Abstract and Keywords

This article is devoted to the discussion of case law in which many aspects of the WTO legal regime have been clarified and analysed in a judicial manner. It looks at the settlement of World Trade Organization (WTO) disputes, effective systems of remedies, and remedies equally available to all WTO Members. A wide range of fundamental legal issues arise when scrutinizing WTO law on implementation and compliance. This article attempts to explore these questions from a number of different perspectives. It reveals that specific remedies that WTO law offers in cases of continued noncompliance — compensation and suspension of concessions — also require further scrutiny. It shows that the rule of law plays but a limited role in WTO dispute settlement, and that all depends on the politics of power. It attempts to prove that there is definitely scope for a greater role for the law than is often considered.

Keywords: judicial manner, remedies, compliance, implementation, scrutinizing, dispute settlement
