries, including Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom are illustrated in separate chapters. This study may not produce a definite answer to its subject – yet thorough it AWR has managed to collect, introduce and interpret the necessary background information for any parties concerned with finding equitable solutions. 2004, 243 S., kart., engl., 32,– €, 978-3-8305-0813-7

Amnesty versus Accountability
Since the „Nuremberg Trial“, a growing array of instruments is available to hold predecessor regimes responsible for their involvement in horrendous crime. They range from international tribunals such as the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the ad hoc Tribunals for Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and for Rwanda (ICTR) to screening procedures to exclude former government officials from power. The book illustrates how various accountability mechanisms have been used in conflict management in El Salvador, Bosnia Herzegovina and South Africa. Building upon the findings of the case studies, the study depicts a hybrid model for a post-conflict accountability system combining the different accountability mechanisms. 2000, 295 S., kart., engl., 30,– €, 978-3-87061-894-0 Eric C.

The Forgotten Freedom September 11 as a Challenge for European Legal Principles
This volume is a polemic for freedom – or more concretely, for a liberal criminal law in Common Europe. In the conflict between security and freedom, the fragile constitutional criminal law is in danger of being crushed completely. The populist concept of promising total security destroys the very foundation of what it hopes to secure. The consequence is: Freedom is surely dying with security! The national differences within the European Union seek a common and reliable justification of liberal criminal law principles in a common European constitution. A minimalist but absolute constitutional criminal law is the „crash test dummy“ that will be sacrificed in the interest of the European integration process. European criminal law principles partially proved themselves with a promising philosophical start over several centuries, especially in Britain and France. However, they have been eroded, and now must prove themselves fully. Even worse, if these principles are ignored, the idea of a „United Europe“ vanishes. Never forget: It is freedom that constitutes the foundation of unity. Freedom brings about security. This is what this polemic demands. 2003, 191 S., kart., engl., 14 s/w Abb., 14,80 €, 978-3-8305-0543-3 Michael Bolle (ed.)

Cultural Property Protection
The German-Turkish Lawyers Association in cooperation with Koç University in Istanbul convened the conference „Protection of National and Private Cultural Properties“ in Istanbul from June 21 - 23, 2004 in order to deal with the urgent problems of protecting cultural property in Turkey and in other countries. Wolf-Dieter Heilmeyer stresses the importance of context and of provenance in modern archaeology. If the context is missing and nobody knows the provenance of an archaeological object, historical facts are lost and the object deprived of any archaeological importance. Assoc. Prof. Sibel Özel, explains about the legal protection of cultural property in Turkey, points out the present legal situation, stresses the shortcomings of the old statutes and urges new legislation. Spyridon Vrellis, professor of law of the University of Athens, presents the recent Greek Statute No. 3028 of 28 June 2002 on the Protection of Antiquities and the Cultural Heritage in General. Lawrence Kaye, attorney-at-law in New York City writes about „Cultural Property Disputes in Foreign Courts“ and gives a lively picture of the difficulties of recovery proceedings brought by source states in order to recover illegally exported art objects, especially archaeological finds. Kurt Siehr, formerly professor of law at the University of Zürich deals with the recent legal developments concerning art law in Europe. 2005, 140 S., kart., engl., 22,– €, 978-3-8305-1091-8 4

Eurozone Enlargement Exchange-Rate Choices and Adjusting Markets
Eastward enlargement will eventually bring about the adoption of the euro by the new member states. This will be a major event, quite distinct from mere accession to the European Union, and markets will be reshaped. This book covers the underlying mechanisms for the most important markets – i.e., labour markets, capital markets, as well as trade and foreign direct investments. It turns out that market adaptation is a key to the success of enlargement. Moreover, the role of exchange-rates will be of crucial importance, and may leave room for bargaining between old and new members. The research consortium, supported by the EU‘s 5th Framework Programme, consists of Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), University of Tartu (Estonia), VATT

Public Procurement in the European Union Directives and Case Law as at 01/03/2006
This book is the first treatise of its kind to systematically and comprehensively analyse the substantive and procedural framework of public procurement law at EU level. It starts with the new, Europe-wide binding directives on public procurement and compares the new provisions with the previous legal situation. Approximately 200 decisions of the European Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance have been analysed. Starting with practical overviews at the beginning of each chapter, the public procurement practitioner gets essential information about European public procurement law. This book was conceived for public procurement practitioners both now and in the years to come. 2006, 574 S., geb., engl., 69,80 €, 978-3-8305-1175-5 Julia Iliopoulos-Strangas, Hartmut Bauer (Hrsg.)

