Volume 7 of the EYIEL focusses on critical perspectives of international economic law. Recent protests against free trade agreements such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) remind us that international economic law has always been a politically and legally contested field. This volume collects critical contributions on trade, investment, financial and other subfields of international economic law from scholars who have shaped this debate for many years. The critical contributions to this volume are challenged and sometimes rejected by commentators who have been invited to be “critical with the critics”. The result is a unique collection of critical essays accompanied by alternative and competing views on some of the most fundamental topics of international economic law. In its section on regional developments, EYIEL 7 addresses recent megaregional and plurilateral trade and investment agreements and negotiations. Short insights on various aspects of the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) and its sister TTIP are complemented with comments on other developments, including the African Tripartite FTA und the negotiations on a plurilateral Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). Further sections address recent WTO and investment case law as well as recent developments concerning the IMF, UNCTAD and the WCO. The volume closes with reviews of recent books in international economic law.

This sixth volume (2015) of the European Yearbook of International Economic Law puts a particular emphasis on non-tariff barriers (NTBs) to trade and the world trade order. With the steady reduction of tariff rates since the GATT 47 came into force, focus in recent years has been on the vast and complex landscape of non-tariff barriers to trade. States as well as scholars seemingly struggle with the multitude of measures pooled under this expression as there is no single, acknowledged definition of the term, and its relation to the term “non-tariff measures” remains equally blurred. Particularly in practice and on a multilateral level, there appears to be some awkwardness when it comes to coping with NTBs since multilateral trade rules seem to be in conflict with national regulatory autonomy in the pursuit of policy objectives. In part one, this volume sheds light on the problems of non-tariff barriers to trade that arise in various fields. Part two focuses on regional integration with an emphasis on relations between East Asia and the European Union. In this regard, the authors outline the trade and investment relations between the European Union and East Asia, including Japan, Korea and Singapore. Part three offers an overview of recent institutional developments in WIPO, ICSID, WTO and WTO jurisprudence. Part four includes book reviews of recent works in the field of international economic law, and part five introduces a new section on publications in the field of international economic law that were released in 2013 and 2014.

English summary: Today, the importance of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is recognized nearly universally. But when it comes to inbound FDI in the form of cross-border mergers and acquisitions, states see their interests affected. Whereas in some countries the preference of domestic over foreign ownership is restricted to the field of national security, some governments seem to discover a general threat attributed to takeovers from abroad. Accordingly, an increasing number of states have installed control mechanisms which aim at screening cross-border takeovers as to their compatibility with national interests. This inquiry comprises a legal and an economic analysis: First, an inventory of national policy instruments is made. Second, it is examined to what extent national control instruments are compatible with international economic law including Regional Integration Agreements. Third, the economic goals of government interference are identified and confronted with the actual motivation behind state interference. The paper concludes with some policy proposals. German description: Immer mehr Staaten gehen dazu uber, die Ubernahme heimischer Unternehmen durch auslandische Investoren einer besonderen Kontrolle zu unterstellen. Dies erscheint legitim, solange die staatliche Aufsicht den Schutz der nationalen Sicherheit bezweckt. Nicht selten gehen Regierungseingriffe aber hieruber hinaus und schreiben sich in einen Gesamtzusammenhang ein, den man in Frankreich als aOkonomischen Patriotismus bezeichnet hat. Staatliche Eingriffe mussen die rechtlichen Vorgaben respektieren, die im Recht der Europaischen Union sehr viel strenger als im Internationalen Wirtschaftsrecht sind. Die entscheidende rechtspolitische Frage ist wirtschaftlicher Natur: Befordert es das Wohlergehen eines Landes, wenn man inlandische Unternehmen vor Ubernahmen aus dem Ausland schutzt? Erhebliche Zweifel sind angebracht. Die unbestreitbaren Probleme, wie z.B. mangelnde Reziprozitat oder Bedenken gegenuber auslandischen Staatsfonds, sollten durch Verbesserungen des internationalen Regelwerks kuriert werden.
