This volume examines the range of Non-Trade Concerns (NTCs) that may conflict with international economic rules and proposes ways to protect them within international law and international economic law.
Focusing on China, the book shows the current trends of Chinese law and policy towards international standards. The authors argue that China can play a leading role in this context: not only has China adopted several reforms and new regulations to address NTCs; but it has started to play a very relevant role in international negotiations on NTCs such as climate change, energy and culture, among others.
While China is still considered a developing country, in particular from the non-trade concerns point of view, it promises to be a key actor in international law in general, and, more specifically, in international economic law in this respect.
This volume assesses, taking into consideration its special context, China's behaviour internally and externally to understand its role and influence in shaping NTCs in the context of International Economic Law.
