Max Planck Commentaries on World Trade Law

The Max Planck Commentaries on World Trade Law explain the whole range of world trade law in seven individual article-by-article type commentaries. While the first volume ( WTO – World Economic Order, World Trade Law) serves as a nutshell-type introduction to the WTO, the remaining six volumes focus on specific aspects of WTO law. The second volume ( WTO – Institutions and Dispute Settlement) brings together the WTO institutional fundamentals and the whole dispute settlement. The third volume ( WTO – Technical Barriers and SPS Measures) deals with the most controversial provisions on technical standards, protection of health and environment. The fourth volume ( WTO – Trade Remedies) is devoted to the very specific area of antidumping, subsidies and safeguards. The fifth volume ( WTO – Trade in Goods) comments on the substantial trade in good rules of the GATT/WTO. Finally, the sixth and seventh volume ( WTO – Trade in Services and WTO – Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) deal with intellectual property rights and trade in services rules respectively.
