About this book

This volume considers novel emerging issues in international economic law, as well as new methodological approaches to more familiar topics. It brings together a diverse range of contributors from five continents, who share invaluable perspectives on a wide range of issues in international economic governance.

In doing so, this volume delves deeply into some of the most challenging emerging areas in international economic law, approaching them from an interdisciplinary perspective that brings together legal, economic, and political analysis. Intended for academics and practitioners at all stages of their careers, many of the areas considered in this volume are either entirely new or are being revisited after periods of dormancy. It is our hope that these contributions will yield fresh insights into these new and “classic” areas of IEL.

We consider diversity and inclusivity foundational values in IEL. The wealth of ideas showcased in this volume present us with an opportunity to appreciate different facets of originality and rigour in legal academic writing, further highlighting the range of methodological and stylistic preferences of emerging legal scholars in IEL. In June 2022, forty emerging international economic law scholars were selected to present their papers at PEPA/SIEL, where they received feedback from senior members of the SIEL community and beyond. The discussions were lively, stimulating and enriching, leading the editors of this volume to propose putting a selection of the papers into a published book.
