درباره این کتاب:
Th e multiplicity of commitments resulting from the World Trade Organization (WTO), free trade agreements (FTAs), bilateral investment treaties and other agreements has increasingly complicated the nature of national obligations. Th e World Bank and IMF further impinge on national autonomy by imposing a variety of conditions on loans and other forms of funding. All of these treaty obligations impact on governments’ ability to exercise complete autonomy in the establishing and administering of national policy objectives. In particular, the rules and decisions arising from these international agreements and fi nancial institutions result in limitations on countries’ ability to make a wide range of regulatory decisions, including those relating to health, environment, immigration and other issues of national importance. Until relatively recently, these types of regulatory matters were regarded as policies almost exclusively to be determined by sovereign nations. At the same time that international agreements pose constraints on national regulatory autonomy, there remains considerable national autonomy in relation to how to comply with the variety of obligations the agreements impose. Th is tension between international cooperation and autonomy to act in the national interest is the core theme running through this collection.
