Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses access to justice in the Brazil Tyres Cases. It presents the general concept of access to justice with a special focus on economic law. The series of cases which became known as the Brazil Tyres Cases are analysed, and the author attempts to explain whether there was access to justice at the Mercosur, World Trade Organisation (WTO) and Brazilian levels. The Brazil Tyres Cases are very appropriate for showing some of the several problems related to the administration of justice and represent the only three-layer example of multilevel trade regulation (i.e., at national, regional and global levels) involving a Mercosur Member State. It can be argued that the dispute settlement body of the WTO is the supreme organ of the international trading system. WTO was coherent and that it made clear how it defends its competences.

Keywords: access to justice; Brazil Tyres Cases; Mercosur; World Trade Organisation (WTO)
