Developing Countries, the Doha Round, Preferences, and the Right to Regulate

Developing Countries in the WTO Legal System

Joel P Trachtman

Oxford University Press

In Developing Countries in the GATT Legal System, Robert Hudec argued against preferential and nonreciprocal treatment for developing countries. He did so on the basis of a nuanced combination of economic, political, and legal analysis that showed that this treatment would not benefit developing countries. It is a testament to Hudec's work that his analytical insights seem fresh today, over twenty years later. However, the WTO, established in 1995, is a more complex enterprise than the GATT that Hudec discussed, and the world has changed since Hudec first wrote Developing Countries. This chapter argues that the rise of Brazil, China, and India, among other developing countries, has changed the power constellation in international trade.

Keywords:   GATT, WTO system, Robert Hudec, international trade, developing countries
