The Dictionary of International Trade Law book was the first of its kind and remains the indispensable reference that students, scholars, and practitioners around the world frequently consult. 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 two Annexes: • Annex A 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. It also boasts a Note on TPP, which is rich in breadth and depth. • Annex B sets out research tools, such as tables on milestones in Chinese history (from early dynasties through modern legal reforms), EU institutions, and U.S. trade statutes. Like the globally acclaimed book, International Trade Law: An Interdisciplinary, Non-Western Textbook, the Dictionary enjoys both legal and non-legal audiences. That is because the Dictionary pays special attention to practical terms and theoretical concepts from international economics and development studies. Among the highlights of the third 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, covering materials published up through the first 20 years of the life of the WTO. • Compilation, synthesis, and analysis of updated data on every one of America's FTAs, and of every one of Japan's EPAs. • Updated historical information about milestones in the economic development of the EU and China. In sum, the 1,500-page Dictionary is the user-friendly tool for students, scholars, and practitioners to navigate through and critically analyze the complex jargon and concepts in trade. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

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.

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.

International experts from law, economics and political science provide in-depth analysis of international trade issues. Attorneys, economists and political scientists adopt a common viewpoint, entitled 'transcending the ostensible'. This approach directs particular attention to the possibility that WTO legal institutions, like other international legal institutions, will function in unexpected ways due to the political and economic conditions of the international environment in which they have been created, and in which they operate. A range of trade problems are considered here. Topics include the constitutional dimensions of international trade law, adding subjects and restructuring existing subjects to international trade law, the legal relations between developed and developing countries, and the operation of the WTO dispute settlement procedure. This will be an essential volume for professionals and academics involved with international trade policy.

This book reveals how conflicting worldviews are at the root of public controversies on policy and trade issues. It highlights the particularly controversial disputes at the level of the World Trade Organization in the case of regulating beef-hormones and GMOs, aiming to show how negotiators of international agreements, members of dispute settlement bodies, and policy makers in general could have recourse to concepts of other disciplines such as epistemology and philosophy in order to address deadlocked legal disputes. Ultimately, the book is a manifesto for independent and critical research.

This book explores the ill-defined and oft-underestimated relationship between the World Trade Organization (WTO) and taxation. By adopting a two-pronged approach, the relationship is examined in terms of the extent to which the WTO legal framework exerts influence upon domestic tax law and international tax policy, and whether it is appropriate for the WTO to play a regulatory role in the field of taxation. The book begins with an examination of the historical development of international trade law and international tax law, and demonstrates that these two separate areas of law are closely linked in terms of their underlying principles and historical evolution. The work then goes on to offer a doctrinal analysis of the tax content found in the WTO legal texts and highlights ambiguities therein.

This timely book explores the developing nature of international trade law,with particular emphasis on World Trade Organization law and its effects within the European Union. In the aftermath of the Seattle upheaval, vital questions are being raised as to the future course of global economic law; its overall legitimacy, implications for democracy, for national social and environmental policies, and for the well being of the world's people. This highly technical subject is rigorously analysed, yet the main legal developments and the major trade disputes are discussed in an accessible narrative style. The first section covers the common historical roots of the GATT and the EC, systems of integration that were part of an idealistic post-war heritage. The book goes on to demonstrate the idiosyncratic development of GATT law, leading to the launch of the WTO in 1995 and the controversial Uruguay Round Agreements which represented the beginning of an enormous proliferation of causes of action and a greatly enhanced legalism for the global trading system.
