This volume offers a unique, comprehensive view of the contents, context and potential of the Civil Code that in 2021 entered into force in the People’s Republic of China. The twenty-three essays herein collected, authored by distinguished Chinese and non-Chinese scholars, describe inner and outer perceptions about the Chinese Civil Code and analyze its likely impact within and outside the country. In so doing, they shed light not only on the comparative origins of current Chinese rules, but also on the potential influence that these rules may have in comparative terms in the future.
In EU Anti-Corruption Efforts in the Eastern Neighbourhood, Mihai-Razvan Corman provides a fresh and original legal analysis of the EU’s capability to tackle this complex and multi-facetted phenomenon beyond its borders. Key legal instruments and mechanisms from the external dimension are examined and contrasted to the EU’s anti-corruption arsenal towards Member States. Special attention is dedicated to the EU’s anti-corruption capability in the areas of organized and cross-border crime, public procurement and political party financing. In particular, this book focuses on the implications of the EU’s internal capability for its external efforts. It also explores to what extent there is a gap between the EU’s high ambitions of tackling corruption in the Eastern Neighbourhood and its actual legal capability. While EU anti-corruption efforts in Moldova serve as a crucial case study, its engagement in the other candidate countries from the EaP is also incorporated in the analysis.

An International Law and International Relations Perspective
In this book contributors engage into the theoretical dialogue about the interplay between terrorism and organized crime. Arguing in favor of its existence, the authors of the book seek to define the phenomenon of ‘organized criminal terrorism’ and examine the appropriateness of the international and regional legal frameworks on terrorism and organized crime to address this unitary criminal phenomenon. The volume reveals similarities and differences between terrorism and organized crime that support views in favor of new international legal instruments and those that defend the current approach to combat organized criminal terrorism. Contributors hope that the book will form the basis for a more informed discussion on the issue.
