About the Authors
  • Discussion of the governance of global trade and the multilateral trading system is too often dominated by developed-country scholars and opinion-makers, with inadequate attention given to developing country perspectives. Making Global Trade Governance Work for Development gathers a diversity of developing country views on how to improve the governance of global trade and the WTO to better advance sustainable development and respond to the needs of developing countries. With contributions by senior scholars, commentators and practitioners, the essays combine new, empirically-grounded research with practical insights about the trade policy-making process. They consider the specific governance issues of interest to developing countries and acknowledge the changing dynamics in the global economy and in trade decision-making.

    • Gives access to the views of developing country experts regarding global economic governance and, in particular, on the governance of the multilateral trading system and institutional reform in the WTO
    • Contributions from leading academics and policy practitioners ground the book in practical experience as well as the scholarly tradition
    • Showcases the broad range of issues, assumptions and approaches regarding trade governance and institutional reform, going beyond debates on reform of the WTO's decision-making/negotiation process to consider broader proposals and priorities for reform
