‘Unprecedented crisis’ has become a popular term used by media outlets and academic discourse to describe the present state of affairs in the world. Certainly, the last decade has been marked by epochal shifts in the global order, of which the 2008 economic crash and the current pandemic are the poster children. These and other unfolding crises are yet to be appropriately studied and understood, but for now one thing is certain: these events have shaken both the core and peripheries of the global order. In this series, we will be addressing how these crises have been impacting the experience of law at the edges of global governance.. With prominent speakers from across the globe, we will engage in conversations to highlight perspectives and positions from and of the peripheries.
