Venice Summer Institute 2015: The World Trade Organization and Economic Development

Time: Jul 20, 2015 9 AM – Jul 21, 2015 2 PM

Address: San Servolo, Venice, Italy

The original intention behind the ‘Doha Round’ of the World Trade Organization (WTO) was to promote the integration of developing countries into the world trading system. The collapse of the round in 2008 led to pessimism over whether the pursuit of such a ‘development-based’ agenda is even possible. And yet a number of scholars have continued to explore the scope for progress to be made at the WTO on development-related issues. The aim of this workshop is to bring together people working on this topic to interact on the progress that has been made in the various areas being explored.

Scientific organiser(s): Dr. Benjamin Zissimos
