Pandora's Box 2013: A Trip Abroad

In 2013, Pandora's Box took its readers on 'A Trip Abroad', with an international and comparative law theme. The volume featured a wide range of contributions, from cultural heritage law to the French criminal justice system. Inside, you will find a variety of insights from highly distinct and equally distinguished voices - taking readers to the high seas, the streets of Paris, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, the Niger River delta, the high-rise firms of Japan, the Pyramids of Giza, and around the globe again many times over.
