  • Merging Comparative Law and Legal History: Towards an Integrated
           Discipline
    • Authors: Pihlajamäki H.
      Pages: 733 - 750
      Abstract: This Article argues that legal history and comparative law ought to merge into one discipline. The two disciplines are both products of the same period, the late nineteenth century, when they were formed as the fruit of the rising positivist legal scholarship. They are, to be sure, opposite sides of the coin. Mainstream legal history was, from early on, a humble servant of positivism, whereas comparative law formed as an antithesis to it. Nevertheless, neither of the twin disciplines would exist as such were it not for the emergence of national legal positivism on both sides of the Atlantic. National legal histories developed as the dominant paradigm of the nineteenth century and for the most part of the twentieth. Legal historians provided an important slice of the nationalistic narrative, explaining how history had led national states to the particular situations in law they found themselves in. Comparative law started early in the nineteenth century as a response to practical legislative needs, as “comparative legislation.” Some of the internationally minded German scholars also reacted against the national emphasis of Savigny’s Historical School. Comparative legal scholarship acquired more academic overtones as the century wore on, and many scholars optimistically expected that comparative scholarship would unify and civilize the world’s legal orders. After World War II, mainstream comparative law had little hope left in its possibilities of civilizing the world. The discipline declined into a “country and western” style of scholarship. The largest obstacle in the way of merging the twin disciplines is the fact that they, as all scholarly disciplines, are also social communities. Most scholars still like to identify themselves as “comparatists” or “legal historians.” The new combined discipline would do away with outdated ways of doing scholarship in both mother disciplines. It would marginalize the kind of legal history that seems unconscious of the world outside national boundaries and of international contexts, and it would supplant the kind of comparative law that is made without reference to the historical paths that have led to the present situation.

  • Global Legal History, Legal Systemology, and the Genealogy of Law
    • Authors: Somma A.
      Pages: 751 - 768
      Abstract: Comparatists in the social sciences are supposed to analyze social phenomena from a static point of view, with no interest in their dynamic aspects. However, this is not true for comparative lawyers, since they are committed to analyzing legal change, which necessarily enhances aspects like the circulation of legal models as well as their transformation due to the variation of the space-time coordinates.The dynamic aspects are of such importance for comparatists that the building of legal families, reflecting a static approach to comparative law, is increasingly questioned in its foundations and capability to detect decisive similarities and differences between legal systems: the evolution within the common law–civil law divide and its connection with the ruling of the economic order.The building of legal families will not be removed from the comparative lawyer agenda, at least in recognition of its didactic function. However, comparative lawyers are increasingly aware of the ideological value of taxonomies and increasingly convinced about the necessity to replace them with genealogies.

  • East, East, and West: Comparative Law and the Historical Processes of
           Legal Interaction in China and Japan
    • Authors: Matsubara K.
      Pages: 769 - 789
      Abstract: As Western notions of law formed the basis of a globally shared common legal language, the language of comparative law has become inevitably Western. In studying historical societies that did not share this language, analyses using this language will always risk anachronisms due to the inherent assumptions, be they the meanings given to particular terms, or the manner in which different areas of law are categorized and distinguished from each other. One way to avoid such anachronisms would be to attempt the formulation of a different concept of law that is neutral to Western and non-Western legal traditions. This, however, would move the analysis away from discussions in other areas of legal studies conducted in the aforementioned common legal language, which in turn would limit the significance comparative law might have for these discussions. In looking at the historical processes of legal modernization in China and Japan, this Article discusses how one might manage the risk of anachronism in writing a legal history of non-Western societies, while also retaining a link with a wider range of legal studies.After Part I considers some of the theoretical problems of studying Chinese and Japanese society as a project in comparative law, Part II will look at the debates on legal reform in China and Japan in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. While these debates included serious discussions on incorporating traditional aspects of Chinese or Japanese society in the newly formed Western-style legal system, the discussions themselves were conducted in an essentially Westernized language, which identified the traditions of Japanese and Chinese as “customs,” a legal notion newly introduced in the course of modernization. While looking at certain traditional practices and institutions as “custom” might have been an anachronism, the extent and significance of this anachronism can be assessed through a study of the process of interaction whereby this viewpoint came to be adopted. Part III of this Article suggests an approach to studying the traditional Chinese property regime, also starting from a study of the historical process of interaction between Western colonial law and local society in China. Using an analysis of this interaction as a starting point, it discusses how relevant aspects of Chinese society and their interconnections might be identified, opening up possibilities for comparisons not limited to East–West comparisons, and it also contributes to a more general legal discussion on family, property, and state formation.

