Authority and the globalisation of inclusion and exclusion

    Research output: Book/ReportBookScientific


    Protracted and bitter resistance by alter- and anti-globalisation movements
    shows that the globalisation of law transpires as the globalisation of
    inclusion and exclusion. Humanity is inside and outside global law in all its
    possible manifestations. But how is this possible? How must legal orders be
    structured, such that, even if we can now speak of law beyond state
    borders, no emergent global legal order is possible that does not include
    without excluding? Is an authoritative politics of boundaries possible that
    neither postulates the possibility of realising an all-inclusive global legal
    order nor accepts resignation or political paralysis in the face of the
    globalisation of inclusion and exclusion? These pressing questions guide
    this book, opening up a vast field of enquiry that demands integrating
    sociological, doctrinal and philosophical perspectives and insights.
