Research projects

ITICL group members collectively research across a wide range of interests, including:

  • The expanding field of international economic law, including intellectual and cultural property law, direct finance and international investment law and the regulation of market access and supply chain management;
  • The role that nation States, international and regional organisations and institutions, and non-State actors play in the creation, implementation and enforcement of hard and soft laws that regulate international trade and commerce;
  • The effectiveness of international trade and international commercial laws;
  • The intersections between law and the regulation of trade and commerce, and poverty, gender and development, the environment and development, and human rights; and
  • The impact, challenges and opportunities offered by international trade and international commercial law dispute resolution processes, including WTO disputes processes and international commercial arbitration, and the relations between those processes.

Our members are involved in a range of projects, and publish widely on international trade and international commercial law matters.
