Suggested Research Strategy

A very basic research strategy for papers dealing with the intersection of international trade law and international environmental law might look like this:

  • Start with books for:

    • background on international trade law or international environmental law
    • broad scholarly analyses of key issues
    • descriptions of the WTO dispute settlement process
    • citations to core primary documents (treaties, disputes, cases) and to other books and articles
  • Continue with articles for:

    • more detailed scholarly analyses of specific issues
    • extensive citations to primary documents, and to other articles and books
  • Retrieve primary sources such as treaties and dispute documents. If these documents raise more questions for you, do new book or article searches to try to resolve those questions.

Preemption Checks

If you are writing an article for publication, you'll need to to a preemption check to make sure that your article is sufficiently original. For advice, start with this guide:
