Based on students’ suggestions, the class will carve out a few key issues and current issues from the very broad topic International Economic Law. These issues will build on the initial discussions of the definitions of the words in the course title - international, economicand law - . Also, the issues will fall within the scope of the class’s definition of international economic law.
From the many topics that were identified by you, the course will cover: international trade, international monetary law, sovereignty, foreign investment, and social issues. For each sub-topic, the readings, assignments and discussions should include consideration of the relevant ❶ideas at creation, ❷rules, ❸institutions (governmental and non-governmental) and ❹dispute settlement within that sub-topic. Many of the assignments and readings will be designed to familiarize you with key terms and legal authorities.
International trade policy and law are rules that implement economic concepts. We will consider those concepts, the resulting legal and institutional system and questions being raised about them, especially by developing and emerging market countries. While China is a member of the World Trade Organization, several other WTO members are beginning to question whether China will play by the trade rules that have been developed.
