► Presentation of the theme:  "The "Obligation" is at the heart of many disciplines. Compliance techniques very often take the form of obligations. But to mention only the first questions that come to mind and in cases, especially those that are referred to the courts, it is paradoxically not so much Contract Law and Tort Law that have been used, since Compliance Law is on the one hand often assimilated to the mass of applicable regulations and its unilaterality characteristic of Regulatory Law, the branch of Law that Compliance Law extends, and on the other hand it is often associated with ethics, morality, a shared culture, everything that seems to distance it from Obligation.

The notions of "duty" and "commitment" are increasingly taking their place in Compliance Law, although their scope is still uncertain. This is why, beyond the multiplicity of "compliance obligations", one may ask whether there is an "obligation to comply", what its definition would be and its relationship with everything that, in Compliance Law, is not one obligation. 

It is the topic of this conference and the articles that will follow to identify what will be this hypothesis, which is becoming more and more frequent and could become the standard.


Method chosen to deal with the topic: For contributing to what will later become the book on the Compliance Obligation, constituting its first chapter aimed at identifying what could be a definition of Compliance Obligation, the method is not to start from the legal instruments of compliance but rather for each of the contributors to draw on their discipline, which they has mastered technically, in order to project it and formulate what, on the basis of this previous mastery and according to his or her own conception, is or should be, or should not be, the Compliance Obligation.

Each speaker gives a half-hour presentation on his topic, which is followed by a 15-minute debate.


The proceedings of this colloquium will form the basis of the first chapter in the books: 

📕L'obligation de Compliancein the collection 📚Régulations & Compliance, copublished by the Journal of Regulation & Compliance (JoRC) and Dalloz.

📘Compliance Obligation, in the collection 📚Compliance & Regulation, copublished by the Journal of Regulation & Compliance (JoRC) and Bruylant.
