Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the role of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and multinational corporations (MNCs) in global trade policy. It examines governance in the global trading system with regard to NGOs and MNCs. The major actors in the governance issue are workers, consumers, businesses (especially those engaged in importing, exporting, or competing with traded goods), and national governments, which must play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between institutions and the demand for transnational representation.

Keywords: nongovernmental organizations; multinational corporations; global trade policy; governance
