By Fiete Kalscheuer

In seiner Rechtslehre formuliert Kant das allgemeine Rechtsgesetz als obersten Grundsatz des Rechts. Es dient als ein überpositives Kriterium dafür, ob eine Handlung rechtmäßig oder unrechtmäßig ist. Nach dem allgemeinen Rechtsgesetz ist eine Handlung nur dann rechtmäßig, wenn sie die allgemeine Handlungsfreiheit des Einzelnen in größtmöglichem Maße achtet. Auch vermeintlich banale Handlungen stehen zumindest prima facie unter rechtlichem Schutz. Die kantische Rechtskonzeption entspricht damit der umstrittenen verfassungsgerichtlichen Interpretation des paintings.
2 Abs. 1 GG. Das "Reiten im Walde" oder das "Taubenfüttern" - zwei Fälle aus der Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts - sind mit anderen Worten auch bei Kant in rechtlicher Hinsicht geschützt. Eine Handlung, bzw. eine Maßnahme, die derart vermeintlich banale Handlungen verbietet, ist grundsätzlich rechtswidrig.
Die Frage lautet: Warum ist das so?
Das Bundesverfassungsgericht beantwortet diese Frage vorwiegend mit einem Verweis auf den historischen Willen des Parlamentarischen charges.
Das Werk gibt eine philosophisch fundierte Antwort auf die Frage, weshalb auch vermeintlich banale Handlungen rechtlich schützenswert sind. Kalscheuer behandelt damit eines der Hauptprobleme des Verhältnisses von Recht und ethical bei Kant.

Get Globalisierung des Wettbewerbsrechts: Eine internationale PDF

By Dietmar Baetge

Die Globalisierung der unternehmerischen Aktivitäten schreitet voran. Sie führt dazu, dass Wettbewerbspolitik und Kartellrecht immer weniger als die alleinige Angelegenheit nationaler Gesetzgeber verstanden werden können. Zwar wurden während des letzten Jahrzehnts eine Reihe von Publikationen der Internationalisierung der Wettbewerbsordnung gewidmet. Eine umfassende examine dieser Internationalisierungsansätze gibt es indes bis heute nicht.
Dietmar Baetge füllt insofern eine Lücke. Neuartig ist darüber hinaus auch die eingehende Untersuchung und Symbiose von völkerrechtlichen und wettbewerbsrechtlichen Regelungsmodellen, wie sie im nationalen, bilateralen, regionalen und weltweiten Maßstab existieren. Er behandelt die wettbewerbstheoretischen Grundlagen ebenso wie die handelspolitischen Bezüge, die mit der fortschreitenden Internationalisierung zusammenhängen. Die Suche nach möglichen Alternativen zu einer Globalisierung des Wettbewerbsrechts, insbesondere einseitige Maßnahmen der Regierungen, grenzüberschreitende Kooperationen der staatlichen Kartellbehörden und die Errichtung regionaler Wettbewerbsregime, werden genauer untersucht und kritisch gewürdigt. Dazu gehören auch die neueren Formen der wettbewerbspolitischen Zusammenarbeit im Rahmen internationaler Netzwerke. Letztlich erweist sich keiner dieser Regelungsansätze als ausreichend. Der Autor plädiert deshalb für die Schaffung einer globalen Wettbewerbsordnung, deren Umrisse er skizziert, indem er zunächst frühere Projekte vorstellt und dann die Konturen eines eigenen, innerhalb der Welthandelsorganisation zu verwirklichenden Modells präsentiert.
