Celebrated for their conceptual clarity, titles in the Clarendon Law Series offer concise, accessible overviews of major fields of law and legal thought. This chapter presents a survey of international economic law. It discusses the creation of the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), and the Havana Conference. It considers the roles of the World Bank, the International Development Association, the International Finance Corporation, the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization. It also looks into commodity and energy agreements and regional economic arrangements.
