Bretton Woods' has become shorthand for the post-war international financial and economic framework. Mindful of the historic 1944 conference and its legacy for the discipline of international economic law, the American Society of International Law's International Economic Law Group (IELG) chose Bretton Woods as the venue for a landmark scholarly meeting. In November of 2006, a diverse group of academics and practitioners gathered to reflect on the past, present and future of international economic law. They sought to survey and advance three particular areas of endeavour: research and scholarship, teaching, and practice/service. This book represents an edited collection of some of the exceptional papers presented at the conference. The volume is organised into three sections, each covering one of the three pillars in the discipline of international economic law: research and scholarship; teaching; and, practice/service.It begins with an assessment of the state and future of research in the field, including chapters on questions such as: what is international economic law? Is it a branch of international law or of economic law? How do fields outside of law, such as economics and international relations, relate to international economic law? The next section looks at the state and future of teaching in the subject. Chapters cover topics such as: how should international economic law be taught, and when and to whom? Should it be taught in different ways in different places? The final section of the book focuses on the state and future of international economic law practice in the Bretton Woods era, including institutional reform. This book promises to play a role in the next phase of the development of international economic law.It contains useful prescriptive advice on teaching IEL, and guidance on where the subject is headed in the future. It analyses the developments in the field of international economic law, focusing on teaching, scholarship, and practice/service. The contributions, from leading academics, examine the development and future of International Economic Law. This book will be of interest to lawyers, economists and other professionals throughout the world- whether in the private, public, academic or non-governmental sectors.
