Summary
"This...book examines the extent and scope of how rules for accession to the WTO may vary between countries, approaching the concerns that some countries enter with a better deal than others. [The author] critiques these additional rules and aims to answer the question of whether new members of the WTO are under stricter rules than the original members, whilst analysing the accession process to the multilateral trading system. Taking an integrated approach, the author combines the results of a mapping exercise of all 36 protocols of accession with a legal analysis of the decisions by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body involving protocols of accession. In doing so, this book provides the first comprehensive analysis of the issue of member-specific WTO-plus commitments in protocols of accession. Whilst addressing the institutional and historical aspects of the WTO accession process, it provides an...update to the existing scholarship on WTO accession, offering coverage of all accessions including those of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and Liberia."--
