CRUZ MIRAMONTES, Rodolfo. El Anexo 2 de la Organización Mundial de Comercio y la participación de los particulares a través del amicus curiae. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2009, vol.9, pp. 415-438. ISSN 1870-4654.
This study is about the possible intervention of entities with a legal interest in dispute settlement procedures that without having the quality of third party considers that its legitimate interest could be affected by the final report of the DSB. The article departs from a specific case at the WTO and from the involvement of a private entity through the figure of Amicus Curiae briefs. An overview of the legal status of these briefs stemming from Common Law in different European and Latin-American legal regimes is made. Finally their incorporation into the Rules of the Dispute Settlement Understanding is suggested.
