Additional Book Details

Globalization is a far-reaching and multifaceted phenomenon whose effects on law are just beginning to be appreciated fully. Globalizing Justice examines the effects of globalization on law and court systems in the developed and developing worlds. How has the global spread of legal norms changed the relationship between international, supranational, and national courts? How are transnational and international legal norms transmitted and received? The contributors utilize a variety of approaches—historical, comparative, normative, and empirical—to expose the extensive effects of globalization in areas such as human rights, universal criminal jurisdiction, citizenship, and national sovereignty. This volume sheds light on the global spread of information and the cross-border migration of legal ideas across the world to further open up the discussion of globalization in the social sciences.
