Moderated by Dikipa Jain, O. P. Jindal Global Law School
In this panel 3 trends are examined:
- Increasing transnationalisation of legal institutions since the early 1990s;
- A movement towards ‘global judicialisation’ and transnational litigation;
- Renewed debate over whether global judicialisation is capable of enforcing the rule of law and promoting local and global democracy.
The panel explores what is meant by globalisation as a hegemonic neoliberal project, and whether this phenomenon, if it exists, weakens or strengthens
the capacity of nation-States to enforce human rights. Finally, it asks what role NGOs play in relation to the role of the State in transnational legal
battles over human rights concerns?
