New publication : A la recherche d’un modèle économique et d’un système juridique respectueux de la planète et de ses habitants, synthèse commentée de “Rethinking capitalism", RED 04, 2022

In 2022 the European Law Review (ELR) in 2022 ("RED 04"), published its fourth edition, edited by Ms K. Pistor (Columbia Law School) and Mr G. Canivet (former First President of the French Court of Cassation and former member of the Constitutional Council), dedicated to "Rethinking capitalism".

RED 04 consists of 29 contributions, making it an impressive collective work of high quality in which no less than 42 minds have been working on the question whether capitalism should be rethought.

These minds come from Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Israel, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Singapore, Scotland, Slovakia and the United States. They are experts in law, economics, ethics, finance and are active as analysts, lawyers, researchers, consultants, writers/essayists, philosophers and, above all, teachers.

After two introductory contributions, RED 04 is divided into five sub-themes: (I) governing companies: between profit and purpose (four contributions), (II) politics, companies and corporate policy (five contributions), (iii) law, markets and inequality (six contributions), (iv) the challenge of sustainability (six contributions) and (v) rethinking the foundations of capitalism (six contributions).

All contributions have been reviewed by L. Cornelis. With a view to stimulate constructively the debate he bundled his thought provoking views in a contribution which is now available on
