As I said in another article that was recently featured in the famed Lex Column of the Financial Times, China has been "shaking" existing rules and even started "making" new rules in the WTO since its accession. However, it seems that the WTO has not been able to "shake" loose the current political system in China.
China’s economy and the WTO
In two articles, we examine how China has been altered by its entry into the WTO ten years ago. First, the economy. Second, the political impact

The European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) is proud to launch the 16th edition of its European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) 2012/2013.
E.MA is an intensive one-year master's programme aimed at educating professionals in human rights, democracy, peace and development. The programme offers an action- and policy-oriented approach to learning which combines interdisciplinary perspectives with skills building activities.
While studying in a multicultural environment, students have the opportunity to share knowledge and skills with leading academics, representing the 41 European universities participating in the programme, as well as officials of international organisations (including the European Union, the United Nations and the Council of Europe), NGO experts and human rights activists.
E.MA is both a residential and an exchange programme: during the first semester students stay in Venice (Italy), while for the second semester they relocate to one of the E.MA participating universities located throughout Europe. The course also includes a week-long field trip to a post-conflict country.
Explore E.MA and find out more at:
We would be very grateful if you could please share this information with all your contacts.
Thank you for your collaboration,
Dr. Angela Melchiorre
E.MA Programme Director

I just posted on SSRN my recently published paper on a possible WTO case against China's internet censorship regime. I first wrote this article in 2010 in the wake of the Google controversy when I was invited to speak at the World Trade Forum 2010.My conclusion in the article was that a WTO case is unlikely to succeed if we only consider Google's problems. That's probably why the USTR reportedly turned down Google's request for a WTO case against China last year. However, the USTR has changed strategy by shifting its focus to some wider issues, which seems to have higher chance of success.
Will we see an "internet freedom" case in WTO against China next year?
