Guide to Dispute Settlement
Peter Gallagher
Price: $ 46

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?
-What processes does a Panel follow?
-What does the Appellate Body review?
-What process does the Appellate Body follow?
-How does intervention by other parties affect a dispute?

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.
