Centre for International Economic Law, Trade and Development
“While I believe firmly in open markets and free trade, I also believe an open market needs a level playing field.” – Philip Hammond
This Centre focuses on the various relationships and conflicts that potentially arise from the purpose and functions of international institutions and States, at both the practical and policy level. The continuing evolution and sophistication of the global trading system, through the implementation of the Word Trade Organisation’s objectives, as well as the increasing prevalence of Regional Trade Agreements, International Investment Agreements, international financial regulations, Foreign Direct Investment, and the importance of such financial institutions as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, have all helped shape policy making in relation to International Trade and Economic Law.
