The World Trade Organization’s (WTO’s) commercial constitution contains a detailed set of rules limiting the ability of sub-units to restrict trade and even to promote trade. In addition, this commercial constitution has special rules for decision-making, as well as extraordinary capacity for inter-state adjudication.
