Abstract

As globalization blurs borders and business operates across them, industry associations transpose their political activities to the global level, organizing transnationally, pursuing new sites of influence, and seeking harmonization. Their efforts affect the content of international legal norms, both public and private. This short essay introduces a symposium issue of AJIL Unbound that addresses the roles and mechanisms through which industry associations influence and shape law as part of transnational legal processes, potentially giving rise to transnational legal orders.

Keywords: industry associations, globalization, transnational legal orders
