This inter-disciplinary volume focuses on the economic and legal challenges confronting globalisation and the evolution of the global system. "The Law and Economics of Globalisation" discusses the hot topic of globalisation from a wide set of perspectives of law, economics and international political economy. The authors shed new light on the legal, economic and institutional issues raised by globalisation, extending into areas previously considered as national issues. Using a wide set of perspectives from law, economics and political economy, they discuss how the development of the norms, institutions and reach of the global system will be influenced by the domestic and international concerns arising from the increasing integration of countries in the new century. With contributions from lawyers, economists and other experts in the field, this book will be a welcomed addition to academics, students, researchers, and policy-makers who are interested in a comprehensive volume on economic globalisation. It will also appeal to a wider audience, such as executive education courses, as well as business and law schools.
