About the Authors
  • This collection of essays takes stock of the key challenges that have arisen since the entry into force of the General Agreement on Trade in Services in the mid-1990s and situates them in the context of the WTO's Doha Development Agenda and the proliferation of preferential agreements addressing services today. The multidisciplinary approach provides an opportunity for many of the world's leading experts and a number of new analytical voices to exchange ideas on the future of services trade and regulation. Cosmopolitan approaches to the treatment of labour mobility, the shape of services trade disciplines in the digital age and pro-competitive regulation in air transport are explored with a view to helping readers gain a better understanding of the forces shaping the changes. An essential read for all those concerned with the evolution of the rules-based trading system and its impact on the service economy.

    • Content integrates law, politics and economics to provide insights into the methods and politics of negotiating WTO/GATS commitments and inform readers about the rule-making in GATS
    • Collection of essays provides information on current challenges for services trade in the GATS, giving the reader an overview of current issues of international services trade
    • Commentaries critically discuss certain chapters of the book and add insight to a theme. Reader is exposed to competing and conflicting views of GATS regulation, liberalization and negotiations
