Transatlantic Economic Disputes

The EU, the US, and the WTO

Edited by Ernst-Ulrich Petersmann and Mark A. Pollack

International Economic Law Series

Recent transatlantic relations have been plagued by a seemingly endless series of disputes over trade and other economic and political interests. Some of these disputes have been amongst the most prominent of the WTO era: the Bananas Case, the Beef Hormones Case and over the application of the Helms-Burton Act. This book analyzes the source of transatlantic disputes, the means employed to prevent and settle such disputes both bilaterally and through the dispute settlement mechanism of the of the WTO, and to identify promising areas for reform.
