Restitution und Bereicherungsausgleich in Europa

English summary: In this work, the author deals with restitutionary remedies and compensation for unjustified enrichment in cases of improvements made on someone else's property, wrongful acts and in situations where more than two persons are involved and the enrichment of the defendant could be regarded as indirect. Analyzing these subjects from the standpoint of comparative law, the author minimizes the significance of national concepts of law, dogmatic structures and technical instruments and in their place focuses on the values on which the results and the solutions found in the legal systems examined are based. German description: Peter Schlechtriem behandelt rechtsvergleichend die im deutschen Recht als Falle der Bereicherung 'in sonstiger Weise' umschriebenen Bereicherungssituationen, d. h. Verwendungen auf fremdes Gut, Bereicherung durch Eingriff und Ausgleichsverhaltnisse bei Beteiligung von drei und mehr Personen. Fur den Ausgleich bei Verwendungen auf fremdes Gut schlagt er als Ergebnis der rechtsvergleichenden Analysen eine bereicherungsrechtliche Losung vor, bei der der Ausgleich einerseits durch die Verwendungen des Glaubigers, andererseits durch die erstattungsfahige Bereicherung des Schuldners begrenzt ist. Fur Bereicherungen durch Eingriff verdeutlicht er, wo fur diesen Bereicherungsanspruch in Abgrenzung zu Schadensersatzanspruchen aus Delikt oder Vertragsbruch einerseits und Anspruchen wegen Geschaftsanmassung andererseits ein genuines Anwendungsfeld verbleibt. Fur die Situationen, in denen ein Ausgleich zwischen mehr als zwei Personen in Frage kommt, unterscheidet er zwischen Fallen der Weiterleitung einer erlangten Bereicherung, in denen nur ausnahmsweise - insbesondere bei unentgeltlichem Erwerb - Durchgriff auf einen Dritten gewahrt wird. Auch die Sonderprobleme, die durch die Einschaltung der Banken beim bargeldlosen Zahlungsverkehr entstehen, werden berucksichtigt. Mit der Zahlung fremder Schuld spricht der Autor einen weiteren Problembereich an, wobei er zwischen bewusster Zahlung auf fremde Schuld und irrtumlicher Annahme einer eigenen Schuld des Leistenden (sog. 'subjektive Nichtschuld' im romanischen Rechtskreis) unterscheidet. Durch diese rechtsvergleichende Analyse relativiert Peter Schlechtriem die Bedeutung nationaler Rechtsbegriffe, dogmatischer Strukturen und technischer Instrumente und verdeutlicht statt dessen die Wertungen, die den Ergebnissen und Losungen in den untersuchten Rechtsordnungen zugrunde liegen. Er stellt damit Material fur eine europaische Angleichung oder Vereinheitlichung des Obligationenrechts im Bereich des Ausgleichs von Bereicherungen zur Verfugung.Band 2 schliesst an den im Dezember 2000 erschienenen Band 1 an.

Restitution: A new perspective provides a detailed critique of current and widely accepted theories seeking to unify the law of restitution on the basis of a principle of unjust enrichment. Commencing with a brief history of restitution, the book proceeds to illustrate the diverse legal problems addressed by the law of restitution. The legal doctrines now collected under this heading are demonstrated to have fulfilled a gap-filling role in our law, much like the diverse doctrines of equity have done. The book questions the underlying basis for unjust enrichment theories and demonstrates their inadequacy as descriptions and explanations of restitution. The book then sets out alternative methods of organising and rationalising the topics of restitution. The approach adopted rejects an explanation of liability in restitution on the basis of a defendant's unjust enrichment and thus challenges much of the current academic and judicial writing the in the field. Instead, the approach adopted is to emphasise the relevance of a defendant's conduct in determining the nature and extent of any liability imposed.

Principles of the Law of Restitution

This new textbook outlines the general principles of the rapidly developing subject of the Law of Restitution. Restitution is concerned with the reversing of unjust enrichment and was recently recognized as a discrete body of law by the House of Lords although restitutionary principles have in fact been evolving for over 200 years. Rather than taking the traditional approach which assumes that restitutionary remedies will be awarded against a defendant only where it can be shown that the defendant has been unjustly enriched at the expense of the plaintiff.The book asserts that the law of restitution is simply concerned with the question of when restitutionary remedies may be awarded, that is remedies which are assessed by reference to a benefit obtained by the defendant. But in determining whether restitutionary remedies are available it is necessary to identify the causes of the action which triggers them. There are three such causes of action, namely the reversal ofthe defendants unjust enrichment, the commission of a wrong by the defendant, and the vindication of the defendants property rights. The state of the law is examined through analyses of the statutory provisions and key cases demonstrating the way the law is used to resolve a wide variety of legal problems. The very different views of academics as to the nature and ambit of the subject are also identified. This book will be invaluable to students on restitution courses at every level.

