Resistance to Codification and Avoidance of State Jurisdiction in the Twentieth Century

(p.206) Chapter 8 Reinsurance Law as an Autonomous Regulatory Regime?
Managing Risk in Reinsurance

Miloš Vec

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, Miloš Vec looks at the regulatory environment of reinsurance. He describes the law of the global reinsurance industry as a unique, normative order, formed, above all, by the relationships between reinsurers and the reinsured. Characteristic of this normative order in the twentieth century was the interest of parties engaged in international activities in, first, keeping contracts as free as possible from legal requirements and, second, keeping disputes resulting from breaches of contract out of the courts. The trends towards increasing importance of legal frameworks and practices (juridification), state intervention, and bureaucratization that are often observed in other areas of law have not had the same kind of impact in the reinsurance industry. However, the author argues that the strategy of resisting regulation has not been entirely successful, and reinsurers are now increasingly subject to juridification.
