when 4 February 2019 - 7 February 2019
language English
duration 1 week
fee CHF 1200

This first part of a two week course on international trade remedies will be comprised of lectures and studies that deal primarily with US and EC Anti-Dumping law and practices, how they relate to WTO law (specifically, the Anti-Dumping Agreement), and the disciplines on safeguards in the WTO legal system. The course will cover both substantive and procedural aspects from a practical perspective, taking into account the interest of the main stakeholders usually involved in these matters, e.g. the authorities of the country applying these regulations, the domestic producers, exporters, importers, industrial consumers and the government of the affected exporters. This course is relevant for individuals working in government, industry, law practice, NGOs, and academia who have an interest in trade remedy issues.
