 Institutional Provisions

Show Summary Details


The institutional provisions of the GATT have been overtaken by the provision included in the Agreement Establishing the WTO. The Agreement Establishing the WTO largely replicated the GATT approach to institutional life: consensus remains the default rule for adopting decisions, except for dispute settlement. This chapter examines GATT and WTO provisions relating to participation, the decision making process, dispute settlement, waivers, transparency, and the relationship with the Havana Charter.

Keywords: GATT; participation; decision making process; dispute settlement; waivers; transparency; Havana Charter
