  • Legalizing the ASEAN Way: Adapting and Reimagining the ASEAN Investment
           Regime
    • Authors: Cho S; Kurtz J.
      Pages: 233 - 266
      Abstract: This Article explores the legalization characteristics of the investment rules of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). Measured against orthodox and external benchmarks, ASEAN’s investment regime is relatively limited. We make the following two arguments in this Article. First, we argue that while ASEAN members have subscribed to global norms in their own collective investment rules, they have done so in an intentionally selective manner shaped fundamentally by key contextual dynamics. These encompass a complex combination of ASEAN members’ unique deliberation modality (the “ASEAN Way”) informed by their shared historical experience coupled with negative social learning. Using those insights, we suggest that is both possible and desirable to understand the ASEAN approach as an independent and legitimate form of legalization, rather than as a failed or flawed model. Second, and relatedly, we argue that the idiographic nature of legalization in ASEAN compels us to rethink the conventional universal (nomothetic) approach to legalization and embrace a more nuanced conception.

  • Same Sex but Not the Same: Same-Sex Marriage in the United States and
           France and the Universalist Narrative
    • Authors: Isailovic I.
      Pages: 267 - 315
      Abstract: Jurisdictions around the world are increasingly adopting, or considering the adoption of, legislation to legalize same-sex marriage. The dominant approach in analyzing these reforms has been universalist. According to this view, same-sex marriage represents a legal trend at the global level and will eventually become a global norm. This description lumps together different family law reforms and depicts them as contributing to a broader convergionist global dynamic. This Article argues that universalism has theoretical and practical shortcomings, since it tends to downplay the diversity of processes of legal change by isolating law from local cultural and political dynamics, and, in so doing, obscures arguments and social dynamics that perpetuate the marginalization of gays and lesbians and their families. Using the pluralist socio-legal framework that sees law as a cultural and political artifact, this Article compares two such legal reforms, one in the United States and one in France. It argues that four aspects distinguish these two reforms: First, the different roles played by rights and equality-based arguments, the divergent understandings of law in relation to gay and lesbian historical marginalization and social change, the focus of the debates (on the definition of marriage in the United States and on filiation in France), and finally, the type of expertise underpinning the legal arguments. Pointing to these differences allows us to better appreciate the political, legal, and cultural processes that drive legal change and the obstacles to achieving equality for gays, lesbians, and their families.

  • Confidence and Control in Parliamentary Government: Parliamentary
           Questioning, Executive Knowledge, and the Transformation of Democratic
           Accountability
    • Authors: Meinel F.
      Pages: 317 - 367
      Abstract: This Article seeks to improve our understanding of the institutional conditions of parliamentary control. The effectiveness of control is a key concern of contemporary democratic politics. The challenges legislatures are facing are similar in different political systems: most involve oversight of executive decision making at the international and supranational level and the control of domestic and international security policies. Constitutional scholarship often responds to alleged deficiencies of parliamentary control by claiming a general principle of transparency, including broad powers of the legislature to request information from the executive. This Article argues that the political strength of legislative control depends less upon some overarching normative principle but on the institutional and procedural framework in which it operates. In particular, the constitutional separation of three independent branches of government yields an utterly different notion of control compared to parliamentary systems. Parliamentary constitutions understand control not only as a check upon the executive branch, but also as an instrument which secures the steady confrontation of the government with both majority and minority in the parliament. Effectiveness and scope of parliamentary control are, hence, defined by the institutional idea of the cabinet. A comparative analysis of American, French, German, and EU parliamentary law shows that procedural rules mirror to a large extent the respective constitutional relationship between the legislature and the executive. The Article argues that parliamentary control can only be strengthened by a reinforcement of the peculiar institutional features a constitution provides for this purpose. Insofar as a constitution follows the parliamentary type, this implies a reinforcement of the personal character of legislative control.

