The role of legal culture in an increasingly heterogenous WTO

Chapter


Abstract


  • As the WTO approaches two decades of operation, both its successes and

    its challenges will be analysed by the organisation’s supporters and critics.

    The most-cited successes of the WTO include its dispute settlement

    system, and the rapidly expanding list of countries that have completed the

    accession process and have become members. However, the WTO has also

    faced major challenges that have drawn strong criticism, most notably the

    failure to conclude the Doha Round, and the expansion of regional trade

    agreements in lieu of global consensus.
