Jonathan White →
Key point 1
Today’s transnational institutions and legal orders may give rise to new forms of emergency rule.
Key point 2
One example of the exceptionalism of supranational institutions was the European troika; many were concerned that the troika was overriding the rights of EU States.
Key point 3
Emergency politics is commonly intended to show strength, but there is often weakness behind exceptionalism.
