Most widely held works by Harald Walach. Neuroscience, consciousness and spirituality by Harald Walach 12 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Neuroscience, Consciousness and Spirituality presents a variety of perspectives by leading thinkers on contemporary research into the brain, the mind and the spirit.
This volumes aims at combining knowledge from neuroscience with approaches from the experiential perspective of the first person singular in order to arrive at an integrated understanding of consciousness. Individual chapters discuss new areas of research, such as near death studies and neuroscience research into spiritual experiences, and report on significant new theoretical advances.
Foreman entitled "An Emerging New Model for Consciousness: The Consciousness Field Model," this book represents a milestone in the progress towards an integrated understanding of spirituality, neuroscience and consciousness. It is the first in a series of books that are dedicated to this topic. Meditation : neuroscientific approaches and philosophical implications by Stefan Schmidt 10 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide This volume features a collection of essays on consciousness, which has become one of the hot topics at the crossroads between neuroscience, philosophy, and religious studies.
Is consciousness something the brain produces? How can we study it? Is there just one type of consciousness or are there different states that can be discriminated? Are so called "higher states of consciousness" that some people report during meditation pointing towards a new understanding of consciousness? Meditation research is a new discipline that shows new inroads into the study of consciousness. If a meditative practice changes brain structure itself this is direct proof of the causal influence of consciousness onto its substrate.
If different states of consciousness can be linked with properties and states of the brain this can be used to study consciousness more directly. If the sense of self is modifiable through meditative techniques and this can be objectively shown through neuro-imaging, this has profound implications for our understanding of who we are. Can consciousness, in deep states of meditative absorption, actually access some aspect of reality which we normally don't?
Meditation research can potentially foster us with a new access to the phenomenological method in general. This has even been branded with a new catch-phrase: Contemplative Science. It brings together the most modern neuroscientific approach and the most advanced phenomenological methodology of studying the mind from within, through highly skilled self-observation that has gone through many thousand hours of honing the capacity to look carefully, without distraction. This book addresses these issues by bringing together some of the leading researchers and thinkers in the field.
Lecture 3 Dr. While the amount of relevant information and its availability is constantly expanding, the capacities of attention remain limited. One illustrative example for this problem is the current refugee crisis in Southeast Asia, and its discursive irrelevance in Europe. My contribution does not intend to dramatize this supposed or factual injustice. CV Dominik M. Border-crossings of large groups of people have been a constitutive phenomenon of the international system ever since the formation of political communities separating richer and poorer societies as well as peoples fi ghting wars or living at peace.
This is especially true for Europe with its rich history of warfare. This panel examines the reach, limits and deficiencies of the legal underpinnings of international and European refugee law as well as the lacking institutional and procedural context of joint European decision-making. His research interests are in the fields of social and international relations theory, foreign policy analysis, esp.
German and EUropean foreign policy, and international security, esp. Abstract The current refugee flow into the European Union is not, or rather does not need to be a crisis. It is a challenge for the management capacity of EU member states on the one hand and a challenge for the policy capability of the European Union on the other. In principle, Member States could handle the number of refugees if they would agree to cooperate.
The challenge has turned into a crisis because they refuse to do so and instead opt for national solutions. The conflictual dynamics lay bare the glaring weaknesses of the institutional design of the European Union as did the fi nancial crisis before. Our contribution analyzes the cooperation problems underlying the current crisis and delineates possible solutions.
Given the high number of people crossing borders daily, the little degree of institutionalised cooperation between nation-states on the task of migration governance comes as a surprise. States largely resist giving up longstanding notions of border and population control and avoid delegating competences to global actors. Where national agencies are unwilling or unable to deal with the arrival of large numbers of migrants and refugees, international public and private actors step in. How do these international actors perform the task of global migration governance at the European external border?
I will discuss examples from the Greek island of Chios where over , migrants entered Europe since the beginning of , overwhelming the capacities of the Greek local authorities. She studied political science and international relations theory at the universities of Bremen, Geneva and the London School of Economics and Political Science with a grant from the German National Academic Foundation.
She teaches on international political theory, global authority and legitimacy and global migration. In her current research project, she focuses on how global migration governance is made in and trough practice at the European external border. She spent two months as a volunteer on the Greek island of Chios to provide a political sociology of the public and private organisations which respond to the ongoing refugee emergency.
Her forthcoming publications include works on borders and democracy as well as participatory governance. Picture gallery:. If so, on what basis? Visiting Professor at Harvard Law School. In , she joined the Max Planck Society. Migration and Citizenship in a Time of Crisis" - 9th International Annual Conference Thursday, November 24th , pm - pm In our research, we integrate empirical and normative analysis of social changes and conflicts that lead to the re-formation of normative orders on national and transnational scales.
The current migration and refugee crisis is a case in point. In order to determine the responsibilities of states and other agents to offer solutions, guided by principles of justice or humanitarian moral considerations, we need a realistic picture of the sources and the many dimensions of the current crisis. Abstract Political theorists and practitioners alike are discussing freedom of movement extensively and controversially.
At the same time, we are still lacking profound empirical knowledge on that issue. Visa policies are the major instrument for regulating and controlling the global flow of people. They represent a form of exterritorialization of political control, which allows states to exercise it far beyond their own borders. With increasing migration flows, it makes sense to assume that their function of filtering wanted and unwanted types of travellers has gained importance over time.
On the basis of a large comparative data set we explore changing visa relations at the global level. We demonstrate the emergence of a global mobility divide, marked by increasing mobility for some people while others are immobilized. Moreover, we will look at the issue of reciprocity as a key principle of international relations. We seek to answer the question under which conditions reciprocity in visa relations prevails and which countries are able to establish asymmetrical visa relationships to their own advantage.

