This study is the first to analyze the potential impact of incompatibilities between national regulatory regimes and the rules and obligations imposed by the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS). In the process of arriving at his challenging concluding theses, the author investigates such relevant concepts as the following: the political and ideological dynamics of GATS negotiations; services trade liberalization in regional integration systems, particularly in EC law; the notions of "deregulation" and "privatization"; the GATS obligations of market access, national treatment, and most-favoured-nation treatment; the role of the WTO's dispute settlement organs; and GATS transparency obligations.
