Out now: "Democracy and Financial Order: Legal Perspectives"

Goldmann, Matthias, Steininger, Silvia (Eds.)


The book discusses the relationship between democracy and the financial order from various legal perspectives. Each of the nine contributions adopts a unique perspective on the legal and political challenges brought before by the Global Financial Crisis.

Each chapter adresses the concept of law from a particular theoretical angle, be it a full-grown legal theory or an approach in political economy that has a particular view of the law.

Conrtibutions by: Matej Avbelj, Thomas Biebricher, Isabel Feichtner, Matthias Goldmann, Francisco Saffie G., Oisin Suttle, Emanuel V. Towfigh and Lars Viellechner.  E-book version available here.
