Program Description:
Law and politics are embedded in space and its many territorial categories. However, the spatial dimensions of law and politics are not always made explicit in the respective disciplinary traditions. Jurisdiction, sovereignty, non-intervention, even human rights – all these terms are relevant for contemporary debates and would be difficult to operationalize without a clear understanding of their spatial dimension. In the past decades, the importance of territoriality has also been called into question, for instance through processes associated with digitalization and globalization. And yet, the importance of territory persists. At the intersection of legal studies and political science, this course explores key issues and concepts pertaining to space and territoriality with a view to a critical re-assessment of their contemporary importance. The last section of the course will be offered in cooperation between the Politics Section of Bard College Berlin (Professor Boris Vormann) and the Department of Law at Freie Universität Berlin (Professor Helmut Philipp Aust).
