Consumer law and policy continues to be of great concern to both national and international regulatory bodies, and the second edition of the Handbook of Research on International Consumer Law provides an updated international and comparative analysis of the central legal and policy issues, in both developed and developing economies.

Taking a thematic approach, and yet highlighting issues in different national contexts, the Handbook explores issues which are common to all countries, such as social policy and effective business regulation, and relates consumer law to contemporary trends in human rights law.

Features of this edition:

  • consideration of the potential for new regulatory complexity as a result of Brexit
  • reflections on the growth of middle class consumption in Asia and Latin America and the impact that this will have on business reforms
  • coverage of increasing divergence between the regulatory models of both the EU and the US
  • focus on the challenges and opportunities that the digital age presents for consumer market regulation
  • analysis of the significant changes in consumer credit law and policy since the financial crash of 2008.
This Handbook will provide researchers, students and policymakers with an insight to the main policy debates in differing national and sectoral contexts, and provide models of legal regulation which contribute to the evaluation and development of consumer laws and policy.
