Summary "Contributors address themes, including the evolution of regional arrangements in the Western Hemisphere and the relationship between regional trade arrangements and the multilateral trading system. Robert Hudec provides an in-depth analysis of the provisions and future implications of Article XXIV, the WTO article that regulates regional arrangements. Robert Lawrence examines regional arrangements and their relationship to the multilateral trading system; and Miguel Rodriguez Mendoza tests several Latin American arrangements to see whether they comply with the WTO criteria. Other contributors discuss key comporients of the current trade policy agenda, including market access approaches, trade in services, investment, competition policy, intellectual property rights, trade remedy laws, and dispute settlement. Also examined are smaller economies in trade negotiations, and labor and the environment. The book serves both as an analytical examination of regionalism and multilateralism and a primer for international trade negotiators."--BOOK JACKET
