This book takes a close look at the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) under the WTO, a multilateral trade agreement with a purpose of liberalising services trade. The book is divided into two parts. Part A looks into the ambiguities present in the trade laws in GATS and how some of these ambiguities have been resolved though settled disputes in the WTO. Part B of the book looks into one particular service sector, that is, education services and analyses the implications of liberalising market access to foreign suppliers in this particular sector. Researchers and scholars of International Economics, Business Economics, Trade Law and policy makers will find the work useful.
