Implementing the Uruguay Round

Synopsis

The importance of the issues raised by the WTO Agreement cannot be over-estimated. The completion of the Uruguay Round of negotiations has resulted in the creation of international agreements which themselves raise issues of great difficulty and importance in legal terms, and of practical importance for international trade in goods and services and for the entire field of intellectual property rights. This book, written by experts from throughout the world, examines the implementation of the GATT Agreement and its national and international legal and constitutional ramifications. There is a chapter on each major trading entity and selected other nations. Each of these chapters describes and analyses the important constitutional issues regarding the procedures for approving the Uruguay Round treaty agreements and implementing them in domestic law.
