Benjamin Lemoine is investigating empirical sites where the scope of powers (and ability to act) of sovereign states are explicitly at stake and embedded in courtrooms and different types of jurisdictions. The aim is to grasp sovereignty in the making, as embodied throughout the settlement of private and public legal infrastructures.
