Selected Essays on Antidumping, Subsidies and Other Measures

Gary Horlick

This collection contains a selection of essays and articles by a leading practitioner and scholar in international law, covering nearly two decades of reflection and research.

Gary Horlick is a senior partner in the International Trade Group of Wilmer, Cutler and Pickering.  He has served as head of Import Administration in the U.S. Department of Commerce, responsible for all U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty cases, foreign trade zones and statutory import programs.  He was also Senior International Trade Counsel for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee.  He has been a visiting lecturer or adjunct professor at Yale Law School, Georgetown Law Center, and the University of Bern/World Trade Institute.  He was the first chairman of the World Trade Organization’s Permanent Group of Experts on subsidies.  He has also served on the U.S. Court of International Trade’s Advisory Committee on Rules.  He was “present at the creation” of much of WTO anti-subsidy doctrine, and was deeply involved in the negotiation of the current WTO antidumping rules.  Since the 1980’s, he has been a leading practitioner in the field of GATT and WTO litigation, with experience in more than 20 cases.  He studied international law at Yale Law School and Cambridge University.

Articles here represent a useful view of the main developments in international trade law since the 1970s.  They include “eye witness” accounts of the development of major trade legislation and the WTO agreements on antidumping and subsidies and the implementation of those agreements.  A number of the articles deal with the most pressing point of international trade law — the degree to which supranational dispute resolution systems should defer to national authorities, or provide independent neutral supervision of unilateral national decisions.  The book is a useful “insider’s guide” which “pulls very few punches” on some of the more controversial topics in international trade law.
