Overview

There has never been a more important time to understand the global economy: global value chains where goods are made and traded across the world, investment flows that stimulate economic growth and destabilis domestic policies, regional politics pursued through shared economic institutions with neighbours, and international arbitration and dispute settlement challenging the dynamics between individuals and the State, between North and South, and between private and public power, are all at the forefront of contemporary concerns.

This International Economic Law programme from University of Liverpool provides you with a theoretical and doctrinal knowledge of the legal and institutional frameworks which govern the global economy. You will examine the law and institutions of the global economy in their international, regional, and national settings and examine the pressing contemporary challenges in the global economy.
