Matthias Herdegen 

  • A comprehensive yet concise introduction to international economic law, covering the WTO, investment law, and international monetary law
  • Highlights common principles underlying various aspects of international economic law 
  • Assesses the growing importance and impact of other areas of law and policy on international economic law, such as human rights and environmental protection 
  • Takes into account the increased relevance of the principles of good governance, the role of transnational corporations in international economic relations, and new forms of governmental cooperation such as the G20 
Principles of International Economic Law gives 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. The book sets the classic topics of international economic law, WTO law, investment protection, commercial law, and monetary law in context with human rights, environmental protection, good governance, and the needs of developing countries. It thus provides a concise picture of the current architecture of international economic law. 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. 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. Readership: Students of international economic law, including WTO and international investment law; scholars and newly qualified legal professionals working in international economic law
