The Liberalisation of Public Procurement and its Effects on the Common Market

The Liberalisation of Public Procurement and its Effects on the Common Market

Author: Christopher Bovis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/02/2020

First published in 1998, Public Procurement in the European Community has been considered as the most-important non-tariff barrier for the completion of the common market and its liberalisation reflects the attempts of law and policy makers to enhance competitiveness in the public sector and achieve uniform patterns of industrial efficiency. The opening-up of procurement stresses the fact that the Member States must embark upon a process of changing their public sector management ethos and adopt more market-orientated parameters (value for money, efficiency, improved risk management, market testing, outsourcing, private finance, savings) in the delivery of public services, alongside the principles of transparency and public accountability. The book is addressed to academics and researchers in the fields of law, public policy and government studies, legal practitioners, policy makers, government officials as well as industry executives. It provides a multi-disciplinary analysis of public procurement law and policy and assesses its impact on the European integration process. It investigates the implications of the opening-up of the European public markets on other legal and economic systems in the world and analyses the regulation of public purchasing as part of the emerging Economic Law of the European Union.

Introduction to Company Law

Introduction to Company Law

Author: Paul (Senior research fellow, Senior research fellow, Harris Manchester College, Oxford) Davies Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/01/2020

Since the financial crisis of 2007 to 2009 the role of the company in society, especially the role of publicly traded companies, has acquired a political salience that was largely absent in the decades before the crisis. This concern has been reflected in both enhanced reporting requirements and in the latest version of the Corporate Governance and Stewardship Codes applicable to the largest companies. This books analyses these developments in full, as well as the more fundamental proposals for reform of corporate law that have been advanced outside official circles. The book also examines the functions of the five core features of company law-separate legal personality, limited liability, centralized management, shareholder control, and transferability of shares. It finally analyses the legal strategies available for moderating the frictions that these core features nevertheless generate for those providing the necessary inputs for a company's business. Written by one of the field's foremost experts, Paul Davies' Introduction to Company Law provides a comprehensive conceptual introduction to the subject, giving readers a clear framework with which to navigate the intricacies of company law.

Corporate Duties to the Public

Corporate Duties to the Public

In a world where the grocery store may be more powerful than the government and corporations are the governors rather than the governed, the notion of corporations being only private actors is slowly evaporating. Gone is the view that corporations can focus exclusively on maximizing shareholder wealth. Instead, the idea that corporations owe duties to the public is capturing the attention of not only citizens and legislators, but corporations themselves. This book explores the deepening connections between corporations and the public. It explores timely - and often controversial - public issues with which corporations must grapple including the corporate purpose, civil and criminal liability, taxation, human rights, the environment and corruption. Offering readers an encompassing, balanced, and systematic understanding of the most pertinent duties corporations should bear, how they work, whether they are justified, and how they should be designed in the future, this book clarifies corporations' roles vis-a-vis the public.

Contemporary Property Law

Contemporary Property Law

Author: Paul Jackson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/2020

First published in 1999, this is the first of two books based on papers given at the conference organised by the Centre for Property Law at Reading in March 1998 under the title 'Contemporary Issues in Property Law'. Speakers represented jurisdictions from around the world. Their subjects ranged from the theoretical and jurisprudential to the severely practical. No one who attended the conference - or subsequently reads the papers in this and the following book, Property Law: Current Issues and Debates - can believe in the picture of property law as archetypical, dry as dust, black letter, law. Questions of human rights, changes in social structures, technological developments are all shown to have their impact on property law, calling for careful analysis of the present law and practical proposals for reforms to reflect new developments.

Comparative Consumer Sales Law

Comparative Consumer Sales Law

Author: Geraint Howells Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/12/2019

For many years, legislators around the world have responded to the particular needs of consumers by introducing dedicated rules for consumer sales contracts.

This book offers a snapshot of the current state of consumer sales law in a range of jurisdictions around the globe. It provides both an overview of the law in selected jurisdictions and compares the application of these rules in the context of two case scenarios.
