Visualise: Claims and Defences

Visualise claims and defences raised or reported

Visualise the proportion and number of claims and defences raised by disputing parties during the initial phases, well as those referenced or addressed in GATT dispute settlement reports by agreement and provision.

When no provision was cited by the complainant, this database has relied on the language used by the contracting parties in the ensuing procedure to see whether the legal basis could be determined, including whether it corresponded to a specific dispute settlement provision.
