Advanced Introduction to International Trade Law

About the eBook

Written by two leading scholars with 60 years of collective experience in the area, this insightful and updated second edition provides a clear and concise introduction to the fundamental components of international trade law, presenting the basic structure and principles of this complex area of law, alongside elucidation of specific GATT and WTO legal rules and institutions.

Key features include:

a nuanced yet highly readable summary of the area
placement of trade law into historical, political and economic contexts, including new analysis of populist critiques
references to the most recent cases, decisions, treaty negotiation developments and economic and legal scholarship
analysis of new areas including digital trade, migration and security exceptions to alert students to developments in international trade law
links and connections between different areas of trade law to provide students with an integrated overview of the topic.

Interdisciplinary in nature, this second edition will be an indispensable guide for students in law, economics, political science and international relations. Comprehensive and accessible, it will be essential reading for non-specialist scholars and policy advisors seeking to further their understanding of international trade law.

'This Advanced Introduction provides an excellent succinct yet accurate summary of the international trade rules applicable, inter alia, to trade in goods, services, intellectual property, and investment. It also explores international standards, social issues such as development, environment, labour, human rights, and it addresses the institutional framework and the future of the world trading system. As an experienced practitioner in this field, I highly recommend this book to government officials, business people, and students who will all get a clear interdisciplinary tour d'horizon in the field of international trade.'
- Gabrielle Marceau, University of Geneva, Switzerland and Senior Counsellor at the WTO
