Ph.D. Thesis 

I wrote my Ph.D. on Mutually Agreed Solutions in WTO, looking into legal and negotiation theory and analyzing the practice. The defense was in April 2019 with the Ph.D. awarded in September 2019.

Here is a short description of my work. 

The thesis was prepared at the Department of International and European Law of Kazan Federal University, Harvard Law School and Fribourg University. The main provisions and conclusions of the dissertation research are reflected in six peer-reviewed scientific papers in English and Russian; presented at the theoretical seminars and conferences at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland), World Trade Institute (Switzerland), University of Stockholm (Sweden) and Harvard Law School (USA). The relevance of the dissertation research, as well as the relevance of the provisions submitted for defense, were confirmed by the written statement of the representative of the legal department of the World Trade Organization.
