In 2005 the WTO Appellate body ruled that the United States' total prohibition on cross border gambling services was unlawful under the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS). The questions raised by the case - whether and how a Government could block service provision on moral grounds - went to the heart of key controversies surrounding international economic law. How do you reconcile a liberal system of international trade in services with national governments' desire to protect social values through service regulation? How much control are the WTO members willing to transfer to the WTO? How much regulatory diversity can the international trading system withstand? This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the regulation of services under the WTO's GATS Agreement. Through a thorough examination of the GATS negotiation history, substantive provisions, judicial interpretation, and ongoing reform process, the book presents a clear picture of how the multilateral trading system justifies and tolerates regulatory diversity. In this respect, the book focuses on the core general principles of necessity and transparency, which would allow the assessment of the consistency with the GATS of domestic regulations in services at a horizontal, cross-sectoral level. In addition, the book reviews with a critical eye the ongoing GATS negotiations on the creation of rules on domestic regulations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This new book is well-researched, highly informative and, in addition to carefully explaining the regulatory provisions of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), dares to express firm opinions on the controversial regulatory issues currently under negotiation in the WTO's Working Party on Domestic Regulation (WPDR)...The book will undoubtedly become a standard reference for both students and practitioners wishing to have a solid understanding of the complex issues involved. * Dale Honeck, Journal of International Economic Law 12 (2) 2009 *
The book...embodies deep knowledge of WTO law...[and] offers a really valuable insight to the content of a myriad of working documents, conclusions, proposals etc. which...are largely unknown to the...public. * Vassilis Hatzopoulos, Common Market Law Review, 2009 *
