Global Administrative Law; State in Transnational Law; Transnational Networks of Courts
The analysis of processes of the globalisation of law needs new paradigms beyond the reference to traditional state-based law – including international law. Global administrative law, in particular, should not be conceived as a phenomenon that is no longer state-based law and not yet the law of a coming world state. It is a new heterarchical order in its own right. The theoretical and practical challenges of its network structure can only be met by approaches that are focused on a new relational rationality of meta-rules for the management of conflicts of heterogeneous norms. This goes for administrative law as well as for the transnational cooperation of courts.
