  • Structural Principles and their Role in EU External Relations Law
    • Authors: Cremona M.
      Abstract: The nature of the Treaty provisions on EU external action, with a set of open-ended policy objectives and fewer policy-directed legal obligations on the Member States, has left much to the agenda-setting of the political institutions. The Court of Justice emphasises the need for the institutions to retain their discretion, their room for manoeuvre; it is non-interventionist, tending to take those choices at face value without seeking to define or shape them. Instead it has taken on another role: it ensures that the institutions act within their powers, and that the Member States do not obstruct the formation and implementation of Union policy. It is in fact engaged in establishing and protecting an institutional space within which policy may be formed, in which the different actors understand and work within their respective roles. The principles which have been drawn from the Treaties and elaborated by the Court to establish this institutional space are identified here as ‘structural principles’. They include the duty of sincere cooperation, the principles of conferral and institutional balance, mutual solidarity, subsidiarity, and the principle of autonomy. By identifying and developing these principles, which by their nature are flexible and capable of evolution, the Court of Justice exercises a formidable role in the governance of EU external action despite its hands-off approach to substantive policy choice. This paper seeks to explore further the nature of these structural principles as legal norms. It first offers an explanation for the importance of structural principles in the EU s external relations by exploring the nature of EU external relations powers. Second it begins an enquiry into the nature of structural principles: what does it mean to say that they are principles, that they are structural, and that they operate within external relations? Third, it offers a tentative typology of structural principles and some ideas on the ways in which they may complement and operate in tension with each other.

  • ‘Corruption by Organised Crime’—A Matter of
           Definition?
    • Authors: Campbell L.
      Abstract: The phenomenon of ‘corruption by organised crime’ is the subject of increased attention from policymakers in the UK. This focus is notable, given the limited political and academic consideration of the scope and meaning of this intersecting term. Both ‘organised crime’ and ‘corruption’ are difficult notions to pin down, definitionally and empirically, and such complexity is compounded by their conjunction. In this article, I problematize the dominant conceptualization of ‘corruption by organised crime’, and suggest that it is questionable in an abstract as well as operational sense. Given the ambiguity of the constituent concepts, as well as the implications for the development of criminal justice policy and law, I call for caution in its use. Instead I propose that we refer, and thus respond, to specific manifestations of corrupt practices for different criminal ends.

  • ‘Unjust Enrichment’—the Potion that Induces Well-meaning
           Sloppiness of Thought 1
    • Authors: Watts PG.
      Abstract: Making enrichment the focus of restitutionary liability is a fundamental error. It leads to an untenable prejudice against unearned gain. At the same time, it denies restitution to parties who should obtain it. Only limited interests have been, and ought to be, protected by the law of restitution. These include autonomy in the transfer of our property and in committing ourselves to binding obligations. Where the protections are triggered, restitution follows whether or not the defendant has been enriched. Expenditure of our time and effort is not (or is almost never) a protected interest, nor is our paying a third party to do things, even if others are enriched thereby. Such others need to have requested the expenditure or otherwise participated in a way that makes it just that they cover or contribute to the resulting costs—where such participation is present, enrichment is (almost always) superfluous. By buying into the concept of “unjust enrichment”, English courts since Banque Financière have overlooked and sometimes ignored paths of long-established precedent, and headed off into the wilderness. Bad claims have been recognised and good ones spurned. Even when the courts alight at the right place, we find judges not clearly or consistently identifying the enrichment that they say helped them get there, or we find them deeming an enrichment to have been present when they know it was not really there.

  • The Constitution and Foreign Affairs
    • Authors: Poole T.
      Abstract: This article examines a dimension of public law which, despite the increased frequency of litigation in this area, remains relatively under-explored: the constitution and foreign affairs. To aid this task, two models are elaborated. The first, the unilateralist or sovereigntist model, assumes a sharp separation between the internal and the external as domains of peace (constitution), and war (reason of state) respectively. The second model assumes that juridical boundaries are contested and permeable, reading the dynamics of constitutional development in terms of a process of mutual recognition. While the former may have had more historical traction, I argue that the latter now provides the better guide, both analytically and normatively. The theoretical argument is developed in relation to the lived tradition of the British constitution. The article closes with a series of propositions that seek to capture the emerging principles within this complex and fast-moving area of law.

  • ‘Things’ are not What they Seem: On Persons, Things, Slaves, and the
           New Abolitionist Movement
    • Authors: O’Connell Davidson J.
      Abstract: In a world where chattel slavery is outlawed everywhere, so that nobody, anywhere, is legally ascribed the status of ‘slave’, what do campaigners and politicians mean by the term ‘modern slavery’? This article explores ‘new abolitionist’ efforts to define ‘slavery’, observing that it follows a tradition of liberal thought in which the singular wrong of slavery is held to be that it converts persons into things, an assumption that has also informed one strand of the historical literature on slavery in the Atlantic World. It then considers another strand of slavery scholarship, as well as some historical evidence, that alerts us to serious flaws in accounts that frame slavery through reference to the conceptual opposition of persons and things. In reality, Atlantic World slaves had a ‘bifurcated existence’ as both ‘things’ and ‘persons’, as Saidiya Hartman puts it. The article asks what closer attention to the history of the slave's double character might teach us about serious and heavy restraints on freedom in the contemporary world.

