The new book “The Future of International Economic Law and the Rule of Law” has been published this month, edited by Professor Dr Rafael Leal-Arcas.

My chapter, based on a presentation at a 2018 conference at Queen Mary University of London, is a comparative study of environmental project standards in the Belt and Road Initiative, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and BRICS New Development Bank. Other chapters also examine the Belt and Road Initiative and environmental issues in the contexts of international investment arbitration and the Energy Community.
