Gunther Teubner

Oxford Constitutional Theory

  • Breaks new ground in the sociology of constitutional law, opening new avenues of research for the empircal study of transnational, private constiutional order
  • An original contribution to constitutional theory that shifts the terms of debate from reliance on state constitutions to constitutions of social fields
  • Develops new applicable doctrines on the horizontal effects of human rights and conflicts of law in transnational regime collisions
  • Presents a compelling argument for the application of constitutional norms in the private sphere as a solution to the current crisis of international governance