Jens Steffek has published six books and some 50 journal articles and book chapters. Abstract A liberal political theory of labour migration faces a serious dilemma. It takes the inequality generating effects of international brain drain to be morally objectionable, but cannot directly restrict the movement or occupational choice of labour migrants as a solution.
I argue that a plausible solution can be found by rethinking a basic tenet of liberal political theory. Namely, its ownership of talents thesis, according to which talents fall under self-ownership, but the benefits derived from the use of talents are legitimately owned against the background of fair cooperation. Rethinking fairness in labour migration on the basis of this radical view takes the following form.
Labour migration is currently driven by the immigration policies of affl uent states, aiming to fix their demographic and professional shortages and to gain competitive advantage in the global knowledge economy. It is yet unclear which normative ideas should guide a fair multilateral global governance of labor migration.
I conclude that a well-designed international brain drain tax and other types of in-kind knowledge and skills transfer and service schemes constitute fair terms of labour migration. The function of these normative constraints is to render the gains morally justified, and thereby normatively reorder rightful ownership in the global economy.
Her research in social and political philosophy focuses on the problem of fairness in labour migration, on reconciling global equality of opportunity and collective self-determination, and on rethinking relational egalitarianism in practice. Abstract This paper addresses some of the core claims that advocates of realism about migration tend to make when reflecting on the confl icts that the movement of people across borders poses for contemporary liberal democracies. I argue that migration poses serious questions of justice but that such questions ought to be examined in the context of a larger analysis of capitalist injustice, the historical context of its production and the agents responsible for and affected by it.
If we isolate the discussion of migration related problems and ground it on an abstract analysis of human rights to freedom of movement, morality of border controls or humanitarian compassion towards vulnerable people, we end up depriving ourselves of the most effective tools for identifying a remedy to them. She is interested in issues of global justice including migration and colonialism , democratic theory with particular focus on parties and the philosophy of the Enlightenment especially Kant.

Abstract Enlargement is considered one of the major successes of the European Union. As the cost of expansion has generally been expected to outweigh the benefits, why does the EU not just remain a club for the well off? But the wave of enlargement to Central and East European states in the fi rst part of suggests that it is bolstered by a specifi c commitment to Europe. But the EU has turned membership into a question of a right for those belonging to a specifi c community.
German Plays Tackle the World’s Woes, Current and Future
While making enlargement possible, this self-imposed duty also creates a particular challenge to the EU compared to other Western organisations such as for example to NATO. Enlargement may be an efficient means to resolve the fundamental problem of dominance and arbitrariness that is inherent in international politics, but it is only so within a certain scale. At some point a continuous expansion risks creating its own problems of dominance at a global level as well as malfunctioning at the regional level. Ultimately, it presents the Union with the unresolved dilemma of fi nding legitimate ways to justify the drawing of its borders.

