The concept of transnational legal orders (TLOs), and the framework erected around that concept, opens up many avenues for empirical research and theoretical development regarding law and legal orders. This concluding chapter teases from the empirical case studies themes that clarify and enrich our understanding of TLOs and their scope, settling, alignment, institutionalization, and impacts. The themes covered are not exhaustive, but they exemplify the dynamics of TLOs and their framing, rising and falling, generation and propagation, contestation and resistance, structuring and nesting, mapping and moralities. We proceed by extracting from the chapters categories, hypotheses, and questions about these dynamics in order to open up the landscape of future research. For convenience, we list the collected hypotheses in Appendix I.
