Global trade law series.
International Economic Law and the Challenges of the Free Zones' is of assistance to the future development of economic zones around the world, offering a critical and comprehensive analysis of the dynamic special economic zone (SEZ) phenomenon across legal, economic, investment, regulatory and policy matrices. SEZs have become a permanent feature of the world trade scene. This book shows how SEZs, albeit established at the domestic level by different countries, raise multiple legal issues under international economic law. This book is the product of the Asia FDI Forum IV held in Hong Kong in 2018. It takes a giant step towards answering the question of whether SEZs fundamentally contradict norms of international law or whether SEZs have to be considered as laboratories which facilitate the implementation of international economic policies.
