This chapter examines the workings of the various dispute settlement systems which exist under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in order to determine whether NAFTA actually possesses the advantages and disadvantages attributed to it with respect to dispute settlement. The results reveal that there is a strong interrelationship between certain NAFTA procedures and the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU). The findings also suggest that many existing NAFTA procedures have the capacity to overlap and interweave.
