This series features leading academics and practitioners who will engage in critical thinking across the core topics of public international law to conceptualize practical measures and mechanisms to convert and transform normative foundations of justice into procedural and substantive realities for today’s world.
The system of international economic law has been scrutinized for its relationship with colonial power structures, and criticized for perpetuating imbalances of rights, including between States and between States and foreign investors. In an effort to re-balance the scales, some States have responded by withdrawing from bilateral and multilateral agreements or by rethinking their role in international trade. This session will explore the historic roots of international economic law, the various critiques that have been made in relation to this branch of international law, and discuss proposals and practical solutions to reconceptualize its practice.
