Description This third part of our series focuses on various legal aspects of direct effect of GATT/WTO law in EC member states. If GATT/WTO law has a direct effect it would mean that an individual on the territory of EC Member States would be able to challenge the EC law as being inconsistent with GATT/WTO law.
