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 WTO law confronts legal regimes governing issues of competition and intellectual property, and secondly, where free trade is seen to be incompatible with certain human rights. This edition also includes new chapters on trade in agriculture and on government procurement and trade.
