Description

Canada at the WTO is the first book devoted to exploring the relationship between the World Trade Organization's dispute settlement process and Canada's political economy. Early chapters address myths and facts about the WTO, introduce readers to Canada's role in the global economy, and explain Canada's objectives in being part of the WTO's dispute settlement process. Froese proceeds by examining the realities of these goals through five dispute settlement case studies: softwood lumber, the Canadian Wheat Board, Bombardier regional jets, split-run magazines, and Canadian pharmaceutical patents. What emerges is a clear picture of how resolutions made at the international level affect Canadian politics, industries, and employment and, conversely, how international governance can be used to protect national policies. Complete with 16 tables and an easy-to-reference appendix explaining the dispute settlement process, Canada at the WTO presents both critical and liberal traditions, offering an edifying investigation of Canada's economy and foreign relations, as well as an overarching discussion of the WTO's practices and effectiveness.
