About the Authors
  • Examining developing countries within the WTO, it's easy to see there is a disconnect between what was expected from the WTO and what is actually being done for the developing countries. This book examines the different aspects of law within the WTO and how the developing countries are reacting to the Doha Developmental round, which took place after the September 11th attacks. This book also examines the differences between what the developing countries require and what they expect from the WTO which is not homogenous.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a collection of essays whose overarching theme is to assess the positioning of sovereignty in a globalizing world of trade...[set the bar high]...Its emphasis is placed on the term 'special and differential treatment' which encompasses (positive) discrimination in favour of DCs under WTO law...The collection of essays in WTO and DCs is internally largely coherent...represent important contributions on the path to understanding what lies ahead."
    --Hans Mahncke, Leiden Journal of International Law
