Legal Experiences of Competition among Institutions

  • Christoph Engel

Abstract

Thomas Hobbes would not have liked our topic. The very purpose of his Leviathan was to end chaos and bloodshed, which had been lasting in his country for decades, by the voluntary submission of everybody under a unified and strong state. The law as the primary emanation of the state must therefore be obeyed without exception. This implies a negative attitude towards institutional competition (Hobbes, 1668, ch. 26) 1
