9780199600885: Development at the WTO (International Economic Law)

Seeking to open paths for reconsidering the trade and development relationship at the WTO, this book takes into account both the heritage of the trade regime and its present dynamics. It argues that the institutional processes for creating and implementing trade rules at the WTO and the actual regulatory outcomes are inseparable. A consideration of the WTO's development dimension must examine both jointly.

It shows that the shortcomings of the Doha Development Round are in part due to a failure to assess trade rules as part of the legal processes and institutions that produced them. This book devotes significant analysis to the systemic impact of the WTO as an institution on developing and least developed members. From a pragmatic perspective, it provides a coherent and systematic analysis of the legal meaning, the implementation, and the adjudication of special and differential treatment rules for developing members. It then evaluates the different regulatory approaches to trade and development from a more theoretical perspective. The book finishes by presenting a range of proposals for a better balance between trade liberalization and the development needs of many WTO members.

Review:

Skillfully using an institutional framework of analysis, Development at the World Trade Organization explains the meanings of "development" and the concept of "special and differential treatment"...It [offers] insightful and creative suggestions for a fair balance between free trade and the development needs of poor countries...[T]his book is a clear, cogent, succinct, and persuasive account of whether, how, and the extent to which the WTO helps promote development-veritably, a marvelous contribution, both scholarly and practical, on a topic of global importance. * Raj Bhala, Associate Dean for International and Comparative Law Rice Distinguished Professor, the University of Kansas School of Law * Developing countries maintain that their right to development is fundamental to today's global governance. But what does it mean? Congratulations to Sonia Rolland who, with this book, successfully meets the challenge of exploring how development is actually operationalized in the WTO. * Gabrielle Marceau Counsellor, Legal Affairs, WTO Secretariat and Professor, Law School, University of Geneva *
