The Theory and Practice of International Economic Law

This book is on international economic law, and as such unavoidably examines international economic institutions which to some extent determine the content and character of international economic law- the IMF, the World Bank, OECD, OPEC, the Paris and London Clubs of Creditors, the G8 and G20, regional economic blocs and other economic institutions. International economic law principles like the Most Favoured Nation principle, National Treatment Standard, rules of origin, free trade, foreign investment, loans and sundry other issues are examined by the text showing how the interest of developed nations and financial institutions sound through these legal issues. The book interrogates international economic law than is commonly the case with mainstream texts on the subject.
