This volume brings together a series of essays examining the legal and constitutional relationship between the EU and the WTO. It examines the way in which WTO law affects decision-making in the EU, and the way it affects market integration and market regulation. More generally, it examines the implications of WTO membership for constitutional theory in the EU. The essays look at, and beyond, the role of the European Court in enforcing WTO law, and consider the implications of the WTO's own dispute settlement system for the EU, as well as the responses of other institutional actors in the EU. The book covers a range of substantive areas of EU law, including cultural policy, competition law, trade in goods and services, regional policy, social policy, human rights, and the EC's external relations.