Eurozone Enlargement Reshaping Policies and Social Conflicts

Eurozone Enlargement Exploring Uncharted Waters EUROZONE Final Report
This final report of the research project „Ezoneplus – The Eastward Enlargement of the Eurozone“ provides a comprehensive analysis of economic and financial consequences of European Monetary Union (EMU) enlargement as well as policy advice. The study concludes that the Central and East European Countries (CEEC) may take decades to catch up economically with their western neighbours unless adequate assistance from the old member countries is being provided. Thus, the success of enlargement depends both on the speed of the process and on the procedure how to implement the right political and economic mechanisms towards sustainable self-financed growth. 2004, 130 S., kart., engl., 22,– €, 978-3-8305-0834-2 Lex Corijn, Thomas Krings (Hrsg.)

European Law in the GermanNorwegian Context Origins and Perspectives
In order to analyse the relationship between European law and the national legal systems this book focuses in its first part on the historical roots of the relations between German and Norwegian jurisprudence and law and discusses the question of national origins of European law versus an autonomous system of European law both in an overview approach and in an exemplary comparative approach. In a second part perspectives of European law are discussed in the specific area of EU an EEA rules concerning national public interests and public ownership. 2001, 152 S., kart., dt./engl., 19,50 €, 978-3-8305-0248-7 5

EUROPEAN INTEGRATION / CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE Peter-Christian Müller-Graff, Erling Selvig (eds.) Martin Seidel

The Approach to European Law in Germany and Norway
This volume is devoted to a comparative analysis of the approach to European law in Germany and Norway. The topic is dealt with under four approach aspects: in legal doctrine, in domestic legislation, in national jurisprudence and in national government and public administration. 2004, 182 S., kart., dt./engl., 24,80 €, 978-3-8305-0929-5 Peter-Christian Müller-Graff, Erling Selvig (eds.)

European Economic and Monetary Union Constitutional and Legal Aspects
... The main reason why – irrespective of the surrender of monetary sovereignty to the European Community – the competence and responsibility for economic policy has remained with the Member States even after Maastricht is that transferring the responsibility for economic policy to the European Community – as in the case of monetary policy – would have required the Community’s conversion from a confederation into a federation. ... 2001, 81 S., kart., engl., 15,– €, 978-3-8305-0100-8 Michael Wollenschläger (ed.)

The European Economic Area Enlarged
The recent enlargement of the European Union is being paralleled by an enlargement of the European Economic Area. This development creates new political, economic, and legal challenges. At the same time it encounters a significant deepening of European Community law in general and the four transnational market freedoms in particular. This volume presents an analysis of this twofold development regarding three types of challenges: to the institutions and the Treaties, to the transnational market freedoms, and to energy and resource management. 2006, 126 S., kart., engl., 24,80 €, 978-3-8305-1194-6 Per Kristen Mydske, Ingo Peters (eds.)

Asylum and Integration in Member States of the EU Integration of Recognized Refugee Families as Defined by the Geneva Convention Considering their Status with the Respect to the Law of Residence
The public awareness of the integration problem has risen all over the world, especially after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. In Europe this finally led to the insight that European States are immigration countries. Against this background the Association for the Study of the World Refugee Problem (AWR) illuminates the immigration and integration problem in selected European States without representing these states‘ or EU‘s official opinions. 2003, 407 S., kart., engl., 45,– €, 978-3-8305-0511-2 CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE Thilo Bodenstein, Michael Bolle (eds.)

The Transformation of the European Nation State
This book contains the lectures given at a seminar in Berlin June 3-4, 2005, arranged by the E.ON Ruhrgas scholarship program for political science at Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP). It was held against the backdrop of the negative referenda in France and the Netherlands on the EU constitution, and the upcoming elections to the German Bundestag. The contributions addressed the following issues: „Does Europe matter? Autonomy or convergence into a common space of politics?“; „Europe and the Welfare State“; „Post National Security Policy“; „Regional Politics, National or European“; „Power and Democracy in the transformation process“. All of these themes denote challenges to the political and societal developments in Europe over the past 50 years, challenges, which may lead to more radical changes in the future. 2006, 202 S., 4 s/w Abb., 8 Tab., kart., engl., 29,– €, 978-3-8305-1222-6

After Eastward Enlargement: Political Economy Perspectives on a New Europe
With the 2004 eastward enlargement, the European Union became the largest common market in the world. The European Union, however, also became more heterogeneous as regards internal economic development levels. The new member states still have to reform their economies in order to catch up with the old member states. Both the widening and deepening of Europe, along with economic challenges in the new member states has important implications for the European political economy. This volume presents a selection political economy of the contributions of the Young Researchers Enlargement Conferences (YouREC)-Project

