Most research on the role of developing countries in the WTO Dispute Settlement (DS) system has focused on their propensity to participate as complainants, respondents, and third parties. Much of this line of research has sought to examine claims that developing countries are underrepresented as complainants and/or overrepresented as respondents in the DS system. This chapter examines whether the outcomes with regard to legal claims differ between developing and developed countries. It employs a dataset describing various aspects of the DS system that have been compiled under a World Bank project to take a first cut at exploring what the experience to date suggests regarding this question. The objective underpinning the assembly of the dataset was to systematically compile information on various aspects of the DS system, in order, inter alia, to facilitate assessment of its implications for developing countries.
