This book brings together the 2006–2007 output of the American Law Institute (ALI) project on World Trade Organization Law. Each chapter focuses on a different dispute from the adjudicating bodies of the WTO. Each case is jointly evaluated by well known experts in trade law and international economics. ALI reporters critically review the jurisprudence of WTO adjudicating bodies and evaluate whether the ruling ‘makes sense’ from an economic as well as a legal point of view, and, if not, whether the problem lies in the interpretation of the law or the law itself. The studies do not always cover all issues discussed in a case, but they seek to discuss both the procedural and the substantive issues that form, in the reporters’ view, the ‘core’ of the dispute. This paperback will be an invaluable resource for students, lecturers and practitioners of international trade law.

  • Independent review of the WTO jurisprudence
  • Interdisciplinary approach - analysis from a joint economic and legal perspective
  • Analysis by world leading academics in field of trade law and international economics
