課程概述

The multilateral trading system created by the World Trade Organization (WTO) operates as the fundamental to the world. As (de)globalization challenges increase, international economic relations among states have become more complex and unpredictable, impacting the development of the WTO.
The WTO law covers a wide range of trade issues. In addition to traditional trade areas such as tariffs, quotas and trade remedies, food safety, trade in services, intellectual property are also within its coverage. In the relevant contexts, WTO also reaches out to environment, public health, culture protection and human right. WTO contains an unique state-state dispute settlement mechanism.
A good understanding of WTO law can benefit students in many aspects. It would not only help establish the professional to deal with international maters, it would but also help enhance the capability to explore cross-cutting issues on the basis of a broad perspective.
This course will be conducted in English.
