This book enters from an analysis of current developments in law and governance into an exploration of new expressions of democracy and the rule of law. These new expressions are explored both theoretically and operationally. In bridging the gap between national and international constitutional development and between the public and the private realms, this book also offers an innovative approach to constitutional questions.

This publication is aimed at the academic scholar and professional as well as at students in the fields of law and politics. It will be of interest to policy makers and civil servants, as well as those engaged in policy issues through NGOs.


Dr. Sophie C. van Bijsterveld is Associate Professor of European and Public International Law at Tilburg University. She has published extensively in the fields of (international) human rights protection, constitutional law, and hybrid governance.
