Contestation in Global Norm Making

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Antje Wiener presents an ambitious study of the process of norm constitution, contestation, and reconstitution in global politics. Crossing the fields of international law (IL), international relations (IR), and public philosophy, it engages in sustained theory building to address the book’s core problematique: “whose practices actually do count for normative change” in global politics (3)? Building on the author’s previous work (Wiener 2008, 2014) this book is a major feat, bridging IL and IR to provide a novel macro-theoretical account of global normative order building that has spurred a new generation of theoretical, empirical, and normative literature in IR. It provides an entry point for IR scholars into the field of sociolegal research on global norm making and, importantly, grounds normativity as a primary pursuit of IR norms theorizing.
