This well-documented book comprises a stellar cast of European and American authors delivering an overview of cutting edge issues in the areas of trade and competition law, arising in the EU and beyond.

Written from an international perspective, hotly debated topics include: challenges in international monetary law; the EU and free trade; treaty interpretation; WTO dispute settlement; the domestic law effect of the WTO in the EU and public and private enforcement of competition law, amongst many others.

Set out to become a key work of reference for many legal practitioners, policy makers and academics alike across the globe, Trade and Competition Law in the EU and Beyond uniquely tackles the two very different, yet related, topics of trade and competition law.
‘Trade and Competition Law in the EU and Beyond is a remarkable collection of scholarly contributions of relevance to academics, practitioners and officials interested not only in rules governing international trade and competition, but also in international economic law in general. The authorship is diversified, representing views of commentators from many countries, and the focus of individual contributions is not only on law de lege lata but also de lege ferenda greatly adding to the volume’s value and its input in the ongoing academic discourse.’
– Marek Martyniszyn, International Trade Law and Regulation
