Trade, Law & Development: Special Issue on India and the World Economic Order

[The following is an announcement from the Trade, Law & Development journal]
The Board of Editors of Trade, Law & Development
is pleased to announce the theme for its next Special Issue (Vol. V, No. 1,
2013): India and the World Economic Order.
More than two decades ago, India abandoned its
quasi-isolationist position and began implementing radical policy changes in
order to fully integrate itself into the world trading system. Through the
years India has attempted to strike a balance between its welfare agenda and
the compliance necessitated by the prevalent international legal order, by
shifting from a quasi-isolationist position in the world economic system, to
achieving a considerable amount of trade and investment activity.

Inspired by the role of India in the continuing evolution of the world
economic system, the Board of Editors invites original, unpublished submissions
for the
Special Issue on India and the World Economic Order for
publication as ‘Articles’, ‘Notes’, ‘Comments’ and/or ‘Book Reviews’.
Submissions can deal with any aspect of India’s role or policies in the world
economic system. Manuscripts may be submitted via email, ExpressO, or the
TL&D website. The last date for submissions is February 15, 2013. For
further information and submission guidelines, please visit the journal website
