The programme offers an in-depth study of all the different aspects of the contemporary regime of international economic law. Unlike most other programmes, it overcomes the division between the main branches of international economic governance – world trade, investment, and finance – and raises awareness for common themes and challenges facing international economic law in these different areas. The rare combination of doctrinal, theoretical, legal-historical, comparative, and policy perspectives which this programme provides will prove highly attractive both to public- and private-sector employers. The programme will be of particular interest to those interested in pursuing a career in international organisations, government service, advanced research institutions, think-tanks, NGOs, independent consultancy, and academia. Students seeking to pursue a career in legal practice will benefit from the programme’s broad approach: they will be able to situate specific legal problems arising in highly practical areas (such as world trade, or investment law) within the broader context of international economic law.
