¿¿his is a course about the legitimacy of law in times of globalization. Developments in global law are reconfiguring the state-centric model of sovereignty common to the 19th and 20th centuries. Contemporary forms of international and transnational governance now interpret cosmopolitan norms, enforce basic human rights, and claim administrative authority beyond the nation-state. This seminar conducts a multi-disciplinary study¿drawing on political philosophy, critical legal and social theory, history, socio-cultural studies, and ethics¿of alternative models of sovereignty and law and considers their implications for the understanding and enforcement of rights post-nationally. Special focus will be given to histories of international institutions, humanitarian intervention, the constitutional pluralism of the European Union, recent developments in the laws of the United States and the European Union regarding immigration and the right to asylum, and global debates on migration.
