Start date 18 June 2015
End date 19 June 2015
Time 12:30
Architecture of Postnational Rulemaking

This event is organized within the project 'The Architecture of Postnational Rulemaking'.

Background and aim

If only one accepts that the exercise of public authority cannot be tied back to any single level of governance or any single actor, the question strongly suggests itself how such authority should be divided. The workshop approaches authority in global governance as relative and asks how it should be divided between institutions and levels of governance. In search for normative standards, it probes separation of powers doctrines, investigating its potentials and also its limits for thinking about relative authority in global governance.
