Associate Professor Ryan Brutger sits for a podcast interview at Social Science Matrix.
What is the role and impact of private firms in monitoring and enforcing international trade law? Professor Ryan Brutger recently sat down with Daniel Lobo, Sociology PhD Student and Social Science Matrix Communications Scholar, for a podcast to discuss Ryan's new article, "Litigation for Sale: Private Firms and WTO Dispute Escalation." This article presents a theory of lobbying by firms for trade liberalization, not through political contributions, but instead through contributions to the litigation process at the World Trade Organization.
