1. Elgar International Economic Law series

    Series editors: Alan O. Sykes, New York University School of Law, US, Mary E. Footer, University of Nottingham, UK

    This new monograph series provides a point of convergence for high quality, original work on various aspects of international economic and WTO law. Topics range from established subject matter to cross-cutting issues and the interaction of international standards. Theoretically rigorous, these books take an analytical and discursive approach to the field, wherever possible drawing on insights from disciplines other than law, such as economics and politics, to arrive at a genuinely inter-disciplinary perspective. Proposals are encouraged that primarily engage with new and previously under-developed themes in the field, or alternatively offer an innovative analysis of areas of uncertainty in the existing law. Bringing together work from both established authors and a new generation of scholars, the Elgar International Economic Law series will play an important role in the development of thinking in the field.

  1. Accession to the World Trade Organization

    Accession to the World Trade Organization

    Dylan Geraets
    This detailed and perceptive book examines the extent and scope of how rules for accession to the WTO may vary between countries, approaching the concerns that some countries enter with a better deal than others. Dylan Geraets critiques these additional ‘rules’ and aims to answer the question of whether new Members of the WTO are under stricter rules than the original Members, whilst analysing the accession process to the multilateral trading system.

  3. Reconciling Trade and Climate

    Reconciling Trade and Climate

    Tracey Epps, Andrew Green
    This timely book addresses the interaction between policies addressing climate change and the rules of the WTO. The authors expertly examine the law and economics behind the application of trade rules in the area of climate, including the implications of WTO rules for domestic climate measures, the unilateral use of trade measures to attempt to force other countries to take climate action, and the role of trade measures in multilateral climate agreements. The book argues that while there is a possibility of conflict between international trade rules and progress on climate change, it need not be the case. Thus the major focus is on the ways in which trade measures can aid in addressing climate change. Learn More

    Agriculture and the WTO

  6. The Law and Economics of Contingent Protection in the WTO

    The Law and Economics of Contingent Protection in the WTO

    Petros C. Mavroidis, Patrick A. Messerlin, Jasper M. Wauters
    In this important book, three of the leading authors in the field of international economic law discuss the law and economics of the three most frequently used contingent protection instruments: anti-dumping, countervailing measures, and safeguards. When discussing countervailing measures, the authors also discuss legal challenges against prohibited and/or actionable subsidies. The authors’ choice is mandated by the fact that the effects of a subsidy cannot always be confined to the market of the WTO Member wishing to react against it. Assuming there are effects outside its market, an injured WTO Member can challenge the scheme as such before a WTO Panel. Taking the three agreements for granted as a starting point, the book provides comprehensive discussion of both the original contracts, and the case law that has substantially contributed to the understanding of these agreements.
