About the Authors
  • This book analyses the role of international organizations in WTO dispute settlement as arising from a number of WTO disputes. In particular, the roles of the IMF, WIPO, WCO and WHO are addressed. The use of the Vienna Convention rules of interpretation framework allows an evaluation of the weight attributed to this material by the WTO adjudicator. This allows specific conclusions to be drawn regarding the level of institutional sensitivity of the WTO adjudicator to each of the organizations. As well as being a valuable source of research, the analysis will appeal to international law scholars, civil servants and law practitioners interested in the WTO and dispute settlement.

    • Literature overview allows a thorough examination of the WTO judiciary's interactions with international organizations and the level of sensitivity shown to each of them
    • In-depth analysis of the interactions between the WTO and other international organizations will appeal to those concerned with the functioning of the WTO and its dispute settlement
    • The sensitivity of the WTO adjudicator is assessed through the prism of VCLT rules of interpretation, thus giving the investigation a multidimensional perspective
