PUBLICATIONS: WTO ANALYTICAL INDEX
WTO Analytical Index — Guide to WTO Law and Practice
The WTO Analytical Index is a comprehensive guide to the interpretation and application of the WTO agreements by the Appellate Body, dispute settlement panels and other WTO bodies. It contains extracts of key pronouncements and findings from tens of thousands of pages of WTO jurisprudence, including panel reports, Appellate Body reports, arbitral decisions and awards, and decisions of WTO committees, councils and other WTO bodies.
The WTO Analytical Index is distinctive because it is the only legal research tool that provides an integrated view of all of the WTO’s work, including the work of members in WTO bodies. The contents are organized by WTO agreement. An index also provides a breakdown by subject matter and by WTO member responding to a dispute. To consult the Third Edition of the WTO Analytical Index, which is updated to 30 September 2011, follow the links further below.
For subsequent jurisprudence and significant decisions and actions taken by WTO bodies, please consult the Analytical Index Supplement Covering New Developments in WTO Law and Practice, which is updated on an on-going basis. For a guide to the interpretation and application of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1947 pre-dating the WTO, please consult the free electronic version of the GATT Analytical Index — Guide to GATT Law and Practice (1995).
