2 - 4 weeks availability


The 1999 WTO conference in Seattle has shown that the future legal framework of international economic governance must also deal with issues not primarily economic: Human rights, labour-, development-, and environmental-issues and the claim for more transparency began to affect the legitimacy of international economic law to a great extent. The volume is an attempt to take stock of these new challenges for international economic law. At the same time it documents ECSA Austria's conference of December, 2001, where international experts have discussed the new tasks as well as possible developments of international economic law.
