Abstract (German)

Die durch die EuGH-Entscheidungen Centros, Überseering und Inspire Art entstandene Möglichkeit regulatorischen Wettbewerbs zwischen verschiedenen europäischen Gesellschaftsrechtssystemen wird zum Anlass genommen, die möglichen Auswirkungen dieses Wettbewerbs aus Sicht der ökonomischen Theorie des Gesellschaftsrechts zu untersuchen. Dabei wird vor allem auf die amerikanische Diskussion zurückgegriffen, die diese Frage im Kontext des Rechts verschiedener US-Bundesstaaten seit mehreren Jahrezehnten untersucht (Stichwort "race to the bottom" vs. "race to the top"). Die Ergebnisse werden in Form mehrerer Aufsätze veröffentlicht.


Abstract (English)

The ECJ decisions in the cases Centros, Überseering und Inspire Art have initiated regulatory competition between the corporate law systems of EU and EEA Member States. This project investigates the potential effects of regulatory competition in Europe from the perspective of the economic theory of corporate law. In doing so, it draws heavily on the American literature, which discusses whether regulatory competition between the laws of different US states has led to a race to the bottom or to the top. The results of the project will be published in a series of articles.
