Agenda post-2015 e mutamento giuridico nel contesto della globalizzazione
Abstract: In September 2015 the General Assembly of the United Nations will adopt a new sustainable development agenda which will substitute the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). One of the essential elements of the new agenda is the promotion of justice and the new targets are likely to focus on various legal issues such as the attainment of the rule of law and the formalization of property rights.
The MDGs experience shows how indicators are being used by international and transnational actors as tools for evaluating and promoting a variety of legal reforms in developing and transitional countries and confirms that, in the context of globalization, identifying goals and measurable targets seems to be the best way to generate legal change.
The present article will analyze these new trends in development policies from a legal comparative perspective, discussing the role of experts and indicators in global governance.
