Description - The Economic Structure of International Law by Joel P. Trachtman

"The Economic Structure of International Law" presents a rationalist analysis of the structure of international law. It employs social scientific techniques to develop an understanding of the role of law in international society. In doing so, it delves into the question of compliance and reveals the real-world circumstances under which states might adhere to or violate international law.Joel P. Trachtman explores such topics as treaty-making and jurisdiction; the rise, stability, and efficiency of custom; the establishment of international organizations; and the structure and role of international legal dispute settlement. At the core of the book lies the question of the allocation of legal power to states. "The Economic Structure of International Law" presents policymakers and scholars with an overarching analytical model of international law, one that demonstrates the potential of international law, but also explains how policymakers should choose among different international legal structures.
