QLLM371 WTO Law: Trade Remedies and Regulatory Issues (Sem 2)

Module description

The module covers WTO rules and principles on trade remedies (anti-dumping duties, countervailing duties and safeguards) and on regulatory measures such as technical regulations, sanitary and phytosanitary measures and rules on services. The module also discusses special and differential treatment provisions for developing countries and current issues of the trade agenda. On completion of the module, students should be able to advice public authorities, private companies or civil society organisations on the consistency of trade remedies and regulatory measures affecting international trade with WTO Law and on the remedies available for breaches of WTO Law. Students which are not familiar with WTO law are strongly advised to take QLLM370 WTO Law: Market Access and Non-Discrimination in the first term.
