In holding (albeit prospectively) that gender equality in the workplace was a general principle of Community law, whose purport went beyond the sole issue of equal wages expressly governed by Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome (now 141 EC), the landmark Defrenne judgment placed non-discrimination at the heart of the European social model, gave it direct horizontal effect at a time when such a step was considered by Sir Otto Kahn-Freund himself as ‘unlikely’, and set the scene for the development of Community labour law in terms of ‘fundamental personal rights’. An initially modest provision designed to avoid social dumping, Article 119 was thus raised by the Court to the constitutional status which the Treaty of Amsterdam would later endorse and expand. Thirty years on, such a move retains its significance for at least two reasons. First, while social policy has proved in the long run to be the ‘sick man of public policy’ in Europe, anti-discrimination has remained the focus of judicial and, in its wake, legislative activism, surviving the contemporary neo-liberal policy shift towards the ascendancy of employment over social concerns.

The increasing transnationalisation of regulation – and social life more generally – challenges the basic concepts of legal and political theory today. One of the key concepts being so challenged is authority. This discerning book offers a plenitude of resources and suggestions for meeting that challenge. Chapters by leading scholars from a wide variety of disciplines confront the limits of traditional state-based conceptions of authority, and propose new frameworks and metaphors. They also reflect on the methodological challenges of the transnational context, including the need for collaboration between empirical and conceptual analysis, and the value of historicising authority. Examining the challenge offered by transnational authority in a range of specific contexts, including security, accounting, banking and finance, and trade, Authority in Transnational Legal Theory analyses the relations between authority, legitimacy and power. Furthermore, this book also considers the implications of thinking about authority for other key concepts in transnational legal theory, such as jurisdiction and sovereignty. Comprehensive and engaging, this book will appeal to both legal academics and students of law. It will also prove invaluable to political scientists and political theorists interested in the concept of authority as well as social scientists working in the field of regulation. [Résumé éditeur]

L'objectif de ce dossier est d'examiner certains dysfonctionnements dans la régulation des marchés financiers globalisés qui sont souvent laissés de côté dans la réflexion menée actuellement sur le modèle institutionnel et normatif approprié pour prévenir de nouvelles crises. D'une très grande actualité, ces questions relèvent de la discipline du droit international privé en tant qu'elles concernent, d'une part, le champ d'application du droit des marchés ou la compétence des organes de régulation, d'autre part, le statut et le régime des divers acteurs privés de la globalisation financière. L'inadéquation des outils juridiques disponibles par rapport aux enjeux de celle-ci est souvent liée à l'emprise persistante de la distinction du public et du privé telle que configurée dans des contextes purement internes, comme le montrent la tâtonnante gouvernance des agences de notation dans leur dimension quasi-législative, ou encore la façon dont la dette souveraine se trouve à la merci des redoutables fonds « vautours ». Les mêmes raisons expliquent également les tensions et contradictions qui apparaissent lorsqu'il s'agit d'articuler divers outils de protection ou de responsabilité de source différente (nationale, fédérale, européenne), de façon à répondre de façon ajustée à des enjeux très complexes. On le voit aussi bien dans les incertitudes affectant, des deux côtés de l'Atlantique, la portée géographique de la régulation financière, que dans le difficile enchevêtrement des compétences des organes de régulation. (Premier paragraphe)

Should -and if so, how should -the international surrogacy market be regulated ? Is access to cross-border surrogacy a right attaching to the free movement of persons, or a risk for women in developing countries? Is this an issue of personal ethics or of global economics ? Arguments pit personal autonomy against public policy; democracy against sovereignty; the right to a child against the protection of women; anthropology against discrimination. The heated moral, religious and political debates which in recent years have followed spectacular revolutions in reproductive technology are naturally reflected in widely divergent national standpoints, of which international surrogacy agreements - that is, between intended parents issuing (usually) from a surrogacy-hostile jurisdiction and a surrogate in a surrogacy-friendly environment -have become the focal point.

This article attempts to respond to the question of the editors of this journal, on the implications of fundamental rights and recognition for private international law. It suggests that the paradigmatic transformations which are taking place in post-modern thought in the name of recgntion within the social sciences, have implications for the law which are already apparent in contemporary theories of justice and democracy. In particular, recognition comes with an epistemology and a critical project which may mean that, in the end, there is little that is specific to "international" legal cases ; few grounds on which to distinguish the public (international) from the private (international) as distinct legal disciplines ; and no real sense in separating the need for recongnition as a matter of individual experience or collective transmission. It is likely that the changing fault lines within the law, which are already at work to transform the idea and effects of sovereignty in public international law, will lead to an analogous rethinking of the way in which law governs personal relationships in multicultural - including crossborder - settings. In order to track the demands that recognition is making of the law in the later context, this article begins by examining the focus of the current doctrinal debate on recognition, which concerns the frontiers of the conflict of laws as method. It then explores the deeper epistemological and axiologial implications of recognition, which are brought within private international law through the gateway of human rights. In this light, it seeks finally to show that recognition can also be seen as excavating an unfinished project of methological pluralism.

What would be the governance implications if the introduction of the concept of network were to be made a technical-legal category of private international law? The idea behind the present contribution is an attempt to provide an alternative analysis, with technical purchase, which might in turn open the path towards a new pattern of jurisprudence in line with a global legal paradigm in three concrete instances which point to obvious inadequacies in the legal treatment of transnational private power (risk allocation between a parent company and its foreign subsidiary in respect of the conduct of the latter; transnational supply or value chains; and international commercial and investment arbitration). However technical the proposed change might appear, whether or not legal innovation is worthwhile on this point is ultimately a political assessment of the need for balance, responsibility and accountability in global governance.

Immunités juridictionnelles, garanties contractuelles et trusts, changement de la monnaie de compte, lois de blocage, pouvoir injonctif extra-territorial... Les questions de droit international privé sont désormais très visibles au sein des extraordinaires événements contemporains affectant la dette souveraine, où elles représentent un enjeu politique, économique et financier sans précédent. Celui-ci est à corréler à l'absence, défendue ou dénoncée, de tout régime international public d'insolvabilité des États. La défaillance souveraine relevait ainsi par le passé du langage de la diplomatie (fût-elle de la canonnière) ; elle donne lieu aujourd'hui à des mécaniques conventionnelles - négociations, restructurations - dont la dimension financière tend à effacer l'origine publique de la dette. La spéculation sur les obligations souveraines retombées dans le ressort du droit privé s'instaure alors, prévisiblement, en l'absence de régulation externe au marché ; elle se réalise au moyen d'un contentieux international particulièrement dense, qui est appelé à consolider lui-même les acquis de la lex mercatoria. [Premier paragraphe de l'article]
