International Economics, Finance and Trade is the component of Encyclopedia of Development and Economic Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The subject matter of international economics and finance includes all transactions that cross national boundaries including trade in goods and services, capital and labor markets and transactions in financial assets. The chapters in these volumes are organized into six topics. The first topic starts with several chapters dealing with the 'core' theory in international economics and finance. The second topic presents with several chapters dealing with balance of payments and exchange rates and again emphasis is placed on the evolution of the various approaches. The third topic focuses on the International Financial Architecture, that is the intentional institutions such as the IMF, World bank and the various groupings of countries such as the G7 and G22, which have been set up to facilitate international trade and economic development .The fourth topic deals with a detailed looked at multinational Banking and Global Capital markets, including the role, if any, of regulation of capital markets and the Banking ector. The fifth topic looks at the strategic developments in international trade and issues of globalisation and international trade law as well as the use of terms such as “strategic trade policy” as a way of disguising trade protectionist arguments. The final topic deals in detail with environmental regulations, policy and property rights and their role in sustainable development.

These two volumes are aimed at the following a wide spectrum of audiences from the merely curious to those seeking in-depth knowledge: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.
