Law tends to have a rather fixed view of the proper or valid legal subject. This collection challenges law's inherent constructions of normality and the 'normal' subject. Taken together, the articles cover issues as diverse as marginalized identities and agencies, transnational families, the legal position of vulnerable citizens, the complex relations of care and work, as well as gender and queer aspects in law.

The book looks at the nation state and citizenship, and relates these public and political issues to the most nuanced and personal of questions, such as gender, intimate relations and private identities. Focused, yet broad in scope, this collection examines what happens to the subject of law in the intersections of its different domains, as well as in the interplay of international and national law. By doing so, it reveals how often unspoken understandings affect the autonomy, protection and agency of individuals; whilst highlighting the importance of communities and identities that are often hard to grasp in legal terms.
