About this product
- Description'Bretton Woods' has become shorthand for the post-war international financial and ecomic framework. Mindful of the historic 1944 conference and its legacy for the discipline of international ecomic law, the American Society of International Law's International Ecomic Law Group (IELG) chose Bretton Woods as the venue for a landmark scholarly meeting. In November of 2006, a diverse group of academics and practitioners gathered to reflect on the past, present and future of international ecomic law. They sought to survey and advance three particular areas of endeavour: research and scholarship, teaching, and practice/service. This book represents an edited collection of some of the exceptional papers presented at the conference including contributions from Andreas Lowenfeld, Joel Trachtman, Amelia Porges and Andrew Lang. The volume is organised into three parts, each covering one of the three pillars in the discipline of international ecomic law: research and scholarship; teaching; and practice/service. It begins with an assessment of the state and future of research in the field, including chapters on questions such as: what is international ecomic law? Is it a branch of international law or of ecomic law? How do fields outside of law, such as ecomics and international relations, relate to international ecomic law? How do research methodologies influence policy outcomes? The second part examines the state and future of teaching in the subject. Chapters cover topics such as: how and where is international ecomic law taught? Is the training provided in the law schools suitable for future academics, government officials, or practitioners? How might regional shortcomings in academic resources be addressed? The final part of the book focuses on the state and future of international ecomic law practice in the Bretton Woods era, including institutional reform. The contributors consider issues such as: what is the nature of international ecomic law practice? What are the needs of practitioners in government, private practice, international and n-governmental organisations? Finally, how have the Bretton Woods institutions adapted to these and other challenges-and how might they better respond in the future? International Ecomic Law: The State and Future of the Discipline will be of interest to lawyers, ecomists and other professionals throughout the world-whether in the private, public, academic or n-governmental sectors-seeking both fresh insights and expert assessments in this expanding field. Indeed, the book itself promises to play a role in the next phase of the development of international ecomic law.
