The Faculty of Law, the Maison Française d'Oxford, and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CRNS) organized the international workshop on The Theory and Philosophy of the Globalisation of law, which took place at the Oxford Law Faculty on 18 and 19 November 2013.
The workshop started with welcoming words by the Dean of the Oxford Law Faculty, Professor Timothy Endicott and the organisers, Raphaelle Nollez-Goldbach (CRNS) and Dr Pavlos Eleftheriadis (Oxford). During the workshop the papers and the discussions raised many interesting and significant issues. Topics ranged from discussions of particular provisions of international consumer protection, non-juridical responses to mass atrocity, and the Severian period of the Roman Empire as an example of a global legal order, to the wider significance of legal pluralism, global justice, and Law after Modernity. The international workshop was open to all, and gathered many postgraduates and academics from different departments at the University, sharing an interest in the philosophy of law, international law, European Union Law and global justice.
