WTO Law and Process
The 10th anniversary of the WTO and of its successful dispute settlement mechanism in 2005, provides the opportunity for a review of how to improve the efficiency and legitimacy of WTO law and process. This book collects the papers and discussion at the last three British Institute's Annual WTO Conferences (2002-2004), where judges, officials and policy-makers met with established scholars. Topics covered include the jurisprudential and procedural features of the dispute settlement system, institutional issues such as the allocation of powers within the WTO as well as between the organization and its members, the relationship between the WTO legal system and international law, compliance issues, the interrelation between trade liberalization and other non-trade concerns such as environmental protection and labor standards.
