Rethinking Unjust Enrichment: History, Sociology, Doctrine, and Theory

Sagi Peari (Editor), Warren Swain (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited book/Anthologypeer-review


Rethinking Unjust Enrichment collects a range of views which question the dominant position of the unjust enrichment movement. It accommodates a broad range of voices: starting with those sceptics who think that the current unjust enrichment doctrine must be seriously qualified, ending with those sceptics who think that it should be eliminated altogether. The contributions cast doubt on the various parameters of unjust enrichment from an analytical standpoint representing the following four interrelated perspectives: (1) history; (2) sociology; (3) doctrine; and (4) theory. The four-limb structure of Rethinking Unjust Enrichment enables us to understand the current problems of unjust enrichment on the deepest levels of its history, sociological forces, doctrinal fallacies, and normative deficiencies. Critically, the collection aims to reinvigorate a constructive dialogue between supporters of unjust enrichment and those who are more sceptical.
