Negotiating Trade Liberalization at the WTO Domestic Politics and

Negotiating Trade Liberalization at the WTO Domestic Politics and By Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt
Why do negotiations succeed or fail, and why have negotiations on multilateral trade liberalization been so protracted? Negotiating Trade Liberalization at the WTO provides a comprehensive analysis of the Doha Round negotiations by showing how domestic political institutions, the absence of time pressure and a real deadline have an impact on bargaining outcomes. Based on original, primary source research, the book facilitates a better understanding of multilateral trade negotiations by explaining jargon and outlining the interaction between domestic and international politics. It provides scholars, students and policymakers with detailed information on WTO ministerial meetings from Seattle 1999 to the Geneva informal meeting in 2006 alongside analysis of the trade politics of the EU, US, Brazil, and Australia.
Immediately upon finishing, I reread the prolog and final chapter…and will read Negotiating Trade Liberalization at the WTO Domestic Politics and again.
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. It was, quick read, with and just the right amount of romance.
