Summary note:
Law beyond the State brings together contributions by renowned experts on international and European Union law to celebrate the centennial of Goethe Universität Frankfurt. The essays explore Frankfurt's contribution to the development of international law; the historical development of international law; how this form of law can be used as a tool to improve the world and create a better future for all; the essential relevance of the spiritual dimension of legal orders, including the European Union, to ensuring their values will be taken seriously; and the possibility, offered by the Internet, for all persons concerned with global lawmaking to participate effectively in relevant decision-making processes.
Notes:
"Commemorating 100 years of Frankfurt University, its Faculty of Law convened, in cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence "The Creation of Normative Orders," a workshop analyzing Frankfurt's role in the past development of public international law and European (Union) law as well as looking into the futures of these areas of law as essential components of a "Law Beyond the State"--Back cover.
