For almost two years, President Donald J. Trump’s administration has been blocking the appointment of new members of the Appellate Body (AB) of the World Trade Organization (WTO), preventing the vacancies from being filled and compromising the ability of the system to solve problems. The concern is that the US is weakening the Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU)-based system with this obstruction; in fact the number of AB panelists has already decreased from 7 to 3, which is the minimum quorum for each dispute case, according to article 17.1 of the DSU.
