Global Norms in a Divided World

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


This symposium will address the impact of growing nationalism on the global normative order. What happens when global norms, though widely held, now categorically fail to find positivisation in law and politics? What function can law still play in relation to global norms under these conditions? And what of the apparent paradoxical co-dependent relationship between political division and the increasing formulation of global norms through social movements and social media? Do these reflect the evolution of a global legal system, capable of giving positive formulation to global norms? Or are they functional equivalents that signify the final exhaustion of law at the global level? The symposium will bring together scholars from a range of different perspectives and jurisdictions to address these questions, and others, on the theme of global norms in a divided world.
