Abstract

This is the first issue of the European Journal of Comparative Law and Governance. It is the successor to the Electronic Journal of Comparative Law, established in 1997 by the Law Faculties of the Universities of Tilburg, Utrecht and Maastricht in the Netherlands. The ejcl began as an open-access journal, focussing on comparative private law, more particularly the methodology of comparative law. Gradually, over the years, the journal’s aim and scope broadened and it became a more general journal of comparative law that was well respected. It was also more and more used as a platform for organisations active in the area of comparative law, looking for a widely accessible forum. In this respect especially the Netherlands Comparative Law Association and the World Society of Mixed Jurisdiction Jurists can be mentioned. Nevertheless, methodological questions underlying comparative legal research were not forgotten. The present change in focus from comparative law generally to comparative law and governance is, therefore, not a radically different approach, but the outcome of a gradual process of change in both comparative legal scholarship and growing awareness of the enormous importance of governance as a crucial issue of legal development. This finally resulted in a change
