Development at the World Trade Organization

Sonia E. Rolland

Oxford University Press

Developing countries have been complainants in over 150 disputes, respondents in close to 140 cases and have participated as third parties in over 530 instances. They have made arguments relating to development or to Special and Differential Treatment (SDT) in over 60 cases since 1947. As a result there is a significant body of legal analysis that informs the WTO's understanding of trade and development, usually in reference to SDT provisions. This chapter identifies trends in panels and AB analysis on SDT to help developing country litigants to devise more effective litigation strategies and better position their arguments. It also identifies some recurrent blind angles of adjudicators (panelists, AB members, and arbitrators) and proposes some evolutions in the understanding of the provisions.

Keywords:   litigation, dispute settlement understanding, DSU, SDT, special and differential treatment, trade preferences, best efforts, participation, retaliation, enforcement, compliance, implementation, development, procedure
