The Collapse of the Doha Round and a Possible Completion of Negotiations
AbstractThe purpose of this article is to capture as much as possible, the defining of past and present Doha Round, seen as a unique opportunity to strengthen the multilateral trading system based on non-discriminatory rules and its preparation for the challenges of XXI century. Basing on an inductive reasoning, the article summarizes the stages preceding the current collapse, its impact on the world, and researchers opinion on the conclusion of successful negotiations in the Doha Round, in late 2011 . We conclude by saying that the impasse caused by the failure to conclude Doha Round could be resolved with the conciliation desire revival between the North and South to participate, unequivocally, in multilateral trade exchanges specific to globalization era.
