This paper is the introduction to the book Dispute Settlement at the WTO: The Developing Country Experience, edited by Gregory Shaffer and Ricardo Meléndez-Ortiz (Cambridge University Press, 2010).

The paper includes charts that break down developing country participation by region. It highlights the findings of the nine case studies.
