REFORM AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE WTO DISPUTE SETTLEMENT SYSTEM

Edited by Dencho Georgiev and Kim Van der Borght

The review of the dispute settlement system of the WTO was written into the results of the Uruguay Round establishing the organization. The planned review after four years failed to reach a conclusion and the review process was extended several times, to be finally taken up as a separate part of the Doha Round.

Reform and Development of the WTO Dispute Settlement System brings together leading players and stakeholders in the process and provides an insight into the many proposals and their underlying strategies. Contributors include the chairs of the DSB special session, Members of the Appellate Body, panelists, negotiators from developed and developing countries, trade practitioners and academics.

The book is edited by Dencho Georgiev, Permanent Representative of Bulgaria to the WTO and Kim Van der Borght, Senior Lecturer, School of Law, University of Hull. It is prefaced by Dr Supachai Panitchpakdi, Director-General of the WTO.
