Russia, The European Union and the CIS
Edited by: Eric Engle
This is a collection of essays about Russian law and economics with respect to the Russian federation's relations to the European Union and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The book confronts the challenges facing a transition economy in its struggle for economic development through market forces, and its efforts to impose the rule of law, not men, on a former dictatorship. The topics addressed range from Russia's relationship to the EU and other CIS states, to a variety of commercial law topics. Key contemporary issues in Russian intellectual property law, tax law, and merger and acquisition law are addressed by Russian jurists writing in English. The problems of corruption or bureaucracy are addressed directly and openly in the hope that increased EU and US cooperation with the Russian Federation will lead to better international relations.
