The contributions collected in this Special Issue are the outcome of a colloquium on "Global Human Rights Law and the Boundaries of Statehood" held at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) in South Africa in March 2015. The colloquium is the first in a series of topics to be addressed within the STIAS research project, "Boundaries and Legal Authority in a Global Context," coordinated by Hans Lindahl and Louise du Toit. We would like to express our gratitude to STIAS for the funding and logistics of the colloquium. Our particular thanks are due to the director of STIAS, Hendrik Geyer, for hosting our colloquium, and to Nel-Mari Loock and Maria Mouton for their friendly and diligent assistance with its organization. Daniel Augenstein has conducted much of the work in preparation of this Special Issue during a research leave at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin funded by the German Humboldt Foundation, whose support he gratefully acknowledges. Last but not least, we would like to thank the editors of the Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies for their commitment and editorial assistance in seeing this collective research project through to publication.
