A key challenge confronting the World Trade Organization (WTO) is to address perceptions that it is not supportive of development. Should the WTO be limited to increasing market access opportunities and negotiating away policies that impose negative spillovers on other countries? Or should the future of the WTO depend on expanding its coverage and changing its modus operandi to more directly address development issues? This book addresses these questions by analyzing the various issues that are on the negotiating agenda of the WTO's Doha round including agriculture, intellectual property, competition policy, services, market access, and special and differential treatment.
