Book Summary:

European trade defence law has expanded sufficiently in the last few years to require a new edition of this definitive work, last revised in 2004. As trade law practitioners and scholars have come to expect from the Brussels law firm Van Bael & Bellis, the fifth edition provides comprehensive, up-to-date analysis and critical commentary on EU trade defence instruments dealing with anti-dumping measures, countervailing measures, and safeguard measures, as well as measures under the Trade Barriers Regulation. It gives detailed attention to all EU cases and other developments at WTO level that have occurred up to December 2010. The emphasis throughout is on practical application of the rules. The authors cover every issue likely to arise in any trade defence matter, including all of the following and more: determining the dumping and injury margins; determining the subsidy margin; determining the causal link between dumping or subsidy and injury; determining if 'Union interest’ calls for intervention; differences between anti-dumping and anti-subsidy legislation; procedural rules applicable to complaints, initiation of proceedings, investigations, protective measures, reviews, and refunds; conditions for accepting an undertaking; measures that may be taken to prevent ‘circumvention’ of anti-dumping measures; rules for the determination of permissible adjustments; rules governing the standing of various interested parties before the European Courts; rules and procedure applicable to non-market economy countries; special rules on products originating in a developing country; allocation and administration of quantitative quotas; surveillance measures; and whether and to what extent safeguard measures are subject to judicial review. For each of the four major categories of trade defence instruments, chapters deal with the substantive rules of the trade defence instruments concerned, the relief that may be ordered under these instruments, and the procedural provisions. The important changes in the EU decision-making process for trade defence cases to be introduced in March 2011 are taken fully into account. An extensive battery of tables and annexes leads the practitioner to all the essential primary source material in the field. As a detailed and practical commentary on the international trade legislation of the Union as actually applied by the Union Institutions, this is the preeminent work in the field. Lawyers and academics involved with trade contracts or disputes need have no doubt that it is still without peer as a guide to EU trade defence instruments.

Book Summary:

''. . . a fine attempt to shed light on the legal rules that make antidumping and countervailing duty so controversial. Bentley, and experienced trade lawyer, and Silberston, a long-time professor of economics at Imperial College-London, team up to translate arcane and often incomprehensible legal rules into common sense language. Their book not a "how to" manual of how cases proceed, but rather a nontechnical review of many obscure but crucial concepts. The book''s appeal is considerably widened by their frequent discussion on whether the rules make economic sense. . . . the approach taken in the book enlightens policymakers, practitioners, and academics on the perverse nature of antidumping and countervailing duty laws. . . . a fine addition to the bookshelf of any scholar interested in studying trade agreements and administered protection.'' Thomas J. Prusa, Journal of Economic Literature ''Philip Bentley and Aubrey Silberston provide a balanced treatment of a complex area of trade law taking action against dumped or subsidized exports. They document in an accessible manner the many problems associated with current rules and practice and provide a practical set of recommendations to improve the administration of trade law in these areas.'' Bernard Hoekman, Development Research Group, The World Bank ''Written by a lawyer and an economist, both of whom have long experience and deep knowledge equally of theory and practice, this book offers a unique, objective and dispassionate analysis of anti-dumping and countervailing action from various aspects, not only what it is and how it is applied but also its problems and ambiguities not least in a globalised and interdependent world where it is easy to do as much damage to one''s own producers and consumers as to the apparent transgressor. Finally, some thoughts are offered as to what might be done to introduce greater rigour and discipline and to resolve the principal defects. A comprehensive guide to and review of this area of trade policy has long been needed; here it is. Trade policy practitioners, lawyers, students, and above all the negotiators should read it. Bentley and Silberston will be the standard work for some time to come.'' Anthony Hutton, formerly Director-General for Trade Policy in the Department of Trade and Industry, London, UK ''With their book Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Action Philip Bentley and Aubrey Silberston provide an eminent addition to the legal and economic literature on the subject of the appropriate use of anti-dumping and countervailing duties. Rather than offering a nuts and bolts how to book, the authors deliver a succinct and relatively non-technical overview of substantive concepts and problems inherent in the use of these commercial defence instruments that will appeal to experts and non-experts alike. While the book focuses on the WTO Anti-Dumping Agreement and its implementation in the EU and the United States, it offers valuable lessons for administrators and practitioners in other user countries also. One may not agree with all elements of their analysis I, for one, would certainly not agree with their conclusion that pre-Uruguay Round zeroing made legal and economic sense but their inter-disciplinary approach is thought-provoking and refreshing as well as timely in the middle of the EU reflection on the use of the anti-dumping instrument that EU Trade Commissioner Mandelson has launched.'' Edwin Vermulst, partner Vermulst, Verhaeghe & Graafsma, Brussels, Belgium; editor Journal of World Trade and Global Trade and Customs Journal; author of the WTO Anti-Dumping Agreement (OUP 2006) ''This book is an excellent study in depth of the practical problems that arise for regulatory authorities in seeking to apply the international rules, as laid down in the various WTO agreements, when requests for anti-dumping or countervailing measures have been received from industry. It offers not only an analysis of the difficult choices awaiting the practitioner but also a rigorous examination of the economic sense, if any, behind the practices that have evolved in recent years. On several occasions this sense is found to be wanting, and the authors make some thought provoking points and recommendations for change. Highly recommended for students and practitioners alike.'' Roderick Abbott, former deputy Director General at DG Trade in the EC Commission, and later deputy DG at the WTO This book, written by a lawyer and an economist both of whom have worked extensively in the field of international trade, offers a challenging and thought-provoking consideration of actions against dumping and export subsidies. Unlike many books in the field which simply set out the relevant international agreements and discuss their interpretation by various regulatory authorities, this book identifies numerous contradictions found in existing law and practice. Many of which, the authors argue, defy economic as well as legal logic. In light of their analysis, the authors propose a number of changes to current law and practice. Whilst they are under no illusion of the likelihood that such changes will occur in the relevant agreements in the near future, it is hoped that through compelling argument they can not only contribute to future debate, but also shape the way these issues are treated in practice. Providing a critical analysis of the commonly used trade measures against dumping and export subsidies, Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Action will be of international interest, especially to regulatory authorities, trade lawyers, trade economists and scholars and students in business school

