Abstract and Keywords

In studying how public health laws operate, many scholars and practitioners frequently put the the state in the center. This chapter argues that we must look beyond the state. By utilizing a transnational law frame, scholars and practitioners are able to see the many international, regional, and domestic actors that shape national lawmaking on health. A transnational legal analysis allows for the assessment of the factors, including the broader sociopolitical and economic forces that inform lawmaking and domestic actors as they are subject to intersecting layers of governance emanating from national, international, and transnational governance.

Keywords: public health, transnational governance, abortion, AIDS, public health law
