The globalization of law in markets and politics. The research on law and markets focuses on international trade law, with special reference to the ways in which international trade organizations, such as UNCITRAL, UNIDROIT, and the Hague Conference on Private International Law, create global norms in such diverse areas as corporate bankruptcy law, maritime law and secured transactions.
