, development, deployment and integration across social fields. Among these are stakeholder groups (such as regulators, civil society representatives, designers, data scientists, tech entrepreneurs and experts in cybersecurity, intellectual property and data-protection law) with differing priorities, values and skillsets, and consequently different approaches to datafication. In the context of fashion, Wissinger (2018: 779) notes that her interviews reveal that ‘a laissez

Moreover, the rule of the normative law is curtailed in favour of decisionism (arbitrary exercise of authority by state officials or military officers). This discussion provides the potential to widening the theoretical perspective implied by Jiryis’ thesis of domination by law and can be

The political deal that followed could have produced a formal misbalance of legal obligations and inequality in political statuses. However, if friendship is ascribed to the domain of nature as a universal regulator of social relations, then it must be removed from the domain of particular political situations and the sphere of limited legal contracts, whether reciprocal or not. The next collateral effect of the conceptual change

chapter surveys great works in the history of international law and moral political philosophy, and shows how friendship became the exclusive feature of the natural condition, and why the power of normative prescription for friendly conduct was derived from particular interpretations of nature and human sociability. Having been submitted to the authority of natural law and presented as a moral regulator for an emerging society of sovereign states, the concept of friendship, this chapter postulates, gradually disappeared from the range of conventional legal statements on
