Download e-book for kindle: Gemeinnützigkeit im offenen Steuerstaat (Jus Publicum) by Michael Droege

By Michael Droege

Das Steuerrecht bietet mit dem Gemeinnützigkeitsrecht einen Anreiz zum freiwilligen gemeinwohldienlichen privaten Engagement. Es ist allerdings durchsetzt von Wertungswidersprüchen und auf die Einbettung des deutschen Steuerstaates in den europäischen Binnenmarkt kaum vorbereitet. Vor diesem Hintergrund befasst sich Michael Droege mit den theoretischen Grundlagen und der rechtswissenschaftlichen Dogmatik des Gemeinnützigkeitsrechts. Er greift über den steuerrechtlichen Bereich hinaus und legt Grundlagen für ein öffentliches Recht des Raums zwischen Staat und Markt unter den Bedingungen der Europäisierung des Rechts. Zugleich zeigt er, dass das Gemeinnützigkeitsrecht dann eine Zukunft hat, wenn es der doppelten Öffnung des Staates hinreichend Rechnung trägt. Rechtssetzung, -dogmatik und -anwendung müssen sich auf die Rahmenbedingungen eines pluralen und europäisierten Gemeinwohls einstellen.

Jens Dammann's Materielles Recht und Beweisrecht im System der PDF

By Jens Dammann

Die Grundfreiheiten des EG-Vertrages begrenzen die Regelungsautonomie der Mitgliedstaaten. In einer Welt, die durch das Bestehen tatsächlicher Unsicherheiten geprägt ist, werden diese Grenzen nicht allein durch materiellrechtliche Anforderungen an die mitgliedstaatliche Gesetzgebung bestimmt. Vielmehr kommt auch beweisrechtlichen Aspekten, insbesondere der Beweislastverteilung und dem Beweismaß, eine tragende Rolle zu. Materielles Recht und Beweisrecht stehen dabei nicht isoliert nebeneinander, sondern entfalten erst im Zusammenspiel ihre Wirkung. Für die Auslegung des EG-Vertrages ist diese Interdependenz von wesentlicher Bedeutung. Es ist anerkannt, dass teleologische Erwägungen bei der Auslegung des EG-Vertrages eine zentrale Rolle spielen. Ob eine bestimmte Auslegung den Zielen einer Vorschrift oder des Vertrages insgesamt dient, lässt sich jedoch nicht ohne Blick auf die Konsequenzen dieser Auslegung beurteilen.
Diese Konsequenzen ergeben sich ihrerseits erst durch das Zusammenwirken von Beweisrecht und materiellem Recht. Sucht guy deshalb nach derjenigen Auslegung, die der ratio conventionis am ehesten gerecht wird, so kommt guy nicht umhin, sowohl beweisrechtliche als auch materiellrechtliche Aspekte zu bedenken: Aus teleologischer Sicht ist diejenige Auslegung des Vertrages geboten, die beweisrechtliche und materiellrechtliche Vorgaben in optimaler Weise verbindet. Jens Dammann schlägt eine Auslegung der Grundfreiheiten vor, die dieser Einsicht gerecht wird.
