Whatever its value in relation to past examples of legal transfer there is a real risk that continuing to use (and argue about) the significance and possibility of “legal transplants” (Watson, 1974; Wise, 1990; Waelde and Gunderson, 1994; Ewald, 1995) may distract us from the need to search for new metaphors and models which may be more appropriate to present-day forms of legal adaptation (see Teubner, 1997b; Nelken, 2001). Should we still be looking for “advanced” and “follower” countries (Feldman, 1997)?

It is remarkable in fact how such forms of impersonal trust can spread without the backing of a reliable legal system similar to those in America. 23 The “local state” may be weakened by some legal developments, but law may also be conditioned by nationalism, even when this is explicitly discouraged (Mertus, 1999).

Influential actors are likely to be members of elite groups or other important political and social networks (Sklair, 1991), but the number of those potentially affected by such change embraces a much wider number of organised or unorganised ordinary citizens.
