The research will concentrate on the legal-theoretical aspect of the ongoing transformations; but it will make use the result offered by philosophy, economics, social theory, gender studies and cultural studies. It will be focalized mainly: 1)the chaotical multiplication of legal actors and legal sources with the overlapping of public and private powers; the co-originality of subjectivity and basic rights; 2)the crisis of democracy and representation, the increased role of market economy in law-making and judicial decision, the fading of state sovereignty; 3)the transformations of rights, the weakening of their prescriptiveness in trans-national law, chances and risks of the universalism, the “specifying” of subjects
