520    This book addresses the role of domestic courts in the 
       enforcement of international trade agreements by examining
       the experiences of Brazilian and the European Union 
       courts. This comparative study analyzes the differences, 
       similarities and consequences of Brazilian and European 
       courts' decisions in relation to the WTO agreements, which
       have "direct effect" in Latin American emerging economies,
       but not in the European Union or other developed 
       countries. It observes that domestic courts' enforcement 
       of international trade agreements has had several 
       unintended and counterproductive consequences, which were 
       foreseeable in light of international scholarly debate on 
       the direct effect of WTO agreements. It draws lessons from
       these jurisdictions' experiences and argues that the 
       traditional academic literature that fosters domestic 
       courts' enforcement of international law should be 
       reconsidered in Latin America in relation to international
       trade agreements. This book defends the view that, as a 
       result of their function and objectives together with the 
       principles of popular sovereignty and democratic self-
       government, international trade agreements should not be 
       considered to be self-executing or to have direct effect. 
       This empirical work will be valuable to anyone interested 
       in the effects of international trade rules at the 
       domestic level and the role of domestic judges in 
       international law
