PROMPTS (WRITE 750-1000 words for EACH PROMPT BELOW) 1. We have studied the historical regimes of trade and investment law as they evolve from the early modern to late modern period, during which time the Westâ€™s expansionist projects shape the content, processes and evolution of modern international economic law (remember Grotius â€œfather of public international lawâ€ working for VOC at the time he wrote his classic works!). Using the readings we did on the imperial origins of international investment and trade law (e.g., the Berlin West Africa Conference Final Actâ€™s creation of a free trade area in Africa, the formation of an international free trade regime in sugar through the 1902 Brussels Convention process, international investment lawâ€™s imperial framing of the host state environment) describe how key principles and processes of modern international economic law are formed through European colonialism/imperialism. In particular, address the relationship between colonialism/imperialism and â€œfree trade,â€ two seemingly contradictory ways of organizing international economic life. 2. Rajagopal argues that international legal scholarship has not taken seriously enough the role of 3rd World resistance in shaping international law, both substantively and institutionally (e.g., as affects the major IFIs). Using course materials that have looked at international trade, investment and finance law in the post-WW II era, describe areas and processes of contestation that exist around different aspects of international economic law. Be sure to provide a description of key legal principles, rules and policies discussed in the readings related to trade liberalization generally (e.g., vs. the environment), EPZs, ISDS, IP and international finance. Then, lay out the contested processes by which key aspects of international economic law have taken shape over the past half century or so. Based on these materials, address the relationship between human rights and international economic law as it has evolved over this period and, in no more than a short paragraph, explain the limits of relying on a human rights approach to correcting problems arising from international economic life and law.
