Prolegomena to the Development of Constitutional Consumocratic Law
Martin Dumas, Février 2015
On the basis of an in-depth case study of a market-driven governance scheme – Rugmark (now GoodWeave), designed to fight child labour in South Asia – I will identify and describe a number of characteristics peculiar to the consumocratic system of regulation, before analysing the delicate role of transparency modulation within it. A non-paternalist, pragmatic analysis of transparency as a regulatory tool, it will be shown, leads to recognising the utility of constitutionalising transnational consumocratic activity on original foundations, before envisaging the development of increasingly transparent and efficient tools.
