Restoring trust in trade: Introduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


In the aft ermath of the global fi nancial crisis, the world has witnessed increasing manifestations of eroding trust in the international trade regime, including Brexit and the Trump administration’s unilateral trade policies. Restoring trust in the international trading system is essential to prevent the rise of economic nationalism and beggar-thy-neighbour policies, which as history has shown are a threat to global welfare and peace.

As a scholar, counsellor of the WTO Appellate Body Secretariat, and, between 2009 and 2017, a member of the WTO Appellate Body, Peter Van den Bossche has addressed the challenges faced by the international trade regime and has tirelessly promoted trust in the multilateral governance model. Th is Liber Amicorum honours his contribution to the development of a ‘trustworthy’ rules-based multilateral trading system, which has left a lasting legacy.