Abstract This contribution deviates from mainstream accounts of political justice in three ways.
His research focuses on disarmament issues, theories of democratic peace, great power relations, disarmament, arms control, and non-proliferation. Abstract The contributions offers an approach to the Greek crisis that does not focus on its economic dimensions, but rather on a constitutional concept that is in the core of contemporary European debates: the rule of law.
Corruption, incoherent law formulation, and disproportionate delays in delivering justice suggest that Greece can be treated as a type of weak state within the EU. Without an effective administrative and judicial system, however, able to guarantee that norms do not stay in the books but govern effectively social conduct, the normative quality of law is undermined.
Two types of questions may rise from this observation. A closer look to the conditionality attached to the financial assistance offered to Greece indicates that the EU recognizes the problem and approaches Greece also as a state-building challenge. This dimension needs, however, to be strengthened and be explicitly treated as a rule-of-law problem.

Shortly after the collapsing financial markets had been rescued but the global economy had plunged into recession, the Eurozone became the center of economic turmoil.
The sovereign debt crisis of several member states Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain was answered with the provision of European and international public loans on a hitherto unseen scale, which at the same time attached strict conditions to the receiving states. These conditions primarily concerned the implementation of economic reforms aimed at regaining the trust of the financial markets and boosting the competitiveness of the respective economies.
Yet, as the recession worsened, the overall indebtedness of the states increased, and as the social fabric of the societies was on the point of rupturing specifi cally due to extreme levels of unemployment, especially among young people ever more actors began to oppose these prescribed reforms. After five months of fi erce negotiations with the so-called Troika, however, this government accepted a reform package that consists toa large extent of austerity measures. This panel brings together contributions from economics, political economy and political theory that seek to explore the ongoing crisis tendencies of and within the Eurozone.
From their respective viewpoints they ask how the framework of the EU and the specifi c nature of the Eurozone have contributed to these tendencies, as well as to the answers offered to the crisis; how the framework of economic governance within the Eurozone and the EU may have changed in the course of the crisis; and what prospects there are for dealing with the various dimensions of the crisis in the future.

Vortrag 1 Prof. Abstract We briefl y review various causes of the euro area crisis, examining in particular the flaws in the institutional framework of the European Monetary Union. Based on this analysis we will then provide an account of how the economic and financial adjustments need to be accompanied by institutional reforms and new forms of governance.
Moreover, the Single Market withstood the crisis as did monetary and financial infrastructures. Key question today: if so much has been done already why are we still in a crisis? Looking at Europe, reforms take time to display their positive effects. And they are only as good as they are implemented. There are many synergies between these unions.
But, there is also a political economy problem behind these unions: interdependencies between them suggests a need for sequencing or packaging but both have their difficulties. Sequencing is easier politically allows to deal with legacy for instance but it takes more time which is not necessarily there, particularly in crisis times and in some cases it may even not be optimal according to us when there are two-ways interdependencies.
Packaging is a priori optimal but not always possible consumes political capital and reforms do not all take the same amount of time to be implemented. Prior to that he spent several years as an economist at the International Monetary Fund in Washington. His main area of research pertains to the transmission of monetary policy impulses, the effects of the euro on the functioning of EMU, the links between monetary policy and heterogeneity in the euro area, and the links between economic integration and institutional integration.
Abstract After the outbreak of the global economic crisis, extreme austerity policies prevailed in many parts of the developed capitalist world, especially in the European Union EU and the euro area EA. Austerity has been criticized as an irrational policy, which further deteriorates the economic crisis by creating a vicious cycle of falling effective demand, recession and overindebtedness.
The first aim of the present paper is to give an answer to this discrepancy. In other words, austerity is offered as alternative to economic instability. What is urgently needed is a progressive policy setting that overrides this unfortunate trade-off. The paper will address this issue mainly from the viewpoint of political economy. He has also authored or co-authored some twelve scholarly books. His most recent books in English are Rethinking Imperialism.