Real Property Rights in Lithuania
Along with the restoration of the independent Republic of Lithuania, a comprehensive land reform involving privatisation and denationalisation of land and other real property was undertaken in order to restructure the legal, social and economic relations in the field of land ownership and land use. The principal objective of the reform was to create a free real estate market. The historical situation and the complicated development of public circulation of real estate have caused a number of problems typical of a transition period. By amendment of several laws and adoption of the new Civil Code and the Code of Civil Procedure, existing deficiencies of legal regulation were eliminated to a large extent to complete the creation of a comprehensive legal system that were required for the sound functioning of the real estate market. This publication provides a survey on effective legal regulation of the real estate issues, while also placing special focus on the Real Property Registration and Mortgage systems. 2005, 189 S., kart., engl., 36,80 €, 978-3-8305-1065-9 Torsten Lorenz (ed.)

Notaries in Europe – Growing Fields of Competence Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia
This publication is the attempt of an appraisal of the notarial tasks within the justice system of selected Central European countries. In it a piece of regional European legal culture is mirrored, which constitutes the fundament that unites legal practitioniers in the notarial field of these countries. During the Austrian presidency of the Cooperation of Central European Civil Law Notaries (CCEN) the need became evident to document the tasks and activities of the notaries on a comparative basis. This offers opportunities not only for information about commonalities and individual rules, but also to learn from each other about potentials of development and thereby to contribute to the growing fields of competence of notaries with the European Union. 2007, 236 S., kart., engl., 42,80 €, 978-3-8305-1372-8 Uwe Müller, Helga Schultz (eds.)

Cooperatives in Ethnic Conflicts: Eastern Europe in the 19th and early 20th Century
Experts from the United States, Germany and East Central Europe show, that economic nationalism was the driving force behind the development of cooperatives in Eastern Europe and that the self-help movement reflected the strive for national self-determination almost from the outset. Evidence from Eastern Europe, including Greece and Russia, makes the volume a comprehensive work on the interrelation of economy and nationalism and offers new, refreshing perspectives on a topic on the border of cultural studies and economic and social history. The volume is addressed to experts in the fields of research on nationalism and economic and social history. 2006, 384 S., geb., engl., 58,– €, 978-3-8305-1204-2

National Borders and Economic Disintegration in Modern East Central Europe
Borders and border regions are one of the most remarkable aspects of 19th century European nationbuilding. Yet, unfortunately, they have been one of the more neglected fields of research, especially in economic history. Old and new borders had particular importance in the ethnic mix of post-1918 East Central Europe, during the era of nation state-building, especially in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and the Baltic States. 2002, 295 S., 18 Abb., kart., engl., 40,– €, 978-3-8305-0274-6

History and Culture of Economic Nationalism in East Central Europe
Although economic nationalism was a general policy outcome of nation states, East Central Europe was especially affected because of its backwardness, its belated nation building and its ethnic mixture. Already the national movements called “each to his own” to strengthen national power. During the interwar years the young nation states pursued policies of state interventionism, whose heritage is alive until today. During the last decade, economic nationalism became an issue of research, influenced by the dependency theory and cultural studies. 2006, 327 S., geb., engl., 51,– €, 978-3-8305-1174-8 Ratomier M.

Towards a Knowledge-based Society in the Baltic Sea Region
One can view it as a stroke of luck for the political and cultural development of European civilisation that the ‚discovery‘ of a new European region – the Baltic Sea region – has coincided with the establishment of a new paradigm for the scientific interpretation of social and political (not to mention economic) processes: The concept of a ‚knowledge society‘ – the phenomenon itself was not new – entered the scientific and political conflicts and analyses with such élan in the 1990s that today it no longer requires any further justification. 2002, 130 S., kart., engl., 19,– €, 978-3-8305-0275-3 Marko Lehti (ed.)

The Challenge of Mobility in the Baltic Sea Region
Mobility is rapidly becoming one of the most salient features of European societies. This process is particularly visible in the Baltic Sea area. Here, the European Union meets its immediate neighbours; a wealthy Scandinavia meets struggling post-communist economies; long-established democracies meet developing ones; secularised Protestantism meets fervent Catholicism and Orthodoxy; and post-modernity meets traditionalism, modernisation and nation-building. 2005, 207 S., kart., engl., 29,– €, 978-3-8305-0924-0 Jan Hecker-Stampehl, Aino Bannwart, Dörte Brekenfeld, Ulrike Plath (Hrsg.)

