After the Hong Kong meetings in December 2005, what are the key trade and development issues that face developing countries in the closing stages of the Doha Round? Leading economic analysts--including Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz--examine the detailed issues that developing country negotiators must understand. As always, the devil lies in the detail, and it is at the detailed level that the costs and benefits of trade agreements will be determined.

Essential reading for policymakers, government officials, scholars and students interested in the making and conduct of international trade negotiations and policy.
