About the Author

Edited by Carlos A. Primo Braga, Associate Professor, Fundacao Dom Cabra, Brazil, Visiting Professor, IMD Business School, Switzerland and Olivier Cattaneo, Senior Trade Specialist, The World Bank, US


'Accession to the WTO is a complex, long and unique process. Carlos Primo Braga and Olivier Cattaneo have assembled an impressive collection of literature that analyzes accessions from an economic, legal, political and sectoral perspective, as well as some country-case studies. This is the state-of-the-art of what we know about accessions. The editors bring it all together in the introduction, posing the right and difficult questions and making critical observations. This publication is a must to both understand and improve these negotiations that currently involve the Members of the WTO with 29 acceding candidates.' - Alejandro Jara, Deputy Director General, World Trade Organization, Switzerland
