Working group

TLWG - Transnational Law

The Transnational Law Working Group (TLWG) was launched in 2011 as a forum for researchers specifically interested in post-national legal developments.

The working group focuses on issues related to transnational law from a theoretical, as well as a practical perspective. We have a broad understanding of what transnational law means: in general, it is related to legal phenomena beyond state law (or the inter-national law). It can therefore include "transnational private regulation", but also supranational law like European Law or WTO Law.

The working group is first and foremost a venue where EUI researchers interested in transnational law can present their work and get critical feedback. It is also a chance to exchange our readings and to share our case studies. Additionally, we aim to invite external scholars working in the field.

This working group is not currently active.
