Abstract: The US Continued Dumping and Subsidisation Offset Act, known as the Byrd Amendment, was passed in October 2000. It was globally condemned for its non-compliance with the US' obligation to international trade laws. The Byrd Amendment gave rise to the largest trade dispute case in the history of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) with 17 countries contesting its legality. The WTO ruled against the US, but even after the imposition of trade sanctions the US refused to repeal the Byrd Amendment.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the position of the WTO as an authoritative trade regulatory body in the face of the US' stand
  • To discuss the US' policies, its international obligations and its commitment to the WTO.
