International Trade Disputes and EU Liability: Cambridge Studies in European Law and Policy

Autor Anne Thies
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 18 apr 2013
The European Union has become the respondent of several international trade disputes. This book examines the right to compensation for damage resulting from retaliatory measures imposed under the system of the World Trade Organization in disputes triggered by the EU. Anne Thies evaluates the implications of the EU's membership in the WTO for its domestic system of rights and judicial protection. Emphasising the necessity of maintaining EU standards of protection independently of the external dimension of EU action, the book offers suggestions on how the current gap of protection could be filled while upholding the scope for manoeuvre of the EU institutions on the international plane. In addition, it places the issue in its broader context of the relationship between international law and EU law on the one hand, and the discretion of the EU as a global actor and standards of individual rights protection under EU law on the other.

'The book is an impressive analysis from a young academic to produce original research in the field of international trade law and the EU legal institutional approach. It is indeed a brave attempt to understand a rather difficult and complex topic. The book opens a door for further research and detailed policy recommendations and is a worthwhile read for those who are interested in reading about legal aspects of the famous 'Bananas' and 'Hormones' cases.' Christine Otsver, Journal of Contemporary European Research
