New Reflections on International Trade seeks to take a new and refreshing look at some of the issues affecting the multilateral trading system at the present time. Its editors, Jeremy Streatfeild and Simon Lacey, have both been actively involved in the field of international trade for a number of years, in both an academic as well as practical capacity, working first at the World Trade Institute in Berne, and then the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva. They have both been active in advising developing countries with regard to WTO accession as well as the on-going Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations. This volume brings together a vibrant combination of experienced and recognized commentators on the subject, such as Tim Josling (Stanford), Pierre Sauve (LSE) and Rakesh Bhala (the University of Kansas). But it also opens the way for younger talent to express their views on a whole range of important issues, such as Xialou Zhu (WTO Appellate Body Secretariat), Fernando Pierola (Advisory Center on WTO Law) and Manleen Dugal (the Commonwealth Secretariat). Other young and upcoming talent who has contributed to this book include Robson Fernandez (WTO Secretariat), Paolo Vergano (O’Connor & Company) and Laura Atlee (formerly Vermulst Verhaeghe & Graafsma and now of Steptoe and Johnson Brussels).
The volume includes an introduction by Simon Evenett (University of St Gallen) and a conclusion by Roberto Rios (formerly Director of Studies at the WTI and now a partner at Richardson Rios & Olechowski). The volume contains 15 chapters on a whole range of issues spanning institutional and systemic issues, trade negotiations, trade in agriculture, and WTO accession. It is hoped that this volume will make an important scholarly contribution to the field.
The editors would like to dedicate this volume to Bijit Bora, one of the contributing authors that passed away during the work’s preparation. Bijit, a trade economist at the WTO’s Economic Research Division, was teacher, friend and mentor to many of us who contributed to this volume. We were all shocked by his sudden and early passing, while teaching in South Australia. He is sorely missed and it is with a heavy heart that we dedicate this volume to him and to the loving members of his family who survive him.
