Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

This prescient Research Agenda explores how comparative law has developed significantly in this century, offering insights into different perspectives on its scope, methods and outlook. It addresses the similarities and differences between legal systems and traditions, expressing why pluralistic methodology strengthens comparative law as a discipline.

Chapters cover critical topics including decolonial comparative law, comparative law and cyberspace, and anthropological approaches to comparative law, ultimately constructing a theoretical framework that builds towards future potential research ventures. Editor Jaakko Husa brings together a strong collective of experts to illustrate how the plurality and interdisciplinary nature of the field does not necessarily lead researchers to a single, normative path.

Legal scholars seeking new avenues for comparative law studies will find this Research Agenda highly inspiring, whilst students will also benefit from the book’s leading scholarly insights.
