Competition Law in the WTO

The Rationale for a Framework Agreement

By Roland Weinrauch

This book examines the rationale as well as the feasibility of the negotiation of a WTO competition law agreement after the Cancun Ministerial Meeting. It particularly describes: - the 'status quo' of divergent national competition regimes; - the trade and competition policy relationship; - the role of competition policy and law in the context of globalization and trade liberalization; - the global welfare losses resulting from trade-competition interrelationship problems; - the efficacy of extraterritorial enforcement of national competition law; - bilateral and regional cooperations; - legal approaches to the creation of intenational competition law; - competition related provisions in the WTO agreements; and - the main content of a WTA framework agreement.
