About this book

This book focuses on India’s participation in the WTO dispute settlement system, at a time when India has emerged as one of the most successful and prominent users of WTO dispute settlement among the developing countries. It offers a unique collection of perspectives from insiders – legal practitioners, policymakers, industry representatives and academics – on India’s participation in the system since its creation in 1995. Presenting in-depth analyses of substantive issues, the book shares rare insights into the jurisprudential significance, political economy contexts and capacity-building challenges faced by India. It closely examines India’s approach in effectively participating in the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism including the framing of litigation strategies, developing legal and stakeholder infrastructure,  implementing  dispute settlement decisions, and the impacts of the findings of the WTO panels / Appellate Body on domestic policymaking and India’s long-term trade interests.  In addition to discussing the key “classic” jurisprudential issues, the book also explores domestic regulatory and policy issues, complemented by selected case studies.

Reviews

“The book is written in an engaging style. All the contributors have presented their views in a clear and lucid manner. … the book is an important contribution to the study of legal and political aspects of WTO dispute settlement mechanism and must be read by all scholars of WTO law.” (Sheela Rai, Indian Journal of International Law, Vol. 56 (2), 2016)


“India is a trade powerhouse. Its behaviour in dispute settlement is not confined to questions it asks or challenges it faces, but sets the tone for the emerging nature of multilateral dispute settlement. It was high time someone checked in detailed manner the various disputes that India has participated in and drew some conclusions. This remarkable book is a collection of well thought case studies that will help academics and practitioners alike understand how dispute settlement at the WTO has affected and has been affected by India.” (Petros C. Mavroidis, Edwin B. Parker Professor of Law, Columbia Law School, New York, USA)

“India has brought some legendary disputes at the WTO. Cases such as US—Shrimp, Turkey—Textiles and EC—Bed Linen have helped shape the WTO dispute settlement system and its impact. It is refreshing to revisit these landmark cases and examine their contributions and significance. This book stands out as the first to bring us a comprehensive analysis of WTO disputes involving India that includes critical analysis of the participants in the cases. This book is equally useful for practitioners and scholars.” (Gregory Shaffer, Chancellor's Professor, University of California, Irvine School of Law, Irvine, USA)
