He has also published a number of articles dealing with transnational (transterritorial) administrative decision-making, recognition of foreign administrative acts and international administrative unions. He is a member of the Czech Association of International Law and of the International Nuclear Law Association. Introduction 1. 80 years ago Karl Neumeyer 2 published the 4 th volume of his studies in “International Administrative Law”. 3 While in the first three volumes of his studies (published in 1910, 4 1922 5 a 1926 6 ), he dealt in particular with identifying those norms providing for territorial application of domestic or foreign public law in various legal relations, 7 the 4 th volume of the “International Administrative Law” dealt with theoretical issues of the subject in general. In particular, Karl Neumeyer provided for basic rules regarding transboundary effects of administrative decision making ( die Rechtserheblichkeit ausländischer Amtshandlungen ) in selected situations (recognition of foreign administrative acts, transboundary effects arising from either multilateral or bilateral international agreements, cases of executing public powers in specific legal situations 8 ). Despite the fact that these issues were also partially touched on by some earlier authors (in particular by Prospero Fedozzi 9 in his monumental work “International Administrative Law: a Systematic Outline” 10 ), Karl Neumeyer is currently considered 11 (together with Donato Donatti 12 and Giuseppe Biscottini 13 ) to be the founding father of the science of international administrative law. 14 2 Karl Neumeyer (1869–1941), Ordinary Professor of International Private Law (1926) and Dean (1931) of the Law Faculty, Ludwig – Maximilian University in Munich. 3 NEUMEYER, K.
