Today's trade regime is under pressure. Increasing societal discontent with globalization and increasing disregard for its rules when taking recourse to protectionist measures threaten its legitimacy and effectiveness. The authors explore systemic challenges to the trade regime, inter alia related to development, migration, inequality, the digital economy and climate change.

The Shifting Landscape of Global Trade Governance allows the readers in times of change to put current developments into context and offers an understanding of the different dynamics defining today's regulation of the global economy. Chapters authored by leading researchers from different disciplines - law, political science and economics - address the challenges of the global economic system and share novel outlooks, both theory- and data-based, for the future.
