Book Description: How did a treaty that emerged in the aftermath of the Second World War, and barely survived its early years, evolve into one of the most influential organisations in international law? This unique book brings together original contributions from an unprecedented number of eminent current and former GATT and WTO staff members, including many current and former Appellate Body members, to trace the history of law and lawyers in the GATT/WTO and explore how the nature of legal work has evolved over the institution's sixty-year history. In doing so, it paints a fascinating portrait of the development of the rule of law in the multilateral trading system, and allows some of the most important personalities in GATT and WTO history to share their stories and reflect on the WTO's remarkable journey from a 'provisionally applied treaty' to an international organisation defined by its commitment to the rule of law.

Book Description: International economic law has been evolving toward an unprecedented degree of institutionalism and supranational legal authority, expressed through the availability of legalistic and more coercive mechanisms to develop international legal obligations enforceable upon states. This book will explore the transparency of the Dispute Settlement Mechanism (DSM) within the World Trade Organization (WTO), the level of participation of the WTO members, especially those of the developing and the least-developed countries, and the attitude of the DSM in relation to the issue of development.

Book Description: The system of dispute resolution within the WTO and its evolution over time have attracted the attention of numerous scholars. This volume brings together a selection of papers by prominent scholars working in a range of disciplines. The collection is divided into six parts. The first addresses broad questions about the scope and function of the dispute resolution system. Part II considers the relationship between the dispute system and national authorities, while part III focuses more narrowly on the remedies for breach of legal obligations in the WTO system. Part IV examines litigation and settlement questions. Part V considers the pre-WTO environment and the role of unilateralism in the enforcement of commitments under GATT. The final section looks at broader systemic issues. This insightful volume will be an essential source of reference for students and practitioners alike. 25 articles, dating from 1992 to 2003
