‘This book is an absolute gem. It takes the term international economic law seriously. Unlike any other book that I know of, this Handbook transcends the traditional, narrow focus on public trade law to include private commercial law, investment, competition, tax, IP, finance and international environmental law. In 14 comprehensive chapters, the law, policy and economics of 14 different issue areas are covered. Written by absolute leaders in their field, the Handbook offers an entry point for newcomers in each of those subject matters, yet does so at a level of sophistication, insight and comprehensiveness that should equally delight and enrich specialists.’
– Joost Pauwelyn, Duke University School of Law, US

Further information

This major work consists of carefully commissioned original and incisive contributions from leading scholars in the field of international economic law. Covering a full range of topics, the Handbook provides an accessible treatment of the law in each area, as well as a thoughtful synthesis and discussion of related public policy issues from a broadly social science perspective.

The book includes extensive coverage of international trade issues, which are generally considered to be the core of international economic law, and focuses on such topics as barriers to trade, dispute settlement, trade and services, regionalism and remedies. It also goes significantly beyond these to look at related areas of the discipline; international investment, including discussion of regulatory issues and private rights of action; intellectual property issues relating to trade; commercial law; legal and economic aspects of international tax and international finance; the closely related areas of trade and international competition policy; international environmental law; and international telecommunications.

Providing in many cases a unique interdisciplinary blend of analysis, the Handbook offers a cutting edge approach to international economic law, and an authoritative source of reference for scholars, graduate students and policymakers.
