Accession to the World Trade Organization

A Legal Analysis

Dylan Geraets

This detailed and perceptive 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. Dylan Geraets 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.

Chapter 5: Mapping exercise: methodology and typology – commitments on specific matters

A Legal Analysis

Dylan Geraets

Extract

Chapter 5 presents a typology that will enable an assessment of the type of commitments included in WTO protocols of accession. The chapter starts with an assessment of methodologies and typologies that have been put forward in scholarship for describing commitments in protocols of accession. A new, further refined typology is presented that will serve as the basis for the in-depth analysis of accession protocol commitments that will be presented in Chapter 6. In tandem with the presentation of the typology of accession protocol commitments, an overview is presented of which types of commitment constitute WTO-Plus obligations.
