ABOUT THE ISSUE
Founded in 2009, the philosophy of Trade, Law and Development Journal has been to generate and sustain a constructive and democratic debate on emergent issues in international economic law and to serve as a forum for the discussion and distribution of ideas. The theme for its next Special Issue (Vol. VI, No. 1) is Trade and Climate Change.
Climate change is one of the foremost challenges facing the global community today and intersects with international trade in numerous ways. Sustainable development and protection and preservation of the environment are recognized as fundamental goals of the WTO, although its principal objective is to foster international trade.
This Issue invites original, unpublished submissions for the Special Issue on Trade and Climate Change for publication as ‘Articles’, ‘Notes’, ‘Comments’ and ‘Book Reviews’. Preference will be given to submissions that espouse perspectives of developing and under-developed countries.
Manuscripts may be submitted via email, ExpressO, or the TL&D website.
