Good news: Greeks and Germans talking to each other about European economic law


Klaus J. Hopt, Director emeritus at the Max-Planck-Institute for Comparative and Private International Law, Hamburg, and Dimitris Tzouganatos, Professor of Law at the National University of Athens, have edited a conference volume (in German) on “The New Challenges Facing European Economic Law. With Contributions from Germany and Greece” (Mohr Siebeck, Tübingen, 2014). The book, which is based on a symposium that took place near Athens in July 2013, deals with the “new” European economic and business law acts and proposals following the financial crisis, plus the problems of transformation and practical consequences for member states, taking as examples Germany and Greece. Particular attention is paid to European and international banking, company and capital market law, as well as consumer law, international procedural law – Brussels Ibis and the European Account Preservation Order – and antitrust.
