Ashgate Studies in Transnational Law provides a forum for research on various aspects of transnational law. In this context, this is viewed as the study of law (on its own or in conjunction with other norms) that regulates actions and events that transcend national borders, including: public and private international law; state and non-state actors; business; administrative law; governance; negotiation and litigation; among others. To reflect the subject, the series seeks to attract authors internationally, from both developed and developing countries so as to present the broadest possible range of issues and perspectives. It is envisaged that topics will be largely thematic and comparative in approach. However, volumes that include a number of individual country studies will be considered if relevant to the wider aims of the series.
