Abstract

The focus of the presentation is on those countries of South-East Europe which had been part of the socialist camp but later transitioned to a democratic system and a free-market economy.
The first part deals with the EU harmonization of company law in Bulgaria and Romania, and the second part with private international law reforms under the influence of the acquis communautaire in Albania, Bulgaria and in Yugoslav successor states. The paper highlights certain aspects based on the experience of the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg with its South-East European partners.
