The legal rendering of immiseration -- Confronting the pathologies of international law : from Neoliberalism to justice -- The end of empire and the search for justice : NIEO [New International Economic Order] and beyond -- International trade : from war capitalism to contracts of distribution -- Foreign investment : property, contract, and protecting private power -- Global finance : riches for the few; harm for the many -- Human rights : between the radical and the subverted -- In lieu of a conclusion.
This book challenges conventional justifications of economic globalization and eschews false choices. It is not about whether one is "for" or "against" international trade, foreign investment, or global finance. The issue is to resolve how, if we are to engage in trade, investment, and finance, we do so in a manner that is accountable to persons whose lives are affected by international law. The deployment of human rights for their part must be considered against the ubiquity of neoliberal globalization under law, and not merely as a discrete, benevolent response to it.
