Environment and Trade in a World of Interdependence -- ENTWINED
The long-term project Environment and Trade in a World of Interdependence – ENTWINED – supported by The Foundation of Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra, Sweden) – brings together researchers and policy analysts from several countries. The project focuses on the interplay between environmental policies, and the global trade regime (in particular the WTO).
WTO Dispute Settlement Data Set
Petros C. Mavroidis and I have compiled an extensive data set on the Dispute Settlement system of the WTO. The data set comprises approximately 67 000 observations on various legal and administrative aspects, of all WTO disputes initiated since the inception of the WTO 1 January 1995, up to the end of July 2011. The data set tracks each dispute from the initial Request for Consultations, through adjudication, and implementation.
The data set, and the User’s Guide, can also be found at the World Bank website.
The paper “The WTO Dispute Settlement System 1995-2010: Some Descriptive Statistics” (joint with Louise Johannesson and Petros C. Mavroidis), provides some basic observations from the data.
Legal and Economic Principles of World Trade Law
Petros C. Mavroidis and I have been Co-Chief Reporters for the American Law Institute project Legal and Economic Principles of World Trade Law. In this long-run project, economists and lawyers jointly analyze the WTO Agreement and the case law from its Dispute Settlement system. To date, approximately 70 WTO disputes have been analyzed by pairs of economists and lawyers.
Reports written in the project, as well as more information on the project, are available at the ALI website.
