Preview

This book provides an account of the World Trade Organization (WTO). It provides a holistic understanding of what the WTO does, how it goes about fulfilling its tasks, its achievements and problems, and how it might contend with some critical challenges. The volume benefits from an interdisciplinary approach. The editorial team comprises a transatlantic partnership between a political scientist, a historian, and an economist. The international team of contributors to the volume includes leading political scientists, historians, economists, lawyers, and practitioners working in the area of multilateral trade. All the articles present original and state-of-the-art research material. They critically engage with existing academic and policy debates, and also contribute to the evolution of the field by setting the agenda for current and future WTO studies. The nine sections of the volume cover: the theory of multilateral trade liberalization; institutional evolution – building up the WTO; the processes behind the workings of the WTO; agency in the WTO; the substance of the agreements; implementation and enforcement; challenges to the system; ethical issues; and reform of the WTO and global economic governance.

Keywords: World Trade Organization; trade liberalization; agency; agreements; implementation; enforcement; challenges; ethical issues; reform; economic governance
