The Encyclopedia represents the definitive reference work in the field of International Economic Law broadly defined, going beyond trade and investment law. It comprises nearly 200 entries from leading scholarly and practitioner experts explaining the institutions, terms, and concepts that have shaped the law of international trade, investment, finance, and tax.
Structured thematically rather than alphabetically, the Encyclopedia is a turn-to resource, illuminating the functioning of the international system, including how the individual components interact, both with each other and with other legal systems.
Each entry provides a concise overview of the particular topic or institution. The substantive entries offer brief contextual analysis of each topic, followed by extensive further reading indications to guide the user to further research. Entries on the individual institutions and organisations provide a summary of the key facts followed by an overview of the history, structure, goals and key principles, procedures and methods of each one.
Not only is the Encyclopedia an essential reference work for all those working and studying in international economic law, but it plays an important role in surveying, mapping and defining the field, highlighting the value of taking a broad and holistic approach.
