(p.97) 4 Institutional Managerialism
The Constitutionalization of the World Trade Organization


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the constitutionalization form of institutional managerialism. It argues that under institutional managerialism, constitutionalization occurs by way of management of policy diversity between states by institutions and rules, which are given the imprimatur of a ‘constitutional’ character. It presents itself as a natural deduction from factual developments, which are presented as existing beyond the law, and yet proponents of this approach also aspire to change the WTO system and other facts of the wider economic order.

Keywords:   constitutionalization, institutional managerialism, management, constitutions, WTO
