    The elements of the approach to disciplining domestic support for agriculture in the Doha round of WTO negotiations are evaluated using data for a selection of OECD countries. Despite a substantial increase in complexity in comparison to the Uruguay Round Agreement, the new approach is unlikely to require real reductions in trade-distorting support. As a result it is unlikely to stimulate further reforms in domestic agricultural policies in OECD countries. RESUMEN: En este artículo se evalúan los instrumentos del enfoque utilizado en la Ronda de Doha de la Organización Mundial de Comercio para establecer disciplinas en relación con la ayuda interna a la agricultura. El análisis se lleva a cabo para un conjunto de países de la OCDE. A pesar de la mayor complejidad de la Ronda de Doha, en comparación con el Acuerdo de la Ronda Uruguay, es improbable que el nuevo enfoque reduzca las ayudas que distorsionan el comercio. En consecuencia, también resulta poco probable que la Ronda de Doha estimule reformas adicionales en las políticas agrarias internas de los países de la OCDE. PALABRAS CLAVE: comercio internacional, agricultura, ayuda interna, OMC
