NZ Centre of International Economic Law

The New Zealand Centre of International Economic Law (NZCIEL) was established in 2007 at Victoria University's Law Faculty in Wellington as an interdisciplinary centre of research excellence on all issues relating to international economic law. The founding co-directors were Susy Frankel and Meredith Lewis.

The field of international economic law encompasses all those parts of Public International Law which regulate international economic relations, including: the law of the World Trade Organization, the international monetary system, international investment law, international intellectual property law, international law of natural resources and development and the world's network of treaties for the avoidance of double taxation.

The NZCIEL engages in research and provides programming on a wide range of international economic law issues. To register your interest and join our mailing list, please email address.
