About the event
The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London is organising an event on Political Economy and Trade and Investment.
Date:13 May 2019, 17:00 to 18:00
Venue: Somerset House East Wing, Strand Campus, London.
This session will focus on the political economy of international economic law, and how such an analysis could remedy certain issues arising in investment and trade law.
Indeed, globalisation is often viewed as detrimental to the right of states to regulate or to pursue national policy goals.
However, this dichotomous view – opposing international to national interests – is inaccurate. Indeed, some solutions (derived from a political economic analysis of international economic law) could be adopted so as to further both interests – without having the development of one aspect necessarily disrupting the other.
The papers to be discussed are as follows:
- On political economy and trade law: Bernard Hoekman and Douglas Nelson, 21st Century Trade Agreements and the Owl of Minerva, EUI Working Paper RSCAS 2018/04.
- On political economy and investment law: Aisbett, Emma and Bonnitcha, Jonathan, Compensation under Investment Treaties – As if Host Interests Mattered (November 8, 2018). UNSW Law Research Paper No. 18-80.
