This book - one in the four-volume set, Global Governance and the Quest for Justice - focuses on themes of citizen organisation and empowerment set in the context of globalising legal processes.

The first part considers the implications of the improved opportunities for communication that are associated with ""globalisation"". What are the legal and political consequences of these apparently empowering technological advances? Do they allow for groups to find new forms of association and organisation?

The second part focusses on issues relating to access to justice (as a mode of empowerment) and its impact on the functioning of civil society. For instance, is forum shopping the answer for individuals who find that their national governments are unable or reluctant to protect their interests?

The third part of the collection debates the globalisation of legal mechanisms and the role that law is playing in the reshaping of the global order, raising fundamental questions, including how far particular legal concepts are fit for global adoption, and whether prevalent western legal conceptions are necessarily the right ones to be adopted.
