The Journal of International Economic Law is dedicated to encouraging thoughtful and scholarly attention to a very broad range of subjects that concern the relation of law to international economic activity, by providing the major English language medium for publication of high-quality manuscripts relevant to the endeavours of scholars, government officials, legal professionals, and others.
The journal’s emphasis is on fundamental, long-term, systemic problems and possible solutions, in the light of empirical observations and experience, as well as theoretical and multi-disciplinary approaches. It provides important critiques of policies, negotiations, or court and tribunal cases and contribute modestly to promoting peace, world welfare, and enhancement of the quality of life for all peoples.
The editorial board is multi-national and not tied to any particular jurisdiction.
The views expressed in the articles, editorial comments, book reviews and notes, and other contributions to the Journal of International Economic Law are those of the individual authors and are not to be taken as representing the views of the board of editors, the board of editorial advisors, rapporteurs, or Oxford University Press.
