About this Publication:

This book, containing research on transnational impacts on law from a South African and German perspective, is the culmination of collaboration between the University of Augsburg and the University of Johannesburg over the past decade.

Topics of high current interest are introduced by South African scholars and responded to by their German counterparts, which leads to a deeper understanding of open legal questions in both legal systems.
