By its very nature, the study of international economic regulation is interdisciplinary. The desirability, effectiveness and impact of regulatory options can only be assessed within the broad context in which those economic activities take place. This collection, therefore, contains contributions from economists, international relations specialists, sociologists and medical academics, as well as those employed outside the academy. The cross-section of subjects includes: constitutional rights; intellectual property; public services; environment law; and labour rights.;The volume aims to inform the debate and reflection on the prospects for, and complexities of, international economic regulation.
