The Judicial Politics of Economic Integration analyses development strategies and regional integration in the Andean Community (the former Andean Pact) of Latin American nations; focusing on the establishment of the Andean Court of Justice and its case law, as well as the intellectual underpinnings that made such an impressive reform possible. The court is a transplant taken from the European integration process, and it materializes the visions, expectations, and dreams of the transnational development movement of "integration through law".

The book discusses the outcomes of the Court in the light of the debates about judicial reform in the process of development and regional integration. Although it clearly confirms several earlier claims that "one size does not fit all", it provides new evidence that legal reform is not futile. On the contrary, the book argues, if driven reflexively it can be a considerable contribution to the creation of capabilities and improvement of a democratic rule of law.
