Abstract

This year marks the 10th anniversary of China’s accession to the WTO. That period has seen dramatic reforms in China’s economy and increases in the breadth and depth of China’s engagement with the international trading order. Many have given a positive evaluation of China’s engagement with the international trading regime, in particular citing a high level of responsiveness to rulings of the dispute resolution panel decisions (Harpaz). Yet in some areas, China seems to have resisted and even rebuffed international norms and conventions.
