Congratulations to my esteemed colleague Professor Roberto Virzo for his new book “La confisca nell’azione internazionale di contrasto ad attività criminali” in the series ‘Legal Culture and International Flows’ (of whose Scientific Board I have the honor to be a member) !
The Book Series ‘Legal Culture and International Flows’ mainly originates from
the necessity to give account of the increasing weight that the law of international
trade exercises on the overall structure of the international legal order, as
well as on domestic legal systems and EU law. Due to its peculiar cross-cutting
approach, the Series fills in a gap in the editorial landscape by focusing on
two main areas of interest. On the one hand, it is aimed at analysing the concept
of international trades, comprehensive of both its private (e.g. international
contracts) and public (e.g. investment protection and WTO) dimensions. On
the other hand, the Series delves into the concept of “legal flows” in its broadest
meaning, i.e. as a reference to the circulation of principles and normative
schemes between legal systems. From this angle, the concept is essential for giving
account of the cross-fertilization taking place between the areas of interest
of the Series. The Series is intended to include monographs, textbooks, and edited
Roberto Virzo is a Professor at the Università degli Studi del Sannio di Benevento – an esteemed partner of the University of Lausanne.
