This book presents an accessible yet nuanced introduction to the basic structure and principles of international trade law. It explores the development of the international trade law regime, principally GATT and WTO law, and through clear and concise discussion of the many developments that have arisen, gives a streamlined overview of this notoriously complex area of legal study.
Michael Trebilcock provides a broad and deep narrative of the fundamental components of international trade law through succinct chapters, situating each topic in the context of broader domestic and international political economy considerations.
The topics covered include: the emergence of the multilateral trading system (WTO); dispute settlement; tariffs; preferential trade agreements; the principle of non-discrimination; contingent protection laws; agriculture; services; investment; intellectual property; health; safety; environmental and labour standards regulation; and the role of developing countries in the trading system. Discussion is rooted by useful reference points to basic sources throughout.