Abstract There is a widespread concern that European integration is more than ever a technocratic process which has lost its connection to the foundational dimension of democracy. In my talk, I will scrutinize these tendencies and ask to what extent they can be contextualized as postdemocratic. In the light of the emerging austerity constitution, constituent power must be reframed as destituent power on the European level — a counter-power which aims at a re-negotiation of hegemonic structures.

But when it comes to the EU, there is massive disagreement as to what its standards of fairness, justice, and solidarity entail when it comes to solving financial or other crises. This panel thus asks: What are the justificatory standards by which we should measure EU policies, and how do we ground them?

How should the EU be understood as a polity, and what principles of social justice—or solidarity—does it encompass? Abstract In order to suggest a grounded normative assessment of Europe as a context of justice, I characterize the European context as a demoicracy in the making, that is a Union of peoples who govern together but not as one. In such a polity, we must avoid two pitfalls. The second is to fall in the mimetic fallacy which considers the EU as a polity akin to a state-writ-large with similar habits and rationale available to underpin the kind of socio-economic justice advocated by John Rawls.
Instead, they can serve as contested referents in a variety of localized democratic debates over the ends we deem desirable in the wielding of political power. Finally, we need to consider the extent to which the choice that is made to belong to the EU or the Eurozone is effectively constrained to different degrees for different actors, and therefore deserves to be treated at least partially in the same way as the kind of nonvoluntary membership we fi nd in classic states which leads to redistributive obligations.

Vortrag 2 Dr. Abstract From its beginnings, the European Union has been both an aspirational political project and an economic project. But the relation between political values and economic processes has not always been clear. In the architecture of the Eurozone, prices and dignity are intertwined in complex ways: prices, especially prices in financial markets, were distorted by political measures, some of which were presented in a rhetoric of dignity. Human dignity became the plaything of the forces of markets that put the material precondition for a life in dignity at risk.
Therefore, we need to reconsider the place and role of prices, and of the institutions that can secure human dignity, in our societies. Prices have a distinctive function in markets where they are supposed to signal scarcities and to bring about an effi cient allocation, including an effi cient allocation of risks. They cannot do so unless the risks of bankruptcy or defaults are carried by investors rather than the general public.
This perspective also sheds light on how to defi ne the proper place of markets in the Eurozone — not from the perspective of property rights or economic liberties alone, but from a functional perspective, as conducive to a dignifi ed life of all citizens. She studied philosophy, economics, politics and modern history at Munich and Oxford. Her research interests lie at the intersection of philosophy and economics, including the history of economic and political thought and normative questions about economic institutions and economic phenomena.

In my eyes, different justificatory challenges and potentials be they in degree or in kind come into play when we look e. With regard to the latter, the European legal order becomes more and more important, especially when the Member States wield extraterritorial powers via the mutual recognition principle think of the European Arrest Warrant. For these extraterritorial powers, which are facilitated by, but not per se rooted in the EU, need checks and balances.
And these checks and balances are in turn provided for by European constitutional law like the Charter of Fundamental Rights , which thus becomes a justificatory standard for the national administration of criminal justice.

Remarks on the Conceptual Landscape. Secularism and religion stand in a tense and ambivalent relationship to each other. This pertains both to the empirically observable reality of the political and cultural discourses in which norms and the scope of action are negotiated by social actors, as well as to scholarly debates. In non-western societies, too, questions regarding the significance of religion have been linked to conceptions of state and society as well as to debates on the rights of marginalized groups.
Since the Weberian paradigm of a necessarily secular modernity has been called into question, we have been discussing the validity claims of religion within the framework of the postsecularist thesis. However, doubts have been raised as to whether the paradigm offers a satisfactory framework for understanding current dynamics, particularly in non-European societies.

This remains a challenge that has been taken up by only a few scholars Sandal and Fox. A case in point is the gap between current scholarly work on secularism that still insists on some kind of differentiation, separation or neutrality between religion and politics and the socio-political reality of the relations between state and religion that is far from exemplifying this theoretical ideal.

