This chapter explores the reasons for the increasing EU preference for a quasi-judicial model of adjudication as far as trade disputes are concerned. It describes the current network of EU free trade agreements (FTA) and the traditional diplomatic dispute settlement mechanism which used to characterize all EU FTA. It explains the key features of the quasi-judicial model of trade adjudication in the FTA with Mexico and Chile, and evaluates how these agreements attempted to address the issue concerning the relationship between bilateral and World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement.

Keywords:   trade dispute, dispute settlement, adjudication model, free trade agreements, European Union, WTO
