Course Description

International Economic Law is an increasingly popular discipline deserving the focus of a degree programme in its own right. On an international level the separation of economic development from political and civil rights, upon which policy-making in the World Bank and the IMF is largely based, is coming under increasing criticism. World Trade Organisation (WTO) law has developed into a highly contentious set of institutions, rules and principles delineating ?acceptable? forms of economic regulation from ?unacceptable? ones. This degree aims to give participants an overview of these developments and provide a thorough grounding in the institutions, rules and principles of international economic policy-making. Students will gain a theoretical and practical understanding of the main legal issues arising from the globalisation of the world economy and will examine issues relating to the governance of the world economy and those arising from various types of international business activity. Students will also gain a theoretical and practical understanding of the means by which disputes are approached and resolved at the international level.
