Zu den Arten von Kollisionsnormen in der Lehre von der Statutenkollision

Research output: Journal contributionsScientific review articlesResearch


It is commonly accepted in the history of Conflict of Laws that there has been a "Copernican turning point"when Savigny introduced multilateral conflict rules and thereby abandoned the system of unilateral conflict rules of the Theory of statuta. The article challenges this narrative and argues on the one hand that the statutists already used multilateral conflict rules and on the other that their unilateral rules often reached similar results to modern multilateral conflict rules because of their universal nature.
