Foundations of Global Administrative Law: Governance, Regulatory Power beyond the State and Administrative Legality Professor Paul Craig Professor of English Law, St John's College, Oxford The discussion in this lecture begins with an overview of the importance of regulatory power beyond the state, revealing the extent to which it is exercised by a plethora of bodies operating internationally and transnationally, and the concerns that this has generated in terms of administrative legality broadly conceived. The lecture then addresses four contentious foundational issues: the way in which we conceptualize involvement in this area, whether as global administrative law, or in some other manner; the sense in which the norms can be regarded as 'law'; the fears that this body of law might undermine a desired plurality of value; and the extent to which global and national administrative law should be regarded as resting on distinct foundations.

Sounds are filling space, carving their own paths, at times colliding with others, at times harmonic, creating synergy but always fleeting. The source? The composers, each with their own sound world, invisible but audible in the interpretation of MVG. The compositions are stories, portraits, sketches, fabrics of sound waves. MVG invites you to join her in her musical universe and incites the curious to partake in a search for beauty, development, and innovation. MVG presents music by (former) SARC composers alongside works from her latest program ‘SS:CAn - yeSS we CAnada!’ in which Dutch and Canadian composers explore the world of bass clarinet and electronics.
