This volume brings together a selection of papers that were prepared as background analyses for a collaborative research capacity-building project, focusing on the WTO negotiating agenda. Contributors review the results of the Uruguay Round negotiations, discuss developing country concerns relating to the operation of the WTO and implementation of WTO agreements. Contributors quantify the potential benefits of further global liberalization of access to markets for industrial and agricultural products, and assess the relative merits of expanding multilateral disciplines into new areas such as investment, competition, and labor and environmental policies.
