“Over the last fifteen years, many countries have come to recognize the crucial vole that dispute settlement plays for any treaty system. This is particularly the case for a treaty system designed to address the myriad of economic questions of international relations today and to facilitate the cooperation among nations that is essential to the peaceful and welfare-enhancing vole of these relations. Dispute settlement procedures assist in making rules effective, thereby adding an essential measure of predictability and effectiveness for the operation of a rule-oriented system in the otherwise relatively weak realm of international norms.”

J.H. Jackson and S. Croley

“. . . dispute settlement in the area of anti-dumping will be one of the major challenges facing the WTO system. . . In view of the factual and legal complexity of the issues typically raised in disputes in the area of anti-dumping, effective implementation of this more judicial dispute settlement process will not be an easy task.”