Looking at the tasks before the law of restitution as the next century approaches, this book is about eliminating misleading classifications and establishing better ones. It is the view of the author that the law will remain confused if it does not denounce most of the divisions which it inherited, through the forms of action, from Fulbecks time and beyond.

In the course of the Second World War, the National Socialist persecution of the Jews in the German Reich and throughout the occupation period, art was stolen to a great extent. In this book, the author systematically describes – in historical as well as juridical terms – the extremely complex subject matter of art theft in the Second World War (so-called “looted art”), in marked contrast to persecution-related dispossession of cultural assents from mostly Jewish provenience. In these frequently sensitive matters concerning the restitution of war-related, expropriated and/or persecution-related, removed cultural assets, questions arising from the realm of (international) private law, the intertemporal law of restitution and indemnification as well as international law are to be answered first and foremost.

February 1945. Europe is in ruins and the Red Army is searing its way across Germany’s eastern marches, revenging itself upon a petrified population. The war is over, but for some the fight for survival is only just beginning. Alix, the aristocratic daughter of a German resistance fighter, is alone and desperate to flee before the Reds come. But when a ferocious snowstorm descends she must return to the shelter of her abandoned ancestral home. There, she is shocked to find her childhood sweetheart Gregor. As old passions are rekindled, a couple break into the house to hide – the man, dressed in Gestapo uniform, is a stranger, but his companion is altogether more familiar. By morning, the blizzard has died down but the Reds are back. The woman and her Nazi escort are dead, and Gregor has vanished. Alone and terrified, Alix runs for her life, and embarks upon an extraordinary and heartbreaking journey. It will take sixty years and the fall of another empire – Communism – before the riddles of that fateful night can be deciphered. Restitution is a memorable novel about love and betrayal, hatred and heroism – a reminder that, even in the worst of times, the most courageous acts of kindness are possible.

Dagan's 2004 book provides a dynamic account of the American law of restitution. The book reviews the existing doctrine, using an ethical perspective to expose and examine critically the normative underpinnings of the core categories of restitution. Dagan also discusses some of the most controversial issues in the area, such as cohabitation, improper tax payments, and the role of constructive trusts as trumps in bankruptcy. He further tackles the recent restitution claims of slave laborers (or their descendants) against corporations that benefited from their enslavements, and of governmental bodies against injurious industries. Dagan argues that the concept of unjust enrichment is not an independent reason for restitution but, rather, serves as a loose framework. By integrating doctrinal and ethical analyses of restitution across the spectrum of restitution contexts, the author offers significant and provocative insights on existing law as well as possible reforms.

The Conflict Over Jewish Property in Europe

The robbery and restitution of Jewish property are two inextricably linked social processes. It is not possible to understand the lawsuits and international agreements on the restoration of Jewish property of the late 1990s without examining what was robbed and by whom. In this volume distinguished historians first outline the mechanisms and scope of the European-wide program of plunder and then assess the effectiveness and historical implications of post-war restitution efforts. Everywhere the solution of legal and material problems was intertwined with changing national myths about the war and conflicting interpretations of justice. Even those countries that pursued extensive restitution programs using rigorous legal means were unable to compensate or fully comprehend the scale of Jewish loss. Especially in Eastern Europe, it was not until the collapse of communism that the concept of restoring some Jewish property rights even became a viable option. Integrating the abundance of new research on the material effects of the Holocaust and its aftermath, this comparative perspective examines the developments in Germany, Poland, Italy, France, Belgium, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

In the Western legal tradition, the history of restitution for unjust enrichment reaches back to pre-classical Roman law. In common law, the roots of unjust enrichment may be said to lie in the fourteenth century; but its history as a subject of academic study is much shorter. The law of restitution has become increasingly important in the courts of the common law world during the last decade. This has generated a great deal of scholarly attention and there has been an explosion of literature as legal academics have addressed the theoretical foundations of the subject, its structure and its underlying principles. This volume collects the most important elements of that literature, organized thematically, to show how the subject is developing and where it is likely to go in the future.
