Globalisation, Law and the State
It surveys three areas that are typically associated with globalisation.
On this basis it considers how global legal norms are formed, how they enmesh with the norms of other legal orders, and how they create pressure for legal harmonisation.
Rather than labour the point, the book identifies some economic, political and cultural dimensions to the phenomenon and uses these to analyse existing and emerging challenges to State-centric and territorial models of law and governance.
As is customary in globalisation literature.
With an acknowledgement of the definitional difficulties associated with globalisation.
Financial markets, the internet, and public contracts.
While some of the themes addressed here will be familiar to students of the European process there are prominent references to the European experience throughout the book, Globalisation, Law and the State.
As well as trade more generally, the environment, human rights, and national governance.
- This, in turn, leads to an analysis of the corresponding challenges that globalisation presents to traditional notions of sovereignty and the models of public law that have grown from them.
