The author addresses the question whether globalisation of law is possible in a world full of tensions due to an increase in economic inequality and the rise of national and regional differences. She questions whether it is reasonable or imaginable to have an organised set of norms when the helter-skelter proliferation of norms and the displacement of landmarks create instead the impression of normative disorder. She asks whether the globalisation of law is ethically desirable, when none of our international institutions are currently able to guarantee respect for democratic values. These, and so many more, are the challenges we must meet to build this common law of humanity that is just beginning to develop, perhaps for the first time in history. This book by the highly respected French legal theorist Mireille Delmas-Marty, contributes significant insight into the evolution of international law. Originally published in French under the title 'Trois Defis Pour Un Droit Mondial'.
