Sociolegal Studies and Disputing at the World Trade Organization

(p.1) Chapter One Sociolegal Studies and Disputing at the World Trade Organization
Between Law and Diplomacy
Stanford University Press

This chapter notes that the dispute-settlement system of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a complex social forum for economic, political, and symbolic skirmishing between vastly unequal states, and outlines different approaches to the interrelated questions of trade globalization, law, and state power. It shows the foundations for a sociolegal framework for international trade law, aiming to provide insight into the meanings and uses of the WTO and how they mediate but do not eliminate vast inequalities between states.

Keywords:   WTO, state power, world trade, trade globalization, state inequality
