More than ten years into the Doha “Development” Round, WTO members are all but resigned to the fact that the broad overhaul of the WTO system envisioned in the Doha Work Programme will likely not come to fruition. The Doha Round also reveals major transformations in the place and role played by many developing countries in the multilateral trading system both politically and economically. The continuity of developing country concerns, in the face of major transformations in the dynamics of international trade, raises several fundamental questions: Are the issues really still the same, have the stakeholders failed to updated their positions in light of the more recent developments, or is the WTO as an institution impeding a forward-looking debate? The answer is likely a mix of all three aspects.
