Inaugural event: global law, transnational law and method


Panel Discussions


Speakers: Professor Neil Walker (University of Edinburgh), Professor Peer Zumbansen (Kings College London), Dr Elaine Fahey (City University London) (Discussant)

Series: GLOBALLAW@CITY: On Global Law, Justice and Regulation Series

This inaugural dialogue focuses upon the relationship between global law and transnational law.

  • What are the methodological and normative distances between its respective proponents or interlocutors?
  • How do taxonomies or etymology influence the individual author?
  • Does a distinctive private or public law background to a scholar define or influence their expression of law beyond the State in this context?

In this dialogue, Professor Neil Walker and Professor Peer Zumbansen present their respective methods, methodologies and normative approaches to the place and definition of law beyond the State and how this influences the broader normative perspective.
