The State-centered 'Westphalian model' of international law has failed to effectively protect human rights and other international public goods. Most international trade, financial, and environmental agreements do not even refer to human rights, consumer welfare, democratic citizen participation, and transnational rule of law for the benefit of citizens. This book argues that these 'multilevel governance failures' are largely due to inadequate regulation of the 'collective action problems' in the supply of international public goods, such as inadequate legal, judicial, and democratic accountability of governments vis-a-vis citizens. Rather than treating citizens as mere objects of intergovernmental economic and environmental regulation and leaving multilevel governance of international public goods to discretionary 'foreign policy,' human rights and constitutional democracy call for 'civilizing' and 'constitutionalizing' international economic and environmental cooperation by stronger legal and judicial protection of citizens and their constitutional rights in international economic law. Moreover, intergovernmental regulation of transnational cooperation among citizens must be justified by 'principles of justice' and 'multilevel constitutional restraints' protecting rights of citizens and their 'public reason.' The reality of 'constitutional pluralism' requires respecting legitimately diverse conceptions of human rights and democratic constitutionalism. The obvious failures in the governance of interrelated trading, financial, and environmental systems must be restrained by cosmopolitan, constitutional conceptions of international law, protecting the transnational rule of law and participatory democracy for the benefit of citizens.

About the Author:

Ernst Ulrich Petersmann is Emeritus Professor of International and European Law at the European University Institute at Florence (Italy) and former head of its Law Department. Over 35 years, he has combined academic teaching at Universities in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the USA and Asian countries with practising international economic law as legal adviser to the German Ministry of Economic Affairs, GATT and the WTO, German representative in - and legal consultant for - European and UN institutions, and as secretary, member or chairman of GATT and WTO dispute settlement panels.

Review:

The arguments are persuasive and are both legal and philosophical.There is no other book being written to make such strong and clear argument about the problems of IEL before.The book definitely deserves the highest academic recognition from many perspectives. (Chang-fa Lo Asian Journal of WTO and International Health Law and Policy, Volume 8:345)

For his distinct and distinctive reconceptualization of IEL, Petersmann deserves our thanks and praise. (Gonzalo Villalta Puig Leiden Journal of International Law, Volume 26. Issue 04.)

For over three decades, the scholarship of Professor Ernst-Ulrich Petersmann has illuminated trade law for academics, practitioners, and students alike. Writing with intensity, persuasiveness, and enviable productivity, Petersmann has opened more new doors into our thinking about international economic law (IEL)2 than any scholar of his generation.Peterman's new treatise, International Economic Law in the 21st Century, lays out his intellectual edifice in its most comprehensive and inspirational form to date. (Steve Charnovitz Journal of International Economic Law, Vol. 17, no 1)

. Petersmann's recent work is undoubtedly a significant contribution to the indeed indispensable global discourses on the future directions to be taken by the lawmaking as well as law enforcement processes in the international economic system, and it is thus highly recommended to scholars and practitioners interested in this important issue of our time. (Karsten Nowrot European Yearbook of International Economic Law 2014)
