This comprehensive work explains clearly and thoroughly all the provisions of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). It examines the Agreement article by article and also steers practitioners through the case law based upon it.

For each Article it examines the relevant business issues, explains the meaning of the Article, discusses all interpreventive and adjudicatory decisions that bear upon it, and also discusses alternative theoretical underpinnings of the Article. Areas of uncertainty and ambiguity are highlighted throughout.

  • Article by Article approach exploring the Agreement and guiding the practitioner through it
  • Critical analysis of each of the provisions of GATT
  • Examines the case law that has arisen as a result of the Agreement
  • Appendices contain the text of GATT and other relevant treaties
