New book by WTI researcher addresses preferential services trade

‘Developing Countries and Preferential Services Trade’ is the title of a new book by WTI postdoctoral researcher Charlotte Sieber-Gasser published by Cambridge University Press.

The book clarifies the regulatory scope of flexibility for preferential services trade agreements between developing countries by linking the legal interpretation of WTO law with evidence from research in economics and political sciences.

It suggests that the current regulatory framework leaves room for meaningful flexibility for developing countries, and encourages policymakers and scholars to take these flexibilities into consideration in the design and study of trade policies.

The book, published in July 2016, is available to order from the publisher.
