Jurisprudence for an Interconnected Globe

Front Cover
Catherine Dauvergne
Ashgate, 2003 - Law - 253 pages
This book explores the interaction of globalization and the development of law. The framework of the book is established by William Twining, who asks how legal concepts can be generalised within a variety of legal orders. This theme is taken up by a group of leading Australian scholars, who produce essays on international economic law, including financial regulation and human rights, and citizenship, migration and crime, under the headings Globalization and the Laws of Money, Globalization and the Laws of People, Globalization, Cultures and Comparisons. This collection marks an important step towards the construction of a jurisprudence for a connected, but still culturally diverse, globe.
