If not this World Trade Organisation, then what?

By Fiona Macmillan


Reviews the criticisms made of the World Trade Organisation's negotiating position at the Cancun Ministerial Conference and considers whether an alternative method of creating international trade rules is possible. Examines opposition to the WTO's approach to the comparative advantage doctrine from supporters of trade liberalisation, the anti-globalisation arguments of its opponents and the politico-structural objections to WTO policy, including concerns of developing countries that most foreign direct investment comes from multinational enterprises. Comments on the WTO's allegedly undemocratic governance and considers how countervailing values might be introduced into international trade by reconciling the systems of public international law with those of international economic law
