The World Trade Organization (WTO) recently celebrated twenty years of existence. The general wisdom is that its dispute settlement institutions work well and its negotiation machinery goes through a phase of prolonged crises. Assessing the World Trade Organization overcomes this myopic view and takes stock of the WTO's achievements whilst going beyond existing disciplinary narratives. With chapters written by scholars who have closely observed the development of the WTO in recent years, this book presents the state of the art in thinking about WTO performance. It also considers important issues such as the origins of the multilateral system, the accession process and the WTO's interaction with other international organisations. The contributions shed new light on untold stories, critically review and present existing scholarship, and sketch new research avenues for a future generation of trade scholars. This book will appeal to a wide audience that aims to better understand the drivers and obstacles of WTO performance.

  • Epilogue.
Close cases often present a conflict between two or more rules, and many are not at all clear. In forty-five years as a federal judge, I've learned that judging is a more complicated and subtle task. "Benched" is about what a judge really does. Unlike Roberts' "balls and strikes" disclaimer, I try to reckon with the difficulty of deciding close cases—and why the age-old complaint that too many judges "make law instead of just applying it" is a canard. I also seek to dispel the popular misconception that we judges are just voting our personal preferences. "Benched" also outlines nineteen proposals for improvements in the American system of justice. They cover such diverse topics as police misconduct lawsuits, selection of juries, citizen standing to sue government officials, reviving the independent counsel, and death penalty sentencing. Finally, "Benched" is an account of the life I've been fortunate to live.--Prologue.

In 'Blurring Boundaries: Human Security and Migration' scholars from law and social sciences offer a fresh view on the major issues of forced migration through the lens of human security. Although much scholarship engages with forced migration and human security independently, they have hardly been weaved together in a comprehensive manner. The contributions cover the issues of refugee law, maritime migration, human smuggling and trafficking and environmental migration. 00'Blurring Boundaries' critically engages boundaries produced in the law with the main ideas of human security, thus providing a much-needed novel vocabulary for a critical discourse in forced migration studies.
