Sustainable Trade, Investment and Finance: Toward responsible and coherent regulatory frameworks

By Clair Gammage & Tonia Novitz (Eds.), published by Edward Elgar, 2019

Sustainable development remains a high priority in international politics and commerce. This book explores how the contours and facets of economic, environmental and social sustainability are reflected in the legal norms that govern trade, investment and finance. Examining a range of issues arising from private initiatives, national conduct and international organizations, the chapters interrogate the role of powerful global actors in the pursuit of sustainable development. The authors identify and investigate challenges to the realization of a coherent sustainable development policy, engaging with the complex interactions of international, regional and national mechanisms that pose significant problems for the future of the planet, its people and their prosperity.
