The Interaction Between Europe’s Legal Systems – Judicial Dialogue and the Creation of Supranational Laws

(Elgar 2012)

Giuseppe Martinico and Oreste Pollicino

This book examines the broad issue of the rapprochement between the legal systems of the EU and the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) and asks whether the two systems are converging. While the literature on the issue of the national application of EC/EU law or that of ECHR norms is voluminous, a specific comparative analysis that takes into account the national judicial treatment of both laws has been lacking, until now.

G. World Trade Organization

Mexico files dispute against Argentina on import restrictions – On 24 August 2012, Mexico notified the WTO Secretariat of a request for consultations with Argentina on measures applied by Argentina to the importation of goods. Mexico alleges that these measures “restrict the imports of goods and discriminate between national and imported goods”. Mexico further alleges that these measures “don’t seem to be related with the implementation of any measure justified under the WTO Agreement”. This dispute is similar to those initiated in recent weeks by the European Union, the United States and Japan for the same reason.

Japan and the United States file separate disputes against Argentina on import licensing – On 21 August 2012, Japan and the United States notified separately the WTO Secretariat of a request for consultations with Argentina on alleged import restrictions caused by a system of non-automatic import licensing and other related measures. According to both Japan and the United States, “these measures restrict imports of goods and discriminate between imported and domestic goods”. The measures, according to both complainants, “do not appear to be related to the implementation of any measure justified under the WTO Agreement”.
