Collaboration has emerged as a panacea for the ills facing societies around the world, and also as a methodology for comparative legal scholars who seek to understand the same. Yet the rise of collaboration as a political and scholarly method masks the substantive and practical challenges of creating productive and meaningful transnational and transcultural relationships. This chapter considers some of these challenges, and also some of the possibilities that are inherent in collaboration, through the example of a recent experiment with Meridian 180, a global engagement platform for policy experimentation founded in 2011.
