The Law and Politics of International Regime Conflict

Dirk Pulkowski

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines institutional conflicts within the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). It explains the concept of ‘international regimes’, as defined in international relations theory, and the related notions of ‘regime overlap’ and ‘regime conflict’. It discusses how states, intergovernmental organizations, and civil society movements have appropriated and transformed the scholarly discourses of free trade, culture, human rights, and development. It uses the conceptual framework of regime theory to shed light on the processes of negotiation, power play, and persuasion that occurred from the negotiations of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) to the adoption of the Cultural Diversity Convention within the institutional context of UNESCO.

Keywords:   World Trade Organization, UNESCO, international regimes, regime overlap, regime conflict, GATT, Cultural Diversity Convention
