Prof. Lucas Fucci Amato, Faculty of Law, Sao Paulo, a former visitor at CSLS, has published together with his colleagues Prof. Marco Antonio Loschiavo Leme de Barros and Prof. Gabriel Ferreira da Fonseca a new book: ‘World Society’s Law: Rethinking Systems Theory and Socio-Legal Studies’ (2020). The book develops debate – beyond a focus on Western modernity - about Niklas Luhmann’s systems theory against the backdrop of an expansion of the world society, including revivals of authoritarian politics, pandemic threats, and the rise of digital communication.
