The Law and Politics of WTO Dispute Settlement

Book chapter by Gregory Shaffer, Manfred Elsig and Sergio Puig in Research Handbook on the Politics of International Law, chapter 10, pp. 269-306

Abstract: What is the relationship between politics and international law? Inspired by comparative politics and socio-legal studies, this Research Handbook develops a novel framework for comparative analysis of politics and international law at different stages of governance and in different governance systems. It applies the framework in a wide range of fields—from human rights and environmental standards, to cyber conflict and intellectual property—to show how the relationship between politics and international law varies depending on the sites where it unfolds.
