Compliance Measures

Compliance Measures

(p.123) Chapter Six Compliance Measures
Between Law and Diplomacy
Stanford University Press

This chapter shows how the relationships between law and diplomacy, between meaning and strategic action, and the impact of institutional dynamics, are manifest in contested meanings and practices associated with mobilizing the WTO's compliance mechanisms. Compliance mechanisms define for practitioners the meaning of winning and losing at the WTO and what they can reasonably expect as an outcome of litigation. The first section of the chapter begins by reviewing prior assessments of the use of compliance measures and describing the procedural uncertainties associated with mobilizing them, and the second section examines the domestic politics of compliance. The last section draws on ideas from the sociology of punishment to show the complex meanings of compliance at the WTO.

Keywords:   institutional dynamics, law and diplomacy, WTO's compliance mechanisms, compliance politics
