International Trade and FDI: An Advanced Introduction to Regulation and Facilitation


This book is for use in IMBA, MIB, LLM and other graduate programs; in university-based executive development programs; and in in-company seminars — and for use as a handbook and reference book by managers, executives, board members, consultants, and legal counsel who are engaged in the practice of international trade and/or foreign direct investment (FDI).

The authors provide an advanced introduction to international trade and FDI terms, concepts, principles, and practices — and to the governmental, intergovernmental, and nongovernmental factors that regulate or facilitate the conduct of international trade and FDI. These factors include, inter alia:

  • tariff barriers, non-tariff barriers, and other barriers to trade;
  • entry and post-entry barriers to FDI;
  • provisions contained in the GATT and other trade instruments;
  • the functionalities of the WTO, other global mechanisms, and regional trade blocks; and
  • international standards, the harmonization of laws, and the settlement of disputes.

The material in the book is drawn from multiple disciplines, which include international relations, international trade, international law, and economic and diplomatic history; relies primarily on original source materials; makes extensive use of examples; and is formatted to facilitate its use as a textbook, handbook, and reference book.
