The Philosophy of Globalized and Internationalized Law
CONVENOR: Isabel Trujillo
In the last decade there have been important contributions to the philosophy of international law, a long-time neglected topic in legal philosophy because of the dominance of a state theory of law. The aim of this workshop is not to pursue this line of research – even if it will necessarily be part of the picture, together with the research on global law –, but rather to consider which changes and challenges for legal philosophy come up, and which elements for understanding law emerge if we take the international and global legal dimensions seriously. There could be different ways of comprehending normativity, or the force of law, or the claim of justice, or the institutional components of law. There could be different relationships between law and morality, or between law and society, or between law and democracy and so on.
