Geraldo Vidigal is Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam, where he lectures International Trade Law and Public International Law. Prior to joining UvA, he worked as a Dispute Settlement Lawyer at the World Trade Organization (Legal Affairs Division) and as a Senior Research Fellow at the Department of International Law and Dispute Resolution of the Max Planck Institute in Luxembourg. He is the Managing Editor of Legal Issues of Economic Integration (Kluwer) and, since early 2018, integrates the WTO's indicative roster of dispute settlement panelists.

Dr. Vidigal publishes regularly on International Economic Law and International Dispute Settlement. He is currently finalizing a book entitled After Adjudication: Judicial Remedies for Non-Compliance in International Law, to come out with Cambridge University Press in 2018. Following the completion of his book, he will be focusing his research on the transformation of international economic law in response to pressures for it to balance the protection offered to the interests of transnational economic agents with the protection of other interests, as well as of immaterial values.

Dr. Vidigal holds a PhD in Law from the University of Cambridge, a Master’s in International Law from the Sorbonne Law School and a Bachelor’s in Law from the University of São Paulo. He has held a Jean Monnet Fellowship at the European University Institute (2014-2015) and a Marie Curie Fellowship at Bocconi University, Milan (2013-2014), and has been a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Trade and Economic Integration at the Graduate Institute, Geneva (2017).
