Abstract

This chapter explores countries’ obligations when they make specific commitments under the World Trade Organization's General Agreement on Trade in Services. It also analyzes the exceptions to those obligations, and offers some concluding thoughts about why more scholarly concern has been expressed about financial service constraints in bilateral investment treaties than about those in the WTO's multilateral regime.
