Research Handbook on the European Union and International Organizations

Edited by Ramses A. Wessel and Jed Odermatt

Over the years, the European Union has developed relationships with other international institutions, mainly as a result of its increasingly active role as a global actor and the transfer of competences from the Member States to the EU. This book presents a comprehensive and critical assessment of the EU’s engagement with other international institutions, examining both the EU’s representation and cooperation as well as the influence of these bodies on the development of EU law and policy.

Chapter 14: World Trade Organization (WTO)

Tamara Perišin


The chapter examines EU engagement in the World Trade Organization (WTO). The first part of the chapter looks at the formal status of the EU in the WTO. It also assesses the position of states joining the EU and Member States leaving the EU. The second part analyses the EU’s substantive role in the WTO, particularly in dispute settlement. It examines the extent to which the EU can use the WTO system to promote a regulator friendly system of global governance, and to export its values. It also assesses whether the EU’s trade disputes are coherent with its internal market case law.
