Studies in Modern Law and Policy

Series Editor:

The series provides a forum for the discussion of new fields and new theoretical analyses of law. It seeks to publish research which is located at the interface of law and policy. It is devoted to the contextual analysis of law. Context is understood as meaning both the political and social context as well as the international context of law. Accordingly the series comprises international, European and comparative as well as interdisciplinary approaches to the study of law. A special emphasis lies on socio-legal studies of general legal trends.
