Overview of the Upcoming Presentation: “Development Agenda at WTO: Doha Round and Beyond”


Dr.Sonia E. Rolland, Northeastern University School of Law, Boston, USA.

Professor Rolland will discuss her recent book “Development at the WTO” (Oxford University Press, 2012). Seeking to open paths for reconsidering the trade and development relationship at the WTO, this book considers the impact of trade disciplines and WTO institutions on developing members. It shows that the shortcomings of the Doha Development Round are in part due to the failure to assess trade rules as part of the legal processes and institutions that produced them. It discusses alternative pathways for balancing trade integration and development constraints at the WTO.
