Description - Behind the Scenes at the WTO by Fatoumata Jawara

The economic prospects of developing and developed countries alike are being shaped by the policies of the World Trade Organization (WTO) on trade, services, investment and intellectual property rights. Based on in-depth interviews with participants in the WTO trade talks, this remarkable book reveals:; The preferred mode of negotiation is behind closed doors; Decisions are often being made without the full approval of developing countries; The poorest and smallest countries do not have the capacity to participate effectively; Illegitimate pressures are brought to bear, and inducements offered, by the US and EU countries
