Special Issue - Trade Conflicts, Multilateral Cooperation and WTO Reform

The articles in this Global Policy special issue, edited by Bernard Hoekman and Petros C. Mavroidis, cover trade conflicts, multilateral cooperation and World Trade Organisation (WTO) reform. Since its formation, with a few notable exceptions, the WTO's members have not been able to negotiate new rules on policies. The Doha Development Agenda negotiations, launched in 2001, quickly became deadlocked, and other functions, such as its dispute settlement mechanism, are also not performing well. Calls for WTO reform have, therefore, been mounting. These issues and more are unpick by contributors.
