This special edition of Bedrijfsjuridische berichten is devoted to the subject of international trade restrictions, an area of growing concern for many companies and financial institutions that are directly or indirectly involved in crossborder sales or purchases, or in the financing of such transactions.
The first article provides a general introduction to three of the main regulatory hurdles to international trade, i.e. export controls, trade sanctions and anti-dumping and anti-subsidy legislation respectively. Specific aspects of these three subjects are further developed in the following three contributions.
