Contents Preface -- Introduction -- Cooperation narratives and theoretical divergences -- Developing countries' love-hate relationship with neoliberalism -- Seeking a new balance of rights and obligations in international investment law -- Emerging economies, developmental strategies and trade standards : the search for alternative space -- Emerging economies and the future of the global trade and investment regime.
Summary "The post-war liberal economic order seems to be crumbling, placing the world at an inflection point. China has emerged as a major force, and other emerging economies seek to play a role in shaping world trade and investment law. Might they band together to mount a wholesale challenge to current rules and institutions? [This book] argues that resistance from the global South and the creation of China-led alternative spaces will have some impact, but no robust alternative vision will emerge. Significant legal innovations from the South depart from the mainstream neoliberal model, but these countries are driven by pragmatism and strategic self-interest and not a common ideological orientation, nor do they intend to fully dismantle the current ordering. In this book, [the authors] predict a more pluralistic world, which is neither the continued hegemony of neoliberalism nor a full blown alternative to it."-- Provided by publisher.
