Multinational Enterprises and the Law presents the only comprehensive, contemporary, and interdisciplinary account of the various techniques used to regulate multinational enterprises (MNEs) at the national, regional and multilateral levels. In addition it considers the effects of corporate self-regulation upon the development of the legal order in this area.

Split into four parts the book firstly deals with the conceptual basis for MNE regulation, explaining the growth of MNEs, their business and legal forms, the relationship between them and the effects of a globalising economy and society upon the evolution of regulatory agendas in the field. Part II covers the main areas of economic regulation including the limits of national and regional jurisdiction over MNE activities, controls and liberalization of entry and establishment; tax and company, and competition law. Part III introduces the social dimension of MNE regulation covering labour rights, human rights, and environmental issues, and Part IV deals with the contribution of international law and organizations to MNE regulation and to the control of investment risks, covering the main provisions found in international investment agreements and their recent interpretation by international tribunals.

Industry Reviews

"A Fascinating, comprehensive and sometimes very detailed book covering all major legal (and sometimes other important) aspects and issues related to the MNE. It explains well the history and evolution of various models and the theories behind them, and provides ideas on forthcoming ways of regulation. Recommended for anyone involved in international business as well as officials dealing with the subject matter. It is both a reference for specific issues and a book well worth reading on a stand-alone basis."
--Leif Gustafsson, International Company and Commercial Law Review
