Epistémologie de la Traduction Juridique: la construction progressive des notions pénales

By on January 23, 2017

Tous les traducteurs juridiques, quelque soit leurs époque, en sont conscients : il n’est pas possible de traduire sans comparer.
Dans ce cadre, il faut identifier le sens de la notion objet de transposition dans le contexte du procès pénal, tout en explorant son polymorphisme sémantique jusqu’à son noyaux ontologique profond. Dans cette perspective, il a fallu adapter la méthodologie aux exigences de rationalité posées par la procédure pénale. Il s’agit de ce qu’on a appelé la «méthode de la construction progressive des notions» procédurales (BegriffaufbauMethode).

Beware the Trolldom: Speculative Interests and Policy Implications behind the Circulation of Damage Claims

By on January 12, 2017

Moving from the evaluations operated by Richard Posner in his judgment on the case Carhart v. Halaska, the paper seeks to analyse the so-called “litigation troll” phenomenon and the development of a damage claims market, i.e. a market in which the right to propose claims is voluntary exchangeable for money and can be asserted by private buyers. The aim of the study is to assess whether the implementation of such market might represent a resource for victims or if, on the contrary it might operate solely as a speculation tool for private investors. The analysis moves from the US…

Brexit Means Brexit, but What Does the Second Brexit Mean?

By , , , , , on December 1, 2016

Our analysis takes into consideration three different time blocks: we first consider how Britain came to Brexit, how the concept of Sovereignty has been challenged by participation in the European project and how Sovereignty and its implications have led to vote. The second part of the work concerns what will happen actually with the real exit, how the process will be managed from a legal point of view and how the concept of Sovereignty will be involved in this delicate transition. Finally, we analyse the stage after the official separation, taking into account the consequences on both the national…

L’elezione del Presidente degli Stati Uniti in un’America polarizzata

By on October 24, 2016

Le primarie presidenziali statunitensi del 2016 hanno segnato l’inizio di una fase del tutto inedita nella politica americana. I candidati dei due maggiori partiti, Hillary Rodham Clinton, per il Partito Democratico, e Donald J. Trump, per il Partito Repubblicano, rappresentano figure per certi versi innovative, ma allo stesso tempo estremamente divisive e polarizzanti, tanto a livello infra- quanto a livello intra-partitico. Il presente saggio offre una riflessione articolate su tali dinamiche.

The decision-making process of European constitutional courts. A comparative perspective

By on October 13, 2016

Mathilde Cohen, in her study on supreme and constitutional courts’ organizational cultures, hypothesised that there is a reciprocal influence between a court’s institutional design and the style of its opinions. I share her hypothesis. Thus, before exploring the practice of judicial dissent, I address its institutional and procedural contexts, since these exert a profound influence on this phenomenon. For this purpose the most relevant aspect of the decision-making process is represented by its personal dimension: the role of the judicial panel’s most prominent members (its president, the rapporteur judges and the opinion-writer) and that of law clerks.
