dc.description.abstractThis book contribution explains why international economic law (IEL) is increasingly taught from diverse, national and regional perspectives and value premises (I). IEL courses should give an overview of the common regulatory objectives, instruments and legal methodology challenges of IEL (II) and of how the ‘embedded liberalism’ underlying UN and WTO law promotes non-discriminatory ‘regulatory competition’ and diversity of national and regional IEL systems (III). They should explain why the post-1945 ‘embedded liberalism compromise’ needs to be adjusted to the global environmental, health and sustainable development challenges and to the need for stronger protection of transnational rule-of-law in world trade, investment and environmental law and governance. Without maintaining the compulsory WTO dispute settlement system and investment and human rights adjudication, the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Agenda and its citizen-oriented ‘sustainable development goals’ cannot realize their human rights objectives (IV).en