Changes, Challenges and Chances Conclusions and Perspectives of Baltic Sea Area Studies
The Baltic Sea Region is a discernible area in the New Europe, with more or less open borders, a rapidly growing economy, common political interest, common security problems, and similar environmental and transport calamities. The region is culturally not homogeneous but it endures related identities, overlapping heritages, with a – in large parts – common history. The idea of a violent, military conflict among the states of the Baltic Sea Region would seem to have become unthinkable. The process of increasing cooperation – and the horrors of war! – have led to a web of interdependence, held together by interest, policies, treaties etc. As a result, this region is now a model of peaceful transformation.

This book sets out to explore the phenomenon of transnationalization and regionalization of civil society through a case study of cross-border NGO cooperation in the Baltic Sea region. The theoretical ambition is to contribute to a greater understanding of the processes behind the formation of a regional civil society, and to propose a conceptual model that would make such understanding easier. At the same time, at the empirical level, the study sheds light on the context-specific factors that have shaped the mode of civil society regionalization in the Baltic Sea area. In the book, the image of the developing regional civil society as seen through the eyes of the involved actors, is set against the background of the New Regionalist ideas that prevailed among observers of Baltic Sea politics in the early 1990s. The investigation shows that the regional civil society cooperation structures around the Baltic Sea are neither as ‘civil’ – in the sense of being autonomous from the governmental sphere – nor as ‘regional’ as it has often been assumed. 2007, 295 S., kart., engl., 39,– €, 978-3-8305-1252-3

Political Culture: Values and Identities in the Baltic Sea Region
Reconciling the diversity of political cultures, values and national identities with the European integration project is one of the most fundamental challenges contemporary Europe is facing. This challenge is readily apparent in the Baltic Sea region with its mosaic of peoples, cultures and identities. The impact of the ongoing process of European integration on the postCommunist societies on the Eastern rim of the Baltic Sea is indisputable. The negotiations between the European Union and the East European candidate countries were in fact accompanied by a large scale transfer of organizational models and administrative routines designed to protect human rights and promote democracy. But European integration is just one of the challenges confronting countries, which are also engaged in state- and nation-building as well as democratic consolidation. The countries on the Western rim of the Baltic Sea have also been exposed to the increasing pressure of globalization and European integration. The three former Soviet republics of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been up against yet another challenge. After almost half a century of Soviet tutelage, they now have to engage in independent state- and nation-building. Theoretically, this made Baltic democracy particularly fragile. Yet the Baltic countries have also passed this litmus test. 2007, 207 S., kart., engl., 29,– €, 978-3-8305-1260-8 Carsten Schymik, Valeska Henze, Jochen Hille (Hrsg.)

Constitutionalism – Old Concepts, New Worlds German Contributions to the VIth World Congress of the International Association of Constitutional Law (IACL), Santiago de Chile 2004
The Congress for instance discussed the problem of a constitutional recognition of minority rights. Another workshop tried to elucidate the influence of older constitutional models on the process of revising or remaking newer constitutions. Another topic related to the relationship between constitutional protections of the freedom of expression or privacy and the internet. A further workshop explored the impact of constitutional human rights norms on legislation within fields of private law. The Congress also dealt with the meaning and incidents of a constitutional right to self-determination and the various techniques by which economic, social and cultural rights have been constitutionalized. Another workshop covered the issue of local democracy and representation as a consequence of federalism, decentralization and international obligations. Although constitutions respond to national circumstances, their substance is increasingly constrained by external topics, another current development of constitutional law. Another focus of discussion centered on the question as to what extent migrants should be required to conform to the majority’s constitutional values or to what extent their difference should be respected.

Its aim is to complement all those other textbooks that have been written on these subjects by illustrating how events can conspire to render all the wonderful theory quite worthless.

Italian Opera in Central Europe Volume 1: Institutions and Ceremonies
When opera emerged around 1600 in Italy as a new musico-dramatic genre, its development and dissemination was paralleled in many other countries. It was especially in Central Europe – the Holy Roman Empire, Poland, and adjacent regions – where Italian opera and the dramatic concept of the entirely sung drama gained a prominent position in musical life, in courtly and bourgeois culture, and in literary and musical thought. This process began as early as 1614 with the first performance of an Italian opera north of the Alps, while Italian opera as a Central European tradition saw its decline around 1780. The present volume illuminates this process from two new perspectives. Several, primarily historically-oriented case studies, centred on selected cities, courts and regions from Ljubljana to Hamburg and from Amsterdam to Warsaw, focus on the institution of Italian opera, its organisational principles, its mechanisms of establishment, and its cultivation and decline. Opera as a manifestation and implementation of social and cultural practices is reflected in the concept of ceremonies. Based upon the principal idea of ‚opera as a mirror of ordered society‘, its facets range from the etiquette and rituals of the opera performance, to literary traditions, to the choice and treatment of operatic subject as an expression of social order and behaviour. Institutions and Ceremonies is the first of three volumes in the research project, „Italian Opera in Central Europe, 1614–c.1780“, which is part of the programme Musical Life in Europe (1600–1900) launched by the European Science Foundation Humanities Programme in 1998 and concluded in 2002. 2006, 329 S., 11 s/w Abb., geb., engl., 39,– €, 978-3-8305-0381-1

