Shaping Rule of Law Through Dialogue
The process of fragmentation of the international legal order, and the absence of constitutional devices governing the connections between the various legal regimes, can be reduced to a rational picture only through the activity of the judges. Against this background, judges play a crucial role in creating connections between legal regimes and proceedings. The metaphor of dialogue has been widely used in literature, and this concept was variously understood in different meanings: a vehicle for transplants, an informal way of communication between judicial and political bodies, or a new paradigm of judicial relations between actors not belonging to the same legal order. Starting from this assumption, this book brings together scholars belonging to different fields of legal research - constitutional law, EU law, WTO law, public international law, jurisprudence - in order to carry out a comprehensive appraisal of this phenomenon. The book provides a wide picture of the latest development of the role of the judges in the international legal order.
