About this book

This book examines non-participatory memberships or why states choose not to use the benefits of international institutions to which they belong. To investigate this question, the author explores why states choose not to litigate within the World Trade Organization’s Dispute Settlement Body (DSB). The research contributes to the literature on global governance and institutions generally, and of the WTO specifically. Additionally, the project includes comparative case analysis of WTO agreements and international disputes: China and Jamaica; Guatemala and Mexico; the United States and Mexico. This volume will interest policy makers, trade professionals, academics, and everyone who is interested in development studies.

Reviews

“The increasingly acrimonious trade disputes between the United States and its trading partners have raised new questions about the World Trade Organization. Dr. Grey’s book could not be timelier, illustrating how states use protectionism as leverage in WTO negotiations. The reader who wishes to understand strategic bargaining among trading partners will find no better analysis than Grey’s fascinating study.” (David C. Earnest, Odeen-Swanson Distinguished Professor of Political Science Chair, Department of Political Science, University of South Dakota, USA)

“Small states constitute most of the WTO membership and yet they rarely utilize the one tool they have to challenge larger states. Using a mixed-methods approach, Dr. Grey delves into small state motivation to use the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism. She digs deeper at the non-resource and more strategic reasons for this trend and fills gaps that exist in the literature.” (Christina Fattore, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, West Virginia University, USA)
