Globalization and democratization are creating new types of social relations, and thus new dimensions of state power. This in turn creates new rights and obligations, or extensions of existing ones, which can be exploited by cause lawyers in pursuance of their various ideological and redistributive projects. This chapter explains the general processes at work, and summarizes the individual case studies that comprise the remaining chapters of the book.

Keywords:   cause lawyers, democratization, globalization
