FAZ reviews Dr Matthias Rüping’s dissertation

In the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung of 16 October, the dissertation of BMH Bräutigam lawyer Dr Matthias Rüping was reviewed. In his thesis ("The Responsible Citizen - Model of German Private Law?"), Rüping describes how the idea of individual responsibility in German private law has become less prevailing in recent decades. Regulatory systems that treat the citizen as a chronically overburdened person in need of constant protection have taken its place e.g. in consumer, tenancy and employment law. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung considers Rüpings dissertation a "cleverly thought-out argument for private autonomy and responsibility of citizens".
