Cottier & Nadakavukaren Schefer: Elgar Encyclopedia of International Economic Law

Thomas Cottier (World Trade Institute) & Krista Nadakavukaren Schefer (Swiss Institute of Comparative Law; World Trade Institute) have published Elgar Encyclopedia of International Economic Law (Edward Elgar Publishing 2017). Here's the abstract:
The Encyclopedia is the definitive reference work on international economic law. This comprehensive resource helps redefine the field by presenting international economic law in its broadest, real-world context. Organized thematically rather than alphabetically, the subject is split into four principal sections: the foundations and architecture of international economic law, its principles, its main regulatory areas, and the future challenges that it faces. Comprising over 250 entries written by leading scholars and practitioners, traditional international economic law subject matter is supplemented by coverage of newly developing areas. Thus, the concepts and rules of trade, investment, finance and international tax law are found alongside entries discussing the relationship of international economic law with environmental protection, social standards, development, and human rights.
