Centre for Global Legal Priorities (CGLP)

Centre for Global Legal Priorities (CGLP)

The Centre for Global Legal Priorities (CGLP) aims to produce research dealing with the changing nature of international law. Centre members believe that international law will play an increasing role in regulating human affairs. A robust form of law transcending borders is needed to deal with many of the challenges humanity now faces. The centre, working with researchers in Development Economics and Politics, is looking at two themes:

  • Global Challenges - Global Law, which builds on Professor Joel Trachtman's research in public international and international economic law.
  • Foreign relations, national security and associated political theory, building on the work of Professor Philip Bobbitt.
