Summary
The existential challenges currently facing the world – climate change, migrations, pandemics – can only be met through global cooperation. But are we able to agree on global rules? – The study of history reveals the fundamentals of an international language of law on which we can draw.

The aim of the project “Glocalizing Normativities” is to better understand these mechanisms.
