The Jindal Global Law Review is currently accepting submissions for its first issue of volume V to be published in January 2013.
Theme: Role of International Economic Law in the Age of Global Economic Crisis
Sub Themes: Some of the significant questions that may be considered for this issue include:
• Do the IEL institutions face legitimacy and accountability crisis?
• How effective are the rules and decision making processes and governance structures of the IEL institutions? Again, do the IEL rules and principles constrain the ability of governments to effectively respond to the global economic crisis?
• To what extent did national regulatory bodies and domestic agencies implementing IEL treaties and transnational economic rules observe adherence to IEL’s bedrock principles? Has the IEL system succeeded in establishing a set of ‘universal economic values’ that transcend economic crises or governance failures?
• Has IEL fulfilled its functions? If yes, what led to the current crisis in international trade, finance, development and environment systems?
• How did the international business community—the private actors of IEL– respond to the crisis? Is it possible to discern any emerging norms outside the traditional settings?
• How can IEL bring about resurgence in the global economy?
