Principles of International Economic Law provides a comprehensive overview of the central topics in international economic law, with an emphasis on the interplay between the different economic and political interests on both the international and domestic levels. Following recent tendencies, the book sets the classic topics of international economic law, like WTO law, investment protection, commercial law and monetary law in context with aspects of human rights, environmental protection and the legitimate claims of developing countries. The book draws a concise picture of the architecture of international economic law with all its complexities, without getting lost in fragmented details. Providing a perfect introductory text to the field of international economic law, the book thoroughly analyses legal developments within their wider political, economic, or social context. Topics covered range from codes of conduct for multinational enterprises, to the human rights implications of the exploitation of natural resources. The book demonstrates the economic foundations and economic implications of legal frameworks. It puts into profile the often complex relationship between, on the one hand, international standards on liberalization and economic rationality and, on the other, state sovereignty and national preferences. It describes the new forms of economic cooperation which have developed in recent decades, such as the growing number of transnational companies in the private sector, and forms of cooperation between states such as the G8 or G20. This fully updated second edition covers new aspects and developments including the growing importance of corporate social responsibility, mega-regional-agreements like CETA, TTIP, and TPP, trade and investment related aspects of human rights law.

Implementing International Economic Law focuses on the relationship between the rules of public international law and international economic law from the point of view of dispute settlement mechanisms. It demonstrates that the practice of international adjudicative bodies such as the WTO and the ICSID went beyond merely interpreting and applying the rules of law and became international organisations as “law-makers”. This is where the sources of international law play a crucial role.

This book is on international economic law, and as such unavoidably examines international economic institutions which to some extent determine the content and character of international economic law- the IMF, the World Bank, OECD, OPEC, the Paris and London Clubs of Creditors, the G8 and G20, regional economic blocs and other economic institutions. International economic law principles like the most favored nation principle, national treatment standard, rules of origin, free trade, foreign investment, loans and sundry other issues are examined by the text showing how the interest of developed nations and international financial institutions sound through these legal issues. The book interrogates international economic law than is commonly the case with mainstream texts on the subject.
