Who is responsible for trade wars? Are these conflicts challenging the international economic order (IEO)? Is retaliation a solution? What about the peaceful settlement of international trade disputes when the WTO is in crisis?

This Webinar will address the Americanisation of the IEO in focusing on the relationship between economic power and the rule of international economic law in the context of decision-making in international organisations and adjudicative decisions. It will then discuss the responsibilities that a State has and/or should have in the engagement of trade wars.