Book Summary:

This book is the first to bring together the actual practices and procedures in all the major users of anti-dumping. The countries surveyed include all the so-called ‘traditional’ users (Australia, Canada, the EU, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States) as well as the leading ‘new’ users (Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Korea, Mexico, and Turkey). The book provides not only an overview of each of the systems considered but also a detailed reference to the way different jurisdictions have handled specific issues. In addition, the structure for each chapter is virtually identical, allowing for a ready comparative analysis of various topics. These topics include the following: ; applicable legislation, regulations, prescribed guidelines and procedures; decision-making process and time-line; the likelihood of an investigation leading to the imposition of measures; statistics 1995–2011 with details of actual investigations and duties imposed; threshold of injury and calculation of non-injurious price; establishment of causal link; verification reports, hearings, access to information, and other procedural issues; reviews and refunds; and anti-circumvention measures. An introductory chapter provides a comparative statistical analysis of the use of anti-dumping by the thirteen countries, highlighting key features of anti-dumping systems in a comparative way. The introduction also assesses the important impacts of China’s accession to the WTO in 2001 and of the economic and financial crisis of 2008–2009, discusses the treatment of non-market economies, and notes emerging tendencies in anti-dumping reform. This is an invaluable work on a key area in trade (and competition) law, written by a team of well-known experts. With its comprehensive and practical format, the book will be of great interest to practitioners dealing with anti-dumping cases, including trade law practitioners who may have to defend anti-dumping cases in different jurisdictions, attorneys in international trade law and competition law, government officials, academics, and researchers.

Book Summary:

How the WTO deals with regional trade agreements (RTAs) is conceptually and practically one of the most important questions in international trade law. This book clarifies that relationship focussing on one form of regional integration – customs unions – and one form of trade measures – anti-dumping measures. This book answers the question how anti-dumping measures and legislation change if a state is in a customs union as well. In doing so, this book provides a new reasoning why anti-dumping measures are modified in customs unions, as well as a comprehensive overview of how this has happened, a legal analysis on the legality of these changes, and an answer to the question how the different institutional settings have impacted questions of responsibility and attribution. Going beyond this, this book also considers the specific problems that arise in cases of economic integration and disintegration, and finally, the impact forming a customs union has on third parties that may impose anti-dumping measures on states that are members of a customs union.

Book Summary:

The Law of the European Union is a complete reference work on all aspects of the law of the European Union, including the institutional framework, the Internal Market, Economic and Monetary Union and external policy and action. Completely revised and updated, with many newly written chapters, this fifth edition of the most thorough resource in its field provides the most comprehensive and systematic account available of the law of the European Union (EU). Written by a new team of experts in their respective areas of European law, its coverage incorporates and embraces many current, controversial, and emerging issues and provides detailed attention to historical development and legislative history of EU law. Topics that are constantly debated in European legal analysis and practice are touched on in ways that are both fundamental and enlightening, including the following: .powers and functions of the EU law institutions and relationship among them; .the principles of equality, loyalty, subsidiarity, and proportionality; .free movement of persons, goods, services, and capital; .mechanisms of constitutional change – treaty revisions, accession treaties, withdrawal agreements; .budgetary principles and procedures; .State aid rules; .effect of Union law in national legal systems; .coexistence of EU, European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR), and national fundamental rights law; .migration and asylum law; .liability of Member States for damage suffered by individuals; .competition law – cartels, abuse of dominant position, merger control; .social policy, equal pay, and equal treatment; .environmental policy, consumer protection, public health, cultural policy, education, and tourism; .nature of EU citizenship, its acquisition, and loss; and .law and policy of the EU’s external relations. The fifth edition embraces many new, ongoing, and emerging European legal issues. As in the previous editions, the presentation is notable for its attention to how the law relates to economic and political realities and how the various policy areas interact with each other and with the institutional framework. The many practitioners and scholars who have relied on the predecessors of this definitive work for years will welcome this extensively revised and updated edition. Those coming to the field for the first time will instantly recognize that they are in the presence of a masterwork that can always be turned to with profit and that helps in understanding the rationale underlying any EU law provision or principle.

