About this product
- DescriptionThis book investigates how judicial politics has affected the World Trade Organization's ability to foster cooperation through multilateral rounds of negotiation. The authors advance a set of highly invative arguments and present original evidence that sheds light on the interaction between the judicial and the legislative arms of the WTO. In their analysis, Poletti and De Bievre cover cooperation on the elimination of traditional, at-the-border barriers to trade, as well as on newer, behind-the-border regulation, showing how these interact very differently with the strong judicial institutions of the Organization. They also explore how strong enforcement affects international forum choice in a fundamental way, and how international judicial politics triggers specialisation in domestic interest mobilisation. Written in clear, analytical language, the authors offer deep insight into the political ecomy of international trade relations within the WTO, as well as on the politics of multilateral organisations.
