GLB: Advanced Philosophy of Global Law

Provided by: Tilburg
Bachelor's degree (EQF level: 6)

The course draws on the sociology of globalization and on legal and political theory to propose a model of legal order that explains how globalization transforms law and how law gives shape to globalization processes. The course develops these questions and issues in six parts: (1) the passage from state-centric law to global legal pluralism; (2) (global) legal ordering as a process of including and excluding; (3) the contestation of emergent global legal orders by alter- and anti-globalization movements; (4) authority and struggles for recognition in a global context; (5) Global constitutionalism and its limits; (6) Recapitulation of the course material.
