'Constitutionalising Economic Globalisation offers insightful commentary on some of the ongoing problems with international investment law, for example the regime's often opaque and unpredictable rules as well as its difficulty in accommodating genuine economic crises and environmental issues. As an author Schneiderman is an assiduous researcher (the case studies on Latin America and South Africa are particularly impressive) and for these reasons alone the book should be read by anyone with an interest in international investment law, especially those familiar with political philosophy. ... the application of domestic constitutional principles to the field of international investment law is a unique approach done skilfully.'
