Introducing a new eBook: Why world leaders must resist the false promise of another Doha delay

Richard Baldwin, Simon J Evenett, 28 April 2011

a

A

The Doha Round of multilateral trade negations has come to a critical point. Last week the WTO released – for the first time in 10 years of talks – the Doha package in its entirety. These documents illustrate the enormous progress that has been made, but they also clearly outline the deadlock holding up progress.

Why world leaders must resist the false promise of another Doha delay: Introduction to the issues

Richard Baldwin, Simon J Evenett, 28 April 2011

a

A

The world trade system is at a historical fork: WTO members must make a choice.

Simon J Evenett, 12 November 2010

US President George W Bush called the first crisis-related Heads of Government meeting in November 2008. The current incarnation of the G20 is entitled, therefore, to celebrate its second birthday at the forthcoming summit in Seoul. Over the past month, however, concerns have been raised about the health of this infant.

Reforming global economic governance: A strategy for middle powers in the G20

Daniel D. Bradlow, 13 August 2010

a

A

The global financial crisis exposed the G7 as an outdated and ineffective forum for global economic governance. In order to reinforce their credentials and their capacity, the G7 turned to the G20 and upgraded it from merely a gathering of finance ministers and central bankers to one that includes heads of state.
