TEGL Lecture Series

Welcome to The Transformative Effects of Globalisation in Law (TEGL) lecture series webpage. Here, the project group hosts an online lecture series focused on specific research themes within the TEGL project.

With the aim of providing broad access to the research that is being conducted, this lecture series will have both introductory as well as more specific lectures. 

Upon the launch of a new series, there will be monthly uploads (accompanied by some selected reading). Once the series is complete, all lectures will remain available here so they can serve as a lasting resource within and beyond the TEGL research group.

 

 

TEGL Lecture Series 1: Business and Human Rights

The first online TEGL lecture series focuses on Business and Human Rights. Globalization and international business go hand in hand, for better or for worse. This marriage poses challenging questions about the need, possibilities and limits on regulating the world-wide impact of businesses. 

The introductory lecture ‘Doing business in a globalized world’ will set the stage. After that, the series will touch upon topics such as corporate law making, the influence of tech companies on democracy, environmental protection vis à vis business actors, human rights protection in trade law and contract law, the corporation as an international legal entity and the mechanisms and dilemmas of extraterritorial enforcement.
