The thirty articles explore the concept of the rule of law taking a multi-disciplinary approach and their collection provides an important contribution to a better understanding of various forms of the rule of law in international law. Reconceptualising the Rule of Law in Global Governance, Resources, Investment and Trade is thus a much recommended and stimulating reading for those interested in contemporary international law and its different fields. -- Ondrej Svoboda * Espaco Juridico Journal of Law *
