This paper examines two main aspect of import/export of rules and legal categories as a crucial point in comparative law and politics: 1) that normally the process is not governed by the exporting party but rather by the importing actors, according to local strategies; 2) that the most of legal systems in the world are "hybrids", so that "pure" models (basically English, French and German) are isolated historical cases and as such are substantially unimportant in depicting how law really works in the world legal landscape.
