This joint book launch will bring in conversation Dr Will Bateman and Dr Ntina Tzouvala over their recently published books (see here and here). Engaging with different fields and methodologies, both monographs raise questions concerning legal authority, capitalism and the global political economy. This event will introduce both works, situate them within the broader revival of interest in law and political economy, and explore possibilities for further dialogue and research across legal fields.
