The Nijhoff International Trade Law Series is a forum for important and original research. It covers international trade law in its widest sense, including International Economic Law and International Financial Law.
The series moves across the boundaries that divide the law. The series includes studies of trade law subjects that would fall within the disciplines and sub-disciplines of public and private international and comparative law. National implementation and other aspects of the interaction between national and international law is a growing field of scholarship, and national constitutional arrangements relating to 'foreign affairs', and to the implementation of international norms, are a focus of attention. The relationship between different treaty regimes and the emergence of international rule of law concepts are also subjected to more rigorous analysis. Comparative law is increasingly used as a tool in the making of law at national, regional and international levels. Different international and national systems interact in ever more complicated ways. Private international law is often affected by international conventions, and the issues faced by classical conflict rules are dealt with by substantive harmonization of law. International arbitrations involve public and private international law, and investment protection and human rights and democratic standards.
Books published in the series have been through a rigorous peer review, where the editors are assisted by leading trade law scholars. In addition to scholarly monographs, the series will publish edited collections of essays.
