Abstract: Despite being directly affected by decisions made in panels of the Dispute Settlement Body, the private sectors of society do not have standing to litigate before the WTO. In order to submit private-sector cases to WTO, there is a deep concern of pri

Abstract: Given that most states in the international system were once ruled as colonies or other dependencies of at least one foreign power, many scholars have examined the effects of colonialism on such topics as economic development, trade, democratic stability, and ethnic conflict. Only recently with the availability of more event history data, such as the ICOW data, have some scholars laid out different forms that colonial legacies might take with respect to territorial claims. In this paper, we argue that such large-N studies might miss some intricacies of disputes between neighbors, a former colony and a colonizer, because the majority of former colonizers (mostly Western empires) in the data set came from distant places. Thus, the feasibility of dispute or resolution might depend on factors more relevant to the two countries than the independent variables of the large-N studies prescribe. As an example, we look at one such pair, Japan and Korea, with the territorially disputed islet of Dokdo-Takeshima. Although we start this paper by pointing out one potential weakness of large-N studies, we are also critical of the past case studies of the disputed islet. We show that previous case studies have almost exclusively relied on the historical and international legal approaches, which may be necessary to keep the debate going, but are not sufficient to make predictions or policy suggestions. To better understand the nature and the future of the Dokdo-Takeshima dispute, we distinguish two different types of utility for the states involved, one emotional and one substantive. The total utility each country derives would be some mixture of type I and type II utilities. The mixtures for both countries will depend on both domestic and international factors including historical memories. Then we introduce a simple Nash bargaining model to illuminate the current dispute involving Dokdo-Takeshima and by doing so, predict the likely outcome of the dispute between the two countries. Our results show that, given the current state of the relative importance of the two different types of utilities in Japan and Korea, any kind of negotiated settlement between the two countries is unlikely. In other words, the Status Quo is already in (or very near) equilibrium in the bargaining game between the two countries! This means that for a change in the current dispute to happen, the utility functions of Japan and Korea over the value of the Dokdo-Takeshima must change first.

Abstract: Dispute resolution within the WTO is decentralised. As a consequence, a key to understanding the precise implications of the creation of the WTO for both improved compliance and domestic policy autonomy is why do governments take particular disputes to the WTO?
This paper focuses on the European Union because it is the world's largest exporter and second most prolific user of the WTO's dispute settlement mechanism and because its engagement with dispute settlement has been neglected by political scientists. In particular, I argue that the EU’s initiation of WTO complaints reflects the European Commission’s preferences and its role as both an active ‘gatekeeper’ and as an entrepreneur. Crucially, how the Commission decides to pursue its preferences is influenced by the international political and legal framework in which it is operating and is marginally constrained by the preferences of the EU’s member state governments. The imposition of sanctions by the EU, however, reflects a dual gatekeeper, with the support of both the Commission and a qualified majority of the member governments required.

Abstract: Every Korean child learns in school that Korea formed from the amalgamation of three ancient Korean kingdoms: Pekje, Silla and Koguryo. Pekje and Silla are today roughly South Korea, while Koguryo included what is today North Korea and a large part of Manchuria. In 2006, Chinese school textbooks began describing Koguryo as one of the ancient Chinese kingdoms, which started a diplomatic dispute which is continuing. The paper will compare and contrast these two cases to infer the different international political environmental variables that significantly impact on the intensity of nationalist values in these conflicts.

Abstract: As Financial dispute resolution centers expand and develop to address a growing number of financial related disputes, they must inevitably address the question of their role and function in bridging financial market regulation. Such an examination is rooted in the larger socio-legal dispute processing debate examining how institutional dispute resolution mechanisms effectively regulate the “repeat player” knowledge/power gap through appropriate policies and procedures. Using the example of Hong Kong in comparison with financial dispute resolution models currently in existence in the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore and the United States, this study finds that the appropriateness of a dispute resolution method is arguably informed by whether it takes on a regulatory or non-regulatory role―regulatory dispute resolution modes taking on inquisitorial elements may be preferred when displacing the judicial function as they incorporate safeguards for disputants against the discretion of the third party intervener. But even for non-regulatory schemes, inquisitorial elements aimed at addressing the power/knowledge gap including suggesting the provision of information regarding relevant standards and rules, at least as touchstones, may still be incorporated into consensual models of dispute resolution, which aim to ensure a de minimis level of fairness and confidence in the process.
