‘Settling disputes’ outlines the Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU), the single, highly legalized settlement body of the World Trade Organization. The onus falls on members to make complaints about other members' conduct. First, a consultation period aims to resolve the issue amicably. If consultation fails, the process proceeds to a panel for judgement. The legal nature of the DSU conflicts with the informal nature of rule making, so smaller countries may be subject to laws they did not make. Developing nations are also less likely to use the DSU due to high costs and an inability to enforce sanctions. Reforms combating these inequalities are being considered.