Injury and Causation in Trade Remedy Law

  • File Pdf: injury-and-causation-in-trade-remedy-law.pdf

Book Summary:

This book addresses injury and causation issues in the context of antidumping, countervailing duty (CVD) and safeguard investigations that are covered under the WTO. The book traces the origin and the negotiating history of injury and causation in trade remedy instruments and examines how this requirement evolved in the United States and more specifically in the GATT as part of the Kennedy Code, the Tokyo Codes and later the Uruguay Round negotiating texts. The book demonstrates that terms such as “principal cause,” “substantial cause” and “a cause in and of itself” are not necessarily warranted in such instruments. In the light of the experiences of key users of trade remedy instruments and the WTO Doha Round Rules negotiations, the book argues that causation determination does not require mathematical precision. Econometric or quantitative tools may be suggested, but such tools need not undermine the policy-laden nature of trade remedy instruments. Accordingly, the book suggests the use of weak-necessity and strong sufficiency test as a potentially viable causative framework with regard to injury and causation in trade remedies.

Book Summary:

Keukeleire and Delreux demonstrate the scope and diversity of the European Union's foreign policy, showing that EU foreign policy is broader than the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Common Security and Defence Policy, and that areas such as trade, development, environment and energy are inextricable elements of it. This book offers a comprehensive and critical account of the EU's key foreign relations – with its neighbourhood, with the US, China and Russia, and with emerged powers – and argues that the EU's foreign policy needs to be understood not only as a response to crises and conflicts, but also as a means of shaping international structures and influencing long-term processes. This third edition reflects recent changes and trends in EU foreign policy as well as the international context in which it operates, addressing issues such as the increasingly contested international order, the conflict in Ukraine, the migration and refugee crisis, Brexit and Covid-19. The book not only clarifies the formal procedures in EU foreign policy-making but also elucidates how it works in practice. The third edition includes new sections and boxes on 'strategic autonomy', European arms exports, the EU's external representation, the 'Brussels Effect', and decentring and gender approaches to EU foreign policy. Up to date, jargon-free and supported by its own website (www.eufp.eu), this systematic and innovative appraisal of this key policy area is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as practitioners.

Book Summary:

This comprehensive, up to date and theoretically informed text examines the full range of the European Union's external relations including the Common Foreign and Security Policy. It look at the increasingly important part the EU plays in global politics. The authors argue that the EU's significance cannot be grasped by making comparisons with traditional states. Issues covered include: · the status, coherence, consistency and roles of the EU as an actor, and what being an actor means in practice. · how the field of trade relations forms the basis of the EUs activities · the EU in global environmental diplomacy, North-South relations and in relation to the Mediterranean and East/Central Europe · the EUs controversial relationship to the Common Foreign and Security Policy and defence.

  • File Pdf: europe-discourse-and-institutions.pdf

Book Summary:

This book focuses on how discourse and various narratives contribute to the construction of the European Union as a political actor, thus seeking to challenge the more established approaches to the study of the Union. It sheds light on the way discourses about the European Union are created, perpetuated and then translated into policy outcomes. Most of the contributions attempt to account for the differences that usually arise between discourse and policy practices. The methods employed range from more traditional variants of discourse analysis to other more radical versions that emphasize power, or to critical or differential reading of policy narratives and ethnography. Policy areas such as trade, enlargement, foreign policy and the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) are discussed, while a particular interest is awarded to the European Parliament and the Commission. In doing so, the contributions shed light on the role discourse plays in relation to policies, institutional practices, and value representations at the European level. Moreover, the authors analyse the different actors and structures that create and perpetuate discourses within the EU, highlighting new insights that a focus on discourse can bring to the field of European Union studies. This book was published as a special issue of Perspectives on European Politics and Society.

Book Summary:

Intellectual Property law (IP) - particularly in relation to international trade regimes - is increasingly finding itself challenged by rapid developments in the technological and global economic landscapes. In its attempt to maintain a responsive legislative system that is interacting successfully with global trade rules, IP is having to respond to an increasing number of actors on an international level. This book examines the problems associated with this undertaking as well as suggesting possible revisions to the TRIPS agreement that would make it more relevant to the environment in which today's IP mechanisms are operating. The overall aim is to find an adequate response to the 'IP balance dilemma'. The theme is pursued throughout various topics, including a look at what this means in relation to economy in a country like China, and also considering how IP is increasingly having to reconcile itself with human rights issues.