Audio: Vortrag 1 Prof. Abstract The vast majority of societies around the world have, over the past 30 years, become increasingly multiethnic and multicultural; this development raises serious questions regarding the legal techniques available for managing social cohesion.
The contribution will be organised around three practical questions. The first question relates to the setting of cultural diversity: which arena in particular — geographic or regional — is at stake? The second question examines the origin of cultural diversity, that is to say the factors that have given rise to cultural diversity in the setting under scrutiny. The third question focuses on the interaction itself between law and cultural differences, and seeks to unravel the methods, solutions and processes utilized in each context in order to resolve disputes over culture and cultural differences.
Ultimately, the purpose is to describe and examine how, in various settings, State legal institutions and practices, case law and legal experience treat cultural diversity: in a protective way or, on the contrary, by imposing various types of restrictions upon it? And to draw empirically based conclusions from the comparison of different experiences with accommodation of diversity within the State legal framework.

Abstract It is a commonplace that the discipline of economics contributed to crisis, above all, as economic methodologies contributed to the fatal inflation of debt risk.
But what might be said of the role of law within this constellation? Much ink has been consumed detailing legal shortcomings within historical regulatory regimes for the financial services. However, a full accounting has yet to be made of the broader fault which may also be attributed to the premises of modern and increasingly post-national law, especially as they coalesce with a broader abdication of political responsibility for crisis. This lecture undertakes this accounting, investigating in legal theory particular, the processes whereby law has transformed itself into an economic technology within postnational regimes.
Pre-empting the politics within which social and economic stability might be defi ned and achieved, an economic technology of law has also survived crisis. Still seeking its own material legitimacy in the flattened pursuit of universal welfare gain within the optimized allocative effi ciency of new economic liberalisms, law has also emerged as one of the progenitors of crisis yet to come.

Her areas of expertise cover international crimes, armed conflicts, and global justice. Her doctoral research, at the European University Institute, underlined transformations and circulations of expertise and practices over the management of violent conflict in African countries across sectors of intervention in the North development; humanitarian action; rule of law reforms.
Her current research focuses on the expansion of the field of global justice and the transformation of political legitimacy at the international and domestic level, by studying both the professional trajectories of lawyers and other professionals operating within the International Criminal Court, and processes of diffusion of international criminal norms and transformation of fields of power within post-conflict settings on the African continent Burundi, DRC, Uganda.
She has published in leading journals in Europe on the role of the law, the expansion of global justice, and the global management of violent conflict, including as co-coordinator of special issues on war crimes of the French journal Actes de la recherche en sciences sociales, with Ron Levi and John Hagan forthcoming. The subject of the conference concerns recent developments of normative orders in general and legal orders in particular: The fact that in the area of globalisation our traditional image of an integrated normative order within a nationstate on one territory which can be identified by its borders becomes more and more obsolete.
International and transnational norms emerge and influence or determine national law, different kinds of norms govern people on the local as well as on the global level and different actors of normativity are active beyond territorial borders. The fact of legal pluralism reveals the other fact that law is and always was an integral part of cultures — and the plurality of cultures determines in a certain way the pluralisation of law as well as conflicts about the law and the different processes of exchange and transfer between different normative orders.
It is also obvious that the fact of legal pluralism has a long historical continuity — and it might be that a unified and centralized national law and legal code was an exception and not the normal condition of modern societies. Programme: Thursday, 10 November 6pm Welcoming Address 6. Legal pluralism is seen to be the answer to conflicts between norms of an overarching character with claims to supremacy on the one hand and norms of a more restricted personal and territorial scope on the other. Thus, efforts to implement legal frameworks for an economy that transgresses frontiers confront needs and ambitions of political, cultural or other origin in particular environments with competing claims to priority.

