This course deals with the international regulation of trade relationships between States and between private parties, in the framework of the globalized world economy at the beginning of the second Millennium. The focus is on the law of the World Trade Organization (WTO) as the main multilateral regulation of trade. The course concentrates on the origins of the multilateral commercial system (ITO and GATT 1947) and the WTO institutional framework including the dispute settlement solution system. A part of the course is devoted to the study of trade relations under EU law and the treaties in force for the Italian State.
At the end of the course, students will understand the working of international trade relations through the direct finding and use of relevant international instruments and related case-law.
