A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS DEDICATED TO PROFESSOR JOSIP KREGAR, A FRIEND OF CEU, PUBLISHED UNDER THE TITLE 'PRAVO I DRUŠTVO' [LAW AND SOCIETY]
The late Professor Josip Kregar was a legal scholar, a sociologist, an independent member of the Croatian parliament, the Dean of the Zagreb Law School, and a devoted friend of CEU. The more than a decade running 'Law and Economy' seminars co-organized by Zagreb Law School, the Inter-University Center in Dubrovnik, and the CEU Department of Legal Studies would not have been possible without his support.
Pravo i Društvo is a volume devoted to his work and achievements, comprised of reflections on and responses to his publications. It is edited by three former colleagues of his; two of them (Đorđe Gardašević and Viktor Gotovac) are Professors at the Law School of Zagreb University, Croatia, and alumni of our CEU Legal Studies Department, while the third (Siniša Zrinščak) is a professor of sociology at Zagreb Law School.
The volume includes writings by CEU alumni and faculty. Professor Gardašević's contribution focuses on a constitutional topic and is entitled 'On the People, Elections and Constitutional Subjects' (in English), while Professor Gotovac's concerns the future of labor law from a Croatian perspective (the Croatian title of the contribution is “Budućnost radnog prava: što se događa s radom (u Republici Hrvatskoj?”).
CEU alumna, Professor Violeta Beširević – now professor at the UNION Law School in Belgrade, Serbia – has contributed a paper entitled 'Militant Democracy and Populism: A Response to Tom Ginsburg and Aziz Huq' (in English) to the volume.
Professor Antonija Petričušić, alumna of the CEU Department of Sociology and a faculty member of Zagreb Law School has written a piece (in Croatian) entitled ‘The Financing of Ethnic Minorities’ Cultural Autonomy in Croatia and its Clientelist Disfunctions’ (“Financiranje kulturne autonomije nacionalih manjina u Hrvatskoj i njegove klijentelističke disfunkcije”).
As far as CEU faculty is concerned, Stefan Messmann (a retired faculty member of CEU LEGS International Business Law Program) has contributed a piece entitled 'The Chinese Way in Legislation - Legal Development in China under the Leadership of the CCP', which is the latest installation in a series of publications he has written devoted to Chinese law and society.
Lastly, inspired by the increase in attention devoted to ‘regulations’ and related challenges in the revised curriculum of CEU’s Global Business Law and Regulation Program, Professor Tibor Tajti's essay is dedicated to a group of interlinked topics and is entitled 'Regulatory- and other Forms of Capture in Law.'