The two lectures of Panel IV will focus on the examples of the European Union and the spread of universal intellectual property protection. Both can be understood as reflections as to whether co-ordination deserves more attention as a technique than concept of normative hierarchies to resolve such tensions. His working fields have been public international law, EU law, and federalism. In the present critical state of the European Union the law appears overburdened by the functions it has been expected to fulfil. This is true with regard to the legalisation of monetary policy, the responses to the quest for social justice and now also in debates on nuclear energy.
His research deals with the Europeanization of private and economic law, transnational risk regulation governance structures. In he obtained an honorary doctorate from the University Freiburg i. Intellectual property IP laws are a modern phenomenon. Patent and copyright acts only date back to the 17th and 18th century. Nowadays, IP rights are recognized in at least countries. This surprisingly quick, global spread of IP legislation was facilitated by a number of legal transfers.
First, doctrines and narratives of justification developed for real property were applied to inventions and works of art. Second, the patent and copyright systems of Western Europe, already backed up by property theory, were transplanted to the rest of the world during colonialism. Third, counter-reactions of newly independent developing countries were settled by promising yet another type of IP protection, this time for traditional knowledge. He studied and received his doctorate in Freiburg After the second state exam and working as a lawyer in Berlin he was a Research Fellow and Head of U.
His research deals with the basic structures of justification and dysfunctions of the international system of intellectual property. Theories of modern legal pluralism are variants of two discourses which have begun decades ago. The first is legal pluralism within a state. The second paradigm of pluralism is global began after the Second World war with models of transnational trade law. Later, concepts of that kind were projected to other ages and areas, mostly taking the 19th century as a starting point. The two lectures will deal with domestic and global pluralism separately.
In both, specialized knowledge of particular normative environments plays a decisive role. His research interests are in the fields of international relations theory, international security, and the theory of foreign policy in general and German foreign policy in particular. The discourse of legal pluralism is becoming ubiquitous. Not only has it been revived with respect to new quasi- federal regional political formations like the European Union, it is also being invoked to account for transformed relations among legal orders created by the morphing of international organizations into global governance institutions.
Much ink has been spilled over whether a constitutionalist or pluralist discourse best suits these transformations and whether the black box of state sovereignty has been so penetrated by external, supranational jurisdictions or international regimes, humanitarian and human rights law , that the very concept of sovereignty has become an anachronism. Indeed it has now arisen in the context of long consolidated western, constitutional-democratic states. This paper will focus on the form of legal pluralism that delegates or shares state jurisdictional power with religious authorities particularly in the domain of personal law.
I will discuss new uses of this discourse focusing on the US case, although status group legal pluralism has become a contentious issue around the globe. I will address the question of what is the potential impact of status based legal pluralism on citizenship, political equality and sovereignty. It is important to distinguish among types of legal pluralism and I will do so in this paper. I will also examine, whether and in what respects personal status based legal pluralism poses a threat to threat to the achievements of modern democratic constitutionalism, individual human rights and republican political principles.

Legal scholars often suggest public and administrative law as a key remedy for the legitimacy problems of international governance. This idea has a long pedigree. In this lecture I discuss whether law can be as instrumental in democratizing global governance as it was in de-politicizing it. He has published widely on transnational governance, international organizations and the theory of international relations.
The plurality of normative orders and in particular the plurality of legal orders is by no way a new development. In the past it was the normal condition of human societies. Different actors and institutions had different degrees of a power of legislation and jurisdiction within one and the same society. Between different territories, groups and areas of legislation and jurisdiction complex processes of exchange and transfer took place. It is an example where a lot of research has been done.
But we still know very little about legal pluralism and the transfer of normative orders in Eastern Europe and Russia. The contemporary legal history searches for new models and terminologies in order to grasp the transfer of codes of law, principles of law, institutions, legal terminology or cultural habits of executioners of law. Here it is going to be reported on a project on south-east Europe to regarding the transfer of normative orders constitutional law, civil law, criminal law in former provinces of the Ottoman empire that have now become young nation states such as Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Serbia, and Albania.

