L’OMC et les négociations commerciales multilatérales

  • Siroën, Jean-Marc

The last multilateral trade negotiations chaired by the World Trade Organization met huge problems which could lead to failure. We examine the working of this negotiation process based on rules and power struggles. The increasing number of Member countries, the rule of consensus, the assertion of emerging countries, the absence of a credible and powerful leadership all contribute to increase difficulties. The article terminates with proposals aiming at reducing the latter, namely a better quantification of reciprocity, plurilateral agreements as last resort, the fixing of a reasonable deadline for negotiations.
