    schema:description "The authors focus in particular on the WTO's role as the primary organization through which trading nations manage their commercial interaction, and as the focal point for policy responses in the rapidly changing global trading environment. It is the forum in which many features of the globalization process are considered, and it currently faces an unprecedented set of challenges. The increasing importance of Asian, Latin American, and African countries in international trade relations, the trend towards regionalism, intensification of trade conflicts, the role of business groups and NGOs in trade policy, and the pressures for more leadership within the WTO forum threatened by paralysis are discussed in some detail, since these are critical for the operation of the system and for international business. This edition also includes numerous real world examples to illustrate how the WTO affects the interests of businesses and consumers in both developed and developing countries."@en ;
    schema:description "The third edition covers developments in the trading system from 2000 to mid 2009, including an integral treatment of the Doha Round; it adds and updates material on dispute settlement, the use of contingent protection, the expansion of trade in services, the increasing role of developing countries and the accession of China; it discusses the failure of the WTO to expand its coverage to competition and investment policies; the implications of the rapid expansion of preferential trade agreements; and recent efforts to work with other organizations to increase development assistance for trade projects in developing countries ("aid for trade"). It also integrates recent scholarship in both the economic and political science/international relations fields on international cooperation in the trade area."@en ;
