This major new work of constitutional theory looks at the relationship between constitutions and markets, and how it affects our understanding of citizenship and rights. It criticises the way in which thinking about markets at the national, European and global levels has deformed the democratic understanding of the constitution.

The Redress of Law Summary

The Redress of Law: Globalisation, Constitutionalism and Market Capture by Emilios Christodoulidis (University of Glasgow)

From a legal-philosophical point of view, The Redress of Law presents a critical analysis of a number of related doctrinal fields: constitutional, labour and EU Law. Focusing on the organisation and protection of work, this book asks what it means to protect work as an essential aspect of human (individual and collective) flourishing. This is an ambitious and highly sophisticated intervention in contemporary academic and political debates around a set of critically important questions connected to processes of globalisation and market integration. The author redefines the nature of legal and political thought in an age in which market rationality has exceeded its classic domain and has come to pervade the organization of social and political life. This restatement of critical legal theory is intended to defend the concept of constitutionalism and suggest new ways to deploy the law strategically.
