This chapter explores the global trade regime, which viewed substantive equality as the first step towards true equality. It defines the terms substantive equality and barriers-to-trade, and then studies the WTO as a tool to discourage protectionist policies of member states to achieve the goal of reducing barriers to international trade. It looks at IP rights and protection, which is administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and even summarizes the Trade-Related Aspects of the Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement. This chapter concludes with a discussion on the Doha Declaration and its consequences for poorer nations.

Keywords:   global trade regime, substantive equality, barriers-to-trade, protectionist policies, IP rights, World Intellectual Property Organization, Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights Agreement, Doha Declaration
