The WTO and National Sovereignty

The WTO and National Sovereignty

(p.92) 5 The WTO and National Sovereignty
Who's Afraid of the WTO?

Kent Jones

Oxford University Press

Chapter 5 focuses on national sovereignty and the extent to which countries voluntarily sacrifice sovereignty in order to gain economic benefits from trade. The chapter concludes that WTO cannot unilaterally force its member countries to change their laws, and furthermore it cannot and should not allow one member to alter unilaterally the rights and obligations of other members nor to impinge on the benefits that members received by taking part in WTO negotiations.

Keywords:   national sovereignty, sacrifice, economic benefits, trade, rights and obligations
