This is the third edition of a highly acclaimed work on the WTO, providing a complete overview of its law and practice. It traces the origins and development, via the GATT, of all of the substantive legal areas covered by the WTO, as well as its sources of law, dispute settlement system, enforcement mechanisms, and its impact on other areas of law.
One of the pivotal works on the WTO, indispensable for
1 The World Trade Organization; 2 WTO Law and National Laws of Member States; 3 Sources of Law and Principles of Interpretation; 4 Dispute Settlement; 5 Enforcement of WTO Obligations: Remedies and Compliance; 6 Most-Favoured Nation; 7 National Treatment; 8 Tariffs, Quotas and Other Barriers to Market Access; 9 Agricultural Trade; 10 Subsides and Countervailing Measures; 11 Antidumping; 12 Safeguards; 13 Technical Regulations, Standards and Health Measures; 14 Preferential Trade Agreements; 15 Export Controls and National Security; 16 Trade in Services; 17 Intellectual Property; 18 Government Procurement; 19 Developing Countries; 20 Environmental Protection and Trade; 21 Trade and Investment; 22 Competition Policy and Trade
The WTO is one of the most important intergovernmental organizations in the world, yet the way in which it functions as an organization and the scope of its authority and power are still poorly understood. This comprehensively revised new edition of the acclaimed work by an outstanding team of WTO law specialists provides a complete overview of the law and practice of the WTO.
The authors begin with the institutional law of the WTO (such as the sources of law and remedies of the dispute settlement system), then tackle the principal substantive obligations of the WTO regime (including tariffs, quotas, and MFN). They then move on to consider unfair trade, regional trading arrangements, and developing countries. In its final section the book deals with the consequences of globalization: firstly, where free trade is seen to be incompatible with environmental protection
and, secondly, where WTO law confronts legal regimes governing issues of competition and intellectual property.
