Abstract

This article explores legal change by analysing crisis discourse's ability to call for change, thereby disrupting current hegemonic legal discourses. The theory and case study presented here demonstrates how crisis discourse functions to call for change and how it can be used in the executive branch and spill-over into the legal argumentation of the judicial branch.

Keywords: crisis discourse, legal change
