European Yearbook of International Economic Law 2018

By Marc Bungenberg, Markus Krajewski, Christian J. Tams, Jörg Philipp Terhechte, Andreas R. Ziegler (Eds.), published by Springer, 2019

This volume focuses on natural resources law understood as a special area of international economic law. In light of increasing conflicts over access to and use of natural resources—and of their impact on political, social and environmental aspects—contributors to this volume analyze the extent to which international economic law can support the sustainable exploitation, management and distribution of natural resources. The volume offers discussions of general principles of natural resources law, the importance of natural resources for trade, investment and European economic law, and analyses of particular sectors. Further sections address recent case law. The volume also contains review essays of important recent books in international economic law. Available at
