Ifo Calls for New Dispute Resolution Body at the WTO

Germany’s Ifo Institute has called for a replacement solution to be found quickly for the Appellate Body at the World Trade Organization (WTO). This body will soon cease to be operational, since the terms of office of two of its remaining three members end today, leaving the body unable to make decisions. The US has for some years now been blocking the appointments of new judges to replace outgoing ones.
