RECENT PROJECTS

Environment and Trade in a World of Interdependence -- ENTWINED

The long-term project Environment and Trade in a World of InterdependenceENTWINED – supported by The Foundation of Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra, Sweden) – brought 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 legal and administrative aspects of all WTO disputes initiated since the inception of the WTO 1 January 1995 till 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 document “User’s Guide” describing the structure of the data, can 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 90 WTO disputes have been analyzed by dyads of economists and lawyers.

Reports in the Case Law Project

 

The E15 Initiative Expert Group on New Industrial Policy and the World Trade System

The E15 Initiative was formed by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development and the World Economic Forum. It brings together experts from academia, practitioners, business, and former policy makers, to develop policy options and conclusions on how the WTO could better face emerging trade and sustainable development challenges.
