Abstract

Arab countries are attempting to broaden their engagement in the multilateral trading system in a manner that has many implications. Not only have some Arab countries either acceded or are in the pipeline of acceding to the World Trade Organization (WTO), but their new commitments coincides with reorientations in their economic strategies. The purpose of this paper is to examine the involvement and implications of the multilateral trading system on Arab countries. The proposition in this paper is that the WTO is not a perfect institution. In WTO accession, politics matter more than commerce or trade. I argue that the Arab region is still marginalized and the international community must assist Arab countries in integrating into the multilateral trading system. This paper was presented at the 16th International Conference of the International Trade and Finance Association in Lodz, Poland, May 11, 2006.
