Addressing the important idea of the legal subjectivity of a range of putative new rights-claimants,the author argues that globalisation needs to form the matrix within which debates concerning the rights of various new kinds of claimant is located, and that it is essential not to lose sight of the multitudes of persons, animals and living systems constructed as, in an important sense, 'outsiders' in relation to the globalising power structures of our age. The question of how we now construct a juridical order that is responsive, inclusive and possesses the plasticity to account for new and complex kinds of rights-holders needs to be rendered inseparable from the search for full juridical responsiveness to the visceral realities facing currently (and traditionally) excluded subjectivities.