  • Secondary Economic Sanctions
    • Authors: Fabre C.
      Abstract: Many states, or rather their leaders and officials, routinely violate the fundamental human rights of both their compatriots or outsiders. Faced with this depressing catalogue of abuses, the international community'™s response of choice consists in imposing economic sanctions on wrongdoers. The relatively scant philosophical literature on the topic tackles primary sanctions - where the sanctioning party (Sender) restricts economic relationships between, on the one hand, the sanctioned party (Target) and, on the other hand, agents of any nationality who are located on its own territory, or its own nationals wherever they are located – in other words, agents who are subject to its territorial and/or personal jurisdiction. In this paper however I focus on unilateral secondary sanctions, whereby Sender seeks to restrict the economic activities of agents who are not subject to its territorial and/or personal jurisdiction, on the grounds that they trade with or invest in Target. I provide a cosmopolitan defence of those sanctions as a means to stop ongoing grievous human rights violations. I proceed as follows. First, I outline the central tenets of cosmopolitan morality which I take for granted throughout this paper. I then mount my cosmopolitan defence of unilateral secondary sanctions. I end by rejecting the view that multilateral authorisation is a necessary condition for sanctions in general and secondary sanctions in particular, though I consider cases where such authorisation is warranted.

  • The Myth of the Remedial Constructive Trust
    • Authors: Webb C.
      Abstract: Remedial constructive trusts are held out as a way for the courts to make better decisions: freed from the strictures of rules, courts would be better positioned to do justice on the facts, tailoring a remedy to the circumstances of the case. If this were true, their rejection in English law would be a serious failing. But a closer look at the relationship between rules and discretion suggests that it’s not true and that, when discretion is in genuine opposition to rule-determined decision-making, the outcome is not more justice but less. Moreover, when we look to the arguments of those calling for remedial constructive trusts to be introduced into English law and to those jurisdictions that claim to recognize them, this much seems to be agreed. Such differences as there are go instead to the substantive rules that govern the operation of constructive trusts. So the question English law faces is not whether we should recognize some ‘new model’ of constructive trust, but rather the more familiar inquiry into what rules are best. In addressing this question, the idea of the ‘remedial’ constructive trust is only an unnecessary distraction.

  • The Inferred Trust: an Unhappy Marriage of Contract and Trust?
    • Authors: Bryan M.
      Abstract: Many trusts are created by contract. In some cases an express term of the contract creates the trust. In other cases the existence of the trust is inferred from the contract's terms. The paper argues that there is a conflict between trust law's methodology for determining whether a trust has been declared and contract law's methodology for interpreting the terms of a contract. As a consequence, there is a disturbing trend for trusts to be inferred from the terms of commercial contracts without proper consideration being given to whether they have been properly declared.

  • Common Law and Statute in the Law of Employment
    • Authors: Bogg A.
      Abstract: Remarkably, the interaction between common law and statute has not attracted the scholarly attention it deserves, given that it is such a basic component of legal reasoning in common law systems. This is especially true in the law of employment, where the interaction between common law and statute is a pervasive feature of modern employment law. In recent years, scholars have started to rise to the challenge of developing principles to regulate this interaction, and this article provides a contribution to those debates. It builds upon Lord Hoffmann’s controversial judgment in Johnson v Unisys to identify three modes of interaction: statute as pre-emptive of common law development; statute as an analogical stimulus of common law development; and common law fundamental rights. By connecting this analysis to background principles of legislative supremacy and fundamental rights, it argues that Johnson v Unisys provides an attractive constitutional vision of the relationship between Parliament and the courts.

  • Don’t Call People ‘Rapists’: on the Social Contribution
           Injustice of Punishment
    • Authors: Brownlee K.
      Abstract: We wrong a person as a social being when we deny him minimally adequate opportunities to contribute socially to other people’s survival and wellbeing. We can call this kind of wrong social contribution injustice. In the morally fraught domain of criminal justice, we perpetrate this injustice in many ways, including in our tendency to see people who have committed offences as social threats. One way that we exhibit this tendency in our use of classificatory terms such as ‘murderer’ and ‘rapist’ that essentialize people’s wrongdoing. We also engage in more concrete, material forms of social contribution injustice when we give people criminal records they can never spend, impose punishments that sever their social bonds, and deny them support when they are trying to reintegrate after punishment. We also do social contribution injustice to the family and friends of many of the people we punish. Much of this injustice is contingent on our practices, policies, and general attitudes towards offending.

  • Mental Health, Law, and Creating Inclusive Workplaces
    • Authors: Bell M.
      Abstract: A growing body of research has drawn attention to the high levels of disadvantage encountered by people with mental health problems in the labour market. This takes a variety of forms, including higher rates of unemployment and sickness absence, as well as individual experiences of discrimination often linked to the stigmatization of mental illness. This article explores the role that law can play in creating inclusive workplaces. It reflects on the values that should guide legal intervention, taking its inspiration from the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the principles found in capabilities theory. Drawing upon both, the article contends that law can be galvanized to make a more effective contribution, in particular through greater emphasis on the role for positive action and the rights of persons with disabilities to individual and collective participation.
