Abstract

The paper briefly presents the Brussels School of Jurisprudence (BSJ) and its pragmatic theory of Global Law. It summarizes the results of several researches carried out during the last fifteen years at the Perelman Centre in various fields of emerging global normativities. The papers argues that the current phase of globalization requires us to enlarge the province of jurisprudence. We should extend our analyses and critiques to other kinds of norms and normative devices that are complementing, sometimes replacing but more often competing with classic legal rules and institutions in the global environment.

Keywords: Brussels School of Jurisprudence, Global Law, Globalization, Global Standards, Global Indicators, Global Governance
