Doha, Development And Discrimination

Author

  • Bernard Hoekman

Abstract

Two distinct challenges confront WTO members - whether to 'save' the WTO'- that is, a multilateral trading system that is based on non-discrimination and most favoured nation liberalization - and if so, how to do so, and determining what role the WTO should play in attaining (pursuing) national development objectives. This paper explores whether moves to achieve the first objective will help achieve the latter, and whether specific actions to pursue more seriously economic development objectives through the WTO could help move the system closer to achieving the goal of non-discrimination.
