This chapter examines the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) experience in dealing with dispute settlement in bilateral trade agreements. The EFTA Convention is an example that shows the development of dispute settlement in international trade agreements over the last half-century. While the original Convention relied primarily on bilateral and multilateral consultations within the main organ of the Convention, it provided the possibility for the arrangement of an examining committee to make recommendations to the Council. The chapter compares the EFTA Convention with the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU).
