(p.272) 7 Conflict Management through Legal Interpretation
The Law and Politics of International Regime Conflict

Dirk Pulkowski

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the potential for avoiding regime conflicts at the level of interpretation. It considers the prospects of interpreting the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO) system and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) cultural diversity regime in a harmonized fashion. In the event that a harmonizing interpretation of the rules within different regimes is not a promising option, decision-makers have little choice but to give priority to one set of rules over another one.

Keywords:   international law, regime conflicts, legal interpretation, WTO, UNESCO, cultural diversity
