About the Edition

This thesis will present the approach taken to system strengthening in the context of developing countries and their relationship with the WTO dispute resolution system. The analysis will begin by comparing the WTO system to its predecessor, the GATT 1947, and its features as a settlement mechanism. In doing so, the DSU will be presented as a more predictable and accessible system, particularly for developing countries. The thesis will also analyze WTO case studies involving developing countries to determine if the dispute resolution system has been more effective for them in resolving multilateral trade disputes. Procedural matters involving the case law will be addressed, such as third party standing and the remedial mechanism. Lastly, this thesis will propose useful strategies for developing countries to integrate in their long-term and short-term capacity building plans, including advanced training and technology, with a view to more fully incorporating themselves within WTO dispute settlement.