Les sociétés de musique en Europe 1700–1920 Structures, pratiques musicates, sociabilités
L’institutionnalisation du concert public en Europe est en grande partie liée à la naissance et au développement des sociétés de musique à partir du XVIIIe siècle. Au même titre que d’autres formes de sociabilité bourgeoise qui prennent forme à la même époque, elles ont engendré, chez la bourgeoisie en voie de constitution, une nouvelle prise de conscience culturelle et esthétique ainsi que de nouvelles pratiques musicales. Les sociétés de musique deviennent au XIXe siècle l’une des institutions principales – sinon l’institution centrale – pour l’organisation des concerts et jouent un rôle décisif dans une série d’évolutions qui affectent la vie musicale comme, par exemple, les transformations du répertoire, la formation des canons ou le déve-

The Faces of Nature in Enlightenment Europe
The essays collected in this volume describe a range of Enlightenment attempts to make Nature visible, to give nature a face – and sometimes a body. These efforts spanned natural philosophy and map-making, the opera and the menagerie, ribald satires on learned women and ponderous treatises of natural theology, the garden and the museum. Savants and midwives, monarchs and philosophers, country squires and urban academicians all participated in staging the Enlightenment pageant of nature. The essays draw upon sources in French, German, Italian, English, and Latin and combine perspectives from the history of science and medicine, the history of art and music, as well as from cultural and intellectual history. They show nature on display, nature demonstrated, nature personified, and sometimes even nature speaking, the Enlightenment goddess par excellence. 2003, 288 S., 14 Abb., geb. mit SU, dt./engl./frz., 39,– €, 978-3-8305-0360-6 Michael Fend, Michel Noiray (eds.)

Musical Education in Europe (1770–1914) Compositional, Institutional and Political Challenges
Volume 1 and Volume 2 In the long nineteenth century music acquired unprecedented cultural value across Europe. The resulting demand for music education was shaped according to the political, economic, and religious conditions of individual nations and cities, but it also gave a new impetus to the circulation of teachers, students, and pedagogical models. The gradual institutionalisation of conservatories is studied here as a field of conflicting aesthetic as well as political ideas. 2005, 763 S., geb., dt./engl./frz., 89,– €, 978-3-8305-1099-4 Peter-Eckhard Knabe (éd.)

Corporate Governance Essays in Honor of Horst Albach
Corporate Governance is a subject of great interest to academics, investors, and politicians throughout the world. Corporate governance issues arise in institutions if there is a potential conflict of interest among the stakeholders and transaction costs due to this conflict cannot be eliminated. Various economies have evolved different mechanisms to resolve the corporate governance issues. Anglo-Saxon systems differ from European and Japanese systems, and Eastern Europe and china, for instance, who experiment about the way private organizations should be governed. Despite the great interest and intense debate, empirical evidence on the effectiveness of various governance systems is still sparse. This book – meanwhile in its 2nd edition – brings together most current contributions from various perspectives and from an international angle. The contributions cover topics such as: - Corporate governance in transnational companies - Corporate investors and firm control - Corporate governance and human capital - Corporate governance and principal/agent issues - Corporate governance and challenges for management. This book is an essential reading for academics, university students, practitioners, investors, politicians, and legislators. The book is in honor of Horst Albach, a scholar who has influenced the scientific world in a very significant way. The editor of this volume, Joachim Schwalbach, is Professor of International Management at Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany. 2.

Practical Reasoning
Human beings have always some reason to do the things they do. Their own needs, interests, and goals motivate them to do what they do. Moreover, human beings use frequently the reasons they have to perform certain acts as arguments in practical reasonings in which they get involved in order to justify what they do, or in order to find out what they should reasonably do, taking into consideration all the relevant variables implied in the concrete contexts and situations, in which they have to act. The reasons human beings have to perform different acts, and the way they use such reasons in practical inferences and reasonings are the subject matter of this essay in which I intend to clarify how the limited, „bounded“ rationality characteristic of human beings functions in different fields of action and practical deliberation. 2002, 112 S., kart., engl., 10,– €, 978-3-8305-0298-2 Martin Storksdieck
