Call for Submissions: TL&D Special Issue on "India and the World Economic Order"

The journal Trade, Law and Development has issued a call for submissions for its upcoming special issue on "India and the World Economic Order." Here's the call:

Founded in 2009, the philosophy of Trade, Law and Development has been to generate and sustain a constructive and democratic debate on emergent issues in International Economic Law and to serve as a forum for the discussion and distribution of ideas - with a specific focus on the development perspective of International Economic Law. In keeping with these ideals and to commemorate the fifth year of the Journal, the Board of Editors is pleased to announce India and the World Economic Order as the theme for its next Special Issue (Vol. V, No. 1, Summer 2013).

More than two decades ago, India abandoned its quasi-isolationist position and began implementing radical policy changes in order to fully integrate itself into the world trading system. Through the years India has attempted to strike a balance between its welfare agenda and the compliance necessitated by the prevalent international legal order, by shifting from a quasi-isolationist position in the world economic order, to achieving a considerable amount of trade and investment activity.

Inspired by the role of India in the continuing evolution of the world economic system, the Board of Editors invites original, unpublished submissions for the Special Issue on India and the World Economic Order for publication as 'Articles', 'Notes', 'Comments' and/or 'Book Reviews'. Submissions can deal with any aspect of India's role or policies in the world economic order.

Manuscripts may be sumbitted via e-mail, ExpressO or the TL&D website. For further information and submission guidelines, please visit the journal website or contact us at editors[at]

Last date for Submissions: February 15, 2013.
