Global Governance Programme: WTO Case Law

Dates:
  • Wed 13 May 2015 08.30 - 17.15
  • Thu 14 May 2015 09.00 - 12.30
  Add to Calendar 2015-05-13 8:30 2015-05-14 12:30 Europe/Paris Global Governance Programme: WTO Case Law

This workshop undertakes a yearly analysis of all case law by the adjudicating bodies of the WTO (un-appealed Panel reports as well as Appellate Body reports). The Reporters’ Studies for 2014 will cover a wide range of WTO law ranging from classic trade in goods issues to intellectual property protection. Each of the cases is jointly evaluated by an economist and a lawyer, both well-known experts in the field of trade law and international economics. The Reporters critically review the jurisprudence of WTO adjudicating bodies and evaluate whether the ruling ‘makes sense’ from an economic as well as legal point of view, and if not, whether the problem lies in the interpretation of the law or the law itself. The Studies do not always cover all issues discussed in a case, but they seek to discuss both the procedural and the substantive issues that form the ‘core’ of the dispute.
