The course, which lasts one week, starts with an introduction to the WTO and its basic principles. It then focuses on the Dispute Settlement Mechanism. Participants are rapidly engaged in simulation exercises which allow them to develop practical knowledge and skills throughout the various steps of the dispute resolution. An update on recent developments in the area of dispute settlement concludes the one-week long training.

Though the group of participants is composed essentially of government officials from developing countries, some developed countries are also represented as this particular training activity is organized under Art. 27.3 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes, which foresees that training is to be provided to all WTO Members. A complete list of participants is attached.

This course is conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation in French and Spanish.

The WTO Training Institute will organize another similar course in December.
