Abstract

Juridification is an ambiguous term, both descriptively and normatively. In this article we distinguish between five dimensions of juridification: constitutive juridification, juridification as law's expansion and differentiation, as increased conflict solving with reference to law, as increased judicial power and as legal framing. In the first part, we clarify the five dimensions. In the second part, we discuss the relationship between them and in a third and concluding part, we briefly comment on some of the challenges we are faced with from a normative point of view.
