Center on Global Legal Problems
The center addresses globalization’s legal dimensions through diverse interdisciplinary research and scholarship. Formed to create a venue for researchers from across different disciplines to study emergent processes of multiple, overlapping governance regimes with diverse stakeholders, to re-conceptualize existing theories of law and governance in light of changes currently under way, and to assess emergent regimes and draw normative implications. To this end, the center will organize colloquia and workshops at Columbia University and its newly formed global centers, launch collaborative research projects with researchers across disciplines, sponsor postdocs and research fellows, and organize conferences.
