Globalization and Law

Globalization and Law

Globalization is a key focus of study in the social sciences. Globalization processes have a fundamental impact on the sovereignty of states and their citizens. Law forms part of the regulatory dialogue of globalization and is centrally implicated in these processes, while the rule of law itself is globalizing as a value. This series is devoted to an exploration of the role of law in globalization and providing cross-disciplinary understanding of the ways in which law and globalization are inter-linked. It will be an international resource for scholars, policy-makers and regulators working on globalization in the fields of law, international economics, political economy, international relations, political science and sociology.
