This book has shown that for more than a century an important part of Euro-American comparative legal thought has been animated in different ways by tensions between inclusion and exclusion. This dynamic operates through antinomies between the particular and the universal, between critiques and apologies for Western domination. Based on postcolonial insights, ideas about the West and its Others have been approached as politically meaningful representations, embedded in historical and contemporary (neo-) liberal power relationships.1 The objective was to understand better the governance implica¬tions of comparative legal knowledge and the ways in which it is constructed.

The Dynamics of Inclusion and Exclusion in Comparative Legal Thought

Veronica Corcodel

Over the last two decades or so, the field of comparative law has been increasingly interested in issues of globalisation and Eurocentrism. This book inscribes itself within the debates that have arisen on these issues and aims to provide a greater understanding of the ways in which the “non-West” is constructed in Euro-American comparative law. Approaching knowledge production from an interdisciplinary and critical perspective, the book puts emphasis on the governance implications of the field.
