More Information
Agricultural Policy Reform and the WTO provides insights into the effects of the Uruguay Round WTO agreement on agricultural policy and global markets, and considers what is at stake in the Doha Development Agenda Round.

The contributors to the book deal with a broad range of topics, including the evolution of domestic and trade policies in the last ten years across developed and developing countries and proposals made in the agricultural negotiation regarding market access, export subsidies and domestic support; new issues emergent in agricultural trade negotiations are also explored, including:

• interaction between national regulatory systems and the deepening integration of the international trade regime
• intellectual property rights protection
• food safety
• quality regulations
• antidumping trade protection.

Finally, the future of international trade relations is discussed, in particular the implications of enforcing domestic regulations to comply with international rules.

This rich collection of research and analysis will be invaluable to researchers, academics and policymakers with an interest in agricultural policy analysis and international economics.
Critical Acclaim
‘Agricultural Policy Reform and the WTO provides in-depth information and analyses and covers many relevant and timely topics related to agricultural policies, trade and developing countries. The volume contains useful lessons learnt from the post Uruguay period and answers its self-imposed question by pointing at unfinished business and future challenges. It is definitely a useful resource and should not only stimulate discussion among practitioners and scientists, but also encourage innovative research and political action.’
– Clemens Breisinger, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture

‘The volume contains contributions from many of the world’s leading agricultural policy researchers. As a result, it maintains a generally high academic standard despite being undeniably policy focused.’
– Emma Aisbett, Journal of Economic Literature

‘This is an important volume, containing contributions by an outstanding group of authors on some of the central issues of the Doha agenda negotiations. Distinguishing features of the volume include its comprehensive coverage of the issues, and the way the authors explain them in comprehensible terms, covering both the historical context and the debates currently raging in the WTO.’
– Will Martin, The World Bank, US
