ABGB 302: Week 3 Case Study Assignment Describe the source of the dispute and the results of the case in WTO (40 points)—U.S.-E.U Beef Hormone case study. Note: 200 words each for the source of dispute and the results rendered by WTO—400 words total. In 1989, the European Union banned the imports of US beef due to the use of hormones in beef production. The US attempted to resolve this issue through GATT but it was unsuccessful because under regulations of the GATT, the EU would have to first agree that they were wrong and needed punishment. That obviously was not going to happen, so the issue was turned over to the WTO. The World Trade Organization maintains international trade between nations and attempts to keep trade fair and honest between countries. The WTO was created to ensure that trade flows smoothly and as predictably as possible. With the EU banning the use of 6 hormones in beef, this meant that almost all US beef producers were unable to supply beef to the EU. All of the hormones have been approved to be safe by the FDA but the EU won’t budge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
