Metody i kryteria oceniania:

Two possible forms of the final exam:

1. The essay (policy paper) analyzing two dispute cases solved by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) of the WTO. The analysis should be based on the reports of the panels and Appellate Body (AB) of the Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU). The paper should preferably cover the conflicts regarding the application of the same instruments or the same sector of international trade and contain the analysis of the economic background of the conflict and resume covering both cases. The precise topic and outline of the paper must be accepted by the lecturer.

2. The policy paper describing the negotiation position and arguments of the EU Commission or US covering specific sector of TTIP negotiations (e.g. agriculture, SPS, regulatory issues, motor vehicles, pharmaceuticals). The authors should afterwards participate in the negotiation game with the students representing the other side of negotiators. Depending on the progress of Brexit negations the same scheme can also be applied to these negotiations. The precise topic and outline of the paper must be accepted by the lecturer.