  • Rabbis Drafting Criminal Legislation: The Shaping of the Prohibition
           Against Bigamy for Jews in Mandatory Palestine
    • Authors: Radzyner A.
      Pages: 369 - 410
      Abstract: To a large extent, the roots of Israeli family law go back to the British Mandate for Palestine. British policy was to enshrine in legislation the jurisdiction of religious courts, so that marriage and divorce would be conducted according to religious law only. At the same time, the British believed that a criminal prohibition should be imposed against bigamy. The Article describes the conflict between Jewish marriage law and criminal law on this matter. The reason for the conflict lies in the complexity of the Jewish bigamy law, which is not uniform for all Jews. A comprehensive archival review shows that it was one specific criminal case that alerted the British mandatory authorities to the fact that they had created a problem in the area of criminal law, at least as far as bigamy offenses of Jewish men were concerned. Because of the complexity of the matter, the task of repairing the relevant section in the criminal code was assigned to the Chief Rabbis of Palestine. On their part, the Chief Rabbis used the opportunity that was offered them to impose on all Jews in Palestine the halakhic approach that rejects bigamy. Naturally, this move involved the Rabbinate and the British in a serious conflict with the various groups of the Jewish population that opposed the amendment of the law. But the amendment created by the Rabbis succeeded, and Israeli criminal law to this day is based on it. This is an exceptional case of a criminal law that distinguishes clearly between Jewish and non-Jewish populations in Israel.

  • The Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh: A New Paradigm for
           Limiting Buyers’ Liability in Global Supply Chains'
    • Authors: Salminen J.
      Pages: 411 - 451
      Abstract: The Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh (the Accord) is generally seen as a positive development in ensuring that Bangladeshi garment industry workers have access to safe working conditions. A central structural difference between the Accord and earlier corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives is that the Accord takes the form of an enforceable contract that directly connects first-world buyers with representatives of the third-world laborers of their supply chains. Traditionally, CSR mechanisms tread a fine line between a promise of decent labor conditions, often targeted at first-world consumers, and the nonbinding nature of such mechanisms, at least from the perspective of third-world laborers. The chief competitor of the Accord, the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (the Alliance), follows the traditional model. Thus the Accord represents a break from earlier nonbinding and worker-exclusive CSR by providing a new paradigm stressing enforceability and inclusivity.The novel structural aspects of the Accord are viewed positively by scholarship, interest groups, and general reporting. My starting point is this distinction between the positive, empowering image attributed to the enforceable agreement in the case of the Accord and the negative, hollow-words image of compliance mechanisms that do not take the form of an enforceable agreement, such as the Alliance. I argue that the possibilities for controlling liability allowed by an enforceable governance agreement can outweigh the possibilities for controlling liability allowed by reliance on strict conceptions of privity. From this perspective, the Accord can be critiqued as the herald of a new CSR paradigm that allows buyers new methods for controlling liability over their global supply chains. Additionally, the new paradigm comes with a whitewashing effect towards consumers and regulators. I argue that even more pronounced, however, can be its whitewashing effect towards adjudicators. Courts and arbitral tribunals may be prone to value the sanctity of the four-corners private ordering of transnational contracts, such as the Accord, over locally embedded legal safeguards.

  • Guidebook to a Foreign Land
    • Authors: Seppänen S.
      Pages: 474 - 479
      Abstract: Comparative law, a critic might point out, is a foreign country. A kind of “land that time forgot,” comparative law belongs to a more innocent time before cheap air travel and foreign legal qualifications demystified transnational legal practice for many lawyers.11 Those inhabiting this isolated kingdom are oddly monocultural, and their earnest fascination with the foreign seems as outdated as their fixation with “comparison,” a method that was last modish in the nineteenth century.22 Professor Günter Frankenberg’s important new book, Comparative Law as Critique,33 is a critical guidebook to this charming but parochial land. Written by a long-time observer of comparative law, the book maps mainstream discourses in comparative legal scholarship, subjecting them to the same Orientalizing gaze that comparative law has traditionally cast on non-Western legal systems. The book also provides a thought-provoking meta-discussion on critical scholarship,44 a topical section on Muslim veiling,55 and essays on human rights and access to justice.66
