Temporal Boundaries of Law and Politics : Time Out of Joint, Hardback Book

Temporal Boundaries of Law and Politics : Time Out of Joint Hardback

Edited by Luigi Corrias, Lyana Francot

Part of the Law and Politics series


In the last decade, the changing role of time in society has once again taken centre stage in the academic debate.

A prominent, but surely not the only, aspect of this debate hinges on the so-called acceleration of time and its societal consequences.

Despite the fact that time is fundamental to the way in which law and politics function, the influence of the contemporary experience of time on law and politics remains underdeveloped.

How, for example, does society's structural acceleration impact on justice?

Does law actually offer stability and predictability in an ever-changing global world?

How can legal and political institutions function in the wake of ever-increasing uncertainty?

Both law and politics employ time to order society but they are also limited in what can be effectuated by time.

It is this very tension between temporal possibilities and limitations that the contributors to this collection - drawn from different fields of law, as well as from other disciplines - examine.
