Globalization poses a fundamental challenge to the discipline and practice of law. This challenge goes beyond the study of different fields of law, it demands a new way of conceptualizing law for a global era. At the center of research in this area are questions such as: How should ’law’ be conceptualized in the global network age? How does global law draw boundaries, in interaction with state law? How can the development of new regulatory modalities be orchestrated in a globalized world? How can the protection of human rights be guaranteed in a global context?
Law, Technology and Society
Technology companies have a growing influence on economic and social relations in society. Companies such as Uber and Airbnb change the way in which products and services are offered to consumers, whilst Facebook and Alphabet develop their business with the help of data obtained from consumers. Challenges that arise in this technology-driven economy are how fundamental rights and values can be safeguarded without stifling innovation. Research in this field may for example focus on labour relations, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and enforcement.
Law and sustainability
We live in an era that is also referred to as the Anthropocene. Human beings have a dominant influence on the world around us. In this context we have to deal with the challenges of climate change and sustainability. Legal questions that arise in this context are for example: How can law and governance respond to the challenges of climate change and sustainability? What could be the role of law in developing positive strategies for sustainability?
Safety and Security
Conflicts and wars, in combination with technological developments, have given rise to a new front of criminal activity and terrorism. Society and citizens are vulnerable and questions arise as to how we can guarantee safety and security. The role of law in this context is complex: on the one hand the law is a crucial instrument for local and global actors in the pursuit of security goals; on the other hand, sanctions imposed by governments can on occasion test the limits of the national and international rule of law. Research in this area can for example focus on international (human rights) law, criminal law, or victimology.
