- The statutory prohibition of market manipulation in Zimbabwe
Market manipulation includes, inter alia, a practice that interferes or attempts to interfere with the free and fair operation of the securities and financial markets by creating an artificial, false or misleading appearance of the price of, or market for, the relevant securities, commodities or financial instruments. Consequently, market manipulation is treated as an offence in many countries, including Zimbabwe. For instance, market manipulation is expressly prohibited under the Securities Act 17 of 2004 (Chapter 24: 25) as amended (Securities Act 2004). In light of this and for the purposes of this article, the adequacy of the statutory prohibition on market manipulation in Zimbabwe will be examined. Accordingly, selected key elements, types, examples, penalties and definitional aspects of the market manipulation offence under the Securities Act 2004 are discussed. This is done to unpack and examine the adequacy of the Securities Act 2004 in relation to the combating of market manipulation in the Zimbabwean financial markets. It is hoped that the recommendations enumerated in this article will enable policy makers to develop optimal regulatory measures that promote investor protection and effectively combat market manipulation in the Zimbabwean financial markets. Keywords: market manipulation, financial markets, offences, penalties
- The legitimacy of acquisition of state territory
Nowadays academia offers new approaches to understanding of state borders, territorial disputes, armed conflicts and wars. While the principles of territorial integrity and inviolability of frontiers are central to the current system of international law, they are sometimes inoperative before the law of force. Moreover, the peaceful resolution of territorial disputes contributes to international security. The purpose of this article is to examine the problems of the legitimacy of acquisition of territory in the past and present, as well as to provide insight into some issues related to the state sovereignty over disputed areas in international territorial disputes. The historical, comparative, inductive methods were used while researching the problem of legitimacy of acquisition of state territory. The study may be implicated during taking decisions concerning investments in Crimea, Transnistria or Nagorny Karabakh. Keywords: International Court of Justice; arbitration; territorial disputes; effectivities; state sovereignty; occupation

- Constitutional pluralism and legal perspectivism in European Union law
During the past decade, new theories of (constitutional) pluralism have challenged the classic authority and primacy of EU law as asserted by the classic jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union. This school of thought, represented by many different authors, has tried to construct a new horizontal relationship between legal orders and European supreme jurisdictions. Constitutional pluralism has enjoyed doctrinal success but also received harsh criticism. This study reviews the most important literature and argues that the (constitutional) pluralism diverse strands of scholarship represent a continuation of what, in philosophical terms, can be termed "legal perspectivism" as conceptualized by Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset in 1923. It explores the question when EU law should have higher authority and primacy over national constitutional laws from both classic and new perspectives. No legal theory of EU constitutional law has so far been universally accepted by all actors. It concludes with the finding that the critique to the unconditional authority of EU law that constitutional pluralists have brought to the European field is still alive and extremely relevant both in theory and in practice. Keywords: European constitutional law; European integration; legal pluralism; literature; legal perspectivism
- Totalitarianisms and the establishment of objective legal order
The order of liberal political systems is the result of the dialectic between objective and subjective. It is based on the understanding of freedom as a formal, constitutive condition of society. Totalitarianism denies this dialectic, while altering at the same time the objective and the subjective meanings of order. This is why they cannot be valid legal orders, either in the objective sense, or in the subjective sense. The purpose of our study is to analyze the arguments that support the idea that the "concrete" orders of totalitarian regimes cannot be considered objective legal orders. The arguments are structured in four directions of analysis: 1. basing totalitarian order on legitimacy eliminates the need for legality; 2. totalitarian order is not a system of norms, but one of forces; 3. in totalitarian orders the distinction between norm and measure is no longer made; 4. the rules generated by totalitarian order are no longer the result of any institutionalization. The conclusion that emerges from these arguments is that in totalitarian systems objective law does not exist validly. If the Nazi and the communist languages still retain the term "law", totalitarian thinking destroys the very concept of law. Keywords: totalitarianism, nazism, communism, liberalism, legal order, legality, legitimacy, validity
- Interest in the context of tax relations: traditional approach and trends of tax management development

It focuses on the process of tax management, which is based on the interconnection of private and public interest. The authors emphasize that the private and public interest in taxation is implemented through the processes of rulemaking and law enforcement.

The authors use methods of comparative legal analysis and legal modeling to describe the relationship between tax management and ensuring the implementation of private and public interest. The following is proposed in the context of the study: the definition of the content and legal nature of private and public interest in taxation, the disclosure of the peculiarities of their combination during the establishment and collection of tax payments in the state, the implementation of a comparative analysis of domestic and foreign legal doctrine and legal practice in this area. Keywords: interest, tax relations, tax policy, tax management
- The legal nature of the individual employment contract in the spirit of Kosovo's integration in the European Union

- The natural environment. The development of an institutional protection framework - a permanent concern of the European Union
The environmental policy is a relatively new field in the European Union, even at the level of the current year, 2019. Although initially it was based on the creation of general measures programs, within which certain specific measures were adopted, currently, the permanent existing global climate changes can no longer be ignored by national, European or global organizations and institutions. As such, in time, especially in the last decade, the European Union has been forced, by virtue of the principles governing the relationship between the EU law and that of the Member States, to find solutions to the serious problems caused especially by pollution, but also by a series of other climatic causes. Thus, the environmental policy of the European Union is based on a number of principles, including that of precaution, prevention, diminish of pollution from its source, as well as that of the polluter's liability. In this regard, the present paper aims to summarize the measures taken so far at the level of the European Union, as well as to identify additional protective measures that will also lead to the fulfillment of the European Union Sustainable Development Strategy. Keywords: environmental policy, sustainable development, environmental causes, action program
