About Reconceptualising the Rule of Law in Global Governance, Resources, Investment and Trade

The relevance and importance of the rule of law to the international legal order cannot be doubted and was recently reaffirmed by the Declaration of the High-level Meeting of the General Assembly on the Rule of Law at the National and International Level's solemn commitment to it on behalf of states and international organizations. In this edited collection, leading scholars and practitioners from the fields of global governance, resources, investment and trade examine how the commitment to the rule of law manifests itself in the respective fields. The book looks at cutting-edge issues within each field and examines the questions arising from the interplay between them. With a clear three-part structure, it explores each area in detail and addresses contemporary challenges while trying to assure a commitment to the rule of law. The contributions also consider how the rule of law has been or should be reconceptualised. Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, the book will appeal to international lawyers from across the spectrum, including practitioners in the field of international investment and trade law.

Reviews

“The thirty articles explore the concept of the rule of law taking a multi-disciplinary approach and their collection provides an important contribution to a better understanding of various forms of the rule of law in international law. Reconceptualising the Rule of Law in Global Governance, Resources, Investment and Trade is thus a much recommended and stimulating reading for those interested in contemporary international law and its different fields.” –  Ondrej Svoboda, Espaço Jurídico Journal of Law
