The rationale of the volume is that the venerable discipline of comparative law is presently characterized by an important new dynamic that is taking it in a new direction. Law scholars from across northern Europe, along with Italy and France, explore comparative law from the perspectives of legal aid and development, constitutional law, and private and economic law. Among their topics are legal cartography, whether human rights can be exported, ontological and epistemological complexity, comparative aspects of fundamental rights in Germany and in Ukraine as a case study of Central and Eastern Europe, reflections on comparative law method in light of Principles of European Tort Law, a European comparison of legal services in conveyancing, and the forces behind and the challenges ahead in the age of transnational harmonization. The 16 papers are from a May 2007 conference in Orebro, Sweden.
