Abstract

How to study global health law, how to account for the nation state as a site for making and transforming international norms. This paper argues that these goals can be advanced by attending to how transnational legal processes are played out within fora at diverse sites, national as much as international, such as legislatures and courts. These processes are messy, often marked by contestation not only of actors, but also legal norms and systems. They are best studied through case studies which take seriously concrete legal and cultural particularities. In exploring the potential of this approach, I focus here on a recent ‘telling moment’ from Kenya when the interaction of various legal forms put apparently unjustifiable aspects of a major cross-border research collaboration beyond the reach of domestic law.
