About the Authors
  • Economic development is the most important agenda in the international trading system today, as demonstrated by the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) adopted in the current multilateral trade negotiations of the World Trade Organization (the Doha Round). This book provides a relevant discussion of major international trade law issues from the perspective of development in the following areas: general issues on international trade law and economic development; and specific law and development issues in World Trade Organization, Free Trade Agreement, and regional initiatives. Although there are publications on trade and development issues, mostly discussing developing countries, few publications deal with law and development issues of international trade law comprehensively in its key areas. This book offers an unparalleled breadth of coverage on the topic and diversity of authorship, as seventeen leading scholars contribute chapters from nine major developed and developing countries, including the United States, Canada, Japan, China (including Hong Kong), South Korea, Australia, Singapore, and Israel.

    • Presents comprehensive coverage of the topic of international trade law from the law and development perspective
    • Presents a diverse group of contributors
    • Takes an interdisciplinary approach to international trade law and economic development
