WTO Dispute Settlement: One-Page Case Summaries 1995 – 2008

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on July 27, 2009

“This updated, third edition of WTO Dispute Settlement: One-Page Case Summaries has been prepared by the Legal Affairs Division of the WTO with special assistance from the Rules Division and the Appellate Body Secretariat. This new edition covers all panel and Appellate Body reports adopted by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body as of 31 December 2008. As has been noted in past editions, this publication was originally conceived in response to numerous requests from the WTO trade community for a brief, simple and straightforward explanation of the key points emanating from the continually expanding body of WTO jurisprudence. Accordingly, the publication attempts to summarize on a single page the core facts
and substantive fi ndings contained in the adopted panel and, where applicable, Appellate Body reports for each decided case. Where relevant, the publication also summarizes key findings on significant procedural matters. Other matters of particular significance raised during the proceedings are listed in the accompanying footnotes to each case. The index enables readers to search the disputes by articles and by WTO agreement.”
