This book is an unprecedented attempt to analyze the role of the
law in the global movement for social justice. Case studies in the
book are written by leading scholars from both the global South and
the global North, and combine empirical research on the ground with
innovative sociolegal theory to shed new light on a wide array of
topics. Among the issues examined are the role of law and politics
in the World Social Forum; the struggle of the anti-sweatshop
movement for the protection of international labour rights; and the
challenge to neoliberal globalization and liberal human rights
raised by grassroots movements in India and indigenous peoples
around the world. These and other cases, the editors argue, signal
the emergence of a subaltern cosmopolitan law and politics that
calls for new social and legal theories capable of capturing the
potential and tensions of counter-hegemonic globalization.
