WTO governance: a legal cultural critique

Chapter


Abstract


  • As comparatists the world over understand, it is often through consideration of other

    legal systems that we can grow to understand our own better. In a symposium largely

    devoted to issues of governance in Japan, a consideration of governance within the

    World Trade Organization (the “WTO”), the world’s premier international institution,

    may provide comparative insights that may be applicable to governance issues within

    Japan. Thus, readers of these Proceedings will hopefully have ideas about their own

    systems and governance issues sparked by this paper and its methodology.