  • Due Process and Civil Procedure, or How to Do Codes with Theories
    • Authors: Petit C.
      Pages: 791 - 810
      Abstract: Franco Cipriani’s historical research on the great authors of “scientific proceduralism” (Giuseppe Chiovenda, Francesco Carnelutti, and Piero Calamandrei) made it possible to elaborate a theory of the civil process: “guaranteeism.” The theory holds that the lawsuit is a legal relationship between private parties, and the judicial authority only acts in the trial as an impartial bystander. This is opposite the procedural tradition of the twentieth century that accentuates the legal–public nature of the process and therefore the autonomy and activity of the judge to come to a fair resolution.The wide acceptance of the Italian classic authors on civil procedure in Spain and Latin America explains the impact that Cipriani’s “revisionist” work had in several countries and the tension between guaranteeism and activism in their codified regulation of the trial. From that point of view, this Article analyzes the most recent codes of civil procedure, those of Colombia and Brazil. If historiography has led to theory, it is interesting to find out whether theory leads finally to legislation.

  • The Synesthesia of Values: How the Ideals of Modernist Design Predisposed
           and Shaped Fascist Legal and Political Thought
    • Authors: Damler D.
      Pages: 811 - 830
      Abstract: In this Article, I will argue that aesthetic, epistemic, and moral (legal, political) values are correlated because of a common underlying mechanism. Value judgments are regulated via chronologically antecedent emotions. Their attribution to a certain normative category is an analytical achievement that only occurs in a second step. “Analogical” interferences are inevitable due to the processes involved being partly identical. Jurisprudence, too, continually operates with terms that have an underlying sensuous, aesthetic component and depend on concrete experiential knowledge. This lifeworld horizon and the attendant aesthetic preferences differ from society to society, sometimes considerably from state to state, despite otherwise very similar economic and social conditions.Using the example of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s, I will demonstrate how popular stylistic elements of the New Objectivity—the ideal of “visibility” and a technoid, spare, and simple design—inspired the critics of Western democracy, liberalism, and parliamentarianism. From the moralizing and dogmatically rigid perspective of German-style functionalism, violating the imperative of purposefulness is not only an aesthetic faux pas, but also an inexcusable moral failure. Carl Schmitt’s critique of parliamentarianism, with its focus on the supposedly functionless and empty ritual of the parliamentary speech, was just a variation and echo of this moral-aesthetic leitmotif.

  • The Dark Side of Counter-Terrorism: Arcana Imperii and Salus Rei Publicae
    • Authors: Vedaschi A.
      Pages: 877 - 926
      Abstract: This Article examines the use of state secrecy by the advanced democracies during the post-9/11 era. The current trend consists of reliance on intelligence information to take measures that can seriously impair the fundamental rights of individuals, repeated claims of state secrecy before courts, and, in general, an evident drift towards ever greater security at the expense of personal freedoms and human rights. To what extent is this attitude consistent with democracy, and its related principles, such as transparency, political accountability, and proper judicial review' An adequate answer to this question requires an evaluation of the performance of institutional mechanisms of Western democracies aimed at scrutinizing the use of secrecy in order to avoid the considerable and disquieting risk of abuses, which can lead to the abridgment of human rights. These thorny issues are addressed by analyzing the approach of domestic and regional (namely the European Court of Human Rights) courts in some paradigmatic cases of extraordinary rendition, such as the El-Masri and Abu Omar cases. Extraordinary renditions are a paramount example of a controversial counter-terrorism practice, marked by a strong shift towards secrecy and at serious risk of resulting in a substantial denial of justice and perpetual concealment of wrongdoings by or on behalf of governments. The outcome of these cases illustrates the ineffectiveness of existing mechanisms aimed at overseeing secrecy and, therefore, suggests that the claim of secrecy should be reviewed carefully by domestic courts in order to fully vindicate human rights and uphold the rule of law.

  • Multiculturalism as Covering: On the Accommodation of Minority Religions
           in Israel
    • Authors: Karayanni M.
      Pages: 831 - 875
      Abstract: “Covering” is a descriptive theory concerning the existence of the gap between how a social-legal order is presented and how that social-legal order operates, in practice. In spite of the fact that the reality of the social-legal order can be repressive, it can nonetheless survive and persist if a cover in the form of a positive agenda is thrown over it. Thus far, covering has been associated with the agenda of assimilation—in the name of which the accommodation of a different identity is denied. In this Article, I argue that covering is also discernible when multiculturalism and its explicit agenda for the accommodation of minority groups, namely, assimilation’s antithesis, is the overall guiding norm. When the reality is that of a nation-state where one’s group identity can determine the kind of norms by which members are governed, presenting this reality as multicultural covers for repressive group norms over individual group members and helps avoid the construction of a shared identity that can threaten the structure of the nation-state. I will seek to demonstrate this type of covering by focusing on the accommodation of Palestinian-Arab religious minorities in Israel.
