What People are Saying About This

Trachtman reframes the international legal field through economic analysis and public choice theory. Focusing on jurisdiction, norm generation, and institutional form, he returns to the most fundamental structural issues of the international legal order, viewing them anew by applying and extending analytic tools developed by law and economics scholars. Comprehensive, imaginative, and provocative.

Anne-Marie Slaughter

The Economic Structure of International Law is an elegantly and clearly argued contribution to the burgeoning literature connecting social science and international law. Trachtman has a true gift of demystifying jargon and explaining complicated concepts in ways that will be valuable for legal scholars and law students alike.
Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public Affairs, Princeton University

William W. Burke-White

An important new contribution to both the theoretical and practical approach to international law.
William W. Burke-White, University of Pennsylvania Law School

William Alford

Joel Trachtman is to be heartily congratulated for The Economic Structure of International Law. In this pioneering study, he deftly deploys social scientific analysis to illuminate core structural questions about the international legal order. Throughout, one sees the rich and wise understanding of international law as well as the deep scrupulousness about both tools and data that have always characterized Trachtman's scholarship.
William Alford, Harvard Law School

Andrew T. Guzman
