Climate and Covid-19: Will the shipping industry succeed in charting the right course between Scylla and Charybdis?
AUGUST J BRAAKMAN
Non-compliance by EU Member States and/or enterprises with their GHG emission reduction obligations as a result of the Covid-19 crisis may well have serious effects on fair and undistorted competition, particularly in the sector of containerised liner shipping services. Guus Braakman examines the possible legal and financial implications.
State aid after Brexit: the case of future British free ports
Professor at the Catholic University of Paris Adjunct Professor, University Notre Dame Australia, Of Counsel, Stream Law Firm
The creation of several ‘free ports’ in the United Kingdom (UK) was confirmed in February 2020 and so far the Brexit negotiations have not addressed whether competition rules apply in the UK, in particular state aid rules. Will there be a competitive advantage in free ports with free access to EU ports?
CALL FOR PAPERS:
The Contaminated Blood Scandal
In the 1970s and 1980s, thousands of people with haemophilia were infected with Hepatitis C and the HIV virus after receiving contaminated blood products through the NHS. Patients were given products that had been imported from the United States, where paid donors included individuals from high-risk groups. A public inquiry into the contaminated blood scandal commenced in April 2019, and is expected to hear evidence from affected patients, families, healthcare professionals and other experts.
The Editors of Contemporary Issues in Law invite submissions that explore the topic of the contaminated blood inquiry. These can draw on any related legal or ethical aspect (for example, criminal negligence, compensation, liability).
Papers should be 8,000-10,000 words (including footnotes)
Submission deadline: Ongoing
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
