The World Trade Organisation and the turbulent legacy of international economic law-making in the long Twentieth Century

By Fiona Macmillan

Abstract

Book synopsis: This new work explores the impact of globalization on the international legal system, with special reference to developing countries. The onset of the current process of globalization brought about momentous changes to the rules and processes of international law. These changes, studied within this book, include a radical expansion of the scope of international economic law; an increase in the power of international economic organizations; a new, more informal approach to law-making; a greater reliance on judicial and arbitral mechanisms for conflict resolution and a proliferation of international human rights instruments, many of which have a direct bearing on international economic relations. The contributors to this book are prominent experts in the fields of international law and international political economy, from developing and developed countries
