About Joachim Åhman

I perform research in the field of public international law, with a particular focus on international economic law (WTO law). Lately, I have also performed research focusing on the relationship between public international law and Swedish constitutional law.

I defended my doctoral thesis at the University of Gothenburg in 2011. In the thesis I analysed how the WTO regulates trade disturbing health protection measures, and how burden of proof issues are handled when such measures are attacked within the dispute settlement system of the organisation.
