This book is concerned with the legal aspects of regional trade agreements — free trade agreements and customs unions. There are currently around 300 regional trade agreements, and these continue to proliferate. As a result, this is becoming an increasingly important part of WTO law. This book investigates these agreements, and examines their regulation under WTO rules. It also looks at the relationship of these agreements to the WTO from the perspective of public international law.
