As the ultimate arbiter in today's global trade regime, the dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a body whose workings should be known to business people and their counsel everywhere. Here is a book—reviewed for accuracy by the WTO but written independently—that provides an uncomplicated but thorough explanation of the system, its purpose, its rules, and the role it plays in the management of the international economy.

Peter Gallagher, a former trade negotiator and a specialist in the Uruguay Round agreements, answers such questions as the following:

  • What sort of disputes does the WTO deal with?
  • Can business or citizens use the WTO dispute system?
  • Is it possible to get a temporary injunction to stop some action?
  • How much does it cost a to bring a case?
  • How far can you keep on appealing a decision?

    As a handy guide to 'bringing a case' before the WTO, or responding to a case already in progress, this easy-to-use book is the ideal starting point for lawyers, business people, or government officials confronted with a disputable trade issue. It is sure to find a place in the working library of people everywhere concerned with international trade.
