              Is a State free to adopt measures to protect the public health of its citizens? If so, what are the limits, if any, to such regulatory powers? This book addresses these questions by focusing on the clash between the regulatory autonomy of the state and international investment go...vernance.

              Culture represents inherited values, ideas, beliefs, and traditions, which characterize social groups and their behaviour. Culture is not a static concept but rather a dynamic force and as such has always benefitted from economic exchange. Nowadays globalization and international... economic governance offer unprecedented opportunities for cultural exchange. In parallel, foreign direct investments can promote cultural diversity and provide the funds needed to locate, recover and preserve cultural heritage. Nonetheless, globalization and international economic governance can also jeopardize cultural diversity and determine the erosion of the cultural wealth of nations. The increase in global trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) has determined the creation of legally binding and highly effective regimes that demand states to promote and facilitate trade and FDI. An international economic culture has emerged that emphasizes productivity and economic development at the expense of the common wealth. This book explores the 'clash of cultures' between international law and international cultural law exploring some key questions such as whether states can promote economic development without infringing their cultural wealth? The book is split into four parts, the first part explore the main themes and challenges while part two considers the cultural life of international economic law, part three focuses on intellectual property law and the fourth explores issues in European law. The book contains original chapters by experts in the field including Yvonne Donders, Francesco Francioni, Federico Lenzerini and Ana Vrdoljak. It covers issues including whether grass root resistance developed to cope with the threats to culture posed by economic globalization, how international courts and tribunals are adjudicating culture-related cases, and the relationships between culture, human rights, and economic activities.

              Public health has long lain at the heart of state sovereignty, as state has been traditionally conceived as guardian or trustee of the public good. In recent years, because of globalization and the increasing awareness of the fact that public health issues are of international co...ncern, such a state prerogative has been reaffirmed by a series of international law instruments. However, while public health is a core element of state sovereignty, economic globalization has posed tremendous challenges to public health policy. The increase in global trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) have determined the creation of legally binding and highly effective regimes that demand states to promote and facilitate trade and FDI. In particular international investment law has developed with a growing number of bilateral investment treaties (BITs) being signed in the last two decades. While public health concerns are rarely specifically mentioned in BITs, a number of recent arbitrations have shown the increased interaction between economic integration and public health. As a wide variety of state regulations allegedly aimed to protect public health may interfere with foreign investments, a potential tension exists between the public health policies of the host state and investment treaty provisions. Conflicts of these norms have arisen in practice and in some circumstances problems have arisen in relation to the manner of reconciling investor rights and public health. This book focuses on the 'clash of cultures' between international investment law and public health, critically analysing the emerging case law of investment treaty arbitration. The book considers the theoretical interplay between public health and investor rights in international investment law, asking questions such as is international investment law a suitable legal framework for reconciling the different interests at stake, and is investment treaty arbitration a suitable forum for disputes involving elements o

              In the age of economic globalisation, do art and heritage matter? Once the domain of elitist practitioners and scholars, the governance of cultural heritage and the destiny of iconic artefacts have emerged as the new frontier of international law, making headlines and attracting ...the varied interests of academics and policy-makers, museum curators and collectors, human rights activists and investment lawyers and artists and economists, just to mention a few. The return of cultural artefacts to their legitimate owners, the recovery of underwater cultural heritage and the protection and promotion of artistic expressions are just some of the pressing issues addressed by this book. Contemporary intersections between art, cultural heritage and the market are complicated by a variety of ethical and legal issues, which often describe complex global relations. Should works of art be treated differently from other goods? What happens if a work of art, currently exhibited in a museum, turns out to have originally been looted? What is the relevant legal framework? What should be done with ancient shipwrecks filled with objects from former colonies? Should such objects be kept by the finders? Should they be returned to the country of origin? This book addresses these different questions while highlighting the complex interplay between legal and ethical issues in the context of cultural governance. The approach is mainly legal but interdisciplinary aspects are considered as well.
