Are states allowed to prohibit the importation of products made by children? Can foreign investors claim compensation when their host state raises the minimum wage? In this book Ruben Zandvliet examines the ways in which international trade and investment law enables and constrains the ability of states to regulate labour. In addition to analysing the interactions between the relevant norms, it explains how linkages between international economic law and labour navigate between two notions: fair competition and fundamental rights. This study is agnostic about which of these objectives ought to shape international law, thus allowing a critical examination of the relevant rules of public international law, as well as legal and economic scholarship.

The Max Planck Commentaries on World Trade Law explain the whole range of world trade law in seven individual article-by-article type commentaries. While the first volume (WTO – World Economic Order, World Trade Law) serves as a nutshell-type introduction to the WTO, the remaining six volumes focus on specific aspects of WTO law. The second volume (WTO – Institutions and Dispute Settlement) brings together the WTO institutional fundamentals and the whole dispute settlement. The third volume (WTO – Technical Barriers and SPS Measures) deals with the most controversial provisions on technical standards, protection of health and environment. The fourth volume (WTO – Trade Remedies) is devoted to the very specific area of antidumping, subsidies and safeguards. The fifth volume (WTO – Trade in Goods) comments on the substantial trade in good rules of the GATT/WTO. Finally, the sixth and seventh volume (WTO – Trade in Services and WTO – Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) deal with intellectual property rights and trade in services rules respectively.
