This chapter focuses on the indirect or “third-party” interest of developing countries in WTO trade disputes over market access. It then documents the various economic reasons why a country may have an economic third-party interest in a formal GATT/WTO dispute. The chapter takes a sample of data of disputes involving allegations of excessive import protection, and provides an economic assessment of the developing, third-country liberalization gains associated with bilateral, complainant liberalization gains from the respondent. Finally the chapter concludes.

Keywords:   third parties, developing countries, WTO trade disputes, market access, GATT, trade liberalization
