Order and Conflict

Subtheme I

Perhaps the most striking characteristic of the Europeanisation and globalization of law is that legal regimes, legal orders and levels of lawmaking are interlocking, create interdependencies, and claim autonomy. Lawmaking and law application increasingly take place in multiple legal contexts.

Research under this subtheme focuses on the nature, mechanisms, and processes of interaction between national, European and international law; between public and private legal actors and practice; between institutions, regimes and sub-orders. It focuses on divergent conceptions of justice; on overlapping and competing rights and remedies; on complexity and fragmentation; on transformative effects and new complex legal structures that may be emerging as a result of the interlocking and disconnecting of legal contexts.
