Global Public Goods Symposium

Global Public Goods and the Plurality of Legal Orders

24 - 25 October 2011

Programme of the event.   

The symposium was organised by the European Society of International Law, the American Society of International Law, the European Journal of International Law, and the HiiL project on Private Transnational Regulatory Regimes.

The symposium explored whether and how the co-existence, interaction, and antagonisms of different legal orders (international law, domestic law, EU law, regimes established by private actors) and their driving agents (regulators, contract-makers, and courts and tribunals) contribute to creating and maintaining global public goods. Contributors discussed transatlantic perspectives on how different legal orders may contribute to the production and management of public goods.
