Abstract

In dit artikel vergelijk ik de Nederlandse erfrechtwet van 2003 met andere rechtsstelsels. Het artikel is in drie onderdelen opgevat. Intestaatserfrecht voor bloedverwanten, de langstlevende echtgenoot en dwingend erfrecht. Voor elk onderdeel becommentarieer ik de nieuwe Nederlandse regels en zet ik ze in contrast met het recht van andere rechtsstelsels. Ik concludeer dat het het Nederlandse recht is verduitst wat betreft het intestaatserfrecht en veramerikaanst wat het dwingend erfrecht betreft.

In this article I compare the new Dutch inheritance law of 2003 with other jurisdictions on the international scene. The paper is divided in three parts. Intestate succession law for blood relatives, and for surviving spouse and imperative or forced succession law. For each topic I comment on the new Dutch rules and then put them on the international scene to conclude that the new Dutch law has been germanified for its intestate law and anglo-americanized for its imperative law.