Introduction: Christoph Menke The traditional nation state is no longer the only sovereign and supreme legislator. In the era of globalisation other legal actors play a more and more important role: International and supranational organizations like the EU are sometimes empowered to make valid law or they influence the lawmaking of national legislators. Governments regulate many issues by intergovernmental agreements that have an indeterminate legal status.
Private actors like multinational companies or NGOs are active in different processes of law making or they set their own rules and create normative orders by self-commitment. As a consequence the law becomes pluralised with regard to the different de-territorialized agencies and actors of legislation and jurisdiction and with regard to different kinds of normativity like, e. Is the fact of such a legal pluralism a challenge to traditional concepts of a unified law, is it a problem which has to be solved, is it an exaggerated description — or is it a new kind of order which we should promote because its advantages outweigh its disadvantages?
The center of his work is in the fields: Political and Legal Philosophy; Aesthetics. Anthropologists and historians have generally framed the study of legal pluralism in descriptive terms. Accordingly, they have catalogued both the inevitable hybridity that arises when two legal or quasi-legal systems occupy the same social space and the resulting strategic interactions that occur among actors in navigating the multiple regimes. As a descriptive enterprise, legal pluralism is relatively uncontroversial. After all, even the most die-hard sovereigntist would likely acknowledge that sub-, supra-, or non-state normative systems do impose real constraints that have real impacts.
More controversial is the idea that legal pluralism might be a normatively desirable approach to the design of legal systems.
As a normative project, legal pluralism can be seen to support two different strategies. First, what we might call substantive legal pluralism seeks a sort of multicultural accommodation of alternative norms, at least in certain delineated spheres. Second, a more proceduralist vision of legal pluralism aims to design procedural mechanisms, institutions, and discursive practices that seek to manage, without eliminating, pluralism, without making a priori substantive decisions regarding when deference to alternative norms is appropriate and when it is not.
Moreover, I argue that such a proceduralist version of legal pluralism, unlike the substantive version, need not commit one to a program of inevitable deference even to illiberal norms. Nevertheless, this proceduralist approach, precisely because it refuses to engage with some of the most contentious substantive political battles over when deference is appropriate and when it is impossible, may be distrusted or rejected by those on both sides of the pluralism debate who want more substantive normative certainty.

Among his many accomplishments Dean Berman exponentially increased programmatic offerings and pathways for students while significantly raising the national and international profile of the school. Berman is the author of numerous books and scholarly journal articles. Should legal pluralism be regarded as a challenge, in particular for a legal theory which still presupposes a unified and coherent concept of law? Or should it be defended because of normative reasons which claim that a plurality of legal orders and a plurality of different kinds of normative orders is advantageous compared to the traditional concept of law?
In my presentation, I shall take legal pluralism as a normative project and ask for some of its consequences. In particular I shall focus on possible changes in the structure of legality which might emerge from pluralism, e. Within the last decade or so, a new concept has made its presence felt in the world of legal scholarship: the concept of constitutional pluralism. The term has been adopted by a significant number of scholars in a variety of contexts and using different methodologies.

But behind these differences, there appears to be a common claim. This is to me a puzzling notion. In my presentation, I will offer some sceptical reflections on the nature and utility of this novel concept. Nobody denies that International Law should contribute to justice and peace, that a just world order will also be a requirement for a global state of peace.
Although the law plays a prominent role in the development of international organisations and international regulations of a globalised world, one can observe that International Law is also becoming more and more fragmented. Different authorities claim direct or indirect legislative power, legal regulations differ from one area to another, private actors and states cooperate or litigate against each other, soft law regulations and intergovernmental agreements are more influential than legally binding norms with courts and sanctions. The panel will address some of the problems resulting from the ambivalent state of international law: Is a fragmented and pluralistic law perhaps a better tool for ensuring global justice and peace?
Or can global justice only be realised within a constitutional framework? Does constitutionalisation make conflicts more or less probable or is it a tool for resolving conflicts? This contribution deals with the paradoxical relationship between the two main strands of theories on the current status of international law. On the one hand, the international dis order seems to fragment into different issue areas, with different actors and different standards or even different legal subjects, from investment law to human rights law.
We will see that fragmentation and constitutionalisation, as responses to globalisation, may well represent two sides of the same coin. Andreas L. In International Law both a categorical prohibition of unjustified use of force or other coercive means and constitutional principles transferred from the domestic realm into norms between states coexist.
