This book will not only interest legal scholars, political scientists,and public policy specialists, but also international trade lawpractitioners, public officials, and members of the legal profession.
Long Description
Critics of the World Trade Organization argue that its bindingdispute settlement process imposes a neoliberal agenda on memberstates. If this is the case, why would any nation agree toparticipate? Jacqueline Krikorian explores this question by examining the impactof the WTO's dispute settlement mechanism on domestic policies inthe United States and Canada. She demonstrates that the WTO'sability to influence domestic arrangements has been constrained bythree factors: judicial deference, institutional arrangements, andstrategic decision making by political elites in Ottawa andWashington. By bringing the insights of law and politics scholarship to bear ona subject matter traditionally addressed by international relationsscholars, Krikorian shows that the classic division in politicalscience between these two fields of study, though suitable in thepostwar era, is outdated in the context of a globalized world.
Main Description

Jacqueline Krikorian explores this question by examining the impact of the WTO's dispute settlement mechanism on domestic policies in the United States and Canada. She demonstrates that the WTO's ability to influence domestic arrangements has been constrained by three factors: judicial deference, institutional arrangements, and strategic decision making by political elites in Ottawa and Washington.
