9780199227969: Multinational Enterprises and the Law (Oxford International Law Library)

Multinational Enterprises and the Law represents the only comprehensive contemporary and interdisciplinary account of the various techniques used to regulate multinational enterprises (MNEs) at the national, regional and multilateral levels. In it, Peter Muchlinksi analyses the major regulatory areas relating to multinational enterprises and covers the main economic law issues relating to jurisdiction, entry and establishment controls and liberalization, tax, company law, competition and technology transfer. The book also deals with the increasingly prominent demands for corporate social responsibility covering labor, rights, human rights and the environment, and the recent developments in arbitral decisions that give increased importance to the protection standards contained in international investment protection agreements.

From the Back Cover:

Multinational enterprises are becoming a dominant force in international business but surprisingly little has been written on the vital question of the legal issues surrounding their global operations.

Newly updated in paperback, Multinational Enterprises and the Law represents the only complete contemporary and interdisciplinary account of the various techniques used to regulate MNE's at national, regional and international levels. The coverage is comprehensive, authoritative and accessible using numerous case studies from both developed and developing stages to unite theory and current practice.

Split into three major sections the book deals with:


  • Part I - the conceptual background to MNE regulation.

  • Part II - a complete examination of the limits of national and regional jurisdiction in regulating MNEs, restrictions on entry and establishment, investment promotion, the impact of the WTO post-entry controls in the fields of tax, company law, antitrust and labour law.

  • Part III - the contribution of international law and organizations to the regulation of MNEs, including renegotiations and expropriation, ICSID, MIGA and bilateral investment treaties.


The author has skilfully identified the contributions that economics, politics and sociology can add to a full understanding of the legal environment in which the MNE operates.

There can be no doubt that the breadth and depth of the coverage in this book will make it the definitive reference for students, researchers and practitioners in international law, business law, development studies, international politics and international business.
