  • "This book offers a...perspective on the leading concept of harmonisation, advocating the mutual benefits and practical utility of harmonised law. Theoretical models and factors for harmonisation are explored in detail. [The author] acknowledges a range of additional factors and presents harmonisation as a widely applicable and useful theory. [This book also offers an] insight into the fundamental aspects of harmonisation, including the world of free trade, recognition of human rights and open socio-political systems. Two distinct models for the effective harmonisation of legal systems are explored: a general model and a specific model. The general model relates to minor formal changes introduced in the domestic sphere, while the specific model relates to significant and/or constitutional changes that would be necessitated in domestic law. These models allow for the effective implementation of harmonised legal norms in national spheres. The author examines comparative and socio-legal factors, identifies how the factors are modifiable and creates examples for the movement from theory to practice."--
