Ultimately, my research will demonstrate that the Supreme Court, as a collective body of its individual justices, places ever-increasing importance and weight to international public opinion, consensus, law, treaties, and norms in deciding cases that appear to have purely domestic consequences in a manner that reflects the ever-increasing globalization of the world and world thought. Further, in analyzing models of constitutional interpretation and the ways in which they are applied in this new framework, I intend to demonstrate how such practices stray too far from appropriate constitutional interpretation and are therefore harmful to America's legal and democratic institutions.
