01.11.21 —Professor Sonia Elise Rolland’s book, Emerging Powers in International Economic Law — Cooperation, Competition and Transformation (2019, Cambridge University Press, co-authored with David M. Trubek) has been selected as an Outstanding Academic Titles for 2020 by CHOICE — the review publication of the Association of College and Research Libraries. Only 10 percent of approximately 6,000 eligible reviewed titles are awarded each year.

“I am honored that our book was selected. Beyond the legal community, we are excited to reach political science and international relations experts and future policy-makers,” said Rolland, whose research focuses on the legal framework for sustainable and socio-economic development in international economic law. The book charts emerging countries’ dissatisfaction with the world order and offers perspectives for a new international economic governance regime. Rolland and Trubek predict a more pluralist world, which is neither the continued hegemony of neoliberalism nor a full-blown alternative to it.
