I have heard that the WTO is now in the process of selecting two new Appellate Body members to replace Mr. Taniguchi and Ms. Janow later this year. I have also heard rumors about the US government's nominees but could not find anything on it on the USTR webpage. I have also heard rumors about nominees from China and from South Korea. Yet when I looked on the WTO website on the Appellate Body page, I saw the list of current members, but no information about the ongoing selection process. Has anyone been able to find information on the WTO website regarding who the current nominees are? It would be troubling to think that something as important as Appellate Body selection is being done without basic transparency. I would like to see a page with all of the nominees listed with photos and their bios. Is the WTO going to inform the public about the new members of the Appellate Body only AFTER they have been selected? I would hope that the WTO wants the public to know who the candidates are so that individuals, companies, and NGOs could pass on their views to the selection committee and the governments that comprise the DSB. I noticed that Director-General Lamy gave a speech at Georgetown Law Center on October 22 stressing the need for "active transparency." I for one would like to see more active transparency inside the WTO.
