Social, Economic and Legal Consequences of Uber and Similar Transportation Network Companies (TNCs)

15-10-2015

Commercial success and massive uptake of services provided by companies such as Uber trigger a number of questions for regulators both in the United States and in the European Union. The main question is if such web based applications or platforms merit their success solely to innovation or if their success is due to exploitation of loopholes in regulatory requirements.

Commercial success and massive uptake of services provided by companies such as Uber trigger a number of questions for regulators both in the United States and in the European Union. The main question is if such web based applications or platforms merit their success solely to innovation or if their success is due to exploitation of loopholes in regulatory requirements. Citizens and consumer organisations question if regulatory responses to these innovative services are dictated by genuine concerns over proper regulation of transportation services and consumer safety or constitute a protection of traditional incumbent transport operators.

Civil Judicial Experts in Cross-Border Litigation: Towards the ‘European Judicial Expert’

15-05-2015

Upon request by the JURI Committee, this in-depth analysis examines the rules applicable to judicial experts in the Czech Republic as well as the possibilities of establishing a list of European experts in the EU. Judicial expertise in cross-border litigation in the Czech Republic may be performed only by experts registered in a special national public directory. The existing European legal standards do not provide any satisfactory solution for cooperation between the courts and an expert from another ...

Upon request by the JURI Committee, this in-depth analysis examines the rules applicable to judicial experts in the Czech Republic as well as the possibilities of establishing a list of European experts in the EU. Judicial expertise in cross-border litigation in the Czech Republic may be performed only by experts registered in a special national public directory. The existing European legal standards do not provide any satisfactory solution for cooperation between the courts and an expert from another Member State. The solution lies in unification of the basic standards for selection of an expert as well as the processing of the expert opinion. It will then be possible to establish a single list of European experts, which would be based on the harmonised national lists.

The Situation of the Media Sector in Croatia

19-02-2010

In the twenty years since independence the development of free media in Croatia, alongside the birth of democracy and introduction of the market economy, has been a huge challenge. During the 1990s state censorship of the media continued to prevail. Since then the state of media freedoms has improved, but serious problems remain. This paper reviews the present state of affairs in the following four areas: (i) legal framework of the media, (ii) their ownership and financial situation, (iii) the freedom ...

In the twenty years since independence the development of free media in Croatia, alongside the birth of democracy and introduction of the market economy, has been a huge challenge. During the 1990s state censorship of the media continued to prevail. Since then the state of media freedoms has improved, but serious problems remain. This paper reviews the present state of affairs in the following four areas: (i) legal framework of the media, (ii) their ownership and financial situation, (iii) the freedom of the media and (iv) the role of the media in the fight against organized crime and corruption. While further amendments of media legislation are required to meet EU standards, the media are already showing themselves to be potent forces in the struggle against the wider problem of state corruption and its defective judiciary. The EU accession process is a unique opportunity to achieve decisive progress in these respects.
