This article identifies empirical implications from these distinct arguments and tests them on WTO disputes from 1995 to 2006. The study's analytical approach combines a three-step coding of dispute escalation with a strategic bargaining model and statistical backwards induction to account for governments’ forward-looking behavior. It finds strong support for the argument that WTO dispute settlement primarily serves as an enforcement device. It finds much less support for the argument that dispute settlement reduces complexity and clarifies trade law. These results suggest that the role of WTO dispute settlement in generating information on acceptable trade policy standards is less relevant than proponents of the complexity argument tend to assume.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-10-27T09:22:14Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Sattler, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Spilker, Gabriele</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Spilker, Gabriele</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-10-27T09:22:14Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Does WTO Dispute Settlement Enforce or Inform?</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Bernauer, Thomas</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Sattler, Thomas</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
