Wolters Kluwer


671 pages




Guzman (law, U. of California at Berkeley, US) and Pauwelyn (international law, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Switzerland) introduce international trade law in general and the law of the World Trade Organization in specific, combining the US case law approach with core elements of the European textbook method. Following presentation of background economics, politics, and institutional structure and history, the volume follows the structure of the major WTO agreements. They explain the WTO dispute settlement system; the core principles and exceptions under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trades (i.e. tariffs, quantitative restrictions, national treatment, most-favored nation, preferential trade agreements, and general exceptions); the trade remedies of subsidies, dumping, and safeguards; sanitary, phytosanitary, and other non-tariff barriers to trade in goods; trade in services; protection of intellectual property rights; and the WTO's treatment of developing countries.
