This chapter examines the potential application of regional international law in interpreting World Trade Organization (WTO) agreements. It describes the treaty interpretation practice of WTO panels and the Appellate Body and analyses the legal basis for the reliance on norms of other sub-systems of international law and general international law for treaty interpretation in light of the Article 31(3)(c) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT). It considers the relationship between regionalism and international law in the context of the interpretation of the WTO covered agreements.

Keywords:   regional law, WTO agreements, treaty interpretation, Vienna Convention, regionalism, international law
