SummaryThe research project “The Exercise of International Public Authority“ analyzes the public authority exercised by international institutions. It is based on the recognition that forms of international or global governance condition, supervene or substitute domestic processes and thus impact the possibilities of individual and collective self-determination. The project attempts to establish a coherent framework for the legal analysis of global governance phenomena on the basis of a normative concept of public authority.
