The second in a series of workshops organized by the Research Group on the Trading System, brought together by CEPR (London), the OECD, the European University Institute (Global Governance Programme), George Washington University's Institute for International Economic Policy (Global Economic Governance in the 21st Century Program) and the World Bank (Development Research Group).

The conference will include presentations and discussion by noted economists, lawyers, and political scientists who focus on various aspects of international trade policy.

Overview: This project aims to explore options for re-engineering the multilateral trading system. The focus is not on immediate negotiating issues such as those that have been the focus of the Doha Round. Rather emphasis is placed on a longer-term set of issues linked to the basic design and workings of the multilateral trading system (MTS). In particular, we focus on the implications of recent changes and developments in the structure of the world economy, emerging issues facing the MTS, and the forms of international cooperation that have been pursued by governments outside the WTO.
