Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the trends (internationalisation of law and the growth of private governance regimes) are used to explore the future of the global legal environment. The chapter illustrates scenario analysis by applying it to the future of the global legal environment. It briefly sketches these scenarios that picture possible global legal environments that emerge in 2030. The scenarios are meant to invite lawyers and legal scholars to picture what the global legal environment looks like if the trends described either continue or reverse. Regional and sub-regional organisations have become the ultimate defence against what were widely perceived to be out-of-control international institutions and an international environment in which common values are scarce. By using these scenarios national legislators can improve their legal strategies and prepare for a world in which global law becomes predominant.

Keywords: global law; global legal environment; international institutions; internationalisation of law; legal scholars; national legislators; private governance regimes
