WTO Jurisprudence: Governments, Private Rights and International Trade


ISBN13: 9780367428761
To be Published: July 2020
Publisher:
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £120.00



This book offers a critical examination of the jurisprudence of the World Trade Organization (WTO) as an emancipatory international social contract on trade.

The book suggests that the WTO is an international organization built and operating on member states’ attribution of authority through consent with legislative, administrative and adjudicative functions — three functions in one triune personality. With a solid constitutional continuity building on GATT experiences, the WTO has successfully made governments accountable to foreign individuals in various capacities either as traders of goods, providers of service, or holders of intellectual property rights within the global marketplace. With a triune personality, the WTO operates within the reign of state primacy — the force — ultimately for the benefits of individuals — the ends — in the global marketplace, and gains a soul of its own in the institutional evolution — the means — of the global trading regime. Although the tripartite dynamics between states, international institutions and individuals in the global marketplace are unprecedentedly complex, the WTO’s ends of benefiting individuals in the global marketplace has no end. Beyond the critical analysis of WTO’s decision-making by consensus, the book critically examines GATT’s "common intention" treaty interpretation, Antidumping’s NME methodology, TRIPS’ public health concerns, and IP-competition trade policy dynamics. A unified WTO jurisprudence looking at the WTO as an international social contract on trade is therefore proposed to allow a fresh look at the force, the means and the ends of the constitutional evolution of the global trading regime.
