Global warming and the world trading system by Gary Clyde Hufbauer ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2006, a team led by the English economist Sir Nicholas Stern issued a striking report that analyzed the economic dimensions of global climate change and called for immediate collective action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This seminal report poses the critical question of how much emissions should be reduced within specific timeframes. To answer the challenge of finding a best-practices approach, Global Warming and the World Trading System looks at the economic aspects of GHG emissions and seeks a policy method to reduce them without adversely affecting global trade. The book begins with a survey of relevant data--such as emissions reports per sector--and evaluates current US climate policy options, focusing on the intricacies of specific Congressional bills. In this vein, this study examines whether the competitiveness provisions now under consideration are compatible with the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and explores the pragmatic opportunities the WTO should capitalize on in order to accomplish two goals simultaneously: (1) Ensure policy space for countries to limit national GHG emissions without sacrificing the competitive position of their own industries. (2) Preserve an open trading system relatively free of discrimination and opportunistic protectionist measures. Should governments use trade measures to encourage other countries to cooperate in the adoption of environmental policies? The authors anticipate the potential negative environmental and economic outcomes as well as the disputes over violation of GATT articles. This book addresses how to avoid serious setbacks in an effort to reduce emissions without compromising the status of both domestic and international carbon-intensive industries. Most importantly, the book considers what can be done by environmental organizations to head off conflict with the WTO -- Product Description

US Special Safeguard on Imports of Tires from China Imposing Pain for Little Gain by Steve Charnovitz ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2009, the United States imposed additional tariffs for a three-year period on imports of automotive tires from China under a special-safeguard provision included in China's Protocol of Accession to the WTO. China challenged the measure in the WTO. The case marked the first WTO dispute in which a challenged safeguard was upheld by the Appellate Body; the first in which an accession protocol was used successfully as a defense; and the first that China lost as a complaining party. It also was noteworthy in that the safeguard was sought by a labor union, and not the domestic industry. This paper reviews the WTO Appellate Body's findings and discusses a number of the legal and policy implications regarding China's Accession Protocol, the Safeguards Agreement, and WTO accession law, as well as economic aspects of the case
Environmentalism confronts GATT rules. Recent developments and new opportunities by Steve Charnovitz ( )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This article discusses recent developments in the clash between environmental policies and GATT rules, with particular emphasis given to the United States. The first part provides a summary of new environmental trade measures enacted by the US in 1992. Section II discusses the GATT implications of these measures and notes the conflict with the unadopted Tuna-Dolphin report (GATT panel report). Part III puts these issues in the broader context of the "trade and environment"debate. The author believes that with the advent of the Clinton administration, there is likely to be greater American pressure on the GATT to upgrade the priority on these issues following (and perhaps even during) the Uruguay Round. The author concludes that GATT should not interfere with national environmental regulations, as long as they are not protectionist.--SCAD summary
Rethinking WTO trade sanctions by Steve Charnovitz ( )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In case of non compliance with a decision under the WTO dispute settlement system, the complaining government may be authorized to impose a trade sanction. Such sanctions suffer from numerous disadvantages, not the least being that they impede trade. WTO dispute settlement might experiment with more nuanced responses to noncompliance that, for example, seek to influence public opinion in the target state."--Editor

The greening of the WTO by Michael M Weinstein ( )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The WTO is often portrayed as a dangerous threat to the environment. But this reputation is largely undeserved, because the trade body has in fact developed principles that accommodate both trade and environmental concerns. There are several steps it can take, however, to make sure the green trend continues."--Editor

The WTO and the rights of the individual by Steve Charnovitz ( )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The WTO agreements comprise a system of obligations and rights for member governements. None of these apply directly to individual actors. Nevertheless, the WTO does reach into the nation-state to guarantee rights to individuals. The following article explores this little-noted dimension of international economic law and proposes ways that a new WTO trade round could build on developments so far in order to strengthen private rights."--Editor
Participation of Nongovernmental Organizations in the World Trade Organization by Steve Charnovitz ( )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper addresses the two major issues relating to NGO participation in the World Trade Organization (WTO). The first is NGO participation in the policy work of the WTO as carried out in various committees, such as the Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade. The second is NGO participation in the WTO dispute resolution process as plaintiffs, amici curiae, witnesses, or observers. The analysis concludes that it is appropriate for NGOs to provide input to international organizations about trade issues, and that there are no good reasons for the WTO to refuse to provide systematic participation rights for NGOs.--SCAD summary
