While the dispute-settlement mechanism under the WTO has become increasingly a centre court for tensions between East and West, it has also highlighted the question of supra-national rules against sovereignty in international economic law.
Antidumping is the nexus of these tensions. A recent Kluwer Law publication, “Anti-dumping in the WTO, the EU and China – The Rise of Legalization in the Trade Regime and its Consequences” by Yan Luo, discusses the development of the rule of law in the WTO in general and the antidumping regime in particular, the role played by WTO dispute-settlement in this process and the EU antidumping regime.
What are China’s experiences from the anti-dumping disputes? Is antidumping governed by the rule of law? What is the future for the EU and WTO after the Lisbon Treaty, the Doha round and beyond?
Dr Yan Luo is a specialist on EU and Chinese trade and competition laws at Hammonds LLP in Brussels. During her years of practicing in Brussels, Beijing and Washington D.C, she has advised governments, including China, and major international/Chinese companies on trade and competition matters.
This book presentation will be introduced and moderated by Roderick Abbott, former Ambassador of the EU in Geneva, Deputy Director General of DG Trade and the WTO.
