Grey Zones in International Economic Law and Global Governance

Grey Zones in International Economic Law and Global Governance

Daniel Drache (Editor), Lesley A. Jacobs (Editor)

Since the 2008 economic meltdown, marketdriven globalization has posed new challenges for governments. This volume introduces the concept of “grey zones” of global governance, where state policy and market behaviour interact with respect to trade, the environment, food security, and investment.

Grey zones allow the bending of international rules, which both promotes uniformity in many areas of public life and facilitates diverse forms of capitalism in market societies, enabling governments to balance national and global economic benefits.

This exploration of local engagement with international economic law offers an innovative way to interpret public concerns about trade, investment, food security, green energy, subsidies, and antidumping actions.
