  • The Essence of Privacy, and Varying Degrees of Intrusion

    … This brief comment will address the 6 October 2015 CJEU Grand Chamber ruling in Max Schrems, asking what it tells us about the status of two fundamental rights in the EU legal order, namely the right to the respect for private life (privacy) and the right to the protection of personal data (EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, Articles 7 and 8…

  • Schrems v. Commissioner: A Biblical Parable of Judicial Power

    … David v. Goliath Even before his big win at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on Tuesday, Maximillian Schrems’ seemingly quixotic campaign against the giants of America’s shadowy security-complex and Internet service sector had attracted colorful allusions to the biblical tale of David and Goliath. It’s a good story, except…

  • How to Leave the Euro More or Less Legally

    … out to be quite a historic decision: relations between England and the rest of Europe have never been quite the same since.) In similar fashion, it is argued today that as Greece was admitted originally to the eurozone under false accounting pretences, its membership of the single currency has been a living lie and therefore could be annulled…

  • Looking for the ‘Justice’ in EU civil and private law?

    … It is great to see this debate on the EU justice deficit. To me this debate goes to the fundamental issue of legitimacy, with which the EU continues to grapple. However I have one regret, which relates to the lack of attention devoted to the European Union’s justice deficit in the area of civil and private law. All of us enter into private law…

  • How just is the EU, or: is there a ‘new’ European deficit?

    … Let us face it: the EU affects the lives of many people in ways they perceive as profoundly unjust. Lives are dramatically affected by the policies of austerity, widely understood to be EU-imposed. With the Court of Justice appearing to stand for its own authority and EU autonomy at any cost; with migrants attempting to reach fortress Europe…

  • “Italian-style” secession and the semi-indifference of national politics

    … While elsewhere in Europe independence through secession from a sovereign state is deemed to be an issue that touches upon the very foundation of the constitutional pact, of living together,[i] in Italy it does not raise any public discussion beyond academic and judicial circles.[ii] As if, by downgrading the constitutional essence…

  • Nudging as a Common Practice in International Aid

    … When asked last week by Alexandra Kemmerer and Maximilan Steinbeis to submit a comment on nudging, I accepted at short notice. My small contributing message to this debate is that nudging plays an important role in aid politics. Substantially, there are parallel debates going on, and you might find some of the insights useful by means…

  • The UK’s general election: a fundamental change to UK/EU relations?

    … or EU legislation among themselves (as they have before), or, if necessary, to agree on amendments to the EU Treaties which only apply to the Eurozone states, or which otherwise give the UK an opt-out. In that case, there would be no transfer of powers from the UK to the EU, and so no need for a referendum. Simply put, an in/out referendum under…

  • Warum Juristen sich mit „Nudges” beschäftigen sollten

    … Emanuel Towfigh und Christian Traxler fragen in ihrem Beitrag, warum die Debatte um „nudges“ so spät im deutschen rechtswissenschaftlichen Diskurs angekommen ist. Sie identifizieren dafür mehrere Gründe, die zum einen in der Rechtskultur, zum anderen in der rechtswissenschaftlichen Ausbildung verankert sind. Ich stimme ihren Ausführungen im…

  • A Design Perspective on Nudging

    … Although design thinking has become a buzzword in business and although human-centered design approaches are being explored in a range of public innovation labs concerned with developing and delivering citizen-centric policies and public services, nudging is rarely discussed for its design implications. What would such a discussion contribute…

  • Pfadabhängigkeiten des Nudging, und wie sie überwunden werden können

    … In ihrem Kommentar zur Legitimität des Nudging geben Towfigh und Traxler einen wichtigen Denkanstoß und weisen zu Recht darauf hin, dass Nudging über eine Vielzahl an Facetten verfügt. Daraus ergibt sich, dass jeder Aspekt des Nudging im Einzelnen auf seine Legitimität hin überprüft werden muss. In Antwort auf Towfighs und Traxlers Kommentar…
