The Law of MERCOSUR presents both an overview and in-depth analysis of one of the world's most important and increasingly influential economic organisations. The book is comprised of two types of chapter: the first a series of first-hand analyses of the treaty by experts from countries in the MERCOSUR bloc, the second a series of discussions from other parts of the world looking at MERCOSUR as global actor of ever-increasing importance.
The book divides the analysis into three main parts: the first one containing the key institutional legal aspects of MERCOSUR, looking at its history, the general theory of economic integration, and basic aspects relating to the functioning of MERCOSUR; the second examining "specialised topics", such as the regulation of telecommunications in MERCOSUR, the environment, human rights, and the energy market (among other topics); and the third, in which the editors offer a translation of core MERCOSUR instruments, aimed at furthering understanding of the economic bloc. Original in its conception, the book covers a major gap in the English-language literature by offering a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the Law of MERCOSUR, and will become essential reading for both practitioners and academics interested not only in MERCOSUR, but in economic integration generally, international trade, and regional aspects of the phenomenon of globalization.
