Abstract
The talk proposes a distinctly public law approach to the deep transformation in the conduct of public affairs epitomized by the term global governance. We find in many policy fields an increasing number of international institutions playing an active and often crucial role in decision-making and policy implementation, sometimes even affecting individuals. Thus, a private real estate sale in Berlin is blocked by a decision of the UN Security Council Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee; the construction of a bridge in Dresden is legally challenged because the affected part of the Elbe river valley had been included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage; or educational policies most relevant to our children are profoundly reformed due to the OECD Pisa rankings. These examples illustrate that governance activities of international institutions may have a strong legal or factual impact on domestic issues. This calls upon scholars of public law to lay open the legal setting of such governance activities, to find out how, and by whom, they are controlled, and to develop legal standards for ensuring that they satisfy contemporary expectations for legitimacy.
