The report examines to what extent and how German administrative law and or­ganisation have been changed by globalisation and the increasing reach and depth of global governance. A first chapter analyses the legal discourse in Germany and finds that international (more than global) administrative law has become a major topic. It points to three different strands in German scholarship and highlights es­pecially the proposal to conceptualize global governance as an exercise of interna­tional public authority. In a second step, the report examines three specific fields of law (environment, health and financial services) and analyses how national ad­min­is­trative and legal structures have been influenced by globalisation. In particu­lar, it enquires what instruments of standard-setting and forms of implementation have been used. Finally, the report acknowledges that globalization has had a tremen­dous effect on German administrative law and describes seven instrumental and substantive modes of the effect of international rules on the German legal or­der.
