■Research summary
Research on the Multi-layered Norms Formed by Self-regulations of Non-state Actors

 In the global world, a society called “the global civil society” is being formed. In the global civil society, not only states and inter-state organizations but also private actors such as multinational enterprises, non-governmental organizations and international expert groups currently play a very important role. Especially, in the fields of economy, teleinformatics, health care and advanced science and technology, in which public legalization has not been advanced, private international associations make voluntary rules on their own initiative.
These self-regulations, known as “global law,” formed voluntarily by the free activities of private actors, are expected to play an effective role in the global governance, and have attracted the attention of practitioners and scholars in International Relations and International Law. However, global law has some problems. It is formed by private actors, so its legitimacy is doubtful because it lacks democratic procedures and it tends to be purpose-built.
The aim of my research are to examine how the “legitimacy” of self-regulations by private actors can be assured in the global civil society and how the self-regulation affects international law or other existing norms and how it cooperate with them to govern transnational issues.

■Message from researcher
Research field
 I specialize in International Relations, History of Political Thought, Political Science, and Normative Science. My research focuses on the social theories’ analysis of Inter-state relations, International Society and Global Civil Society. In particular, I am currently working on the research to clarify the system of transnational governance and its norms, which are established by not only states or international organizations but also non-state actors that regulate themselves voluntarily.
