              Other aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Jura - Andere Rechtssysteme, Rechtsvergleichung, Note: A, Victoria University of Wellington, Veranstaltung: LLM Research Paper, Master Abschlussarbeit, 59 Eintragungen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Englisch, Abstract: This essay deals wi...th directors' duties, focusing on the duties that specially arise in the context of a company becoming insolvent. The relevant duties are those under sections 131, 135 and 136 of the Companies Act 1993. The drafting of these insolvent trading provisions in New Zealand has been criticised in the legal literature. This research paper considers not only this criticism but also deals with the more general debate about the value of insolvent trading provisions in general. Although the current drafting of the relevant provisions in New Zealand is not without minor flaws, the need for creditor protection requires the maintenance of insolvent trading provisions in general. Besides that, this essay looks at the remedies for breaches of directors' duties. The most important provision in this context is s 301 Companies Act 1993. Pursuant to this provision both the liquidator and individual creditors can enforce directors' civil liability. However, the possibilities of individual creditors to obtain payment directly to themselves are restricted. The final part of this essay considers the question whether a separate duty directly owed to individual creditors should be introduced. Although such a duty seems to have some benefits, it would not be commensurate with leading principles and ideas of Insolvency Law and should therefore not be introduced. It is the concern of this research paper to point out the many issues that arise in context of directors' duties and insolvency law and to show that it is important to strike an appropriate balance between the intended creditor protection and the entrepreneurial freedom of company directors.

              Defendants and Victims in International Criminal Justice: Ensuring and Balancing Their Rights

              This volume considers a variety of key issues pertaining to the rights of defendants and victims at International Criminal Courts (ICTs) and explores how best to balance and enhance the rights of both in order to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of international criminal p...roceedings. The rights of victims are becoming an increasingly important issue at ICTs. Yet, at the same time, this has to be achieved without having a detrimental impact upon on the rights of the defence and the efficiency of the courts. This book provides analyses of issues on the rights of both the accused and the victims. By discussing matters concerning these two pivotal actors in international criminal justice within the same volume, the work highlights that there are intrinsic and intense conflicting and converging relationships between victims and the accused, particularly in terms of their rights. While most of the chapters focus mainly on either the accused or the victims, others discuss both at the same time. The work strikes a fine balance between, on the one hand, classic topics on the rights of the accused and the rights of the victims and, on the other, topics which have been largely unexplored and/or which require new angles or perspectives. Additionally, there are some chapters which approach both the rights of the accused and the rights of the victims in new contexts and/or under novel perspectives. The book as a whole provides a discussion of the two sides of this important coin of international criminal justice. The work will be an essential resource for academics, practitioners and students with an interest in the field of international criminal law. It will also be of interest to human rights scholars who are working with the rights of victims and the accused.
