Abstract

At a time when developments in WTO law have made this field increasingly complex, this concise and non-technical introduction provides a timely
and carefully considered overview of the substantive rules and institutional arrangements of the WTO. Illustrative examples clarify important issues of the law and demonstrate the law’s practical application. Boxed summaries of key rulings in WTO case law highlight the interpretation of the relevant provisions and lead readers to a clear understanding of the meaning and application of legal rules. Recommendations for further reading lend support to readers who wish to engage with current debates. Online resources include links to useful sources of information for work and research within the field. Cowritten by a leading authority in the field, this is essential reading for anyone who wants to get to grips with this fascinating yet challenging field of law.
