The World Trade Organization was seen as one of the most important achievements of international economic cooperation in the post-war period. In recent years, this view has shifted as critics become increasingly concerned about the contributions of the WTO to economic welfare of emerging economies and developing countries. The authors of this volume utilise empirical evidence to develop a new framework in which to understand the impact of the WTO membership on trade flows, costs and benefits, and discussions on the main 'drivers' of international trade negotiations. By underlining the WTO's systems of rules, disciplines and negotiations, and addressing the main criticism against it, this book will ultimately help strengthen the design of the multilateral trading system. This book will be indispensable reading for students, research and policy makers in the area of international trade and development economics
"Do countries benefit from their Membership in the WTO? This book addresses this question andexamines the role of the WTO in the process of economic development of emerging markets and other developing countries"--Provided by publisher
