Evolutive Interpretation by the WTO Adjudicator by Gabrielle Marceau.

Several types of changes can take place between the conclusion of a treaty and when its provisions call for interpretation, e.g. changes in the political, social, historical or legal context; technological changes; linguistic changes; or changes in the law. Traditionally, interpreters refused to consider changes that may have occurred since the treaty‚Äôs conclusion. Today, many argue that it is more legitimate for a treaty interpreter to take account of these changes and use an ‚Äėevolutionary‚Äô or ‚Äėdynamic‚Äô interpretation. The issue of changes is particularly relevant in the context of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Treaty, because it combines long-standing provisions with more recent ones, and because international trade has evolved greatly, notably with electronic trade (e-commerce) and new means of distribution that did not exist when the WTO was concluded. The different types of changes discussed in this article may be grouped into four non-mutually exclusive types of situations, which will be examined through the prism of the interpretation process set out in Articles 31-33 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT). While different types of evolutionary interpretations can be considered under standard rules of interpretation in public international law, the use of the term ‚Äėevolutionary interpretation‚Äô allows for a more global understanding of the phenomenon, and might have, at the very least, a symbolic value.

Can Blockchain Revolutionize International Trade?

Can blockchain revolutionize international trade?

This is the question posed and addressed by the latest WTO publication, launched 27 November 2018.  The publication examines how the technology of blockchain could be beneficial or transformative in various areas of trade related to the work of WTO.

This publication is available for free consultation and download here: https://www.wto.org/english/res_e/booksp_e/blockchainrev18_e.pdf

An audio recording the book launch event on 27 November 2018 has also been made available here: https://www.wto.org/english/res_e/reser_e/workshop_blockchain_271118_e.htm

Brexit from a WTO/GATS perspective : towards an easy divorce? by Rudolf Adlung.

Virtually all studies dealing with the WTO-related aspects of Brexit, the United Kingdom’s (UK’s) envisaged separation from the European Union, tend to focus on the ramifications for merchandise trade. Services trade rarely enters the picture, reflecting an apparently prevailing view that the reallocation of the existing pre-Brexit obligations requires little more than some drafting changes. This article begs to disagree, arguing that there are a variety of complex legal issues involved. These are related, inter alia, to the conceptual broadening of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) beyond conventional cross-border trade to three more types of transaction and its extension, in addition to the treatment of products (services), to that of producers (service suppliers). The competitive conditions of foreign producers that are established within a Member’s territory are thus covered by the Agreement. With this in view, the article points out scenarios under which these producers are adversely affected by the termination of the UK’s single-market status and the ensuing (re-)introduction of restrictions on market access and national treatment under GATS Articles XVI and XVII and/or the (re-)appearance of regulatory impediments in bilateral trade. In turn, this might provide a basis for the home countries to seek compensation. The article also identifies GATS-scheduled limitations that, because of the Most-favoured-Nation principle, cannot be maintained in trade among independent WTO Members. Depending on their nature, the resulting adjustments might lead to compensation claims as well.
