Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a case, which arose within a particularly fraught political context, stemmed from a partially failed attempt by the European Union to eliminate the potential threat to the international trading system posed by Sections 301 ff. of the 1974 Trade Act. The Sections of the Act allowed the United States to make a unilateral determination that a WTO Member had breached WTO rules, or had failed to implement recommendations resulting from WTO dispute settlement proceedings, and to adopt unilateral sanctions, in the context of a trade dispute with another country, without waiting for the completion of multilateral proceedings instituted under the Dispute Settlement Understanding.

Keywords: European Union; Sections 301-310; Trade Act of 1974; trade disputes; unilateral sanctions; United States
