Droit commercial international

Introduction

International Commercial Law - Research Guide International Law

Le droit commercial international est un corps de règles, de principes et de pratiques coutumières qui gouvernent les activités commerciales transfrontalières des personnes de droit privé.  En tant que tel, le droit commercial international fait partie du droit international privé, alors que le droit du commerce international, qui régit les relations commerciales entre les États, fait partie du droit international économique, qui est une branche du droit international public.  Comme les principes et les règles coutumières applicables aux transactions transfrontalières diffèrent en fonction des cultures, il existe une forte tendance à l'harmonisation et à l'unification de ces règles.

    Ferrari, F. and Gillette, C.P. (eds.), International Sales Law, Cheltenham, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017.

    This authoritative collection presents carefully selected scholarly articles that describe and examine the principles of international sales law, as set forth in the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). These seminal pieces reflect various viewpoints of authors from different countries and legal systems, and offer a range of distinct methodological approaches to legal analysis. Together with an original introduction by the editors, these volumes provide the reader with both an international and an interdisciplinary perspective on the CISG and its application.

  • Gillette, C.P. and Walt, S.D., The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods: Theory and Practice, New York, Cambridge University Press, 2016.

    Gillette, C.P. and Walt, S.D., The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods: Theory and Practice, New York, Cambridge University Press, 2016.

    Updated and expanded for the second edition, this volume provides attorneys, academics and students with a detailed yet accessible overview of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Adopted by more than eighty nations and governing a significant portion of international sales, the CISG regulates contract formation, performance, risk of loss, conformity to contractual requirements and remedies for breach. This volume explains the CISG doctrines and their ambiguities, and appraises the extent to which the doctrines reduce transaction costs for commercial actors. Its topic-based approach will be ideal for those pursuing academic analysis or subject-specific research.

  • Toth, O., Lex Mercatoria in Theory and Practice, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2017.

    Toth, O., Lex Mercatoria in Theory and Practice, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2017.

    The book offers a theoretically justified and pragmatic concept of the so-called 'lex mercatoria' contributing to the debate concerning the existence of this law as an autonomous, a-national and universal legal system established by trade practice. It argues that a rule of the lex mercatoria is established if there is a majority congruent behaviour within a business community followed out of fear of criticism and a willingness to criticize others in case of deviation. This two-element test increases legal certainty and potentially reduces the time and costs of proving the rule. Case studies are included to illustrate the practical implications of the analysis and more difficult issues such as burden of proof, admissible evidence and the role of written harmonization measures are also considered. The approach adopted in the book reduces the elusiveness of the concept and offers an analysis which makes the lex mercatoria clearer for scholars and more attractive for practitioners.

  • Schaffstein, S., Doctrine of "Res Judicata" before International Commercial Arbitral Tribunals, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2016.

    Schaffstein, S., Doctrine of "Res Judicata" before International Commercial Arbitral Tribunals, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2016.

    Today, international commercial disputes regularly involve multiple parties, contracts, and issues. As a result, the number of disputes that are tried in two or more different forums has increased, giving rise to difficult issues regarding the conclusive and preclusive effects of prior judgments or awards. As a result, the doctrine of res judicata , which requires that a final decision by a court or arbitral tribunal be conclusive and that it should not be re-litigated, is of increasing significance. Dr Silja Schaffstein provides the first practical and comprehensive guidelines for matters of res judicata for international commercial arbitration practitioners. The work sets out the transnational principles in the form of guidelines for international arbitrators.

  • Bobek, M. and J. Prassl (eds.), Air Passenger Rights: Ten Years On, Oxford and Portland, Oregon, Hart Publishing, 2016.

    Regulation 261/2004 on Air Passengers’ Rights has been amongst the most high-profile pieces of EU secondary legislation of the past years, generating controversial CJEU judgments, from ex parte IATA to Sturgeon. The Regulation has led to equally challenging decisions across the Member States, with domestic courts holding that a Regulation could not be relied upon by an individual claimant or even threatening outright to refuse an application of its provisions. The economic stakes are significant for passengers and airlines alike, and despite the European Commission’s recent publication of reform proposals controversies appear far from settled. At the same time the Regulation should, according to the Treaty, have the same direct and general application in all the Member States of the Union. How, then, can this diversity be explained? What implications do they have for the EU’s regulatory strategy at large? This book brings together leading experts in the field to present a series of case studies from 10 different Member States as well as the extra-territorial application of Regulation 261 combined with high-level analysis from the perspectives of Aviation law and EU law.
