Jurisdictional Rivalries between Company and State

This contribution to the research theme Crossing Borders, centres on two questions posed explicitly by the subtheme, Boundaries and Legal Authority in a Global Context. The first is how to understand in normative and conceptual terms, the changing capacity of the state to regulate (in the face of) cross-border activity, and the second is the question of what renders authoritative, the acts of setting legal boundaries in a global context?

I will approach the two questions raised by the theme, in the practical context of how we should understand the relationship between the company and the state historically and today, orienting myself theoretically by what I have described elsewhere as ‘jurisdictional thinking’, an historically inflected jurisprudence.

This project forms part of the STIAS long-term project Boundaries and Legal Authority in a Global context within the Crossing Borders research theme.
