Abstract

Transnational law is an institutional framework for cross-border interaction beyond the nation state. In distinction of territorially organized national and international law, it is structured as a plurality of functionally specialized transnational law regimes, which in a pragmatic approach combine different governance mechanisms of private (norms, alternative dispute resolution, social sanctions) and public (laws, courts, enforcement) origin, where the latter are dis-embedded from their domestic context. This article explores the concept of transnational law.
