In todays globalised world, an understanding of international trade is essential for those studying and practising law, business, banking and finance. International Trade Law offers a comprehensive and informed analysis of the complexities of an international sale transaction through case law, policy documents, legislation, international conventions and rules adopted by international organisations such as the ICC. Focusing on international sales of goods and the various relations that arise as a result of sale contract, this book considers and discusses: Standard trade terms, the Convention on International Sales of Goods 1980 and the UNIDROIT Principles for International Commercial Contracts 2004; Issues relating to E-Commerce including electronic transport documents, especially electronic bills of landing; International transportation of cargo, both unimodal (sea, air, land and rail) and multimodal, the various conventions affecting such transportation and the proposed new convention drafted by UNCITRAL and CMI; Insurance and payment mechanisms, in particular letters of credit and the recently adopted UCP 600; Dispute resolution including issues of jurisdiction, applicable law, arbitration and mediation; Corruption as a major challenge to conducting business and the various anti-corruption conventions, in particular the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention 1997 and the UN Convention Against corruption 2003. Accessible to students encountering this often challenging area of the law for the first time, International Trade Law clarifies a range of topics through Tables and diagrams, and directs the reader to relevant further reading, online resources, and journal articles throughout

Dictionary of International Trade Law is the first of its kind book. This Dictionary defines and explains in detail hundreds of terms - common and uncommon ones - used in the field, from the "ACU" and "CMAA" to "TIFA" and the "WCO." Many entries include organizational charts (e.g., the structure of the new Department of Homeland Security) and tables (e.g., of precedent-setting cases on zeroing). Many entries also provide references for further research. Notably, the Dictionary has three Annexes - • SAnnex A contains 25 maps, of the world, regions, and countries, from the Artic to Zambia, not only showing states and provinces (e.g., in Brazil and India), but also highlighting disputed territories (e.g., in Kashmir) ● Annex B sets out research tools, such as tables on milestones in Chinese history (from early dynasties through modern legal reforms), EU institutions, U.S. trade statutes, and useful websites on trade law. • SAnnex C has data on U.S. FTAs, including votes by political party in Congress, on immediate versus deferred duty-free treatment for goods, market access for services, and government procurement thresholds. In sum, the 600-page Dictionary aims to help students, scholars, and practitioners through the complex jargon of trade. Like the Textbook, International Trade Law: Interdisciplinary Theory and Practice, the Dictionary is inter-disciplinary, paying special attention to practical terms and theoretical concepts from international economics and development studies. Among the highlights of the second edition of the Dictionary are: • Several dozen brand New and Expansive entries for even more thorough coverage! • Updated and expanded material for hundreds of existing entries. • Several hundred Suggestions for Further Research. • Compilation, synthesis, and analysis of data on every one of America's Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and of every one of Japan's FTAs, all thoroughly updated since the first edition. • Updated historical information about milestones in the economic development of the European Union (EU) and China. • Revised maps for every region of the world, and several major countries.

Starting from the premise that a multilateral legal framework is the surest way to achieve predictability and transparency under conditions of increasing reliance on internationally traded energy, the essays gathered in this book treat the many complex interlocking issues raised by examining that desideratum in the light of current reality. Concentrating on the application of WTO agreements to energy trade - as well as energy-related issues addressed in the current WTO negotiations - the authors offer in-depth discussion and analysis of such issues as the following: the effectiveness of existing WTO agreements in addressing issues pertinent to energy trade how restrictive practices of energy endowed countries can be tackled under existing international trade rules; existing frameworks for investment in highly capital-intensive energy infrastructure projects;and conditions for access to pipelines and transmission grids; regulation of energy services; bioenergy development and trade; energy issues addressed in the WTO accession negotiations of energy endowed countries; international instruments of resolution of energy-related disputes.

International Trade Law: Interdisciplinary Theory and Practice has been completely revised in its Third Edition, building upon the global successes of its two predecessor editions. Truly a "world law" Textbook applicable in any of the approximately 152 WTO countries, the Third Edition places much emphasis on coverage of developing and least developed countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, highlighting the significance of their demographics, politics, culture, and economic dynamism. Europe and the high-profile trade disputes between the United States and the European Union is another chief focal point of this distinctively comprehensive book. Notably, the Textbook avoids two pitfalls: an American-centric approach, and the suggestion that international trade law is only about the WTO. The Textbook contains 50 Chapters dedicated to all aspects of the field, from ancient and medieval views about the morality of trade to the mysteries of adjustments to Constructed Export Price in a dumping margin calculation. The Textbook covers fully the Doha Round and the new, post-9/11 trade security rules. It includes 6 Chapters on free trade agreements (FTAs), 2 Chapters each on agriculture, services, and intellectual property (IP), and plenty of excerpts from key WTO and U.S. court cases. Overall, the Textbook is both a tour de force and user friendly. Not surprisingly, the Textbook has been used at roughly 100 law schools around the world, and translated into Vietnamese. Each chapter is manageably-sized and offers a user-friendly structure, allowing the flexibility of choosing the chapters that best serve the needs of a professor's individual course. The topics in each chapter help students establish a fundamental foundation upon which to build their knowledge of international trade law. Useful notes appear throughout the text, carefully constructed and organized to guide and challenge students, without abandoning them to trying to play "find-the-ball" on their own, piecemeal. The author sets forth five clear and fundamental themes in the preface which resonate throughout the text, providing not only coherence and integration, but also the passion that will ensure lively classroom discussion and debate. The author covers hot topics, such as protectionism, regionalization, labor, the environment, and sanctions, from both a practical and theoretical standpoint. Interesting and substantive interdisciplinary readings provide further penetration of a subject on not only the economics of international trade law, but on perspectives brought to the field by political scientists, international relations specialists, and philosophers.

International Trade Law and Domestic Policy

Canada, the United States, and the WTO

Critics of the World Trade Organization argue that its binding dispute settlement process imposes a neoliberal agenda on member states. If this is the case, why would any nation agree to participate? Jacqueline Krikorian explores this question by examining the impact of the WTO's dispute settlement mechanism on domestic policies in the United States and Canada. She demonstrates that the WTO's ability to influence domestic arrangements has been constrained by three factors: judicial deference, institutional arrangements, and strategic decision making by political elites in Ottawa and Washington.

Morality and Culture in International Trade Law

Defining the Scope of Article XX lit a) GATT

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Law - Civil / Private / Trade / Anti Trust Law / Business Law, grade: 1,0, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, language: English, abstract: In 2009 the WTO Panel China-Audiovisual Products was the first to rule on an Article XX lit a) GATT defence used to legitimize trade restrictions on moral grounds. So far countries have been reluctant to employ the vaguely defined public morals clause, but trends suggest that an augmented use is to be expected. The WTO has provided little indication as to which and whose morals are covered by the exception which has led to the widespread fear that the public morals clause might be abused to enforce unilateral policies against the principles of free trade. This paper takes an abstract approach to the scope and content of the public morals exception of the GATT. Critically examining the drafting history, legal practice and current scholarly research the note concludes that a large variety of different values are covered by the concept of public morality. However the note suggests that an abuse of the exception is not to be expected as the high boundaries set by the WTO to the application of the exception render the legalization of most policy objectives highly unlikely.
