Netherlands Reports to the twentieth International Congress of Comparative Law
L.P.W. van Vliet (ed.)
The XXth World Congress of Comparative Law was held in Fukuoka in 2018, organised by the International Academy of Comparative Law. Many legislators appointed expert groups who worked on draft legislation based on solid comparative research. More and more, comparative law finds its way into national legislation, learning from the experiences in other jurisdictions.
A comparative legal analysis of a large number of jurisdictions demands setting up a network of national reporters who write an in-depth report about their own jurisdiction. The national reporters of the Netherlands Comparative Law Association provided clear and informative insights in the development of Dutch law in the designated areas. Their reports are not only important for the general reporters on the relevant topic, but will remain important for future comparative research done by other researchers.
