Political Economy of International Law: A Convenient Alliance for the Study of Compliance?
Barbara DELCOURT in Alberta FABBRICOTTI (ed.), The Political Economy of international Law - A European Perspective, Cheltenham,UK - Northampton, USA, Edward Elgar Publishing
Set in the context of growing interdisciplinarity in legal research, The Political Economy of International Law: A European Perspective provides a much-needed systematic and coherent review of the interactions between political economy and international law.
The contributors reflect the need felt by international lawyers to open their traditional frontiers to insights from other disciplines – and political economy in particular. The methodological approach of the book is to take the traditional list of topics for a general treatise of international law, and to systematically incorporate insights from political economy to each.
Students and scholars of political economy and international law will find the topics discussed to be of great interest to their work. This book will also provide valuable insights for economists, lawyers, and policy makers.
