Trade Talks Episode 60: America May Be Doing Away with WTO Dispute Settlement

Soumaya Keynes and Chad Bown talk with former WTO Appellate Body member Jennifer Hillman about WTO dispute settlement. They describe the procedural, philosophical, and judicial complaints the United States has with the current way of addressing trade frictions, potential solutions to those problems, and how the American refusal to appoint new Appellate Body members could soon destroy the functionality of the entire multilateral system of enforcement.
