The aim of this thesis is to investigate the outcomes of the participation of Latin American countries in the WTO dispute settlement system. The central question of this research is whether participating and prevailing in trade disputes leads to an increase in trade flows between the complainant and the respondent country. The research was conducted through a case study approach which investigated a set of disputes involving countries in Latin America against high-income countries. For each of the selected cases, the analysis focused on trade flows of the relevant goods as well as case-specific interfering factors which might have affected the level of trade between the complainant and the respondent country. The research found that prevailing in WTO trade is not accompanied by an increase in trade between the two countries.
