Abstract

The anti-globalisation rhetoric of candidate Donald Trump’s election campaign has shaped the trade policy of the new Administration.

The unrelenting opposition by the US to appointments to vacancies in the Appellate Body has caused a crisis in the WTO and given rise to doubts on its commitment to the rules based multilateral trading system.
