Edited by noted scholar and practitioner, Dr. Todd Weiler, this TDM Special Issue addresses the intersections that exist between investment treaty law and international trade law.
Over a dozen thought provoking articles, comments and book reviews have been assembled for this Special Issue, from both practitioners and academics. Issues addressed include: the use and relative applicability of substantive trade law concepts investor-state arbitration; an in-depth examination and analysis of the TRIMs Agreement; a comparison between most favored nation and national treatment clauses in WTO law and in international investment law, and research into the substantive and procedural standards offered by investment treaties and WTO agreements. The contents of this Special Issue are sure to provide the reader with a timely variety of perspectives on two significant member communities in the burgeoning practice of international economic law.
The publisher would especially like to thank Dr. Walid Ben Hamida, Heather Bray and Devin Bray for their ineluctable assistance in preparing this Special Issue.
