Peer Zumbansen on Why Compare?

My colleague Peer Zumbansen, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Toronto, Canada, has produced a marvelous essay on comparative law in the new world of transnational legal pluralism:  Peer Zumbansen, "Transnational comparisons: theory and practice of comparative law as a critique of global governance, " Transnational Comparisons 9: 186-211(2012).

I had the opportunity to engage with this excellent work in the course of a Global Governance Debate “On the Tension Between Public and Private Governance in the Emerging Transnational Legal Order” sponsored by the Robert Schuman Centre’s Global Governance Programme, European University Institute, Florence, Italy. April 16, 2012.

I titled my presentation:  "‘The Artist’: Legality and Legitimacy in the Savage Lands of Governance." It serves as an analysis of this work.  I have linked to the PowerPoints of the  presentation of made of this work HERE
