The Redress of Law

Globalisation, Constitutionalism and Market Capture

Emilios Christodoulidis

Présentation de l'éditeur

From a legal-philosophical point of view, The Redress of Law presents a critical analysis of a number of related doctrinal fields: constitutional, labour and EU Law. Focusing on the organisation and protection of work, this book asks what it means to protect work as an essential aspect of human (individual and collective) flourishing. This is an ambitious and highly sophisticated intervention in contemporary academic and political debates around a set of critically important questions connected to processes of globalisation and market integration. The author redefines the nature of legal and political thought in an age in which market rationality has exceeded its classic domain and has come to pervade the organization of social and political life. This restatement of critical legal theory is intended to defend the concept of constitutionalism and suggest new ways to deploy the law strategically.

Emilios Christodoulidis holds the Chair of Jurisprudence at the University of Glasgow. He is the author of the award-winning Law and Reflexive Politics (1996), edits the book series Critical Studies in Jurisprudence, and serves as managing editor of Law & Critique.
