Law has become the vehicle by which countries in the 'developing world', including post-conflict states or states undergoing constitutional transformation, must steer the course of social and economic, legal and political change. Legal mechanisms, in particular, the instruments as well as concepts of human rights, play an increasingly central role in the discourses and practices of both development and transitional justice. These developments can be seen as part of a tendency towards convergence within the wider set of discourses and practices in global governance. While this process of convergence of formerly distinct normative and conceptual fields of theory and practice has been both celebrated and critiqued at the level of theory, the present collection provides, through a series of studies drawn from a variety of contexts in which human rights advocacy and transitional justice initiatives are colliding with development projects, programmes and objectives, a more nuanced and critical account of contemporary developments. The book includes essays by many of the leading experts writing at the intersection of development, rights and transitional justice studies. Notwithstanding the theoretical and practical challenges presented by the complex interaction of these fields, the premise of the book is that it is only through engagement and dialogue among hitherto distinct fields of scholarship and practice that a better understanding of the institutional and normative issues arising in contemporary law and development and transitional justice contexts will be possible. The book is designed for research and teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. ENDORSEMENTS An extraordinary collection of essays that illuminate the nature of law in today's fragmented and uneven globalized world, by situating the stakes of law in the intersection between the fields of human rights, development and transitional justice. Unusual for its breadth and the quality of scholarly contributions from many who are top scholars in their fields, this volume is one of the first that attempts to weave the three specialized fields, and succeeds brilliantly. For anyone working in the fields of development studies, human rights or transitional justice, this volume is a wake-up call to abandon their preconceived ideas and frames and aim for a conceptual and programmatic restart. Professor Balakrishnan Rajagopal, Ford International Associate Professor of Law and Development, Massachusetts Institute of Technology This superb collection of essays explores the challenges, possibilities, and limits faced by scholars and practitioners seeking to imagine forms of law that can respond to social transformation. Drawing together cutting-edge work across the three dynamic fields of law and development, transitional justice, and international human rights law, this volume powerfully demonstrates that in light of the changes demanded of legal research, education, and practice in a globalizing world, all law is "law in transition". Anne Orford, Michael D Kirby Chair of International Law and Australian Research Council Future Fellow, University of Melbourne A terrific volume. Leading scholars of human rights, development policy, and transitional justice look back and into the future. What has worked? Where have these projects gone astray or conflicted with one another? Law will only contribute forcefully to justice, development and peaceful, sustainable change if the lessons learned here give rise to a new practical wisdom. We all hope law can do better ? the essays collected here begin to show us how. David Kennedy, Manley O Hudson Professor of Law, Director, Institute for Global Law and Policy, Harvard Law School

Nicht zuletzt durch eine Reihe von öffentlichen Skandalen wurde in den letzten Jahren die »Neue Verfassungsfrage« aufgeworfen. Menschenrechtsverletzungen durch multinationale Unternehmen, Korruption im Medizin- und Wissenschaftsbetrieb, Bedrohung der Meinungsfreiheit durch private Intermediäre im Internet, massive Eingriffe in die Privatsphäre durch Datensammlung privater Organisationen und mit besonderer Wucht die Entfesselung katastrophaler Risiken auf den weltweiten Kapitalmärkten – sie alle werfen Verfassungsprobleme im strengen Sinne auf. Ging es früher um die Freisetzung der politischen Machtenergien des Nationalstaats und zugleich um ihre wirksame rechtsstaatliche Begrenzung, so geht es nun darum, ganz andere gesellschaftliche Energien zu diskutieren und in ihren destruktiven Konsequenzen wirksam zu beschränken. Konstitutionalismus jenseits des Nationalstaats – das heißt zweierlei: Die Verfassungsprobleme stellen sich außerhalb der Grenzen des Nationalstaats in transnationalen Politikprozessen und zugleich außerhalb des institutionalisierten Politiksektors in den »privaten« Sektoren der Weltgesellschaft.

Law's Ethical, Global and Theoretical Contexts examines William Twining's principal contributions to law and jurisprudence in the context of three issues which will receive significant scholarly attention over the coming decades. Part I explores human rights, including torture, the role of evidence in human rights cases, the emerging discourse on 'traditional values', the relevance of 'Southern voices' to human rights debates, and the relationship between human rights and peace agreements. Part II assesses the impact of globalization through the lenses of sociology and comparative constitutionalism, and features an analysis of the development of pluralistic ideas of law in the context of privatization. Finally, Part III addresses issues of legal theory, including whether global legal pluralism needs a concept of law, the importance of context in legal interpretation, the effect of increasing digitalization on legal theory, and the utility of feminist and postmodern approaches to globalization and legal theory.

English summary: E-commerce integrates the consumer into global markets. But who provides the necessary institutional framework for international contractual exchange? Gralf-Peter Calliess analyzes in detail the current German legal regime for cross-border consumer contracts as well as recent reform projects in Europe and the United States. The results are devastating: the nation states are both unable and unwilling to guarantee legal certainty and fairness on the global market place. Within the broader context of the global governance debate, transnational legal regimes based on co-regulation of states, industry, and civil society are proposed as an alternative. The New Law Merchant as well as the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy of ICANN are taken as blueprints for a global consumer protection regime, the establishment of which can be observed on the basis of codes of conduct, trustmark schemes, and online dispute resolution systems. German description: Welche Folgen hat die Europaisierung und Internationalisierung der Markte fur das Schuldvertragsrecht? Insbesondere die rasante Entwicklung des elektronischen Geschaftsverkehrs hat den Ruf nach einem Europaischen Vertragsrecht oder gar einem Weltprivatrecht wieder laut werden lassen. Am Beispiel des Verbrauchervertragsrechts fragt Gralf-Peter Calliess nach dem Schicksal bisher vom Nationalstaat garantierter sozialer Schutzrechte in der Globalisierung. Im ersten Teil analysiert er das geltende deutsche, europaische und internationale Recht der grenzuberschreitenden Verbrauchervertrage. Im zweiten Teil untersucht er Losungsansatze fur die neue Problemlage, dass nicht nur die internationale Kaufmannschaft, sondern auch unerfahrene Verbraucher direkten Zutritt zu den Weltmarkten haben. Er beleuchtet aktuelle Entwicklungen im internationalen Privat- und Zivilverfahrensrecht und kommt zu einem vernichtenden Ergebnis: die Nationalstaaten sind weder willens noch in der Lage, fur Rechtssicherheit und Gerechtigkeit auf globalen Markten zu sorgen. Der Autor fragt deshalb nach dem potentiellen Beitrag von privater Ordnung und zivilgesellschaftlicher Global Governance zur Entstehung einer Weltrechtsordnung. Ist Recht auch jenseits der Nationalstaaten denkbar? Am Beispiel der Lex Mercatoria und der ICANN UDRP werden Voraussetzungen, Funktionsweise und Legitimation nicht-staatlicher, transnationaler Zivilregimes erlautert. Im dritten Teil wird schliesslich die Entwicklung eines transnationalen Verbrauchervertragsrechts fur den elektronischen Weltmarktplatz nachgezeichnet.
