The Doha Blues

Institutional Crisis and Reform in the WTO

Kent Jones

Kent Jones, a leading authority on trade policy, illuminates the real stumbling blocks to trade liberalization and highlights the way around them. He shows for instance that the WTO--now with 153 members--has become increasingly unwieldy in terms of concluding trade agreements and he suggests that countries organize around specific platform positions, a strategy that would make the "holy grail" of consensus once again possible. Jones also argues for financial support for poorer countries so that they can participate effectively in negotiations.
