Filling Power Vacuums in the New Global Legal Order

Friday, October 12, 2012 | 9:00 a.m. – 5:15 p.m. | East Wing room 200

Globalization is a complex social process with many descriptions, definitions, critics, proponents, causes and implications. This symposium will focus on the consequences of one salient feature of globalization, nearly universally acknowledged—the devolution of power from the state. The symposium will examine a question that so far has received little attention in the scholarly legal literature: After power has been decentralized from a state-centric monopoly, where does it flow, and what forms does it take?

1:00 p.m.
