This chapter considers some aspects of the relationship between World Trade Organization law and general public international law. It will consider matters arising in WTO jurisprudence impacting on the relationship between WTO law and general public international law. This chapter considers, first, the broad issue of whether WTO law is separate from or part of public international law. Second, it considers the nature of remedies in the WTO legal system making a contrast with the law of countermeasures. Third, it considers three aspects of the law of treaty interpretation under specific provisions of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties: the use of extraneous instruments as treaty context under Article 31(2), the meaning of rules of international law under Article 31(3), and the use of travaux preparatoire under Article 32.

Keywords:   World Trade Organization law, public international law, WTO remedies, countermeasures and WTO law, Vienna Convention Article 31(2), Vienna Convention Article 31(3), Vienna Convention Article 32, travaux preparatoire
