Formerly Executive Director of the Advisory Centre on WTO Law, Visiting Professor at the Georgetown University Law Centre and Director of Legal Affairs at the GATT Secretariat.

1 Ernst-Ulrich Petersmann left the GATT Secretariat to pursue a very successful academic career, publishing prolifically in the field of international economic relations. He wrote a detailed review of Slobodian's book, challenging many aspects of Slobodian's analysis of neoliberal thinking (Journal of International Economic Law, 21 (2018), pages 915–921). The present brief comment, which concentrates on Slobodian's analysis of the relationship between redistributive policies and the law of the WTO, can be read as a supplement to Professor Petersmann's review.
