Politics of Transnational Law

About the Series

Politics of Transnational Law is edited by Tanja Aalberts and Wouter Werner (VU Amsterdam, the Netherlands).

This interdisciplinary series explores the changing dynamics between politics and law in a globalizing world. These dynamics illustrate the growing importance and vitality of cross disciplinary research that transcends traditional disciplinary divides, domains and categories. Focused on the ‘Politics of Transnational Law’, this series provides a platform for studies that critically reflect on the interplay between politics and law as international and transnational practices. It investigates the heterogeneous landscape of contemporary law-making, and the different kinds of politics this global ordering relates to. The series is unique in that it is jointly shared by the law and politics divisions within Routledge and will be actively promoted in both subjects areas.

Editorial Committee for the series:

Prof. dr Jeffrey Dunoff, Temple University Beasley School of Law, USA
Prof. dr Fleur Johns, University of New South Wales, Australia
Prof. dr Friedrich Kratochwil, Central European University, Hungary
Prof. dr Anna Leander, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
Prof. dr Gregor Noll, Lund University, Sweden
Dr Sarah Nouwen, Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge, UK
Dr Nikolas Rajkovic, Tilburg University, the Netherlands
