4th International Annual Conference of the Cluster of Excellence

Legal Cultures, Legal Transfer, and Legal Pluralism

10-12 November 2011

Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main
Campus Bockenheim, Alte Aula

The subject of the conference concerns recent developments of normative orders in general and legal orders in particular: The fact that in the area of globalisation our traditional image of an integrated normative order within a nationstate on one territory which can be identified by its borders becomes more and more obsolete. International and transnational norms emerge and influence or determine national law, different kinds of norms govern people on the local as well as on the global level and different actors of normativity are active beyond territorial borders. The fact of legal pluralism reveals the other fact that law is and always was an integral part of cultures – and the plurality of cultures determines in a certain way the pluralisation of law as well as conflicts about the law and the different processes of exchange and transfer between different normative orders. It is also obvious that the fact of legal pluralism has a long historical continuity – and it might be that a unified and centralized national law and legal code was an exception and not the normal condition of modern societies.
