Post-Uruguay Round Gatt/Wto Dispute Settlement: Substance, Strengths, Weaknesses, And Causes For Concern, Michael Tkacik Apr 1997

Post-Uruguay Round Gatt/Wto Dispute Settlement: Substance, Strengths, Weaknesses, And Causes For Concern, Michael Tkacik

Faculty Publications

Dispute settlement under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (“GATT”) has come under increasing strain in recent years. The major powers often ignore GATT dispute settlement decisions which do not comport with their economic interests. This situation undermines the credibility of the GATT and threatens the system's framework. If dispute settlement under the GATT continues to be ineffective as it has been through much of the 1980s and early 1990s, GATT member states (“Members”) may well lose faith in the system, begin reimposing the tariffs that were present before the GATT, thereby risking worldwide trade war and possibly ...


Crisis Of Chineseness: Value Changes In The Face Of Modernization In China, Jotaro Tateyama Apr 1997

Crisis Of Chineseness: Value Changes In The Face Of Modernization In China, Jotaro Tateyama

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

My association with China goes back more than a decade. I have been familiar with Chinese culture since my childhood. Its history, literature, philosophy, martial arts, kungfu movies, and food-all these cultural attributes have fascinated me for years. However, it was not until my sophomore year at Carroll College that I became captivated by the Reform and Opening Up and contemporary Chinese politics. That is when I learned of the Reform and Opening Up from a Japanese magazine specializing in international affairs. It has been eighteen years since China changed its course of development. The policy called Reform and Opening ...

Opening Attempt: North Korea And The Rajin-Sonbong Free Trade And Economic Zone, Marcus Noland Jan 1997

Opening Attempt: North Korea And The Rajin-Sonbong Free Trade And Economic Zone, Marcus Noland

Marcus Noland

In response to its economic crisis, North Korea has intensified efforts to attract investment to its Rajin-Sonbong Free Economic and Trade Zone. While this effort to promote the zone represents an important start, the zone clearly has a long way to go before it will be able to attract the type of investment envisioned by its supporters. Lack of infrastructure appears to be a severe impediment to the development of the zone. If the infrastructural hurdle is to be surmounted, it will likely to be due to Chinese interest in developing the zone for transshipment trade associated with the economic ...

How Can Taiwan Enter The United Nations?: Implications Of The Roc's Quest For International Recognition, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang

Politics Faculty Publications and Presentations

In 1993 it knocked on the UN's door for the first time since 1971, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) replaced it in the UN. Taiwan requested seven Central American states to ask the ...
