Product Description

The dynamics of International Economic Relations continuously give rise to demands for new regulatorysolutions. In this context, International Law historically demonstrated an impressive capacity to adapt to changing circumstances and corresponding regulatory needs. However, the characteristics of the current context are that it is almost self-evidently global and thereby denationalises existing state-oriented meanings and systems. In this studythe author sets out to investigate the interaction between new emerging regulatory arrangements in International Economic Relations (the Kyoto Protocol, the Global Compact and the Fair Labor Association) and the existingstate-oriented body of International Law.
