Concepts Of Fairness In The Global Trading System
We first discuss why fairness is a condition of the agreements among governments that form the global trading system. We then suggest that fairness can best be considered within the framework of two concepts: equality of opportunity and distributive equity. We thereafter discuss what these mean as applied to market access and its supporting rules as well as to dispute settlement and trade remedy measures. Finally, we make some comments about fairness in the Doha Development Round. Copyright 2007 The Authors Journal compilation 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd
