Show Summary Details


This Introduction states the main objective of this book, which is to draw attention to a phenomenon that is omnipresent in global governance, something that seems largely neglected by international lawyers, namely, informal international lawmaking (IN-LAW). On the basis of extensive empirical studies1 this book is going to highlight elements of normative global processes that prima facie fall outside the traditional scope of ‘law’ but may nevertheless be seen as forming part of a lawmaking process.

Keywords: global governance; international lawyers; IN-LAW; global processes; lawmaking processes

Chapter.  4858 words.
