International rules on trade in services and intellectual property are ’new’ additions to the multilateral trading system, but both have played an important role in the system since their entry. Accompanied by a detailed introduction, this volume contains essays which cover not only the law and jurisprudence of these topics but also the underlying economics and politics behind their incorporation into the multilateral system and continued prominence. The volume provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the development of these controversial and increasingly important areas of international trade law.

About the Series

The Library of Essays on International Trade Law and Policy

The Library of Essays on International Trade Law and Policy
The establishment of the World Trade Organization in 1995 has transformed international trade law and policy from a niche interest into a core stream of international law. This is reflected in the stream of high quality academic writings on the topic, many of which have been influential in the practice of trade law in government departments and at the WTO. This series collects the very best of these, as well as seminal articles from the GATT period which set the foundation for the modern international trade regime. The four volumes in this series, each edited by acknowledged experts in their respective fields, cover the core aspects of international trade law and policy. Detailed introductions to each volume highlight the main issues addressed in the selected contributions, and in addition explore different perspectives, accompanied by references to other writings in the field. This series makes readily available the best writings on international trade law and policy over the past six decades. It is an indispensable resource for all those interested in understanding the intellectual assumptions on which trade law is predicated, its most important controversies, and its broader policy implications.
