US political scientists and legal scholars investigate transnational influences on the US Supreme Court; the rise of transnational criminal jurisdiction; transnational influences on rights, citizenship, and democratization; and transnational law and the boundaries of sovereignty. Their topics include an empirical study of foreign law in American jurisprudence, evaluating the International Criminal Court and the apprehension of indictees, the role of international actors in promoting rule of law in Uganda, and how the International Law of Human Rights changed the Argentine Supreme Court.
