Abstract:

"International Economic Law with a Human Face addresses a vital question in contemporary international economic relations: the design, structure and content of the legal and institutional framework within an increasingly globalized civil society and market economy. It is based on the belief that liberalized global markets cannot be expected to provide the public goods required to secure the acquis communautaire for human rights worldwide, let alone to extend those rights to peoples hitherto deprived of their benefits." "Scholars from Europe, America, Asia and Australia combine 'international social critique' of state practice with ideas for 'social engineering', offering critical legal analysis and ideas about policy options for standard setting to induce legal change and development."--BOOK JACKET.
