The importance of the rule of law to the international legal order has always been clear and was most recently confirmed with the Declaration of the High-level Meeting of the General Assembly on the Rule of Law at the National and International Level's solemn commitment to it on behalf of states and international organizations.

In this edited collection, leading scholars and practitioners from the fields of global governance, resources, investment and trade examines how exactly this commitment to the rule of law manifests itself. Looking at cutting edge issues within each field, it also examines those questions that arise from the interplay between the different fields.

With a clear three part structure, it explores each area in detail, asking what contemporary challenges are faced while trying to assure a commitment to the rules of and how it has been or should be reconceptualised. The multi-disciplinary approach will assure the book will appeal to international lawyers from across the spectrum. It will also apply to practitioners in the field of international investment and trade law.
