ANDREAS LOWENFELD INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC LAW PDF

Symposium Article Abstract When the major international organizations were established at the close of World War II, it was understood that they were concerned with international relations-political, economic, and social. As was made explicit in the U. Charter, but applicable in all the organizations, matters "essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state" were not the concern of the international organizations or the international community. Gradually, it became clear that the wall between domestic and international policies could not be maintained.
