(p.267) 13 Administration without Sovereignty
The Twilight of Constitutionalism?

Alexander Somek (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter draws out some of the issues raised by the ostensibly modest ambition of the Global Administrative Law (GAL) project. It criticizes the claim that the project amounts only to a redescription of modern international law under the dominating influence of administrative rationality. Rather, it marks the triumph of administrative rationality over the legal form itself. The world that GAL describes is not that of the demise of the state under globalising pressures; it marks instead the triumph of the state (the state as administration) over both politics and law.

Keywords:   global administrative law project, GAL, international law, administrative rationality
