by admin on June 10, 2015

Hans Lindahl
Hans Lindahl is professor of legal philosophy at Tilburg Unniversity. He has a law degree from the Universidad Javeriana in Colombia. He also obtained an MA in philosophy (Javeriana) and a PhD in philosophy (Higher Institute of Philosophy, KU Leuven). His current research is primarily oriented to issues germane to globalization processes, such as the concept of legal order in a global setting; a politics of boundary-setting alternative to both cosmopolitanism and communitarianism; transformations of legal authority and political representation; collective identity and difference. In dealing with these topics Lindahl draws on (post-)phenomenology and theories of collective action of analytical provenance, while also seeking to do justice to the nitty-gritty of positive law. Lindahl is also research fellow of the Stellenbosch Institute of Advanced Study in South Africa. For further information visit: www.hanslindahl.org.
