Example text

Such a breach can be perfectly rational if the resulting (significant) time it takes for the case to be heard, appeals to be completed, and retaliation to be approved permits domestic industries to adjust and critical political events—for example, elections—to pass. In such situations (as the steel case makes clear), breach functions as a sort of political safety valve whose effectiveness rests in large part on the lack of provisions for recovering damages through WTO cases. The benefits achieved during the period between breach and retaliation are essentially costless for the offending party, unless, of course, the original violation triggers a tit-for-tat spiral of counterbreach.

The parties to the dispute are first required to engage in consultation. If these consultations are unsatisfactory, a complainant can request the establishment of a panel to hear the case within 60 days. To establish such a panel, the WTO DSB (the WTO members) draws on a roster of potential panelists nominated by WTO members. The panel then examines the case; after issuing an interim report, it delivers a final report with conclusions and, at its discretion, it provides suggestions as to how to the parties might come into compliance.

As you read the cases, think about the nature of the rules in question, asking, Ⅲ Are the rules really necessary to ensure free trade? Ⅲ Are the rules too vague or unclear? Ⅲ Do the rules threaten national sovereignty? Ⅲ Are they fair? Why Were the Rules (Allegedly) Breached? The cases illustrate that countries may sometimes violate rules quite deliberately, knowing they might eventually pay a price at the WTO; at other times they may do so inadvertently because the rules themselves are complex or ambiguous, or because domestic policies were adopted with inadequate attention to their WTO implications.
