The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) has extended its institutional arsenal since the Kennedy round in the early 1960s. The current institutional design is the outcome of the Uruguay round and agreements reached in the ongoing Doha round (begun in 2001). One of the institutional outgrowths of GATT is the World Trade Organization (WT0), created in 1995. In this book, Petros Mavroidis offers a detailed examination of WTO agreements regulating trade in goods, discussing legal context, policy background, economic rationale, and case law. Each chapter examines a given legal norm and its subsequent practice. In particular, he discusses agreements dealing with customs clearance; "contingent protection" instruments, which allow WTO members unilaterally to add to the negotiated amount of protection when a certain contingency (for example, dumping) has occurred; TBT (Technical Barriers to Trade) and SPS (Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary Measures) agreements, both of which deal with such domestic instruments as environmental, health policy, or consumer information; the agreement on Trade Related Investment Measures (TRIM); sector-specific agreements on agriculture and textiles; plurilateral agreements (binding a subset of WTO membership) on government procurement and civil aviation; and transparency in trade relations. This book's companion volume examines the GATT regime for international trade.

Published in 1997, in this book an attempt has been made to analyze the legal structure of GATT and the WTO as well as those agreements which control trade in textiles. One of the GATT's major failures was its inability to come into line with the new economic reality and the needs of those states who created this system for controlling international trade. Trade in textiles was an excellent example of this. Now, the WTO aims to overcome this problem thanks to its greater pragmatism and its search for solutions to free trade difficulties. The WTO is not, however, the perfect solution. Its highly political character allows room for improvement even though the key to its success still lies with the effective cooperation of member states. As for the textile sector, this new panorama for trade in goods provides it with a new opportunity to finally return to the general legal framework in the year 2005.

This collection of essays takes stock of the key challenges that have arisen since the entry into force of the General Agreement on Trade in Services in the mid-1990s and situates them in the context of the WTO's Doha Development Agenda and the proliferation of preferential agreements addressing services today. The multidisciplinary approach provides an opportunity for many of the world's leading experts and a number of new analytical voices to exchange ideas on the future of services trade and regulation. Cosmopolitan approaches to the treatment of labour mobility, the shape of services trade disciplines in the digital age and pro-competitive regulation in air transport are explored with a view to helping readers gain a better understanding of the forces shaping the changes. An essential read for all those concerned with the evolution of the rules-based trading system and its impact on the service economy.

Die Neuauflage: Ziel dieses Lehrbuchs ist eine überblicksartige Einführung in das Wirtschaftsvölkerrecht. Wirtschaftsvölkerrecht umfasst die völkerrechtlichen Regelungen des internationalen Wirtschaftsverkehrs, die öffentlich-rechtlichen Beziehungen, d.h. Beziehungen zwischen Staaten untereinander und zwischen Staaten und Privatrechtssubjekten, betreffen. Die Darstellung legt einen Schwerpunkt auf die Erläuterung von allgemeinen Prinzipien und Strukturen und verzichtet daher auf eine vertiefte Erörterung zahlreicher Detailprobleme. Die Auswahl der in diesem Lehrbuch behandelten Aspekte berücksichtigt einerseits, was vernünftigerweise von Studierenden in einem Schwerpunktbereich erwartet werden kann und andererseits, welche Themen des Wirtschaftsvölkerrechts von allgemeinem rechtswissenschaftlichen und rechtspolitischen Interesse sind.

Zehn Jahre danach: Der Finanzcrash und seine dramatischen Folgen Als die US-Großbank Lehman Brothers im September 2008 zusammenbrach, war dies der Tiefpunkt der Banken- und Finanzkrise. Und obwohl der totale Kollaps der Weltwirtschaft damals verhindert wurde, ist die Finanzkrise noch lange nicht Geschichte, wie der britische Historiker Adam Tooze zeigt. Er schildert, wie es zu dieser Krise der Finanzmärkte kam und welche dramatischen Folgen sie bis heute hat. Denn nicht nur ist durch die Finanzkrise die Stabilität Europas ins Wanken geraten, sie hat auch das Vertrauen in die Kraft der globalen Wirtschaftsordnung erschüttert – und so zum Aufstieg der Populisten beigetragen.

Seit Jahrzehnten werden staatliche Subventionen durch die Kommission der Europaischen Gemeinschaften bewilligt, welche oft nicht ihr Ziel erreichen, der Umwelt aber zu grossem Schaden gereichen. Aus Sorge vor einem massiven Anstieg sogenannter <I>-gruner- Subventionen wird hingegen unter Berufung auf das Verursacherprinzip der Handlungsspielraum der Mitgliedstaaten bei der Vergabe von Umweltschutzbeihilfen immer starker eingeengt. Ob diese Praxis den Bedurfnissen eines ausgewogenen Umweltschutzes gerecht wird, wird in dieser Arbeit in Frage gestellt. Anhand einer Gegenuberstellung der verschiedenen Umweltinstrumente und ihrer Einsatzbedingungen in der Europaischen Union zeigt die Autorin insbesondere auf, dass der gezielte Einsatz von Umweltbeihilfen einen wesentlichen Beitrag zum Umweltschutz leisten kann, wahrend die Vergabe von umweltschadlichen Subventionen noch entschiedener begrenzt werden muss. Von dieser Pramisse ausgehend pladiert sie fur eine grundlegende Revision des Gemeinschaftsrahmens fur Umweltschutzbeihilfen und fur eine Einfuhrung einer UVP-Prufung zur systematischen Berucksichtigung okologischer Kriterien bei der Bewilligung von staatlich subventionierten Projekten mit erheblichen Auswirkungen auf die Umwelt."
