WTO:Rule-Makng&Dispute Sttlem (LAW-795-025)
Students participating in the Geneva courses need to have applied through the Program on International Organizations, Law and Diplomacy: www.wcl.american.edu/internationalorganizations
This course provides an in-depth look at the World Trade Organization (WTO) with a focus on the structure and internal workings of the WTO. It will also provide an overview of the substantive areas of international economic relations that are covered in the text of the WTO Agreements. The course will specifically look at the workings of the different WTO divisions, including the accessions and rules divisions, the workings of specific committees, the WTO dispute settlement mechanism (including the Appellate Body) and the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Mechanism (TPRM). The course will also explore the relationship of the WTO with non-state actors and civil society groups (particularly those present in Geneva) and will explore relationships of the WTO with other international organizations in Geneva. The program provides a unique opportunity for discussion and interaction with WTO staff, Appellate Body members, as well as WTO member country representatives and will be hosted at the WTO headquarters in Geneva.
