About the Authors
  • In its first twenty years, the WTO dispute settlement system generated over 350 decisions totalling more than 60,000 pages. These decisions contain many statements by WTO adjudicators regarding the law of treaties, state responsibility, international dispute settlement, and other topics of general public international law. This book is a collection of nearly one thousand statements by WTO adjudicators relating to admissibility and jurisdiction; attribution of conduct to a State; breach of an obligation; conflicts between treaties; countermeasures; due process; evidence before international tribunals; good faith; judicial economy; municipal law; non-retroactivity; reasonableness; sources of international law; sovereignty; treaty interpretation; and words and phrases commonly used in treaties and other international legal instruments. This comprehensive digest presents summaries and extracts organized systematically under issue-specific sub-headings, making this jurisprudence easily accessible to students and practitioners working in any field of international law.

    • Cases and extracts are presented in the form of a digest, with material systematically divided into multiple chapters and subsections, under issue-specific subheadings for ease of access
    • Covers all WTO dispute settlement reports, awards and decisions generated over twenty years, which total nearly 60,000 pages
    • Extracts from cases are introduced by short explanatory sentences giving necessary context, so no prior knowledge of WTO law or jurisprudence is required
    • Includes a foreword by Joost Pauwelyn
