CARRILLO SANTARELLI, Nicolás. The Protection of Global Legal Goods. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2013, vol.13, pp.405-450. ISSN 1870-4654.

Global legal goods are the interests and values protected in a global legal space of interaction where multiple legal systems and actors interact, and constitute a lowest common denominator that can both constitute the basis of legal actions that protect and promote them and inspire and command such action. They are embedded in a multi-level system of coordination, where international, domestic and non-state actions complement each other in an arranged fashion. Their recognition is essential in a globalized world where isolated actions are unable to deal with current challenges to legal interests, taking into account that each society demands a proper legal framework and that authorities can protect extraneous and shared legal goods.

Keywords : global legal goods; global legal space; non-state actors; multi-level normative frameworks; globalization.
