Examining the legal system for trade in textiles and clothing, this book begins by studying the existing system, and then goes on to look at rules governing the textile sector. It shows how the principles that make up the legal system are not sufficient for carrying out objectives in a treaty.

Part 1 The background to international trade in textiles: the historical and legal framework for international trade; the birth of a special system for textiles.
Part 2 The compatibility between the objectives and principles of the MFA with the GATT legal system: the aims and objectives of GATT and the MFA; the legal principles which underlie both treaties.
Part 3 A comparison of the mechanisms within both legal frameworks for trade: general rules directed towards achieving the liberalization of trade; exceptions to liberalization in both systems.
Part 4 The capacity of GATT and the MFA to react to changing circumstances: GATT's answer to the crisis of the 1970s and 1980s; the multifibre arrangements as alternative solutions to deficiencies within the GATT system.
Part 5 Uruguay round - the reintegration of textiles into the general system through the WTO: a new order for international trade as a necessary guarantee for a real integration of textiles; the final agreement in the textile sector - prospects for the future.
